THE BRONZE TALISMAN
Molten metal, scavenged from the bowels of the earth, born of feverish sweat of the brow.
Copper, mingled with tin, then joined by subtle craft.
Fired and forged by practiced fingers.
Molded to suit both mind and spirit.
Polished to a flickering sheen; in preparation for the patina. Fiery, shadowy, cold, and dark.
Inscribed and enchanted, rune-scripted, dark mystery imbued with a mystical light.
