Emerald Tome of the Devourer
Book of Daoloth
Many have said it had fallen from the sky as a shooting star.
This green tome’s cover and pages have a strange metallic feel. An eldritch yellow sigil marks its cover and emanates a sense of foreboding.
The text grants a massive amount of knowledge to it’s owner.
See DM for benefits to being the proper owner of the book.
Exact details on Daoloth, the Outer God can be found within. Daoloth is worshipped in alien realms, and places deep and far away from normal eyes. It seems that the followers are few and far between, but what the represent is something eyes can’t even come to terms with.
“Not shapless, but so complex that the eye could recognize no describable shape. There were hemispheres and shining metal, coupled by long sleek rods. The rods were of a flat gray color, so that you could not make out which were nearer; they merged into a flat mass from which protruded individual cylinders.”
His astrologists and priests can see the past and future, and perceive how objects extended into the last dimension. They gain the power to travel into other dimensions and to see other types of reality. Seeing Daoloth is disatrous for the waking eye and the attempts to follow the god’s outline, and that speedily causes unforgiving madness. Daoloth’s few cultists summon the god only in absolute blackness.
