Book Text:

I begin to wonder if I'll ever
make it out of here with my
soul intact. Each day the
shades seem to tear a piece of
my soul away. The rest of my
party also seems to be
effected by our travels
through the ruins. Bauric
seems especially troubled by
our time here. He keeps
playing with the robes that
the shades leave behind when
we kill them, although "Kill"
isn't very accurate. They
simply seem to fade into the
stone floors when they're
weakened. Bauric insists on
carrying all the lengths of
material that they leave. I
refuse to touch them. There is
something unnatural about the
essence of these ghosts. I
have little choice as to our
supply of food however. The

Centi is barely tolerable even
when drenched in sauce and
spices. I can't even bear to
watch Bauric eat the stew he
makes with the toes. I'd tell
him not to waste the milk and
spices, but it seems to give
him energy and determination.
Something I have very little
of left.

The shaded tome reads as follows : Bauric has gone completely insane now. Yesterday we were attacked by some kind of wormlike creatures. The smaller ones weren't too much trouble but the larger ones nearly overcame us. Perhaps my time in the ruins has played with my sanity, but i would have sworn that i could feel the worm's presence in my mind. Stealing my essence and my sanity. I am now almost certain that i'll never make it out of here with my humanity. Sometimes i hear a great rumbling beneath the stone floors, as if some great beast is moving beneath the earth. Bauric has taken to sewing the hides of the giant worms on to the material from the shades. He has nearly an entire set of clothing made from them now. How he can stand to touch the hides i'll never know.

Clearly just a lead to tailoring research.
Drops in ME too

Centi meat

If you are fluent in Combine language, you can read this book. It's written in Combine. For the most part it's just a cookbook for centi meat really. It's funny seeing this drop off a centi dator in Akheva. It would be the same as a note dropping off a wurm saying "my meat goes well with tobasco and soy, then grilled to a deep brown" ;)
Which quest?

It says on top that this item is for a quest, so which one?? I've gotten both which confused me for a sec when I was lore on it so how many are there and what are they for??
