  11. Tomes and Times

    Tomes and Times was designed to help Keepers give more consistent reading times to books in their scenarios, and in passing ended up touching on the mechanics for successfully understanding the contents.
     
    It has three main components:
    A system for working out reading times based on the book’s properties (or conversely, designing a book to fit a reading time). A tweaked system for skill changes due to reading, making incremental changes during ongoing study, rather than applying them all when the book is finished. A tweaked spell-learning mechanism, making it more predictable.

     

    Also includes a blank worksheet for your own use.
     
    Contributed by @Shimmin Beg (with thanks to @Emrys).
