Storm Sigil

By:

A fragment of the mighty Blades of the Storm, reworked into an icon of faith and worship to the very god who once graced it with her touch.

Full Item Description

The Storm Sigil is remarkably simple-looking; it is nothing more than a fragment of metal worked into the shape of a thunderbolt, a common holy symbol of the Divine Storm. It hangs on a plain silver chain, all of it sized for the diminutive form of a pixie. What differs most from the common holy symbols, however, is the otherworldly metal the symbol is forged from; the same grey-blue as a storm-torn sky, it seems to hum faintly with an electric power. In moment when the bearer is engaged in acts of passion and destruction, this sensation multiplies, as the sigil responds to the essences from which it was drawn.

History

The early history of the Storm Sigil is the same as any other of the Shards of the Storm; from the destruction of the blades, it hurtled across the world, spinning in the heavens for long years before it finally descended wih a stroke of lightning to shatter an ancient oak in a forest of pixies. It was the same storm which brought Raziel to his faith, and he found the fragment shortly after, taking it as a sign of blessing from his newfound deity.

It took him months to find a smith both willing and capable of forging the fragment; always before it had twisted in the process, seeking to become a weapon once more despite the most dedicated efforts of the crafter. It was only in the hands of a fellow disciple of the Storm that it was shaped to become a sacred icon, and that the destructive pixie gained the most potent of his belongings.

It has, since that time, remained around Raziel’s neck at all times; even when sleeping, or cleaning himself, he finds himself unwilling to relinquish the pleasant hum of power against his skin. Some have tried to part him from it by money or force, but each of these attempts has ended in bloody havoc for the perpetrators.

Magic/Cursed Properties

The Storm Sigil, at the simplest, is an amplifier; magic of destructive or passionate nature is amplified dramatically when cast by the icon’s bearer, as is any sacred magic of the original owner of the Shard itself. This alone makes it more valuable and potent a tool than most artificers ever accomplish in their lifetimes.

Less obvious is the effect of amplification upon the bearer’s emotions; whenever passionate or engaged by some destructive emotion, the icon’s energies amplify this state, creating a near-berserk state of passionate bliss from even the darkest of rages. For one such as the pixie who bears it, this has resulted in a love of battle and bloodshed for the sake of it, a divine experience exulting in the savage aspect of his deity.

If they don't mind essentially becoming a conduit for the will of the Divine Storm, perhaps.

Hmm. This made me think of a ring that brings euphoria any time the user is passionate about something. The ultimate addictive drug?

Ringworld-based game , anyone

       By: Kawaresksenjajok

hey im new to this site but was here years ago w/ another name. anyways dont remember so im newbie by default.
Firstly, I am a sci-fi reader and I hope to meet success with my writing.
My favorite series of books are Larry Nivens RINGWORLD tetralogy (Ringworld, RingWorld Engineers, The RingWorld Throne, and RingWorlds Children)
For those that havnt read the ring world is the greatest artificial structere ever discovered.
A ring, its circumference equal to earths orbit, it is built around a sol-like star. Shadow squares halfway betwwn the ring and the sun provide 15 hours of night in a thirty hour day. 70 days equals one falan (one full rotation of ring world. The inner surface-the one exposed to the sun, is terraformed and is one millionkmwide cntrifugal force provides gravity, and rim walls 1000km high keep the atmosphere in. Population of RNH(ringworld native hominids)
estimated in the trillions.
The origins of who built it and why are too sticky to get into. But the ringworld , millions of years ago, was populated bt A race called Pak Protectors. Protectors are ancestors of all homo sapiens. they populated ringworld with homo erectus, but left no predators in the ecology. hence, hominids evolved into every ecological niche. (Vampires, Carrion Eaters, Giant Herbivores, Small Carnivores, some built great technologies and went interstellar. Oh, and ringworld is 300 million times the surface area of earth. post if youre interested, Ill elabortae on native species and alien vistors
