Powers: A living grimoire whose contents include spells may use that magic to defend itself. Liber Pupa Obscurus has 30 Power Points, Spellcasting d12, and knows the following powers:
deflection (shadowy hands), conceal arcana (changes appearance to look like a regular tome; no detect), obscure (sphere of darkness), teleport (carried through shadow by one of its constructs), and summon shadow puppet (10 power points each if summoned as an extra, twice that if as a Wild Card (spooky latin incantation).
There exists a book on shadow puppets known as the Liber Pupa Obscurus (Book of Dark Puppets) that is said to have existed since Roman times. Shadows created using the book are not just tricks of the light, but become living beings. Like the color of their form, their hearts are as black as night. Stats for them can be found here. The stories are true – such a book does in fact exist. This copy is one of the originals and the shear weight of time and dark magic have brought to a state of awareness. Like the shadow puppets it creates, It is thoroughly evil, whispering dark secrets to its owner, stoking paranoia, twisting meanings – always making small incremental pushes designed to trip its user straight into hell.
