"The year 3434 of the Second Age. Here follows the account of Isildur, the High King of Gondor, at the finding of the Ring of Power. "It has come to me, the One Ring. It shall be an heirloom of my Kingdom. All those who follow in my bloodline shall be bound to its fate, for I shall risk no hurt to the Ring. It is precious to me, though I buy it with a great pain. The markings upon the band begin to fade. The writing, which at first was as clear as red flame, has all but disappeared - a secret now that only fire can tell."
Gandalf in a library, and there he found what he was looking for. We need to find what we are looking for too! That is what this thread is about.
I would like to make a list of all the books that are out there in Altera. So that we have some overview of what we've got.
I'd also like to set up a matching group, where authors can be linked to the needs of readers.
Someone may need a book about something, if we have a list of all the books we have, that search is shortened.
If I have a list of characters that write and the subjects they'd like to write about, that would make it very easy to get new books into the world for people to actually use.
A book can be of great use! But beyond that, the books record bits of the very souls of the people online, or the players long gone.
Diving into the books of Altera is amazing, it's like a time-machine sometimes, and can be really immersive.
To bring that back, I'd like to make this list and see what we've got. So please if you have books, help me out and report them for this thread.
You can also join the author's club; A list of author's and the things they write about, so people can request books.
ICly, this idea and sign-up of the author's club is done by the Write&Read company.
I'll take the books from you, add them to an archive for safe-keeping, and give a copy to the reader who requested it.
