Enchantment over the Sea

“Ingeniātor” is the word in the Common Tongue for those who bind spirits in fetters of material objects to power magic effects. These include the fetters made of bone to contain the spirits of the dead, fetters made of stone or wood to contain the spirits of nature, fetters made of iron to house demonic entities, or fetters made of bronze to contain spirits of the primal elements. Of the lot, only the bronze fetters that house elemental powers are sanctioned by the Imperial Church…and indeed they do quite good business selling said reliquaries of power.
