shield. & psi booster(+1 to power level) ( though the latter is usefull to only to the psionic Mikuum Ikaa.). The wand's
psi shield is is area effect (3m radius). The technology to produce an Asirihi is said to been lost during the massacre of
priests & mikos during the Tenbatsu rebellion , so most existing asirihi are heirlooms handed down to succeeding
generations of Mikuum. However incomplete research seems indicate that each new Mikuum is presented with new(?);
so Asirihi may actually be still in production. Cost: Priceless to Lilithians, but asirihi have been sold at offworld
auctions for 80,000-100,000 Cr.
HIRAKEESHI: Rarer artifact version of the Asirihi, usable only by psionic Mikuum Ikaa. In addition to abilities built
into the more common Asirihi, the Hirakeeshi adds 2 to the user's power level instead of the Asirihi's 1. It is also a
psionic point storage unit capable of storing 12 points for 4 weeks. And unlike the Asirihi, the special weave shide of the
Hirakeeshi can be used in combat as a flail causing damage equal to half of the wielder's psionic points. (Treat as claws
on combat table). Only given to the most honored & powerful of the Mikuum Ikaa. Cost: Priceless. However a
hirakeeshi was sold for auction on Regina in 1106 for Cr. 8 million.
