The doorknob is like a tiny, fast, and nearly invulnerable shield for the door. Try to kick the door, you will hurt your foot on the knob. The damn thing has the reaction time of a paranoid fruit fly. Go to Comment
1. There is no documentation of a Niyott consuming anything other than paper.
2a. They rarely share at all. A reasonable Niyott could sell their knowledge for the price of more knowledge, however.
2b. Clans are held together by heritage. A Niyott knows that their the clan is helpful protection. However, the competition over knowledge is a fierce one, and they typically try to stay away from one another's territory.
3. The niyott would read it, then probably figure out how to get rid of it, or at the very least, hide it. Of course, this depends on how valuable the information is. If it is not worth the effort, the niyott does not bother.
4. I'd say about a 50/50 chance. It is quite an even battle.
Thanks for enjoying it! It makes me feel special. :3 Go to Comment
(Fun fact: I originally thought about creating some kind of magic shredder for the Garage Sale from Hell. Then I thought about a pet imp in a cage. Don't ask why I combined the two. Just roll with it.) Go to Comment
2) Nah. Read the knowledge, feed the Ink Drinker. The book goes blank, and the knowledge is removed. The niyotts don't need to eat as much paper as they do to sustain themselves. (In fact, they only need to really eat a page a day, tops. They have just adapted so that their metabolisms are able to allow such voracious consumption.) Though, they might want to be extra careful that the ink drinkers don't devour the knowledge before they can read it, or it defeats the entire purpose. Go to Comment
Oh, I probably wouldn't have even joined without your help. So, thank you.
To those people who are wondering about a Quasi-Soul's reproductive system (you weird, weird people) I leave that up to you to create an efficient, asexual form of reproduction. (Mainly because I, myself, have no bloody clue.) Go to Comment
The heroes stop in a small town ready to restock their traveling supplies and feed for their animals. All of the villagers are starving, and there is no food to be had. If the PCs are quick witted, their noble steeds might be slaughtered for food.
