The Babylon Logs, also known as The Babylonian Scrolls, were a series of texts which were recovered from 1955 – 2008. The texts were made up of multiple different volumes of which were found in different geographical locations that spanned continents. The logs were dated back at least two thousand years.
There are seven overall volumes of the logs but as of now, only five volumes were ever recovered. The finders of these logs all ended up dead. Most committed suicide and were found in the most disturbing positions. The others went missing. They still have not been found.
One of the remaining two volumes is rumored to be located within the Vatican’s Secret Archive, however, one must require explicit approval to enter the library and even then, outsiders are barred from browsing the full extent of the archives. Researchers are baffled as to where the other volume could be located. They theorize it may be on the Australian continent. The last two texts’ whereabouts are still unknown to this day.
What was even more baffling was that although the volumes’ parchment and ink were dated back to the same time period, the volumes were written in the language relative to the geographical location of which they were found. This is impossible as most of the languages simply did not exist during the period of the scrolls' creation. This has forced many scholars to question the authenticity of the scrolls.

The logs are transcribed and translated online for ease of access to anyone who wants to read. Make of them what you will as no one has yet to piece together what they mean which is made even more difficult due to the two missing volumes. The quality of the scrolls have severely impacted readability in some volumes.

The years set in stone shall conceive only pain. Strongholds will burn.

Babylonia will close, locking its [illegible]. The children will writhe in
the streets from fear as their parents are snatched. The exalted

Excrement perverted the streets, attracting rats to feast in droves.
Veins bulged and blackened under pale skin. Legs swelled and fingers
decayed, unveiling bone at the tips.

The exalted uses the flesh domain to engage his disciples. The master is the rain and he is the sea. He is the stars as well as the

They were made to suffer. His entrance will be grand and awaited
by the children of the land who limp with charred feet.

judge, the jury and the executioner. [Illegible] your case in the royal
court where berries grow fruitfully. The devil’s fruit. The women that

ears for a lifetime. Acknowledging the lies that these idols tell will drive
these women to madness.
The souls that these tainted women steal shall permeate the pure blood court, leaking into the land leased by the
