Star Silver

By:

The Essence of Light, mined from the body of a fallen Star-Child.

Star Silver - The Body of a Fallen Star Child

When the Silver Queen scattered part of her light among the night sky, her Star Children were born. The Star Children are the watchers of evil in the night, providing light to illuminate the treachery of complete darkness, even when their mother is away. Once I a while, for reasons unknown, be they divine quarrels or evil intervention, a Star Child will die and fall from the sky. These corpses appear as molten rock, warped and charred, filled with Star Silver. Star Silver is the very essence of light solidified, when a Star Child dies, so does its light, and the metal can be harvested and put to use in holy artifacts.

While called Silver, the color is only partially so. It appears to have a swirled pattern of constantly shifting pure silver and creamy pearl. It is unsettling to evil creatures, and quite calming for a normal person to gaze upon.

Its physical properties are that of silver, and as such it would make a poor weapon. However, in the light is revealed the truth and the strange metal has a remarkable amplifying effect when used in combination with divination magic.

Nice stuff. It's remarkable how a Star-Child's innate clear-sight can be put to such widely different uses as the Queen's Chalice and the Mirrors. I'd eventually like to see more relics of the church that use this.

My first guess is that most Star-Children would die from curiosity rather than foul-play (they see something that fascinates them on the world below and get just a liiiitle too close to the edge . . .). Being born of deities of overwhelming goodness, it should take a lot to twist a Star-Child to evil purposes. I do wonder what an evil Star-Child would look like, and what properties the metal from its body would have.

the dead mechent of death

       By: celticring

To Dougles Nye money is power, a powerful wizard only newly into lich-hood

Originally the son of servants to a noble family, yet he found that life humiliating. "How could anyone stand to serve another?" he often wondered. His father, was a greedy man who offered an explanation one day “It’s all for the coin, every demanding, humiliating thing. It’s for the coin, boy."

So when Dougles began developing the potential for magic, he found a way out of a life of servitude. Learning magic though stolen books, he made his escape. Taking the all the possessions of the lord’s vaults with him. He set out to gain as much money as possible.

His gifts for magic allowed him many advantages other merchants could only dream of. Capitalized on the use of deviation magic, allowing him to always having what the city he is in needs most, whether that is wheat or weapons, poison or drug doesn’t matter to him.

Some would say he follows war, disease, famine, and political strife like a vulture looking for a nice carcass to claim. What they don’t know is he has a hand in the conflict he supposedly follows. Assassinating ruler to incite wars, casting spells that decimating crops, acting as an information broker to both sides in a conflict. Dougles is known as a man who can get what you need to some, to other a monster who capitalizes on the suffering of others.

The lich know as Dougles Nye, prefers the title ”The Merchant of Death” for that shows just how much power money has earned him.
