18.7 Lunar Auras

One of the more significant effects of the extremely rare alignment of  
the Moons, known at the Triple Eclipse, are the auras that can envelop  
individuals at random. Each night, at Midnight, many people across the  
land can find themselves blessed with the sacred aura of one of the     
three moons, each offering a variety of different effects. They last    
until the next midnight, when they either fade, or if a person is lucky,
are replaced by another aura.                                           

The unique edifice known as the Lunar Pylon can, however, grant lesser  
versions of these auras, even without the Eclipse. They may be claimed  
by walking through the Pylon via PASS THROUGH PYLON, assuming that the  
person doing so is a member of the organisation that has won it in a    
continental contest.

A person affected by an aura will find which one in their defences      
(using DEF), and it will also be visible when they are looked at. The   
auras are:                                                              

Bliss of Life
A restorative aura that will cause a person to rapidly regenerate       
health, mana, and reserves.                                  

Boon of Change
A lucky aura that will increase the chance of critical hits, as well as 
the amount of gold creatures can drop.                                  

Fist of Terror
A strengthening aura that both increases damage dealt, and reduces      
damage taken.                                                           

The Auras themselves are a reflection of the Diachaim, and free of the  
influences of any circle, be it magick, anti-magick or demonic. It is   
considered most fortuitous to be blessed by one, and only occur during  
the rare Triple Eclipse, though a lesser aura may be received by passing
through the Lunar Pylon if it has been won by your city or council.
