Extra Info:
Shemesh Face

Burning rubies, carnelians, and garnets are arranged as a warm and giving sun. Diminutive rocky orbs pass by in the near space of the visage, and in the far space a prism of freight lengthens into a wider void. The inside of the mask is ribboned with burnt tracery from where it was molded on a gallium lathe, then dyed with the milked irises of shedim and set to dry in a pool of warm static.

Shemesh Face is a sultan relic located within the Tomb of the Eaters.

The Shemesh Face can be found, possibly alongside other sultan relics, in a reliquary located next to the tomb of the sultan belonging to the 2nd period. This reliquary will be guarded by cherubs corresponding to factions from the sultan's history; these cherubs must be defeated before the Shemesh Face can be removed from the reliquary. As is true with all sultan masks, removing The Shemesh Face from the reliquary will cause the tombs and reliquaries of the other sultans to disappear, preventing the player from accessing their contents.

In addition to the stat bonuses listed here, the Shemesh Face will have additional effects based on the history of its sultan; it will grant +200 reputation with any factions the sultan was favored by, and -200 reputation with any factions they were disliked by. It will also have a tier 6, armor-based relic effect based on the sultan's theme.[1][2]
