Cleon


Appearance

Race: Human
Gender: Male
Age: 18
Birthday: 18th of Fall, 503 A.V.
Birthplace: Sunberth
Height: 6ft3in
Weight 210 lbs
Hair color:Dirty blond
Eye color:Muddy green



Appearance:Since coming to Syka early in the Spring of 522 AV, Cleon has experienced significant changes in his physique. Because he has had access to a varied diet, exercise, and plenty of sun, Cleon has had a growth spurt of sorts.

Cleon looks much more his age now as he has put on more pounds to go along with the change in height over the course of the Spring. He is lean with a hint of muscle due to having spent most of the season hard at work to try and fight the nature of his curse that wanted of him quite the opposite. His skin tone has also transitioned from a pallid sickly color to take on a slight tan.

His scars have also changed. Where once they had marked the flesh of his back with reddish brown stripes, the lash marks have since faded to an off white color. The same can be said for the circular burn marks on his forearms which have become small marks that are fairly lighter than his natural skin tone. The deep purple gouge that wraps around the lower half of his left leg, starting vertically from the shin to cross down to the lower part of his calf is now a much lighter purple though it still aches significantly with changes in the weather. On his right foot where the first knuckle of his middle toe is missing, the puckered skin there has long since faded to be a lighter tone than the rest of the fair skin on his foot.

He has also started taking better care of his hair, washing in regularly so that he doesn't mind so much wearing it loose about his shoulders anymore, and in fact does so now most of the time. When he moves, there is more confidence in his step. He doesn't like to shuffle around anymore and averting his eyes when people draw near. He likes too look them straight in the face when he talks with them, and takes a small bit of pleasure in the fact that he has conquered his Spring ailments for now.


He still continues to chew his nails to the quick, but the rest of his fingers look significantly healthier than they had been a season earlier. His eyes too have changed as the whites around the irises are now clear.

Character Concept

While Cleon wouldn’t say he was a complicated individual, life has rendered him certainly more complex than one gets from a glance. He believes life is all just a roll of the dice, and that his luck in regards to that has been worst than most. This is not to say he pities his position. He has accepted his fate as being what it is, and believes this latest string of good luck is just a fluke and soon the balance will right itself. He only hopes he can get his younger sister Faye somewhere she can be safe and comfortable before it comes to that.

The events of Spring have significantly changed Cleon's perspective since coming to Syka in 522AV. Only just freed from his curse, time will tell what he does with what he learned over the course of the past season. One thing is for certain. Cleon met quite a few extraordinary people who had a significant impact on shaping who he will become.

Character History

From a young age, he suffered abuse from his father, and brother, and eventually was forced to raise his sister Farren who was a year younger than him. He thought it couldn’t get any worse than what he was experiencing at the hands of his family members but then they started to abuse Farren and Cleon’s perception of himself changed considerably.

He no longer held hope for himself that he was different, that he could get out of this life if he could only be given the opportunity. Cleon withdrew from the world almost altogether then, only staying out of loyalty to his sister whom he felt bad for. Day after day, the guilt mounted on his shoulders as he was forced to take on dangerous tasks to contribute to the household while continuing to suffer abuse at night.

In the end, it was no hope or opportunity that broke him out of this inward trance, but the birth of his youngest sister Faye. From that moment, he knew something would have to change, and it would take grit, and determination to do it. He started hiding things from his family in a little getaway he prepared in the mines, filching stuff over the next few years till he began to grow anxious for Faye’s safety as they started to order him to bring Faye out more to show her off to guests.

Then the opportunity came one night when it was only his older sister watching them. While she was nursing a drug-induced stupor on the couch, Cleon took off with his two younger sisters, robbing the place blind of the few valuables it had.

While living alone in the mines was hard, it was volumes better than back at home, and for the first time, Cleon felt an immense weight off of his shoulders. An that lasted all about a tenday when they’d finally sold off the last of their haul from the house to buy a mealy loaf of bread. The fear and anxiety crept in soon after as their need surmounted with every passing day, and Cleon and Farren were forced to take on increased risks. Cleon from stealing what he could, while Farren sold her body for scraps.

They reached a sort of uneasy equilibrium doing that, but it put an immense strain on them both mentally, especially when all three of them started getting sick from staying in the drafty mine. Farren was the first to break. One day she just stopped speaking, just carried on with her routine as robotically as possible. Eventually, she struggled to even get up out of bed, and Cleon wasn’t the most helpful in this regard. He resented her for not helping him support their little home in the mines while he slowly became consumed by guilt that he had somehow pushed her to this brink.

As weeks turned into seasons, Cleon was almost to his own breaking point when one day he returned to find Farren more chipper than ever and having gone out, and came back with a significant haul. However, he broke when she told him how she got it and just completely shut down when it came to her, refusing anything from her when she offered to put them up in a room. All because she had been marked by Nikali which was something just a little too much for him to stomach. He pushed her out of their lives, and for several weeks he did not see her.

Over that period he mellowed out somewhat, and came to regret his actions, but was too stubborn to seek her out so it would be another season till they ran into each other again. Only it was left him more bitter as the meeting was brief and left him feeling more guilty than ever. For she had sold herself into the service of some merchant, and had given them nearly the entire purse. He took it, though he hated himself for it, because it was a substantial amount of miles, enough to see him and Faye well away from the city that seemed to breed misery. He didn’t say goodbye to Farren. Didn’t say I love you. Just closed the door and got him and Faye out of there as fast as possible, hitching a ride on the next caravan to leave the city.

Although it was a large sum, they lived miserly on the road as Cleon didn’t expect it to last, and it didn’t. Days turned over to weeks, to seasons as they crossed the suvan from Syliras.

It was there he got himself into a spot of trouble when he caught a sailor manhandling Faye to get her out of a restricted area on the ship. Naturally, he tried to attack the man and promptly got put into his place. They dumped them off in Kenash after punishing him his due throughout the last leg of the trip, and there he had to spend even more money to get them out as soon as possible as life there didn’t look much different to Sunberth and was basically untenable when the crew spread the word about them.

Cleon overpaid to get them out and on towards Riverfall where they hunkered down through the Winter while he figured out their next step. He should have been happy where he was, Riverfall was safe enough, but perhaps there was a little bit too much ego involved as he just couldn’t shake the uneasy feeling that overcame him being around all of those giant men. So comes Spring, they took the first ship out to Syka, where Cleon hoped desperately to start a new life for him and Faye.

Gnosis Story

Cleon wanted to shank the man that recommended he take the trip from Syliras to Kenash by sea. While their travel overland to Syliras from Sunberth had been hard and grueling, the journey over the sea had all that in combination with them being restricted to too tight quarters, and smelling constantly of his own sick ups those first long few days. He wouldn’t of course, but oh how he very much wanted to as he leaned over the railing, trembling from the effort of just having spewed the remainder of his breakfast over the side of the ship.

It was a gray morning, which suited his mood perfectly. As the overcast sky whipped by, and the dark bluish-green of the sea slapped at the bow, he thought about where they were headed. Not in the immediate. Kenash was nothing to him, and besides, it was far too close to Sunberth for his taste. No, he wanted to get as far away from that place as this money would take him. To spend it all getting there, and maybe, just maybe stop feeling guilty about using this money in the first place though he wasn’t holding any vigils on that account.

No, certainly not. Guilt, anxiety, and fear had been his bedmates from the start and they were not about to leave him alone now.

He pressed his weight against the railing where his arms rested until the pain started to radiate up his forearms until he winced. It was not enough to even blunt the inner turmoil that swirled within him, but it was a distraction however fleeting, a distraction was something he found himself craving constantly on this journey of theirs where there was nothing really to do but wait for someone to take you somewhere. Cleon had spent so much of his life striving to survive on scraps that this experience was entirely alien to him, and not altogether comfortable.

He needed to do something but the only things he knew how to do would get him in trouble with the crew. So he waited, gambling that somewhere down the line of the journey they’d find somewhere that they could make a home for themselves. His sister Faye deserved some kind of stability and comfort even if he didn’t. He was determined to find such a place before his luck caught up with him.

“You need to get below decks before a swell takes you off the deck. Take a bucket if you need to, but get to your quarters now.” A man said from somewhere behind and above him, and Cleon immediately took the voice for the captains for the man had an accent altogether different from the crew. That was to say, his voice had an almost somber melodic quality to it, and he pronounced his words low and slow. Combined with the tawny color of his skin, Cleon dared to think that this man was not from hereabouts but perhaps a place as far as the one he was currently seeking.

He didn’t judge the man too much for this, although he had at first regarded him with a healthy amount of distrust given his apparent foreignness. However, the man had been naught but kind to him and his sister, even going so far as to gift Faye a little trinket that had kept her occupied ever since. So the man was alright in his book. Alright enough at least for a man that persisted to order him about like a dog, but Cleon didn’t have much choice in the matter where that was concerned.

He went below decks without another word, navigating his way through the narrow confines of a packed cargo hold until he got to the very back where they had been tucked away for the voyage. In a small two-by-one space enclosed by several heavy crates a hammock was strung, and underneath his little sister was playing the sparkling piece of green glass that hung off of a piece of twine wrapped around her neck. The gift as it were was simple, but oh how she looked at it with affection that spread into a widening smile when she looked up to see him.

It was as if she didn’t recognize his haggard appearance when she saw him, but only the essence of who he was to her. She looked at him as if he was a protector, and that broke his heart every time, but he did not let that touch the smile he feigned for her as he bent at the knees and placed the empty wooden bucket off in a corner where no doubt he would need it soon.

“How are you doing little Fae?” He asked softly, barely heard over the groan of the ship's boards and the dull murmur of dozens of people talking throughout the sloop.

Faye bit her lip nervously, looked down then up again, then fidgeted with the linen drawstring of her gray cloak. “I’m good, a bit hungry.” She said in a small voice that was tense with worry. She didn’t like the ship too much either, but this was more than that he knew, and felt once more he was the cause of this unease. He widened his smile unnaturally though he was careful to keep his lips mostly closed as he was self-conscious of his teeth even with his sister.

“Almost time yes, but I brought something to tide you over in the meantime.” He said, continuing to whisper which was practically talking normally in these boisterous confines. From his front pocket, he drew a strip of dried meat. He didn’t know what kind, only that it was palatable if a bit over salted. Faye took it from him gratefully, though she hesitated to take a bite until he nodded at her and gestured for her to continue with his hands.

“Don’t worry, I’m all full.” He reassured her as his belly rumbled. “This is just me digesting some of the meat the captain gave me topside.” His smile cracked, but Faye was looking down at her piece of glass again, rolling it between her delicate fingers.

“Do you think we’ll be there soon?” She asked hopefully, not looking up.

“I know we will. Then we’ll be that much closer to the home that awaits us.” Cleon said.

“Can you-” Faye started to say before she started coughing, great hacking gasps that made her clutch her chest. Cleon did his best to do what he always did on such occasions which were becoming more and more frequent. He moved over to rub her back, patting it gently until she stopped coughing and leaned against him without a trace of energy.

“What were you going to say, Faye?” Cleon asked after several moments had passed.

“Can you tell me again what it will be like when we get there,” Faye asked weakly.

“Oh you’ve had to have heard this a dozen times already, but here it goes. As the sailor said, there will be warm white sand, beautiful turquoise water, and fresh fruit growing everywhere as far as the eye can see. Certainly, more than you could ever eat in a lifetime. They will help us to build a house there, a place we can make into a proper home, where we never have to worry about where our next meal is coming from and where we each have our own warm bed. It's going to be beautiful, just you wait and see.” He said and looked over and saw she was asleep, a piece of half-eaten jerky still in her hand.

Gently, he looped his arms under her knees, and then across her back before bracing himself against the wood and pulling her up with some effort. She was barely forty pounds, and yet he still struggled as he wasn’t much more than skin and bones himself. By all that is good in the world though she didn’t wake up as he jostled her into the hammock, and then gently folded her hands over her stomach where he replaced the piece of jerky that had fallen on the ground.

As he heaved for breath, he felt a familiar tickle at the back of his throat and walked a short way before hacking up a cough into his hand. Scarlet red spittle stared back at him. He blinked at it several times, nodded at nothing in particular then wiped it off on the back of his trousers before returning to their little cubby where he made himself as comfortable as he could underneath the hammock.

He woke up sometime later a little more battered and bruised from his fitful sleep rolling between the crates and the hull of the ship. Cleon felt full of piss and vinegar, so he rolled out of his makeshift bed and went to go piss off the side of the ship. The wind was frothing up the waves something fierce now but the sky was still the same milky grey it had been before. Cleon had to loop his arm through the railing to hold on as he took his piss, and hunched over as he was he almost thought it was raining till he realized the wind was blowing droplets of piss back at him.

Practically fuming, he had half a mind to dunk his face into one of the water barrels, but he knew the captain kept a stiff watch on those so he mopped up what he could off of his face with the edge of his cloak which was still crusty from wiping this morning’s sick. It made him want to scream. To rip off his clothes. To do anything other than what he did which was be a good little sheep and meekly find his way back below decks before the captain caught him up here again. He had to keep reminding himself that he was doing this for Faye as he made his way down.

As he neared their hammock, he noticed a bit of a commotion back there and started to pick up the pace as he slipped between passengers and crew alike. As he drew closer, he was able to make out what was being said, and more importantly, see a large man blocking the entrance of their little room.

“-An where erer did a sneaky little bilge rat like you get a necklace like that. Moreover, how’d you afford this trip in the first place? Snuck in? Cause none of these others will claim you.” The man groused, and as Cleon edged around he saw that the man was holding his sister by the wrist a good few feet off the ground.

He didn’t think past that. Pushing past another man that was just enough in his way, Cleon wound his leg back and kicked squarely between the man’s legs from behind. It succeeded in getting him to drop Faye, but instead of him buckling over so Cleon could get a shot at his face, the man whirled around and punched him squarely across the jaw. Suddenly he was falling straight onto his back, legs stiff as boards as the world spun and blood filled his mouth.

There was no pain, not yet, just the hazy recollection of being lifted up, and a fist coming straight between the eyes before it all went black. When he came to next they were wrapping a thick towing rope around his wrists, looping it around in a tight figure eight as they stood at the back of the ship, topside now. He could smell the ocean mixed with his own blood, and the fetid smell pouring out of the sailor’s mouth that hovered over his face while he made the knot secure.

“There, let's see if the rat can swim.” The man said with a dark smile as he hauled Cleon up to his feet, then almost mockingly, place him gently on the railing. Behind him, he could hear the hiss of water as it tumbled up from underneath the ship, and his fear washed everything else away as what color he had was quickly drained from his face. “But first, let's give the sharks a little taste.”

The man produced a knife which he drew up before Cleon’s face and he found that he couldn’t move a muscle to stop it as his heart hammered in his chest. He prayed that it would be swift, and flinched as the cold steel touched the inside of his left nostril. In jerking back he felt a brief sting that was overshadowed by tumbling head over heels into the water below.

The cold was the first thing to envelop him as he struggled to register up from down till he was jerked to the surface several moments later when the line went taut. He came up sputtering, but not for long before he twisted along with the rope, ducking his head back underwater, and filling his mouth with salty water. Oh, petch, he breathed some of it in, and his body started seizing as he turned and turned, out of the water, then back under, out, under.

Something slipped or snapped. His wrists were free and just as suddenly he was no longer being pulled through the water although he was still being rocked by waves as he sputtered to keep afloat midst wracking coughs to regain his breath.

“You are far from home son of Sunberth” A deep voice called out to him from the sea, breaking him from his panicked struggle briefly before he disappeared back under the water. Then something lifted him from up under, its flesh as hard as a rock only it rippled against him as it navigated through the water.

Instinctually, he grabbed at the fin it presented and was promptly carried against the current in what felt like bobbing strides. It was a strange sort of creature, with a nose that looked a little like the end of a broom and a hole in the top of what he could only consider as its head. Its appendages.. fins? Looked like solid little ship sails made of flesh that was hard to the touch.

Whatever it was it didn't seem to mind him holding onto it like a drowned rat, but then it occurred to him to ask what was that voice he had heard, and he looked to the dolphin slightly horrified.

"Look around, Cleon." The voice said again, most certainly not coming from the dolphin but to his left and as he looked he saw a man that seemed to come from the sea itself and had no problem keeping up with the pace of the dolphin though he wasn't doing any swimming from what Cleon saw.

"Who are you?" He asked, biting his tongue as the words left his mouth, considering rightly so that he might just have had given his soul away to a wizard when something simpler and much more understandable came out of the being's mouth.

"I am Laviku and you are in my domain. I first knew you as a boy on the shores of the outer suvan, and nowhere you have crossed to the inner. Why?" He asked.

Laviku did not strike a chord with Cleon beyond a distantly remembered recollection of some sort of a ritual the sailors conducted at the start of their voyage. They seemed to place a good deal of reverence on that name which meant.. Cleon swallowed hard as he remembered the significance.

"I.. I.. I'm just trying to make sure my sister enjoys a better life than I had growing up. I'm sorry that I didn't join in with their prayers. I didn't know the words and they were all speaking so fast in that strange accent of theirs, and.."

"If I held a grudge upon you for that, do you think you would be here now being taken back to your ship on the back of one of my creatures? Please, be still and listen, and all will be well I promise you." His voice reverberated through Cleon's bones, and he trembled though if from the cold or the power it was hard to tell, but if he was being honest, it was a little bit of both.

"You have lived by the sea all of your life but have never tread my waters, never given offerings or said any prayers and all that is to say it is fine because you were ignorant of my existence. Sunberth is far from the most enlightened of cities, and your upbringing likely left you more bereft than most.

All the same, I have taken pity on you this day, in part because of the actions of your sister whom you swear to protect. When she saw you go overboard, she threw her necklace overboard, that thing that was most precious to her, and guess who's name was on her lips when she prayed to me for succor. Not her own, but yours.

So here I am, and I will bring you to your ship because your plight has touched me. In return, you will remember my name whenever you return to sea, pray and give tithes like the rest of them. I will be watching you son of Sunberth." The man said as he reached out and brushed his fingers across Cleon's left forearm.

Something bright blossomed there, a circle of waves endlessly crashing into each other before his very eyes. When he looked up the man was gone, and in his place with the enlarging silhouette of the ship.

Once they were astride it, chance had it the Captian caught sight of him and threw a thick rope overboard.

Cleon nodded and reached out through the water, splashing a few times till he finally wrapped the thick rope around his arm before letting go of the dolphin and grabbing it with the other. Hastily, he scrambled up the rope before the ship could pull him under as he’d seen it so often do to a stray piece of flotsam. It took nearly everything he had, but one after the other he managed to scramble up that rope although his hands were properly blistered by the time he managed to clamber over the edge of the rail and roll onto the deck.

Rolling onto his back onto the first solid thing he felt in what seemed like forever, Cleon almost wanted to sob with joy but refrained from doing so as he rolled onto his belly and peeked over the edge, but was long gone. Tired, he rested the side of his face against his hands as he muttered a quick thank you to Laviku and briefly closed his eyes until someone prodded him with the edge of his boot.

“Didn’t I warn you about going overboard.” The captain spoke from behind him, and Cleon took in a deep breath before pulling himself up to his feet. As he stood there trembling before the man, not knowing just what he was going to say, the man wrapped a thick wool blanket around him before taking a step back to look him up and down, narrowing his eyes after a moment. “Good thing you thought to grab a rope. Now stay off my deck unless it's an emergency, got it?” The captain asked coolly and Cleon nodded, but there was something in his eyes that told him that there was more to it than just that, but Cleon wasn’t going to be the one to air that dirt out.

He didn’t need to be told something twice. He went down below without a word, or almost did but hesitated at the ladder that lead below decks.

“Thank you, Captain. I’ll get this back to you as soon as it's dry.” Cleon said gratefully, and the captain just waved him off, spitting a luge over the side of the railing before going back to steer the ship. For the rest of the trip, Cleon didn’t say a word and stayed the petch away from the man he’d kicked in the balls. In fact, he didn’t leave that corner at all unless he had good reason to, and then he took his sister Faye with them. When they finally made port in Kenash, Cleon promptly found the next ship set to leave and further them along their trail.

His encounter with Laviku gave him much to think about, not the least of which was the waves that now pulsed animatedly across his forearm as they crept their way up. It was a mark that had the immediate effect of setting the ship a buzz with gossip which he mostly stayed out of below decks. Aside from that obvious concern, their meeting and his little spill into the water had left a profound impression on him in regards to the journey they were taking. It was just as dangerous and as much of a gamble as every day in Sunberth had been, but more importantly, he was more confident than ever that it was worth the risk if it meant some kind of peace at the end road. He had a good idea that this was not the last bet he was ever going to make, and he was for petch sure that he wasn't going to miss giving Laviku his due respect in the future.

Magical Items



Charm Bracelet
- Acquired the 50th of Spring, 522 AV


Image

Properties: Worn on his left wrist, it can never be taken off. It also has the capacity to hold several different types of magical charms.

Currently attached charms:

- Bent-Armed Cross – This charm is a charm of refreshment. When you are extremely fatigued, you can activate this charm and your mental and physical energy levels will return to their normal well-rested state as if the wearer has never been fatigued. This charm can be used once per ten-day period.

Acquired here. 51st of Spring, 522 AV.

- Silhouette of Human’s Head With A Spiral At The Crown – This small decorative charm, when activated, allows the user to know a person’s surface thoughts for five full chimes. This charm is strong enough it can be activated once per day.

Acquired here. 50th of Spring, 522 AV


Wine Bottle – This sleek-looking metal charm will fill any drinking vessel with a liquor of your choice once per day.

Acquired here. 52nd of Spring, 522 AV.

Snake Fang – This fang-shaped charm can be incredibly dangerous but also highly affective. When touched to a weapon or any other object such as a door knob or the inside of a goblet and saying the word ‘envenom’. The item becomes coated with snake toxin from an eyelash viper. The toxin will not harm the wearer of the charm, but will affect anyone or anything touched with or touching the item as if they were bitten by an eyelash viper. The user can remove the toxin from the item by retouching it a second time and using the word ‘purify’. If a weapon is treated, it will continue to envenomate anyone it comes into contact with before it is ‘purified’. Ie. The venom will not wear off over time.

Acquired here. 58th of Spring, 522 AV.

Worn Leaf – This charm looks like a wavey slightly rumpled tattered autumn leaf. However, it protects the wearer from sudden hard falls at high velocity. Instead of falling based on their weight and speed, the charm allows the wearer to fall as if they were a light gracefully shed autumnal leaf.

Acquired here. 61st of Spring, 522 AV



The Guide Book


Image

Properties - The book presents as a small, unassuming leather bound book with the words THE GUIDE BOOK etched in gold lettering across its cover. The pages within appear to be normal parchment, however they cannot be removed from the book which is also surprisingly durable, and waterproof.

Once per day it generates a page with advice about surviving in whatever biome you are currently inhabiting. The contents of this page limited by way of the fact that they stick to one topic that the page then goes into specific detail about. I.e. There might be a page about jaguars, their hunting habits, behaviors and how to avoid becoming their next meal. If the page concerns an edible plant, it would be complete with detailed diagrams to help the reader identify it.

At the end of each day, the old page disappears and a new one is generated in its place.

Acquired here. 35th of Spring, 522 AV




Silas Wordsmith's Journal on Morphing


Image

Properties - Since time immemorial mages have been secretive about what they wrote down, some more than others. Created ages ago by a mage named Silas who kept an extensive series of journals that he then animated and imprinted with his personality. Because he lived to be a very old mage before he eventually died centuries ago, he managed to cover quite a few topics from personal magic to world magic. These tomes all share Silas' personality, a man who was well known for being intelligent and industrious as well as rather cruel with those he considered to be his subordinates.

(OOC: These journals are careful about who they share their information with, and require that you develop a relationship with them and convince them in thread to divulge their secrets.)

Currently Cleon has not developed a relationship with this book and thus knows nothing about what is written inside.

Acquired here. 35th of Spring, 522 AV




Sharkskin cloth


Image

Properties - This cloth is about ten square inches across, with shark skin on one side and gray felt on the other. When used to sand wood it does so in half the time of normal methods without losing any durability so long as it is stored in salt water after each use. Miraculously when removed from the salt water it is completely dry while the sharkskin remains as supple as ever. Additionally, it confers a + 10 bonus skill to any carpentry project this is used with.

Acquired here. 67th of Spring, 522 AV




Deepsea Candied Fruit


Image

Properties - Stored within a small clay container is an assortment of small candied fruit. These candies have a salty sweet flavor that depends on the fruit, and will take about fifteen chimes to dissolve in a person’s mouth if they manage to resist biting into it. So long as they keep it in their mouth though they will be able to breath under water for the duration it takes for the candy to dissolve in their mouth. There are ten candies in the container to start and after a tenday passes the candies will replenish.

Acquired here. 59th of Spring, 522 AV


Orenmir: Ghost's Bane


Image

Properties - 1. You, Are Not Worthy – The weapon cannot be picked up by anyone other than the owner. For anyone else, it feels as though the weapon weighs as much as the world itself. The owner can use the weapon as normal without fear of it ever being stolen. Effect only makes the weapon seem impossibly heavy to others; it still weighs the same as any other weapon of its type. Constant effect, works only if someone tries to take or hold weapon without owner’s permission.

15. It's Alive! - Weapon is sentient and has an average-above average intellect and personality (Telepathy).

17. Geeper's Creepers - Can wound ghosts and other undead creatures as if they were normal creatures.

22. You can't break it or otherwise destroy it.

23. Made of extraordinarily rare materials from another world. Enhanced durability and greater capacity for further enchantment - plus you get to pick what the material looks like. (Otherworldly Metal)

Acquired here. 59th of Spring, 522 AV


A Tobbacco Tin:


Image

Properties - This neat little black tin has silver tobacco leaves etched on it. Once per day it fills itself up with tobacco. If it is emptied out, the tobacco will refill itself the next day. Each day the flavor and variety are different. Sometimes they are very exotic and sometimes they are very mundane. Enjoy the variety.

Acquired Not yet. 1st th of Summer, 522 AV
