Tome of Tomes

So I've been working on more tomes for stocking libraries because I just simply don't have enough to do otherwise. :)

The Griffon Grimoire
Author: The Monks of Merrin
Race: Human
Dimensions: 8x10x1
Weight: 2 lbs.
Materials: Leather-bound, woodboard, parchment
Rarity: Rare
Fields of Study: Fauna
Special Knowledge Categories: Avians, mammals
Value: 500 gp; 1,000 gp with charm griffon spell

Renowned for their griffon knowledge, the Monks of Merrin’s Griffon Grimoire provides insightful guides to the combat, capture, training, and raising of griffons of all sorts; including the agile white-tipped and the fierce great golden. An entire section of the work is dedicated to the physiology of the griffon and how it relates to the physiology of the lion and eagle.

Reading and digesting the contents of this book requires a month’s time. After this time the reader may train a griffon for riding even if they never have before. In addition, in combat against a griffon, the reader is treated as if his AC was 1 better, as he is well aware of griffon combat and hunting tactics. Finally, access to this work allows a griffon trainer to reduce total training time by two weeks.

Most copies of The Griffon Grimoire include the 2nd level magic user spell charm griffon. The spell works as charm monster, but only affects griffons.
