FILE/ The Egyptian Book of the Dead, They Key of Keys to Power
The Egyptian Book of the Dead is filled from cover to cover with spells, texts and paths of the afterlife, where magic functions and conducts differently. There is a ritual inside of it with complete instructions that will create the key of keys, which allows one, while remaining in human form, to access the afterlife. It is granted by the dead themselves and any one individual that possesses it becomes the sole conductor of this power.
The original item that had been the vessel of the power within this piece had been created with this book. To be granted the key to the power among the afterlife, the ritual had called for the complete loss of ones humanity by embracing the most primal aspects of their being. They were required to essentially be a shell within which the power thrived due to the fact that there was so much of it, there really was no room for anything else.
The power itself is unique and specific to the individual. It can be molded into anything they desire. There is no official documentation of what the previous individuals have been capable of with this power because it only becomes known to those who hold the power itself and those they may have trusted to protect it during their time alive. However, the power can still be explored.
Over an extended period of time, upon the death of the one who previously owned it, the piece is reclaimed by the dead, over the course of which it gathers more power. It often times is pulled from the original vessel and placed into a new one to preserve the energy within securely. The reason this is necessary is because the vessel is often linked with the person who owned it before. When they die, the vessel cracks and becomes unstable. Because of this, this piece has seen different forms. The form it is in now will remain the form it stays in until the power shifts in ownership once more. If that never happens, the piece will never change in appearance.
The earliest individual to own this piece was MerNeith who mostly used it to control Egypt after her husband's death. It is not certain whether or not she received it from him or from another source. Her influence was temporary and the item was eventually passed on to her son, Den, who rose to power when he came of age. From there, the item has been in the possession of primarily royalty up until now. Whether the holder is royalty or not, however, it does naturally raise the person toward a higher social position due to its nature and the fact that it is used to being surrounded by royalty among both the living and dead.
This piece grants anything within the power of the magic of the afterlife. Whatever the dead or general spirits can touch, you can acquire or channel. You gain control over the spirits of the afterlife with this magic because the magic that is now yours to control is the same magic that allows them to exist. You can draw any spirits or spirit to you that exists in the underworld just by thinking of it and pulling it toward you mentally. When they appear before you, you can ask them for anything you desire. If it is not something they can grant, they will guide you to another that can. There will never be anything that you will desire that you cannot acquire with this piece. This piece is capable of dual magic and has not been tampered with in any way.
