Primary Edict Amulet

Artist's Rendition

As part of the wardrobe of Baraccus, The First Wizard and a War Wizard from the Great War, this amulet was found by Richard Rahl in the First Wizard's Enclave of the Wizard's Keep in Aydindril. He wore it from then on as part of his War Wizard's outfit, as a reminder of the Primary Edict (shown below).

Primary EdictEdit

"The ruby is meant to represent a drop of blood. It is the symbolic representation of the way of the primary edict.

"It means only one thing, and everything: cut. Once committed to fight, cut. Everything else is secondary. Cut. That is your duty, your purpose, your hunger. There is no rule more important, no commitment that overrides that one. Cut.

"The lines are a portrayal of the dance. Cut from the void, not from bewilderment. Cut the enemy as quickly and directly as possible. Cut with certainty. Cut decisively, resolutely. Cut into his strength. Flow through the gaps in his guard. Cut him. Cut him down utterly. Don't allow him a breath. Crush Him. Cut him without mercy to the depths of his spirit.

"It is the balance to life: death. It is the dance with death.  It is the law a war wizard lives by, or he dies."
