[Scalvoris] Materials

Image
Rainbow Sand

Developed by Pegasus
Image
Image
Type of Material: Sand

Acquired By: Exploration of Scalvoris mountains / coastline around

Rarity: Only on specific beaches on the island of Scalvoris. Please see this thread

Price: 20gn for a small jar available in Scalvoris only.

Other Information: Scalvoris Rainbow Sand is a strange and wondrous substance. Whilst standing on the rainbow coloured beach, it appears to be lines of each different colour, separated clearly. If, however, one was to scoop up a handful, that handful would be all the colours of the rainbow and any of it collected will always have that property of all colours being represented.

Properties: Rainbow Sand is in a state of constant colour-change, even the smallest amount shifting through the colours of the rainbow. The effects this has on the beach is an incredible view. When contained in a jar, for example, the colours of the sand shift and change constantly also, producing a visually attractive talking point. An example of how the sand changes and shifts through colours is shown above to the right.

For whatever reason, and no one really has a clue, the sand tends to remain in "patches" or "stripes" of colour, so in a clear jar for example, whilst the colours will constantly shift, there will be one part which is red, another yellow ~ the same colour is very unlikely to appear twice in the same batch of sand, no matter how large or small.

[Scalvoris] Materials

Image
Faldrass Sand

Developed by Pegasus
Type of Material: Sand

Acquired By: Exploration of Faldrass beaches where it is very common. This is the only place it exists.

Rarity: Only on specific beaches on the island of Scalvoris. Please see this thread

Price: Freely available on Faldrass, 2gn for a jar in any other area of Scalvoris only. Not available elsewhere.

Other Information: The sands of Scalvoris are as strange as the rest of the island and the Orange Faldrass Sand is no exception. It's deep burnt orange colour is reminiscent of the volcano which dominates the small island.

Properties: Faldrass Sand is always warm. Not hot, you couldn't cook with it or anything, but it maintains the temperature of sand on a warm, sunny day. Even in the depths of Cylus, Faldrass sand is comfortable and warm. Therefore, there has to be a lot of snow for the beach to be white and, even when it is, it never is for long.

The Faldrass resort makes good use of this and all of their cabins have wooden floors, resting on a thick layer of Faldrass Sand. It isn't underfloor heating, but it certainly makes the floor itself nice and warm.

[Scalvoris] Materials

Image
Lightstone

Developed by Pegasus
Type of Material: Mineral

Acquired By: Exploration

Rarity: Uncommon

Skills Needed to Obtain / Work: Dangerous to obtain due to location. Jewelcrafting: Competent to work effectively. Others: TBD

Details: These are found in Ishallr ice caves, mostly, with some being found in the caves of Faldrass

Price: 5 GN (small ~ up to 3 cm cubed), 10gn (medium ~fit in your hand), 50gn (large - roughly human head)

Other Information: The danger with these minerals is that they are in some of the more dangerous places on Scalvoris. Once you're near them, they are straightforward to spot (they'll be the stones giving off light) and easy to collect (pick them up).

Properties: Each lightstone emits light. Some are blue, some are green, etc. Each stone gives off a light of one colour, although what colour that is seems to be random. The larger the stone, the more light is emitted, with large ones being able to emit enough light to illuminate a small room. High end establishments often have clear glass vases filled with tiny lightstones so that they get the light but also the variety of colours.

[Scalvoris] Materials

Image
Yellow Dragon Wood

Developed by Pegasus.
Type of Material: Wood

Acquired By: Axes & Bludgeons: Axe ~ Competent or higher. Also available to buy: commonly available

Crafting: Carpentry: Expert or higher

Rarity: Common in Scalvoris, very rare in the rest of Idalos (it is not exported)

Details: Harvested from the Yellow Dragon Tree body, the wood ranges from very pale to a deep golden yellow.

Price: 1gn / 1lb in weight

Other Information: Yellow Dragon Wood is used quite a lot throughout Scalvoris in homes up and down the island. It is relatively rare to see furnishings or so on made out of it, but it is used in log form in fireplaces. A log of Yellow Dragon Wood will burn with a bright flame, giving off a subtle smell of cherry (for reasons no one knows). However, the main property of this wood is that it continues to burn but does not burn out / get destroyed. One log, which usually weighs between 5 - 10lbs, will burn for 30 trials straight. Should the individual wish to put it out, just put sand over it and the flame will be immediately extinguished.

[Scalvoris] Materials

Image
Sandspecks

Developed by Pegasus
Type of Material: Sand (ish)

Acquired By: Exploration of Scalvoris mountains / coastline around

Rarity: Only on specific beaches on the island of Scalvoris. Please see this thread

Price: 50gn for a 10. Sold on the island of Scalvoris only. Usually sold to tourists since residents just collect their own if they want them.
Image
Other Information: During a ten-trial period in Ashan and another in Vhalar a strange phenomena is seen on the beaches of Scalvoris. During the night, what appear to be tiny glowing balls of light appear in the waves lapping against the shore. The colour of these lights is inevitably the colour of the sand of the beach the phenomena is observed on. It is a truly magical sight and people have been known to go on a "Sandspeck Pilgramage", following the phenomena around the beaches of Scalvoris as it appears on a different ten trial period on each colour of beach.

Properties: When the 'sandspeck' tide has gone out, it leaves behind thousands of tiny balls on the beach. People make a living out of collecting these as, when combined with certain chemicals they can be ground up to produce the rare gold or silver sand of Scalvoris. Also, on the ten-trial where the "sandspeck phenomena" is occurring where they were found they will glow in their original colour, no matter where they are.

[Scalvoris] Materials

Image
Silver Sand

Developed by Pegasus
Type of Material: Sand

Acquired By: Exploration of Scalvoris mountains / coastline around to gather Sandspecks, or purchase of sandspecks. Chemistry or Alchemy at Expert or above to extract the sand.

Rarity: Only on specific beaches on the island of Scalvoris. Please see this thread

Price: 100gn for a small jar. Sold on the island of Scalvoris only. Rare.

Other Information: During a ten-trial period in Ashan and another in Vhalar the 'sandspeck phenomena' happens on Scalvoris. Leaving behind tiny balls which glow on the ten-trial for arcs to come.

With a simple mortar and pestle and a little knowledge about chemistry or alchemy, the sandspecks can be crushed into the rare silver (or sometimes the very rare gold) sand of Scalvoris. The trick is to combine the sandspeck with some other Scalv sand ~but this must not be the colour of the sand it was found on. Grind the sandspeck with that and a little salt and lo and behold, the result is silver or gold sand. The trick is getting the proportion just right as this involves a lot of very precise measuring and, sometimes, guesswork on the part of the chemist / alchemist. When it is done correctly, though, all of the contents are silver sand.

Properties: Scalvoris Silver Sand has a melting point of slightly warm and so, one can hold it in the palm of your hand and it turns to a beautiful silver liquid. This liquid has a very high viscosity and so you can use a small stick and 'pull' the molten silver sand.

[Scalvoris] Materials

Gold Sand

Developed by Pegasus
Type of Material: Sand (Very Rare)

Acquired By: Exploration of Scalvoris mountains / coastline around to gather Sandspecks, or purchase of sandspecks. Chemistry or Alchemy at Master or above to extract the sand. At Master, Gold Sand is extracted one time every 50 attempts. At Legendary one time every 20.

Rarity: Only on specific beaches on the island of Scalvoris. Please see this thread

Price: Not for sale, must have a Scalvoris Prophet overseeing

Other Information: During a ten-trial period in Ashan and another in Vhalar the 'sandspeck phenomena' happens on Scalvoris. Leaving behind tiny balls which glow on the ten-trial for arcs to come.

With a simple mortar and pestle and mastery of chemistry and alchemy, the sandspecks can be crushed into the very rare gold sand of Scalvoris. The trick is to combine the sandspeck with some other Scalv sand ~but this must not be the colour of the sand it was found on and, in fact, must usually be a specific other sand, depending on which beach the sandspecks were foud on. Grind the sandspeck with that and a little salt and lo and behold, the result is gold sand. The trick is getting the proportion just right as this involves a lot of very precise measuring and, sometimes, guesswork on the part of the chemist / alchemist. When it is done correctly, though, all of the contents are gold sand. As identified above, this works one time in 50 for those with mastery level skill and one time in 20 for those at legendary. The remaining attempts are wasted and destroy the sandspeck.

Properties: Scalvoris Gold Sand has a number of legends around it. It is known that it is inherently magical in nature, it is strongly suspected that it is linked to the "Fracture Tides" of the Orm'del sea and there are whispers that it is able to be moulded into anything, it's magic shaped so that it can shape anything. But thus far, anyone who's tried has experienced a lot of alchemical backlash and no small amount of academic mockery.

[Scalvoris] Materials

Image
Red Sand

Developed by Pegasus
Type of Material: Sand

Acquired By: Exploration of beaches in and around the Almund area where it is very common. Also, some of the beaches around Havardr. The island of Scalvoris is the only place it is known to exist.

Rarity: Only on specific beaches on the island of Scalvoris. Please see this thread

Price: Freely available on the appropriate beaches, 1gn for a jar in any other area of Scalvoris only. Not available elsewhere.

Other Information: The sands of Scalvoris are as strange as the rest of the island and the Red Sand is no exception.

Properties: Red Sand in and of itself has no unique properties but, if glass is made from it then the glass is much more resilient to heat and more durable. Also, the red sand glass always has the effect within the glass itself as though a fire is being reflected in it. However, the red sand is much more difficult to work with than ordinary sand and the glassblower must be at least expert for even the most basic piece, with master level of skill required for any certainty of result.

[Scalvoris] Materials

Snowcrystal

Developed by Pegasus
Type of Material: Mineral

Acquired By: Exploration or Sale (very limited availability)

Rarity: Rare

Skills Needed to Obtain / Work: Dangerous to obtain due to location. Jewelcrafting: Expert or above to work effectively. Others: TBD

Details: These are found in Ishallr ice caves.

Price: 20 GN (small ~ up to 3 cm cubed), 50gn (large~fit in your hand)

Other Information: Each of these snowcrystals is unique and seems to follow the same rule as the snowflakes they look like.

Properties: Snowcrystals have one property, but it is remarkable. They freeze what they touch. This means that they can be very useful, but are also very tricky to utilise. Where the snowcrystal touches, an immediate freezing effect happens and moves slowly out unless contained somehow. As jewelry, they are often mounted into a metal alloy which contains Faldrunite and so might be slightly warm to the touch. This is a technique used to contain them in laboratories, also, where they are a source of study.

Generally, they are not sought after as more than an oddity or talking point. It is estimated that to freeze an entire person, for example, the snowcrystal would have to be in direct contact with their skin for maybe ten full breaks, so they are no good as weapons. It is also only what they touch which freezes so, this does not spread. Also, they are held back by heat ~ something which is warm will contain the freezing.

Scalvoris Green Sand

Developed by Pegasus
Type of Material: Sand

Acquired By: Exploration of Scalvoris "green sand" beaches where it is very common. This is the only place it exists.

Rarity: Only on specific beaches on the island of Scalvoris. Please see this thread

Price: Freely available on the beaches in question, 2gn for a jar in any market area of Scalvoris only. Not available elsewhere.

Other Information: The sands of Scalvoris are as strange as the rest of the island and the Scalvoris Green San is no exception. It is a vivid green colour and is the only green thing (apart from foodstuff) which Scalvoris residents aren't superstitious about in Ymiden.

Properties: Scalvoris Green sand is the opposite to the Orange Sand found on Faldrass. The Green Sand is always cool. Not cold, but just cool. In Saun it is as sought after as the Orange Sand is in Cylus and the Faldrass resort uses their underfloor system, replacing the bags with cool, green sand. A number of homes in Scalvoris have stockpiles of both the Orange and the Green sands for the extremes of temperature.

Other than the fact that it is always cool, there is nothing else special about this sand. Other than the fact that it is green.
