The Krivbeknih is an almost unpronounceable book added to Fallout 3 in the Point Lookout add-on.

Said to possess a dark power, it used to be in the possession of the Blackhall family but was lost long ago.

Obadiah Blackhall wants you to retrieve this book from the Ritual Site in Point Lookout and return it to him, whereas Marcella wants it destroyed.

Notes

  • The Krivbeknih was mentioned to have been in the Blackhall family for a long time up until their arrival to America, where it went missing for an indeterminate amount of time up until the Swampfolk found it and the player is asked to retrieve it.
  • It seems that the book does indeed possess dark and mystical otherworldly powers because of the situation surrounding the book and the fact that a strange event happens when pressed against the Obelisk in the Dunwich Building.
  • The Krivbeknih is a quest item and as such cannot be dropped once picked up. However, by returning the book to Blackhall and subsequently killing him, the book can be looted from his corpse and dropped as a normal item. Blackhall must be killed, as the book does not appear in his inventory when the player attempts to pickpocket him.

The Krivbeknih can also be destroyed by following Marcella's instructions, (despite having ignored her warning) which have been recorded and left as a file in Marcella's tent.

Behind the scenes

The Krivbeknih is a reference to the many esoteric and arcane tomes featured in the Cthulhu mythos, written by H.P. Lovecraft, such as the Necronomicon, Book of Eibon, Pnakotic Manuscripts, etc. These artifacts play a similiar role in the mythos, often being used by evil men for sinister purposes.

Also, the Dunwich building where you go to destroy the book is a reference to Lovecrafts short story "The Dunwich Horror", and an audio tape recovered in the building contains a reference to "Alhazred", the fictional author of "Necronomicon".
