Luststone

This discussion post is in regards to the mysterious material shown in Act X, the lust-inducing metal known as Luststone.

While resembling the likes of the ancient metals of the forgotten Cities of Eden and their key fragments, this stuff is clearly different in a noticeable way. As it was shown when the girls stumbled across in in Twilight's study, even a small piece of this rare and mystical steel can drive any monster, even a succubus, to the brink of what extreme pleasure and lust can be, and then take them even further, whether they're prepared or willing for it or not. A small hand-sized rod of the stuff would be enough to reduce any monster to a wailing, moaning, convulsing, mindless husk who drowns in sheer pleasure that's instilled into every fiber of her being. As Twilight firmly warned the girls, prolonged exposure to this stone will drive any monster mad, robbing them of their senses and turning them into slaves of the luststone that they will obsess over forever. To humans, it's powerless. To monsters, it's incredibly dangerous.

So that raises a few questions. Where might more of this stone be found? What others may know of it, either in fear or obsession? How dangerous could this be in the world? And worse yet, if a small rod can bring a monster to her knees in sheer ecstasy, what would a large amount of it do? Make no mistake, luststone will come into play in this story again, it's just a matter of what pleasures, or nightmares, it will bring with it.

When I first heard of this strange object, I wondered what relevance it would have in future installments. There's little doubt that its existence in Twilight's library is important, especially seeing as it was hiding inside a hollowed-out book. I wonder why it was there in the first place. . . .

Could it be that Twilight's prison cell is made of the material? She seemed very knowledgeable about the luststone and, is it possible, a little cautious? This was the first time Twilight's hidden temper slipped when talking to the girls. Granted, this could merely have to do with Twilight's plans. She wants Daniel to be as powerful as possible when she's released so she can absorb his magic. If Specca or any of the other girls died, it would greatly impact Daniel's heart and therefore powers.

Seeing as luststone only affects monsters, it could prove to be a very dangerous item. For those who stumble across it, monsters would have no idea what it is until it's too late. For humans who despise monsters, luststone could be used as a vicious weapon. If a small amount is enough to incapacitate a monster, a large mass of it could either kill or totally destroy them, so you can imagine how humans could abuse it.

Like the Cities of Eden and the Keys of Eden, the luststone appears to be the remnant of a long, lost society. So, it leaves one to wonder: who created the luststone and why? What was it used for? How does it connect to Eden’s past?
