Izek went to great lengths to acquire the knowledge of a particular curse from the Vistani, known as the Curse of the Love Doll. His intention is to use it on Ireena and make her his devoted and faithful love. However, to do so, Izek must obtain a doll that looks like Ireena, treat it with the Philter of Love potion, and then give it to her while reciting a specific poem. The poem, which Izek has memorized, is written on a note that can be found in his room. If a character succeeds in a DC 15 Arcana Check, they will recognize the poem as being related to a spell or curse, but they will need further investigation to understand its exact purpose. Izek is currently pestering Anya to make the Philter of Love potion for him as he only needs this component to complete the curse. -------------------------------- The ritual poem is a real-world poem by French poet Charles Baudelaire (1821–1867) from Les Fleurs du Mal. The original French version reads as follows: Si le viol, le poison, le poignard, l’incendie, N’ont pas encore brodé de leurs plaisants dessins Le canevas banal de nos piteux destins, C’est que notre âme, hélas ! n’est pas assez hardie.
