In the dark and mysterious realm of Gehenna lies a haunting place known only to the most daring and foolhardy as the Circle of Greed. The mere mention of its name is enough to send shivers down the spine of any who have heard of its diabolical traps and mind-bending passageways.
There are many ways to find yourself within the Circle of Greed, entrances that beckon and entice those driven by a lust for power and wealth. But be warned: once entered, almost none ever escape. Such is the unyielding, insatiable greed of its lord and master, Mytaxx, the Golden Miser.
A Vast Labyrinth of Horror
Mytaxx’s dominion is no ordinary realm. It is a place of living nightmares, where twisting and turning passageways shift and move like serpents, leading wanderers further into a maze from which escape is almost impossible. Hidden within its labyrinthine corridors, diabolical traps lie in wait, eager to snatch and maim the unwary, leaving them forever scarred and broken.
The whispers of those who have dared to enter tell of walls that close in, of floors that give way to abysses, and of illusions so real they can drive a man to madness.
Mytaxx, the Golden Miser: A Legend Unfolds
Legend holds that Mytaxx was once a mere mortal, a man consumed by avarice who bought himself rulership of the Circle of Greed. Whether this tale is true or not, the undeniable fact remains that the daemons of his circle hoard all manner of wealth — gold, gems, knowledge, magic, and power.
Few have ever laid eyes on Mytaxx. Hidden away in his chambers, he fears that all covet the treasures he has accumulated. Mytaxx seeks to own everything there is, driven by a madness that knows no bounds. He would take the stars themselves if he could, but he is kept occupied by his obsessive hoarding of that which he already holds.
Paranoid, greedy, and obsessed with the wonders he has claimed so far, his eyes are ever outward, gleaming with a lust to snatch whatever he can to add to his impossible fortune. A fortune that, some say, has cursed him to an eternity of discontent and longing.
Portals to Madness
The Circle of Greed’s insidious reach extends even to the Material Plane. Many portals exist, hidden in shadows and forgotten corners of our world, through which the daemons venture to grow their own treasures and those of their master. Mortals who delve too deeply in search of plunder might stumble into Gehenna and, once there, find themselves trapped in a nightmare they cannot awake from.
Mytaxx lures mortals into his dominion with promises of knowledge, wealth, and other assets, adding them to his treasures as he does anything else he covets. It is said that his collection includes the souls of those who dared to seek his riches, forever trapped and tormented in his unending labyrinth.
The Circle of Greed is a place of horror, a testament to the dark depths to which greed can lead. The story of Mytaxx, the Golden Miser, serves as a grim reminder that some treasures are best left undiscovered, and that the pursuit of wealth and power can lead to a fate worse than death.
Enter the Circle of Greed if you dare, but remember: once entered, almost none ever escape. The terrifying legacy of Mytaxx awaits, hidden in the shadows, eager to claim those who would dare to seek his impossible fortune.
