The stars of Pash-Mara
You have seen the end of the world, and it consumes
you. Whether you saw it in a vision, unearthed the
truth while poring over ancient texts, read it in the
stars, or simply woke one day with the knowledge fully
formed in your head, you know the truth about how
everything will come to an end. You may be driven by
a need to spread to the truth to all who will listen, or
you may be driven to prevent the end at all costs – or to
ensure that it comes about as you saw it.
Discuss what you know, and how you learned it,
with your DM. You may want to decide between you
whether the end you foresaw is a true one; alternatively,
you may prefer not to know whether your apocalypse
will come to pass.

Feature: It’s An Omen
When you have a moment to your self, you can use the
tools of your divination to observe an omen of your
near future. While the signs are not always clear, you
gain a strong impression about something that will affect
you soon – whether that is a sense of clarity regarding
a decision you should make, an idea of the weather
over the next few days, or a sense of immediate safety
or danger. The details are rarely clear, but very occasionally
you may receive more specific information.
You should decide what form your divination
takes. You may cast the bones, read tea leaves, observe
the stars, enter into a hallucinogenic trance, or something
Some doomsayers fear the knowledge they have
gained, while others draw strength and purpose from
it. Whether they wish to prevent or fulfill the prophecy
they have seen, or simply to warn others about its
coming, their knowledge shapes their attitudes and
ideals. Some doomsayers become incredibly nihilistic,
believing that life has no purpose. More than a few are
driven slightly mad by the things they have seen.
