Spell for Knowing What You Want

Cast the dice repeatedly until you can tell the difference between the numbers. Each one should give you a different feeling, like three is bland, six is a homecoming, two is full of dread. Then try dropping some marbles in and letting them roll around a bit to learn something about where you are. Maybe the place you've been living has been slanted this whole time. Maybe you've been overcompensating. Try leaning differently. Finally, get a mirror and tilt it until you can see the room to step into.
