In the Ruins of Bibracte
Rumpelstiltskin, a wooden frame, about 3 × 2 feet, with a huge metal comb set in it. The frame is carved into a likeness of a dwarf’s head, with the opening serving as the dwarf’s gaping mouth, comb tines passing for teeth. The comb is a lesser invested device.
- Effect: Separate the Fibers, ReAn(He,Te) 20 (Base 1, +1 touch, +2 Sun, +2 Group, +1 Requisites, +1 Complexity)
- Environmental trigger, 2 uses per day, final effect level 24
- When Rumpelstiltskin is “fed” raw wool, the effect draws the fibers through the comb, collecting and discarding dust and twigs; straightens and breaks up the clumped fibers, and forms the fibers into a half-inch ‘sliver’ of wool, ready for spinning. (It’s essentially a magical equivalent of a carding machine.)
- Item was created specifically as a gift for Mons Electi once Stultus knew that’s where he was going. Given a decent Aura, it would have taken 2 Seasons to enchant.
