Book of Faces

The book was made of a very thin leather that almost seemed fragile. Every few pages the leather would change; whether in quality or colour; and with it, the story would also change.

If one were to take the time to translate all the languages in the book they would find a history of the cult. The first few stories, written in the most ancient language, told the stories of the first generation.

There weren’t many in the first generation, only about ten or so, but they were close. They hid from the rest of the world as they worshipped in the dark. They married and had children to whom they taught their religion.

The religion grew and ten followers soon became twenty which became fifty then over one hundred. But the book didn’t hold all of their stories. After the first ten stories, the only stories which were written into the book were the stories of priests and priestesses who had made a difference to the cult.

Researchers who dared to ask the right questions and complete the right tests may find out more than they wished to. If the researcher tested the material of the book, they would have a most gruesome discovery. For the leather that makes up the paper is comprised of human skin.

To be more specific, the leather is made up of skin from the faces of the people the stories are about.

To the members of the cult, becoming a part of the book is a rite of honour. Many members have pledged their lives to the protecting of this sacred book while others have pledged their lives to becoming a part of the book.

For all the history and sacredness of the book, its name is quite simple and will give clues to the book’s composition. The title, if translated properly, is “The Book of Faces”.

The AP Roberts is an extremely rare creature and there is only one known AP Roberts in the world. Usually off in its own little world, the AP returns to reality when it gets lonely. This elusive creature is rather difficult to catch on film, however will pose for drawings. The AP, though wild by nature, can be tamed and makes a wonderful pet. It should also be known that while the AP gets along with most creatures it has an intense fear of insects and large canines. The AP lives on a diet of mainly vegetables and candy but is not known to refuse food that is made and offered through kindness. The drink of choice for the AP is tea though it is known to drink water and juice. There is still much to be learned of the AP however, most agree that the writings of the AP are truly something to behold. Hopefully, one day the AP will find a good Agent creature who will introduce the AP's writings to a good publisher creature and the world will be able to read the AP's works.
