6.18.1 Journals, Manuscripts, and Parchment Scrolls

(See also: HELP EDITOR, HELP LIBRARY)

Personal journals, manuscripts, and parchment scrolls are book-like things in 
which you may record whatever you like. They may be purchased at many shops 
throughout the land, such as the Lucretian Athenaeum in New Thera.

Journals are designed for you to record your journeys in the land, keep notes 
in, compose poetry, and generally write whatever you please. A journal has 50 
pages, each of which can hold a limited (though still fairly large) amount of 
text. A journal may only be written in by the owner of it, though it may be read 
by anyone.

Manuscripts also have 50 pages and fulfill a similar function, but have this 
added feature: anybody may write in a manuscript. It is also possible for the 
leaders of organisations to claim a manuscript so that only members of that org 
may edit the manuscript. 

Scrolls have a single page and can be written upon by anyone.


Syntax:

TITLE <document> <title>
 Give your journal/manuscript/scroll a title.

CLAIM MANUSCRIPT <manuscript#> FOR <org name>
 City council members, House leaders, Oakstone hierophants, OR10s in divine 
 orders, and heads of clans can claim a manuscript as property of your 
 organisation. You must have the manuscript in your inventory to claim it. Once 
 claimed, only members of that org may edit the manuscript.

BOOKMARK <document> PAGE <#> 
 Place the journal's or manuscript's bookmark (not parchment, which has only 1 
 page anyway) on whatever page you wish. Doing so will cause the READ and WRITE 
 commands to operate on that page, if no specific page number is specified.

READ <document> PAGE <#> 
 Read page <#> in the journal, manuscript, or parchment. If you omit the PAGE 
 <#>, then it will read the page that the bookmark is on.

WRITE <document> PAGE <#> 
 Write page <#> in journal, manuscript, or parchment. If you omit the PAGE <#>, 
 then it will write the page that the bookmark is on. See HELP EDITOR for 
 details about editing and saving your document.

WRITE <document> PAGE <#> IN <language>
 Write in a document in a specific language. See HELP EDITOR for details about 
 editing and saving your document.

TRANSLATE <document> TO <language>
 Translate a document from one language to another that you know.

CONFIG JOURNALDATE ON|OFF 
 Will enable or disable the automatic insertion of the current date at the top 
 of your journal page. (Journals only)

REQUEST SEAL OF <document>
 Make the journal, manuscript, or scroll permanently unchangeable. This can only 
 be done by Mydoin, the bookseller, at the library in New Thera.

BOOKLIST
 List the various journals and books in your inventory (this is part of the 
 LISTS ability in the Vision skill).
