"The Voynich manuscript is a handwritten book thought to have been written in the early 15th century and comprising about 240 vellum pages,[notes 1] most with illustrations. Although many possible authors have been proposed, the author, script, and language remain unknown. It has been described as "the world's most mysterious manuscript".
Generally presumed to be some kind of ciphertext, the Voynich manuscript has been studied by many professional and amateur cryptographers, including American and British codebreakers from both World War I and World War II. Yet it has defied all decipherment attempts, becoming a historical cryptology cause célèbre. The mystery surrounding it has excited the popular imagination, making the manuscript a subject of both fanciful theories and novels."
Some scientists surmise that the book was indeed written by an evil sorcerer and/or dragon lord.
Who wrote this goddamn thing?? It strikes me as a little odd that no one has been able to translate it yet, because think of the awesome shit it might say. Perhaps it is a grimoire of 8th level wizard spells or a tome of epic cleric incantations! Maybe it's just some crazy bastard's cookbook or diary. Either way, I'm just going to assume it's enchanted and dangerous.
