Learning Ancient ways

'For brief writings the Greeks and the Romans used small wax tablets. These were made of small boards with narrow raised frames at the edges. A thin coating of wax, commonly black, was laid over the sunken part of the wood. Letters were scratched with a stylus through the black wax so that the light-colored wood showed in the strokes. The tablets could be bound together'

I know that just about every problem I face with writing a fantasy type game, was not only faced by ancient people, but also solved by them. It's just nice to come across their answers every once in a while. Take this simple solution. It seems obvioius, but i didn't think about it."
