Background[edit | edit source]
Though the black gemstone hanging from this thin bronze chain seems the obvious source of its power, the enchantment actually hides within the woven metal necklace, each miniscule sigil engraved to face into the weave. Even as the necklace's form obscures its strength, its function strengthens the obscure.
Once common among a secretive order of mystic spies and assassins in Stalwart, items such as this bestow speed in the vital moments following a first blow. Success became the assassins' undoing, when Regent Straydus Malia eradicated all traces of the order after employing them to eliminate her predecessor. That a periapt such as this survived is a testament to the school's capacity for subterfuge and resourcefulness.
