Palanthas – On Kirinor the famed Chronicler Astinus of Palanthas returned to the Great Library of Palanthas.

After months of painstaking labor, local sculptor Deitrich Kullen today presented the Great Library with a marble sculpture of Astinus. The sculpture shows Astinus holding the world of Krynn in one hand and a quill in the other. Kullen told the Herald, "For years Astinus has been missing from the Library. Though he is long gone, his memory remains. Now his effigy, if not his presence, will once more grace the Great Library."

A representative of the Great Library accepted the sculpture on behalf of the Master Chronicler. A team of 30 men were required to set the statue in place. A small ceremony was held to commemorate the statue.
