I'd like to propose that we try and stick each book into a general category from the start. When we end up with multiple "merchants" (librarians) in the library it will be a lot easier to keep things manageable if each book is in a category.

On the other hand I don't want to suggest anything too complicated, so I've tried to just keep a few very broad categories.

Basic categories to start, please comment:

- General Lore: this includes general non-historical facts about Dysotopia, such as the monster tomes.

- History: this includes stories/records of significant events in the past of Dyso. What this really means is events and stories that players did not actually participate in; this is "pre-history" as far as the current generation of Dyso players is concerned. The Failing of the Brothers is one example.

- Events: records of significant events in Dyso that involved players. Guild wars are a good example. So are any DM event. This can go back all the way to LV as long as it really involved players.

- Profiles: This includes profiles/biographies of famous people in Dyso. Also includes profiles of the guilds and other player organizations. It could also include legendary NPCs, basically any participant in the evolving storyline that is Dysotopia.


Thoughts?

This is something I gave Bri when I designed the Library layout. I designed it so that there would be different book vendors that sold different types of book. I think Bri liked the design so we should see 2 vendors from the start (which is what was on my design). As our stock grows we can ask for more vendors to be added.

Library has been placed in Eleriina West. It is the first building on your left as you enter. I have a merchant that I will have available to place the books in then export that merchant is the easiest way to pass the info. By the way if books are made by several people please place them in the merchant. I am going to have to have JaseRules in charge of maintaining the Merchant and importing and exporting it. JaseRules any questions catch me on MSN @ brihurley@arenet.net or AIM @ HurleyBri...I can let you remote my pc and can show you how it should be done. Thanks guys really liked the books. Let's try not to devulge too much info though we want some of it to be discovered. Also I really like and appreciate what this guild is doing!!!!!
