Book of Chaos Total War Warhammer

Some grimoires are not for the weak of will.

A Grimoire is a tome of arcane knowledge, used by wizards to study the magical arts. Usually massive tomes bound in strange leather (sometimes Human skin or dragon hide), they are heavy, cumbersome, and inappropriate for long travels.[2a]

Grimoires are not magic items as such, but they fall into the category of magical treasure. They are books of spells, and spellcasters can attempt to learn new spells from them.[1a]
