Today, I created my Astral Temple. Now, normally I wouldn’t tell anybody, but I’m not saying what it would be used for.
It was a tower, in a field of very divided dead yellow grass and vibrant dark green. On the left, a looming forest. On the right, a gigantic peak that stretched seemingly forever. On the side of the field, closer to the mountain, was my temple- a tower. So I decided I’d walk in and get a good view of where my rituals would take place.
When I walked in, the layout was very simple. In front of me, my altar, and behind it, two staircases reaching upwards. As I went to collect materials for the ritual, I noticed something on the left staircase. A spirit.
It was a collection of dust particles in the shape of a person, looking curiously at me. I could tell it was tense and unsure, and instead of trying to contact it I grabbed the black dagger on my altar and rushed it, stabbing it in the gullet. It didn’t bleed, but I knew it was dying. As it died, I saw myself absorbing it like I would vampirically drain someone, and felt the physical buzz.
So, it was something. I’ve never drained quite so much energy in a spirit before.
Thoughts? Anyone experience something strange, like this? I’m curious to hear about it.
