MEMORIAM

Travelling through the Otherworld can and always has been dangerous. In certain places, dark energy converges and feeds off of any weary travelers’ anxieties to form what is known to many as Memoriam. Here, your worst memory will be made reality once more. Without thinking, it will tug in anyone with enough pain still lingering and generate the event detail for detail. Whether it has taken place in Pandora or otherwise, be cautious, for any wounds sustained within Memoriam will follow you to the next.​



LIMITATIONS

As the location itself tends to typically simply be a fixed center of dark energy, it is impossible to avoid once you've reached it's specified territory. The only way to avoid being pulled into the nightmare, as some have experimented with, is to have enough Prometheus dust on your person to hold it off long enough to escape the reaches of it's territory. None of this territory has been specifically marked in any way, and any who have tried to do so have typically found themselves in more trouble than it was ever worth.

For those versed in mental shields and magic to strengthen such wards, if strong enough, the energy will be unable to pull personal memories and instead produce something organically and usually just as horrifying. With the land itself not as personal, it leaves more time for exploration and scientific discovery.

THE AMALGAMATION

If multiple people find themselves together when pulled into Memoriam, the nightmare shifts. Instead of being an exact recreation, it forms into a combined effort of both participants' worst memories. All detail is still uncannily exact, just no longer about one but two memories. Both people will be able to see the combined effects.

HOW TO ESCAPE

The illusion cast over one's mind entirely embodies the person into the memory itself. It's as if Pandora sent the person home, placing them right back into the lowest and most painful point in their life. Or, alternatively: if the memory took place within Pandora, it simply morphs the environment to reflect it while bringing in the psychological effects and negative reactions as well. Any memories made since the painful recounting are still intact, but fade into background noise. Through the static, it's distant and out of reach.

To break the illusion and find a way out of Memoriam, it requires positive energy. The good memories that have any number of chances to outweigh the bad must be at the forefront of one's mind. It will break the anxiety and allow for one to focus and remember that this is merely temporary. If not for the positive memories, getting out will take much more time. Deep breaths are required as well, and highly recommended.

THE QUICK AND THE DEAD

Wounds that are reopened by the memories or any other means within Memoriam do not disappear outside of the Otherworld. They will need to be healed as soon as possible once safely away from Memoriam's clutches. If someone were to fall victim to Memoriam and be unable to escape or suffer far too many wounds to feasibly survive, death will act as swiftly and permanently as it would anywhere else. The body will be simply released out into the Otherworld, floating between realms until eventually disappearing.

Well, well, well. Look what the cat metaphorical and/or literal god dragged in.
Went to school for 14 years just to never use 80% of of what they taught me. Crazy.
