The Knock permits no seal and no isolation. It thrusts us gleefully out of the safety of ignorance. [The Knock is the principle that opens doors and unseams barriers.]

Knock is the Principle of The Mother of Ants, The Horned-Axe, and The Meniscate, and of openings. It is associated with wounds, locksmiths, burglars, and oracles. Its followers are characterized by intense dreams, visions of other places, perceptiveness, manual dexterity, and a disconnect with reality. It is the aspect the Society of the Holy Wound is dedicated to.

Lore Fragments[edit | edit source]

A Locksmith's Secret [ Knock 2 ]: "Sooner or later, every locksmith has the Dream. Now we recite its seven phases... [Nearly every summoning rite requires Knock influence. This lore will provide it.]"

An Iguvine Rite [ Knock 4 ]: "Every door in the Mansus requires its sacrifice before it will open. The Iguvine Rites prescribe the manner of the sacrifice. [Nearly every summoning rite requires Knock influence. This lore will provide it.]"

A Consent of Wounds [ Knock 6 ]: "To open certain Ways, one must first open oneself. This practice outlines that opening, in the name of the Mother of Ants. [Nearly every summoning rite requires Knock influence. This lore will provide it.]"

Meniscate Invocation [ Knock 8 ]: "When the moon's face was wounded, these words appeared. [Nearly every summoning rite requires Knock influence. This lore will provide it.]"

Formulae Ophidian [ Knock 10 ]: "Serpents are the visitors which may not be denied. [Nearly every summoning rite requires Knock influence. This lore will provide it.]"

Liminal Evocation [ Knock 12 ]: "One god-who-was-stone remains, and she watches all thresholds. [Nearly every summoning Rite requires Knock influence. This lore will provide it.]"

Mysteries of Opening [ Knock 14 ]: "The Mother of Ants is the child of two rivers. The Horned-Axe is the last god-from-Stone. The Meniscate was born in the Moon from Light. The Wound and the Threshold and the Revelation are all the Gate's aspects, and here is their secret doctrine... [Nearly every summoning rite requires Knock influence. This lore will provide it.]"

Tools[edit | edit source]

Tool Aspect level Description
'The Mother of Ants' 8 Even in the days of Elam, she had begun to appear thus.
Consecrated Lintel 8 This is the skull of a door through which power has passed.
Frangiclave 12 There are keys that open doors; then there are keys that destroy them.
Icon of St Agnes 4 St Agnes of Bohemia was renowned for her pious dedication to the mortification of the flesh. This icon makes for grisly viewing.

Ingredients[edit | edit source]

Ingredient Aspect level Description
Azoth 12 Store this only in containers of a pure element, and never permit it to grow warm. Perhaps it isn't the final solvent that the alchemists sought. But it will do, for our purposes.
Sthenic Venom 8 From time to time, the Mother of Ants has also been called the Daughter of Venoms. This substance opens the body in uncountable places.
The Byzantine Tinct 4 The profound purple worn in only Histories, where Tyrian dye was not rich enough for emperors. It is difficult to bar entry to one wearing this colour.
