Lexicanum : Cypher

Published March 27, 2014 by


Description

A feeling completely alien to you sweeps through your mind like a cool breeze. When it passes you find that it left something behind. A memory not your own, or maybe a whole set of skills you never possessed before. What ever the case you must use these quickly as you can already feel them growing blurry in your mind’s eye as you were never designed to hold onto such strange concepts for long.
