This text confers a degree of respect, affinity, almost a preference for reptilian and serpentine life. Hints of an advanced reptilian civilization and technology pre-dating mamalian life on Earth are threaded through this book. After suitable study (the “Examination Period”), this reptilian perspective will advance the reader’s understanding of hyperdimensional forces, and thus spell-use capability.
Lieutenant Hawkins took this text from the chief researcher’s library at Natzweiler-Struthof.
