Playing at Humanity: Roles [Promethean: The Created]

Cover art from World of Darkness: Mirrors, illustration by Matthias Kollros

No two Prometheans have the same Pilgrimage. The journey to the New Dawn takes a Promethean through multiple Refinements, and each of those Refinements has multiple lessons about humanity.
