The Tome of Klorak -The Book


It was the first true “scientific” book of healing arts. Thus the clerical establisment decided it was heretical and all the copies and the author were burned.

Full Item Description
The book is a codex: 24 folios (11x17 folded in half, becoming four pages) bound together. It was one of the first true books, a codex.

96 pages, 36 illustrations, hand scribed. There were 110 copies made.

Klorak was a man ahead of his time. He was a genius: He studied magic, the body, and nature. He concluded that Gods were nothing more that big spirits that suck up the energy produced by worshipers, giving some piddling healing back in return. He produced a “great work” outlining how to do “true healing” using good proceedures and channeling magical energy. His work influence many healing groups and even the healing branches of some churches. However, it offended just about every church known to the world. Eventually, in a backlash, every known copy of the book was destroyed, burned actually, as was Klorak, the scribes who made the books, and many people who did not freely give up their books. 

Magic/Cursed Properties
While not magic per say, anyone possessing a copy will be called a heretic by various religions. And we all know what happens to heretics.

A short post, but a really good one. You sure know your books MoonHunter. We might just have to appoint you the Citadel Scribe ;) Really: Your books are very good, though this was a wee bit short in its description.

This one is not a stand alone post. It is an augment for the Plot Tome of Korak and an adjunct post for Asylum.

       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.
