Can someone tell me what this book is? According to the Law one is suppose to keep this book but there is no reference to what exactly it is or what is suppose to be in the book? :-?

Thanks!

I must admit, I was completely clueless as to what Bales and Apies were, so I went and did some googling....

from http://www.draknet.com/proteus/nofink.htm

"Let the Craft keep books with the names of all herbs which are good for people, and all cures, so all may learn. But keep another book with all the Bales and Apies (poisons and opiates) and let only the Elders and other trustworthy people have this knowledge.
Ardanes #136-137, as given in the Grimoire of Lady Sheba. "

took a bit of finding - most time it just came up with the quote, without the bit of explanation in brackets.... hope that helps...

Thank you so much. I must not have gone far enough with my search for I too found the mention but never the meaning. Yes, that helps considerably as I have run across the mention so often which left me clueless. :-?

Again, thanks,

Brightest Blessings,

Nora :-D
