An enruned verdigrised bell dangling from an electrum chain was a keepsake giftbox item from New Year's Even 2019. After infusing spirit into the bell it becomes a glowing-runed verdigrised bell dangling from an electrum chain. The bell is belt worn and account attuned.

Description

No bigger than a conch shell, the round bell has several openings within the bronze alloy, smaller than the clapper and mallet inside.  The runes covering the bell are a lifeless grey.  The verdigrised bell is suspended on an electrum chain.

Loresong

As you sing, you feel a faint resonating vibration from the verdigrised bell in your hand, and you learn something about it...

A vision suddenly takes over your sight.  You are high above a growing frontier village.  You look around and realize you're a bird.  You glide off into the distance, looking for millet.

A rush of cold air causes your vision to end.

As you sing, you feel a faint resonating vibration from the verdigrised bell in your hand, and you learn something about it...

Your vision clouds and the image of the frontier village returns.  You're still a bird flying high above the area.  This time, you see more buildings than last, as the village has grown into a full-fledged town.  You decide to dive bomb toward the nothern gate.

You are startled as the vision ends in a crash landing.

As you sing, you feel a faint resonating vibration from the verdigrised bell in your hand...

You blink several times, returning to the skies.  The frontier town is populated with many people.  Halflings, giants, elves, and humans.  You look down at your feet and notice you have a bronze bell suspended from a chain of some sort.  You look behind yourself, and you see a whole flock of birds holding the same bell.

You look forward and realize you're no longer the bird.

As you sing, you feel a faint resonating vibration from the verdigrised bell in your hand...

You concentrate for a moment, but you're vision is very different now.  You're no longer a bird, but you're in an enclosure.  There is stuff all around you.  You are suddenly joustled and you make a clanging noise.  A lid is removed over the top of you, and you realize you are now the bell.  The person holding you is yourself.

The vision ends as you make that connection.
