Old Worlders, hoping for divine protection, believe the gods are better able to see invocations that are attached to the petitioner. So, many attach scrolls of parchment to their clothing or hang them around their neck on cords. The scraps of paper may be a written blessing, pages torn from a holy book, absolution of sin, or a ward against danger written by a priest. When campaigning in inclement climes, it is not uncommon for soldiers to wear, between their chest and shirt, brown parchment anointed with vinegar that is blessed by a Priestess of Shallya to protect against colds and flu. Though powerless, these items ease the fears of the soldiers and warriors who carry them into battle.[1a]
