King Conan, over the objections of his advisers, is creating a center of learning and debate in Old Tarantia. His purpose is to bring scholars, travelers and merchants from all over Hyboria to Old Tarantia to debate philosophy, religion and matters of the day. This will fund his great library called Palanthus which will store all the knowledge of Aquilonia and beyond so that the flame of knowledge will burn brightly through the future. The invitation will be sent out to all peoples. Aquillonians, Cimmerians, Khitians, Stygians, even Nemedians if they follow the rules are invited. The rules are quite simple.

1. Palanthus is neutral ground. No weapon may be lifted in anger or spell cast in hostility. Failure to abide by these rules may lead to banishment & confiscation of goods or death.
2. All weapons must be peace-bound. Peace binding is when a length of cord or silk is tied in a knot around the weapon so that it cannot be drawn and used without untying the weapon. Ammunition such as arrows or bolts may not be carried into Palanthas.
3. No goading of fellow scholars with the intent of disrupting debate at Palanthas will be tolerated. Dissent and debate are acceptable/ Purposefully trying to sabotage an event is not and will cause ejection and fine to the offender(s).
4. If by chance conflict occurs outside of Palanthas then the keepers of lore are not responsible. Violence is part of everyday life. Only the neutral grounds of the library and their immediate environs offer sanctuary.
5. The term scholar is loosely defined for our purposes here and does not mean academic knowledge. As long as anyone has relevant information on a topic he or she is welcome to participate in the discussion. Anyone who does not have information pertaining to a topic and trying to subvert a topic will be dealt with as if a violation to rule # 3 had occurred.
