Relics of the Saints and Holy Ones

Saints are heroes of faith, those who performed deeds of renown in the name of their god. Saints have magical powers above and beyond normal and may grant magical aid beyond death.

Many saint objects look common but accessories, carrying cases or scabbards will be valuable artworks often covered in gems and gold worth hundreds of gold. Some encrust common objects in gold and precious stones.

  1. Cool stuff. I'm tempted to add variants of a few dozen of these to my Mog loot table.

    1. so mog is slang for cats in some parts of the world?
      MOG is just my current d&d house-ruled campaign.
      It's word a corruption of Gogmagog; biblical characters reinterpreted as celtic giants reskinned as the spirit of a science-fantasy D&D campaign seemed appropriate enough.

    2. mog or moggie = cat a slothmog is a sleepy cat

    3. sounds awesome - i remember reading about sf nephalim christian sf myth stuff now

  2. ah i just saw your post - the osr zietgiest calls!

  3. "Genitalia restores virginity 3/times a day" - Creepy but awesome :D

  4. saints in india offer girls sex on promise to restore virginity with holy powers

  5. Blessed Saints, thank you for your healing of my son's genogram, parents, grandparents, greatgrandparents, cleansing, deliverance protection (my nieces, nephews, godchild's family as well), Erich needs a powerful intercessor for bondages breaking and attacks of the devil.
