Within the pages of the Necronomicon Enchanter book in Lita’s library, the curious may learn the Enchanters’ magical matters. Beware, for the knowledge might drive the reader mad with bitter desire and luscious regret. Today we read about the pleasures and dangers of essence kisses.
The original Enchanters used their bodies to transform unpalatable tree magic into essence that non-Enchanter magicians could use. They produced potent charms to distribute magical essence. But charms were not the Enchanters’ preference. The best way for an Enchanter to disperse essence was through direct contact, namely an essence kiss. Although kisses were a lovely way to share essence with intimates, the savagery of the essence mad made the kiss impractical.
In an effort to decrease the madness, the Enchanters produced new charms containing diluted essence. And they faced other problems with the Enchanters’ Magical Discipline.
The ten mages’ magical power increased many fold, but they grew weaker in other surprising areas. They also struggled to protect themselves from weather extremes and the aggressive actions of the essence mad.
Matters finally became a crisis. After an especially savage attack that maimed and nearly killed an Enchanter, the ten enclave magicians took drastic measures to protect themselves.
