The Library

The Library of Profundus - A Note.

For the library, I have combined some mythical works of my own choosing with supposed real texts, for the hermetic section but have researched actual texts which might be appropriate for the mundane section. I have then assigned nominal levels of quality and knowledge to each, giving it a value in game terms. I hope that students of history and literature will enjoy the eclectic mix which I have brought together, here. The books in blue are those acquired through adventure seeds.
