Though now long since swallowed up by their own dark magic, their scrolls, tomes, and relics still haunt our archival vaults. This magic, created by a magocracy that once governed Marchenir is focused on fiends and conjuration. Must we turn to fiends that are more ruthless and cunning than our current enemies?

This morning the vote was in favor of opening up the archival vaults. Can we practice restraint and not bring fell creatures forth that will do to us what they did to the Celedhroth?
