A "roll and write" version of the popular game Biblios.

The life of a monastic scribe is not pleasant. Each day you spend long hours in the monastery copying books, praying, and performing tasks. Through prayer and hard work, earn the abbot’s trust and display your dedication to the pious life.

The goal of the game is to score the most piety points. The game is made up of 8 days (i.e., rounds). In the first 4 days, players will simultaneously roll their own dice (that show various book types, abbot influence and travel points) and may do so up to 3 times. After each roll, the players will have 3 options: (1) to keep the dice as shown, (2) to reroll exactly one die or (3) to roll all the dice.

Most of the dice are resource dice showing books the monks are copying, but there are also abbot influence dice (abbot influences is accrued in the first half, but spent in the second half of the game), and a travel die (allowing a player's novice to go out into towns to do good works and find more books).

In the last 4 rounds, players will use their abbot influence to bid for a priority of tasks.

This is a rare (if not unique) "roll + write" game that includes auctions and, unlike many roll + write game; is highly interactive.

After 8 days, the game ends and players calculate scores. As in the original Biblios, the relative value of books changes during the game, so players will be unsure of which books will be most valuable until the end of the game.
