The First Scroll
Written from the first-person perspective of the titan Gulnaqsh. This scroll is a history of what the world was like before the Laws of the Mystics were enacted, and how they came to be.
The Beginning: The story of how there was no law once upon a time. The planes had no boundaries and melted into one another. Ethereal, prime material, Elysium and Astral had no meaning.
Writing is the First Law: Gulnaqsh, seeing that all around him is chaos, dreams of a better universe. He invents writing, which becomes the First Law; permanence. Through permanence comes definition and individual separation. The planes take on unique characteristics. The Prime Material takes on aspects of all of the planes as one.
The Fable of the Solar: The story of how the sky was once full of suns, each one a ‘solar’ or angel of light. Below the solars were angelic beings of various levels of power. During the War Between the Planes, the solar Artema led the angelic forces against the dark creatures. At the end of the war, the angelic forces were victorious and felt they needed to protect their victory.
The Second Scroll
Written in third person perspective.
The Teller of Tales: A recounting of the traveler Aroo who came from "a far away land." He recounts how his native land does not have the Laws of the Mystics and is a horrible place. As he witnesses examples of the Law in action, he is continuously amazed and praises the wisdom of the Mysticians.
The Third Scroll
Written from the first-person perspective of the titan Gulnaqsh. These stories concern themselves with the wages of sin.
The Sower and the Reaper: A parable about the value of work. The Sower works the land, but the Reaper comes along and takes what the sower sows. In return, he promises to protect the Sower from all enemies. Then, one day, the Reaper drinks himself into a drunken stupor. While he is besotted, orcs attack the Sower and kill him. The Reaper awakens from his stupor and sees the Sower dead. Unconcerned with his negligence of duty, the Reaper eats his store of food. When the next season comes, there is no Sower to grow the food the Reaper needs to eat, and he starves to death.
Pecatuomo: The story of Pecatuomo, a man who was looking for answers. He looked for guidance in the rocks, in the trees, then the seas, and found no answer. Finally, he runs to the devil Urgetha, who promises him only falsehoods in this life and misery in the next. Understood as a parable for druids.
The Learned Elf: The story of how Gulnaqsh met the first elf. This elf lived a life of bestial savagery. He was no more than an animal, with no morals and no gift of speech. The elf survives off of raw meat. Gulnaqsh civilized the elf. By becoming civilized, the elf learns that he was living a sinful life. Among elves, Corellon Larethian is the one doing the civilizing in the stories, not the titan, but the story is basically the same.
The Fourth Scroll
Written in the third person. This tells the history of how the angelic forces defeated the forces of chaos and how the gods of the Mystic Circle, with the power of the Law behind them, were able to defeat the forces of chaos. While the First Scroll contains background on the Heavenly War and glosses over the events themselves, this is a detailed history of them. They are written with a great eye to detail. Many of the most significant figures, both mortal and angelic, in the religion feature in these stories.
The Fifth Scroll
Written from the first-person perspective of a convert rapt in the joys and ecstasy of finding the right path. This scroll is almost all songs and poems of praise and happiness. This scrolls tends to the most quoted by the populace, as it contains the most joyful elements. Iedi’s followers, in particular, hold this scroll to be the most sacred and make much of the fact that it is found in the middle of the Nine Scrolls, a metaphor for the placement of the sexual organs on humanoids.
The Sixth Scroll
Written by a woman who calls herself Trina. These stories often involve martyrs.
The Orcs Who Never Joined: A martyrdom story. A pilgrim, known as Xxxxxxxxxxxx, travels to visit an orc tribe in an unspecified part of Merane. She was unable to convince the orcs, who killed her instead. Within a week, a disease devastated the tribe and killed all but one who had admitted to Xxxxxxxx that he saw the light of the Sun.
The Good Druid: A story of a Druid who was moved by the song of a Mystician wandering in the woods near his home. Fearing his brethren will kill her, he hides her in a basket. When the other druids arrive, Artema reaches down and pulls her free of the basket, lifting her to heaven and safety in a beam of sunlight. Realizing what their brother had done, the druids eviscerate him. As he dies, he whispers that it is for justice.
The Seventh Scroll
The Eighth Scroll
The Ninth Scroll
Written from the perspective of an unnamed narrator speaking to all living things in a voice of warning and condemnation.
The Abomination of Undeath: Why the passage into the afterlife is important, and the sinfulness of bringing the dead back to life. Examples of undead are given and undead hunters and sages of the undead use this scroll as a basic guide to classification.
The Necromancer: A tale of the first necromancer (none now know if the story is allegorical or historical). His race is never mentioned, and his name (Mord Wa) is not known in any culture on Arelas, though he is referred to with male pronouns throughout the text. Tradition holds, however, that he was a human, The term Mordwer, or practioner of the Mordwer Arts, is used to refer to necromancers today. There is some description of the practices in the text and necromancers will actually use it as a guide when first studying.
The False Promise: The narrator speaks bluntly about confusing the right gods with all gods. The text seems explicitly concerned with rejecting monotheism. This is almost certainly a late entry, written after the None Scrolls were first codified.
