    Mantle - Chilling breeze, summoning tiny leaves
    Mantle and Mein

    Mein: Rhodes has pale whitish skin, elfin ears and deep emerald eyes. Thin black veins broach the surface of his skin like the roots of a tree emerging from the ground. Dark, broad leaves sprout from his wrists, ankles and temples, spreading around the back of his head. Deep red flowers bloom at the temples and wrists.

    Mantle: A breath of icy wind, the kind that penetrates and sends a chill down the spine. Ash leaves in red, yellow and gold spin into existance around him, caught on the breeze
    Rhodes

    Pale skin, angular features, pointed ears. His jet-black hair burst into bright red flowers and fine dark leaves about his ears forming a wreath of firey foliage that trailed just below his shoulders. Thin woody vines broached and twined across his milky-white skin, with leaves and budding flowers breaking into bloom at his cuffs.

    Hedgespun coat of darkest thunderclouds, broiling and writhing, occasionally flashing as if lighting was happening on the other side.

    For many weeks, the Dread Lord of Autumn had been preparing to reach into the Skein. Into the collective consciousness. Into the total cumulative experience of every human being. Whether staying with Seraphina or in his Hollow, Rhodes had spent time before sleeping meditating, preparing his mind to become a vessel for the knowledge held within the thoughts that made up the skein.

    He had crossed the skein before. It was a dangerous and risky process - selecting a target to cross the skein with the methods of the Oneiroscope did not make it any less risky. But this time, he was going to steal a piece of that collective memory.

    Mind calmed, peaceful, the Flowering slipped into bed, and drifted into a deep sleep.

    The Flowering walked through the Library in robes of silken Autumn leaves. Opening the vast doors at the end, he stepped out into the boundless starry void. Twisting paths of red, black and gold wove an infinitely stretching web across the floor. He walks along the path, slipping through a pitch-black tear in reality to the dream to the slow moving mind....

    Rhodes' eyes snap open into the morning light.

    Slowly, he rises and emerges from the Hollow into Edna's. Moving slowly through the old house, the Dread Lord enters the Dining room and takes a sword from a mounting on the wall. Suddenly he drops into a perfect fences pose, and walks through three stances with precision.

    Rhodes had never held a sword in his life.

    The borrowed knowledge, loaned, lingering, copied from the dreams of a skilled fencer, was his for a while.

    Slowly, a sinister smile spread across the Dread Lord's face, and a dark cackle burst from his throat.

    For Selena , Rhodes now possesses Wisdom of Dreams , which I intend to use regularly.

    I hope it will be acceptable to roll at the start of scenes to see if Rhodes has picked up a different skill specialty or language for that "day" - usually a thread, or perhaps a string of threads in the case of some plots. If you have a different way you would like to run this, please let me know!
