A sheet of paper is a writable literature item.


A sheet of paper is used to write a single page worth of notes, using pen or pencil. Common uses are for personal reminders, or to leave information or messages in multiplayer servers.


It can also be used as a fuel for a fire and lasts for 5 mins if done so.


The loot distributions can be found in the table(s) below.
