Quotes

Only fools claim to understand Chaos, for by definition, Chaos is inhuman and incomprehensible. Mortal sages and mystics who dare ponder its nature are driven mad, or else succeed only in attracting the attentions of its fell creatures. Many a wise scholar has been carried alive and screaming to the charnal houses of the Realm of Chaos, there to writhe in eternal debate with the Daemons of torment.

~ Grand Theogonist Siebold II. [5a]
