The Astraldrum is a mystical instrument used by Jhakari, practitioners of the arcane arts specializing in communing with spirits and manipulating ethereal energies. This unique drum serves several purposes:
  • Spirit Communication: The drum allows the Jhakari to communicate with spirits and entities from other realms. The rhythmic beats create a resonance that bridges the gap between the physical and ethereal planes, making it easier for spirits to manifest.
  • Possession Rituals: In certain rituals, the Jhakari can use the Astraldrum to facilitate controlled possession. By invoking the power of the drum and channeling the energy into a willing or pre-determined recipient, the Jhakari can allow a spirit to temporarily inhabit a living being and share its memories or experiences.
Overall, the Astraldrum is a versatile and powerful tool in the arsenal of a Jhakari, allowing them to navigate the realms between the living and the spirit world.

Raw materials & Components

Drum Frame: Crafted from enchanted wood known as Shadowbark, harvested from the Whispering Woods. The wood has unique properties that resonate with spiritual energies.   Drum Heads: Crafted from the essence-infused hides of ethereal beasts found in the Shadowrealm. These creatures possess a unique quality that allows their spectral hides to produce a resonant and haunting sound when stretched across the drum frame. The process of harvesting and preparing these hides involves skilled Jhakari working in collaboration with spirit guides to ensure a harmonious and ethical extraction of materials from the creatures of the ethereal plane. The resulting drum heads maintain a connection to the spiritual energies of the Shadowrealm, enabling the Jhakari to command and channel spirits during their rituals.   Spirit Stones: Embedded in the frame, these small, luminescent stones are attuned to the ethereal plane. They enhance the drum's ability to channel and amplify spiritual energies.   Runes of Command: Inscribed on the surface of the drum in arcane script. These runes enable the Jhakari to issue commands to spirits and facilitate the transfer of memories.   Binding Seals: Special sigils that prevent unintended possession or chaotic energy surges. They maintain a level of control over the ghostly entities invoked during the ritual.   Glowing Resonance Ink: Decorative patterns on the drum that glow softly when the Jhakari invokes its power. This ink is made from enchanted minerals found in regions with strong spiritual auras.
