About this mod

Instantly kills all enemies in the immediate area, but beware of its cost.

Permissions and credits
Tome of Death is an equippable, reusable tome that allows the player to kill all hostiles in the area. Consequently, a random party member will gain an injury from its use. The tome is accessible through a 'Mysterious pile of books' found in the Party Camp. 

This effectively does the same as the killallhostiles script, but with a variation that offers a drawback as an incentive to be more careful with its use. Simply put, I was tired of meaningless combat, typing in the command in the console, and wanted it to be more balanced... well, as balanced as 'kill everything instantly' could be. 

It does not trigger the 'Cheats Used' flag for the game, but I would advise against using it on anything beyond trash mobs. Creatures can sometimes die too fast and you may lose essential quest items from the missed game trigger. 

If you lose your tome through accidentally destroying it in your inventory, you can get another copy through the console. For instructions on how to enable the console, visit http://dragonage.wikia.com/wiki/Console_(Origins).

Once enabled, enter the following command into the console: runscript zz_add_tome_death

Install and Uninstall
To install, use daupdater.exe located in the bin_ship folder of your install directory.
Drag and drop the dazip file onto the interface, select it, and click Install Selected.

To disable, uncheck the box for Tome of Death in Downloadable Content from the main menu in the game. 

To uninstall, delete the folder from ..\Documents\BioWare\Dragon Age\addins\

Disabling or Uninstalling this mod will make you force load any saves that implemented it previously. However, it should not break the game.

Please let me know if this conflicts with any mods or if it does not work for you. All testing is done through my own game and is verified to work at the time of upload.
