    A book titled A Welcome, written by Lord Blackthorn, depicting the oppression of Lord British and the freedom he gained via Exodus.

    A book titled A Journal and another titled A Transcription, Journal written by Avery and Transcription written by Althara - Journal is talking about a strange occurrence in the city and resolving it at a Council Meeting and the Transcription is a warning about the Council Meeting.

    Just looking to get a little insight into these items and a price check if at all possible. Thank you in advance :)

    the ophidian journals used to sell for around 500k - 1m each, however that was before natural dyes. now that someone can just inscribe a book and dye it to match they have pretty much lost all value : (

    "a welcome" used to be a drop from some mob in ilsh, not sure if they still drop or not. theres lots of them tho, used to sell for around 10-50k. like the ophidian journal tho, this was before natural dyes.

    i forget about the transcription and journal, i think was a global event. maybe someone else would know. again, because they can basically be created to look the same they dont really hold any value.
