Voynich Manuscript

Looking for something a little offbeat to give to your players? print off a couple of pages from the voynich manuscript and know with full clarity that there is no way they will ever crack it. No one ever has, except fr one excentric indivual who translated it by 'asking god'.

Yale has the entire book scanned and available as photos, and it includes strange plant drawings and other things of great interest to COC players.

The books providence is equally interesting as it has been credited to roger bacon, and was once in the hands of the holy roman emperor.

Most likely the book is a clever fake done at the time, to give wealthy patrons something interesting to show off to others. But perhaps it shows another world, the dream world perhaps?
