Default Re: What Would Happen...

They would produce a number of basic textbooks for the harpers to take to all the holds --- a basic History of Pern (including the Charter and the Hold/Weyr/Craft hierarchy), maybe a more detailed history for the harpers' use, Discovery of AIVAS (with diversion of the Red Star), and graduated readers for the children. Probably some interesting stories for the general population. I don't know how many holds and crafthalls there were by the end of SoP, but 1000 of each book would probably be the maximum at first. Most people wouldn't have their own copy of any book but would pass them around. This would change as the population grew.

Major Lord Holders might commission a history of their own Hold.
