Io's Blood Reliquary


This ruby capped crystal vial contains a droplet of silvery red blood collected from that spilled by the Concordant Dragon as he fought Ulban in the Cataclysm. The drinker of this ichor taps into Io’s ancient strength.

The single droplet of the blood that the reliquary contains allows it to function as a +2 holy symbol or magic rod. When awakened by the presence of divine power, the droplet multiplies filling the vial.
