Constructed Mythology

All of these items have some relevance to the working of magic in Kintaria. Some have been former possessions of gods and goddesses while some haven't.


Crystals can be used to either store power or to focus it. Different crystals have different properties or powers within them. These properties can be as varied as each crystal. Certain crystals contain their own power in addition to whatever the user puts into them.

Powered Crystals[]

  • Emerald - Healing
  • Ruby - Fire
  • Sapphire - Water
  • Topaz - Light

Staves and Wands[]

Staves and wands are mainly used, like crystals, for channeling or storing power. Certain woods work better than others for storing power or channeling it; although the choice of woods is ultimately up to the user. Often power is imbued upon the actual staff or wand through runes that enable anyone who picks it up to wield said power. Wans are normally much smaller and thinner than the average staff.
