Poll: What Elfstone or Elfstones Would You Want To Possess?

Let’s say you are Elven.

Let’s say you live in the Four Lands.

Let’s say you have need of magic but have no inherit ability to wield it.

The Elfstones would be for you. And there are different sorts of them. The blue seeking Elfstones. The black magic-negating Elfstone. Even the city-moving Loden is considered one of the Stones. And most recently, Terry introduced the Crimson Elfstones, a set of stones that drain life away from enemies even as it fundamentally — and apparently catatonically — changes the user.

Now, along with the Blue and Crimson sets of Elfstones, there are three more sets that were sent back into the Forbidding — Emerald, Saffron, and White. The abilities of these last three sets are unknown, although the Shannara video game in the ’90s featured Emerald Elfstones that had the capacity to heal as they aged the user. No idea if the Emerald set in the Forbidding does the same thing or not.

Which brings us to our poll question of the day:

If you were Elven, which Elfstone or set of Elfstones would you want to possess and wield?

And if you pick a Emerald, Saffron, or White set of Elfstones, what would you want those Elfstones to do? Feel free to comment below for why you voted the way you did.

Happy Friday!
