"Yar, this be terrible!
Couldn't sell that even if I wanted!
Would have Antimagos Monks hunting me from the ends of the earth, if we weren't immediately murdered by whatever horrid machinations the text seeks.
Listen here Ramrods, we only know about the Spellbooks of the Ur-Mage from the Monks of Antimagos.
Yar, It's said that the fate of any of the Ur-Mage's would be apprentices would be tied to these damned 13 books!
It is whispered among the mad, that sufficient knowledge of a book would be enough to be granted an audience with the Ur-Mage.
The monks claim that the mastery of all of the spell books would allow an individual to achieve power of parity of the Ur-Mage, but warn the books themselves are dangerous fiends who crave the souls of brave readers.
Every nation you can sail to, prohibits the use of them. They would not hesitate to move their entire military to contain them. It's a bloody useless thing to try and fence, if you ask me.
Those Monks have dedicated generations of hunters to attempt to destroy or hide these grimoires.
It's said that usage of any of books could cause apocalyptic dangers to nations surrounding them."
"Any of you louts heard the tale of those that crewed the The Crooked Turtle?
The madmen carrying it to a supposed guarded sanctuary fell to temptation.
They turned the sea around them to acid, the men to abominations, and created the Great Moving Whirlpool of the West Salts!"[/b]
"When I was a studious lass in academies, the old bones would claim the grimoires were another instrument for the Ur-Mage to cheat death.
Acolytes who master the texts would become the seed of the Ur-Mage's potential rebirth.
Acolytes who fail, merely power the texts themselves.
This is be a grim thing to find."
