The Legacy of Jaedyn Darksight
This is a short scroll, lost in the depths of the Erdaneos Library due to a misfiling. It describes a cipher designed by the faen Jaedyn Darksight, a prominent member of the The Council of Magisters. With the cipher key inscribed in this scroll, it would be possible to decode Jaedyn’s written work. Very little of this work can be found in Erdaneos; historical records show that Jaedyn withdrew to her sanctum in the Harrowdeep after the Council of Magisters disbanded.
Jaedyn’s sanctum has been abandoned for almost a century after the disappearance of its mistress some 90 years ago. She was a proponent of the Magister Magocracy, and wished to establish a sovereign land ruled by spellcasters. Legend has it that Jaedyn knew an exotic spell that let her preserve the Council’s collected wisdom even as they disbanded, and although it’s certainly well guarded, this cipher key could unlock a treasure trove of knowledge – to anyone who dares brave the wilds of the Harrowdeep, that is.
