Keystones

[rules]


Ki energy flows within the body, and this flow can be enhanced by physical contact with objects whose ki energy has been aligned to one of the seven chakras. While any object can be aligned, gemstones hold ki energy well and are easily aligned to a chakra, making them the preferred material for ki enhancement. Jewelers cut gems to produce this effect. These gems are commonly called keystones to differentiate them from ordinary gems


Aligning keystones

Each chakra can only be enhanced by one keystone at a time, and the keystone must be aligned to the chakra in order to provide the benefit. A keystone must be worn close to the body for at least 30 seconds before its benefits are activated. If the stone is removed or replaced, the benefits will fade after 30 seconds. If a stone is worn with an alignment to a chakra which is already activated, there is no effect. After aligning a keystone, you instinctively understand its function

Aligning a keystone to a chakra makes it immune to attempted ki bindings on the gem or stone itself, as the items ki is already actively bound. Keystones that are not aligned may be affected by bindings appropriate for their material. For gemstones, the appropriate binding is earth

Keystones can be placed in any item as long as they are worn close to the body. Some adventurers will place all of their stones in belts specially designed to hold the stones, with slots to hold the stones close to the skin. Keystones may also be worn in necklaces, rings, or even in clothing or shoes

These keystones can also be placed into weapons, providing the same benefits provided the weapon is held in the hand or worn on the body when not in use. Some effects are specifically meant to be placed in weapons and convey certain effects when successfully striking an opponent or ally

Not all gems and stones are well suited for alignment to the different chakras. Similarly, each type of stone is well suited to producing specific effects. Jewelers take this into consideration when choosing which combinations of effects and chakra alignments to instill in their creations. The tables below outline which combinations you can expect to find in your adventures

When a keystone is destroyed, its benefits immediately cease


Facets

Keystones have various attributes based on the cut of the gem. A jeweler cuts the gem to create a facet, instilling the desired attribute in the gem. A keystone can have up to six facets, and thus up to six attributes. Some attributes require multiple facets to produce their effect

Example
You have an Amber gem which you align to your Lotus chakra. You select the Blurring Speed attribute which requires two facets. You then select Tough Hide which requires one facet. You select this attribute four times to reduce incoming damage by 12 points. Selecting this attribute four times requires four facets. You have now cut all six facets of the Amber gem and can place no additional attributes on the gem


Creatures may receive the benefit of an attribute from multiple keystones, though the total power of an attribute may never exceed six facets

Example
You have an Amber and Topaz keystone, each which have Dexterous 2 on them which gives a +2 to your dexterity score. You align the Amber gem to your navel chakra and the Topaz gem to your lotus chakra, but the total benefit is still +3 dexterity, since the Dextrous attribute costs 2 facets and the cap is 6 facets

Cost
The table below outlines the average rate for keystones when they are cut from gemstone. When keystones are made from other materials, the cost increases by 10%-30%, depending on the value of the original material and how different it is from a gemstone

FacetsCost
1250g
2600g
31,100g
41,800g
52,750g
64,200g


Damaging keystones

Keystones embedded within other items take no damage from attacks targeting the outer item. The keystone itself can be the target of an attack, in which case it takes full damage regardless of surrounding material. If an enclosing item is destroyed, a keystone ceases to be aligned to its wearer, but may be realigned immediately. Keystones have 120 hit points


Binding stones

Binding stones are a particular cut of keystone which function completely differently from normal keystones. Binding stones allow an experienced ki user to automate and repeat a binding without the continued focus normally required. For each facet, the stone can store enough energy to maintain an average binding for about an hour. This energy must be provided by a creature capable of binding the corresponding element, and requires 1 minute per hour of energy stored. The stone can be cut to trigger a binding given simple conditions (below), though the stone has to be specifically cut to an exact condition. The binding is set by being performed once

Possible Conditions

  • Surrounding temperature changes
  • An exact temperature is reached
  • Timed delay
  • Timed pulse
  • Force vector is applied to the stone
  • Touched by a living creature
  • Hit by sunlight, moonlight, or starlight
  • Light hitting the stone is removed
  • Attempted ki binding on the stone
  • Ki binding on the stone is released
