Thanks to Del and others for putting this together and this will be a working document. Pak has answered and clarified many questions on the Lost Poets drop and here is a short compilation.
How many Pages do I need to claim a Poet?
Should I keep Pages and not convert them to Poets?
Updated (Sep 29): Pages can be stacked on Poets in Act III (not before nor after) to give latent Poets names/words to write “poetry.” Poetry appears in the Description field of the finalized Poet ERC721 token and the name of the Poet appears in the Title field.
Can Pages always be converted to Poets?
Updated (Sep 29): 2 week period starting Sep 25 9 am EST and ending on Oct 9.
Why do Pages exist?
Pages first use case is as a mint pass:
What happens to the Page after it is used to claim a Poet?
Page gets burned / sent to the dead address:
What is Lost Poets?
Are there rarities to Poets?
Updated (Sep 29): There are traits which will be revealed over time. Revealed rarities: Class, Origin, Latent, Genre, Age. Speculations here.
Are Cubes related to Poets?
No. Cubes were part of The Fungible, the first major NFT drop on a global auction house.
What is ASH?
What is Burn.art?
Pak pieces (high-tier burn) can be burned to mint $ASH, steadily declining from 1000 minted $ASH on the first burn to about ~700 now. Currently, it only makes sense to burn Pak pieces. There is a low-tier burn as well but yields ~0.6 $ASH per NFT burned so it is not economic to do so (given gas/interactions with contract).

Is $ASH related to Poets?
Not that we know of, there are two ASH exclusives coming in 2021 separate from Lost Poets (discussed more below).
Airdrops: what was done and will there be more airdrops?
All Origins are airdropped. The coming airdrops will be of Origins to their latent poet owners (if Origin is not minted). There will be 2 Origins airdropped per day for 365 days after the minting of Poets (Act II concludes). If the Origin has been airdropped, they cannot be airdropped again.
Leaderboard members were airdropped Origins based on position.
Previously, $ASH holders were airdropped Page NFTs.
How will Lost Poets end?
What is Pak’s pronoun?
Can we burn a Poet for $ASH?
Not immediately but when the game ends.
Can we burn a Page?
Why is Pak channel in Siblings Discord?
This was a result of Pak dropping by the Sibs discord #pak channel during The Fungible and Burn.art. This evolved into more frequent drop-ins. The SSS NFT has no relationship with Pak/Lost Poets and the #pak channel is not an official Pak channel.
Lost Poets has an official server that Pak has created and Pak opens it up at random times for newcomers (announcements/alerts on Twitter).
What and when are the ASH Exclusive drops?
