The Traveler Medallion

The Traveler

Ancient symbol for protection while traveling. Specifics of this symbol are unknown but elements of its design are common to the rose compass. Possibly Roma / Gypsy. The Roma are originally from India, migrating to Europe and North Africa via the Iranian plateau around 1050 A.D.

The traveler is also a role that has been played throughout history by many powerful tricksters and shapeshifters of god-like power.

In Dungeons and Dragons, Faith of Ebberon, the symbol of the Traveler is an eight-pointed configuration of four crossed and rune-inscribed bones. The Traveler is said to walk the world in many forms. His domains are Artifice, Celerity, Chaos, Charm, Creation, Liberation, Travel, and Trickery.
