What is the heck is a Talisman...it isn’t a man that tells tales I found out!

Talisman comes the Arabic word طلسم Tilasm, and ultimately from the Greek word Teleo which means "to consecrate". Amulets and talismans are often interchanged with each other but while the amulet is frequently an object with natural magical properties, a talisman must be charged with magical powers by the person creating it. It is the act of consecration or "charging" that gives the talisman its alleged magical powers. The talisman is always made for a definite reason whilst an amulet can be used for generic purposes such as averting evil or attracting good luck.
(Sorce: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Talisman)

So, if you had to make a Talisman what would it be in the form of, jewelry? Ordinary objects like a stapler or a pair of scissors, or, something easer to carry...because if is a car, you can't put that in your pocket.

My Talisman is my computer mouse, it is so magical until the battery dies, then it acts like a Taliswoman, it starts having a mind of it's own, and no matter what buttons I push it will decide to start ignoring me, until I give it a shiny new power source then it is happy....lol.

Mine would be a ring since it represents unity between two members of a strong relationship.

On it would be two amethyst to represent a couple in love and in the middle would be a larger one to represent their unity.

Amethyst is my birth stone and I'm pretty obsessed with Argonian culture. lol

I will make that ring one day. ^-^

Well the way the talismans are use in this universe, you would want something you could change easy, wouldn't care if it was destroyed. it would have to be light weight so you could carry lots of them. It can't look too obvious when your wearing it I would have to say a neck-less, or perhaps dog tags
