Simple bead, devoid of purpose. Its pristine surface has never been soiled by fervent fingers.
Bead Marked by Guilt
Bead that has absorbed the Guilt of its bearer. It may be difficult to perceive the dark macula that twists inside, but the cold it gives to the touch leaves no room for doubt. Wearing it in your rosary prevents the accumulation of Guilt in the world, at least while the bead retains part of its purity.
Bead Tainted by Guilt
Bead that has absorbed the Guilt of its bearer on several occasions. In its nucleus there lies a black spiral, twisting and stirring in outbursts of wrath. Wearing it in your rosary prevents the accumulation of Guilt in the world, at least while the bead retains part of its purity.
Weight of True Guilt
Bead completely tainted that has absorbed the sins of its wearer until completely filled. Encloses a storm of Guilty, and rumbles with the echoes of past mistakes.
Statues of Confessors used to carry beads like this, reaping Guilt from repentant parishioners.
Acquired in the Graveyard of the Peaks, in the same room as the Confessor statue.
"I have something for you, and for you alone..." revealed the gipsy to a monk who had just stopped his donkey, as she uncovered a white stone possessing a strange beauty. "It comes from the darkness of the ocean floor. Contemplate its purity, look at its immaculate white, its virgin brilliance... What could be purer than this for your rosary, brother?"
