    Not sure why the number hasn't been updated or why it isn't listed in the rares section but from what bennu said 3 dif types of books droped. The purple one he went outa his way to stress its importance over the other 2.

    Will entertain offers. Not really sure what its worth but if I see a number I like its yours :)

    "Located on ATL"

    Thanks

    Yeah, he said it was important to the plot line of the ongoing story. Also said it was a "dark" book. I'd go 15 on it.

    *edit*
    Not sure why it's not listed either. I know Bennu does not think of any of the books as rares or collectibles, maybe thats why. But the folks that follow the plot line etc still want them for display.

    Just buy 50 copies of blank book and scribe them over then use plant dye to dye them. They are not worth anything.

    Had always wondered if there was a way to dye in game books. Thanks. Guess the only deal to work out is the long tag for the book title. When I tried in game all I could get on the book title was Oblivion: Chaos and Sor .... out of "Oblivion: Chaos and Sorrow, Ice Within My Soul, By Xcio The Infernal". Bennu did place all three books at the Jhelom Crux HQ.

    Retracted for now if this is the case. The color is exactly the same as plant dyes? A hue or two off can be a big difference.

    That's all well and good, but I just tried every shade of blue and purple natural dyes and compared them to the books in Jhelom... Well, the purple is off by a few shades (too light) and none of the blues came anywhere near the same shade as the original book.
