Mansion of Maleficence by Per Jorner - Introduction - Rules - Start - Sections


The disc flies straight at the thing. Moving quickly, the mirror double snatches the projectile straight out of the air! It then holds its catch up for display as it snickers maliciously at you. You can only stare dejectedly. But something is happening. There is a cracking sound from the creature's right arm, like ice breaking. Parts of its fingers have already turned crystalline and begin to come apart in small fragments. The reflection screams and drops the disc, grasping its right wrist with its other hand and wheezing with pain. Although the Mirror Thing has almost completed its transformation into a human being, it is not you, and this precious possession of yours is harshly inimical to it. Grating its teeth, the double rushes forward to attack. Turn to 23 to end this confrontation, but before you resolve the battle you can reduce the creature's Skill and Vitality by 1 each (though not to zero).
