“Cuando lo oscuridad se desliza y se traga la luz, entierra tus miedos e nla Noche de los Lamentos porque, en la shoras más negras del invierno los Voradores celebran su festín. Nadie podrá ver la vida que robarón; tu cuerpo sigue aquí, pero tu alma ya no..."

"Merodean en el frío y la oscuridad
Hambrientos y traviesos
Esperan su oportunidad para devorar
a los débiles en la Nochde los Lamentos
Es entonces cuando los voradores emprenden su festín con los miedos.
Tus miedos. Y roban tu alma,
Pero tu cuerpo permanece...y nadie nota la diferencia"

"Los Voradores nos rodean
Usan nuestros nombres y caras, pero no son nosotros.
Lo más peligroso es cuando nos dicen: "No hay nada de que asustarse..." En realidad, es mucho lo que viene por temer"

"Una vez que se ha ido, no hay regreso.
Una vez dentro, no hay salida.
En lo oscuro permanecerá, perdido por siempre, entre el miedo y la duda"

"Su miedo te ha devorado, él se quedará aquí para siempre”
