How It Begins

The sound of porcelain shattering. You are surrounded by stone, not a prison, that somehow admits the moonlight to diffuse through it. Carved stairs spiral downward.

Who you are isn't clear. You remember the armor and silks you wear, but not your face. A porcelain mask is on the floor -- a half mask. And you -- the left side of your face is porcelain, as if it were part of you, as if it wasn't a mask at all. How long have you worn porcelain as a face?
