Fragments from the Book of Abdul
Type Book
Game(s) Alone in the Dark (1992)

Extracts from the book of Abdul is a book that can be found and picked up in the Library (2nd Floor) of Derceto. Like De Vermiis Mysteriis, it causes ill effects to anyone who has read the book, unless the protagonist is currently standing on a special tile with a pentagram on it in the Ritual Chamber (2nd Floor) which is accessible via the library. it is less deadly than the other book, losing some health instead of being killed instantly after reading. Upon reading the book, the protagonist is driven to the brink of madness, laying down and beating his head upon the floor before experiencing horrid bodily distortions, stretching and twisting into tortured shapes.

Inscription Edit

from the Book
of Abdul.

In the antique city of dead R'lyeh.
Cthulhu dreams and waits. In the pit
of time the unspeakable lies in wait.
That is not dead which can eternal lie.
R'lyeh, your blocks of stone seals
the ritual that gives birth to fear
Cthulhu fhtagn,
Cthulhu fhtagn.

Let he who knows how to invoke the
stones act. it is time. Let the shadow
of Cthulhu darken the sky. May the
servitor of the black Goat of the Woods
with a thousand youngs sound his flute
in honour of the unspeakable
Cthulhu fhtagn,
Cthulhu fhtagn.

May he who may not be named cast his
withering gaze upon the unbeliever for
he is the door, the key, and the guardian
of the door and holds you now in his
immense power.

[The following verse is added in the Macintosh port]

May madness strike down he who reads and thinks he understands.  Nobody can pierce the mystery and not pay the price.  Nobody can contemplate the face of gods with impunity.  If strength abandons he who reads me, then may madness overcome him.
