Redemptor Demiscals Libram
The Redemptor Demiscals Libram is an ancient tome that details the gods current “plan” for Galavan in the Age of Attrition. It was written by many hands in many languages, and cannot by deciphered by a comprehend languages spell. Within it lies rites, incantations, and rituals designed to harness and control deific energy to allow those who have read the Libram to prevent another disaster like what caused the end of the last age.
Excerpt from the Redemptor Demiscals Libram, page 1, as penned, translated, set forth, and dictated by Bourn, in regards to the purpose of the libram.
“It is the intention of the Pantheon of Zetileanisoriumforan to lay forth within this libram the laws of which shall govern that most deific. We the Pantheon have agreed unanimously to bind the binders of power, to regulate the regulators of creation, to join the revelry of the stars and to walk this land no more. It is with that last facet in mind that we take it upon ourselves to set forth and aside within this libram our Dominions and the powers detailed therein, binding them to our heroes and champions from this day forward until the wheel of Attrition spins no more.”
“It is the will of the Pantheon to split these, our divine essences made flesh, amongst the sons and daughters of entropy and will. These essences shall forever hereafter be referred to as Dominions and shall be linked to a peoples and a belief, to prevent the misappropriation or accumulation of forces both protodeific and far-realm inferred. It shall be up to the mortals to deliver unto themselves categorically such that our Dominions may be known and preserved.”
Excerpt from the Redemptor Demiscals Libram, page 78, as penned, translated, set forth, and dictated by Suriea, in reference to the creation of the Dominions.
“It is the wish of the Pantheon that we must bless those who best personify our creeds with a small portion of our divine power to prevent our gifts from being used for contradictory purposes. Each of these Dominions are a part of our very nature and must needs be kept within their mortal hosts who are themselves divided to prevent that most heinous of calamities.”
Excerpt from the Redemptor Demsicals Libram, page 106, as penned, translated, set forth, and dictated by Ahz-Radamant, in reference to the creation of the Redemptor Demiscals Libram.
“Honored brothers and sisters, we must be united in our wishes for division. This world has suffered our kind’s trespass for far too long. Only a unified approach and the willful agreement to disperse our powers will allow us to serve our followers. There must be a concord amongst the gods and goddesses. This calamity must never be allowed to happen again and it is our duty and privilege to make sure that our world is safe. We must cast out the old ways.”
“Members of my House shall know not falsehoods, for it is the truth that we seek. I shall grant them understanding. I shall give them a voice. I will show them the way. Nothing will escape their minds.”
“My House will go by my name, Blackshade, so that all may know them. They will exemplify my views on the pursuit of knowledge. They shall be wise, strong, and fair in all their endeavors and exchanges, none shall survive their wrath or hide from their quest for the truth of all things in this plane or beyond. They shall not count fools amongst their members.”
Excerpt from the Redemptor Demiscals Libram, page 287, as penned, translated, set forth, and dictated by Valoren, in reference to the need for the Rite of Duality.
“The nature of our realm is a curious thing. Ahn-Ra and Sen-Ra above guide us all, a fact that I understand perhaps better than most. We each walk amongst the two kingdoms everyday of our lives, for within lies both paths. This plural essence pervades Ahn-Azzex utterly. It is with this fact in mind that I beseech the Pantheon to quantify the fundamental form required to support this duality. It is my hope that our vessels will use this information to incorporate foreign elements and make new discoveries.”
Excerpt from the Redemptor Demiscals Libram, page 289, as penned, translated, set forth, and dictated by Sintos, in reference to the need for the Rite of Duality.
“While I agree that the very nature of the realm is plural I completely disagree with the fundamental being expressed. Should the process be known the inverse will be discovered, threatening the very existence of Ahn-Azzex. The Magi made this mistake and in their hubris loosened the fabric of the weave, their experiments with Azca were far more dangerous and unpredictable than they ever realized. Not all information is for the uninitiated.”
