In the history of the practice of magic there have often been those who bent their powers to evil. Many a wizard has delved into the necromantic arts to garner power over death and the undead. Their crimes mar the centuries in blood, suffering, and tragedy. The sum of their sins pales in comparison, to the horrors perpetrated by the Necromancer.
The Necromancer was a master of the darkest arts of magic. By dint of power he possessed, he attracted followers of the most fearsome sort. Among his followers the most powerful, and feared, were the Acolytes of Death. These thirteen magicians were masters of the arts of necromancy and murder. They lent their power to the Necromancer's darkest and most secret rituals. Through these rituals the Necromancer bought secrets of the arts of death and magic with the blood of his victims. Those fell secrets, dreadful arts of the magic of death and souls, elevated the Necromancer and his Acolytes to new heights of power.
The Necromancer would go on to assemble a blasphemous tome of the darkest arts, which he used to instruct his followers. This book, "Whispers of Persephone", contains secrets of the dark arts that had never before been known to mortals.
Among the secrets possessed by these practitioners of the darkest arts were the secrets of ritual sacrifice. Through blood and pain, these magicians were able to enhance their power and become even more dreadful. Their path to power, paved in the suffering of their victims, drove them to commit unspeakable acts.
