Question about past lives

Postby Rhu on October 28th, 2015, 12:49 pm

I've noticed that some people's characters have past lives, and am a little confused about what that means. Could someone please explain to me the following:

1. How does a person get a past life for their character (I'm assuming I'd need to apply for it at the help desk?)
2. How does a character discover their past lives - if they ever can.
3. How does a past life effect the character, if at all. I mean, can you get lore from doing past life flashbacks (assuming you can do past life flashbacks, that is), or something?

Many thanks in advance. :-)

1. No I think you can just make one up.
2. I want to say it is tied to dreaming but I don't think it's meant to be easy to discover a past life.
3. I don't think it does it just fleshes out a history before their history if you will.

I'm sorry I'm no expert on this, in fact I think the best answers will come from someone like Goss. If anyone else has any information, please add, I'm very interested to know also!

Question about past lives

All I know about pastlives is that there are some gnosis to help you discover it (I think one of them is dreamwalking) and there is also a lost discipline of magic called Reminiscence being worked on by Gillar that ties into the discovery of past lives. A very skilled Hypnotist (I think master level) may be able to draw out some details of a pastlife as well via Trance.

Here is some info from a quick search >.> from Gillar. I know there is MORE information about the lost discipline out there, I just dont have the time right now to find it >.>'
“Method is more important than strength, when you wish to control your enemies. By dropping golden beads near a snake, a crow once managed to have a passer-by kill the snake for the beads.” ~ Henry Wadsworth Longfellow
