Bookstands and Scrollstands contain text that provide the Player with information and backstory on the Jade Empire and the people, events, and creatures that live within it. Some stands may give the Player configurations to use for Lord Lao's Furnace.
Upon reading the text the Player is given experience points based upon their level. If a complete set of scrolls or books are read a bonus may be rewarded to the Player.
See the texts category for an alphabetical listing of bookstands and scrollstands within the game.
