Items and Materials

This is a page for all of BTACD's unique items and weapons, materials and metals, from common items such as the Soulgem, to one of a kind weapons, like the Yarblade of Linath.


Common Items

These items can be found anywhere IC, without having to buy them or win them in an event; they can pop up anywhere IC, though their rarities are somewhat more vast when compared to shop items and those won in site events.

Onyx Faction Gem::

Rarity: common
Class: available IC
Description: The rune-marked pendant held by leading members of the Onyx Faction. If a leader is found without this gem, their respective superiors will generally hunt them down and kill them for insubordination.

Ruby Faction Gem::

Rarity: common
Class: available IC
Description: The rune-marked pendant held by leading members of the Ruby Faction. If a leader is found without this gem, their respective superiors will generally hunt them down and kill them for insubordination.

Runeblade::

Rarity: uncommon
Class: available IC
Description: A runeblade is a sword - or other weapon - endowed with specific magical runes. Most often, they have kv'naer runes set along the metal, weaving spells that are activated when the sword is used in battle. Others may use other types of runeworking, and may have much darker effects.

Soulgem::

Rarity: uncommon/rare
Class: available IC
Description: A rare gemstone formed of the solidified, hardened and complete essence of a soul. Generally, these Soulgems will be no bigger than an inch and a half in diameter, and are colored the same as their original host's aura. Condensing a living soul into a Gem is considered a forbidden, dark magic, as it often leads to the victim's death.

Spirit-Weapon::

Rarity: uncommon
Class: available IC
Description: A special class of weapon thought to have initially been concepted by the Spirit Kings; these are unique swords, knives, bows or other such instruments fused with the spirit of one who's departed. May be made in a variety of ways, and power can vary depending on how strong the soul within was in life.

Xaeri Spirit-Weapon::

Rarity: uncommon
Class: available IC
Description: A much rarer variant of spirit-weapon tied to the Realm of Xaeri. These weapons were once guardians of Xaeri, and each one has ties to a specific landmark there - when the weapon is destroyed, the landmark in Xaeri begins to degrade and die. All Xaeri spirit weapons have two unique forms, usually one animalistic, and one humanoid.

Uncommon Items

These items are bought in the Shop, on the forum. Sometimes, these will rarely be available as event prizes. Please remember that these are IC items, and none of the items related to character species, abilities, etc are located here!

Please note that these are just items created by the admins! Player-shop items are not shown here unless officially accepted and given away by the staff. If you want to make your own unique item, trinket or weapon, go right ahead!

Fermyntia::

Rarity: exceptionally uncommon
Class: store-bought
Description: The Fermyntia is a prism-like gemstone that focuses the holder's reiatsu into a physical manifestation of their mindbeast. As long as the bearer retains contact of the jewel, their mindbeast will be summoned to their side, able to move about as a living beast at its master's command. It's also said to grant access to the mindscape, but how, no-one knows.

Leartes' Tears::

Rarity: very uncommon
Class: store-bought
Description: Said to be frozen god tears, they come in two varieties; Blessed and Cursed. It's said that drinking of a Tear will bestow one of the two. They are about the size of a woman's fist, completely opaque when frozen and only thaw in the presence of a desert dragon's fire. When thawed, one kind will have a faint bluish tint, the other green, but it's long been forgotten which is which.

Linath's Feather::

Rarity: very uncommon
Class: store-bought
Description: Shed feathers from Linath's wings; they're very small, and very soft, about the size of a man's thumb. Each feather is said to protect against unholy curses and grant true sight able to penetrate any illusion; they're also said to protect against poisons, venoms and harmful gases.

Phoenix Tear::

Rarity: uncommon
Class: store-bought
Description: The Phoenix Tears are the frozen, jewellike tears shed by a mortally wounded phoenix. Crystallized upon being shed, they're about the size of a bird's egg, though this varies phoenix to phoenix. These gems come in pairs, and are a rich, deep red once bonded to a particular pair of beings. They allow contact over long distances, even between Realms, and flare with light when one of the pair's bearers is wounded or in grave danger. Each one's light will be brighter according to the injury's severity. They lose color completely when one of a pair has died, or the jewel is destroyed.

Scale of Dhath::

Rarity: exceptionally uncommon
Class: store-bought
Description: A scale from Dhath himself, the god of darkness and leader of the Dark Five. It has the ability to grant nearly any wish, at great cost - the greater the wish, the greater the cost will be. As such, too large a wish may cost the user's life, and some may be too vast to fulfill with a single soul's sacrifice. As the Scale only affects the holder, things like the genocide of an entire race, or killing a individual or number of individuals, is impossible. Likewise, reversing the wish is impossible, as the Scale can only be used a single time.

Scale of Time::

Rarity: exceptionally uncommon
Class: store-bought
Description: Time's Scale is a jewel like no other; comprised of one of the god's multicolored scales, ever-changing in hue, and exceptionally powerful. Has the ability to bypass portals and Markers, traveling between Realms just like a god or Ether Spirit.

Scylla's Breath::

Rarity: uncommon
Class: store-bought
Description: A gemstone with wind swirling inside of its hollow, glasslike surface. Has the ability to change the weather if concentrated upon; but if used more than three times, the gemstone will shatter and will be rendered useless.

Spirit Gem::

Rarity: uncommon
Class: store-bought
Description: Not to be confused with a Soulgem. Also sometimes called a Spiritstone or Soultrap, it is a gemstone that is much like a fusion of energy-storing jewel and Soulgem. When its possesser dies - most often in the middle of using that energy - part of their soul is trapped within the gem. One can then take this gem, access it with their mind, and speak to the one soul that it's connected to. Varying degrees of strength dictate how much energy is used, and how the gem is used; weaker minds can only talk, where stronger minds can actually summon the spirit temporarily in the living Realms. The spirit connected to this gem has no guarantee of answering; sometimes, they may not respond at all.

Beads of Ice::

Rarity: rare
Class: event item

Rarity: rare
Class: event item
Description: Shattered fragments of bones kept in a small vial.

If weakened enough, they may die, though the effect varies by individual.

Bonebreaker Skull::

Rarity: ultra rare
Class: event item
Description: Dragon skull that grants the user necromantic abilities, and the power to control the wayward undead. Also grants the ability to talk to lost souls, and see ghosts. The Bonebreaker was said to be a dragon mage of great power, who's first kill was a dragon itself; this is the result of his workings. Can be reactivated, when the magic runs dry, by coating the skull in dragon's blood.

Gem of Naerex::

Rarity: rare
Class: event item
Description: Also known as the 'Skygems', these round gemstones somewhat resemble Soulgems in their color and size.

Often fashioned into pendants, though some are held and used in-hand.

Hell's Ritual Skull::

Rarity: very rare
Class: event item
Description: Skull fashioned into the shape of a hellhound's. It's said to grant special access to the Spirit Realms, as well as the ability to bypass portals like an Ether.

Hard to destroy, though magical energy may be drained, unable to be refilled.

Description: A slender lock cut from the mane of Gurthril in her horse Aspect. Has the ability to cast grand illusions and glamours, usually on oneself.

Scrying Shells::

Rarity: rare
Class: event item
Description: A gathering of seashells, pilfered from a several young Yorijian dragons' first hunts. Enchanted to show images of other places and persons when placed in a bowl of water, or larger shells are filled with liquid - the images show up on the water's surface, and the time that each stays for depends on the magic infused within each shell.

Sealing Necklace::

Rarity: rare
Class: event item
Description: A necklace fashioned from small bones shaped into beads, and small, curved claws. Each bead can be carved with a kv'naer rune, and a specific sealing spell attached - once placed on the victim, this spell will activate. It can do anything from make the wearer become a slave to the carver of the runes, to forcing the wearer to do a specific task or set of tasks. Difficult to take off or destroy.

Metals

All of BTACD's unique and fantasy metals, examples, and their descriptions, rarity, and origin can be found here!

Darksteel

Forged steel darkened to very dark grey or black metal. This darkened metal is highly resistant to corrosion, and sharp edges crafted from darksteel are reputed to never lose their edge, no matter how strenuously they are used. The dark look to the steel comes from a special oil infused into the metal during forging, the composition of which is known only to a select number of smiths.
Rarity:: Fairly rare due to the expense of forging it. Origin:: First produced by blacksmiths in Millirand, long ago, and only available from the greatest of smiths.

Divine Metal

A variant of mithril created by the Halgian people. It's worked at a much higher temperature, and infused with the blacksmith's spells of light. Often infused with enchantments of protection and safety, and said to be blessed by the Ethers. It has a white, pearly substance to it, is highly reflective, and seems to glow even in the darkest of places.
Rarity:: very rare. Origin:: the Halgian Empire.

Dragonsung Steel

Metal that is woven through magical means, and not crafted, by any who have control over metal. Tends to be hardened far past the norm, and can be inlaid with intricate designs and decorated, depending on the metalweaver's skill. Called 'dragonsung' for the first blacksmith who wove it - a dragon who literally sang his metal into shapes, crafting some of the strongest weapons known in this world.
Rarity:: Uncommon. Origin:: Millirand.

Gemsteel

A variant of metal that ties steel, silver, and any sort of gemstone together - sometimes, multiple gems may be used. It's crafted through a mixture of traditional smelting and magic, and forms a strong, light metal that gleams with a tint of different colors, depending on what gem or gems were used. Often made in Kurai, in ceremonial battle-armor for War samurai.
Rarity:: Uncommon. Origin:: Kurai.

Mithril

A silvery metal, harder and lighter than steel. Weapons and armor crafted from mithril are widely held to be some of the finest available due to their light weight and great durability. As hard as it is, mithril is hard to mine, and to forge, as it takes a very hot flame to soften it up for refining and forging.
Rarity:: Very rare. Origin:: Deep in some mountains, far underground.

Mythmetal

Incredibly rare and very beautiful, mythmetal is the purest form of metal, crafted by mythkin from the purest ore within the earth. Very few of other species may attempt to create mythmetal, and the knowledge of its making is a closely-held secret. It's known to have an iridescence like oil, otherwise very light in color.
Rarity:: Very rare. Origin:: Unknown.

Materials

This includes BTACD-specific materials, like original fabrics, woods, and other such things.

Sikrin

A rare wood found in places with high magical content. As a tree, it is small and twisted, resembling a large bonsai tree with black bark and white leaves. The wood within is dark as well, shot through with veins of cream. Sikrin has a variety of uses. Sound conducts in a unique way through it, and musical instruments such as flutes, lutes, or violins that are carved from it often have a clear, beautiful sound. Furthermore, running a current of magical energy through it will cause it to draw other materials to it and in turn pull the metal towards that material, based on the kind of magic used. For example, someone who uses fire magic can cause flames to bend towards a sikrin wand, or someone with water magic might use it as a dowsing rod to locate groundwater.
Rarity:: Relatively rare. Origin:: Any realm, but only in areas that have a high instance of natural magic.

Vilam

A soft, light, very durable fabric invented by the elves. Silky and smooth to the touch, and able to be dyed with any shade of color imaginable, the fabric is weaved from silk harvested from a very rare plant grown in specially tended gardens, as pure vilam plants are hard to come by in the wild. The elves zealously guard the secret of the fabric from outsiders.
Rarity:: Rare. Origin:: Created by the high elves, and found with merchants to sell in their beautiful cities.
