Sandstone of the Gallison Estralla Empire Rose
(MR1, Element Earth, Fire and Air)
This rare rose is only found in the depths of the Ariddia on the continent of Terla, near outcroppings of Sandstone of the Gallison Empire. There is only one known Sandstone of the Gallison Empire Rose bush outside of the depths of the Ariddia and it is in the Hall of Kent. This magical rose bush is sought after for its abilities. The Sandstone of the Gallison Empire Rose bush can grow up to 20 feet in diameter and 15 feet tall. Once the Sandstone of the Gallison Empire Rose bush grows over six feet in height, the lower potions of the stalks can grow to four inches in thickness.
If a Sandstone Rose bush can be convinced/trained to climb over an archway or up a column, it will act as a Greater Ward protecting the portal. The older the bush, the stronger the Greater Ward. The Greater Ward is triggered by touching the petals of a bloom and asking its aid. On some of the older specimens in the Ariddia, it is difficult to tell if the roses are carved representations or if they are genuine plants.
One quantity of Sandstone of the Gallison Empire rose blossom is equal to seven quantities of materials for working with Basic Magick: Fire, Basic Magick: Earth and Basic Magick: Air.
If one incorporates four quantities of Sandstone Rose blossoms into a device of wards, it increases the PSF% of the magick by 25% in the device. In addition, it provides the device with recharging at a rate of one charge per day.
If one incorporates two quantities of Sandstone Empire Rose blossoms into a device of Fire it will double the amount of energy damage the device can wield.
A segment of eight to 14 inches of the stem or wood of the Sandstone Rose bush can be made into a wand of magick that will naturally recharge 4 charges a day. The wand would be considered a greater device of power.
Three quantities of roots from the Sandstone Rose bush can be ground and mixed with water to create an adhesive that will bond anything including metals together. The bond is strong enough that most will believe the metals have been forge-welded. Each quantity of this adhesive is enough to cover 240 square inches of surface. The adhesive is expensive at 25,000 P per quantity.
The chance to find Sandstone of the Gallison Empire roses in a shop is 0.0% and 2% in the wilds of the Ariddia. Fresh blossoms are worth 45000 P per blossom.
