Every soul, every heartbeat, every fleeting thought is like a delicate note in the symphony of existence. But oh, there is one sensation, one exquisite pleasure that eclipses all others: the corruption of a pure soul.* >*Can you imagine? That moment when innocence fractures, when a soul’s core becomes tainted with the intoxicating taste of sin? That delectable descent into the dark? Many view me as a creature of sheer malevolence, but they fail to understand. It’s not about the pain, the torment, or the eternal damnation. It’s about the seduction. The transformation.*" >—Asmodeus ## Gameplay For gameplay dates and times, visit [[Schedule]] for more information. ## Area Map ![[D&D 5E Forgotten Realms/_assets/maps/map-area-candlekeeep.jpg]] [to enlarge: zoom window or open image in new tab]
