An Old Codex    Items  (Books and Scrolls)   (Non-Magical)

This Codex is sealed in either a tube or box, containing some works of great age. The scrolls and papers will be of a language of great antiquity.  These scrolls are cut up and pressed flat into a leafed book, called a codex. While the works are not magical, they might as well be, for they can change the world.

A Holy Book - 1    Items  (Books and Scrolls)   (Villanous)

It appears to be a very nice holy book of the dominant good faith, the kind that his passed down from generation to generation. The binding is leather and quite plain, but the inside is nicely scribed and occasionally illuminated. A pity that it will lead you down the Path of Darkness the moment you understand its secret.

Book of Eventful Evenings    Items  (Books and Scrolls)   (Sentient)

A slightly worn looking, and rather thin book. Its cover is red, but also holds some inset jewels, and the words “Eventful Evenings with Magic” written on the cover in gold leaf. While not a misnomer, it is interestingly deceptive.
