The Flint

'This is only a stone, though it is smoothed and

sharpened to a midnight point, but look closer. Each

of its facets shows a single point of light. It might be

the glint of firelight. It might be each a different Star.'

The Flint was one of the old gods-from-stone worshipped before humanity and slain in the Lithomachy. It is described as a smooth stone sharpened to a midnight point, whose facets glint with light. It seems to have filled a similar role to the Forge, the Hour which killed it, as an Hour of fire and creation. The Flint is believed to be some some sort of proto-Forge, due to its connection to fire and “the arts of shaping and remaking”.[1][2][3][4]



The Lithomachy: The Flint was killed and sent to Nowhere by the Forge, who “eclipsed and shattered” them.[2]
