    Hail to everyone on the Catskills server!
    I am Ceno from The Mage Tower's Baja chapter.
    Some of you may not know, or remember The Mage Tower, but we "were" a cross server guild, and we had a chapter on every US server.

    The reason I am posting here today is I am looking for books, no...not rune books or spellbooks. But player written books.
    As the oldest member of The Mage Tower on Baja, I have been given the title "Elder Historian" and have since made my own Library. My goal with this library is to have books written by players new/old from as many different servers as I can get. If you have any popular books please let me know so I can bring them over to the Baja server. Any books regarding The Mage Tower would also be a HUGE help. I visited Catskills a few times and had the chance to view Catskills's Mage Tower twice before it fell. I was sad to learn that even more towers had fallen and we at the Baja MT really like our history and would like to preserve anything from the Mage Tower that Catskills once had.

    Again, ANY book is accepted, so please get ahold of me and we can set a time/day and I can meet with you so you may show me these books so I may copy them for Baja. I am on Pacific Standard Time.

    There is a library owned by myself at approximately 1478x 1421y Malas that has at least 304 books in it. Lots of them aren't accessible at the moment, unfortunately. I can try to get enough time to get you copies of them all though, but it might be a while. Time isn't exactly something I have lots of at the moment.

    Not really related, but nice to see the mage tower running around somewhere.

    I was active in the LS chapter as well as helping out with the rather tragic and short lived Napa chapter. Speaking of which, be sure to visit the University of Virtue on Napa (Felucca, far west of Trinsic) to copy the books on display there. If you've done that, then you have my entire book collection.

    Thank you both for your reply.
    As far as getting copies, Just showing me the books is fine, what I do is use a snap shot tool (UOSU) of the books and then make the UO screen smaller so I may be able to see the book up on another screen and type it out EXACTLY how it was written by the player who wrote it...spelling errors and all. =P
    so just getting access to the books is enough for me.


    And Farsight, I think you and I should really get together and speak about your time with MT =)
    And I shall make sure to stop by and see your collection of books also =)

    After searching, I was not able to locate your library West of trinsic in fel.

    Gildar I did find yours and I only had time to briefly look but saw some very nice books that I would like to transfer over to Baja with your permission of course

    I only wrote about 3 of the books kept in my library. As far as I'm aware, none of the authors care about the works being public.
    Transfer away, I say.

    Ally Oop I also could not find your house...I did however find an L shaped house that was part of "Kinship Village" that had a little library! but the books were not set to "anyone" so I was not able to read them.

    I will be on tomorrow, I work 7am to 11am PST and should be home around 12

    you may reach me on ICQ at 51507530
