From Alder's Worlds

Welcome to the Bellamy Manor Archival Library and Museum

Bellamy Header.png

It is one of the foremost in the nation, nay, in the world. Its collections host an amazing depth and breadth of information, of historical artifacts, of documentation of life in thousands of different sorts.

It also is rumored to be haunted – as all good archives are – to hold secrets – again, as all must – and to hide many more rooms in its historical halls than its exterior would suggest. It’s rumored to have anything you might want, if only you know what to look for.

Darker rumors suggest that it eats new hires.

One-Story-Setting: The setting, the story, and the location are all The Bellamy.

History of the World

The Bellamy seems to be in a world very similar to the world we live in... but then again, maybe not.

Historic Events Mentioned

The Archive


"The Bellamy could be said to have a personality, but that would be a bit misleading. I’d say it’s more likely that the place has several personalities, some of them clashing." - Severn Herrley

The Building

From the front approach: a four-story building flanked by buildings from one to maybe six stories.

In the left of the main front building are the three elevators

The Bellamy Gazette

"They don't do two editions a day anymore, just one a week and that's mostly online, just about 300 copies to really dedicated subscribers, but back in the day, you could get a lot of interesting stuff from the Gazette." - Two

How many people work at the Bellamy? Miss Haas notes it as "something like 10 people, not counting Adele."

"How many field agents does the Bellamy have?"

"Oh, I have no idea. Even the number that Ancient Acquisitions has varies wildly - right now, it's four, but a month ago, it was fourteen - but the Bellamy has field agents working outside of the Acquisitions departments as well. Of course there's the Donor Relations Department - they're interested in funding, more or less - and then there's a couple field agents in PR. But since the Bellamy has more departments than even I have heard of, I couldn't bring myself to even hazard a guess." - Severn Herrley
