From deep recesses in the walls, the chants of twisted throats echoed out into the cavern. There was no light but Awakened needed nothing so base to perceive what was real. The cultist had removed the blindfold that shaded their dark sockets from the world’s lies and turned their head in the direction of that whimpering thing which still tried to escape its fate, that writhing creature so similar to what they had once, pitifully, been. It had believed itself to be safe, shielded by walls and strength but few things kept an Awakened from their chosen prey.
The cultist let out a long rasping exhale as they readied the unfinished dagger before beginning to drag their feet towards the offering which scrambled away from the noise… and into the grasp of many awaiting arms. Shrieks filled the stone enclosure but could not drown out the prayers that reached much further than the mere flesh of one’s ear. Time shuddered, stretching and compressing as the offering was cast before the ever seeing gaze that will one day consume all. When the ruined body crumpled to the ground, the Awakened cultist raised their arm. Clenched in their bony fist, the dagger’s new eye rolled wildly in the previously empty socket.
The first creation within our new Cult of the Awakened collection, the Sakreiegt dagger has sparked the imagination of many in our workshop. Its name is inspired from the Middle English words sakred (sacrifice), eie (eye) and rigt (true). The handle, while shaped to comfortably fit within the hand, bears the appearance of a creature with a ridged belly, uncanny eyes and a maw that splits wide and from which extends a blade decorated with spiraling tendrils. Inspired by the mythoi of cosmic horror and legendary monsters of old, this dagger embodies the otherworldly.
This weapon is an excellent choice for those who seek, for better or for worse, to extend the limits of their perception and to part the veil of reality. Priests, cultists and seekers of eldritch knowledge will find many occasions to put it to excellent use.
