I think as well some of these deserve expansion; at the same time, the 'roleplaying' components should be kept separate from the content, to make it easier to slap them on other books. 'Cause hey, we've got tons of other books already! (And I'm too lazy to create more.)

So these are more 'modifiers' of existing books than books themselves. Go to Comment

Quite a few books carry the symbol of Elben, a bookbinder of some repute. Not only are the bindings ornate, they usually contain some non-traditional features:

- with built-in springs and wires, the books are surprisingly hard to open and keep open. Reading such a book is a serious chore, unless you have someone to help out. The first such book was about athletic exercises and Elben repeated the joke on several occasions.
- the massive book is locked, the key very likely lost. The problem is, picking the lock can easily trigger a small mechanical explosion, that will release the binding and spread the pages all over the place. Now you have to put them together.
- this particularly decorated tome contains several cleverly hidden weapons and sharp objects. Some may be still poisoned...
- by sliding and rotating parts on the cover, you can solve the trivial puzzles that will let you access various parts of the book. A few sages and book-lovers speculate that one obscure combination will also let you see a few hidden pages. Many others claim it's nonsense. They all would like to prove their theory. Go to Comment

As I sit here stumbling through a dilated mode of difficult reading, (had my eyes checked today) I found this perfect. The parts That were not too blurry to read anyway. Which puts into mind the writing that was written under the use of drugs making it impossible to read unless you yourself took said drugs. Poetic.

I use journals in my gaming world. An IPAD actually but I write journal entries and turn them into a PDF and when the characters find them they physically have something to read. One such journal I gave the characters had corrections,and mitakes in it as the writer was penning it he would cross out words or whole lines and continue on. So they had to determine if what he wrote was important or what he had marked off was also important or false leads. Go to Comment

I think the point of this submission is to give the players reason to 'avoid' that line of conversation. "Oh look, a book! What sort of interesting fluff does it have for us?" Go to Comment

The idea behind the sub is great. Books need love. I'm not sure anyone takes them for granted in our crowd though. I think we can all agree that WE ALL LOVE BOOKS. In fact, quite a few of these exact examples have already been blurbexpanded (new word) in subs like 'Books', '30 Tomes', '30 Manuscripts', etc...

Still, I'll add a few ideas, since books are hard to resist :)

Oh and the beginning-to-end one and the Magpie guardian are eye-openers! Likey! My two cents would be to do an exact example of each example. Know what I mean? :) Like the Krullen, Magpie of the god Thfet, one. I would like to see more of those. Go to Comment

Some nice "modifiers" here as manfred says. Books however, are not underused. They are ubiquitous in role-playing! If anything, theyre over-used. :)

Some of these are very solid concepts. The drug ones seem like fun, and I cannot wait to hear the players "What do you mean the message we need is in a 10,000 piece puzzle?"

As has been noted, this is really a simple, regular, normal fruit. Not all fruit needs to be special.

Although Muro's addition is pretty cool, too! Go to Comment

Solid submission. It has plenty of detail in all the right places, it just seems so... normal. It is exactly what the sub is called. A Seaman's Fruit, and nothing else. A fun bit of fluff and sure to be included in a seafaring game, but not much else. Go to Comment
