The Book of Mournful Night is a tome located within the innermost sanctums of the Black Library of Chaos and is kept under close guard. According to its pages, the raw hatred held by the ancient Necrontyr towards the Old Ones is said to have attracted the attention of the C'tan as a beacon. This led to the two races forming an alliance orchestrated by the Deceiver where the two did battle against the Old Ones in the War in Heaven.[1a]

A passage within the book reads: "When the Silent King saw what had been done, he knew at last the true nature of the C'tan, and of the doom they had wrought in his name."[1b]
