From D&D Wiki
|This material is published under the OGL|
"In the first days of the world the gods fought one another, and the battles in the heavens were mirrored on the earth. There was no justice, no order; all was chaos and confusion. Finally the creators of the world gathered the lesser gods before them. The lords of creation brought forth a silver book, and on its pages they inscribed the laws that would govern both gods and men."
This is the doctrine of the priests of the Silver Book. According to legend, the Book outlasted the gods who created it; it has existed through many ages of creation. With every age, new gods have added to the book; it contains all the laws that have ever been and ever will be. The priests of the Book believe that laws are the cornerstone of civilization, regardless of what those laws are. These priests spend most of their time traveling, studying the laws of different nations and helping young kingdoms develop new laws. They are widely respected as impartial mediators, and in some kingdoms priests of the Book are authorized to act as itinerant justices.
The priests of the Silver Book worship the Book itself; while inanimate, the Book is a sentient force and the embodiment of the law. The Silver Book has no overt agenda; it is a resource, a source of order and inspiration that will guide the world for many ages to come. The symbol of the deity is the Silver Book itself. Its favored weapon is a quarter-staff with a silver band on each end.
