With the growth of Tetavon, the current administration, and the past generations, also realized that if the nation was to continue to grow and develop as a modern nation, the accumulation and categorizing of knowledge would become important. Therefore, by royal fiat, King Lewdorff issued an edict stating that a organization be developed and each capital of the provinces were to be a repository of information garnered and then send a copy on a regular basis to the main library in Tetavon. There it would be cataloged into categories of flora, fauna, natural, supernatural, and other and stored away for reference in the future or for researchers seeking knowledge.
Around the countryside, a wandering order of monks, who have taken a vow of simplicity, celibacy, and poverty gather information, transcribe it to parchment, and then forwarded it to the nearest capital library. There it is transcribed into books, and copied for forwarding to the Capitol Library. How well the monks hew to their vows is a subject for conjecture but King Lewdorff does frown heavily on interference with the “Gleaners”, who can be determined by robes of green and white. The Gleaners would receiver a “Gift” (or a tax, if you will) at any inn or hostelry of wine, bread and cheese and lodging for the night (if the weather if inclement.)
The Knights of the Briar Rose normally enforces the violations of the King’s edict, as is usually the case.
