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.
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.
Scribe of the Citadel eh? I can't think of anyone more deserving, and it would be for the adjutant submissions like this one.
Short but fun.
