Memories of Hex
Shard of Memory
A shard of memory is an intrinsic part of Hex. While memories are often bled out of the people who venture to hex, they sometimes coalesce into physical form, known as a Shard of Memory. Those in possession of a shard of memory are said to be able to manipulate the fabric of reality within Hex. As such, these shards are much sought-after.
Memories in Hex are quantified by their power, and for simplicity’s sake, take on the memorial value of a single gold coin. Using this scale, a shard of memory is worth about 1000 gp, and there are those who know the rites and rituals to absorb the memories from objects to transfer them into a newly-crafted Shard of Memory.
A shard of memory is a consumable item, it can be used at the threshold of a memorial location to help the user remember the location beyond, instead of letting the latent memories surrounding them dictate the form beyond the veil. It can also be used to affect people and places on a smaller scale, though each shard of memory is different and can affect them in different ways, not always beneficial to the one using them. Though one thing is for certain, using a shard of memory is almost always the precursor to gaining even more memories.
