The Tower of Knowledge

Discussion in 'Share Your EMC Creations' started by Raaynn, Aug 11, 2019.

  1. In the days of old Sosaria stood the Tower of Knowledge, a beacon of wisdom and greater learning. Visitors to this site were subject to strange forces, capable of increasing their intellectual capacity for the traditional magics of wizardry. After the death of Mondain, and the sundering of Sosaria, this tower, like many prominent landmarks, vanished into the mists of time. It was not known what became of it.
    But now the Tower has been called forth to our world, pulled from the timeless abyss of elsewhere, to once again fill its purpose as a storehouse of wisdom and history of the lands. All are welcome to come share the light of knowledge… "Turis - Scientia – Magnopere

    The Grand Archives is home to hundreds of tomes and volumes collected from all corners of the Empire, with the hope to eventually share their contents.

    Warps have been placed to carry the curious to the Starter Gear History display, a step by step walk through the changes and additions made over the years.

    … and finally warps to visit the depths of Davy Jones locker to view the heads of Staff and Members alike who have taken part in our great Empire.

    A continuing work in progress. Please consider donating your written books or heads for their addition to the Tower.

    Special thanks to q1zx for his donation of 400+ titles to the Archive
    Special thanks to sefl for his donation of 17 new titles to the Archive
    Special thanks to Knightzerone - donation of Soulbound Oak Planks to the Starter Gear Museum
  2. Updates have been made to the exhibit for Starter Gear History: 12039

    Some additional notes have been added in regards to Soulbound Oak Planks (Shoutout to Knightzerone for his donation!) as well as the addition of the Starter Horse Donkey and the various types of starter books have all been added with correct dates of insertion.

    Due to these additions as well as a few other updates, I have printed a new book on Starter Gear History (Version 2) which is available for sale at the exhibit, and soon at a bookstore near you.

  3. Nice build man! I can definitely feel the silence in the library. :)

    I love libraries in real life. I’ll have to stop by when I can.

  5. Everybody is welcome. I actually hope to find a way to share some of the books in the future for reading... maybe Lecturns will be able to share reading material when they come out. Would be great!

  6. I'm checking out the library, and it's super cool! The upper floor really kindles the imagination, and the main floor has a lot of books! Also, you managed to use glazed terracotta and make it add instead of detract from the building: amazing. :D

  7. Thanks! Glad you like it, however Ellis is the real genius with terracotta, even on walls and divides...

  10. Cool place :) since you collect retired staff heads, I guess I'll donate mine to Davy Jones XD.

    However, I'm not sure any still active member still has one of the many poems (well, more like trollish nursery rhymes:D) I used to write and give away between 2012 and 2013.

  12. This was a fantastic walk through Raaynn. I went through the entire places yesterday. Your collection of promos over the years is insane. I am not exactly sure who was asking last night about what promo was given in 2015 or 16 at thanksgiving but I wanted to run to the tower of knowledge to give him an answer but I it was in the middle of fire floor and I didn't want to leave cause that was the first time I had every participated in that particular game. It was awesome. Anyway, I'll send you my head and signed book V2 for the archives. Great build and history. I learned a lot.
