The Piece of Wood
OriginsThe piece of wood's origins are unknown, but legends claim that it is a chip from the handle of the grim reaper's scythe, granting those in possession of the wood the ability to hide from the reapers strikes, and live forever. Whether or not this story is true is unimportant, because at the end of the day, those who die while in possession of the piece of wood find themselves resurrected a day later. Legends and rumors surrounding the piece of wood permeate throughout history, with many fakes appearing along the way. But for those who know the true, who have borne witness to the greatness of the piece of wood, know the unlimited possibilities of eternal immortality and the inability to stay dead. Perhaps the piece of wood is an old artifact designed to cast resurrection upon a corpse 24 hours after its death, or perhaps it's a key through the outer planes, allowing a soul to return to its body after a journey through the afterlife. All that matters at the end of the day though, is the fact that you're not dead.
