View Full Version : Library

At start most classes get a book. ie. Guide to Close Combat.

But it is annoying having it in the menu and dead weight once you read it. But it wouldn't be fair for them to be droppable as they are starting items. So why not have a library where you can donate the books and anyone else can go in and read them?

You can drop them, but they dissapear.

The library is a great idea though.

Eh.. library would give people access to tons of free books though wouldn't it? Books aren't free lol

Not books like scrolls, books like books. Legends, tales, and just stories.

Thats a really cool idea, if you could actually read them. Plus, for kingdoms it'd be super helpful. People could read about the history and stuff! XD good idea!

I like that. Although to solve the problem of carrying them around, copy/paste from the F2 window into a text file on your computer, save it for future reference, and give the book back to the gods (drop it and watch it go bye-bye).

You must be smoking something real good when you posted as that is the correct term.

Unless you are being sarcastic and therefore supporting what I said. Than I am sorry. Not really to be nice but i'd look like a idiot otherwise.

You're making yourself out to be a fool anyway. I never said libraries didn't exist. I was just stating that books on 2k2 are NOT free.

Books, like most items on 2k2, can advance your character in stats/experience. If people could get a ton of stat boosting/experience points from reading the books, it would be stupid.

However, I think it would be neat if players could write their own stories and stuff, and then save the story to a library book for people to read.

Nice idea, noone will use it.

Why not have a weekly contest, see who can write the best story for that week and reward it and put all the best stories in the library?
