The creation of a venerated Catholic Saint, this exquisite and ornate tome
describes the means by which divine perfection may be attained. It does so
by aphorisms, parables, sermons, and other occasionally obfuscatory means,
detailing the "thirty steps" towards true piety. The book is a difficult
read, taking approximately (30 - Intelligence) hours to complete.
Demons reading the book will realize its danger quickly enough; those foolish enough to read a full chapter or more will take 1d6 Soul Hits and a point of Dissonance. Mortals will be unaffected unless they have manifested a sixth Force and are not Symphonically Aware - in that case, make a d666 roll against the mortal's Perception when they complete the book; on a success, they become Symphonically Aware.
The book is best given to angels, however. An angel with a single point of dissonance who reads and understands the material in the Scala will find his piety renewed, and his Dissonance lost. This may only be done once per angel, unfortunately - once read, the book should really be passed on to someone else who needs it. Also, it will have no effect on angels with more than one point of Dissonance! Such a condition makes it too difficult to fully comprehend the lessons taught therein. Still, though limited, this relic finds much use amongst the Host. It is currently in the care of Archangel Laurence.
