The road not taken
This stone disk might be the key for deciphering the coded message from Holgrath. It seems nothing but a stone disk with letters and unrecognizable symbols carved upon it. However, closer examination reveals that the disk consists of two homocentric rings. The outer ring is immovable and bears all twenty-six letters of the alphabet. The inner ring can be rotated, but only in one direction. It also bears twenty-six symbols, but anyone unfamiliar with ancient Demerian cannot recognize most of them. A strange mechanism can be seen on the back of the disk. It is a small, metal ratchet; a gear that confines the rotation of the inner ring to one direction only.
