Legendry of Phantoms and Ghosts
A grimoire written by the legendary wizard Evard that chronicles his exploration into the realm of shadow, the dark art of Necromancy and detailing his discoveries about the nature of the divine domain of death and the deity that controls it.
“Shadow magic is not inherently evil, any more than any other source of one’s power is, it is however much easier. The one thing that shadow magic asks of a practitioner is not years of study or devotion to a divinity, all it asks is simply sacrifice. "
“To tap into the powers of shadow, you must
find that lightest part of your soul and use the fol·
lowing rites to kill it. Fear not. It is only right. That
piece simply goes ahead, in death, to that void of
great mystery beyond all mortal cares. (May the rest
of your soul never join it.) The power of shadow shall
bleed into the hollow, making you anew. A darker you
lives on , more potent than before. In a way, you have
become my kin. Think not to become my rival.
