Love the titles, Joe! Any anagrams laced in the names that we should be keeping an eye out for? :D

Fantastic entries - But as a hobbyist alchemist myself I can't help but ask, isn't it pineal gland?

Thanks, pf...

In all my years gaming I never thought of adding titles to the books in the dungeon. I think I am going to work up a list of titles to use in case I need them.
