He still remembered that thing which had nearly killed him. Of course he expected to remember, but not like this. The pain had faded to a dull ache in his side though it flared up if he reached too high with his left arm, but every time he closed his eyes he saw that monster's face, as if it were burned into his retina. He even saw it with his eyes open sometimes, breaking out in a cold sweat whenever that happened.

These three weapons are grand daiklaves, identical down to the last detail save for the material of their construction. They are made of Orichalcum, Moonsilver, and Starmetal, respectively. Though they are mighty implements of war, so long as they are on the bearer's person and sheathed they act instead as tools of diplomacy.

The First Age Night Caste Narat was seen only when she wished to be seen and heard only when silence itself chose to make no noise. Adding to her considerable personal talents was the miraculous suit she wore night and day; so inseparable was she from this wrapping that it was jokingly refered to as her shadow. She took the comment to heart, and had her Circlemate forge Narat's shadow into the fabric of the suit, completing its magic.

The Iron Jang Bong

The Iron Jang Bong is an ancient First Age staff crafted by a powerful Sidereal who is thought to have contributed to the development of Crane Style martial arts. It is a deceptively simple-looking weapon, consisting of a cold iron core two meters in length and five centimeters in diameter, covered by a thin layer of protective rust, and capped on both ends by 30 centimeter Starmetal jackets. To the unattuned, it weighs over 30 kilograms (nearly 70 pounds), but whomever it recognizes as master can twirl it effortlessly in one hand.

Swath of Darkness

Submitted by Mapache on Mon, 2003-07-14 02:00

The Swath of Darkness is a bandage, about three inches wide and dozens of feet long, woven of a single fine soulsteel thread miles long. If a character binds herself in it from head to toe, then it will behave as sturdy armor of incredible lightness and flexibility that can be comfortably worn indefinitely. While so wrapped, the few exposed parts of the character, namely eyes, mouth, and nostrils, can be seen only indistinctly, appearing to belong to a being made up of inky blackness.
