Rings of Honor
The Red Opal

Minor Power - Firebuilding: This power can create small amounts of fire no bigger then an average cook-fire. The flame can be projected up to a range of about five feet. It can be used to burn through ropes, light cigars, or heat a section of the room.

Major Power - Flamestrike: This gives the user the ability to create a large force of flame that can encircle his or her body. Punching forward with the intensity of this flame can possibly cause damage to one's opponent.

At the end of Diamond Quest XI, a new rank came into being in the Outback. The six that placed highest among the seventeen competitors took home gems that night, only one of them was the coveted diamond.

There has been speculation far and wide about what the opals actually are, or what purpose or power they serve. All we know for sure is that it is a highly competitive title among those in the Duel of Fists, obtained only by those willing to pit their skills against the best of the best.
