Demonforged Ice

By:

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.

History
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.

The Candle-Eyed Man

       By: Murometz

The third son of a candle-maker, and secretly a spy, Tsiao Fong Wei betrayed his family, clan, and town to the merciless Qongg Dynasty, causing the deaths of his own family members. He survived to an old age hiding out in the country side and keeping a low profile. One day however, the “Paper Knife” finally found Tsiao Fong Wei , and exacted his revenge on behalf of the folk, dead and tortured.

After a furious struggle, the “Paper Knife” plunged twin burning candles into the eyes of the traitorous old man and laughed, as Tsiao Fong Wei howled in dismay and pain. Some say Tsiao Fong Wei died that day. Others say that the old man somehow escaped despite his sudden anguish and utter blindness.

The truth is lost to time.

But to this day the children of the Red-Ridge County towns and villages are told by their parents to always beware twin lights in the darkness and to never venture into the woods at night, and to keep an ear open for the Groaning Ghost, for somewhere out there Tsiao Fong Wei the Traitor, now a vengeful spirit, stumbles about the darkness moaning and wailing, candles still sticking forth from out of his otherwise empty eye sockets. And though the candles plunged into his eyes all those years ago were a’flame going in, now the wax protuberances are somehow lit from within and burn without, and two flickering lights in the darkness, always portend his coming.
