Mystical Experiences



d6 Mystical Experiences
1 I realize now that I am but a lens through which the Beyond-Gods see.
2 I see now that nobody is truly unique; everyone is made up of the parts that make me, just in a different order.
3 I’ve seen the fabled Words of Creation, a vision of three great tomes beyond the heavens.
4 During meditation, danger, or a drug-induced hallucination, time slowed to a standstill and I could hear the Beyond-Gods playing dice with my life.
5 I looked up and saw a giant—a Beyond-God!—guiding me, like a great angel playing chess.
6 In dreams, I’ve walked with the gods among the planes and futures-past. Turns out, the gods are also but characters in a greater story.


d6 Bond
1 When I care about someone, I invite them to meditate, exercise, or drink tea.
2 I believe in the doctrine of Epitheos Monastery, but their practices conflict with those of my homeland.
3 My connection to my Beyond-God is strong… But I dare not explain so to others for fear they may think me insane.
4 To procure other mystical experiences, I’ve obtained contacts who deal in rare poisons and decadent intoxicants.
5 Instructor Seylah took me under-wing from our first meeting. I idolize her sense of perfection.
6 As a child, Dreamdrop visited me in a vision and safely guided me to the Monastery.
