Fancy sword there, Adventurer. Good for you. All I have in my hand is…a Book . While at first you might think I’m at a disadvantage, as the ol’ saying goes…
The pen is mightier than the sword.
Book loot items are FULL of potential in Loot. They can potentially store crafting and potion recipes, snippets of canonical lore, magic and summoning spells, adventure journal entries and much more.
Note: When I refer to “Book” item type Loot, I’m including Chronicles, Grimoires and Tomes, as well as Books.
There are currently:
454 Book bags
443 Chronicles bags
460 Grimoire bags
462 Tome bags
Together, these Bag holders represent a powerful force in the Loot universe. In order to improve our coordination and play our role in the game of Loot, a Loot Library should exist.
The Loot Library could offer:
curation of books (staff picks). There are many writers and we should welcome branching storylines, but curation is needed in the coming tsunami of affiliated projects, derivatives and spinoffs.
showcases of things you can do with books (spells, crafting, lore, etc) and book Bag marketplace.
Book discovery, like a Google search index for the Loot book knowledge base. What recipes can I learn? What objects can I craft?
governance that represents all Book, Chronicle, Grimoire and Tome Bag holders
In order to facilitate this, a contract can be developed that allows Book item holders to claim either an NFT or ERC-20 token. Governance decisions can then be voted on using Snapshot.
There could also be a possibility you can mint a Grand Library Sponsor Plaque NFT, which should be displayed prominently on the Library interface. These Sponsors would help fund the development of the Loot Library, and should receive special treatment for their contributions.
It’s possible the wider Loot community is interested in sponsoring this, as the Library can be considered a public good that benefits all Lootologists.
About me: I’m a full-stack developer (Typescript, React), Solidity noob and am obsessed with Loot.
