"Dear Lubaf, I am sorry to disappoint you but you won't be able to find the Scroll of Omnipotence in this place. I have hidden it more effectively. You will need to find the red rooster at dawn. Then you'll encounter the final challenge. With passionate hate, Alhacrast, Overlord of Jak-Nagiur."This may be what Khelavaster refers to as the foolish legends that built up around the quest for the crumpled scroll and the Trident of the Red Rooster. Upon further examination of the executable, it seems the Scroll of Omnipotence could only be read by champions of Order/Balance/Chaos:
You read the scroll of omnipotence As you read the scroll you suddenly feel great power surging through your body. You feel invincible and your abilities are increased by enourmous amounts! Now you are a true champion of %s! ...ripped to pieces by trying to claim power not meant for %s.. Immediately you realize that this was a big mistake as you are not prepared for the wave of power that suddenly floats your body. You are ripped to pieces almost instantly!....
The executable contains the following texts:
You enter the Red Rooster Inn. It's completely empty... You enter the Red Rooster Inn as the sun is just rising. Alganon, the innkeeper, welcomes you with great joy and honors you for helping the ancient dwarf. As a reward he grants you a long item wrapped in a sheet. He winks at you and mumbles "Ye know what'ta do with dat, don't ye?". Due to some urgent business Alganon then leaves.
The mystery about the book is the fact that nobody has managed to read it.
Scanning the executable gives some further hints on successfull reading of the tome:
