In The Footprints of Ancients
Avalon Monastery of the Four Winds
A monastery in the central Tidym jungle. The Avalon monastery has maintained a degree of learning in its monks even in the Dark Age. The monks who reside and work at the monastery are highly insular, but know much of the outside world from the books left in the building that became the monastery. The collection of books and scrolls and maps, many still deciphered, that is held within the monastery is likely unmatched in the entire region, though few but the monks themselves are even aware of the monastery’s existence. None of the monks are entirely certain what the buildings original purpose was, as it does not appear to be referenced in any of the texts they hold there, but it has been remade into a sustainable enclave for its monks, where they can expand their knowledge and works.
