“I am the Pontifex Gharnef. Some call me the Dark Pontifex. That is fitting. Let us dye the world with shadow!”

“So many offerings suitable for my dark altar... What? This has nothing to do with you!”

“Anyone foolish enough to threaten me will quickly learn the true terror of my dark magic...”

“You are too powerful to waste your time here. You should follow your true desires...”

“Silence! Do not draw attention to me. Not here...”

“This place smells of the blood spilled in war... The depths of its darkness are profound.”

“So long as I possess this dark power, they cannot snuff my life out!”

“Only a fool would raise a hand to strike me!”


“Let the darkness roar and the stars gleam! All will be as I will it to be...”

I am no longer human, and I steal the light away with my darkness. Yet to your enemies, you must appear like a dark ruler, too... Controlling spirits, bringing death... Heh heh heh... It seems you do not understand. You are more like me than you realize. Dark ruler <Player Name>... Dominate your foes. Bend this world to your will. Each of us may lead our own realm, according to our whims...”
