The Lock and Key

It is known in some academic circles that at a strange and unique tome exists among the list of odd metaphysical reference material that is currently available today. It should be said that it is not a single volume, but two books, one which contains a translation of an older, apparently non existent tome and the other which is a key for deciphering the first. The translated material which is encrypted and requires the key to be of any use, seems to be a grimiore or book of shadows, of which, only one copy exists and has been destroyed or otherwise lost to the ages. Speculation that the original book was the spell book of an ancient Russian sorcerer is popular when researching the rumors that surround this interesting set of books. The person who did the translation and subsequent encrypting of the original book is unknown, however due to certain phrasing in Old East Slavic and its apparent translation into a more modern Russian dialect, some have suggested the translator to be of Russian ancestry. Who ever did this translation, obviously had a copy of the original volume but the original has never surfaced on the normal or black markets. There are some wild tales about the books origin however these claims have never been fully substantiated and at the moment there is no physical evidence that these claims are fact. The mystery surrounding the books origin and the unknown translator are trivial in comparison to the unbelievable notions that comprise the actual content of this archaic mystical tome. Read more...
