Magic Use[edit | edit source]
The following is a quote used to describe the magic use of the Warriors of the Dark Gods :
"Among the Warriors of the Dark Gods, magic is wield ed by sorcerers, whose very name has become a by word for sinister spells. Many sorcerers are raised from birth by daemons, others are inducted into the secrets of the Veil by a patron daemon. Either way, their mind bends and reforms around the truths they are taught. What they lack in the finesse or innate understanding of other casters, is compensated by an access to raw power through the Veil itself. Such power is not without cost though, and sorcerers struggle to maintain the same morality as even their fellow Warriors."
Paths of Ascension[edit | edit source]
Main article: Paths of Ascension
Armies[edit | edit source]
Forming armies and warbands is for many Warriors of the Dark Gods a philosophical contradiction. these warriors are individuals who mostly seek glory for themselves, because glory advances them further on the Paths of Ascension. However, at the same time, failure is punished most harshly, and even death is considered a failure. Therefore the warriors often band together, to gain strength in numbers, even though this diminishes their own individual glory.
