The Eight Scrolls

From PathfinderWiki

The Eight Scrolls is the name given to the main holy text of the goddess Desna. It is comprised of eight brief scrolls that contain all the doctrine of the church, along with her earliest history: her dealings with the other gods, how she discovered her powers, and how she fixed the stars to the heavens. The fifth scroll deals with how mortals should behave, but is written with enough internal contradictions that it sparks much discussion among the faithful. The clergy of Desna generally will accept most interpretations of the text, as long as they don't veer off too far from standard practices and teachings. The deity's informality is reflected in the fact that the Eight Scrolls are short enough to easily fit into two scroll cases (one if the transcriber's handwriting is small enough).[1][2][3]
