A possible new chat topic...
Old pnp set MEL/EL to scrolls, books/tomes in one lump.
Do you use this method or vary it?
Scrolls yes i believe should have one set MEL/EL.
But books/tomes take years to make. So one can assume same MEL but
EL may vary by +1-2 more.
So maybe some generic rule....I dunno...
Time to make = Number of pages / 3 days.
3 Can vary but 3 for fancy calligraphy and artwork.
6-7 for rushed printing not fancy.
X can vary per gm.
So a 112 page book with fancy script 3/112=37.3 days.
X is in a 8 hour day.
Though many monks worked 14-18 hour days.
So 37 days isn't long.
Maybe we can come up with a generic rule..
Every 30 days MU's EL+1?
So last spells in said boo could be EL+1 while first set EL.
Just wanted to toss this as I'm fleshing out a book for a character.
