32 Cataclysmic Amnesiac

The Six Cataclysms affected the world in many different ways. One of them, you are told, is the wholesale eradication of memories from a meaningful if not significant number of individuals. After each cataclysm, people would simply no longer remember who they were or what had transpired in their lives. Some of these victims went mad trying to piece together their pasts from what little they could remember. Others simply shrugged and moved on. You’re one of the latter; though at times you feel a strange compulsion to delve into the void to try to recover some inkling of your previous life.


  • 1D3 Pocket Gods.
  • A nagging sense of deja vu.
  • One tiny memory of your previous life: a phrase said by someone you presume mattered to you; a memory of a smell from your childhood; an unexplained phobia; or something else entirely.

The freedom that comes with having no identifiable past has left your brain something like a sponge crossed with a sieve. You may choose 5 points worth of skills, languages, or spells that you have picked up recently. However, if you ever suffer a Mighty Blow in combat, these things are shaken from your brain and you are left with only the Advanced Skills detailed above for the rest of the session. At the start of the next session you may select 5 points of skills, languages, or spells anew, though none of these may overlap with the 5 points you lost previously.
