Tome of Tomes

Two more Tome of Tomes, thanks to my Patreons!

The Science of Circles
Author: Dizariot Herculf
Race: Human
Dimensions: 24x24x6
Weight: 36 lbs.
Materials: Leather-bound, brassboard, vellum
Rarity: Unique
Fields of Study: Supernatural & unusual
Special Knowledge Categories: Dweomercraeft, planes (astral, elemental & ethereal), planes (outer)
Value: 1000 gp

This large book appears to be an extremely deep analysis of the many magical circles used for protection and summoning. It is, unfortunately, an extremely elaborate hoax. And worse than that, it’s a magical trap created by the author. None of the information regarding the creation of the circles is accurate (although much regarding the creatures of the various planes is superficially so) and if a practitioner attempts to use any of the circles, he opens himself up to extreme danger. The caster must save vs. magic or the damned soul of Dizariot Herculf takes possession of his body. The practitioner is allowed a save vs. magic every week to break the possession. Upon the 4th failed save, the caster’s soul takes the place of the Herculf’s permanently.

The Great Khan

Race: Human
Dimensions: 6x5x1
Weight: 1 lbs.
Materials: Leather-bound, woodboard, vellum
Rarity: Uncommon

This book tells the story of the 3rd Great Khan, Sorghaktangi. Although only a capable fighter, the 3rd Khan was a masterful strategist, tactician, and politician, ruling the unruliest of tribes for more than 50 years. She was born into a noble family, 4th cousin from the 2nd Great Khan Onchi, and quickly proved her tactical worth during the long Eosian campaign. When Onchi fell during the Xiong Retaliation, Sorghaktangi ably stepped into leadership, and after her successes easily secured her title of Khan.
