Books

Item Inv. slots PriceGold.png Author Description
Soggy Diary
1×2 0 Unknown author An old diary ruined by moisture. It reeks with decay.
Old Remedy Book
1×2 0 Dvert the Healer An old book on herbal medicine filled with concise, yet useful notes about the herbs of Aldor.
Monastic Book
1×2 1 Abbot Vidian A hefty old book with a chewed up binding and damp, yellowed pages.
Old Ledger
1×2 0 Jebatur the Miller By some miracle, it was barely affected by the fire. The pages are covered with a mix of random notes as well as calculations of profits and losses. The latter are much more prevalent.
Venemist Book
1×2 0 Diomach This manuscript has a distinct air of antiquity. The parchment pages are covered with dense Axonian script - there are also some occasional notes and remarks, scribbled directly over the original text.
Folio on Magic
1×2 600 Magister Tidas While studying in the Academy, Magister Tidas became infamous for his refusal to choose a Circle - instead, he dedicated his life to the study of magic as a whole, not bothering with practical implications that come with the use of specialized spells.
Folio on Barcia
1×2 400 Barbador the Lame Despite being born with a bum leg, Barbador still traveled across half the known world, taking detailed notes about every country he visited.
Folio on Nistra
1×2 400 Kreon the Younger Kreon the Younger followed in his historian father's footsteps, leaving behind a vast legacy. Regrettably, his life was cut short too soon - during the Brynn siege, he was murdered by the Council soldiers for refusing to let them into his house. His last words were: "Not my manuscripts!".
Folio on Jacinth
1×2 400 Barbador the Lame Despite being born with a bum leg, Barbador still traveled across half the known world, taking detailed notes about every country he visited.
Folio on Jacinth
1×2 500 Ceremony Master Mashair Even the Ruler of Jacinth, the Most Virtuous of Takiyars, the Inextinguishable Light of Sundanaar, and so on and so forth, considers the ancient custom of addressing him by his full title a tiresome waste of time. Well, that's tradition for you...
Folio on Veerlings
1×2 200 Bernold the Distrustful Unlike many low-effort authors, who simply write down any nonsense they hear without second-guessing it, Bernold the Distrustful had always been a skeptic. Everything mentioned in his work was either observed by him personally or, in the very least, meticulously verified. This probably explains why even decades later his books are still relevant.
Folio on Bronza
1×2 400 Iremis of Brynn The Bronze Isles and their customs have always been of interest to Aldorians. Written by a Brynn scholar, this book details the history of that truly fascinating country.
Folio on Hieron
1×2 600 Farukh an-Dunnah One of the most well-known elven books on Aldor and its neighbors. Being a god-fearing and pious person, An-Dunnah was especially thorough while describing Western faiths and their differences from Takiya, the religion of the Jacinth Kingdoms.
Folio on Beauty
1×2 200 Sabrina the Cunning Magic is a heavy burden - by the age of fifty, those who practice it on a regular basis often look old and withered beyond their years. This book is chock-full of helpful advice for anyone who wants to avoid a similar fate and prolong their youth, if only for a little while.
Folio on Skadia
1×2 400 Farukh an-Dunnah An-Dunnah writes about Skadians with a mixture of respect and genuine curiosity: the customs of that harsh, distant land are nothing like his home country of Ahjat...
Folio on Eidolons
1×2 600 theognostic Zenarch of Killios The Keys of the Tetractys is one of the most famous and important texts of Hieronite theology, explaining the main tenets of that religion in fairly simple terms.
Folio on Gems
1×2 600 Niran of Maen The beauty, scarcity, and magical properties of gemstones capture the hearts of many: the first attempts to categorize and describe them in all their diversity date all the way back to antiquity.
