Description

Blank: A flat piece of papyrus made from pressed reed fibre. It is possible to inscribe on the papyrus sheet if you know how.

Inscribed: A flat piece of papyrus made from pressed reed fibre. It appears the papyrus sheet has something written on it.

Inscribing

It is possible to write notes on paper and papyrus sheets.

  • Fill a reed pen with black ink or dye
  • Activate the reed pen
  • Right-click the sheet and click Inscribe
  • Type the desired text in the window and click Send.

The amount of letters you can inscribe is affected by:

  • QL of sheet
  • QL of reed pen
  • QL of dye or ink
  • Dye has an offset of 10 letters
  • Ink has an offset of 100 letters.

The number of letters you can inscribe is therefore equal to (the offset) + (QL of dye/ink) + (QL of papyrus sheet) + (QL of reed pen)

You are limited by the characters that you can use when inscribing. If you try to use disallowed characters (including question marks), you will receive the following message: The inscription contains some characters that are too complex for you to inscribe

Instead of a reed pen, you may also activate your hand or a corpse instead, and use it to inscribe an imprint on the sheet instead of text.

Trying to drop inscribed sheets into a bulk storage bin or crate returns the message: The inscription on the (papyrus/paper) sheet would be destroyed.

After a sheet is inscribed it gets the option to Read inscription when right-clicked, which opens a window with the inscribed text. If dye was used to inscribe the sheet, the text will appear in the same color as the dye.

Recipes can also be inscribed. To do this, right-click a recipe in your cookbook, click Options, and click Mark recipe to be written. Next, activate a reed pen containing ink or dye, right-click the sheet and click Write recipe.

Mail

You can mail the inscribed papyrus sheet for a reduced cost of 1i to any server in the same server cluster.

Sending cross server does not double the cost, but:

If <playername> does not return or accept the item before it expires (usually in two weeks), it will be lost. The inter-island mail service can not handle expired returns.

Notes

  • Failure to create a papyrus sheet will use 0.001kg of the reed fibre.
