The Time Of Blades and Magic
Nemuranai are man-made items of exceptional quality that have had the kami within them awakened, either through the skill used in originally creating them or through their association with great deeds. The awakened kami within them allow these items to grant their users fantastic and magical abilities. The items most likely to awaken are weapons and armor, and the most famous and powerful nemuranai are items of this type. Some nemuranai have been tainted by the Shadowlands, and are extremely dangerous to use.
