Disciplina’s Bracelet – New Magic Item / A to Z Blogging Challenge [D]

5 April, 2011

The soldier of the legion on the frontier often turned to the worship of Disciplina to fortify their resolve.  Following the goddess’ example, her followers came to exemplify frugalitas (frugality), severitas (sternness) and fidelis (faithfulness).

Their commanders encouraged such cults and the bracelets showing devotion were a common gift to those soldiers who served well and loyally.  Strength through discipline.

Disciplina’s Bracelet

These bracelets are made of iron and are decorated with the words: frugalitas (frugality), severitas (sternness) and fidelis (faithfulness).  The bracelet has a comforting weight and it is easy to keep clean as long as one tends to it regularly.
