Love’s Last Cries
These crystalline teardrops, arranged on a simple chain, carry the light of a thousand loves, and the weight of a thousand losses. They have no power in the hands of those who have not known both.
If displayed openly, Love’s Last Cries glow with light as the Cleric Light rote.
When you display the teardrops openly and defend something or someone dear to you, gain an additional hold, whether your defend was successful or not.
When you irrevocably lose something or someone truly dear to your heart gain three hold. Spend one hold to gain +2 against the source of your loss.
When you willingly sacrifice your life to avenge or defend something or someone dear to your heart, you forgo your Last Breath and make one extremely powerful move. Perhaps a spell has its effects and targets doubled, perhaps your attack strikes true to the heart of a great beast; the exact effects can never be certain beforehand.
“The undead host approached the capital, for we had nothing left to stop them with. But Lady Arienne cried for the lost people of the kingdom; she cried for her son, the crown-prince, lost in hopeless battle; she cried for innocence lost. The skies opened, and when we could see again, the unholy horde was cinders and dust, and of our beloved queen, nothing remained.”
