You will often find that 
even the crudest of 
materials make some of the
best materials for spell 
research. While you might 
think that hides of animals
are too crude to use, 
they actually make very 
good scrolls that can be 
used to write down spells 
to be learned by either 
yourself or another. 
There are ten different 
hides that you will find. 
Some you will be able to 
find on living 
creatures in the world, 
while others will have been
prepared for use by others,
but will need some extra 
preparation to be useful to
you. For the power
of the spell to be  
applied, raw hides
needed are stiff hides, crude 
hides, rough hides, hides, 
fine hides, supple hides, 
runic hides, fine runic 
hides, supple runic hides,
and fine supple runic
hides.

With the exception of stiff
hides, there are five ways 
that each hide can be  
prepared. Each hide will 
have a solution appropriate
for it that can be found on
select merchants around 
Norrath.

The first preparation is to
simply soak the hide in the
appropriate solution in 
your spell research kit.

The second preparation is  
to clean it with the 
appropriate solution and 
celestial solvent in your 
spell research kit.

The third method is to 
prepare it in lye to be 
sure that impurities are 
bleached clean and rinse 
it in the appropriate 
solution to be sure that 
the dangerous lye is rinsed 
from it.

The fourth preparation is 
to smooth the hide with a 
skinning knife while 
cleaning it with the 
appropriate solution and 
celestial solvent in your 
spell research kit.

The final preparation will 
not work on stiff hides as  
the combination of using 
the skinning knife and the 
lye breaks apart this low 
quality hide. Again you 
will use your skinning 
knife to smooth the hide 
while bleaching it with lye
and rinsing it with the 
appropriate solution. Be 
careful not to get any of 
this on your hands as the 
lye is rather toxic. 
You will find these hides 
useful to you until the 
point where you will start 
needing to use better 
materials.
