Tome of Tomes & Formula Folio

The blog's been a bit short on content lately, what with all the hubbub about GenCon, so here's both a tome and a formula. :)

The Art of Relent Plume
Author: Relent Plume
Race: ½ Elf
Dimensions: 16x4x1
Weight: 3 lbs.
Materials: Leather-bound, woodboard, vellum
Rarity: Very rare
Fields of Study: Demi-humankind
Special Knowledge Categories: Art & music
Value: 2,650 gp

The evocative art of Relent Plume (real name unknown) has been lost to history, but a few rare copies of this work (4 are known) have survived in which, through the use of eldritch dweomers, the art is captured upon its pages in exquisite detail. Sages speculate the art is at least several hundreds of years old, but placing the phantasmagorical illustrations firmly upon the timeline has proven impossible. Relent Plume’s name lives on as a great artist, although his art is all but destroyed. The value listed here is for a known copy and the discovery of a new copy could bring up to 50% more than the listed value.

For the ink required to scribe a clerical command scroll

1 oz. of giant squid sepia
1 oz. of holy water
1 oz. of tin, powdered
1 small beryl, powdered
A thread from the garment of a holy man

In a blessed copper vessel, mix all ingredients during a high holy day. Transfer to a white ceramic container and bring to a boil. Place in a plain glass bottle and bury in holy ground for 1 month. Makes enough ink for 2 scrolls. Any special quill is suitable.
