--> First are the pits. My army of the undead, penned and waiting for command. They are unchained, unmastered, and without my totem, they will tear us apart.\\
Should we manage to pass through their lair, we will come to a room of eyes, which will see through every aspect of your mind, every little self-deception. You will hear whispers, whispers of your true self that will shatter your identity.\\
Then you come to the room of fire. A cleansing fire that erases your mind, so that you may never find the handle that may lead to your escape. There are ''things'' in the fire you would never want to find you, but they will.\\
Beyond that is the room of spirits. The souls of those I've rendered lifeless, screaming in agony, ready to teat the spirit out of your body.\\
Then you find yourself in the humans pens. The few who have even made it through the gates emerge soulless, lifeless, and I then sell them to the highest bidder. This is the most guarded room in all of Midnight, and the antechamber to my personal quarters.\\
And then, of course, I have a very sophisticated electronic alarm system on my loft.
