Finally I get a chance to update again.
I've been running around a lot lately and been very busy. I won't be able to start posting pages again until Thursday and I have my hands on that related Artefact.
It it a perfect sphere with lines all around it. It was found in a box covered in Theurgic inscriptions and traps. Explosive Runes. Always annoying. We got it open after about a week of trials and a lot of pain. My left leg is still bandaged up, but it's healing fine. Burns won't keep me down for long, especially with the type of bandage we used to numb the pain.
It is about the size of a football (a soccer ball, for those of you in America) and is made of iron and bronze, but is very light. Surprisingly light. It doesn't feel empty, either, just light.
We've been studying it, but it doesn't seem to open. Something is missing. Maybe there is a key we need?
And to those who have asked: My Master has no family that I know of. Or, at least, he doesn't talk of any family. I think the name is just a coincidence. Mason is a common name, after all.
