Tongue-Binding Arts

By:

A rare and localized school of contagion magic. An offshoot of Entwining.

The Binding of Tongues is old witch magic, which evolved from that most ancient caste of practitioners known throughout history as the School of Entwiners

The witches of Karaam-Sava were, and some say still are, most known for brandishing this form of arcana.

Thousands of years ago, tongue-binding magic was used by the witches to thwart the pygmy armies of the Gwa and their vile Spell-Throats.

Centuries later, during the Ebn-Nodd Imperium (the empire of the Sons of Nodd), these same witches, or more accurately, their descendants and apt pupils, used tongue-binding magic in battling back the relentless assaults of the magicians of Uo, who came from their hilly, eastern lands, riding their malevolent winged, devil-goats, in brazen attempts to assassinate the Potentates and Imperators of Karaam-Sava, in retaliation for the years of rapine and pillage the people of Uo had suffered and endured, during Ebn-Nodds empirical expansion.

In essence, Tongue-Binding involved the silencing of spell casters via the laws of Contagion Magic

I'm looking for someone to either help me with this (just add scrolls!), or to just tell me that this is not worth doing as an entire article :)

Still trying to get my head around this one, though the 'vile Spell Throats' sounds cool.

Book of the Gods

       By: MysticMoon

This tome looks like a haphazard collection of random notes on different types of paper stitched together and bound within a wooden cover. The pages describe all of the 300,000 gods of the world, each in the language of the people who worship them. The book is stored high in the mountains, kept safe by an order of monks. Reading the entire book confers a deep understanding on the nature of the cosmos and access to incredible power. This only works, however, if it is read without translation, meaning that the reader must master each language contained within. The various monks know these languages but there is typically only one alive at a time who knows them all. This monk would be an excellent source of information and/or magic. IF the PCs learn about it; IF they can find the monastery; IF they can convince the monks to help them; AND if they can understand the convoluted riddle given as an answer.
