At the end of this quest you can either sell your books or give them away. Selling gives you 1500. The giving books away option allows you to increase your relationship with about 6 sims before the quest ends.

You have to use a scribe's desk, not the writing desk in the bedroom. :)

I can't seem to get the Priest to give the books out to people. How do you do that? I choose the "give books out for free", instead of making money off them.

There should be an area outside the church with a bunch of desks where u can translate the book. Hope that helps :)

The amount of money you get for selling the books at the end can vary. I only got 500 because of how "poorly translated" the text was. Lesson learned for all those who haven't completed this level yet: when you have finished translating and preaching the sermon the first time if the sermon "doesn't go well" and you are asked whether it's "good enough" or whether you'd "like to rewrite the translation" take the time to rewrite the translation. You'll make more money at the end.

I don't know if it's a game glitch or if I'm just not figuring it out, but I can't seem to get my priest to be able to talk to Acolyte Malakai. I've even tried leaving the game & reloading in case it's a glitch, but still can't interact with Malakai. Help?

I am at the point where I'm asking for donations of paper, but that function is not highlighted on any of the Sims I meet. I've been to every place in town, converted tons of folks, even saved and restarted with no luck. Thought there might be a glitch with the game. Any tricks to get folks to donate? No option to donate to the poor at the post either.
24th May 2013 12:16am
There is no particular trick to do it, you need to rise your relationship with that person until it gets highlighted.

Hi! I keep on giving the book to people, but the mission still isn't accomplished :( The "get someone a free book" button sparkles a little, then shows up again, and I keep on giving the goddamn books like there's no tomorrow. Help?
