OriginEdit

Narcissus was a figure in Greek mythology. A beautiful man, he was obsessed with his appearance and shunned those he considered less than himself. Angered by his callous rejection of the nymph Echo, the goddess Nemesis caused him to fall in love with his own reflection in a pond. Unable to tear himself away, he wasted away and died by the pond.

EffectsEdit

Putting a single drop of this water into a pool of water makes the surface still and highly reflective. Anyone who sees their face will become enraptured by it and will be unable to shift their gaze. If the water is disturbed, the effect breaks.

Due to being a finite resource, use of this artifact is strictly prohibited. However once used on a water supply, that water temporarily becomes more of the artifact, allowing for potential refills if needed.
