"Savages - you'd think they'd be stupid. If you think that, you'll be dead afore Summersong. Savages are cruel and vicious - but they're also smart. Smart enough to sink a sword in your belly or fry your hide with fire before you even know they're there."
Welcome, my dear. You have chosen to learn about about Outland, and her history. It is always wise to learn of one's roots. Failure to heed the lessons of the past dooms us to a blinded future. Allow me to introduce myself. I am Mentor Andarietta Mendensong, Loregiver and Chief Scribe of the Athenaeum here in Arin. I know, in a city like Stronghold, Loregiver and Chief Scribe would be two seperate jobs - but in a small village such as Arin, we must all do our part to fill in the gaps.
As Araskor is fond of saying "We define ourself through our choices". Well, you have plenty of choices here, my dear. I have identified several tomes which make a good start in understanding the history of Arin. These books are listed below. Please, take your time, and read to your hearts content. As always, feel free to ask if you have any questions.
