THE LOST LIBRARY JUNGLE

Hello, all! This is Art, presenting an idea I've been noodling for months and have mentioned in chat once or twice.

SETTING


Upon leaving the carnival, the trees begin to change. They start to have shelves, bearing tiny books, and get bigger and bigger as you go, as do their contents. The world is filled with animals who care for the trees and organize their books, and save them from threats such as fire, predators, tree death, and truant borrowers. Interestingly, all sounds here drop to the level of a loud whisper.

PATRONS

MANIC MONKEYS: These little monkeys are everywhere, constantly organizing books. They're avid readers, and love stories. They will be fascinated by the carnival goers, but no more than they are by any of the...
READERS: The carnival is not the only world that touches this one. It's a crossroads for many intelligent beings, mostly human-looking, though some are more... exotic. Giant bugs, for instance. Cyborgs. Three-headed giants. But they're all here to read.
ABECEDARIAN ELEPHANTS AND DEWEY DECIMAL GIRAFFES: Elephants and Donkeys seemed too on-the-nose. Two factions of animals that disagree on how to organize the library. Their organization battles are the things of legends, or at least legends of passive-aggression.
OTHER ANIMALS: There are many animals in the library, and each serves a function. Feel free to make up your own!

DANGERS

PREDATORS: Sometimes, there are too many monkeys. Sometimes, someone has a book overdue. The solution to these problems? Giant tigers, large lions, and other very big predators. Borrow wisely.

REWARDS
FINALLY BOOKS! The carnival will be paid in books the library has more than one copy of and was going to donate to the large interdimensional book sale.

CHANGES
Borrowing books may instigate changes, either bestial or related to their contents. Again, borrow wisely. Changes up to uncommon level will be possible for those that read in excess.
