His golden eyes looked exhausted: "I will never be able to recover what I have lost in Feywild, but this is definitely a new beginning" said Arasys. He knew only he could hear himself, still he carefully adjusted the books to make sure they are all symmetrically aligned for readers' eyes. After all, tomorrow his own archives will be visible to many, who are interested in arcane arts and Sosarian lore. Slowly he climbed the stairs to his bedroom, grabbed the nearest blank parchment and melodically whispered: "Uus Mani" then started to push his bed to fully reveal the pentagram beneath it. After few seconds, he dropped the parchment on pentagram's central point and sat on his chair. "First things first" he told himself followed by few sips from his Trinsician peach wine -which was nowhere near as good as any elven wine in his opinionated head- , then reached for his pouch to grab a bunch of bloodmoss and mandrake roots. He let out a short sigh and thought it is probably going to be the last spell he will cast before sun rises again: words "Ort Por Ylem" echoed in the room as Arasys was focusing on both his pen and blank parchment, finally ink started to take shape: " Archive Membership: To better enrich the arcane knowledge within our village, it is crucial we share the results of our own arcane experiments, as well as our common knowledge regarding Sosarian regions, races, beliefs, culture, and latest events we have witnessed.

As he finished the last sentence through concentration and magic, he thought about how much he could learn from those whom he never met yet then smiled with passion. At last, it was perfect time for him to enjoy the possibilities offered by further arcane knowledge and rest of the human made wine he despised.
