Lament

The Erenel site is undergoing major changes and lore updates. Please note only articles listed in the Gamingbrew Discord are finalized. All other articles should be considered outdated lore.
If you happen upon a Lament glowing bright like the stars at days end, you hold onto it tight you hear. That hunk of a lost god will be worth a couple platinum denars at least in Krov. Course that means you need to harvest it first and there be no tellin' what monster has taken a likin' to the crystal's shine.
— Krovian Merchant
 
When A'Madoon sacrificed his celestial body, pieces of the Architect fell like rain from the heavens and coalesced into a crystal-like state of arcane energy. His children present to witness the event would name these crystals Laments, or Creator's Tear, for it appeared as if Al'Madoon wept in grief as they fell.   As Erenel moved into the Era of the Inner Flame and spellcasters began to master the art of tethering, these crystallized fonts of power awakened. When held by someone who has recently tethered into the bond, the crystal will glow brightly, and a faint shimmer of Al'Madoon's essence can be seen swirling inside.

Material Characteristics

These chromatic crystals filled with arcane energy can vary in size and shape. The quality of the lament is the most critical characteristic harvesters take into consideration during extraction. A broken lament projects a fading aura resembling the setting sun. However, an intact radiant lament pulses strong arcane energy, causing your arm's hair to stand.   When a harvester happens upon a radiant lament, precautions must be taken. Pulsing arcane energy attracts wildlife and infuses them with varying characteristics and attributes. For example, Archmage Wuten of the Royal College once stumbled upon a lustrous lament. To his surprise, a kaleidoscope of butterflies rested on the lament and had gained the ability to speak. Both the lustrous lament and awakened butterflies currently reside at the Royal College.
