Tome Of Binding

Item

Image book1.jpg
Description This book is bound in a soft white leather that you hope isn't human skin. It details rituals and superstitions regarding demons from all over the world.

More interestingly, someone has gone through recently with a pen and provided detailed advice. A few of the margin notes sound a lot like things you've seen on the streets of Metroplex.
Type Offhand (Quest)
Effects +2 Etheric Defense
(Hidden: gives an extra +2 Stealth Defense with the Shadowy Presence skill.)
