Inhabitants of the Abyss are terrifying and varied, yet Mystics fear nothing more than consumption by an ingurgitant vortex. These churning windows of ingestion can appear in anything solid — floors and walls being the most common, coffins and beds being the most dreaded.
The vortex is a concave depression, slowly grinding in an anti-clockwise spiral. It’s typically between one and three meters (3 to 10 feet) across, though rumors hold of ingurgitants of greater size. From within the vortex pours a mass of thin, grasping tongues, attempting to pull victims inside. None consumed have ever emerged, and their souls have proved impossible to locate.
The ingurgitant vortex strikes without warning. Deterring the ingurgitant takes application of a natural light, or fire — no mean feat in its domain of the Abyss. Most horrifying of all is the sweet, singing voice emerging from inside the vortex, beckoning victims inside in the voice of someone once dear to them.
Once the vortex has a taste of its victim, it will continue to manifest in proximity to the vampire night after night. It can only change locations three times a night.
