One of the oldest skin manuscripts in existence comes from Iceland. It exists as part of an exhibit in the Arni Magnusson Institute of Icelandic Studies. For most people this artifacct is just a page from history, but that is because they don't think of the bigger picture. When there is one page, there are bound to be more pages. This is why we sponsored an investigation, the sole purpose of which, was to find other skin pages that were left behind. Seek and ye shall find, right? It comes as no surprise that there were more or that our people-- who were hand selected-- found them using their natural psychic abilities.
I will not bore you with all of the innate details. Rather, will jump straight to the conclusion. We found the rest of the pages that went along with the one that was alread retrieved. It is part of a book that was used by ancient Icelandic Wizards. It was a Necronomicon of sorts and could be used to bring the dead back to life. I'm not just talking about the human dead either. I'm also talking about the undead, the ones that were never alive in the first place. In short, this book holds ancient spells that have been written on human skin. The powers of this book has been set into this piece. These spells will raise the dead and allow them to appear to you in full spiritual form. It will also allow you to summon forth any swath of other type of creatures such as vampires, werewolves, djinn-- you know the kind of entities that were given a different type of life. These beings hold magic themselves and can also be summoned using the powers of the Icelandic Necronomicon. You can summon souls just for visiting, for gaining their powers, or learning information that you need to now. In fact, you can summon these entities for any reason you want, even if you just want a magical companion. The power is very real and the choice is up to you. Just know that this piece can is excessively powerful.
