2. A Tome Contest!

Describe a tome for the new public RoK library being opened in honour of RoK's 6th birthday - the winning tome will be enshrined in a glass case for all to see with a small note naming the donor - must be a believable, possible tome about an aspect of the lands. You should include your title and a VERY brief synopsis of what we might find within it. Do not forget the physical appearance - type, binding, paper etc. The library is a place of knowledge and learning - make it appropriate. PLEASE NOTE: RoK reserve the right to alter your description in order to make it fit the room as they see fit. We will of course show you the alterations and give our reasons.

Please post your contributions below!

Title: Quest for the Seals

Author: Topaz the Poet

Binding, paper, type: Folio, light brown leather binding. On its front is a picture traced in gold: a door with five seals closing it from top to bottom. The paper is thick and cream-colored, and the text is in clear black Garamond type; its wide margins leave room for an occasional drawing in red and black.

Description: This book contains the five parts of the chronicle of the Quest for the Seals, during which Valorn's adventurers searched for and recovered the five Seals to a mysterious door in the castle of Caer Laleldan.

A large tome bound in cured bos-hide, dyed a rich red colour. The front is embossed in gold with the crest of the guild. Below, in what appears to be a flowing, bold hand but is actually embossed gold, is the legend

Remnants of Kimald

Roll of Honour


The pages are of golden-hued parchment. Each page, handwritten in black, contains the details of a past or present member of the guild. Name, profession, sponsor, dates of guild membership, names of sponsees, achievements in the lands - all are meticulously recorded within this history.

Appendices at the back of the Roll of Honour include a timeline of the history of the guild, references to notable historical events within the lands in which the guild or individual members were involved, and copies of sections from the lineage scrolls concerning guild members.

Title: 101 Ale recipes

This dog earred, heavily used, and ale stained book has seen better days. It is still, by a not small miracle, readable.

Simply put together. Holes have been pierced through the heavy rough cut parchments where string has been threaded through and knotted.
The title on the front parchment has been handwritten in a sketch like way titled Sketches of Travel by Remnants of Kimald.

This is a collection of all the original sketches of the Remnants of Kimald maps. Sketched on heavy rough cut parchments ~ the sketches have all the marks of mistakes and little notes dotted around the parchments. Each parchment bears the name of the place visited and also little sketches of the creatures and Flora and Forna seen in the area. Different plant dyes have been used to add interest, colour and texture.
