Like world building, only with books!

So, we've got the core scriptures:
  • The Book of Canon
  • The Book of Retcon
  • The Book of Fanon

And a handful of self-published titles (all from the "wisdom" section):
  • The Way Things Ought to Be
  • The Secret
  • The Seven Habits of Highly Effective Rulers
  • The Titans Shrugged
  • The Principles of Peace

And according to Crush, there's three types of books that get published:
  • Biographies ("vainglorious personal accounts by rulers, telling of their own heroic deeds and cunning. Heaping piles of hyperbole, lies, and rubbish, they were.")
  • Natural philosophies ("catalog[s] of all units and ferals known to their side, with points and notes about each")
  • "Wisdom" (going from the titles above, it sounds like the Ruler equivalent of the debates in the MK)

I was thinking we could come up with titles and/or authors. :D

    Ending Games by Sawney Bean, Wisdom
      An incredibly heretical book, flying in the face of the Titanic Scriptures, it proposes several ideas for how to (in the author's words) "break" Erfworld. The last chapter details that the author plans on trying one of his lesser ideas by trying to turn croaked units into rations.

      Most sides that find this book popped in their library burn it upon discovery.

    Varieties of Bats
    A book all about, you guessed it: Bats. It contains multiple chapters each on one bat type. Aquabats, Firebats, Doombats, Ballbats, Goldbats, and so forth. Each chapter contains not only their points, but primitive statistics on the amount of experience they'll provide, rates of natural popping, influences on their natural abilities and best practices for capturing and taming them.

    Blueprints for Fabrication
    This book lists methods of fabricating buildings and equipment. This book recommends 500 turn plans and a large portion of your forces dedicated to building these structures. Most rulers ignore the tips on fabrication, and skips straight to equipment stats, building stats and city plans.
