Lapidary occult

Post by Spearman » Mon Oct 14, 2019 2:33 pm

I've long wanted a cool rune/lapidary system in CLOK/Som/COGG...

The way I envision it is have an adept miner find you a nice cabochon of [precious gemstone]. A skilled gemsmith cuts it and polishes it (with an option to mount it in a blacksmith/silversmith-made setting to make it wearable). Then a spooky occultist carves one of many runes into the piece endowing it with special properties. Runes I have envisioned are:

Fehu - luck charm, increases the payout of items sold at the market
Raido - travel-stamina booster
Sowilo - stone lights up, providing light for the room
Gebo - turns gem to fruit to be consumed
Tiwaz - gem explodes causing harm to all in the room (think red crystals in old school Gemstone III)
Jera - post the gem on a farm and it boosts plant harvests
Opala - allows the user to hide the gem and WATCH remotely to see things going on in the room
