I loved this quest, however I thought the 300 or so gold reward was a little disappointing and made me question the point of doing it. But, again, love the creativity in changing the items to something other than books and the movement of the images when you found them was really neat :)
I greatly enjoyed the change from books to animations. However as others have said I would like to be able to replay them. Maybe add a new furniture item for castles that lets you read/watch all books/paintings that you have come across
I enjoyed it. As for any negative feedback, I think the most anyone could claim, is that they were "disinterested". I can't think of any reason not to continue implementing things such as this, as there is no possible negative impact on the player, and can only serve to give a deeper experience to those who enjoy the story aspects of the game.
I have only one problem with this, i was heading to the Nemean rock, when suddenly my computer starts going weird. I decide not to enter the Nemean Rock yet, because that could be potentially problematic. So just as im quitting the game, the art infront of the Nemean Rock starts doing it thing... and i miss the whole thing! and i cant even go into the quest dialogue and find out what it said. I pride myself in being the one with the most knowledge about the spiral at my school, but to me that seemed like a crucial piece of Zafaria's history. I came up with ths idea because it has certain familiar faces in the painting I never had this problem with the books, so in that sense i guess i would prefer this to be a book quest. But another part of me likes the animations. So is there any way i could find out what the painting said?

This was a great edition to the book quest line. The animation and story telling were awesome.
I agree though that it would be nice to be able to go back and re-read some of the lore obtained from all of the books. Say maybe be able to go back to the "librarian" that gave us the quests and be able to read them there for each world? When we are questing we are often in a hurry to see what is next and don't take the time to fully absorb the story line information. I've long been interested in having a quest log that shows completed quests as well as pending quests for similar reasons.
Zafaria's animated paintings are a great spin on the usual books, and a nice little surprise. I join many others here in wishing they could be re-viewed (or re-read, for the older books) as the history & lore in those stories add so much to the game. They really bring the Spiral to life!
