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,
clothing, these volumes
concentrate more on their
use on armor and insignia.

This volume explores this
flexibility and honestly
exposes the benefits and
drawbacks of this trait
specifically in respect to
recognizable symbols. It
supposes, and goes on to
convincingly prove, that
some symbols remain in the
culture despite the amount
of change that occurs over
time. These symbols are
very basic in nature and
are usually somewhat
modified over time, but



their core is definable and
consistent. The patterns
included in the volume use
these symbols to create
symbols that can be
recognized by any human and
have meaning to them all.

Among the pages of
discussion about these
symbols is a pattern. This
pattern combines the basic
symbols of Human culture
into a powerful image that
has meaning to every Human
that sees it. 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 pattern for
tailoring armor templates



based on these patterns you
will need this book, a
large bottle of ink, a roll
of 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.
