OriginEdit

The Book of Kells, or the Book of Iona, was written around the year 800 CE, either at the abbeys of Iona, Kells, or partially at both locations. During a Viking raid on the latter, the book’s cover was torn off and stolen, though the pages survived.

EffectsEdit

When opened, the interior radiates a holy light that restores one’s faith. However, the gazer must take care not to look for too long, lest they be consumed by it until they spontaneously combust.

NOTE ADDED BY AGENT TAYLOR: “An interesting discovery made entirely by accident is that the aforementioned “faith” is not strictly that of Judeo-Christian or related beliefs (ie, a forced conversion to Christianity), but instead applies to whatever the gazer believes in. I once glanced into the cover by accident and it reinforced my faith in the Kemetic deity Thoth. Though I will add that it seemed to disapprove of my choice in deities, which is understandable.”
