Ar2600worldmap Candlekeep is one of the areas from the World Map.
What could possibly harm us here? This place is a fortress, and guarded beyond measure.

— Gorion's Ward

Candlekeep is a many towered fortress library that stands on a crag, looking down upon the Sea of Swords. The library is filled with books and scrolls of knowledge. The gatekeeper, Keeper of the Portal, only grants entry to those who can donate a new tome of immense value.

The path to Candlekeep is called the Way of the Lion.

Important EventsEdit

Gorion, my foster father, has informed me that we must immediately leave Candlekeep and set out on a journey. He has given me some gold, and I must purchase supplies for the road, including weapons and armor.
