Myre

The Drowned Return

I saw him from a distance, i thought it was some full going for a swim... but his skin was so pale, and his eyes they weren't right. I ran then, because i knew. The corpse men had come...
The world of Hune is damaged. The death of gods has done more then physically distort the land. Something has tattered within the great tapestry of reality itself. The dead and their spirts may not find so easy a rest as they once had. A Myre is a symptom of such titanic shifts in the natural order. They are reborn mortals, set adrift to wash up upon the shores of Vierda, or by lakes or even small ponds. Whatever there connection is to the our world these reincarnated individuals seemed to tethered to bodies of water.   The Myre while unusual in appearance are not in fact undead. What can best be understood by the druids is that they are spirts given physical form once more. deprived of their natural course, to reach the fairer realms like most mortal souls. They instead wake in new bodies strange parodies of their former selves with but fragments of who they might have been. What all Myre do share is death. These cursed folk remember their first death in great detail, and what they say followed after, They talk of a place beyond the black, a shadowed hall, a labyrinth and a lake of stars that stare back at you. What purpose these people have and what their arrival means to realm remains to be seen. Are they our saviors? our ancestors come back from the dark to bring us hope in this heathen age? or are they yet another symbol of our failure and a herald of more ill omens to come?

Faded Memories

Rather than sleeping, reborn regularly sit and dwell on the past, hoping for some revelation of what came before. Most of the time, these are dark, silent stretches. Occasionally, though, in a moment of peace, stress, or excitement, a reborn gains a glimpse of what came before. When you desire to have such a dreamlike vision, roll on the Lost Memories table to inspire its details.
