The Codex Noctium is the name given to the volumes of text that purport to be copies of the 'Book of Nights,' a record ordered into creation by Prince Ulcanov of the Shattered Waters. There is no extant copy of the original record from the time of the Dark Prince and all versions are necessarily copies. Any original text from the twenty third century would be highly suspect and subject to applicable anti-chaos laws of the local jurisdiction.

Scholars accept only three as potentially free from interpolation, the Codex Noctium Impiorum, the Codex Noctium of Vilangril, and the Codex Noctium Insularum. These three texts are virtually identical in text where they run together. There are gaps in each of the three made complete by one or both of the others and none of the three is complete. The Codex Noctium of Vilangril is the most nearly complete of the three. Other copies, such as the Codex Noctium Ulcanovis in Johaulia, the Codex Cantirae Noctium, and the Codex Noctium Auritiae are deemed riddled with inventions and interpolations by most scholarship.

A harmonized version of the three accepted copies has been produced by several scholars in the past one hundred years, most notably Vadaius ennekhá Lakham Pulshav. The Pulshav version or Codex Noctium Pulshavensis is widely available at the schools for study.
