Prophet. You are immediately cursed with a connection to the mind of a genie or angel. This being's thoughts and opinions will constantly flood into your mind, granting you disadvantage of all Intelligence and Wisdom checks while cursed in this way. Only a saint of the magic of the Reaper (The Fates) card can end this curse.

Sentient Magic Items
Zweihaender of Oerloeg
You gain a +1 bonus to attack and damage rolls made with this magic weapon. You gain an additional +1 when attacking a spellcaster (for a total of +2). It has the following additional properties:
Magic Hunter. While you hold this weapon, you are aware of the presence of Tiny or larger creatures within 60ft of you which are capable of casting 1st level spells or higher.
Sentience. The Zweihaender is a sentient, idealist weapon with an Intelligence of 16, a Wisdom of 13, and a Charisma of 21. It has hearing and darkvision out to 120 feet. The weapon can speak, read, and understand Draconic, Dwarven, and Honderreicher, and can communicate with its wielder telepathically.
Personality. The blue dragon Oerloeg has extended her life indefinitely by having her soul bound to the Zeihaender. Her distaste for spellcasters began long before the Orc Wars, having followed dwarven culture and tradition for decades. Her hatred was solidified when an orc warlock disabled her in combat, allowing a squad of trolls to bring her near death. With her dying breaths, she made arrangements with dwarven artificers (the only spellcasters she trusted) to fuse her soul to a greatsword--that she may get her revenge after the death of her body.
She had her chance at closure when the hero Jostin came into possession of the Zweihaender, and sought to defeat the half-orc warlock Hippolyta. However, when she heard the name again a century later, she flew into an inconsolable rage--posessing the body of November, and bringing a new party of heroes against Hippolyta.
ArtifactsThere has not yet been a need to detail artifacts for Monvesia. Given the nature of ascension, there must be at least six artifacts present in the world--one tied to each saintly path. Until they are specifically needed in play, however, I will not explore any detail of their possible identities or features.
