Few people in the Old World can read or write. A skill reserved for scholars, priests, and the aristocracy, most people get by fine, using pictures and illustrations for signs to orient themselves in a city. Most people recognize numbers though. Most Reading and Writing equipment is useless for the majority of Old Worlders, who see little value in a tome other than to use it as a cutting board or coaster.[1a]
