Strange hallowed tome is an item that can be found by investigating a skeleton in the Hallowed Sepulchre lobby. When first obtained the tome only contains the first page of the story but mysterious pages found while searching coffins in the sepulchre can be added to the tome to reveal more of the story. There are five total pages with each page being unique to one of the five levels of the sepulchre. Page 1 comes with the book, while pages 2 through 6 come from floors 1 through 5, respectively. Coffins have a 1/10 chance to contain the page unique to that floor[1] and the player cannot receive a duplicate page while they still have another copy of that page stored or in their inventory. Pages added to the hallowed tome cannot be received again and the tome will still contain all added pages even if it is lost and reobtained.

A record of which mysterious pages have already been acquired can be found in the collection log. Though the floor each page is unique to is not mentioned in their title they are ordered by floor in the collection log.

You know what? Blow the others! If the queen can marry a human, then why can't I marry an icyene?

'You're just a blacksmith,' they say. 'She's a warrior.' Well damn them and damn anyone else that tries to stop me. Every warrior needs a blacksmith after all. I'm going to propose to her. Tonight.

She said yes! I knew she would. All the others can go eat their words now. We're getting married!

Our families are a bit concerned of course. They seem to be supportive though. Thanks to the queen, this sort of thing is more acceptable now. Still, I hope they stop asking about 'bedroom compatibility' soon.

It was the wedding of dreams! Marrying one of her standing brings some privilege. As such, we were able to hold the ceremony in the shadow of the Acropolis.

As night fell, we were treated to a musical performance more beautiful than any I'd seen. But it goes without saying, nothing was as beautiful as her.

Drakan. A name that sends shivers down the spine of any sane man. We'd all heard the stories, the nightmares. Now, he has arrived at our doorstep.

The others aren't worried. 'The warriors will protect Hallowvale,' they say. They don't need to care. Their wives work in the city. They're safe, but she is not.

Her unit has their orders. She's set to leave for the frontline in three days' time.

I didn't tell her, but I paid a visit to the priests at the Hallowed Sepulchre. Icyene and humans are normally buried on different levels. For us, I pray they make an exception. Eternity is too long to be away from her.

It's never easy to say goodbye. I thought I'd mentally prepared myself for it. But all the preparation in the world doesn't match reality.

Saradomin, I pray to you. Keep her safe from harm. Please, return my love to me. For in this world of darkness, she is my only light.
