Adepts of the Blood Path Little is known about this cult of evil, magic-using creatures, the few facts coming from the priests of the God of Knowledge. They teach that the Adepts believe that a creature's life force is in its blood and that, by the proper sacrifical rituals, the force may be stolen and used by another. No group within the realms is as evil or ruthless as the Adepts of the Blood Path. Many who seek knowledge of their evil ways, looking to be initiated into their number, find themselves in the midst of a dark rite of sacrifice, not as supplicant but as the sacrifice itself. The Adepts have faded into extinction.
