Sigil Emporium – The Corrupted Skull

The Corrupted Skull truly looks like it was taken from the body of demonic hellspawn. It has three eye-holes, twisted goat-like horns, teeth reminiscent of a canine predator, and runes and markings have beeb scrimshawed all over it. Simply looking at the Skull leaves one feeling uncomfortable, never mind holding it. However, if the stories are to be believed, the original owner of the Skull was a normal mortal man, who became corrupted by decades of dabblings in the dark arts and arcane mysteries of the aether. The deeper he delved into the dark oceans of the aether, the more his body changed until he looked more at home within those

Sigil Emporium – Necklace of Discordia

Vanity is a sin, yet humanity has not and seemingly will never learn that lesson. Once, so legend claims, the gods decided to make an example out of a beautiful queen and so teach all her subjects and everyone who would hear her tale of the dangers of pride and vanity. Unfortunately, it didn’t work. The Necklace of Discordia still passes from bloodied hand to bloodied hand, creating misfortune and strife wherever it goes. Yet, humanity simply cannot put it down, cannot leave it be, cannot stop themselves from using it. It’s allure is simply too strong.

Once it has found its new forever-home, it can be quite kind and helpful. It will keep the house in tip-top shape, tidying up, cleaning, making repairs, and even helping to defend the home against intruders. However, you must always respect a hob. Not treating

Sigil Emporium – Dripping Ring

Greed is a terrible thing. It can push a man to ambitious heights, but it robs him every step of the way up that mountain. With the accumulation of worldly goods comes the jealousy of hoarding them from others. It is not enough to have; you must make sure others never get it. A greedy man is a jealous man, and a jealous man is a paranoid man. A greedy man cannot trust and cannot be trusted. A greedy man stands alone with nothing but his wealth.

Sigil Bestiary – Wolf

More than any other creature (mundane or magical), it is the wolf that is man’s archenemy. It is the wolf that we fear in the dark; the wolf that makes us tread lightly in the wilderness and peer over our shoulders in the deep forests. The wolf represents everything that is cunningly brutal and brutally cunning. The wolf is the bestial reflection of man, of what we could have been had God not been as kind. Like us, the wolf is the master of his demesne. He is a pack animal, a tribal creature that works with his friends and family to dominate his environment and rule over everything that comes
