I sent a book to Nitram and he said the group was no longer active. I think the gms still accept book concepts.

I'm quite busy with RL stuff until the end of January. Please bare with me until that time, then I will take care of the book requests again.

I know that at least I and one of the others are still active and online a lot. Anyone feel free to send me your books via msn. I'll post them in the book writers section and I'm sure someone (if not myself) will care for them.

It's not in lines. It's in characters, and it's 200 characters (i.e. including spaces) per page. The script won't allow you to add more than 200 characters in a single box.

No no, races or creatures cannot be images on books. The rest of the objects such as food, weapons, armor, potions, even trees, etc..

No problem, you should get the book within an hour or so. Only plan on 20 pages.

It is worth considering to add avatars as items to the game for the purpose of using them in books or for GMs to play around with *tosses a dwarf at the crowd with maniacal laughter*.

Sure, but we have dozends of different swords ;-).

Can we have such thing as a book item? In our inventory? Shift+click to open it?

That would be friggun awesome.

Maybe also an ability to edit our OWN books "live"?

Also, if I write a bunch of books, can I have them exclusively be put in a particular bookshelf and nowhere else?

If a book is written, who should it be turned in to?


How does one acquire books for their own guilds library?
