The quaint little store somehow seems larger from the outside than it does inside, perhaps because of the many bookshelves that line the walls. It resembles a quaint old cottage from outside, and quite friendly. A sign made up to look like a large old piece of parchment reads in fine calligraphy - The Dusty Scroll.
Inside, the shop smells of tea, paper, and a hint of dust. The walls are lined with shelves, each stacked high with books and the occasional potted plant. The counter is made from sturdy wood, and very occasionally creaks under the weight of stacked books. Behind him, into the dimly lit darkness of the room, there stretches tall sturdy shelves in neat rows, each filled with all manner of literature.
Pets: Creatures are not allowed inside the Dusty Scroll, as they (usually) cannot read.
Note: Each book can be used only once. Once used, it cannot be traded away or sold. Characters must be literate in Common to read the books, unless stated otherwise. Book-gained skills must be marked as such on the reader's character sheet.

Twilight-Claw: Thanks for that piece of info Ren! <3 | But would it be allowed for the flavor of the rp if the berry wasn't filling enough for the Lotine?
Jun 1, 2020 6:09:21 GMT -6
Renathan: There is no need to double up on a fish and a magical berry (doesn't change the effect of the berry at all) in a lotine breeding.
Jun 1, 2020 6:02:21 GMT -6
Twilight-Claw: Does anyone know if it is possible to combine both a magical berry and a fish in a Lotine breeding? Or is you can only choose one of them? (right now writing a Lotine breeding)

Riku: I got three pet levels and 15c out of it. <3 And all the necessary posts for my job salary form.
May 31, 2020 18:49:26 GMT -6
Riku: In mine my crossbreed used foxfire to burn it - but then it used incendiary illusion, which was extra scary because my cross is a plant pet with thick fur. It used the distraction to escape. I’m proud of it, and it’s okay that I won’t finish this month.

Renathan: *But of course, the RNG was not having that. / In Morgan's story, the Nyssa was a real thing, so I wanted to have two different situations for the variety.
May 31, 2020 18:15:27 GMT -6
Renathan: Yeah, the 'finished the story but the RNGods are being a butt' thing is a rather unfortunate situation to be in. I had already decided that in Ren's story, the elderly woman had lied about the nyssa and just wanted someone to talk to*

Riku: That makes sense. I've considered that before. -nod- I hope your non-hxr life is going smoothly.

Fiera Ferella: even AT the gardens yet. XD It sucks when you've finished writing your story and haven't gotten a success, because then its like "well... now what?" XD
May 31, 2020 15:51:47 GMT -6
Fiera Ferella: ive found that when there's a quest that might take longer like this, its a good idea to try and space out the story beats to try and roll a success before i get to the meat of the story. XD Like, by the time i was 5 posts in my character wasn't
