Done during the stream today and powered by sleep deprivation because I barely got any sleep last night because it was so hawt and some people arguing outside woke me up after I finally managed to fall asleep, gawd! Anyways, here is a bit of story to go with this:

"The clergy men and women residing in the mausoleums hidden away from public eye are dedicated to preserving all forms of events in the form of literature as well as preserving the literature of old. Indeed the mausoleums are a priced possession to the entire civilization, as they contain the majority of the history of all the known races and species. However, as the main goal of the mausoleums is to preserve all forms of literature some more dangerous tomes are also kept hidden and tucked away inside the deepest confines of the labyrinth like hallways. Very few are able to enter the chambers where these tomes are stored as they contain mere chapters that could bring forth catastrophic destruction. Some of these tomes contain chants and curses too powerful to be allowed to be seen by regular folk, the others contain records of cults and gods long lost, records which have the ability to drive clerics with not enough faith and resolve to the brink of madness and insanity, causing them to lose faith and trust in anything they know. It is true that some of these books are used to test prospective clerics before they are assigned to higher ranking duties. These tests determine whether or not they hold the faith and steadfast mind that is required. Nobody is ever put to these tests without their own consent as the failure of such test means losing ones own mind and being silently evicted far away from the monastery and any and all civilization. Some of these clerics however retain a tiny bit of their own lucidity after being evicted, praying and devoting themselves to these forsaken gods, writing dozens of unholy scrolls and tomes to their gods during their descend further into insanity, gradually losing themselves as they become vessels to the ancient gods. Yes, these accursed scrolls and tomes are then found one day and hopefully the poor fool who happens upon them is knowledgeable enough not to open a single one of them, lest they be lost into the madness like their scribe."
