Dark Sun: The Scorched World of Athas
Crystal of Ebon Flame
This is a fist-sized, black, flame-shaped crystal that gives off a purplish light. Those who hold it hear whispers menacingly when grasped. These whispers offers power but warn of corruption.
The history of the Crystal of Ebon Flame is partially recorded in the Scrolls of the Sonlinor. This item is believed to have been created by Moradin near the end of the Dawn War as a means to preserve one of his fellow gods.
The Crystal appears to have a divine power about which is capable of restoring life to those who have carried but not used it, as was the case with Elleandra.
