Master and Apprentice
It is the strange fate of man, that even in the greatest of evils the fear of the worst continues to haunt him.
– Johann Wolfgang von Goethe
The study of the dark art of Necromancy is in and of itself a difficult task. An apprenticeship under Verata, however, is downright brutal. Rather than lead by example and guide, as many teachers do, Verata sees fit to constantly test the mettle of his apprentices. Failure is not an option.
Chapter 5 has three parts and tells the story of Belzan’s study of Necromancy at the Necromantic Order of Ascalon.
