Pair Dadeni - Mystical Items of Eira Preview

According to Welsh mythology the Pair Dadeni is a large cauldron that can bring the dead back to life. The cauldron has no origin outside of being among the belongings of the giants Gyfnewid and Cyminfoll. Tragedy seems to follow the owners of the cauldron as the giants were burned out of their home by locals, the next owner one of the Chieftains of Wales lost it to avoid war after his son, murdered a major chieftain of Ireland’s horses. In the end, the cauldron was destroyed during a war of vengeance between the Welsh and the Irish when the same chieftain’s son who murdered the Irish horses shattered the cauldron from the inside.

In Eira, the cauldron is a mythical artifact, hidden away since the dawn of time when the goddess Eira created the land. The exact location is unknown, but stories tell of a temple on an island located on Loch Sevel, hidden by mists and protected by two giant-kin. It is said that the Pair Dadeni, can bring the dead back to life, although not always as themselves, that it can restore the grievously wounded and aged to their prime.

It should be noted in the Eira setting, Clerics and Magic-Users do not have access to resurrection, reincarnation or wish spells, so any character that a party wants to bring back must be taken to the Pair Dadeni cauldron … wherever the cauldron may be.

Another note, the Pair Dadeni is a large cauldron, filled with mystical waters. The weight alone should make it impossible for the Pair Dadeni to be moved from the temple it is rumored to be. However, should some inventive and creative adventurers find a way to move the cauldron its abilities will be rendered null.
