In the early morning, Bjorn heads outside the camp to a quiet clearing nearby. He takes with him is sword, shield, and breastplate, but leaves the remaining parts of his armor at the camp. In a small bag is some silver dust, onyx shards, the vials of unholy water, a book, and some assorted spell components.
The book, a copy of The Acts of Iomedae, is in good condition. Bjorn picked it up on his last day at Asconor Lodge. It seemed to be well ignored by most of the previous guests and was therefor in good condition. He expected to read it while traveling to Feldgrau and back, but his quest now takes him south the Thrushmoor. He will have to return it when he can.
One of the lesser acts mentioned in the book was the purification and sanctification of the unholy. And so this his test for the morning.
He builds a small hot fire, then while saying a prayer to Iomedae, he trows the onyx shards in to the fire. This represented the purging of evil though the powers of Holy Fire. Once added to the fire, Bjorn charges the fire with positive energy causing the shards to turn to dust and mix in with the ash.
After the fire dies down, he takes out the vials of unholy water and recites another prayer from The Acts. Then he sprinkles the silver dust over one of the vials and charges it again with positive energy. The vial shatters with the excess of energy. After a few moments of contemplation, Bjorn centers himself and tries again. This time instead of invoking the name of the Inheritor, he just lets the holy energy flow though is hands and soft light the vial. The water bubbles and spills but it stays mostly intact.
Bjorn repeats the process on the remaining two vials and each time it is done with more control and stability. When it is all done, he takes the vials and sprinkles the newly purified water over his sword, breastplate, and shield to symbolize that from corruption comes purity and that purity will protect him from the corruption.
