Candlekeep is a many towered fortress library that stands on a crag, looking down upon the Sea of Swords. Candlekeep is home to an order of scholar monks called the Avowed.
The library is filled with books and scrolls of knowledge. To gain entry to the halls of wisdom, a visitor must gift the library collection with a new tome of immense value. The shrewd gatekeepers accept tomes of no less than 1,000gp.
