Funiculos pupa est scriptor

The most prized possession of the covenant’s library, mages petition from across the globe for a season with access to this book and several scribes beg to copy it. This is one of the most impressive books of rego ever created, supposedly penned by Tremere himself, though this is just rumour. To remove this book from the covenant would bring the wrath of the entire covenant upon the thief.

Gaia’s Secrets

This somewhat arrogantly named book is a staple primer on the art of creo.

Discerning Patterns

This rather worn book is a copy of a copy, but still manages to contain useful insights on intelligo. It is the additional notes in the pages rather than the core text that makes it so useful and each magus is encouraged to add their own insights to it when they have them.

Art: Intelligo

Chrysalis

This is a book on change and is filled with diagrams of insects as they change from caterpillar into butterfly. It is a valuable study on the art of transformation.

The Art of Unmaking

This book was written by Alganor of Flambeau and it gleefully describes the art of Perdo.

Taming the Beast

A comprehensive treatise on the art of Animal, popular amongst mages with a keen interest in controlling animals, although it is equally good for any aspect of Animal.

Art: Animal

Quality: 14

Stormclouds over Albion

A specific tome, able to cover a lot of information quickly, but without the useful insights for those who seek a deep knowledge of aura.

The Sea Witches of Askar

More of a historical fantasy than a book of hermetic magic, this is the ramblings of a Criamon madman obsessed with the idea of mermaid witches off the Askarian sea.

Art: Aquam
Level: 7
Quality: 13

Ruling the Dead

Pitched as a book of necromancy, this is a surprisingly knowledgeable on all aspects of Corpus.

The Witches Garden

Penned by Tatiana herself, this book contains some interesting discussions on the art of Herbam.

The Dragon’s Flames

A treatise on the art of ignem, this book was penned by a flmabeau mage that used to be in the covenant, before he accidentally destroyed himself when experimenting with a powerful attack spell.

Art: Ignem

The World Remade

Unlike many books on the same subject, this book takes the art of imaginem and deals with it in an almost mathematical manner.

Art: Imaginem

Unwrapping the mind

This book was written by a criamon magus destined to become prima, or so it was thought, instead he entered twilight at the covenant of Golemsburgh and has never returned.

Art: Mentem
Level: 12
Quality: 16

Shaping Mountains

This is an old and worn book and seemingly unremarkable besides the wealth of information within.

Art: Terram
Level: 14
Quality: 16

Thaumaturgical Beasts

Despite it’s name this book has nothing to do with animals, although it does cover using the art of vim against creatures with a magical might. This is a book with a wide range of information on the nature of magic itself and how to manipulate it.

Art: Vim
