Moon-and-Star is a Dwarven ring of the 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.

The ring is received from Azura in the Cavern of the Incarnate during the Third Trial of the Main Quest. See The Path of the Incarnate quest for more information.


  • 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.
  • Wearing this ring and then taking it off may cause NPCs with formerly maxed disposition to like you less if they saw you when you had the ring on. This is due to a glitch with how Personality boosts work.
