PostSubject: Dante: The coins of Zodiac   Mon Sep 10, 2012 6:34 pm

THE COINS OF ZODIAC
The ram, the bull, the heavenly twins,
And next the crab, the lion shines,
The virgin and the scales,
The scorpion, archer, and the goat,
The man who holds the watering-pot,
And the fish with glittering scales.

The Coins of Zodiac date from a time unknown to mortal beings. All that is known is the fact Zodiac used to be a powerful Otherworld Entity who broke his power into 12 pieces and binding them into 12 coins, each made of a different material. The true purpose and power of The Coins is unknown. Ever since they where discovered by a scholar of lost cultures numerous people have tried to get The Coins in their possesion. Some to bring faith and balance to the world, some for greed and lust for power, but not a single person has ever managed to gain all 12 Coins because the scholar who reckognised their power has hidden each of them in a different place and has since dissapeared.
The shape of each Coin is more or less identical. Each is made of a different material and has the size of a fist. One side of a Coin has a symbol of it's Zodiac sign, and the other side strangely has a hole in it. The hole is round shaped, placed in the middle of The Coin, and can be seen through even though the other side is flat and has no hole in it. It is as if the Coins are supposed to be placed on something very specific.
Each of these coins requiers two rituals completed before they can bond with their owner. Whenever an owner is changed, the new owner must complete the same two rituals before he or she can use the power of the coins. These rituals change over time and the details on how to preform them were lost over the years.

TRIVIA:

Trivia 1: The last user of the Libra Zodiac Coin died from overusing it's power and crumbling into the ground discovering the maximum weight allowed.
Trivia 2: The user before him died from experimenting The Coins lower limit going into negative weight and float into the Sun.
Trivia 3: The Summoning of the Mythical Zodiac Beasts does not consume an action, and the summoned creatures can not attack. Their ultimate purpose is still unknown.
Trivia 4: The percentage bonus of the elemental Coin abilities stacks by 5% for each aditional elemental Coin in possesion. (1 Coin = 5% reduction, 2 Coins = 10%, 3 Coins = 15%, 4 Coins = 20%)
Trivia 5: The Twins Coin has a „negative“ effect preventing the user from telling lies at all times.
Trivia 6: It is suspected by a handful of tomb raiders, artefact hunters, collectors and thieves of ancient relics that there is an aditional 13th Coin which connects the other 12 in a unique way. This rumor has never been proven and there is no known evidence if The 13th Coin of Zodiac to exists or even if it does, it's purpose is an enigma.
Trivia 7: The coins which grant ability bonuses do not stack with other items which grant the same bonuses.
