THE APOSTATE CLASS - Achaea Online Help

8.1.2 THE APOSTATE CLASS

In days long past, the armies of Evil plotted to open a rift to the daemon
planes through the torture and sacrifice of a holy guardian angel. However,
the angel was resurrected and the rift closed, but not before a daemon
general by the name of Morimbuul had come through the aperture. The daemon
general, enraged at his entrapment on the prime material plane, threatened
to destroy all around him. His summoner, a man named Xerimor, was able to
subdue him, and much to the daemon general's fury, forced Morimbuul to
instruct him in the daemonic arts. And thus was the class of Apostates born.

Apostates are diabolical scholars and ritualists in the service of Evil.
These black priests spread the teachings of the Gods of Evil throughout the
realm, and they also act as the spiritual pulse of Mhaldor, the city of
evil. Because of their devotion to Evil, they are rarely welcome in other 
cities. 

Through the skill of Apostasy, Apostates harness the power of the
daemonic realms. They may summon and command daemonic entities to do their
bidding, including living daemonic daeggers, bloodworms, nightmares, and
most importantly, the powerful baalzadeens. Their training in the dreadful
art of Necromancy grants them powers based upon draining life essence from
the hearts of mortals and using it for various spells, including even the
secret of guarding one's soul from death itself. These skills are
supplemented by the skill of Evileye, which allows Apostates to cause a
great number of terrible afflictions upon their enemies.

The skills wielded by those of Apostate class are Apostasy, Necromancy,
and Evileye. A fledgling in this class will possess Evileye and Necromancy,
gaining Apostasy upon embracing class.

** Please be advised that this class comes with restrictions on your
actions. The skills of Apostates are fuelled by daemonic and evil forces; if
you choose this class but act against such forces, you may find that your 
ability to use such skills has been revoked.
