A mnemonic editor consists of a complex series of brain implant
injectors, digital harrow deck autoreaders, illusion runes, and
virtual-reality programs, all controlled by an enchanted analysis
computer and attached to a mobile surgical bed. The network of
magic and technology is capable of removing experiences from a
patient strapped to the bed over the course of a single 24-hour
session. Skills and knowledge can be excised, lessons unlearned
and muscle memory altered. Memories are not lost entirely; the
patient still recalls what it did during its life, whom it met, and
how it felt about the moments it experienced, but the impact of
those experiences is subtly altered. The device then creates a
new set of experiencesâ€”clearly artificial but no less effectiveâ€”by
leaving impressions and implanting new knacks, muscle memory,
reflexes, and skills.
If you use a mnemonic editor, you can undo 2 character levelsâ€™ worth of decisions about which class levels you took, which feats you selected, how you applied any level-based increases to ability scores, how you assigned new skill ranks, and so on. All decisions you made as a result of advancing over the previous 2 character levels you gained are undone. You then make new selections, including new class levels, feats, skills, and the like, as if you had regained the 2 missing character levels. Go through the normal process of advancing your character through each of these 2 levels.
Each mnemonic editor works only onceâ€”the strain on its technology and the consequences of rewriting your past to even this small degree cause it to break down into valueless junk after a single session. Additionally, the alterations made to you render it more difficult for such extraordinary procedures to be effective in the future. A mk 1 mnemonic editor cannot be used on you if you have already benefited from one in the past. However, it is possible to use a more advanced mk 2 model that functions in the same manner, even if you have already used a mk 1 mnemonic editor. Of course, you can only benefit from a mk 2 mnemonic editor once. There exist even more advanced mk 3 and mk 4 models, and each can be used on you once even after you have used a lower-level mnemonic editor, but they are so expensive that they are usually produced only upon request.
