During my run through of the Skeleton King's crypt I found books with Loric's story (2) and several from the scribe.
The templar I met insisted that if we found any books about his order that they were his.
Further into the game, during Act II, he again mentioned books about his order and a willingness to share them.
I thought I did a good job of looking around, but I didn't find any books, did I miss them?
Are they strictly a plot device and don't actually relate to any game items?
