A Brief Primer to Her Serenity
This chant is what the Clueless
hear when they fall out a portal, a nice little summary of truths that
most cutters believe, but even if they are the truth, nothing is ever what it seems.
Those things you can hear about the Lady of Pain just by asking any
old bubbed up cutter. Minor theorys that have been spread because, well, those spilling
the chant don't end up mazed in the night.
The Factions Opinions, suaully with e bent towards there philospohy,
but also a healthy respect for the Lady, even with the most chaotic factions. They know
who keeps the cage safe so they can have there kergstanza war.
Chant brought to the Cage from outside. Usually by planewalkers who
where on some far off plane and found or heard something realted to the Lady. Also word
about how different cultures outside Sigil fill about are Lady.
This is it, the stuff that will get you flayed or throwen into a maze
before you can blink. Go no further if you want to stay attached to your skin.

mysterious figure in Planescape you might like to read this story by
