| Artifact: Moon-and-Star (moon_and_star)
Moon-and-Star is a Dwarven ring of Chimer hero Nerevar. The artifact was forged by one of the smiths of Dwemer Sorcerer-priest Kagrenac and blessed by the Daedric Goddess Azura. The ring lent Nerevar supernatural powers of persuasion and indisputable proof of identity, since any other who tried to wear it would be killed instantly. The Moon-and-Star helped Nerevar unite the warring Chimer clans, and form the First Council which included the Dwemer.
Moon-and-Star played a role in the Nerevarine Prophecies, as it allowed the Nerevarine, the reincarnation of Nerevar, to again unite the Great Houses and Ashlander clans, this time in the battle against the forces of Dagoth Ur.
- Despite lore indicating that only the Nerevarine can wear the ring safely, NPCs will not die if they equip it. This can either be attributed to embellished legends or simply an oversight or decision not to create a script for such a scenario.
- If you're wearing the ring and you use your Speechcraft you may get the message that your Speechcraft improved to 101. Once you remove the ring you will find that your Speechcraft has gone to 96, so if your Speechcraft already was 100 you have just lost 4 points.
