Tales of the Northern March
Rare wondrous item
A foot long hourglass made of bone carved with a skull motif. The glass is darkly tinted a smoky grey and the sand inside is black.
- Property: As an action, it can be upturned, summoning a gateway to Hel which takes the form of a covered bridge over a dark stream. The gateway remains open until the sand runs out (exactly one minute). Nothing can be done to stop the sand running its course once it is activated.
- Quirk: While carrying the hourglass, the bearer experiences feelings of ennui.
This item was crafted by servants of Hel to allow them to return to their mistress after venturing abroad. This one was found in the horde of Eitrdottir.
