A nevertoken was an enchanted item developed as trading tokens for Halruann families before later being adopted as badges of recognition carried by members of the Soft Claws, given to them by the dragon Zundaerazylym.
Description[edit | edit source]
Zundaerazylym's nevertokens were identical, smooth, glossy, silver-blue metal stars with four blunted points, about 1 inch (2.5 centimeters) thick and 4 inches (10 centimeters) across. They were relatively light. They had a tiny hole in the center to allow a chain or strap to be tied around them. They were made of some unknown durable alloy. When they broke, they usually burst into flames and crumbled to dust within seconds. They produced a pleasant sound and a particular chord when struck, which was one way to identify whether they were authentic.
Powers[edit | edit source]
Their powers functioned when they were held in one's bare hand and willed into action, but one must already know what their powers were. Known powers included:
- Drawmij's instant summons
- feather fall
- mind blank
- pass without trace
- sovereign succor
- teleport without error
- trace nevertoken
History[edit | edit source]
Their origins were unknown, and creating new ones would probably require extensive experimentation. They were previously Halruann family trading tokens, and many early Halruann families owned similar items, though newer families did not. Zundaerazylym was given a cache of more than a hundred of them in Year of the Watching Cold, 1320 DR by Ensible Mritavvalan, the dying last member of their family.
