Just installed this and noticed a few missing ones:

Celebrated Short Story - 18396
Note: A Meeting in the Forgotten Quarter - 399
Trade Secret - 13640

The latter two are more dubious but thought I'd mention.


Thanks! I've published an update that includes the Celebrated Short Story; I'd prefer to hear what people think about the other two before I do anything about it, though. (I agree they're a bit dubious but I'm happy to go with whatever's most useful to people.)

I've finally remembered to test this and it looks really good. Thank you for doing this! smile

Personally, I am a bit conflicted about some items you put in the library. Specifically the newspaper-copies and the page of the Liber Visionis. Mostly because the newspaper-items are basically tracking-qualities and the page is ... well ... just a page. By that argument you could file each photograph and note you've got in the library. Just my two cents. If other players think those need to be included I almost certainly won't send Agitators to their door. (But for similar reasons I would vote against including Trade Secrets or the Note.)

As an idea for improvement: Would it be possible to order the short stories from worst to best? Not sure how much work that is (or if it's even possible) but I think it would look nice.

A small bit of news: FBG have kindly whitelisted this.

You're probably right. In retrospect, I think calling the new category something like 'Collected Works' and restricting it to things your character has actually created would have been the best decision. I think for now I'd prefer not to move more things back and forth between categories, and give people the chance to get used to it to see if complaints keep rolling in (in which case I'll happily make changes).

Personally, I like having a couple of pages of newspaper copy in a visible location. It helps to remind me that I own a newspaper.

I can order them arbitrarily: until now they've been ordered alphabetically. I agree that something consistent would be better. I'm going to go with the following for the time being:


  1. works created at Court;

  2. Short Stories (worst to best);

  3. scientific works and pages of notes;

  4. newspaper copy;

  5. odds and ends.



One advantage of this ordering is that it pushes all the usable, green-bordered items to the end of the category, but it's not a hill I'm willing to die on, so let me know if you have alternative suggestions.

Curses! My plan is foiled! :-)

It's Exceptional Thursday, so I'd imagine Absintheuse is busy with all the stuff that entails. I'm sure it'll get added eventually.

Just wanted to give you a hearty THANK YOU for this extension! It has decluttered my Curiosities section so, so well. Makes navigating my items immensely easier.
