Extra Info:
ontological anchor

Plutonic metal is etched with a two-dimensional projection of the rhombic dodecahedral honeycomb, allowing it to snap onto the ley lines of the local region.


The ontological anchor is a bracelet that projects a normality field in the vicinity of the object when dropped, suppressing reality-distorting effects such as teleportation, time dilation, and space-time vortices. While equipped, it will instead only affect the wearer. It has a chance to be carried by knights of the Putus Templar.

The base strength of the normality field is 100: this is enough to render things affected astrally tethered, completely preventing use of reality-distorting effects. However, the strength of this field is reduced by each point of Glimmer the wearer has, and further reduced proportionally to the HP percentage of the user.
