Silt and Sun
Obsidian is a powerful conduit for both arcane magic and psionic ability, a reason why it is coveted by the Sorceror-Kings. They use it to channel powerful rituals and destructive spells. Normally mined out by slaves for the sole use of the Sorceror-Kings, anyone who is found in possession of an Obsidian Orb by the Sorceror-Kings are hunted mercilessly. Still there are a few who use the Orbs, are able to stay out of sight of the Sorceror-Kings’ jealous glare, and pay good money for usuable orbs, no matter the size.
