Composing a Book of Creation is the latest objective for a hero, available after their god manages to bring their first lab boss to life as of 2019.[1]

Progress

To complete the Book, champions need to collect glyphs. Each word is 4 glyphs, and the Book is 1,000 words long. Therefore, 4,000 glyphs are required for completion. Progress is displayed as a percentage of Book completion plus any known glyphs of the next word in brackets. Periods are used as placeholders to indicate a blank space for a future glyph in a given word. An example with 14 words and 3 glyphs is displayed below.

Obtaining Glyphs

Glyphs can be obtained either by sleeping in a town or by finishing a side job. Sleeping can grant anywhere from 0 to 4 glyphs. A sample text for a hero obtaining 2 glyphs from sleep is recorded below.

!Hero's Diary
08:35 AM Upon waking up I didn’t understand who or where am I, but I knew two glyphs for sure.[2]


Strategies for increasing the speed of completion therefore include...

  • ...being careful not to wake the hero.
  • ...helping the hero complete side jobs.
  • ...helping the hero reach points of interest to obtain new side jobs.

However, unlike gold bricks or gopherwood logs, gods cannot directly help their heroes with the collection process except through side jobs.

What Even Are Glyphs?

For the curious, glyphs appear to come from the Unicode block called "Box Drawing" (U+2500 to U+257F). These characters were originally used to create boxes and tables using text alone. In Unicode order, the following characters have been used as glyphs at least once.

╔ ╖ ╗ ╠ ╩

As these characters were originally designed to create graphics, one might be inclined to wonder whether this means the game will one day have visuals....
