Default Artefacts of Solcu

Still in my crusade to revive the project, this thread will allow the creators of Solcu (us) to imagine artefacts for our world. It could be an ancient technomagi lost since millennium, an antic and powerful weapon or more simply the Last Diaper of Emperor Tajar the Brainless.

As for today...

The Face of Horror :

The Face of Horror is, basically, the crown of the Kaaral. This ancient helmet wasn't created by the Kaaradi but, as the legend said, offered by the Monster-God Mandar'marli to the ancient hero Kor ra Ath when the Ath swore to uphold the Eternal Vigil. The quality of this helmet is far beyond what mortal smiths can hope to achieve, and the metal used to craft it is unknown to the Kaaradi, even today : it is not bronze nor copper, no steel nor iron, not even vara, yet the Face of Terror is light to wear and extremely resilient. In itself, the Face looks like both a skull and a screaming face.

When the Kaaral wore the Face in war, it is said that an aura of pure Horror emanate from the helmet, which allow the Kaaral to get an edge against even Those from Below. Only the abominations from the Realm of Terror or the Undeads seem to be immune to the helm's effects.

The Face is highly revered by the Kaaradi and his protected, when not worn, by no less than six Vara'Gol.

Nagaraja & Nagini

This pair of large, alabaster cobras are believed to have been born from the same clutch - making them siblings. Able to stand as tall as a full grown man when angered, and oddly indifferent to the world otherwise, the twin cobras most remarkable feature appears to be their longevity.

Nagaraja and his sister, Nagini, are believed to have been alive forever.

Being the property always of the current ruler of Abydos, the twin cobras crawl freely through the imperial palace, being fed by caretakers and being otherwise indifferent to the Asha and their praise. They possess luminous, alabaster skin that appears to glow in the dark skies of the cavernous continent.

Some believe that the twin snakes are the offspring of the Suran god Vritra Apepophis Sura - hatchlings who survived the Immortal Wars between the Asha, Amesha, Ashari, Dwarves and Kaaradi against the gods of Duat. That, they say, would be the only explanation for their longevity.

The snakes are recorded as having been in Shambala as far back as the founding of Abydos, pre-dating the end of the Age of Mythology.

The thing about words is that meanings can twist just like a snake, and if you want to find snakes look for them behind words that have changed their meaning.

No one ever said elves are nice.
Elves are bad.

Living artefacts ! I find it tasty !

But here's a funny one.

The Strange Pipe of Leibermann Schlaussivk :

Leibermann Schlaussivk was an eccentric Wind Elf, inhabiting a secluded manor in the Steilenland Duchy, centuries prior to the Little Wars. A great magician and a wise elf, Leibermann was also known for his odd behaviour : he was persuaded that fire magic was enhanced when he wore only red, orange or yellow clothes, while natural magic was best practised naked in the wood than clothed in a park.

Among his numerous creation, his most famous is know as the Strange Pipe of Leibermann Schlaussivk. This pipe, sculpted so its foyer would looks like Mohira's head and the rest of the pipe as her voluptuous body, was created with the wood of an Ebon Tree from Jebrak, enchanted by powerful spells of durability by Leibermann. If it was its only characteristics, this pipe wouldn't have become legendary.

But when Leibermann smoked with it, he was lost in strange daydreams and delusion of grandeur. While, during a time, his dreams served him, allowing him to understand old knowledge and discover new theories concerning magic, the pipe led him to a grim end. As years passed, he became more and more strange, until his death, under the three full moons, when he tried to "summon the Lady from the Three Jewels" and ended killing himself in a disastrous explosion of magic, which burned the land on a 500 meters radius with Leibermann at the centre, dead but unburned, his pipe in his hand.

Since that time, the Schlaussivk family have sell the Pipe to unwise scholars and wizards, but everytime that the three moons are full in the same night, the Strange Pipe his once again in the hand of a family member who'll try to summon the Lady from the Three Jewels and will end as Leibermann, even if there isn't as much burned land at each attempt.

I love your liebermann's pipe! He sound like the stereotypical schwarzkronen nobleman who've dipped closer to insanity than genius. Though i wouldn't call him wise when you consider his foolish notion of clothing having anything to do with fire magic and the risk he took with making a pipe in the image of mohira the trickster who is very fickle with her blessings and curses which brought his doom.
I can really see him in my mind, clad in reddish robes with a huge stylish inc black mustasche. Most elves of of steilenland hail originally from westland and they're just as extravagant.

The Sword of a Thousand Murders :

The Sword of a Thousand Murders (Sen no ken satsujin, or 千の剣殺人) is a powerful weapon from the Kingdom of Thama (the former colonies of Täjara on the eastern side of Duraleka). The Sword was forged during the Second Brethren War by the Heirs. Imbued with the power of lightning and spells of durability and strength, the Sword of a Thousand Murders could have become a weapon of legend for good. Alas, when the Heirs attacked the small town of Chunjashima, the wielder of the Sword, Otori Yamawoshi ordered than the prisoners where put in rank, and he killed them all, the thousand of them, old people, children and pregnant women alike. But, unknown to all the people present, the Kami of the Heirs couldn't bear the weight of such a crime and only the most bloodthirsty would have help Yamawoshi.

In fact, the Sword was cursed so it would bring its wielder in a bloody frenzy both on and outside the battlefield, thus leading to them being killed by their own men more often than not. Nonetheless, the Heirs still used the Sword of a Thousand Murders during all the wars. When the Dragons finally claimed the control of the former colonies and created the Kingdom of Thama, they sealed the Sword, and then offered it to the monks, hoping that the cursed blade could be purified. Alas, the Sword remain cursed, and as of today, only the most desperate or pure would dare the wield the Sword, the former succumbing to its curse, the latter managing to retain their sanity. It must be noted that it is strictly forbidden to lend the Sword to the Shensin no Akuma (Warrior Devils) , known for their bloody behaviour.

This blade is actually he property of Sotoshi Susuke, the Head Monk of the Kami no kenmei sa (The Wisdom of Gods), one of the three orders of Monk in Thama.
