Two More Tome of Tomes

Metal Stresses
Author: Unknown
Race: Fire Giant
Dimensions: 12x12x6
Weight: 125 lbs.
Materials: Red dragonskin-bound, brassboard, copper sheets
Rarity: Very rare
Fields of Study: Physical universe
Special Knowledge Categories: Architecture & engineering, chemistry
Value: 200 gp

An ancient work of fire giant origin, Metal Stresses is a long series of tables indicating the tensile, compressive, and shear strengths of a bewildering number of metallic formulations in a bewildering number of lengths, widths, and shapes. Most of the formulas are simply referred to by number, resulting in a mass of unusable information, but scholars have identified over two dozen types of metals in the work, and the numbers have held true under testing. A potential for great wealth resides within if other formulas could be identified. This copy is in Common.

Triangular Set Theory
Author: Master Theosidus
Race: Human
Dimensions: 8x8x1
Weight: 2lbs.
Materials: Leather-bound, woodboard, vellum
Rarity: Rare
Fields of Study: Physical universe
Special Knowledge Categories: Mathimatics
Value: 20 gp

A unique mathematical invention of the master mathematician Theosidus, Triangular Set Theory describes a process for solving three-variable set theory questions using triangular geometry. The work is nigh-incomprehensible (requires 18 Intelligence to understand) and has almost no practical application.
