Scholar task suggestion: fetch books

Post by nobody » Sun Jan 10, 2021 5:53 pm

More of a suggestion for later on, but wanted to post it before I forget.

I imagine that the stacks are the most common reference books in the library, and that there are also archives for older/rarer/more delicate texts that are slightly more exclusive (restricted to higher ranks, perhaps west of the stairs on the second floor, into the mountains themselves). It'd be cool to have a task (also rank restricted) to go into the labyrinth style archives (set up that you traverse the rooms and arrive in random-ish rooms) and 'search' to see if any of the texts you've been sent to retrieve are there. I'd like it to be low riln/low XP (like shelving), but with a low chance (0.01%?) to stumble into something cool. Maybe a study spot for an academic skill possessed by the character, maybe an obscure glyph plate, maybe a lore study-able object (though that'd be a little sad since only scholars could see it), etc.

Realized instead of lore study-able objects, a hint about where to find a lore study-able object in the world would be much cooler.
