Moonology Manuscript

By:

A recently re-discovered odd treatise

Moonology Manuscript

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.

Rather than celestial constellations, there are sigils and glyphs that the five moons form, each moon forming a point or specific position within the symbol.

Hmm, I can't quite put my finger on it but there's just something about this stub that makes me really like it.

You Can't Go Home Again -- Thomas Hardy

       By: rickster

An adventuress, Semma, has returned to her home village, but something has gone badly wrong: it's the furtive glances, the conversations that stop when she approaches, the childhood friends who now have no time for her. She returns to the town or city and enlists your party to help her find out what's going on.

The party must find out what is wrong: something (perhaps a Cthulhoid monster, perhaps a gang of vampires, perhaps just a bunch of bandits) is extorting obedience from the villagers by threatening their loved ones with at least death. Once the source is discovered, Semma and the party and a few brave yeomen (and women) must deal with the threat by finding its base and defeating it, and then deal with the remnant corrupted villagers who willingly served the Evil Force. These may prove to be the most difficult foe...
