    And by "book," I mean simply the little red and purple books we have today. I'd be fine with a limited palette like the statues or special dye tub, though I'd prefer a palette like the furniture dye tub...

    But in short, it'd be nice to have player-made books that weren't all purple and red. It'd help with things like player-run museums, because you could put different types of information (such as regular in-game stuff, BNN stuff, and casual information stuff) all in different color books and have it stand out for people taking a tour.

    I would really love a runebook dye tub with the furny tup options... and a furny tub with the leather tub options.

    Never quite understood why hot pink furny is ok but hot pink runebooks are not :p

    pretty please
     
  3. Those books are purple?

    I could have sworn they were blue.....

    Yeah, this! I don't care about dying tubs (It's not that hard to inscribe something to a new book) but I'd love to see new quests for new colored books. I love my red-leather bound books!

    I wholeheartedly agree with this idea!

    A shelf full of only two colors of books is ugly at best, and downright confusing if you are looking for a specific text...


    "Was it this tiny red one, or that one.. or maybe this one... or one of those six over there?" *casts Copr Por on self*

    Yeah, I'm with you on both of these too...

    And one more request... please make the book dye tub (or covers or whatever... heck, I'd buy -- or craft -- one cover at a time and use one dye per cover in the process if need be... whatever) so that anyone can use them. This shouldn't be a vet reward. :)

    Well, there is the book quest in New Haven ... just make it a quest given by every scribe in the land, each consistently offering their own distinct hue?
     
  12. This is a perfect example of why the Bod anvil deeds should be labeled with ore type.... ;)
     
  13. there are several rare EM books with different hues, and they would be severely devalued with the introduction of a book dye tub. The only way I would support this idea is if the dye tub also added a marker in the name to signify that it is dyed with a tub (like an exceptionally crafted mark, except saying "Dyed" or something).
