Scrolls to write in/on.

Before I suggest to the UO gods for the ability to craft a scroll that can be written in by anyone, I figured I would come to the people I feel would would receive the most enjoyment out of it. One blank scroll and a scribe could use maybe wax and one cloth and it would generate a scroll with a variety of tie colors? Green, Blue, Red? I was deep in though and remembering how we use to write "cigar box" in the title of a book and then moved to the mailboxes and realized other than books, we have no real form of writing a note to each other. There are plenty of graphics for them. Make them turntable too. or create lefties and righties.

    Interesting idea  Would kind of be like an official writ type of thing.

    This is a pretty great idea. The more stuff to write in, the better.

    Would be nice to have a scroll (short, direct, to the point) than books (with so many wasted pages).

    I'd use scrolls and red-leaf them - definitely.

    when you double click it...
    opens up to be an antique looking page
    somewhat like a mib

    make it like the star charts...
    hit the red button to seal it...

    how about name it one of the following...
    scroll of wisdom
    thank you note

    A title line (which could remain blank if desired)
    A body with maybe the same amount of text as our Character profile?
    I would stick with the red leaves for sealing though.
    Yeah, one could look like a star chart, I would want it to be rolled up though. maybe It could be double clicked to open and close when locked down? So it could be role-played with?

    (double clicks the locked down scroll)
    *opens the scorched scroll removed from the dead courier's hand*

    It could be crafted, so..

    Ingredients for a normal scroll, (wood pulp plus a red leaf)
    The writable scroll would be a single-use item - so writing upon it once would seal it.
    --- You write upon the gump, then upon closing it seals the writing
    Graphics would be a random scroll (from existing artwork),
    --- Unwritten scroll is a closed scroll
    --- Written scroll is an opened scroll 
    When clicked it opens the gump for writing/reading. (so similar code to books)

    Unwritten scrolls should be stackable
    Written scrolls would not be stackable

    Basically, a single-use "book" with scroll graphics.

    I'd suggest the gump as with the MIB (like Cinderella said), not too big and fits enough text that would garner a scrolled message (rather than a 40 page book not used and most likely trashed).

    ETA: And don't make it hued - enough with the hues, please. Or at least make it realistic and not neon. Or create a new artwork for it (the artist is right on the money with new art lately)
    Or make it dyable with the Runebook dye tub - that would add some flair to the RP ability.

    A perfect avenue for sending RP'd messages.
