The Archive of Eminent Tomes in Solku serves as a repository of ancient knowledge, particularly tomes, scrolls, and documents found in Katapesh's tombs and ruins. The curator, Menthis Talp, rarely leaves the building.
The building is three stories high and extends at least as far underground. Menthis Talp leads an army of scholars and scribes in recording and interpreting the past of northern Garund. Talp funds the on-going research by allowing access to the tomes for a high fee and selling artifacts once they have been studied as well as copies of the writings, maps and scrolls. He is deeply suspicious with Pathfinder Society and Aspis Consortium because both organizations would gladly steal the secrets he has discovered.
