    Hmmm. I was going to leave it to individual creativity but it's a good question.

    If it's possible, I like using the roman numerals because Port has done that with the other books in series.

    So I would say lead in with: SotA Community First Series (roman numeral): (Title)

    There will be a wipe so we will be recreating them if for some reason this doesn't work.

    I love the fact that we got nice and round 20 entries. It makes it look even more like a collectible series :D

    As for getting the text into the game - do you just need to buy a blank book and import .txt file? No need to use any printing press? Did I understand that correctly? I guess this will make it easier to make more copies of the book :)

    As far as I understand you have it correct, and the printing presses are not used yet. We shall see!

    Keep your eyes on the calendar for the Book Faire.. I will probably schedule more than 1 event. You'll be able to see the covers of all books in-game and we'll have copes of books to hand out.. also I will be collecting books to trade as well. ;)

    TRLobo:

    Duke Greagoir:

    Spoon:

    Womby:
    SotA Community First Series XX: Arachnophilia



    Submissions that didn't provide a title are marked red - you might consider adding a fitting title!
    Submissions that have a title that could use some altering are marked orange - it's mostly about getting rid of "The Story About" part to fit with the rest of the submissions nicely. You'll do as you see fit though - it's just a suggestion from me :)

    EDIT: I also suggest that we should add a "Book [x] of 20 in the SotA Community First Series" at the end of each story to make any players who didn't know about the event aware how many books they have to find to complete their collection :) How about that?

    Sorry, the title of mine is "The Guard Captain and the Conspiracy - Chapter the First". Not especially exciting, but concise.

    Oops! Looks like the titles are too long.

    Lets put the "SotA Community First Series #" as the title. That way all the books will line up great in the inventory and be identifiable as a series. Put your specific title as the first line - then the text - then RedDeers suggested ending.

    Here's what it should look like. It looks great in the inventory. The last page of the book is shown. You can see the title at the top and the note at the end fit beautifully.

    Ummm...I'm beginning to feel a little bit old and foolish, but where exactly do I go to get the blanks? I know it's been told, but I've lost the thread, the memory, or both.

    Blank Books are currently unusable. The only one that works right now is the "Blank Book for Writing".. hopefully the others will work in R20.

    BB, I know you have been DYING to get books going. I hope you are pleased. I am remarkably humbled by seeing some of my work in a game. It's not much, but it is a lot of fun.

    I'm glad you mentioned that. I completely forgot about it (senior moment).

    Tell me about the weapon's rack.

    Ah well it's a bit off topic but that goes way back when they initially started accepting asset submissions. I don't recall whether it was a requested item or I just noticed they didn't have one yet but I had decided to build a couple. They retextured it of course and next thing I know it's sitting there in-game holding a bunch of weapons. I've had a few other items showed in early screenshots which of course I was very pleased about but they're not in-game now. So far the only thing of mine to survive are the weapon rack and a single sword display.. I think you can still see the display in some blacksmith shops.

    There are 4 more racks I made that I really hope make it.. especially the big one.. I like the big one.. :) You can see everything I've submitted so far (and a few things I haven't) in my art thread. Right now they're not accepting assets so I have one or two things unfinished.
