The Cymek Library is the travelling library of the Cymek garuda.


The librarian clans of the garuda strap thousands of books into trunks, carrying them as they fly across the desert as part of their regular nomadic migrations. When the clans settle on a location, they erect a tent village surrounded by garuda bands.

Contents of the library[]

The library is hundreds of years old and contains manuscripts in numerous languages from around Rohagi, including a volume said to be written in the secret language of the Handlingers.
