The Archives are a great sprawling structure build upon the cliff forming the south end of the Godrend. Said to contain more books than could be read in a thousand lifetimes, the Archives are the greatest repository of knowledge in the land of Denbora and, indeed, the known world. Containing tomes, scrolls, maps, and manuscripts from thousands of years of accumulated literature and maintained by a sect of scholars known as the Scribes of Marna.
Beneath the archives is a series of chambers known as forbidden repository which contains those tomes, scrolls, and items deemed to be much too dangerous or powerful for anyone to ever use. It is a common joke (but not entirely untrue) amongst Marna initiates that to enter you must be a member of the Gnaritas Council, to read a book you must be a king, and to remove a book you must be damn near a god.
