The sheets are spotted with fungus and eradicating ink. Some unextracted secret may still hide therein.

Success

One page amongst many

(Airs-based)

Clouds.png AirsDescription
1-13The page under your hand records the household and personal affairs of one Theophilus Withernwick, vicar of Saint Alban Protomartyr. Almost every answer is blank.
15-24This page is not a list of answers, but a list of auxiliary questions to be asked. The spidery, blotted handwriting looks as though it was drafted by someone new to the workings of a fountain pen.
25-49These sheets list those living near the Tenterground Synagogue. The writing is small and very neat.
50-73A crumbling, much-censored page describes the household of a parliamentarian. The words 'missing' and 'underwater' are discernible under the blots.
75-89A long page details the inhabitants of Bell Lane. There is no Bell Lane in London any longer; even the name is forbidden.
90-100[…] the census subjects are organised by age, height, diet, and sensitivity to light. Seven individuals are recorded as missing and three others as having gone Neathmad, a condition from which their relatives do not evidently expect them to recover.


Failure

One page amongst many

(Airs-based)

Clouds.png AirsDescription
1-49A fungal dust blows off the page when you handle it, and the lettering has faded almost completely. The writer, it seems, was limited to a preparation of mushroom ink – one of less than archival quality.
50-74There are only a few lines of text on this page, followed by a series of drawings of Rubbery men. It is obvious the artist had only a rudimentary understanding of Rubbery anatomy.
75-100This page seems to have been dropped into water and soaked through entirely. It still smells faintly of the Stolen River.
