Description You've touched a strange set of dreams somehow pieced together from other, older sources. The joints are still uncomfortably visible, but something about the patched-together whole speaks to you.
When Used (See below)


Using the Tattered Horror Paperback. Permanent.


The skill can be toggled to (de)activate it from your character sheet. Using the skill gives:


(If non-etheric)
It's hard to tell sometimes, between fake science and the real thing. Thankfully, the maddest of mad science is still well in the past… well, except for the dreams of people raised on the stories, you suppose.

(If etheric)
You feel like you're walking through someone else's dreams, but it's still kind of surprising how much it feels that that terrible book about mad science and unauthorized experiments.

And then:

(If skill is toggled off:)
You haven't been thinking about this much lately.
Start thinking

(If skill is toggled on:)
You've been thinking about this a lot lately.
Stop it

Choosing to start thinking results in:

You dwell on the twisted routes of mad science a bit, all the ideas that people thought should work but never panned out. You can't seem to get them out of your head.

Stop it results in:

You resolve to stop thinking about mad science so much. There's plenty of crazy actual science to dwell on.
