ON-icon-furniture-Hew's Bane Map.png Name Antique Map of Hew's Bane Value N/A
Amalien
I believe this is a map of Hew's Bane. It has a very distinctive shape. Does anyone else think it looks like a horse?
Reginus Buca
Prince Hew set up the first sembalnces [sic] of a city near the harbor on the east side of the peninsula. It wasn't much at first, but over time it transformed into a sprawling commercial port, despite the harsh environment.
Verita Numida
You make it sound so glorious, Reginus! The truth is that Price Hew was a irresponsible clod. This maps don't tell the full tale of his blundering.

ON-icon-stolen-Wig.png Name Halved Lion's Mane Wig Piece Value 250
Amalien
What an incredible piece! I'm sure the lion hair was incredibly expensive, especially at the time. This probably belonged to one of the powerful merchant families of Hew's Bane. Maybe a symbol of their power passed down through generations!
Ugron gro-Thumog
This thing is hideous. I don't think any self-respecting merchant lord would wear this, much less have it specifically made for them. There has to be something more to this. Look at the stitching! That kind of detail would take months to perfect.
Verita Numida
Music rarely offers a true account, but one Redguard folksong describes several bizarre costuming fads that took hold in Prince Hubalajad's court. Fake beards, not wigs, were briefly in fashion. Sadly, tailors often died trying to procure the materials.

ON-icon-quest-Dwarven Part 02.png Name Coiled Serpent Lock Value 1,000
Gabrielle Benele
More snakes! Honestly, it seems like they appear in every corner of Tamriel! I don't recognize the aesthetic here. It certainly isn't Yokudan. The locking mechanism seems quite sophisticated, though.
Verita Numida
Look closer. These snakes bear all the traits of early Maormer craftsmanship. In fact, I think it would be more accurate to call them sea serpents. You can tell from the shape of the snout and that distinctive head-frill.
Reginus Buca
The hinterlands of Hew's Bane crawled with Maomer [sic] slavers in the latter years of the First Era. According to local legends, one group used "snake magic" and ensorcelled locks when capturing slaves to ensure that they remained docile and compliant.

ON-icon-stolen-Female Portrait.png Name Portrait of Lady Vadaya Value 5,000
Reginus Buca
You may have discovered the spoils of the fledgling Theives [sic] Guild's first heist in Abah's Landing! Few families could match the power of the Vadaya family during the high days of merchant rule. Lady Vadaya commissioned an elaborate portrait of herself, only to have it stolen out from under her nose and replaced with a fake. Unwilling to lose face, the Vadayas accused the rival Mizh family of orchestrating the theft, pitting the two houses against one another to this very day.

ON-icon-furniture-Yokudan Skystone Scabbard.png Name Yokudan Skystone Scabbard Value N/A
Amalien
What a gorgeous scabbard. I suspect this belonged to a high-ranking Yokudan warrior—perhaps even a sword saint! I'm especially intrigued by this array of stones. They must be aetherial fragments of some kind.
Gabrielle Benele
You're likely right, Amalien. Yokudans wielded powerful magic where stones were concerned. The Redguards' distaste for magic makes discussing it a little awkward. But these stones absolutely possessed some magical potency.
Amalien
Sort of begs the question: why did a Yokudan warrior who could call a magical sword to hand at will need a scabbard? I guess this could have been purely ornamental. Or maybe having a physical anchor made summoning the weapon easier.

ON-icon-furniture-Morwha's Blessing.png Name Morwha's Blessing Value N/A
Ugron gro-Thumog
It's rare to find a Yokudan statue that isn't wielding a sword. Well done. This looks like a depiction of Morwha--the fertility goddess. Based on the items she's holding, I'd say this statue came from Yokuda itself.
Reginus Buca
A fair observation, Ugron. Ra Gada-era sculptors rarely took the time to render softer details like those flowers. Bloody conquest took priority. The lack of orichalc does give me pause, though. Yokudan statuary normally features a metallic element.
Verita Numida
Look at the stone. This Morwha's rendered in gypsum alabaster--a favored material of the Yokudans' hated enemies, the Sinistral Mer. The sculptor probably acquired the stone during the early days of the Ra Gada, thus explaining the lack of orichalc.
