What is Hell? Dare you find out? Dare you even open this book...
Publisher's blurb: "As an adventurer, you will be used to hardship. You can wade up to the neck through leech-infested swamps; you can shiver on an arctic plain, with nothing to eat but the stiff body of your companion, who was lucky enough to die first; you can struggle through seemingly endless desert, blinded by the sun and dried crisp as a mummy by the heat, while scorpions and venomous reptiles lurk in wait and vultures circle overhead. In all of these terrible straits, one thought may serve to comfort you: no matter how bad this is, it could be worse.
"There is one place where even that thought cannot bring comfort, because it is the worst place that can be found anywhere. It is a place so dreadful that its very name is a curse and good folk fear to mention it. That place is Hell.
"All too often, Hell is merely glimpsed from afar. Legends, frequently contradicting each other, tell of its many awful sights. So varied are these accounts that one might wonder whether they were describing the same place. It is a realm of endless fire, though insectoid ice devils dwell there. It is all chaos and horror, yet the devils are fundamentally lawful, or else why do they always work with contracts? The place is supposed to be inescapable, yet fiends are often to be found walking the material plane. The souls of evil people go to Hell when their body dies, yet evil ghosts are often reported, so why are they not in Hell?
"Other questions beg to be answered; for what purpose, other than sheer sadism, do the fiends torment the damned? Are all devils members of the same monolithic force? What actually happens to the soul of a person who sells his soul to the Devil and what can he expect in return?"
