Black Ice[]


A black stone as smooth as glass. It seems translucent at first flance, a trick of the eye caused it to look darker the longer you squint at it, as if the stone drinks in light.


  • Found in the Spine of the World, at the location of the long destoryed Cryshal-Tirigth (a crystal tower errectred by Akar Kessell long ago) 
  • Forged from the same essence of the evil Crystal Shard, the Ice carries traces of the shard's taint.
  • The taint slowly corrupts anyone who comes into possession of it. Although the effect is more pronounced in those who have more contact with the substance 
  • Can be forged like stone
  • Baerick is selling trinkets to Ten-Town with the guide of Kessell
