The Bonds of Etheria

These soulsteel bands bind the body and souls of two individuals together. These bands were used by Abyssal Exalted to torture information out of particularly hearty opponents. The first band is placed on the intended victim, an Exalt, who is usually unconscious. Containing small rubies throughout its structure the second band looks like fine lace, but is composed of soulsteel that once closed forms a seamless bond and can not be forced open. The second band, much more plain in comparison a smooth flat band of soulsteel that bears only a ruby on it. The ruby is placed over a major vein or artery on the second person, usually a mortal as they are not as rugged as an Exalt. The band then robs the Exalt of all his essence to complete the bond. After this, the exalt regains essence at a slower rate, 3/hour instead of the normal 4 (6/hour if resting), as the essence is channeled into the Bonds of Eternia to maintain the connection. Once the bands are locked the plain band transfers all injury to the person wearing the other band. This damage bypasses all soak, though the bearer of the plain band can still soak the damage normally.
