Inspect[ | ]

As your eyes wander in the desolate landscape, a ruined canopy bed unexpectedly catches your attention. It should feel out-of-place, but strangely enough, it doesn't. Skulls decorate the top of its twisted columns, and countless bones spread from under the blood-stained, roughly mended mattress. You discern the familiar shape of a rune, cut and stitched in the worn out curtains.

When you lie down on the dirty mattress, a pungent stench fills your nostrils. How many men and women died on this bed?

Suddenly, a swarm of skeletal hands grabs every part of your body. A ghastly cold flows through your veins. Your life force is fading away.
+ Fatigue Fatigue
  • Don't resist
As your soul is being torn apart from your body, you suddenly feel at home. Unknown yet familiar faces smile at you, gathered at your bedside. An endless procession of ghostly strangers swarm around you. One after the other, they touch you, and talk to you in languages so old you don't understand a word.
  • Listen to them (Wisdom)

A startling feeling engulfs you. Now is not the time to meet your ancestors. Not yet... The spectral grip loosens. A wave of infinite sadness drags you back across countless existences, and washes you ashore.
+ Depression Depression
Success
Finally you realise who they are: the unbroken lineage of your long-forgotten ancestors, the thousands of generations who carried the sacred torch you're now bearing. Wherever you may roam, they will alywas be with you, watching from afar, waiting for you to join them. Judging your deeds in this ephemeral existence.
  • Let them judge you (Charisma)

Your time hasn't come yet, but you know you've already accomplished enough for them to be proud. You are worthy of their legacy. You know you will stay true.
