Lethal Reword 5: True Mirage It was subtle, at first. Back when you could step into another world and not even notice it. Distracted by the world, you pass right on through, and back... with maybe a shiver, or the feeling of something being off. When alone at home, you see a black, humanoid figure creeping in your peripheral vision... when, just as soon as you see it, it's gone. At night, you lie awake - hearing sounds that a home could not possibly make. For a few moments, the wind whispers names. The streams laugh, and the trees grumble at the cruelty of mankind. Then it's gone. It was just your imagination, so you go back to your normal, daily life. That is... until things start vanishing. Structures, people, trees... and no one but you seems to remember that it was once there. Colors, as well... a field of grass suddenly becoming the tones of a black-and-white movie... and no one else seems to notice. Certain areas of the world begin to have lessened gravity, making those who walk there seem to float - like being underwater. Still, no one makes any comment about it but you... like it's always been that way. It all begins to shift and alter like a dream. Then, after a night of restless sleep, you wake up... alone. The world is silent. No one there but you... as buildings fade into nonexistence. Streets crumble and fade... storms start, tearing up pieces of the world in a torrent of anti-creation. Then... slowly, surely - you painlessly fade into nothing. ...You wake up on the shores of a lake, next to a group of people that seem... vaguely familiar. You remember who you were. Where you came from. All that's left to ask is... who... what... are you now? ---------------- Version: D&D 3.5 Starting Level: 3 Point Buy: 32 Starting Gold: 2,500 Books Allowed: All Wizards of the Coast books.
