The Veil of the Golden Pass Item in Fyria | World Anvil

The Veil of the Golden Pass

He knew from the moment he laid eyes upon it that he was going to steal it, it had to be his, it called to him, begged him to claim it. Now, resting on a tall dais in front of him, he reached out, the sound of guard reinforcements closing in behind him. His fingers closed around the delicate golden mask. And then a flash, thousands of memories of past possessors of the veil surging through his mind impossible to comprehend. Then a vision of a woman, as real as if it were truly in front of him, standing, working at a forge, hammering down on folds of cooling steel. She slowly stops, lowering her hammer and turns towards him, she smiles, quiet and strong, and says, "It's time, bring me back my Veil."   Then in an instant, he is back to his senses, The Veil of the Golden Pass gripped tightly in his fingers. "Come on! It's time to go Knox!" screamed Valdir fending off an approaching guard. "Shit, yeah let's get the hell out of here," Knox replied, snapping back to attention. "Less chit chat boys!" Lacey yelled beckoning towards the secret tunnel they had used to break into the museum. The crew sprinted down the long forgotten hall and back onto the alleyways of Roseport, disappearing into the darkness of night.
