The Telflammar Shadowlord and You

Little bit of an opinion poll here.

I don't have the book in front of me, but the Telflammar Shadowlord level 5 ability, Shadow Discorporation, has a little ambiguity.

For those of you who don't know, the ability essentially reads (paraphrased):


   Shadow Discorporation (Ex?): Whenever the Telflammar Shadowlord would be reduced to 0 or fewer hit points and is not in an area of daylight or the direct area of a light sources, he or she may attempt a Reflex save (DC = 5 + damage dealt). If the save is successful, the Telflammar Shadowlord breaks apart into a bunch of shadows, reforming at the next sunset at any point of the character's choice within one mile of the spot where he or she discorporated. While discorporated, the Shadowlord cannot do anything or be harmed by his or her enemies. He or she simply ceases to exist.


Pure munchkin, I know. But I love the ability and the class has a big kick of flavour to it. Aaaaaaanyway, my question is thus: When the Telflammar Shadowlord reforms, can he or she just name the spot they want to reappear at? Do they need to be familiar with it? Is it somewhere they need to have personally seen before, or just know where it is?

My gut says they need to know what it looks like, but the ability says otherwise...

... and killing yourself to infiltrate an enemy stronghold is always a fun option for a follower of Loviatar. After all, a little pain never hurt anyone.
