The Necronomicon, "The Law of the Dead" When the infamous book of necromancy and god-summoning fell into the hands of the mad wizard Alhazred, the clock of destruction marched forward, and the wrath of malevolent deities smote the Otherworld. On the eve of calamity, salvation fell into the responsibility of the Earthlings, who were overjoyed to help at the promise of magic and power. ________________ Why hadn't he been chosen? Unlike the Returnees, who fled the Otherworld with their tails behind their legs, afraid of the slightest danger, Unlike those cowards, David would never escape danger. He would perform his duties to the bone and call it a day only when his time to die came. But he hadn't been chosen.
