Special Note:

Although this book deals with diabolical subject matter, it is not in any way intended as an incentive for devil worship. Quite the opposite. But since certain people require that things be spelled out in big, bold letters, we felt we should emphasize a few simple points: Black magick is not cool, merely stupid.

Do not worship Satan.

Do not kill anyone or anything.

Do not kill yourself.

Mage is a game.

Have fun.

Thank you.

Sleep tight....

Author's Dedication:

I offer thanks to many for the completion of this book, but a few people really stand out: Wendy Blacksin, for putting up with the demons in my head.

Audrey Maddox, for playing angel when my old computer went heavenward.

Jess Heinig, for being our computer tech, and for packing my brain with Buddhism.

Chris Early, Sam Inabinet, Jim Moore and Michael Lee, for ideas and inspiration.

Rich Dansky, for reviewing my references to Judaism.

Rachelle Udell, for checking the Latin.

...And Mike Tinney, for making sure the Crusade continues.

Thanks, folks!

From the White Wolf catalog:

The Path of Screams is the ultimate descent — a rebellion against all that is holy and right. Those who choose to Fall perform blasphemous rites, master horrifying magicks, and sell their very souls to demonic tempters.
This is their story: A dark collection of cults, characters, motivations and night-black Arts. An enlightenment of the damned.
