Mundane Texts

The covenant's mundane library has grown over the years, and now it contains an impressive array of tomes on all manner of subjects. One of the largest sections of the library is devoted to texts on the old pagan gods, which Idris obtained from Cad Gadu. Some years ago, a fire started by Idris' son, Ieuan, set much of the library ablaze, destroying or damaging several priceless works. Further texts were lost when the library collapsed following the death of Archimagus Jolyon.
