    In order for a building to affect the entire land, or even just an entire continent, it needs a magic presence in the physical realm, cognitive realm, and spiritual realm; hence the need for 3 cores. ;)

    I do think issues might crop up, but not with charisma. I mean (just a guess) but after a humongous amount of points someone may have to invest points in dex to prevent overbalancing from their assets, but that's the only issue that I can actually think of for charisma, and I don't think that it would come before a few hundred were in charisma but non were in dex. Does that sort of make sense?

    With the addition of a librarian to the village, I think it is a foregone conclusion that a library (core or otherwise) will be created in the village once Richter returns. But yes, finding or purchasing more books will need to be a priority soon. Unless Mama or Tamitu is bringing a small library's worth of books with them.

    My assumption was that a core library building would have specific perks regarding acquisition and preservation of books:

    Know This! At level 1, your core library allows up to 5 spell books and 1 skill book to be read each day. Any books read up to this limit will not be destroyed upon learning said skill or ability.
    At level 1, your core library only allows the preservation of Novice level books.

    Know This! A primary function of your core building is the purchase of new books. Alteration points may be spent to acquire new lore books, magical tomes, blueprints, schematics, or maps.

    Know This! New books, tomes, blueprints, schematics, and maps may occasionally be spawned randomly within the shelves of your core library using any unspent alteration points. Know This! Because of your chaotic nature as the ruler of this place of power, the likelyhood of such random occurences is incrased by +100%.

    Know This! The time needed to copy or produce manuscripts is reduced by 15% when scribed within a core library.


    Edit (Adding):

    Know This! This core building increases the likelihood of successfully learning spells from spell-books by 50%.

    Know This! For choosing to use a bookshelf made from a legendary material (Wood of the Quickening) in the construction of your core library, your core library will receive the following legendary bonus: Tomes scribed within the core library have a chance of having their writing style upgraded to Celestial Script.
    Know This! Celestial Script is a writing style specific to the Celestial Language. In addition to the normal benefits of a writing style, spell books written in Celestial Script have a chance to increase the Life or Light affinities of a reader.


    Know This! Your core building (Library) is about to be constructed adjacent to a level 3 House of Scholarship. These two buildings are synergistic. For this reason you may choose to merge the level 3 House of Scholarship into this new core building. All bonuses granted by the House of Scholarship will be applied to this core building instead. And the resultant core building will be considered both a House of Scholarship and a Library within the village interface. Future leveling of the core library will increase the House of Scholarship bonuses as well.

    Be warned this will permanently consume the House of Scholarship. While the magic core, may be recovered at any time, the House of Scholarship would be lost.

    Would you like to merge the level 3 House of Scholarship with your new core building? Yes or No?

    There is a draw back to over doing charisma. It should be obvious. Charisma makes you prettier and if you don’t look like you can defend your self....

    A combo of maxing Dex and charisma would be preferred in Richtær tavern/brothel. Will the twins end up running it?

    They are busy running Richter's menagerie. My impression is they are rather promiscious but that doesn't mean they liked being prostitutes. They left a highclass brothel where they were likely treated pretty well due to being really valuable and beautiful (though if I remember right they were raised by the brothel to be prostitutes, which is just wrong), for a village in the middle of nowhere. Could be something as simple as wanting to choose who they sleep with though, so maybe they will run his brothel.

    More likely they will keep on f**cking that powerful lord they've attached themselves to, instead of sweaty mineworkers and adventurers.

    Well we don’t know yet if the girl got knocked up or not, so that would complicate things a bit for her

    It might complicate her life a little though there is a long history of royal mistresses (not necesarily a disreputable position) and bastards. In the land you make them swear an oath not to seek the throne, and you make their siblings swear oaths not to kill them or each other as they squabble over the throne. Probably some pretty heavy debuffs for kinslaying.

    A Core Library might allow the possible access to L Space, a Library offshoot/counter part of the Labyrinth? Although probably wouldn't be a Level 1 accessible Ability.

    It could just be a repository of the knowledge that the research giving bonuses for having reference material to build off of. So the more research you do on a branch the more bonuses you get researching that branch.
