This item appears on your cursor when you right-click An Ancient Text (VOA pre-launch mission reward).

Translated, it reads:

I never saw anything so big, beautiful 
and terrifying. The invaders of our original
planet were just horrifying. The great 
beasts of the beasts domain are tiny in 
comparison. But this being from our new home
was just spectacular.

It flew in on great wings, larger than a 
mansion. Red iridescent scales blazed in the 
sunlight. They covered its body, starting 
from its long tail, over its strong, 
muscular body, across its long neck, and up 
over its huge fanged head to the tip of its 
snout. Fire billowed from its mouth as it 
raked over the buildings. Magic pulsed 
around it and slammed into the ground and 
the figures running from it. Its fearsome 
intelligence was used to great effect as it 
chose the best target to destroy.

But in the end it was chased away and we 
were saved by the power of the Spirit of 
Tides and a few blind dreamers.

If they had not brought such destruction, I 
would so love to live to see one again. But 
the Veil closes in.

You have to complete the VoA prelaunch quests for the "An Ancient Text" There are 2 versions. This one and the range item this comes from when you right-click it. They were available a litle while back but might be re-activated soon.

I made this translation by repeatedly openning the book and looking for consistant characters and occasion completed words.
