This ancient document was discovered by Baron Ogus Loresco inside familial crypts, beneath the estates of his expired rival the Countess Crubidonde.
The ancient script and diagrams describe a world with five distinct moons in the sky above, and a dying, anemic sun, the color of drying blood, pulsing weakly like a failing heart.
The manuscript focuses on the moons; naming depicting, and describing each one’s virtues and mysteries in turn, and rambling semi-coherently on the mythological aspects of the five orbs, in an unknown language, a language that would take linguist-sages months if not years to truly understand.
Amarmeela Mother-of-Moons, Amar-Kais, Amar-Vais, Amar-Oonar, Amar-Tarmeena
The riddle inside the manuscript is difficult at best to decipher, but those who are wise and those who are dogged can learn the secret within. When the Five Moons are aligned a particular way, that is to say, when Vais and Kais “cling” nearer to their mother Amarmeela who glows blood-red with motherly love, when Oonar the Gray sulks far away into the night sky, jealous of his mother’s love for his siblings, appearing as merely a dull pearl, when Tarmeena the Golden hovers dangerously close to the earth and smiles with lust and greed for the earth’s splendors, so shall the mysterious “Gate of Five Moons” open to even the uninitiated, and they may thus enter within. Of course, this is all “explained” in a convoluted, esoteric way with maddeningly obtuse text, and bizarre, non-Euclidean charts.
