Mask of the Emerald Cleric
Level 1 Green Jade Mask

The Clerics of the Cult of the Dual Monarchy are easy to spot, thanks to the masques that they wear. Each color stands for a different faction which a Cleric could be part of; green, in particular, marked one of the diplomats of the Cult. When worn, this mask allows its wearer to perceive, partake in and store the Essence of the Underworld; the user can learn the charms of the Essence-Measuring Thief Art Arcanoi as a ghost.

Spectre's Talons
Pair of Level 1 Baneclaws

Created from a pair of spectre 'lovers' that tormented one of the outlying cities on the Isle of Stygia, this set of baneclaws have seen much ichor and blood over the centuries, both before and after their forging. Most recently, they have found themselves in the hands of a Daybreak by the name of Sanguine Maiden of the Silent Stars…which is merely the face that a Secrets named Yamika Arali takes on when she has business in the City of the Dead. The large sais, formed into the taloned claws of the twisted ghosts that so kindly offered themselves to be soulforged, each have a hearthstone setting, but no additional benefit.


Quiet Solace
Level 3 Abyssal Manse

Quiet Solace is a manse located in the countryside south of Stygia, roughly correlating to the location of the Palace Sublime on the Blessed Isle. It is a vacation home of sorts for members of the Cult of the Dual Monarch, a place they come to relax. Although the hearthstone is used by a number of the priests, the 'Abyssal' known as the Sanguine Maiden of the Silent Stars uses it while she is in the Underworld by request of the Monarchs themselves.

The Viewing Pools
Level 3 Sidereal Manse

While the manse itself is a relatively modest building in one of the nicer parts of Yu-Shan, the name for the manse comes from the central room of the building. Here, a large pool sits under a circular opening in the atrium ceiling, surrounded by a tile mural depicting the various constellations. No matter the sky above, the pool shows the stars of Creation in their current configuration. The heartstone for the manse forms in a small pedestal in the center of the pool. It's current owner, Yamika Arali, is only there half the year, but she makes ample use of the pool when there.

Personal Information


Yamika Arali is a rather frail-looking woman, her ghostly ancestry evident in her lithe form, pale skin and dark black hair. Her eyes are a green so dark they're nearly black, flecked with silver sparks. Whether in Yu-Shan or Stygia, she wears black robes with green embroidery accenting it, snaking up the robes like smoke from an incense burner. While in Creation, she wears whatever is needed for the mission at hand.
