Many years from now, there will be five great mages, made immortal by their mastery of dark and arcane knowledge. Their very presence will be a threat to the Gods, so they will be turned into Books. Yes, thatÃ¢Â€Â™s right: a very sadistic god with a sense of irony will turn them into tomes of esoteric lore. On every page of the blue-leather bound codices will be indelibly etched all the paranormal spells, incantations and formulae that ever resided in the wrinkled hemispheres of their twisted minds. These books were supposed to be locked in the godÃ¢Â€Â™s library, but a mischevious servant took them and brought them back to humanity, back in time. They came into the possession of the evil wizard Alyclar Ahem Zed, living in his tower at the center of a massive ziggurat-like maze. And there he has been studying them ever since, becoming utterly skilled in the arts of necromancy and conjuration as detailed in those anti-ancient Blue Books.
Until one day, a curious apprentice found the courage to inspect the locked library of his master, discovered the books there, and being so overwhelmed by their corruptive power left silently and secretly taking one of the tomes with him. He hid on his island working spells and creating creatures until that fateful night when he found himself trapped in his attic and sentenced to a hideous death.
Contains lots of naughty spells.

Perhaps they can manifest their wills with small constructs of magical energy.
A good idea, but it's a quick sketch, rather than a detailed portrait.
Wow, old school. Could use some work, but hey, we all can use some work now and then.
I'd like to know a little more about them. I can see a scenario arc around them, where the PCs have to find the Books, one at a time, and bring them back to the High Temple of ??? to be destroyed/entombed/or otherwise gotten rid of. Of course, the current owners will be displease, but you can't make everyone happy!
Wow, another old school submission. I love how they where written back then. The sentence: 'Contains a lot of naughty spells' made me nod my head and laugh out loud.
Ramhir: If you want to know more you will probably have to write it yourself, Ephe was lost to the world of mathematics aeons ago.
someone should do:
30 naughty spells from the blue books
This entire submission left me sniggering from the premise to the magical properties.
Very old school here. My own thoughts echo Wulf's
'Lots of naughty spells?' This is an intro, not an item. Not Ready For Prime Time, dude.
