Tied directly into MyAlganon, this is perhaps the feature you will be most excited to explore as you enter Alganon. Not only is it a complete game repository, but a way to look-up and record your character's adventures for all others to see. You can access the Library anywhere in the world, though travel to the major cities is required to contribute your explorations to the repository.
- Learn all aspects of the game through the library interface.
- The capital cities contain a grand library. Players contribute to the library at these locations, however, view access to the library is available anywhere in the game.
- The Library records not only facts about the game, but Legends of the greatest warriors of Alganon. These Leaderboards record things like largest damage done, richest player, most library scryings, etc.
- Since the reward for contributing is based on player action (time since last scrying), the library system gives players an "unspoken quest" to go seek out a "rarely scryed" object.

Quest Online wants to empower you when adventuring in our upcoming MMO, Alganon. Developing a character and watching it make a mark upon the land others can see may be one of the most exciting aspects of the genre. To this end, our development team has focused on two of the many prominent features that you will want to take notice of when understanding what our game has to offer. The Library and Studies bring more power to the players in controlling their characters' destinies than every before.
The library is one of Alganon's core features, presenting up to date news on the achievements and status of the world to the players. It is an element that empowers them to participate actively in accumulating knowledge
To help improve our understanding of the title and gain additional incite into these features from last time we reviewed them, we enlisted the aid of developer Quest Online.
When playing an online game, you come across hundreds of NPCs, objects, and other elements that may or may not pertain to your character. Sometimes, this is fairly obvious from an article's design and function, while others are so mysterious it takes days to find out about them. Wouldn't it be nice to have a central database of information, much like custom-built ones on media sites, except in the world and updated instantly as new facts are acquired?

To this end, our developers have built the first complete in-game database system, called the library, which will also be accessible on our community portal site, MyAlganon.com.
The library is an in-game repository for all information that is Alganon. It presents news, core game statistics (most powerful crit, etc.) and keeps track of the exploration you have done by showing your very own personal library-based accomplishments and sharing all this. The goal of this feature is to maximize shared data, while allowing participation in gathering it at a minimal level.
You will be able to look up creatures, items, skills and abilities. Some of this data is static (such as info on skills and abilities), while another portion is a mixture of static and dynamic (e.g. looking up a creature). The library isn't just about information though. It's also about rewards; it give you the opportunity to gain from your work as a scryer, to obtain certain achievements, or just being badass and featured as an accomplished player. This is where you can shine and fight for the spotlight. Try to do the most damage, kill the most same level creatures in an hour... you name it!
Here are a few of the items you will be able to look-up in the library, and also from the MyAlganon website: - Alganon news - Alganon contents - Legends - Auctions - Various events - Repository statistics - Your personal library

The library interface will contain information about the most powerful families, guilds, crusades and important battles won - like a newspaper, if you will - that you can check regularly to keep up on events. From this main window, you will be able to browse stories and news, look up information on deities, or enter the repository and begin a search for creatures, places, items and quests. The legends area, for example, is a leader board where players can compete for fame and glory. If the information you seek exists, you will receive details on where and when it was gathered, and what it represents. News will also be viewable from the official Alganon website, so you keep up with the world, even on those days don't log into it.
The library is one of Alganon's core features, presenting up to date news on the achievements and status of the world to the players. It is an element that empowers them to participate actively in accumulating knowledge that is available for all to use, and most importantly, to gain credit for being the first to see a specific creature, find an item or location that nobody else has before, or to gather more detailed information than was available previously.
