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.

       By: Michael Jotne Slayer

The nations of the Kolm surpasses all other barbarians in their wilderness of life. Thoug they do just bear the likeness of men, of a very ugly pattern, they are so little advanced in civilization that they make no use of fire, nor any kind of relish, in the preparation of their food, but feed upon the roots which they find in the fields, and the half-raw flesh of any sort of animal. I say half-raw, because they give it a kind of cooking by placing it between their own thighs and the back of their horses. They fight in no regular order of battle but by being extremely swift and sudden in their movements, they disperse, and hen rapidly come toghether in loose array. They spread havoc over the vast plains and flying over the ramparts, they pillage the camp of their enemy almost before he has become aware of their approach. They are the most terrible warriors for when in close combat with swords and flails they fight without regard to their own safety, and while their enemy is intent upon parrying the thrust of the swords, they will entangle him with their chains so that he loses all power of walking or riding.

Excerpt from "The peoples of the world" By Taklamarian court-scholar Guliman Amon.
