pur.ga.to.ry \ 1: an intermediate state after death for expiatory purification; specif : a place or state of punishment wherein according to Roman Catholic doctrine the souls of those who die in God's grace may expiate venial sins or satisfy divine justice for the temporal punishment still due to remitted mortal sin 2: a place or state of temporary punishment
As the traditional philosophies of yesteryear decline and fade, we have come more and more to put our faith in personal dogmas and beliefs. Most of us no longer share the same fears and dreams of what may lie beyond death. It is no longer our gods or religious doctrines that send us to eternal damnation. That responsibility is now ours and ours alone. Purgatory is a place created by our own minds. If we believe we are guilty, if we believe that we have sinned, then our fate is sealed. There are beings, servitors of the Qlippoths, that sense our guilt. They are the Nepharites, and their purpose is to create a place in Inferno to punish us when we pass beyond death. Our own personal hell, where the sinner will spend eternity in torment.
You may notice that there have been some rather severe...changes...around here. The Metropolis page, which is not especially noteworthy but for my cheerful short story, is the only page to have escaped unscathed. Go on. Go read the story. The happy ending is especially nice. Go on...
