    361: Societal Transmutation: the future impact of magic on our world by Emperor Tippy
    This book lays out a vision for the world where magic takes a more substantial role, eliminating food and hunger, providing effortless inter regional trade, creating effective immortality for the masses, and so on. It also provides a guide on how a sufficiently powerful mage could create such a world. It's a wonder it hasn't happened yet...

    362: Our Secret Goblin Overlords by Xela Nienelefin
    The author seems to believe that a cabal of goblinoids and hobgoblins secretly suppress the world's technological and magical progression. He claims this cabal knows most goblins have little talent for either magic or tecnology, and the current state benefits them more than the intelligent races, so they try to keep the world at this status quo and make sure no one finds out about them. Unlike other conspiracy thesis', such as a king being replaced by a Rakshasa or illithids taking over a church, this one seems quite insane.

    363: Extinguishing the Day Star by Count Alucard.
    It appears to be a research paper on a means to destroy the sun. Alucard claims to have talked with all manner of denizens such as illithids and drow in his research, but though he lays out several possibilities from plausible to impossible all are clearly still purely theoretical

    364: Arcanist Revolution by Kezlar von Yther
    A long and rambling script calling for the overthrow of the current world system and the instatement of an "enlightened mageocracy" to guide the masses and lead humanoids to greatness. Quite full of logical fallacies including, but not limited to, begging the question, strawmen, and circular reasoning

    365: Arcanist Devolution by Hexvorazlin, silver great wyrm
    This seems to have been written as a direct rebuttal to Arcanist Revolution, as it takes each point in that back and deconstructs the flaws and real world counter-examples to each one. It also bears an incredibly cynical take on humanoids in general, seemingly viewing them as child-like at best.

    366: The Chains of Lust: the Mazzler Edition by Java Tan, Yuroy Mazzler, and Krveero
    An infamously poorly written, cliche, groan inducing, and all around bad fiction book about the forbidden love between a half-human half-succubus and a chain devil, featuring a blank-slate female lead that is an obvious audience self-insert and a hunky devil who is not particularly fiendish, aside from the multiple long and drawn out bondage scenes. This edition "improved" with added text compiled by the legendary bard Mazzler, who was able to convince a Gelugon devil named Krveero to offer commentary on the story with him. The book alternates between the horrible original text, Mazzler's snarky comments, and Krveero's seething, unintentionally hilarious rants about how inaccurate and disgraceful everything in the book is about the lower planes.
    your number are wrong buddy.

    Huh. Well will you look at that. Okay, that's fixed now.
    @Segev: JAL's talking about the list in the first two posts in the thread, not the 608 and 609 on page 4 (which are actually 631 and 632 in my consolidated list). Combined with a few other numbering errors, that puts From Atop the Dragon's Back at 0865. Next title at 0866.

    866: Weren't There More Of You A Minute Ago? A tome etched in gold plates, which seems initially to be an index of the library, but with books misnumbered and including tomes that aren't there, and mis-titling some that aren't. Burried in it is a plate filled with frustrated scratches and a message that reads, "He's altering them here, too. How can I be sure even this record is beyond his reach?"

    867. Magic Power to the People Manifesto

    Appears much older than it is due to the inferrio parchment and ink used.
    Looks to be a screed on giving "Wizards power" to Fighters and Rogues.

    The earlier chapters have much underlining and hand written annotations in the margins of such comments as "That will never work!", "The fools", and "as if". Later pages are largely margin comment free, but are even more dog-eared, except for a large "Uh-Oh" near the end.
    Grim specter of noogie hangs like shroud over us all

    My most liked class, mechanically, is the Bard. I sing the enemy to death! (at level 21)I talk you into a suicidal fanatic! I need to cheese rules that make me sing as I fight or talk to get things done...

    I prefer t2 over anything else, because t2 lets you become anything. I think Psionics is more versatile than magic.

    878) The Cuisine of the Blue Tribes.
    A cooking book. Several of the recipes have been edited with notes, such as "in a pinch, substitute salt with tears" and "delicious with young spider eggs". When cooked according to the edits, the food tastes surprisingly well.

    879) "Kassagar Garsarra" by S. Lukyanenko. This small tome is written in blood and contains various hag rituals pertaining to medicine, such as "Easing pain in the kidneys", "Easing birthing pain without ill to the child", "Killing an unborn without ill to the mother" and "Killing an unborn along with the mother".

    883. The Wheel of Time A very dry history book detailing various clocks throughout the ages

    now for a tittle not ripped off from a great author:
    884. The Sword King Phenomenon: one Wizard's investigation into why there are so many farm boys suddenly getting cool swords while being the center of a prophecy that proclaims they are a chosen one to defeat some great evil which somehow ends up making them the king of a kingdom, seeing an alarmingly common pattern in history. The book slowly becomes convinced that this happens because of a world-spanning conspiracy to keep the technology of the world stagnant and unchanging.

    885. ReBalance Written by an unknown author, the book speaks of several divine decrees referred to as "Errata." Worse yet, this clearly delusional man speaks of huge cataclysmic events in history he calls, "Edition Changes." The Gods, he surmised, have been playing dice with the Mutiverse for ages, treating their lives as one "Terrible game after another."
