2. Spells to Create Vampires
In ancient times, a band of sorcerers used the Darkhold to conquer the entire world. For this, they created a spell that caused their dead enemies to rise again, intending to use them as their pawns. However, what they ended up creating were Vampires that quickly turned on their creators. The book also has spells to destroy such vampires. Darkhold truly is a source of great evil and misery. The users of this book themselves are not immune from its destruction, as this story shows.
3. Darkhold Spells to Open the Gate to other Dimensions
The story goes, that Carnage once went to an ancient temple in Indonesia. Guided by the book, he performed a blood sacrifice by killing his own servants and casting a spell as they died, causing a gate to open to another dimension. The temple and the surrounding area transformed into a region between our world and that of the Elder God Chthon, where the usual laws of physics do not exist. Such reality-shattering spells are what give this book its notoriety.
4. A Whole Host of Other Darkhold Spells
If these dark spells were not enough, the book contains much more evil magic. We provide a few examples: A spell that allows a werewolf to retain its human consciousness, an enchantment that increases the psychic ability of other mystic abilities, however, it does so by absorbing the mental energy of those around it.
