Written by sad, stay-at-home wizards with big dreams and rudimentary Photoshop skills, these poorly-assembled tomes contain magic spells of unspeakable lethality, nestled in between long passages of copyrighted characters having sex with each other! Awooooo!
— Spellbook's publicity blurb
The Spellbook Page is an item made first available in the Scream Fortress 2013 event. These items may not be equipped. A Spellbook Page's only function is to be added to either a Unfilled Fancy Spellbook or a Fancy Spellbook.
A spellbook's description counts each page added to it as one of five types: Audere, Congeriae, Gratanter, Tumidum, and Veteris. Filling the Unfilled Fancy Spellbook with any three Spellbook Pages replaces it with a Fancy Spellbook. Adding Spellbook Pages to the Fancy Spellbook has no effect other than increasing the page counters in the spellbook's description.
Spellbook Pages are available as random bonus items found when opening Halloween Packages, which are obtained by completing Holiday Halloween Contracts (also known as Merasmissions), or by performing a Halloween transmutation. One Spellbook Page, the Page of Tumidum, can only be obtained by completing the "Helltower: The Mann-tastic Four" achievement. Prior to Scream Fortress 2015, Spellbook pages could only be found in Haunted Halloween gifts.
