if 75 is a scrap, 5 would be...a jot? (it has been observed that the denominations of the scrolls bear a curious resemblance to the denominations of prestige purchase amounts available. it seems likely that is intentional, ergo likely that smaller denominations will not be offered.)

To the Team:

This is an amazing amount of output, and represents an unparalleled amount of input. Many players have believed, and believe still. 

Thank you very much. 

Thumbs Up

Long live the Royal House of Merlinus!

There are a few suggestions I'd like to make about this:  
1:  Instead of only allowing the making of prestige scrolls in lump sums of prestige, allowing the making in increments, like so:  
1-75 prestige:  prestige scrap
76-200 prestige:  prestige parchment
201-500 prestige:  prestige page
501-850 prestige:  prestige scroll
and so on, with the other costs being what they currently are.  
2:  to avoid exploitation with the increments, require at least 25 prestige to be left over after the creation of a prestige scroll.

The prestige scrolls need to be for much smaller units:-

1
2
5
10
20
50
100
200
500
1000 (!)
2000 (!)
5000 (!)

This system already works for the whole of the United Kingdom.

And whilst we are at it, mana needs to be traded in the same way as research.

Finally, I notice that some people are trying to hike the prices of the recipe ingredients on Centrum.
This will not work as all the ingredients are far too common and if some ingredients are not availbale, people will just make more of the smaller scrolls.

Also can't see anything on how long it takes to make each scroll?  Did I miss it?

i beseech the devs to add the experience value of the unitcasualties to the combatevent report. this would allow player-organised hunting tournaments to be more fairly scored according to a rough difficulty value rather than merely units killed.

I personally wouldn't gift someone a lot of prestige.. I would maybe 12 to 15.. so, I'll prolly be selling people who DO use this, all the supplies for the prestige rolls.. Interesting tho DEVS, waiting on the next new...

It takes as long as it takes you to hit make after entering an amount.

This is a great gift for newbs, or tourny players. I worry about this becoming mandatory for surrenders, though.

This is great! I love that you've shared so much. As Rill said, it lets us know what we otherwise are unaware of. 

So, is magic next? Big smile
