“I am not a gamer, per se. But, I love Diablo the way one loves a strong, reliable friend.
In the fall of 2006, I met a man who would introduce me to the Diablo universe, only to control how I was able to play it, when I was able to play it, and criticize me for not playing it the way he would play it. So, when I finally left him over two years later, I brought my game with me, determined to slay my own demons my way.
Since then, I not only found great enjoyment, but a part of myself that I thought had been taken from me forever.
The Necromancer has always been my favorite.” – To Death With Love, page from Within the Hallows of Sanctuary
Dangerous, wise, spiritual, and “sapiosexy,” The Necromancer from the Diablo game series is one of the best characters ever developed in fiction. If Metal had a mascot, he would be far more befitting than Baphomet, as in his way, he encompasses all genres. How could I not be inspired?
So, as a stress release, I created this blog, Within the Hallows of Sanctuary to pay homage to the game, the character, and the creators.
