|Scroll of Wisdom|
Taking them to the University of Progress reduces the number of research points required for the future technologies. It also provides the system message:
- Future research requirements have been lowered as a result
From System channel on Oct. 10, 2021:
Greetings. This is The Stranger. I've been elsewhere lately, but I had time to peek in and see what has been going on in my absense.
I have to say, you have definitely come out on top this time. Why, with this many scrolls, you will easily be able to complete technology for months!
I think it's time to stir the pot a bit.
I offer you the first Stranger's Bargain. I have opened your minds to the true Wisdom of the Scrolls. Each may now be consumed for a Talent Point. There are no limits to the number of scrolls you may consume this way.
As with all of my Bargains, there is a price. I just may not extract it yet, or ever. But I am watching. Good luck, Egypt.
And a bit later:
The collective Houses have announced that due to the sudden increase in scroll demand, price has increased to three major awards.
They have sometimes been awarded as event prizes.
- They are not complex items and thus stack in an inventory.
- Laboratory/5 had two scrolls when we found them.
- It is not yet known if they are a part of the Temptation aspect of this tale, and thus a trap set by The Stranger, or if their use is exclusively beneficial by the reduction in necessary laboratories needed to research future technologies.
