|“||´Life is a pure flame, and we live by an invisible Sun within us.' - Thomas Brown [Lantern is the principle of the secret place sometimes called the House of the Sun, and the light above it.]||„|
Lantern is the Principle of The Door in the Eye and the offspring of The Sun-in-Splendour, of unkindness, the Mansus, and the Glory. Its followers are characterized by mystically powerful dreams and a devotion to the Sun. It is the aspect the Mirror of Glory is dedicated to.
A Mansus-Glimpse [ Lantern 4 ]: "A snatch of poetry; a single memory of a certain house that all of us visit at least twice in our lives. For one's first visit to the Mansus, this lore is almost essential."
Formulae Concursate [ Lantern 10 ] "The Concursum waits at the Lantern of the Mansus. It has been called the Chamber of Ways and also the Chamber of Endings. Its intricacies are probably beyond human comprehension, but these formulae are a first approximation."
Mantra of Ascent [ Lantern 12 ]: "The Ascent of Knives is the bloodiest of the Watchman's tests. Those who pass it and are dead enter the service of the Sun-in-Rags. Those living who pass it are a little closer to the Glory."
Illuminate Mysteries [ Lantern 14 ]: "The Meniscate, the Madrugad, the Flowermaker and the Forge of Days are the gods-from-Light. There is a fifth, but now we know it is not the Watchman. Yet the Watchman shares a secret doctrine with those five, and here is that doctrine... [Use this in a Rite with a Subtle Rupture and a Paradoxical Curio, and someone will come. Speak it to a Hunter, and it might drive them insane on the spot.]"
