Lady Amora'lei

Song resonated tenuously throughout the thick of the dense, atramentous woods. Moonlight merely trickled betwixt the rime-covered leaves and twisting, branches of trees, her silvery rays oscillating, occasionally painting the stones in white that reflected against the snow enveloping the ground. How ethereal the haunting ambience was for a lullaby to be spilled this night; a faint chime echoing, carried by honeyed and velvete

The Veiled Prophet
The Sanctum was dark, and stretched thin by loss. The passing of its long-rotted reflection had brought with it a change, insidious and unavoidable. A hint of new shades in the amber light it breathed and the prickling of the air in its body. The loss of a twin was wont to cause such things. Its Prophet was not immune to this. Indeed, as the mortal agent, the earthly personification of a dreaming-god, he was perhaps more vulnerable to the shifts

The Veiled Prophet
(This is the last big blog post about the Sermons, I swear)


Introduction

Here’s a little guide I’ve put together for those of you who either don’t feel like delving too deep into the Sermons, want to make sure you didn’t miss anything, or would otherwise like to have your character pick up IC on things that you haven’t found OOC. Underneath each p

The Veiled Prophet
The place that exists between absolutes is at once devoid of decision and cobbled together from their results, and is thus thin and piled high. Raising the Sanctum from this place was a feat not of mundane means but of the twisting and tearing of the very underpinnings of all things. Of creation and dreams and words and concepts. The place itself, then, must be understood as at once a place and yet more; the very first dream given form and fire b

The Veiled Prophet

In the days before the Sanctum, a child was born of two, one awake and one asleep, for Sleep and Wakefulness were yet separate and distinct. The words of the Prophet began with this phrase, for it would always hold true. Within the Vespertine Sanctum these words were made manifest, for to traverse the path at the edge of all things required a map. The first steps upon the Seeking path were the most painful, after all, for the

The Seekers stood arrayed within the Temple where the child had seized hypnagogia from the grasp of unconsciousness and asked in one voice:


‘Child, what does it mean to walk between Sleep and Wakefulness?’


And the child raised his hands, a moth-eaten candle burning in the right and the reflection of hidden constellations upon still

The Veiled Prophet
Long after rising from the marsh, the child came to rest once more beneath those brackish waters. Wanderers came to that amber-lit place and knelt before its great altar, saying:


‘We have traveled far without knowing why. Somnolence has bid our feet to movement, and so we have come to this place amid our slumber. Teach us, so that we might trace paths of our own across this world.’

The Veiled Prophet
At the beginning Sleep and Wakefulness were yet separate and distinct. The end of all things will see them separate once again, and will be defined by this fracturing. End and beginning thus must be twins reflected and merged, holy chirality given form by Sleep and Wakefulness. The mirror, who knows this secret of One-Yet-More, is the Sanctum. Seeker, you tread upon a path cut from the surface of this mirror, and are reflected in kind. Will and c

A Retelling of Sermon I As Told By a Revered and Heretical Cultist


As all things must crumble, die, and fall into the great abyss which is obscurity, so too must the Sanctum, which is so coddled by its golden keeper. Nothing is eternal, much less Concept and Idea which have ever been the foundation of the great temple at the edge. Stasis has never been but a moment give

The Veiled Prophet
In a moment of sentimentality, the child sunk to the bottom of the sea as he had once sunk into the marsh. It was there that he met a creature which lay dreaming and forgotten. The child took this being in his hands and saw it from every side, revealing its true nature. Releasing the frail creature from his grasp, the child walked alongside it as the current swept it away, saying:


‘Lord of D
