These finger-sized shards of orange crystal are warm to the touch of living flesh and glow with faint light like a candle at sunrise and sunset. Syaandi also have the ability to attune a tear shard to a tear of paradise, creating a spiritual link between themselves and the tear. If the syaandi is slain within the radius of the tear of paradise’s effect, its spirit are drawn through the tear shard to the presence of the tear, where its body is reformed and granted the effect of a breath of life spell.
If this is sufficient to restore the syaandi to life, it recovers immediately and does not gain a negative level.
Syaandi prize these crystals greatly, always seeking to replace an inert shards with a new one after its power has been expended. There are rumors of more powerful tear shards that can grant a full resurrection effect, as well as those that carry the syaandi’s body and all it carries to the presence of the tear.
A tear shard functions only once.
