The Hearts of War

Haruspices and surgeons of the dead can attest that years of battle and training can twist the body in subtle ways, most notably in the heart. Certain kinds of adventurers will even develop strange, signifying changes to that fleshy core of their being.


Textured similar to chain mail, with a form that is resilient and almost protective in a way.


Swift and powerful, pumping the lifeblood perhaps a big too eagerly. It stops beating very soon after death.


Beating in precise strokes, with a mildly dazzling sheen.


Burgeoning with small blades of iron, gushing blood and beating excitedly for the next battle.


Growing in strange ways, taking an unfamiliar shape with thorns and sometimes even grasping tendrils.


Sometimes filled with little gold-like pellets, as though the heart of a thief is trying to turn itself into a kind of coin purse.


Dark and sharp, shaped almost like a living blade. It seems to disappear somewhere every time you look away.


Covered in patterns like leaves, and colored with a hint of dark forest green.


Shaped slightly like a shield, there are stories of them turning aside the surgeon's blade.


Slightly twisted and drained of color, healers who use magical means report difficulty with this kind of stubborn organ.

The Minds of Magic

It is no secret or mystery that magic warps the mind and body. But rarely does one shatter the skull of a dead mage and root around at the flesh within. Those who do will find strange things inside...


Beginning to grow scales, and burning like embers from between the folds.

Shrine maiden

Open and porcelain, it can hold a candle and allow it to burn indefinitely.


Pale and wet, it softly steams with smokey blue flame, especially if pierced or pressed.


A squirming, crawling thing with teeth and fur between the folds of its flesh, it will crawl away and escape if left alone.


Full of holes, none of which lead where they should. It amplifies sound.


Mirrored and shining, it is heavy but cannot be touched as long as you can see it.


A fibrous mass of slowly growing plant matter. May be hard to remove, if the roots have spread into the skull.


Shaped like a spiral, with traces of energy and fluids swirling around its folds.


A dazzling but fragile thing, its blood is flashing lights and its substance is mush.

Holy medium

Dry, brittle and pale, but with a soft glow. If water is poured through it, the water will be pure and clear.

Magic user brains can be used as Ingredients for Alchemy.
