Legacy of Battle
Ixian Relics vary from the mundane to items holding a residual essence of the magics used in the Varisian War. Forts, small towns and sites of battle that existed on the once wasted lands, still hold some of the items left over from the end of the war, those areas that remained intact. The northern reaches of the Kingdom of Strell make a good bit of profit by dealing in the items brought back from the wastes of Ixia. These items are all the more exotic and expensive in the southern kingdoms.
Examples of Ixian Relics include weapons, both magically touched and simply worn by time or the appearance changed by the magic and storms, pottery, furniture, trinkets, clothing, etc.
One such discovery was of special stones, coined Flame Stones, by the first group returning with a sampling of them. These stones were originally common quarts, but the Flame Stones are veins of quartz touched by the magic of the area and within, one can see a flame dancing. They are most spectacular to behold at night, for they flicker and glow clearly, though not enough for any source of light. They have been found in three varieties: red, the most common and lasting as long as several years; green, a very uncommon find and shorter lasting than the red, typically a few years; and blue, which is the most rare and lasts at most a year or so. Flame Stones are simply aesthetic items that the wealthy are want to purchase. While they are touched by the residual magic of Ixia, they do not last. Eventually, their flickering flame fades and then vanishes.
