Sigil Emporium – Time’s Hourglass

They say that time waits for no man, but those who say this do not have Time’s Hourglass. No magus or sage has ever discovered the Hourglass’s origins, but even a layman can see that there is something mythical and arcane about the Hourglass. As simple as its wooden frame is, the glittering black sand within is mesmerising as it never stops flowing, no matter how much time has passed. For each second that passes, one grain of sand falls from the upper chamber to the lower. It is much more than a pretty trinket, however, as everyone who touches it soon discovers. Whenever the hourglass is turned over, events flow

Sigil Emporium – Warding Blade

Forged in a forgotten age by master smiths who could pull strands of the aether directly into the molten metal they were shaping. The Warding Blade was intended for their rangers and wardens who would delve into the wilderness far from the glorious civilisation that spawned these blades.

A Garm is first and foremost a hunting dog, able to track man or beast wherever they go. So grand is his nose, stong perfumes an awful odours can have him mewling like a pup. If this does not put him

Sigil Bestiary – Hag

Hags are misanthropic and spiteful crones that love nothing better than to be left alone to their devices, and to torture and curse those that refuse to do so. Children are taught from a young age not to intrude on a Hag’s domain and leave the deep dark forests well enough alone. Those that disobey rarely make it back, and the unlucky few that walk trembling out of the forest are never the same again. They say a Hag can steal your luck, if she doesn’t simply eat you alive, leaving you a cursed life of misfortune and ruin. The only way to undo this, and to best a Hag in
