- For the PSP and iOS game, see Corpse Party: Book of Shadows.
The Book of Shadows is a dark, magical tome filled with instructions on how to perform various spells.
The book is crafted from human skin and animal hides, and has a skull design sewn onto the front cover. There are two scratch marks resembling two Fuþark (Futhark) runes, Ansuz and Hagalaz, on the upper left and bottom right corner of the cover respectively.
The contents of the book contain instructions on numerous spells and rituals written by witches of the olden days. Due to many Witch Hunts killing off Witches, magic was shunned. In order to ensure that all knowledge of magic was not forgotten, they created the Book of Shadows and passed it down from generation to generation.
The book eventually ended up in the possession of Yoshie Shinozaki, and remained in the hidden basement of her home long after her death, only to be found later by Ayumi Shinozaki and Naomi Nakashima.
Land of Corpses: A spell to open the door of the dead - Assumed to be the spell used by Yoshie to create the alternate dimension version of Heavenly Host Elementary School.
Raising of Corpses: A spell to resurrect the dead - A forbidden spell capable of reviving the dead, but may also curse the casters. The spell requires two casters.
Fact Loop: A spell only the former master of Heavenly Host, Sachiko can use allowing her to revert time. Even if the same fate cannot be avoided, the road taken to get there may differ.
