Demonforged Ice


The Writer glimpsed it in his journeys through the various hells, but he paid no heed to it. His tale was about the afterlife and the punishments therein, not the arms and armor of the Darkness.

Full Item Description
No mere words can describe the vast cold that radiates from this material, the terrible chill that sinks into the very bones of those around it. It looks simply like darkened, shadowy ice. Appearances can be deceiving.

Not all of the hell-realms are flaming torture chambers. Some are exactly the opposite, such as the eternally frozen Ice-Hell. There, the souls of the damned are punished by forcing them to mine this demonic ice, chip by chip. Using the hottest of flames, the demon-smiths can soften the ice enough to forge it into arms and armor that no mortal steel can match.

Magic/Cursed Properties
While the most intense heat can soften the ice, no mortal flame can do so, and even hellfire cannot melt demonforged ice. The intense cold radiating from the ice will cause instant frostbite to any mortal skin that touches it, and eventually everyone nearby will need to worry about frostbite as well. Most mortals cannot stand being anywhere near demonforged ice, thanks to it’s aura of frozen damnation.

Suffice it to say that in the vicinity, liquids freeze, breath begins to frost, and metal becomes painful to touch. All of this is merely the beginning, however.

Demonforged Ice is irreversably tainted with the essence of suffering and evil that imbues the icy hell it comes from. It will cause demon taint within those wounded by it, and eventually within any mortal who bears it. Such a taint corrupts the afflicted, as well as causes damage that cannot be healed save on holy ground. Death is the most merciful of outcomes that the tainted can have. If the taint is left to fester, it can consume them entirely, turning them into something best left unmentioned.

{Siren no Orakio} 10:20 pm: Needs a little note on how it gets out of Hell on occasion, though
{Chaosmark} 10:21 pm: Someone gets lucky and kills a demon wearing such armor, or makes a dark pact for it.
{Chaosmark} 10:21 pm: Same as with just about any demon-tainted item.

People that live in cities no longer have any contact with the gods. There was a pact between the gods, humans, and animals. We could talk to the gods and the trees were the witness' to the pact. When the trees started getting cut down to make cities the pact was broken by the destruction of the witness'. So now only those that live with nature can speak to the gods and/or animals. Some trees grow tall creating darkness that scares men and they are not able to go near them. If they could they could again speak to the gods.
