Wow... after reading that "Minstrel-Mage" I was impressed... but this... Is better (probobly because it's for an artifact of my design. :evil  

Can I use that for the entry?

P.S. I'll make it smaller as well.

Bah... I swear, I am an inch and a half away from switching ISPs. Verizon is really getting on my nerves...

You say this is familiar? Crap... I thought this was pretty original. Well anyway, my connection got messed up yesterday and I haven't been able to get on and therefor, haven't been able to add more details. I'm gonna go and get some food, but as soon as I get back I'll add more details. Also, my hosting site was down all of yesterday so thats why the picture was gone. It's back. (for now...)

Overview:
The Book of Knowledge, Great Book, or Dead Lord's Book, is one of the most intriguing of artifacts. Created and maintained by great magic, the book can tell you anything, and everything you may want to know. However, as with most artifacts of such great power, there is a price.

Description:
The Book is quite large. Being .5 ped tall, by .35 peds wide. The hinged binding his made of beaten gold. On the cover is the image of a horned demon skull with ivory eyes.



(It looks somthing like this, but this picture cannot be used in the entry as I have no-clue who created it.)

Usage:
The Book is a scholar's dream. When it is first gazed upon, it might seem like some arcane grimoire, or perhaps even a troll's diary, but when it is opened, each and every page is completly blank. This has cuased the book to be shunned by many who are unaware of it's powers. When a question is posed to the tome; the pages become full. The answers held within the book are always correct, and can reveal things of the past, present, and even thingsof the future. But, each qeustion can lead to other qeustions, and soon, it becomes difficult, even impossible to leave the book. Those who do manage to pull themselves away (or be pulled away by others) dream obsessivly of the book, and the weaker willed may even kill themselves if they are unable to get back. It is also rumored that the book can absorb the reader... literally.

History
The History behind the Dead Lord's book is ancient and fragmented. Legends say the book was created by Alteth the Tyrant; the first Eilenachian emperor, and infamous sorcerer of northen Sarvonia. Along with the twin swords, he created this book, so he would never forget any components of his magnificent intellect. It's current whereabouts are widely debated. Some say it is still in Alteths castle in the wasteland known as Modocia. Others that it is hidden in a vault in Linhir, and still others in the private Library of the Santharian King.

Myth/Lore
As mentioned earlier, the book was created by Alteth the Tyrant (Known as Alteth the Honorable to Eilenachians) , one of the most infamous figures in the history of Northern Sarvonia. When creating the twin swords; The Gift of the Dragon and The Forsaken Blade, he also created another artifact; one to use as a storage place for his vast knowledge. But legends of this book are not limited to it's creation. Tharion Thulmock, former Archmage of Fire at Ximax, was a regular consulter of the book during the time it was in his possesion. When he went mad, leaving the city and abducting the leading apprentice of the Archmage of Life magic, it was the book, not Thulmock himself that was largely blamed. (Note: Thulmock has not been found to this day).

Masterbard Judith of Bardavos tells of the Book:

"This Book has been known to absorb would-be masters and sages - literally. It is rumoured that in the artifact's earliest days more than one mage who closeted himself with the Book never came out of his tower. After the Book was moved to the Tower of Tomes in Ximax and guarded more closely, it was actually observed in the process of siphoning out an unwary fifth-ranker's consciousness. The mage in question had spent days mesmerized by the Book of Knowledge, moving only his hand to write down some of the answers to his questions, and swallowing reflexively as assistant wizards poured liquids down his throat to keep him hydrated.

Late in the evening of the sixth day, the mage ceased all movement but eye flickers, and it was suggested that he be roused. It was found to be impossible. Not only could he not be woken, he could not be moved, nor could the attendant wizards close or shield the book to break eye contact. Just past the middle of the night, as mages kept vigil, his form was seen to shake violently, shimmer, and dissolve into a shower of silvery dust which was pulled downwards into the centre of the Book, to vanish into the surface of the pages.

It was claimed by the mages who were on vigil that the Book was thicker by a nailsbreath or so than it had been, but as no one had thought to take its dimensions prior to this horrific incident, this claim could not be verified.

Currently, all questioners are strongly admonished of the dangers, required to swear that they will ask only one question of the Book, and contact is broken off through magical shielding after one candlehour of immersion. Despite these safety precautions, there have been further deaths attributed to the Book of Knowledge. Nonetheless, there will always be seekers who believe the Book to hold their only answers..."
