Firstly, I just wanted to tell you all that I have cancelled my podcast account and deleted all the links to it.

Enjoy!

Initiates are just that; men who have made the grade to enter the auspicious ranks of the Heldazzlers, but who have not yet developed any specialist skills. The main bulk of the Helldazzler's forces are filled with men like this; able and potent spell casters who can summon a tempest of devastating magics with a word.
