I'm attempting to try the new writing system in Dwarf fortress, I have now for about 2 years had 2 scribes and about 6 scholars. They have access to about 10 empty scrolls and 10 empty quires. They also have 8 tables and chairs in the library and 2 of the scholars and one of the scribes is dedicated (no other jobs). The dedicated scribe is a proficient (very rusty) writer and the scholars have a variety of proficiency levels in various scholarly topics.
However, thus far they have failed to write a single scroll, produce a single book or even write on a single quire. Any idea what could be wrong?
