The Draakhorn was a gift from Tiamat in the war between dragons and giants. It was once the horn of her
ancient red dragon consort, Ephelomon, that she gave to dragonkind to help them in their war against the giants.

The library is filled with books and scrolls of knowledge, and it was the home of the great seer Alaundo. It has always been protected by the Weave of Magic, patterns upon patterns of spells that prevented even the mightiest of wizards from compromising the library. That is, until today…
