Tavern talk circulates of a little known pass through the Shadow Peaks and an exclusive school of bardic knowledge beyond, called Aubade.
AUBADE Beyond the Shadow Peaks, the institution of bardic knowledge known as Aubade rests amid the woodlands. The college exists singularly for students of music and history and was, until recently, highly exclusive in who had access to its grounds. Its headmistress, Threnody Vespertine, formerly of the Fortress of Light, founded the college on the precepts of music, ardor, parity, and nature. The college itself is surrounded by lush woodlands and its students and staff maintain an impressive peach orchard. As the college's attendance has grown, so has its reputation, and adventurers of all stripes are now permitted to visit and study if they wish.
