Adornments of Vaerlin Sha’raelle, a set of linked, matching
ter’angreal, consists of a finger-ring, a belt of leather
and gold set with gems, a bracelet set with gems complementing
the belt, and a gem-studded necklace that matches
them both. Although the Aes Sedai as yet remain uncertain
of these objects’ nature, powers, and origin, some
of the more scholarly sisters believe them to be the Adornments
of Vaerlin Sha’raelle, who is thought to be an
Aes Sedai from the time of the Breaking. According to the
records of the Tower, the Adornments function only if
worn together. That information is not entirely true, though.
Individually, the items do have effects, although they
are fairly subtle. These effects are given below.
all of the Adornments are worn together, however, the
true strength of this ter’angreal comes to light. All
of the effects below are tripled.
the wearer’s Defense by +1.
the wearer a +2 competence bonus on damage
dealt by melee attacks against Shadowspawn.
a +1 resistance bonus on all saving throws
and an additional +1 bonus on Will saving throws to
resist the powers of Shadowspawn.
the damage caused by all weaves used
to injure Shadowspawn, Friends of the Dark, and other
servants of the Shadow by 1d6 points.
records say Vaerlin Sha’raelle created a second set
of Adornments with additional powers, but if so, they were
not among the Ebou Dar hoard.
