19.10.22 Tome Of Muses

Tomes of the Muses are obtained either via giftbags or purchased with mementoes from the tinker in Petra. When first acquired, it may appear unremarkable, but possesses the potential for great powers once pages have been inserted within!

Details on the pages and the tome's full array of powers are outlined below:

A resplendent page of enchanted vellum
   - These pages can be ADDed to a tome of the Muses to unlock its potent and
     numerous effects! (This is permanent and irreversible).

A page of aged vellum
   - These aged pages can be ADDed to a tome of the Muses to unlock its potent
     and numerous effects. Unlike the resplendent pages, these aged versions
     can be obtained by completing forays and decay after fifteen real days.

A tome of the Muses
   - ADDing pages to the tome unlocks a new stage of power.
   - Each page ADDed also unlocks a new piece of information on the Muses
          - READ TOME to read this information.
          - TURN TOME to move to the next page, up to your maximum pages
   - The tome of the Muses offers the following powers:

             tome to you and making it non-decay and resetting.
