Also follow up question, any point in doing the book of the dead pages again in NG+ other than being able to smash some weapon racks and pick up a few possessed weapons? --- If we aren't supposed to eat animals, then why are they made of meat?
Yes, you get to keep your Stonebite stats, and can get them again on new game+. Same goes for the Relics.
As for the Pages, well, two of the Stonebites and one of the Relics is found in the final Death Tomb. Other than that, yeah, just more random loot. --- Mom and Dad don't look so hot these days, but my future's lookin' good.
