    Hello everyone!

    In order to keep track of the books we produce, Womby and I have decided to implement a book number. We call it the New Britannia Book Number, or NBBN. It functions like an ISBN on real books.

    We would like to offer the opportunity for others to use a similar coding system in order to have a tool to more easily identify books across multiple players.

    The NBBN consists of two sets of five numbers separated by a dash: 00000-00000.

    The first number is the publisher number. The second number is a book number that the publisher determines.

    Here is an example from an in-game book...

    [​IMG]

    Using the NBBN is extremely simple.

    1) You establish your publisher number (first part of NBBN) by reserving it in this thread. Womby and I have chosen 10000 to start. You can choose any available number as long as you are the first to do so in this thread.

    2) Once you have your publisher number you can set the book number (second part of NBBN) entirely on your own. No one else need be involved. It doesn't matter what we choose as the second part of the number because that will not impact anyone else.

    The beauty of this system is that it remains under the control of each individual player while providing a standardized code that can be very useful in organizing libraries and identifying books. Womby and I place a high-value on the freedom of creativity while at the same time trying to provide opportunities for mutual benefit. Again, this system is completely voluntary, will never be controlled by anyone, and does not fall under any overarching organization. Our involvement is to start this thread and record on it when publisher numbers are chosen. At this point, please limit reservation of numbers to 1 per in-game character. A joint publishing number like ours is fine too.

    We would hope that all publishers using this code would then publish the code in their book, perhaps best at the beginning, and better still on a title page.

    Will you join us in making a valuable contribution to the identification and classification of books?

    May I have a number too? 10002 will do, but I have no preferences. Publisher will be "Brittany Press".

    e.g. "10002: Brittany Press"

    Thank you.

    BTW, congrats for the opening of Vyrin & Womby’s Bookstores!

    Would like to reserve 13077 for the Northwood Press please, will start crafting some tales this weekend. Thinking of opening a library but would need some custom permissions I guess, visitors can take and read books but can't leave the lot with them would be ideal for obvious reasons... Maybe if a reader forgets to return it then it snaps back to the last position the owner placed it or in a chest or something. Don't mind putting them back, do mind losing them..
