a small shop with a book-shaped sign, Room 2, Lich# 25188, go shop


I, Qaril, can create a custom journal for you.  You need only to select a cover and a sheaf of pages from the bookcase.  (Each completed volume will have fifty pages.)  I can make five types of books (book, notebook, journal, volume, and folio), so be sure to ASK me about the one you are most interested in.  Please note that only I can bind these papers into a cover.  If you buy some, make sure I fix it up for you.  If you leave Bloodriven Village before I've worked with them, they will be useless.


Some obscure details about my wares:

Be aware when writing that the spoken and written word are closely linked.

You must have a quill to write, but it need not be a quill purchased here.  Inkpots are not necessary, as the pages have a magical element to them.

You may erase what you've written by CLEANing the page.

You may TEAR the page to *permanently* remove it from the book.

PUSH, TURN, and FLIP will allow you to work with the individual pages.
