Deed Lore

Read the plaques of buildings used for the advancement of knowledge within the city of Minas Tirith.

To complete this deed perform the following objective(s)

  • Find the House of the Heavens Plaque
Also known as Bâr Menel, a tower for gazing at the stars. Soothsayers and natural philosophers congregate here, and artisans craft navigational tools for the mariners of the Falas.
  • Find the Old Archives Plaque
Also known as Gobeth Iaur, the original library of Minas Anor which delves into the pier-rock in the middle of the Sages' Neath. It is dark, dusty and little-used; its books and scrolls have no semblance of order.
  • Find the Archives of Vorondil Plaque
Also known as Gobeth Vorondil, named for the last Steward not to serve as Ruling Steward. This library was built when Minas Anor was renamed as Minas Tirith. It is brighter, more orderly place filled with works penned within the past thousand years, as well as transcripts of major texts from ages past. Sometimes called Gobeth Wain, or the New Archives, though this name has fallen out of favour for obvious reasons with the passage of centuries.
  • Find the Black House Plaque
Also known as Bâr Vorn, named for the dark stone of which it is built, as well for the ink used within. This is the chief scriptorium of Minas Tirith, where scribes write, copy, and translate texts both old and new. It is part of the Houses of Lore, and its tower houses the school's Warden.
  • Find the Houses of Lore plaque
Also known as Bair Istoth, a collection of halls and towers where the wise gather to teach, learn, argue, and think. Younger sons and daughters of the nobility are often sent here to become sages; teachers from the houses also work throughout the city, teaching rich and poor children alike to read and write, as well as numbers, history, and other lore.
