  1. Hi, it's me again!

    I was having trouble deciding where this thread should go, you may move it if you want.

    This is a thread to document the existence and hopefully whereabouts of the books that have been given away by me. I'm not sure if they're of particular worth to anybody, but they are to me. :)

    Note that first of, of course there is the Piwi Certificate. One of these is given away every year. These are however not to have their ownership transferred, and the contents are to stay secret. I will share the contents if EMC comes to an end, and if I am confirmed to have left the earth in its current state, the owners are encouraged to put the contents up online as well.
    However, there are also already several books that may enter the economy! For some special occasions, I write a book and make 3 copies. I keep the original, and there will never be more copies made of the same book. :) Here is a list with date of release, thread link, original owners (including transfership I know of) and a rating from me on the book itself. ;)

    [FORUM GAME] EMC Text Adventure
    Won by Rhythmically, CarFryer and Rhythmically
    5/5

    Well, that was an interesting write! It took me more time than planned (although I had feared as much... :rolleyes:), in part because I had trouble finding some of the threads again, and in part because I had to reread the books in order to rate them. ;) It is interesting to see the ratings... I suppose I should maybe try to make every book from now on a 5/5! ;) Although for sure, they do take more time and effort to write, that way!
    Most of the threads for these occasions are also quite cool, by the way, so if you haven't got the books, you could check those out for some nice EMC history. :)

    If you know of any books transferring ownership, please let me know. I'll keep this updated as much as I can. And I hope that all of the books will remain around! I'm afraid many copies have got lost already, to a derelict residence or a player that left for good.


  2. Ancient won with a bid of 305k.

  3. That doesn't let me get the link, and it also doesn't let me copy the title without some effort. :p One plus: now everyone can appreciate you for using the Dark - Rainbow theme. But yeah, I need the link. :p
    Edit: Ah, this screenshot does show the date! Thank you.
  4. Still got mine! It will be here until the end!:D

  5. Still looking for the link to the supporter auction. ;)
  6. My copy will remain protected and displayed in my library :)

    Always hunting for additional books if anyone decides to sell.

  7. I have released an 8th book, I should add it to the list soon (I wanted to not do it right away, so I could retrospectively rate it, and in case one of the books was sold or given away early on, which wasn't unlikely as Rhy got two).
  8. Have managed to acquire several volumes for the Archives (https://empireminecraft.com/threads/the-tower-of-knowledge.80997/) , in order to save them for posterity.

    Anyone willing to sell alternate titles, please contact me via PM. :)

    current collection includes:
    Advent Calendar- acquired from Smooshed_Potato
    5 Years of EMC- from wafflecoffee
    Motm Feb 2018- from jewel_king
    EMC Coin Flip- from wafflecoffee
    Iron Supporter- from AncientTower

  9. This is awesome. :D
    Very, very cool.
    To others reading this: I donated my head for this project; the second on EMC not held by me. :)

    I updated the OP, noting the books got by Raaynn, adding the missing details for the Iron Supporter book now that I am an Iron Supporter again, and most importantly adding the book written shortly after this thread was posted!
    Maybe you should look for that one also, Raaynn. ;)

  10. I like this idea a lot. I've always wanted to write a book in Minecraft, but the horrendous text-editing system in Minecraft prevents me. I'm so glad that they improved that system in future releases~

  11. Hope you do write one and send me a copy for the archives ! :)

  12. Yes, I'm looking forward to that!
    I've written most of these books in Notepad, so I didn't have to deal with that. ;)
