I just want to throw out an idea about the next core building in "The Land". I'm pretty sure if AK writes in a library it will be called a "Great Library of (whatever)" due to the naming conventions of other core buildings and their relation to what is in our universe ie "The Great Library of Alexandria". Of course, the name won't be of the Mist, but of whatever its main properties from ingredients to create said library. I also believe core buildings like all other things in the land use a tier system. A Golem from a magic core would be considered a Tier 1 creation; due to the fact it can only affect itself and nothing else. The Forge of Heaven and Dragon's Cauldron would be considered a Tier 2 creation; due to them affecting items inside them and themselves. The Bank of Sound would be considered a Tier 3 creation; It can affect not just items and itself, but also the Land as well. Also, Tier 3 core building requires more than one magic core to create. I believe that a Great Library would be considered a Tier 3 building. Ak has a formula for Tier 2 building requirements. The Tier 2 core building formula is; Magic Core=MG Resource for Item Creation= RIC Tools of the Profession(Anvil, Alchemy Set)= TP Finish Item= FI, Number of Effects on Area= E TP determines the type of the Core Building. RIC determines the characteristics of the Core Building FI determines the effect on the surrounding area(?Maybe) E how many effects a Core Building applies to The Land. MG+RIC+TP=Core Building Tier 2 Now that formula holds true for Tier 2 buildings, but not for Tier 3 Core Buildings. Tier 3 CB affects The Land as a whole and as such needs more power, and more importantly not just resources to create, but items that relate to the CB. Furthermore, each item needs an MG to power them in the core building. Also, the quality and rarity of the TP will play a factor in the Tier 3 CB characteristics. For example, if made with a high steel stylus for the TP. All generated stylus inside the CB will be high steel. We have previous examples to go by ie Forge of Heavens the hammers look like Elementum. The formula for Tier 3 Core building will look something like this: (E*MG+E*FI)+RIC+TP=Core Building Tier 3 I believe that that Great Library will need at least 3 magic cores and no more than 4 magic cores to create a Great Library. I'm not going to go into how Richter will get 2 or more cores. Just that it could happen in the next two books. My theory is that Great Library will require; 1 Skill book, 1 Spell Book, and at least one of the following Blueprint, Template, Recipe, or Schematics. Please tell me what you people and your own theories and equations. Now me personally, I would like him to use a Spell Book Akaton's Evolution written in the Tier 2 language Runic, with a Truesilver stylus and condensed crystal ink. And before you guys throw the book at me, Bertle and Bea both can create a stylus out of different materials, they have the schematics for it. I would love to see him write the skill book Unconventional Materials for Great Library. Oh, and the resource would be a blank book made from the wood of the celestial tree. These items are my wish lists of what could be used to create the Great Library nothing more.
