A Chunk of Fantasy 2.05 – Lamp of Carthas [Artefact]

A Chunk of Fantasy 2.05 – Lamp of Carthas [Artefact]

“Behold, ye who speaks the sacred chant will find their way, your foes shall not approach and yea shall find tranquillity. Beware lest the oil run dry, for the lamp will draw on thy life force and turn you into that which you fear…”
Scroll IX of the Legendary Items of Franner collection.

The Lamp of Carthas is an old, very old artefact. A few stories say it was the first made during the Great Mage War, but this cannot be proven one way or another. The lamp gets its name from the first person that legends say possessed it, even though Carthas is recorded as saying it was never made by him, that he got it from someone else.

As with many artefacts from that era, the lamp itself is very unassuming to look at...

A Chunk of Fantasy 2.04 – Emerus, the flying city [Location]

A Chunk of Fantasy 2.04 – Emerus, the flying city [Location]

“I always liked this part…”
Imperial City-Pilot Commander Shamus, just before Emerus takes off.

Emerus is considered to be the shining jewel in the Imperial Engineer empire. Although not the largest or most fortified settlement – that honour lies with the capital – Emerus is a marvel to behold as it lies overhead. For you see, Emerus is a flying city. Built towards the end of the last mage war, when reports of those that worshipped the Fallen One possessed a flying city of their own, the Imperial Engineers were at first unbelieving, then afraid, then they saw it as a challenge or a goal.

Within a few months, the first proof of concept had been made...

A Chunk of Fantasy 2.03 Lava Canoe [Vehicle]

A Chunk of Fantasy 2.03 Lava Canoe [Vehicle]

“Yeah the name is a bit odd, it’s not strictly speaking for use on lava, but you can use it there. No, what this beauty was designed for is in those weird places between the planes, where the cross over with each other. Quasi-something or other. Anyway, this one, meant to be used on the bit where the plane of fire meets the plane of earth. All that heat from the Fire Realm combined with the, well I suppose liquid, makes normal water there evaporate, and there is that lava-like stuff instead. It’s pretty weird experience, using that canoe. Just don’t forget where you are, and by the 12 and 2, don’t get out until you have a safe location …”

Vehicle type – Travel/Exploration
Capacity – 2 to 4 depending on make and model

A Chunk of Fantasy 2.02 Spellstorm [Weather]

A Chunk of Fantasy 2.02 Spellstorm [Weather]

“It was our fault, we should have paid more attention to where we were. We knew being in The Bleed would cause issues for us, but Genki, our mage, told us the walls of reality are weaker here and the closer we get to the Great Barrier the better. It started so peacefully. Then the air went still. It was scary. We could all begin to feel the hair on our body stand up. Then we saw it moving over the horizon in our direction. We should have left then, but when it got close enough to see it was not a normal storm it was too late. It was homing in on it only Genki, but Marigold as well. It was beeing drawn towards our sources of magic. It was accelerating, we had to move, but then the first bolt erupted from the cloud…”

The Spellstorm, also called a ...

A Chunk of Fantasy 2.01 Dissipating Armour [Spell]

A Chunk of Fantasy 2.01 Dissipating Armour [Spell]

“Now young one, listen well. See the Bert over there? He’s a good friend of mine and offered to help me in teaching you this spell. The typical warrior is a deadly foe for us mages to go u against in combat. They have weapons, tactics and what else? Correct! They have armour. Bert is wearing some old armour we got for cheap for this purpose as I don’t want to ruin the set he normally wears. Watch carefully. See the way I move my hands as I utter the words. With the final gesture, I cast the spell towards Bert. Now it’ll take a few seconds to start working..see..his armour appears to be dissolving away like dust in wi…Bert by the gods, how many times have I told you to wear something under your armour!”

Spell Type – Armor/protection removal
