Remove Deity Books!

Post by Red Ropes » Tue Aug 20, 2019 12:01 pm

Remove the deity books from the in game library matrix. Remove them in general.

They contain a bunch of strange OOC metaknowledge and uber-history/factors from the actual sourcebooks that probably shouldn't be found in game as a defacto resource.

Most of their summaries are also already party of the OOC resource of the deity book / deity option in your rest menu.

The thing is, not everyone playing Arelith is an expert in the Forgotten Realms, and the less they have to go and read off-site for things that should be common knowledge to everyone living in the Forgotten Realms, the better.

Deity books are bein reworked though, to make them less OOC

So rejected (only in so far as they won't be outright removed)
