Magical Monday: I’ve found another enchanted instrument! Who might use these and how?


For this week’s Magical Monday, I’ve found another wonderful magical tool, but don’t know exactly what it’s used for or who might own it. I need your help to decide.

I think this might be used by a very skilled wizard to collect energy from the sun or other stars. It is in receiving position as it is currently held. The top is fashioned like a prism, to bend rays and channel them downward into the housing of the device. There, the ancient rune transforms the raw celestial energy into magical power. When filled, the instrument is turned and the sorcerer holds it at the wide end of the rune. The smaller prism tip concentrates the power and casts laser-like fire at opponents. 

What do you think is the use of this magical item and who might use it?

There is a rockface honeycombed with holes. the crystal goes into them, and you turn it a given numnber of defreees in a clockwise or anto-clockwise direction, as if you were using a key to open a safe. Yo repeat the name of the rune like a mantra. Then you touch the tip to the object or person, and the energy from the crystal, of whichever kind you would have absorbed from the rockface, goes into them.

I think it helps you *fly*, or at least levitate to a different location. Just hold on and go.

@Tanja -- Great! Like a key to unlock a vast store of energy in the rock. Like it!

@Gerri -- That would be cool! Would love to do that. Hopefully, not shot at by enemies to make me lose my grip and fall.

I'd love to take a guess on this, but I'm completely at a loss. It's a beautiful item. I'm sure the crystals hold some magical power. I like your definition.

The round gem glows when energy collected into the wand is ready. The prisms are called "memory stones" and have the ability to collect thoughts, especially when tweaked by a mage's abilities. With the large portion placed on one's temple, it channels several moments of thoughts into the wand. A second user can take the wand, place the smaller end to his temple, and "view" the visions stored upon it.

Powerful shamans use it to channel their own energy into another person in order to heal them or restore balance.

Evil shamans can use it in reverse to steal another's life force ...

@Roseanne -- It is lovely, with the curve and decorative carving. Wish I owned one!

@Nick -- Memory crystals to transmit knowledge--very cool!

@Shea -- A device to channel life force for healing. That would be quite dangerous in the hands of evil!
