"A page that was ripped from an ancient tome. It is written in unearthly, alien letters, but for some reason you know you can read it."
The tome pages are parts of ancient spellbooks of some sorts. While written in an unknown tongue, they are still clear for the expedition's scientist to read, for some mystical reason. Reading them causes miraclous changes to the world around, but wastes the pages in the process.
They serve, essentially, as a one-use spell scrolls, allowing players to benefit from the ancient powers written upon them. Each page can be used once.
