Book-making table

The book-making table is a table located inside the Abbey of St. Elspeth Citharede. Players can use it to turn their god books into illuminated god books, if they have completed One Piercing Note. A Prayer level of 60 and Crafting level of 60 is required in order to use it.

An illuminated god book can only be created using a god book that has all 4 of its pages. Putting a completed god book onto the table will prompt 4 steps requiring an action to be taken in each. The actions are copy text; embellish initial capitals; add colour; and add gold leaf. Choosing the incorrect action will give you the dialogue box, "You put the [action] in the wrong place, ruining the manuscript" and will exit out of the process but will not actually ruin your completed god book. Each action will consume 200-250 prayer points. An altar upstairs can be used to replenish your prayer points.
