    Axem the Curator Quests

    Axem, the curator of the museum in the Royal City in Ter Mur, offers three different repeatable quests to help him collect materials that he can study. The quests provide a range of rewards, as shown below.

    A Broken Vase (may be labeled as Putting The Pieces Together until you return and see the gump page listing your reward)
    You must collect and return to Axem ten Ancient Pottery Fragments. Your reward is five loyalty points and a Meager Museum Bag that contains six regular gems, about 3,200 gold, and one book.

    Putting The Pieces Together
    You must collect and return to Axem five Tattered Remnants of an Ancient Scroll. Your reward is 15 loyalty points and a Dusty Museum Bag that contains six regular gems, an ML gem, about 6700 gold, and one book.

    Ye Olde Gargish
    You must collect and return to Axem one Untranslanted Ancient Tome. Your reward is 50 loyalty points and a Bulging Museum Bag that contains six regular gems, two ML gems, three other imbuing ingredients (I received two luminescent fungi and a parasitic plant), about 10,000 gold, and one book.

    Percolem the Hunter Quests

    Percolem the Hunter, also found in the Royal City south of the Queen's Palace in an open-air market, also offers a number of quests that provide rewards similar to Axem's. Percolem gets his supply of rewards by raiding his wife's stash of imbuing ingredients. Therefore, his rewards may also or instead include Magical Residue (and perhaps Enchanted Essence or Relic Fragments).

    [Reserved for info about specific Percolem quests]


    Which books and cover colors have you received from Percolem and Axem? And have you received other imbuing ingredients as part of your reward?

    Cumulative List of Books and Book Cover Colors from Axem and Percolem Quests:

    Note: Will clean up the color names after we start seeing more of a pattern. So far it looks like Collector's Edition are always bright white and Limited Edition are always orange. First Edition copies may turn out to always be a dark gray.

    • Alice in Wonderland (Dark Red, Teal)
    • Baldwin's Big Book of Baking (Dark red, Blue/Teal)
    • The Book of Family (Medium green)

    • The Book of Spirituality [Limited Edition] (Orange)
    • The Book Of The Underworld (Dark green, Red)
    • The Caverns of Freitag (Fuchsia Pink)
    • Hubert's Hair Raising Adventure (Dark red, Pepto Pink, Dark Hot Pink, Slate Blue, Beige)
    • Hubert's Hair Raising Adventure [Collector's Edition] (Bright white)

    I´m not sure where exactly I got this dark red book, but I obtained: Alice in wonderland, written by Lewis Caroll... :)
    Altho the writer shortened the story massively, it´s still good ready stuff *g*

    What makes the Untranslated Ancient Tome so special it has to drop on the toughest mobs? It's for a curator quest. Is the reward that great? Seems like someone knows something since so many are dying to find it.

    What's special about it is the amount of gold, the 5 high-end imbuing ingredients, and most likely, the 50 loyalty points. That's all I can figure out. Everything you get from the quest, other than a book, is obtainable elsewhere. I guess the attraction is that it's something you can do with something you find along the way as you're killing stuff for other purposes.

    Honestly, the amount of loyalty points awarded is trivial for the time it takes to do the quests. I can make that much loyalty in under a minute killing stuff, or in about half an hour doing the quest. The books may have some value to collectors, depending on how many variations there are, but I suspect that unless there are some really rare ones available, those won't be worth much either.

    I've gotten the books off Narvey-Night Eyes, and she is fairly easy to kill. I love the white pearls coming in the bag, so much easier than fishing all day!!

    Books I've gotten:

    The Book of Prosperity
    Plant Lore
    The Book of Spirituality
    Plans for the Construction of a Hot Air Balloon (x3)

    They are all different colors!

    Are you referring to books with titles similar to those received from the Axem and Percolem quests, or the ancient tome that Axem wants?

    Someone mentioned where the Tome book was found. The TOME book is also on Narvey, I can kill her by myself with a dragon and she gives decent gold and imbuing loot.

    I want to update the list at the top of this thread. However, I'm becoming very color-confused.

    Would some of you wonderful folks who've been collecting these books mind lining up the books in some boxes with white backgrounds so we can all get an idea of the range of colors? Maybe then we can collaborate on coming up with names for the colors. I hate the thought that I'm calling something one color and someone else may be calling it something else. LOL

    Thanks!

    These books can be stained with the new dyes, so not sure how 'relevant' color will be.

    That's a good summary. Also, some titles are more rare than others.
