Book Text:

Humans have always been
resourceful, known for
their adaptability and
cleverness when a situation
is not favorable to their
desires. Many of the other
races of Norrath consider
this a flaw, saying that
the flexibility of Humans
also causes in them an
inability to remain stable
and to build upon their
past. Humans see this as
their greatest gift. They
point to their established
cities, long-held
traditions and powerful
role in history as evidence
of their gift. In these
volumes it is proposed that
one of the strongest bonds
between generations of
Humans, one of the things
that keeps them stable and



strong while still allowing
them freedom to express
themselves, are their
symbols. Shown in Human
art, architecture and
clothing, these volumes
concentrate more on their
use on armor and insignia.

This volume focuses on the
oldest insignia of the
royal houses of Humans. An
astounding number of
ancient military insignia,
crests and banners are
shown on these pages.
There is surprisingly
little text on any of the
pages, often just a label
telling where these symbols
were found. The lack of
text and the order of the
symbols forces the reader
into a state of mind that



makes the entire text
perfectly clear. That is,
unless the reader is not
Human. Non-Human readers
are generally confounded by
the images, though some
claim to find them
"interesting".

Among the pages of
discussion about these
symbols is a pattern. This
pattern combines ancient
symbols with several of the
symbols discussed in
earlier volumes to produce
the most potent symbol of
Human culture you have ever
seen. You know that you
will be able to reproduce
this pattern many times
before the book becomes
worn and you must replace
it.




To create a pattern for
tailoring armor templates
based on these patterns you
will need this book, a
large bottle of ink, a roll
of superb vellum, a quill
and a compacted backpack to
hold the patterns you will
make. You'll also need a
book binding to do the
work.
