A halflight charm is a magical pendant which is issued to travellers along the Halflight Path by their Duskwarden guides. It consists of a glowing crystal on the end of a leather thong, creating light equivalent to a torch.

The Halflight Path is a dangerous route. Once per day, a traveller in trouble can clutch the charm and issue a mental call for help that will be heard by the three closest Duskwardens within a mile radius. The Duskwardens are also given magical knowledge of the traveller's location. The traveller then has to try to stay alive until rescue arrives.12

Greater halflight charm

A greater halflight charm is reserved for only those who have significantly impressed the Duskwardens, for instance, saving one of their lives. These items are never knowingly sold or traded as they hold a respect and cachet amongst the organization.

The enhanced charm benefits the wearer's senses: allowing them to react more quickly to threats, and to see in the dark. Once per year, a wearer may immediately teleport their nominated Duskwarden, fully equipped, to wherever they are.2
