- ZEYR: I'm new at this God thing, okay? This world was supposed to be a test run, to see if I could have rampant magic powers running around, to see if people would not abuse them. Mostly because I don't really know when to back off. In any case, your little stunt with the Four Alchemic Elements kinda messed things up.Delmar: So then why don't you fix this yourself? You're a God, you can do it.ZEYR: The First Rule of Godhood is that you don't interfere with someone's choices. If it had been pure accident, then yes, I'd have stepped in and prevented it. But this was a deliberate action on your part. You chose to turn Lementil into a Lich. And now you look to me to give you an easy way out? No way, man. I'll help you fix this, but you need to choose to fix it, and it has to be you that fixes it in the end.— ZEYR and Delmar, discussing the events of the first part of Necromancer Wars
Delmar and his teacher, Lementil, are studying the secrets of the Ruby Pillar, which is said to contain the Essence of Alchemy. To unlock that power, Delmar collects the four Alchemic Elemental Essences and brings them to the Pillar... to find his teacher had become a victim of the Mentor Occupational Hazard. Combining the power of the four Essences and the Ruby Pillar, he manages to reverse this... only it results in a power-hungry lich. The two of them argue over whether this is Came Back Wrong or Gone Horribly Right. Then ZEYR, God of Zeyrix and Pupil of The Almighty One decides to have a chat with Delmar...
