Magic Eight Ball
When Spider tries to blow into the whistle, the same thing happens; no sound comes out. Mahina chuckles. "I think it won't work at all during the day. If it is what I suspect, it is a Ghost Summoning Whistle. It takes three different blows to make the full magic work. The first is a simple call to all the ghosts within a five mile radius, letting them know that there is someone that wishes to speak with them. The second makes the call stronger, forcing less powerful spirits to come even if it is against their will. The third blow is even stronger than that, bringing stronger spirits to the one that sounded the Whistle. Once the Whistle has been blown three times, it will not work again until ten nights have passed. A word of warning about the Whistle; it does not make the spirits called bent to your will, and they can even be openly hostile to you."
The new bracers click into place on your wrists with an audible sound, and after you put 5 motes of Essence into them, their heavy weight seems to ease off, making them light to wear. Moving through the various katas of the Nightingale style, it almost feels like the bracers are making your movements even more fluid. Once you activate the Form Charm of the style, golden bands of light encircle you as the runes flare on the bracers, enhancing your movements with even more power.
OOC These are slightly modified Perfected Kata Bracers with a lower Commitment cost. They take 5m to attune, and once you activate your Form Charm, it adds your Essence to the accuracy, damage and defense of your unarmed attacks and of attacks made with the active Form-type Charm’s particular weapons. You may choose to inflict bashing or lethal damage at will and you may parry lethal attacks unarmed. In addition:
Orichalcum bracers let Solars inflict aggravated damage on creatures of darkness.
It was hard to explain. As tuned to his chi as he already was, he could feel it all the more clearly. Smooth like melting ice, and seemless as he made his stances and form. Even with his eyes closed he could feel which katas danced across the bracers. He could feel them align with his own chi, and it was as if his entire spiritual insides had just been lubricated. How special!
"Is that so? That could be very useful for us. I shall heed that warning. I do not wish to make any enemies of ghosts when we already have enough dead to deal with. However, Mahina, my power was given to me while the sun was at its zenith. As eccentric as I may be, it is the role of the Priest-King that the Unconquered Sun has trusted me to uphold. The dead will be hard pressed to not recognize that authority." Still, he did not want to press his luck. Just because he had the power to, did not mean he wanted to enslave spirits, as this whistle had likely been used to do in the hands of the Deathknights.
Finishing up his stances. He asked another question. "But I gave like three toots. Plus Spider's toots. Does that mean we can't use it for ten days now?"
