Ok, I'm not necessarily here for help, more curiosity. I've looked all over the internet and haven't found any references to this. I just finished the P. Schuyler & Sons quest and I decided to grab magnus' book and read it. He argued with me, but eventually lets me borrow it. a few seconds after he agrees to let me read it, my entire party (virgil, sogg, magnus) and myself are instantly killed-the effect is the same as the one that kills the lady who wants you to steal the crystal ball. In fact, I still have the crystal ball and thought that was what was killing me, but it's the book. I've read the book in previous play-throughs. Not sure why it's killing me, but, like I said, I haven't found any other references to this and was curious other people's experiences. Some things to consider: Maybe its an interaction between the book and the crystal ball? i doubt it. My character is an elf, perhaps the book doesn't like elves? Could it be magical aptitude? My character is a female, though that seems unlikely as the reason... Does anyone else know anything about it?
