I can definitely see Crystal-Tobyn becoming a valuable party member. No distracting talks about their boring deity, doesn’t ask about loot, has no gear they need others to carry, and is unlikely to hurl themselves into a canyon.

And just imagine how many gp a decent jeweler would offer for a gem that size…

But he might find himself on a tip of a nostril-seeking arrow

Reminds me of these guys from Star Wars Legends: https://starwars.fandom.com/wiki/Shard_(species)

Sentient crystals, basically. Like the Ents, very slow-thinking and communicating.

Now you just need some kind of mechanical body to put Tobyn’s soul-crystal in and you’ve got your self an Iron Knight.

You KNOW Cake is gonna turn Crystal-Tobyn into an arrowhead and shoot him around.

It could be interesting. Crystal-Tobyn could possess the target it strikes, which could help deal with enemies that are particularly strong in combat. And that’s just one possibility.

I now have this image of Green sticking that crystal somewhere nasty, no not there… OR there get your mind out of the gutter. I was thinking an outhouse or something… after swallowing it.

Sorry, it’s too in-character for her, officially part of her lore now.

Somehow I suspect there is gonna be a mix up and a soul swapping arc after this lol

I can see this guy becoming the next bossfight. Maybe the spirit he recovered is a strong mage he wants to siphon power from or maybe someone of importance he can now use as leverage. He never did say why he needed this spirit. If it was like a daughter or grandchild he lost he could have used that to persuade the players even more to take on this quest, as in “I’ll help you save your friend if you in the meantime save my grandchild who got taken away from me and this world way to soon!”. But he… Read more »

Seriously. He’s barely hiding the evil intent.

What if he says “By the way, I don’t have any evil plans.” Would that do?

would be funny if there was a mixup between the stones before the souls are sent back to their respective bodies

I’m still wondering why the lady’s soul was important enough to be chained between two pillars with a guardian demon claiming that she is his property

No godly or ungodly emissary came to claim her…so what gives?

It kind of seems unusual to chain a spirit down in what is essentially a short term purgatory instead of taking them to their final reward or punishment

This weirdo might of used her for a spell and he wanted her back to try it again. The whole sacrificial virgin trope? True virgins are no doubt hard to find…
