The Great Northern Library was one of the libraries constructed by Juvens, the founder of the Order of the Magi, in the Old Time. It is now the home of the MagusBayaz, the First of the Magi. It is located in the southern region of The North in the hills near a large lake. The route to the library is a protected by two great standing stones, written with the word of Juvens, so that no man with violence in mind can find the path to the library. The library complex is surrounded by a weathered and mossy wall built into the cliff, and can be entered by a single gate across a bridge over a deep gorge. Within the walls is a small village of people and the library itself; three great, tapering towers built into the mountainside ahead, joined at their bases but separating higher up.
