Willpower. Little things.

You possess resistance to mental attacks.
Used by Autumn Whitlock, Created by therustyy257.
( You must actively and obviously be using worn metal pendant.)

Autumn's eyes snap shut, her shaky left hand swiftly shoots towards her chest and almost feverishly clutches around the worn out but oddly elegant looking iron locket with a foggy, red gemstone in the middle - in another life the piece would have doubtlessly been stunning to witness, though now it's but a shadow of its former self, merely hinting at the beauty time mercilessly eroded.

The pendant hangs around the woman's neck on a thick, old but still rather sturdy looking metal chain, her thin hand clutches around the necklace, hard enough to turn her sharp delicate knuckles a ghostly white.

"It's the little things that so often remind us of who we truly are when we so foolishly lose our way, a cheap, seemingly meaningless gift, a kind word in the time of need - or a moment of heartfelt silence, a warm embrace when my very bones felt like ice - it can keep one sane, kept me from taking the wrong turn and ending up in a ditch like so many of the less fortunate already have."
