Book of Unspeakable Shame

A massive, horrific tome, bound in ancient elven skin lists the crimes of Duvan’ku, the Dead One.


The Book of Unspeakable Shame is an ancient text depicting the actions of Duvan’ku. The fell cultists who worship the Dead One keep this tome hidden deep in the far north where none may learn of its foul magics.

The Party excavated the book from a tomb deep in the bowels of Nornheim. It was used in the summoning and the banishing of the Dead One during the battle for the Kingdom of Nornheim.
