You ingest the soul of a sentient creature that has been dead for not more than 1 minute. This creates a gem: A Fine Sized object with 1hp and Hardness 2. Destroying the Gem frees the soul within, but doesn’t restore the being to life. Any attempt to resurect a being whose soul is so trapped must beat a DC of 10 + 1/2 Caster Level + Prime Modifier (Int, Wis, or Cha) to restore the being to life. Failure results in the failure of the ressurection spell, but success shatters the Gem and allows the ressurection to happen normally. If the Soul Gem is in a unholy location, the difficulty is increased by 2. The caster (as an Evil Act), or any Evil outsider may consume the Gem to gain fast healing 2 for a number of rounds equal to it’s HD – This consigns the soul to Abbadon: The Domain of the Devourer.
2) Weapons fashioned from Arcanium count as
adamantine having a natural ability to bypass hardness
when sundering weapons or attacking objects, ignoring
hardness less than 15; which while inferior to true adamantine, is still quite impressive!
Arcanium resonates with the energies around it, glowing blue in high manaflux areas, and red in high electromagnetic areas; it sheds light like a torch when in these areas, and merely glimmers a soft violet in balanced areas…
Educe bound the essence of three Cacoarchaeons into a trio of stone weapons carved from mithral ore using his expertise in Stonework. He then combined his powers with Sonya Vortex, and Bryar Fox to steep the stonework icons in their arcane energies. Finalizing the enchantments using his last wish from Vulkarcash the stone implements of death were transformed into Arcanium (an artificial form of Adamantium). The Soul Gem Battlesword was entrusted to Sonya Vortex as her new sidearm, The Soul Gem Battlemace was kept by Bryar Fox as her sacred arm, and the Soul Gem Battleaxe was kept by Educe to be granted to THE WARLORD when he produced a new body from his dark flesh…
