GURPS: The Town
“A person starts dying when they stop dreaming - it is time to awaken from this."
Only one who walks through the Mists can recognize brionglóid – yet the people of this town are stuck within it all the same.
Trapped within a dream they can not escape – a dream that ignores old laws and custom. Man is meant to die – how can we know spring if there is no winter? Yet here, in this domain, man lives on and even when death strikes – it moves on without finishing the job. Watching old men live on and on, observing the same tired boring moment of “death” replayed in a spectral loop, and suffering the dead to walk – snubbing death of its due. I have come to make amends – to see the old oaths obeyed and those who would break them laid low.
So I have come through the mists like any other – but with purpose and direction. With vision and insight. My opponent is crafty and cunning, yet in the end every dream must cease and Cailleach must receive her due.
