Tome of Carbuncle
Legends of old have hinted that there was once a nameless library situated atop its own floating island, shielded from the eyes and minds of the humans below by clouds. Should there not be any cloud coverage, the island could manufacture its own to keep itself safe. A lone mage maintained the library, only descending his throne of knowledge to obtain magical books deemed too powerful for the general populace to have control over by the prophetic crystal. He’d add those dangerous tomes to his frightening library, then continue floating around all of Earthland in studious solitude until he was dispatched again.
One prophecy it seemed the crystal could not foresee was its own downfall. One day the library just plunged from the sky, scattering some books to the winds and destroying others as it met its demise. Ultimately it crashed into a mountainside, fading into obscurity and taking many powerful secrets with it. Time passed and slowly the surviving texts entered back into the population.
The Tome of Carbuncle is an ancient healing text brimming with healing mana. Simply tapping the book’s spine to someone will heal injuries! How could a healing tome be too dangerous for the general population, you ask? Well, when it possesses the answer to immortality, many lives are lost warring over such a powerful thing. In the past, some not-so-nice people have managed to gain control over it and wreak horrible amounts of havoc. Since most people suck and ruin good things for everyone, the poor old mage had to lock it away. Now that it’s back out in the open, what kind of person will find and use it now?
