  5. Standing in the boundary between light and shadow, a Dawnstrider Guard silently appraises all within sight. Surrounded by an aura of magical energy, a Shallamese djinn watches the area with dark, mysterious eyes. A runic totem is planted in the ground. Shimmering elemental robes swirling around  him, a Magus of the Guard holds his staff at the ready. A large chest made of glowing crystal rests  on a small table. Rising out of the ground, a crystalline plinth contains ornate writing. A  Priestess of the Guard stands here, keeping watch over the city. A sigil in the shape of a small,  rectangular monolith is on the ground. There are 3 cube sigils in 3 groups here. An heraldic pennon  flies here, bearing the city arms of Shallam. A proud kirin awaits here, eyes smouldering and scales  alight as it radiates a sense of righteousness. A brightly coloured jack-in-the-box rests quietly on  the ground. An elegant white letter is in danger of being soiled here. A shimmering orb lies here,  illuminating the surrounding area with a slight glow. Wings flaring, a pegasus tosses his regal head  impatiently. The shining figure of a guardian angel floats in the air here. A stool is here. A  wooden bench is here. A large barracks is here providing the city's forces with rest and refuge.
  6. Adherent of Light, Silas Maynard is here. He wields a solid platinum mace adorned with gold in his  left hand and a platinum-plated shield edged with gold bearing the city arms of Shallam in his right. Page Garlan is here. He wields an ornate steel rapier in each hand.

  18. Constructed of the same granite stone as the rest of the building, dark wooden panelling lines the lower half of each surrounding wall here. Countless varieties of comfortable seating arrangements are available in this deceptively large room, accompanied by great, colourful pillows thrown in haphazard heaps over the thickly woven carpets, and down-stuffed cushions lying upon the large couches. Sturdy wooden tables and matching chairs stand shadowed in the dark corners of the chamber, while individual armchairs can be seen placed at sporadic intervals all the way around the room. The most remarkable pieces of furniture in the room are a series of large bookcases housing the collective works of Paladins, Guardians, and Templars. A candelabrum hanging in a central position provides adequate lighting for the entire room, while smaller sconces along the walls permit reading well into the night. A runic totem is planted solidly in the ground. There are 2 monolith sigils in 2 groups here. A frost wyrm stands out of the way, surveying the area with interest. A dark brown oak bookcase is here. A dark brown mahogany bookcase is here. Page Garlan is here. He wields an ornate steel rapier in each hand.

  32. You ask Garlan, "Do you swear to become a Knight without parallel, to not only stave the flow of Chaos, to save the realm from the oppressive forces of Evil, to wield Light against those who would spread Darkness, but to Grow and live in the Light's name?"
