The Relict:



A embriodered blanket with this powers:

lvl 35 Speak with any one human (Lvl 15 +3 Hearing +1 Sun) allow the pseudo body to speak and understand any language

lvl 45 Radiant Mantle of the Night-Wanderer (lvl 40 +1 Sun Personal) form a pseudo body right next to the "sleeping" target (per+Awearness vs 9 to discover that something is odd with the flesh)

8 Constant Trigger & 2x day

2 Penetration 4 for Speak with any one human


One need of Hyperborean Blood and a Apollo Worshiper to actual activate this powers and for ungifted the powers only activate when on lay down under this blanket.

A Ungiftet immediatly form the pseudo body next to the blanket and the ability to speak with others of different language is also linked to this.

When the Pseudo Body get wounded a Sta+Concentration roll with the recived damage+5 as target is needed to keep the body intact.

If this Concentration roll fails the body disolves and the spirit is send back to the normal body what needs time depnding on the distance and let the user disorentatet for a vew rounds.

A Gifted user in oposit have the full control of the special Speak power and this 2 powers:

Turn to Lofty Heights (AnM 112)

Radiant Mantle of the Night-Wanderer (AnM 112)


but there wasn't a gifted user for generations so this extra powers are just part of myths in the family.

Possible Adventure: A player looking for a Apprentice learn that the Farmer Mark Tyberius have a girl that probably have the gift.

He agree to give his doughter to him/her but beg the magus to search for his wive who is gone for 2-3 days now as he cant take care of his small childs and the fields.

Mark will tell about her human shape but leave out the part how he found her.

What he dont know is that his wive is actual is a swanmaiden instead he think she was a cursed human and the curse was broken when he married her.

Maybe the day bevore she vanished he have broken his promise to never talk about that she was a swan when he first saw her.


His youngest doughter probably have Strong Feary Blood - Major Supernatural and Control Fertility - Major Supernatural and so it will be difficult to open her Gift to the Hermetic arts.


Maybe the players encounter him bevore this already as a guide for a ruin or because they want to learn why his fields earn around 50% more then similiar others.
