You may be in the dark about what's really dark and evil, but you're not ignorant. You've got a library of information at your fingertips - including an uncut copy of the Necronomicon (if you don't value your sanity, of course).

In the meantime, brush up on your forbidden knowledge and go for the post-graduate course!
Well, only if you're through with life.
