1. triskelion
 [Related Image] A symbol consisting of three identical protrusions radiating from a central point. Also known as a triskele, it has its origins in various ancient cultures, including Greek and Celtic. It is from the latter culture's spiral triskelion that the legged version used as a symbol for the Isle of Man is derived. It is often accompanied in this use by the isle's Latin motto, 'Quocunque Jeceris Stabit' - wherever you will have thrown it, it will stand. It is perhaps no coincidence that the Arken Shield bore an arcane triskelion, had been split into three segments and, when united and cast at Lord Fear, held fast over him while dungeoneer Julie (Team 6 of Series 7) fled the room.
