Interpreting Languages Chair

“Sitting in this chair for the first time, I could understand the language of the man-beasts before me. What we once presumed was growls and snarls hid a rich and detailed method of talking. The words changed depending on so many factors, the position of the head, the social rank of both the speaker and the listening. It was incredibly complex and very old. I had no idea. They viewed us as linguistic children, but still were willing to forgive us for our errors. It turns out we were killing their children-eggs by polluting their waters. This is something I could fix and because of the chair, I knew just how to let them know this.”

Eye of Explosive Light

“I was the last one to see, hah, the eye in action. It was incredible, the light was mesmerizing. Then he unleashed its power. All of it at once. By the grace of the gods I was far enough away to not be seriously harmed but the explosion was like the birth of a demon made of light”. I was blinded for days. When my vision returned,¬†I went back to the battle site. All that was left was a massive crater. No living soul remained, only their gear and equipment. At the bottom of the crater was the eye and nothing else.”

Shape-change Gauntlet

“She just snarled at me with contempt, mocking me, threatening to finally kill me once and for all. I had only the gauntlet left. The sage told me of its power, but I had never used it, there was no¬†real need. I quietly slipped my hand into the gauntlet and before she could strike, raised my hand and pointed at her as I had been instructed. The fingertip quickly glowed and a blue-grey light engulfed her as she got close. When the light faded, before me was a large goat with a rather shocked expression on its face.”

Albedo’s Surgical Scissors

“The arrow was in deep, too deep. If it was pulled out it would do a lot of damage, but it could not be left in there. The only choice was to cut it out. Luckily for the patient, my mentor Albedo, had gifted me his enchanted surgical scissors. Placing them against the wound the scissors begun to work on their own, cutting the flesh around the projectile, the patient was in no pain, in fact, they seemed to relax. The arrow-head was loose and could be removed. The flesh had grown back a small amount, enough to help us close the wound.”
