Manual of the Order of the Palatine Eye
This book bears a rich purple cover with a brass scarab set with a single eye in its center. It appears to be one of the principal works of the Esoteric Order of hte Palatine Eye, a secretive sect with interests in all things political and arcane. The book’s covers are rimmed in polished steel and clasped with a small but intricate lock, the keyhole of which appears to be for a key with a strange, triangular shaft.
Its contents are written in a code in Varisian, but, once translated, seem strangely out of place compared to the other texts in Lorrimor’s collection. While it contains detailed descriptions of a number of ancient ceremonies, both magical and mundane, they are more concerned with purely arcane or mathematical topics and have very little sinister about them at all.
