My fellow warlocks and witches,
I come to you today as a concerned member of the Dark Art Society (DAS). Over the past two and half years, I have had the wonderful opportunity to work and murder with the best of you and every soul-syphoning experience will be cherished forever. But throughout the entire process of learning the craft of death, I have been troubled by a subculture that runs counter to the very foundation of witchery.
There are those among us who would overthrow our traditions, those who would abandon all we hold dear, and run like cowards into the arms of others seeking succor. I tell you all that we must not allow it. Who are these traitors? These traitors are none other than those scandalous warlocks who call themselves destruction.
Warlock-kind has one thing in common: we cherish wreaking havoc by harnessing dark and fel energies, demons, and curses in order to drive our enemies mad as we slowly drain the very life from their veins. These destruction witches believe in no such thing.
Those who call themselves destruction hardly use the gifts that hover all around them. Instead of ripping the life out of their foes, they merely burn their enemies to crisps. Instead of cursing their enemies three ways to the twisting nether and waiting for sweet oblivion to engulf the victim, they continue to cause flames to burst forth from the sky. This, my friends, is wrong.
If, as a young child, I had been interested in burning small woodland creatures into blackened husks, I would have gone with my dear friend Sethra into the Magery. However, I was stronger than that. I was not content in merely destroying things. I wanted to destroy things with style and class.
I am reaching out to you today so that you do not have to endure the tragedy of watching a loved one fall into the blackness that is being a mage. If you suspect that any of your warlock or witch friends are succumbing to the weakness that is mage, please contact the DAS Special Committee on Anti-Magecraft. Some warning signs include:
– Tendency toward using elemental energies when fel energy would be 10x more potent
– Unusual friendliness toward mages
– Unwillingness to drain the soul of a helpless creature
– Inability to keep control of a demon slave
If you see any of these signs, contact the DAS immediately. A treatment unit will be dispatched right away to help reeducate and counsel the wayward warlock or witch.
Don’t let magery happen to your loved ones.
Darkest of Death to you all,
