Mondering about the non skill books in game

Post by zogar85@mail.com »

So I was playing, and loving this game. And as I played, I would sometimes come across books. They were not skill books, just books with bits of lore and stories about the game world. As I played I didn't bother reading them, figuring that somewhere online, I could find a list all of them. I however can't seem to find one. I was hoping someone could point me to one. I would love to read some of the extra lore about this game world.

To my knowledge the non-skill books are not summarized anywhere on the web site.

They generally contain some interesting tidbits, but nothing that will impact the game, with one exception (a book which is the subject of a quest).

You could pull the content out of the game files pretty easily, I think. One of the files in the Book I distribution is just a renamed zip file (is is still called datapak in Book I?). You can unzip it and look at the text files inside, one of which has the books in it.
