The power Forbidden magic offers lures many students of
magic to their dooms. Apocalyptists delve deep into the
dark tradition, heedless of the steep price to their bodies

so nearly all apocalyptists are figures of staggering evil,
dedicated to advancing vile causes in the world. They revel
in the horrors their corruption creates.
