History: It's uncertain where this device originated, but it was believed
to have been around since the rise of the Italic Empire, as it was used by
Julius Caesar in a fight with ghouls during one of his military campaigns.
The knowledge of creating this device is known to many mages of the white
school and perhaps preistcraefters of Sunlight ethos as well, as well as
alchemist and heka-forgers out there. These devices can usually be
purchased in larger "magickal bizarre's" of AErth.
Description: This device appears as a small sphere, usually mundane in
appearance, and of any quality. However, the clay-like outer layer of the
sphere contains a sunstone gem, which is imbudded with Heka. Aural
analysis of the device will reveal heka of an Empyreal nature.
Powers: To use this devise, the caster must hurl the device, either by
hand (treat as rock) or by a sling or staff-sling (treat as a sling stone).
When it hits a hard surface with great force, a dweomer consumes the device
and projects an intensely bright flash of sunlight, lasting for 1 CT. All
those observing the flash within a 1 Chain Radius will be blinded for 2D3
CTs. However, an incredible blast of ultraviolet radiation is released as
well...those creatures susecptable to sunlight will take damage as if 1 AT
has passed, thus usually annihilating such creatures. Thus, the primary
power of this device is to harm undead and similar creatures.
Command: No Command Needed.
