I got a package in the mail today from William – the book he’s been talking about. Well – in this case, ‘book’ might be too strong a word. It has covers and pages, and there are things written on the pages, so strictly speaking it is technically a book, yes, but it is old and really brittle I ‘m afraid to open it, never mind read it. It looks like someone tried to burn it, too, which is always a comfort. William said this was the book that Grandpa Joe used to break the link to Yog-Sothoth, back in the 1950s or 60s, though William doesn’t know any more than that.
The book seems to be called ‘Liber Sacramentis Extra Portam’ and it appears to be in Latin – well, I see some Latin and a bunch of symbols and some other stuff that makes no sense at all, but I can understand the Latin – well, I can Google translate some of the Latin. The title means something like ‘The book of sacraments beyond the gate’, and as soon as I saw the word ‘Gate’ I got excited. It doesn’t take much these days.
I’m still tracking down some items I need for the first spell, and then I’ll start figuring out this next part, looking through the book. Me and Google Translate and a big fat notebook… that will be thrilling, I really can’t wait.
