  Hinged upon the stars, you hung your spell to make use of long term patterns.  In a basement of the machine works sector of an ancient city your coffin lay hidden in the open.  The boilers were built long ago, then forgotten, since they now took care of themselves.  Illusion made your abode appear like another mechanical device of unknown purpose scattered amongst the rest.  Only those with magic sight could tell it was different.  But even then, the weaker of it would see it as a warded illusion, containing danger that could be unleashed.  Normally this would be cause to alarm; to find a secret object marked with a potential that was not well known and guarded by any sort of priestly shield.  However, upon leaving the area, all would forget to pass on the warning.  Only a few could see it and know it for what it truly was, and these are your myn, and they would leave it out of respect.  But your spell was reaching it's end, a century having passed and the stars stretching the last cobwebs of the spell from it's framework.  When the final three came apart, you awoke with rejuvenation.

  The coffin opens into the dark, the soft clink of the hinges stopping is barely noticeable above the permanent humming of the mazes of piping and panels that make up the walls of the room.  You look about quickly, to see if there is anyone who could notice your emergence.  Except for some cobwebs in different corners, the room looks identical to when you went to sleep.  You step out of the coffin, then tug on the handle of its floor.  The sealed compartment containing your equipment opens up.  You don your (insert article of clothing), strap on your backpack and then close both cavities.  Your coffin now appears as another nameless piece of machinery. 'That should be hidden enough for now' you think, and then the automatic lock clinks shut.

 

It is time to move, where will you go? (3)

  • The old safehouse for vampire kin
  • A library to seek someone who is knowledgable and impartial
  • A previous hunting ground
  • Other
