Sinnameron

By:

Fine artisans are hard to find, and Sinnameron goes out of his way to be even moreso.

Special Equipment:

Gemsmith’s tools, an obscene amount of jewelry.

Appearance:

He’s short, even for a gnome, and tends to have a mildly crazed expression, unless discussing jewelry, when he looks obsessed.

Background:

Sinnameron is a master gemsmith.  One would be hard pressed to find an artesian better than he.  The fact that he is mad is a small price to pay. 

He had always had an affinity for gems and jewelry making, and proved to be a natural at creating enchanted jewelry.  He made several fine pieces, including the necklace Cat’s Eyes as a favor to a friend.  His greatest achievement was the fabled set of Stones of Sinnameron.  But, never very stable to begin with, Sinnameron became obsessed with gems, and eventually went completely mad.  He lives as a hermit now, constantly tinkering with his tools and stones.

Roleplaying Notes:

Sinnameron seems only mildly insane until the conversation turns to gems (which he will endevor to do), when the depths of his madness become apparent.

He would be a fine source for any enchanted jewelry, only he is not willing to part with anything.  He would have to be tricked or coerced, or stolen from.

Use caution if getting him to identify something.  You might not get it back.

He might ask the PCs to go find some rare gem for him, because he is getting too old to go hunt them down anymore.  (Although there is some speculation that he might be nigh immortal, as the result of one of his earlier projects.)  Whether or not he follows through on payment is another matter entirely. 

He would be willing to buy any type of jewelry or gems the PCs come across.  He might even try to steal it.

He's almost like a living version of Corvus, only with gems, not orbs.

I guess. Actually based him on a friend's character.

This one is an NPC, where Corvis is backstory and an excuse to have way too many magik items in a world.

Not bad, Wilecoyote types are easy to play.

Two Minerals

       By: Murometz

Yupiorite

Also called "pale-yellow witch" by alchemists, this mineral is known to possess a peculiar attribute. When found, a Yupiorite will appear the palest yellow. Rather than crystalline in structure, Yupiorite occurs in weird, smooth, ovaline shapes, as if already carved by skilled hands to serve as ring or necklace ornaments. Yupiorite somehow detects and reacts to mood. When the wearer of the gem is content, calm, and happy, the stone will remain the palest yellow. As the person gets more excited, angry, or otherwise stimulated, the mineral will darken progressively to a dark corn-yellow in color. Why the gem reacts this way to sentient mood swings, is still debated by gemologists and alchemists alike.

It is said that the Elven Halls of Vala-Aluduwy are resplendent with wall-sized mirrors of pure Yupiorite, showing plainly and ironically, the emotions of everyone present, despite the Elven love of restraint and stoicism.

Aragdulose

"Cave-grass" or "cave-pine" is a deep forest green in color, rare and often mistaken for other minerals, though otherwise mundane. Crystals form into tiny, ultra-thin, needle-like clusters by the hundreds of thousands, creating vast dark green bursts and structures, resembling evergreen conifers, if viewed by any sort of light. Despite its ephemeral shape, Aragdulose is only second to a diamond in hardness.

Dwarves are said to keep these mineral "trees" in their homes, putting them up during festive family holidays, leaving presents beneath them, for kin to open.
