So I have read the points app thing that is in the download section.

It doesn't make it very clear how you are meant to get your hands on the lexicon in the first place? Is there an item card or restrictions on who can use it?

I'd be super bummed if I spent loads of points on it and then couldn't get the physrep, or indeed get a look at it in the first place in order to buy the abilities.

I'm just very excited about learning the destruction word, opts seems fairly safe and legit...

Alas tends to be the problem when common abilities revolve around one prop - someone squirrels it away (often not even deliberately - they just take it then get caught up with work or whatever) and it never sees the light of day again - which is a shame as the prop looked super cool when I saw it work in progress. Would it not be better to change the abilities so you need the phys-rep to learn the thing but not to use it and leave the phys-rep at the desk? It would be a real shame to have something potentially so cool, languish and not get used because of OOC practicality and logistics.

I have no knowledge of where the prop is currently however the prop was with Miles at the Final Dawn and he claimed he intended to give to to Rich F as Theo following the Dawn.

I know Rich wanted to edit the book IC before it was allowed into the hands of the masses if at all, but again if such as happened I do not know.

I was keen myself to look at the prop prior to deciding to sink points into at Zaton seeing as it was quite tempting as an option for use on the July 4 day, *if* the prop could be accessed for the event.

Having seen the prop that's basically impossible - it's a hundreds of hand crafted and hand-written pages, codes within codes, stuff glued together and so on. It really is an awesome prop, which is just another reason its a shame that it doesn't appear to be more accessible.

Miles did say IC he was going to give it to me as Theo and he hasn't yet. Plan was to get a airtight box to store it in behind the desk to avoid it being eaten by mold.

So out of interest who has got a character that has used this?

Apart from on the adventure it was gained on! :-)

It seems like we need to accept that this isn't going to make it into main stream use!

I wrote another post on the other thread but it disappeared!!!

Waiting is all well and good, IF I understand it properly, I only have one character that would consider using it and I've not played him in ages!!

The main point is there has been a lot of stuff PUBLISHED in a lot of places for something that is then not accessible. This is causing the club a massive problem as it adds to our already bad rep of cliqueyness!!! And puts new players off.

There nothing worse, that feeling like your not allowed access to bits of the club unless your in the clique, which this projects the opinion of to new or potential club members.

If its only being accessed by a few players why are we not giving them the info instead of publishing it in the Almanac!?!?!??

From my understanding of it it was originally intended to be left behind the desk and available for anyone to use, but has since been put into someones bag and either taken or forgotten about and now only a handful of people know where it is.

It's in someone's possession and I believe for IC reasons remaining closed off? I think, I stress I think and not sure....

If the above is true, a little lame, I broke my med and spent 4 to read the spine of the book!

Potentially, put faith in the fact "the club" is trying a new idea, and there maybe be teathing issues.

Also put faith in that the refs may have anticipated this before it was set, and methods put in place to reduce the chance of it being a long term problem.....
