Book Of Nod
The preface to this book is very cool. I know that this book is totally
fictional, and is in no way real, but the preface makes the book sound like it
was written from ancient scrolls and manuscripts that were uncovered through his
journies. The preface describes how he was able to get all of the material to
write the book. It is incredibly detailed and extreamly vague at the same time
if that is possible. With all of the history and this mans travels in the
preface, it seems like the book is written from fact and really gives the book a
nice read to it. Chapter Two: The Chronicals of Caine This is the begining of

Caine\'s adventure, this story was written in a biblical type of story line. The
diffrence from the bible and this book is that instead of focusing on the light,
it focuses on the darker side. Instead of god, this book more or less deals and
talks of the devil. Caine in this story, just as in the bible, starts off by
sacrificing his most prised possetion to god, in this case it happens to be his
brother Able. He thinks this to be a fitting sacrifice because he was told to
sacrifice that which was most dear to him. Insted of the praise that he thought
he would recieve, he was cursed by the god he loved so much. He was cursed into
the land of NOD. The land of nothing, the land of balckness. Caine, in this new
world, was completely helpless, until he came upon a woman named Lilith. Lilith
was able to help him and give him comfort. In doing so, she fell in love with

Caine. Caine, later, was vistited by the archangels of god. First was the
archangel Michel. Micheal offered himforgiveness, Caine\'s responce was "I
shall not be forgiven by god but by my own strength." With this responce

Caine was further cursed. God set onto him the curse that "For ever more
fire shall bite you and take thy flesh openly." Making him even more
effected by fire than normal mortals. The next archangel to come was Rapheal.

Again, Caine was offered forgiveness, again he refused, and again he was cursed.

God set upon him the curse "Forever more, the suns rays shall burn thee
like fire." This made him fear the light and even more embrace the
darkness. After that, The archangel Uriel came to him. Again he was offered
forgiveness, and again he refused. His curse this time was "You shall drink
only blood and eat ashes only. And you shall live forever more undead, never
dying." With this, he was cursed to live the rest of his life as, what now
is refered to as a Vampire. Lastley, he was joined again by and archangel. He
was offered forgivness, he refused, and he was cursed again. "Your children
shall bear your same curse, and in them you will plant your dark seed."

With this his entire blood line was cursed to live out his same life. Caine was
totally devistated now, cursed to the brink, he pleeded with Lilith to teach him
the ways that she lived in this void so long. She taught him her secrets,

Awakening the inner beast in him. With these new powers, Caine was able to
further his powers with his own learning and experimenting. He learned the
secrets of the darkness. With these powers he was able to leave NOD and return
back to his own world. Leaving Lilith behind in her NOD. Being new to the world
and very tired from the energy it took to get him there he needed blood to heal.

He happend upon an old cron, that was more than willing to let him feed. He fed
on her for three days, and on the third she mixed a potion that she said would
fully recover his wounds. Instead, it was a blood bind to the cron. Forever more
the cron could control Caine, and in that Caine would control anyone that drank
of his blood. He then came back to the crone, and described to her a dream that
he pretended to have about his children coming back on him and trying to kill
him, so the cron taught him how to kill a vampire, a wooden stake straight to
the heart. With this, Caine turns on the crone and shoves the wooden stake
through her heart killing her. Caine then goes back to the first
