    Mesanna: Greetings
    EM Asiantam: about RB
    EM Asiantam: simple question
    EM Asiantam: why did you change their colors?
    Mesanna: the issue was to enhance the art ankh and the outer edgings like the newer books
    Mesanna: to make them when you dye then they are the same hues as the newer runebooks
    Mesanna: it was not to cause isses with the older books

    EM Asiantam: she is saying that she used to sort RB by colors
    EM Asiantam: like

    Mesanna: and we all understand the old colors do not match the new ones
    EM Asiantam: very hard to identofy
    EM Asiantam: identify
    Mesanna: you can dye those books
    Mesanna: they will just be a different hue than the older ones

    EM Asiantam: she is saying
    EM Asiantam: this is worse in Classic
    EM Asiantam: than EC
    EM Asiantam: can you look into it?
    EM Asiantam: so her question is
    EM Asiantam: can you revert for Classic
    EM Asiantam: not EC
