This book is an entity from another plane of existence, or the fraction of the entity that your senses can perceive, and it serves you. Simply carrying it increases your Intimidation and skill at Gates Methods and Spells by 1 point each (though the thing is very much illegal, and carrying it is a risk). If you actually use it, you can Summon Terrors to torment an enemy, doing 5 points of damage and adding 6 points of Stress, with no rolls required; at the same time though, you find yourself Touched by Evil. Your Charm Decreases by 1, your Strength Increases by 1, and you gain two points of Stress - all effects lasting until you can rest. You also lose a Step of Ethics.
- Diavesque: Intimidation, Gates Methods, Gates Spells +1 (passive)
- Summon Terrors: Damage +5, Stress +6 to opponent. Charm -1, Strength +1, Stress +2 to you until Rest. Expand Ethics -1 SS to you. (active)
Since you can hardly advertise having these powers, it's best that you don't use them in Duels.
