  1. It’s probably worth mentioning that many (most, all?) of the in-game books come in multiple languages. It seems the language setting of the first client to open a book sets the text for everyone after for that particular book. I’ve seen the Dragonfish, Khaldun, and Ter Mur books in English and Japanese versions, don’t know if Korean, Chinese, German, etc might also exist.
