Dark Passages: The Exploration of Mao Pao for Shadow of the Demon Lord






Created using Dark Passages

The Exploration of Mao Pao is a tablet made from the scale of a sundrake that appears new and unused. Small, cramped words have been lightly printed upon it in darks speech using squid ink. There is a single illustration of Mao Pao, the Living Orifice, in the center of the tablet that animates, defecating blood, if the viewer stares at it for more than a few moments. The work is a treatise on how to contact and gain Mao Pao's attention by an unknown author. A character who spends 1d3 weeks studying it, gains the Forbidden tradition and a Rank 0 spell from that tradition.
