Next up, they can visit either the library or specimen storage. The others are roughly evenly divided about which they'd rather visit first.

Maragosa votes for the library.

The library it is, then. Azuregos leads the way back to the landing area and then down the path to the library.

The shelves are made of the same solid wood and there are just as many, though these are open-fronted. There are books, scrolls, scraps of parchment, carved stone tablets, lengths of knotted rope. The words visible are sometimes familiar characters, sometimes runes, sometimes incomprehensible scribbling.

Maragosa points at the knotted ropes. "Are these books too?"

Permalink

"Yes, a technique used by a subset of the jungle trolls, seafarers. These describe certain of the stealth magics used by their shadow hunters."

Permalink

"I guess seafarers would need a kind of book where it doesn't matter if it gets wet."

Permalink

"Some tribes write entire histories in their nets and rigging. A primitive technique, as with most troll artifice, but there is a certain charm to the creativity behind it."

Permalink

"In their nets and rigging? Don't they need those for catching fish and sailing boats?"

Permalink

"It is a form of poetry for them, that their knots can be both functional and informative."

That's pretty clever! Time to explore the library some more.
