Writings of a Cultist – Page 1
"The news reached us that Adria had been killed by the nephalem. Maybe she's reunited with Maghda, somewhere … There are still a few of us who remember the power they once had. .. and their promises. "
A Cultist's Writings – Page 2
"One thing is certain for me: whatever Maghda has left is ours alone. It is imperative that we secure her property before anyone else can attack it. As soon as the Nephalem is gone, we will act."
Writings of a Cultist – page 3
"It took some time, but we combed every corner of the blood marches and found almost everything we knew existed, with the exception of Adria's diaries. Perhaps it is better that her innermost thoughts remain a mystery to us."
Writings of a Cultist – page 4
"There are many things in Adria's runes and magic books that I don't understand, even though I spent a long time brooding over every single page. I wasn't aware of how much her magical knowledge exceeded mine. It won't be an easy task."
Writings of a Cultist – page 5
"After hours and hours of studying, I was tired of the senseless frustration and threw Adria's books aside. When I sat cursing, I suddenly heard a soft whisper that came from the shadows … Something had felt my suffering and answered."
Writings of a Cultist – page 6
"I begged the voices from the shadows to look into Adria's memories. If I can learn from their example, I may be able to find a way for those of us who have stayed true to the cause. The Nephalem has our plans destroyed, but hope is not yet lost … "
