Level 2 AbyssalHearthstones
Blood-Lust Jewel by Ikselam
Trigger: Licking or kissing a wound.
This teardrop-shaped gem is colored a deep, opaque carmine, like congealing blood. If its wearer touches his mouth to an open wound, the wounded person will experience a surge of ecstatic, intensely erotic pleasure. When this power is used, the target must make an immediate Temperance check. If she gets even one success, she has managed to suppress her body's reaction and is able to act normally. If she fails, her mind is clouded by pleasure and all her actions for the remainder of the turn are at -2 dice. A botch means that she has been totally overcome by the sensation, and is unable to act at all for the remainder of the turn.
This power may be used while an Abyssal is drinking blood from a victim.
Gemstone of Murder by Ikselam
This multifaceted carmine gem is slick to the touch, and reeks with the coppery smell of freshly-spilt blood. When attuned, it allows its bearer to feed on the Essence released by violent death. Every time he kills any living creature of mouse size or larger with his bare hands, he regains a number of motes equal to its permanent Essence score. If he kills an intelligent being, he doubles the number of motes regained.
No motes are gained for "killing" spirits unless they are permanently destroyed.
Stone of Burned Prayer by Telgar
This transparent cube often forms in crypts or temples which frequently recieve offerings from the mortal world. Every day at nightfall, the Stone produces enough offerings to equal a decent Resources 2 sacrifice. It is worth noting that the Stone of Burned Prayers does not create this wealth, but summons it from untended or undirected offerings elsewhere in the Underworld and that using it may result in an angry ghost knocking at your door.
Stone of Driving Focus by Mapache
Trigger: Seeking answers
This opaque red stone allows the bearer's determination to knock aside impediments to his finding things he wants. Add the bearer's Conviction to all Investigation rolls he makes.

Gem of Shadow (Book of Three Circles, p. 115)

Appearance: During the day, it is a somewhat ordinary, highly polished onyx. During the night or in a shadowland or the Underworld, small whisps of something dance about within.
Power: The bearer of this stone may see and interact with dematerialized ghosts, plasmics, and other denizens of the Underworld. However, this power does not extend to gods, elementals, demons or other spiritual creatures.
