War of the Celestial Heavens
Anvil of Earth
The Anvil is massive, adorned with elaborate kanji.
To activate the Anvil sprinkled earth on it. When activated the user can focus on any natural landmark within line of sight, like a mountain or plain, and strokes the anvil, shaping the landscape to their will. Major change like flattening an entire mountain takes prolonged use of the Anvil.
In 1160 the Oracles of Light decided to retreat from the Mortal Realm for a time, to watch the people of Rokugan from the Celestial Heavens. Before they left each Oracle gifted an enchanted item that bore the power of an Elemental Dragon.
The Anvil was found by a Lion shugenja Kitsu Tomoe, the younger sister of the Hare Clan Champion Usagi Ozaki. Tomoe was visiting her Hare relatives shortly after the Rain of Blood to aid them in recovering when she came upon the Anvil. The bloodspeakers attacked Shiro Usagi, and during the heaviest of the fighting she discovered the Anvil, sensing great power from within. The kami surrounding the Anvil told her how to use it, and she realized that if she used it to it’s full power the existence of the Anvil would become known to all. She therefore used it sparingly, only making sure the Hare were never overrun, and in the end the Hare won the battle against a vastly superior bloodspeaker army. Tomoe returned with the Anvil to Kitsu lands where it could be safely studied.
