Rings of Honor
MoonBeryl
The Yellow Opal

Minor Power - Levitate: The user can levitate small objects. Couches and tables are not small objects but glasses, coins, etc., are. The user will be able to use this power to bring items to them instead of having to go over and get what they want.

Major Power - Feathertouch: The user of Moonberyl's power has the ability to "feathertouch." In essence, things that normally weigh a lot (like the resident orc) will seem rather light. Flipping people becomes much easier as does the ability to pick them up without great exertion. However, if the user loses concentration, they may cause themselves to fall or end up off balance, as things will seem their normal weight once again.

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.
