Terrible tome of forbidden lore often contain blasphemous, terrible bookmarks.
Use the table below, to determine what bookmarks the PCs find in the book.
- This dried and cured tongue smells slightly of rot and decay. A rune of death is inscribed into the tongue.
- A slender wafer-thin sliver of bone—perhaps harvested from some unfortunate’s leg—has intricate images of torture and death carved into both sides.
- A mouldering finger complete with chipped, blackened nail.
- A thick strip of woven hair comprising contributions from a mixture of redheads and blondes.
- A single softly glowing white feather of almost unearthly beauty splattered with dried blood. Perceptive PCs may suspect this feather was plucked from some kind of celestial being—perhaps even an angel!
- A thin silver chain affixed to a tarnished iron locket. The locket holds a minute portion of fine grey dust.
