Water or Blood
The Sandstone Shield
These relics dating from long before the conquest, look like simple large stone altars, but strapped to be worn as shields (+1 bonus), they are coated with etchings of old Maarish runes. They are nearly weightless to anyone who has made a sacrifice on it, and provide their bearers a depth of strength, unknown to normal men.
The shields have a Strength Token pool that bearer can draw on, it can only be replenished by blood sacrifices (see Blood Magic). The token pool is maxed at four, and each token can be spent to add 1d10 to any strength based roll.
