Brancariad – The Star Stone

   The Star Stone was one of Brancariad’s primary magical tools – a magical “computer” that could manipulate spiritual and stellar energies in a variety of ways. In general, it allows the user to detect and communicate with spirits, to tap into their powers to slowly build up some major spells (the triggered aid function; this allows the user to set up a massive triggered “aid” effect to a single magical power, which is then expended as a single spell). Sadly, the user only got to freely select one such spell, the spirits selected another, and the user and the spirits could consult on a third – although the final decision was up to the spirits/game master. Finally, the Star Stone can directly channel stellar energies, although doing so was a tremendous drain on it’s energies.
