Divine Idol of Rhaus


Description

The Gods of Mizahar are always looking for ways to spread the word of themselves and their power and increase their influence over the denizens of Mizahar and these Divine Idols are one of the many ways in which they have endeavoured to do so. Crafted by and into the likeness of their respective Gods, each 'statue' is eight inches tall in height and made of stone - some bestowed with gemstones and mineral accents to taste. These 'statues' each carry a single Gnosis mark of the God that crafted them to better help them spread Their will and influence. In addition to this, each has the ability to be 'activated' when the person in possession prays to the God the Idol represents. Once this is done, the following will occur:

  • Activation results in the Idol becoming animated and sentient, with the goal to spread the will and belief of the God they were created by
  • Idols will remain animated for the next sixteen bells before falling dormant once more
  • Idols can and often will act as friends, confidants, guides, or even advisors of those who 'own' them, ultimately driven to use this person as a means to further spread the will and influence of their respective God
  • Idols appear to be made of flesh and blood when animated despite the contrary


In addition:

  • Stolen, lost, or gifted Idols lose the spark that allows them to become animated and will become nothing more than a dust collecting trinket
  • Broken or damaged Idols require a full day to repair and restore themselves
  • Idols will only remain animated while in the company of their 'owner' and will fall dormant if left behind
  • Idols offer in-game buffs and perks to their 'owners' and are to be treated as modified traveling NPCs
