Ruined Athenaeum of Vicon

The hilltop Athenaeum of Vicon was abandoned and left to collapse when her worship fell out of fashion with the change in empires in old Zorisz. The goddess of visions, ViconE28099s priesthood used this structure and the dry climate it was built in to store scrolls and codices recording the various visions and dreams attributed to her interventions over the ages. From major works such as the Prophecies of the Seven Worms and the Ravings of the Empress in Amber (and the many texts analyzing these works) to quickly recorded dreams and momentary glimpses of otherworldly strangeness, anything thought to be touched by her hand was recorded and stored here.

The Athenaeum was not quickly abandoned E28093 some priests saw visions of the structure collapsing if left unattended and remained here, training subsequent librarians and priests through five generations until Gheffen the Mad launched a private war against this shrine E28093 he had become deranged and believed that their codex recording his E2809CPrognostications of Seven BirdsE2809D had stolen his oracular gift and he and a small group of assassins moved through the Athenaeum one night, slaying all the priests and attendants and finally reclaiming the codex.

Of course, ancient and lost libraries turn up a lot in historical documents and the studies of sages. And thus this is how any adventuring group would find themselves here E28093 seeking lost documents, ancient conjectures, and their own visions of the lady Vicon.

The 1200 dpi versions of the map were drawn at a scale of 300 pixels per square and are 15,600 pixels (52 squares) wide. To use this with a VTT you would need to resize the squares to either 70 pixels (for 5E280B2 squares) or 140 pixels (for 10E280B2 squares) E28093 so resizing it to either 3,640 pixels wide or 7,280 pixels wide, respectively.
