2.2 – Baal-Zebub (Book II, Ch2)

Location: Nektar’s Cauldron Timeline:  AO 226 Some time later – who can say how long? – I recovered from my nightmare, and as I leaned against the cold stones of the passageway, I thought not of my craving for new souls, but instead forced myself to remember that which I most wished to forget –Continue reading “2.2 – Baal-Zebub (Book II, Ch2)”

000 – Death is your Guide (Series Intro)

This much I know — Time does NOT heal all wounds. At least not for me — for I am Azazel and I am a charlatan. Perhaps it might be more correct to state that I am THE Charlatan — for it has become painfully clear that my whole life (if you can call itContinue reading “000 – Death is your Guide (Series Intro)”

1.7 – Forward the Foundation (Book1, Ch7)

Baal-Zebub just couldn’t leave well enough alone (1). The Dark Prince’s hopes got so high that he either didn’t trust me to complete the job on my own or else wanted to give me extra support to complete my work faster, so eventually the Lord of Illusia started sending more of my colleagues to Terra.Continue reading “1.7 – Forward the Foundation (Book1, Ch7)”

1.5 – The Offspring (Book1, Ch5)

Lucifer’s treatment caused Eve great pains – both physically and mentally. Suffering immensely, Eve had wandered off alone and waited for death to find her. It would have – if not for my intervention. But I had other plans for the woman and as a result I secretly nursed Eve back to health — appearingContinue reading “1.5 – The Offspring (Book1, Ch5)”

1.2 – The Morning Star (Book1, Ch2)

“Life?” Lucifer continued stalling – unsure how to proceed. I knew I took a risk to even proffer such an idea, since I didn’t know if Zebub’s son was even capable of it. More importantly I also knew that if Lucifer sensed he might fail, he would surely take out his wrath upon me forContinue reading “1.2 – The Morning Star (Book1, Ch2)”

2.1 – Seek Ye The Light! (Book II, Ch1)

Location: Nektar’s Cauldron Timeline:  AO 225 (1) Seek Ye The Light! Escape these torments in The Light! These were the sole thoughts which drove me inexorably onward – through the oppressive darkness and up The Stairway of Infinity. Daemons clutched at my robes, seeking to pull me off the dizzying Stairway and send me careeningContinue reading “2.1 – Seek Ye The Light! (Book II, Ch1)”

1.6 – The Baals (Book1, Ch6)

With Lucifer now locked in Illusia with his father Zebub, the rest of his fallen lumenarcs took little interest in the goings on occurring of your planet (1). While I was focused on molding Kane to my designs, Adam and Eve eventually overcame their remorse and had other children. They were careful to offer specialContinue reading “1.6 – The Baals (Book1, Ch6)”

1.4 – The Garden (Book1, Ch4)

Fresh off my creation of Eve, I didn’t want to risk the God El wandering off again so before the man and his mate could even produce any offspring I wondered aloud. “Perhaps Adam and his new mate should have a special place of their own to live within? Maybe that will ensure their success inContinue reading “1.4 – The Garden (Book1, Ch4)”

1.3 – Behold Man…and more? (Book1, Ch3)

[You think you know how Man was created? Think again. Here is the real story…] “Mankind?” The God once known as Lucifer but now calling himself El was confused by my proposal. “Dost thou not want to rule Illyria…with your father Zebub?” I whispered, knowing I was walking a dangerous line, and to keep myContinue reading “1.3 – Behold Man…and more? (Book1, Ch3)”

1.1 – Genesis Revisited (Book1, Ch1)

Before The Beginning, there was Nothing…and It was Everything. The Nothing was filled by a single awareness – and although your minds could never hope to fathom the boundlessness of this entity let us call it All — or if you prefer God. And so it was for time uncounted – until a Something, within the Awareness,Continue reading “1.1 – Genesis Revisited (Book1, Ch1)”
