Once in studying these unhallowed manuscripts, I seem to recall, I found reference to a bloodstone ring.

In the booty captured in a savage raid, Kane discovers a ring, a bloodstone, which is key to the power that lies buried, inactive but not dea, within the forest.

Hechon looked toward him in shrewd calculation, and after a pause he tossed the bloodstone ring to him.

Kane frowned slightly and continued to examine the bloodstone ring speculatively.

Swiftly Kane scooped up the bloodstone ring from the darkened earth and straightened to face the other outlaws.

The bloodstone ring wriggled on his mud-slick finger and came perilously close to slipping off.

The bloodstone ring, loose on his finger, sailing away from his hand as he cast the spear, arcing over the embattled swampland.

With an insane bellow, Kane scrambled to his feet, eyes fixed upon the spot where the bloodstone ring had disappeared.

Deliberately Kane stalked toward them, fist extended so that all could behold the bloodstone ring.

How long their awe of the bloodstone ring might maintain this nervous truce, Kane cared not to guess.

But in the dim light Kane recognized immediately the kinship of this monolithic crystal to the bloodstone ring upon his forger.
