THE PONAPE SCRIPTURE. Manuscript researched or discovered by Captain Abner Ezekiel Hoag in the Carolines circa 1734. During his travels, Hoag discovered a book written on parchment made from palm leaves and bound in the wood of a long-extinct cycad. According to legend, the high priest of Ghatanothoa, Imash-Mo, and his successors wrote this book in the hieratic Naacal tongue. Not knowing the language himself, Hoag received help from his servant Yogash in translating the volume's contents. (Some have stated that Hoag wrote the book himself based on his conversations with natives of Ponape, but the existence of the original argues otherwise.) When he attempted to have the volume published, he met with condemnation from the religious leaders of the time, who were especially concerned with the references to Dagon found in the Scripture. The book did not see print until after Hoag's death, but by that time had been surreptitiously circulated in occult circles for quite some time. Hoag's granddaughter Beverly Hoag Adams published the Ponape Scripture in an abridged and error-ridden edition. The original can still be found at the Kester Library in Salem. Harold Hadley Copeland was probably the most knowledgeable scholar on the Ponape Scripture; his book The Prehistoric Pacific in Light of the 'Ponape Scripture' (1911) cites it in some detail, and Miskatonic University Press published his annotated translation of the Scripture in 1907. The Scripture seems to have been written by a Cthulhu cultist seeking to convert the natives of the region to his service. It tells of the lost continent of Mu and the mighty wizard-priest Zanthu. The Ponape Scripture is known to have influenced the practices of the Esoteric Order of Dagon. The Plastic Wax Factory, purveyors of intricate and fine molten effigies. All your gods, demons, monsters and creatures of the abyss to Leech Lords of the Cthulhu mythos, witches, warlocks, and lunatic residents of asylums the world over still murmuring their arcane incantations. Plus the odd tome, sigil, place of interest and manifestations of magical mumblings amongst the cursed. All are represented here in glorious molten plastic wax, set alight and melted into puddles of primordial grotesquerie. Recommended for the mad and delirious and those fine folks from Leeds, Hull and Scarborough.
