So, About these Tomes

Post by Nightshade on Thu Apr 05, 2012 12:52 am

Where did everyone pick theirs up at? I mean, if they really were spread by a bunch of bored mages, you'd think that they'd be organized about it. So where did you pick yours up at, and why did you pick it up in the first place?

I picked mine up in the Morthal Inn, and figured I'd keep it since I wanted a book to write down some recipes.

I found mine in this dwarven mine, over near Markarth. I just thought this thing was a blank book some poor sod felt would write down his thoughts before he got cut down.

I found it in a bar! Bannered mare. I thought I could just write in it.

Strange. I wonder if that argonian and his friend also got them...

I found mine in a dilapidated fort in the wilderness.

Strangely, it was in pristine condition for the most part. I'm still not sure what I'm seeing.

I found it in the home of some rich human bastard. Cover looked ornate, guilded with gold and silver, so I figured it would fetch a good amount of coin. Took it with me, got caught, went to jail, served my time, left jail, and the book randomly appears in my bag. I look in it, first page has my prison record. Second page, you lot appear.

Have any of you tried getting rid of yours yet?

Well do so and tell me if it comes back. I want to know if I have to throw this into the bay to get rid of it.

Wait, so you can't get rid of these things?

Hm...Maybe someone try burning their tome, see what that does. If it's destroyed, I'm sure you'll probably find another lying about somewhere.

Right...

So it came back, just in a rather round about manner. Guess throwing it into the bay might not work.

Well, nothing for it, let's see how well it burns.

You people are fools.

By sheer good fortune, you have all encountered a means of communication that is as fast as magic and less exhausting, and your immediate thought is how to be rid of it? Why would you want to be rid of it? This is clearly a product of some great artistry. It is invaluable, even if it is seemingly commonplace enough for all of you to be furnished with a copy.

I cannot comprehend the providence of these tomes, but I - for one - shall not be dispensing of my copy so lightly.

Hm...You could always try disenchanting, remove the magic so it's a basic blank tome.

Granted, I'm not going to, since Kestrel also uses it. Wouldn't be fair to just get rid of it, I suppose.

...Although I am curious. Do you think these pages will eventually run out?

I doubt it. Chances are that they replenish themselves using older pages, but that's just me.

You'd have to be bloody bored to make this many and scatter them all over the place. And what would be the fucking point? "Spy" on the messages we send in them? Because they're all defintitely going to fall into the hands of really important people who will just take leave of all their senses and reveal sensitive information in them.

Definitely.

Why would I want to be rid of it?

One: I can't sell it, cause when I tried, I walked to far away and it came back to me, meaning I had to go back and give the fence back her money. Giving people things isn't what I do. If I can't sell it and it is not a) food, b) my dagger, c) my lockpicks, d) warm clothing, e) beneficial potions, it's useless to me.

Two: Yes, it is a fast and easy method of communication. But, here's the thing: WHO THE HELL ARE YOU COMMUNICATING TO? A bunch of random strangers you've never met? Yeah, that's real bloody usefull.

Three: it may be a bloody daedra artifact. Bloody. Daedra. Artifact. I don't know about you, but I sure don't want to have to cart around such a thing.

If I had easy access to an enchanting table, I would try, but I don't so that's out of the question for now. As for the page thing, they just don't ever seem to end. I was cutting small groups of pages out (you can damage the book as long as it won't lead to it being destroyed, or something like that at least), and they just never seemed to end.

Hm...Interesting... I wonder if pages torn would still carry the enchantment? Maybe if you tear out enough pages of these books, you could make a blank one all by yourself.

Then again, that would have to be a lot of pages. Nevermind then.
