Pentwell's book


This book’s origin’s are unknown, it’s owner, Pentwell, an old hermit gnome living of the coast of Felldart found it one day on the shoreline, floating in the tide.  Then, he learned that the book fortold what was to happen.

The old hermit was a sculking figure, small and ugly like most gnomes.  Pentwell was his name.  He lived on a rocky outcropping in what looked like a house made of mud and clay.  One day, when his food reserves were dwindling, Pentwell went fishing.  Instead of fish, he found a book floating in the tide, Reaching down to pick up the large black book, he noticed strange writing on it.  (i)livre de future sombre(i)  Not knowing the origine of these letters, yet he needed not fear the language barrier, the minute his fingers touched the leather cover, the letters changed to spell (i)Book of dark futur(i)  Petwell was not stupid, he knew the book was magical.  He then brought it to his home.  Sitting down to read the first page, it was blank.  All the pages were blank.  “I wish I knew where this camefrom.” declared Pentwell outloud.  Then, something began to appear on the page, it showd an old man with a long silvery beard writing a book on a table.  Pentwell turned the page quickly.  On the next page showed the old man leting the book go into the ocean.  Pentwell figured that this must be the great mage Leviadan.  The old wizard must of known who this book was to go to, he knew that pentwell should find it, for that was Leviadan’s way, to know before something came to pass.  Pentwell kept the book, learned of wars, horrors and peaces yet to come.  Soon he did not know what was present and what was future.

A bit more text and explanation will fill out this basically really good idea. This one has a great potential.

This one does have a gem inside it!

Should have posted it to Flesh it Out so we could help strengthen it some and fixed all your spelling to make it a more rounded submission. Great increase in useability though elfkin, great job.

The religion believes in reincarnation, but that you will be reborn in the past. People of today are those re-born of tomorrow, with some discarded as trash. The most pure will be eventually reborn in the mythical paradise-like past, where people lived for hundreds, or maybe even thousands of years.

This goes nicely with beliefs into foresight (you know a little about the future because you have been there), but also to many complaints of how things are going always from bad to worse.
