This Monkey Paw guy sounds like a great Dungeon Master, or maybe a Djinn.
Either way, I’d like to meet him. Sounds like my sort of fellow.
Which book do you think is owned by Mr Monkey Paw? The book in the book, or the book this forum is about.
Of course, what if they are the same thing?
What if Lenamare’s book is actually: Demons of Astlan (The Complete Works, all 83 volumes)?
And thus by opening it, they will be able to read their own future and the future of their world, and that of the Abyss etc etc.
