Vex's Grimoire

Description

Shortly after her trip to Mustafar and gaining access to the libraries of arcane knowledge stored there at Fortress Vader, the Sith Vex began keeping a grimoire that contained important magical information. The book serves as a magical journal into which Vex transcribes spells, rituals, potions, and other arcane secrets that she encounters on her journey to become a stronger and stronger Sith witch. Much of its early content was copied from texts she observed on Mustafar, while later contents were her own notes.

The book can be summoned with a simple conjuration spell should she require it while on any number of various missions. It is otherwise stored at Castle Gaol on Belsavis, in Vex's personal quarters. The book is enchanted to display blank pages unless Vex or someone she has given explicit permission to has picked up the book.

Contents

Section 1: Ritual Supplies

The first section of the grimoire contains a list of supplies Sith witches typically use in their rituals. This section details the various uses of ritual daggers, coins, amulets, and statues as well as the process for creating such magical equipment.

Section 2: Korriban Magick

The second section details the fundamental spells of Korriban magick as well as how to gain access to this unique branch of Sith magic. It was this section that prompted Vex to visit Ziost in search of the approval of the ancient Sith spirits, part of a dark ceremony outlined in the grimoire.

Section 3: Sithspawn

The third section provides instructions for conjuring and commanding Sithspawn. While the creation and control of abominations are an entirely different art, and far harder, the ability to infuse dead bones with Sith magic to reanimate them, or even conjure demonic guardians of the Sith tombs from Korriban to Ziost fall within the range of possibilities from this potent chapter. Though, it should be noted that the magic within is incapable of actually restoring life to the dead—only reanimating and puppeteering a dead corpse.

Section 4: Enchanting

The fourth section contains instructions for enchanting objects with Sith runes. The carving of runes into certain objects or bodies with a ritual knife (detailed in the pages) allows the Sith witch to impart certain effects or attributes onto the object the runes are carved into.

Section 5: Communion

Said to be the most dangerous section of the book, the fifth section contains information on how to contact and commune with Sith spirits that have bound themselves to tombs and objects rather than passing on into the Force. This allows the witch in question to consult with the dead to learn valuable secrets about the past, similarly to a holocron. However, the spells to perform this art are extremely dangerous, and all but the most powerful of witches cannot handle more than one or two spirits at a time without losing control and risking possession or even death.

Note: It should not be presumed that the above details everything in the grimoire. Vex can magically add pages to the book as she learns more about dark side magick and will add those pages to the above-listed sections. For example, she has transcribed the contents of Darth Phobos' holocron into the book.

Intent

Personal Lore. Really, all of this is just fluff to show that Vex is learning dark side lore and magic. Nothing in here, outside of Korriban magic, which is linked to its approved article, is meant to be used in PvP—just in story threads.

Just for my own peace of mind, please note somewhere in section 3 that the dead are not returned to life, but only to some unholy half-life and it cannot be used to genuinely bring someone back from the dead.
