ON-icon-quest-Letter 02.png Name Ancestral Breton: Axes Value (?)
Reginus Buca
The color of the ink is curious. Either it's aged exceedingly poorly, or the author used a pigment made from crushed berries. Was this an attempt to appear close to the ancients he described or perhaps, more likely, a lack of funding?

Do you see those sketches in the margins? It's an old symbol Druids still use as a mark of their combined circles. Finding that symbol outside of Druid lands probably means the site is from 330 1E. Possibly even older!

ON-icon-stolen-Sextant.png Name Ancient Mariner's Sextant Value (?)
Ugron gro-Thumog
A solid piece made of brass and other metals, I date this to the era of the Breton Coinlords. Say 1E 2330, give or take a decade. A well-preserved if unremarkable example of that period in history.
Gabrielle Benele
A fair assessment, my friend, but what of the broader socio-political context of this item? My people committed some truly barbarous acts during their time as rulers of the Systres Archipelago. Does that not bear mentioning?
Ugron gro-Thumog
A good note, Gabrielle, thank you. I was planning to write a small paper on some of the relics coming in from the Systres. Let's co-author a piece and incorporate just this angle in our findings. I will follow up.

ON-icon-furnishing-High Isle Map.png Name Antique Map of High Isle Value (?)
Reginus Buca
This looks to be a map of High Isle, but there are some ports I've never heard of. Rockroost? Castle Notte? I'll study it more closely, but that may take some time. The parchment is very thin and weathered. This map must be exceedingly old.
Amalien
See that smudge in the corner? It looks like there was something drawn there! The basic outline isn't familiar, perhaps a druid made it? Their symbols put even Aldmeri runes to shame in terms of intricacy!
Verita Numida
That smudge--as you so inaccurately put it--is an eighth of the sigil of Admiral Bendu Olo. If this map of High Isle bears his personal seal, and not that of the Empire, then it likely dates beck to 1E 2241.

ON-icon-fragment-Asp-Leather Strap.png Name Asp-Leather Strap Value N/A
Amalien
Well, this is a vicious looking accessory! Clearly some sort of snake skin, but I don't recognize the pattern. Looks a bit like those sep adders you find around Hew's Bane. Much bigger though! Maybe it's some giant, slithery cousin.
Verita Numida
I'm no naturalist, but I'd guess this came from a Yath Asp. We're lucky they never made it to Tamriel. The Crowns say they're huge, have a temper like Malooc, and used to serve Lefthanded Elves as pets--and also maybe garments by the looks of it.
Ugron gro-Thumog
According to Yokudan histories, the boundary between pet and livestock was a hazy line for the Lefthanders. Yath Asp leather was stout stuff--resistant to cuts and gouges. It was the perfect material for a stylish war girdle.

ON-icon-fragment-Black Eltheric Pearls.png Name Black Eltheric Pearls Value N/A
Amalien
Oh, black pearls! According to the Bedtime Tales of Borwaeliel, they're the result of Trinimac slicing off a handful of Hermaeus Mora's beady little eyes and scattering them across the Eltheric. So, be careful handling them!
Reginus Buca
Fairy tales aside, deep black pearls like this have fascinating origins. Some occur naturally, but most come from Maormer pearl farms where Surfpeelers insert snake scales into Pyandonean Snap-Mussels. It's an interesting--if unsettling--process.
Gabrielle Benele
I read a treatise on Sea Elf pearl culturing as a teenager. I had a lot of free time! Anyway, there was some debate about whether mer-made pearls had alchemical potential similar to natural pearls. Based on this discovery, I think they do!

One might think this was a broom made for exceptionally small people. It is indeed fashioned like a broom, but you can tell by the softness of the bristles (even after all this time) that it was more likely used for blending ingredients.

Reginus Buca
I believe this eyeball twitches to stare at me while I'm not looking. Unsettling, to say the least. Deadric origin, I believe, but which Deadra? Unsure.
Ugron gro-Thumog
I took a tome on Daedric oddities from the shelf, and by Mauloch, I think the eye followed my hand straight to the text. As if it was reading it. Has to be a Watcher eyeball, right? Right?
Gabrielle Benele
This thing definitely moves of its own accord, but I don't know if that indicates life, or just an unsettling enchantment. I'm obliged to wonder, if this eye can perceive what we're doing, is there someone watching on the other end?

ON-icon-fragment-Clay Cooling Pitcher.png Name Clay Cooling Pitcher Value N/A

Druids of old often tempered their clay with wood ash and plant fibers. I think this is one such example. With the sheer width of the bottom of this pitcher, I would guess it was used to cool extremely hot liquids during cooking.

ON-icon-fragment-Dov-rha Sabaton Guard.png Name Dov-rha Sabaton Guard Value N/A
Reginus Buca
I have never seen something quite like this. Clearly it's the shin-piece from sabatons of the highest quality, but I'm not sure it's even steel. I think these overlapping scale-like bits might be dragonhide!
Amalien
Definitely dragonhide. How exciting! I have heard of Dragon fangs and talons used for weapons, but arms and armor crafted from dragonhide are extraordinarily rare. Whoever wore this must have been a mighty hero or a great king indeed!
Ugron go-Thumog
These belong to a Dov-rha axethane of the 1E Nord Empire--the kings of Skyrim awarded their bravest warriors with armor crafted from Dragons. Likely handed down for generations until a Nord hero of the All Flags Navy brought them to High Isle.

ON-icon-fragment-Dov-rha Sabaton Heel.png Name Dov-rha Sabaton Heel Value N/A
Reginus Buca
This piece belongs to a First Era Nord sabaton of unusual design. The draconic embellishments suggest the wearer was a hero of high regard. But how it got to the Systres, I couldn't say.
Amalien
The sabatons must have belonged to one of the heroes who came to High Isle with the All Flags Navy in the First Era. People from all over Tamriel joined the expedition to meet the threat of the Sload.
Ugron go-Thumog
Amalien is correct. Many Nords joined the All Flags Navy, including a band known as the Dov-rha Axethanes. They were elite warriors who served as guards and champions to the kings of Skyrim in the last years of the First Era.

ON-icon-fragment-Dov-rha Sabaton Lames.png Name Dov-rha Sabaton Lames Value N/A
Reginus Buca
Articulated bands of ancient steel, likely Nord in origin. I believe these are the lames of a pair of sabatons, or armored boots. These bands protected the top of the wearer's foot.
Amalien
These belong to the sabatons of no ordinary warrior. Only a Nord champion of the highest standing would wear armor forged with a draconic motif. I think it belonged to a previously unknown Dragonborn!
Ugron go-Thumog
Not every Nord who masters the Voice is a Dragonborn. Yes, a Tongue is a great champion, and wields a power akin to a Dragon's. But the kings of Skyrim often chose such heroes to be their elite guards and captains.

ON-icon-fragment-Dov-rha Sabaton Poleyn.png Name Dov-rha Sabaton Poleyn Value N/A
Reginus Buca
Quite a find! This is a steel poleyn, or knee-plate, from an armored sabaton. The steel appears to be of Nord manufacture, First Era. However, I do not recognize the motif. I think it's supposed to represent a Dragon's face?
Amalien
I'm not so sure that this is of Nord make at all. The Dragons of the early First Era sometimes made alliances with lucky mortals, and bestowed arms and armor as gifts to those who fought at their side.
Ugron go-Thumog
Indeed. Ancient Nord chronicles sometimes mention Dov-rha warriors or Dov-rha thanes ... dov-rha being a Nordic word for Dragon. But only a great champion or beloved chief would wear armor of this sort.

ON-icon-fragment-Dov-rha Sabaton Toe Cap.png Name Dov-rha Sabaton Toe Cap Value N/A
Reginus Buca
A remarkable find. This is a piece of a sabaton, or armored footwear. It appears Nord in origin, but the draconic embellishments are very unusual. I date it to the Nord Empire, fourth or fifth century 1E.
Amalien
Dragons sometimes formed alliances with mortals and gave their allies powerful gifts. The Dragon Nahfahlaar once gave his horn to the Khajiit hero Ja'darri. I suspect this armor might have been a Dragon's gift, too. But to whom?
Ugron go-Thumog
Gift, or tribute? King Olaf One-Eye took the Dragon Numinex captive around that time. I have heard the Dragon paid for its life by providing the kings of Skyrim with draconic armor. Rewards for great champions.

ON-icon-furnishing-Draoife Storystone.png Name Draoife Storystone Value (?)
Ugron gro-Thumog
You wouldn't expect a bunch of vinebeards to be master stonecutters, but the druids really knew how to work a chisel. You find megaliths like this all over the Systres, but this one is in particularly good shape.
Verita Numida
Stonelore druids call sculptures like this storystones. They depict major figures in their ruling council, the Draoife, mark major events, and some even serve as stargazing tools, though I've never seen one used in that way.
Reginus Buca
People find the primacy of stone in druid culture unusual, but really, stone is no less natural than trees. What's unique about the druids is their belief in manmer's ability to enhance or perfect nature. Quite unlike other animists like the Wyrd.

Druidic artifacts are not my area of expertise, but I think it's quite hard to argue that this is of druid make. While the mortar is long gone, I believe this pestle was used for food stuffs rather than any magic or poultices. The design is thinner.

ON-icon-trait material-Sapphire.png Name Frigid Sapphire Value N/A
Gabrielle Benele
This stone is cold to the touch! Strange, considering I don't detect any frost-related enchantments. Gems infused with mystic spellcraft sometimes turn cold. No one knows why. It must have some power over perception or natural limitations.
Amalien
I saw a gem like this at the College of Sapiarchs once. It was part of a collection of focal relics—items that magnify perception or dampen unruly phenomena during rituals. Maybe this aids with concentration? I could use something like that!
Verita Numida
I'm more interested in its origins than its powers. This gem cutting technique is foreign to me. It almost looks like a lapidary tumbled it in a sand pail after the final cuts. Sea Elves favor unusual cuts. I wager this came from Pyandonea.

ON-icon-fragment-Gilded Disk.png Name Gilded Disk Value N/A
Verita Numida
A golden disk? Without the other pieces, it's difficult to tell what it belonged to. Some kind of jewelry, I should think, but it's far too large for a crown or necklace. The inlays appear vaguely Yokudan, but different. Lefthander, perhaps?
Gabrielle Benele
I've seen this shape before. The configuration lends itself to defensive enchantments. You typically find it embossed on shields, but given size, maybe this belonged to a belt? That setting in the center must have supported a massive jewel!
Ugron gro-Thumog
It's from a belt, all right--a Lefthander shield-girdle. According to Zirad's Guide to Yokuda, Lefthanded Elves worked hard to protect the abdomen because that was the throne of the soul. Also, no one likes being disemboweled.

I've only seen two other onyx gems like this--both in Na-Totambu tombs in Hammerfell. The sheer size is astounding, but its origins are far more exciting. To my knowledge, the only place onyxes like this can be found is Yokuda!
Ugron gro-Thumog
I met a Redguard in Sentinel who swears that the peak-mines of Hattu Mountain still hold a fortune in jewels like this. Just a matter of getting at them. Hunding Zealots make it hard to get anything done there. Real shame.
Verita Numida
According to my studies, most of the onyx mines in pre-Ra Gada Yokuda were seized from the Lefthanded Elves as spoils of war. The Redguards' ancestors never really developed the knack for this sort of gemcutting. I think this is a Lafthander [sic] relic.

ON-icon-fragment-Igneous Inlays.png Name Igneous Inlays Value N/A
Verita Numida
These flakes of igneous rock are very delicate. Given the size and the patterning, I'd say an ancient jeweler used them as accent pieces in a ring or necklace. Their iridescence is quite fetching.
Gabrielle Benele
We often see volcanic jewelry coming out of the Systres--part of the druidic tradition, I'm told. They hold their Mount Firesong, in very high esteem. Whoever wore a ring with these flakes inlaid must have been a figure of import.
Amalien
Dark Elves love their volcanoes, but yes, I understand that an entire circle of druids base their religion around Firesong. I read that it represents immovable strength. Maybe the magic invested in these flakes has something to do with that?

ON-icon-fragment-Larimar Gems.png Name Larimar Gems Value N/A
Amalien
I've seen stones like this in High Rock, but rarely. It almost resembles turquoise, but brighter and creamier. Like a Topal Sea blue. Lovely! There must be more to it, though. You see these etchings? I don't recognize the shapes.
Ugron gro-Thumog
The stone's larimar. Merchants in Daggerfall call it sea-stone because of the color. So far as I'm aware, it only exists in the Systres archipelago. Makes it very expensive and very, very rare. As far as the etchings are concerned, I'm stumped.
Gabrielle Benele
The etchings are draoifoglyphs--druidic runes. It's not my area of expertise, but I think they say something like, to root or to grasp firmly. The stones feel a bit heavy, don't they? Maybe they're meant to hold something in place.

ON-icon-fragment-Lurker-skin Sheath.png Name Lurker-skin Sheath Value N/A
Gabrielle Benele
This armor sheathing bears more than a passing resemblance to the skin of the creatures known as Lurkers. These beings serve the Daedric Prince Hermaeus Mora, and are rarely seen beyond the plane of Apocrypha.
Ugron gro-Thumog
By examining the edges of this sheathing, I've noted that this skin appears to have been harvested from a living being. Whether this was done willingly or not is hard to tell.
Reginus Buca
Well noted, Ugron, but the skin lives still. My research indicates that some sort of alchemical treatment might be preserving this sheathing in a state of quasi-life. Further study is required. Unfortunately.

ON-icon-fragment-Meteoric Beads.png Name Meteoric Beads Value N/A
Ugron gro-Thumog
Don't often see beads hewn from meteoric glass. From my experience, the arcane potential of the glass has a lot to do with its physical dimensions. Based on the holes here, I'd say they were strung on a chain or thread to make some kind of necklace.
Gabrielle Benele
I've never studied smaller shards of meteoric glass working in concert, but it's possible that stringing these beads together on a magical conductor--an enchanted chain, for instance--they might exhibit power comparable to a larger, intact shard!
Verita Numida
If meteoric beads like this have real magical potential, it's strange that you don't see more mages wearing them. I discovered a bead like this in a Sea Elf wreck near Vulkhel Guard. Maybe the Pyandoneans are the only ones who've mastered the craft.

I nearly missed it, but there's a prayer to an Elk of Arrows woven into this cowl. Given the location and age, I would argue this cowl is evidence of overlap between the druid's True Way and Reach theology. Don't balk! Hircine and the druids actually have quite a bit in common. What is more willful and valuable in nature than the relationship between hunter and hunted? The natural cycle of life and death is Y'ffre's will too!

Gabrielle Benele
A funerary urn made of purest orichalcum, tooled in a style I have seen only rarely. The runes are clearly not of the Tamrielic continent, and the imagery makes heavy use of winged figures. To answer your inquiry, Ugron, without opening it I cannot in good concious [sic] say whether this is a burial urn for the fabled Sinistral Elves. I have contacted famed researcher Trilam Heladren at the University of Gwylim for consultation.

You don't often see something like this. It looks like part of a ring, certainly, but it's not metallic. I've seen rings made from vines and bits of shell, but nothing like this. It's some sort of stone.
Verita Numida
You came close to the truth, Reginus, as usual. This appears to be some kind of petrified wood. Difficult to tell what kind based on its size, but given the terrain, I'd hypothesize that it's some manner of oak.
Gabrielle Benele
Wood Elves adore working with petrified wood, but this doesn't show any signs of Elven craftsmanship. It's of Breton make. Given the magic its radiating, I'd wager a druid made this at least eight hundred years ago. Probably more!

Given the age of this pouch, it's miraculous that this resin has retained its viscosity. Resin stored in this way could have a dozen uses--mostly medicinal, but also aesthetic. Khajiit on the Valenwood border sometimes use it as armor varnish.
Amalien
Do you smell that? It's odoriferous oak resin. Some people call it the Tears of Y'ffre. Wood Elves argue about whether Green Pact permits its use, but nature worshipers in Summerset and High Rock use it all the time in Jephre-worshiping ceremonies.
Gabrielle Benele
In High Rock, we mostly hear about the Wyrd sisters using Y'ffre Tears in their witch's brews, but I read it also played a large role in druidic spellcraft. They'd apply it to their staves, wax their beards with it, and so on. Fascinating!

This has to be one of the most distasteful antiquities I've ever had to catalogue. It's still twitching. This tentacle matches the description of no living being on Nirn. Clearly a Daedric relic of some kind.
Ugron gro-Thumog
Runes have been etched quite deftly into the soft flesh. Hmm. Hard to make out what this inscription means, but I can make out Hekhem and Meht. Tentative examination suggests it is from a Daedric Watcher.
Reginus Buca

ON-icon-furnishing-Sea Elf Galleon Helm.png Name Sea Elf Galleon Helm Value N/A

A fascinating design, not something you're likely to see in a Tamrielic navy, obviously. Its origin is no doubt Pyandonea, the home of the Sea Elves. Though, it's worth noting, their designs tend to be more pragmatic than this extravagant piece.
Verita Numida
The traditional serpent head design is also absent. I believe this is a helm from the fleet of Admiral Uhlchesis, a cultist of Hermaeus Mora and scourge of the Eltheric Ocean.
Reginus Buca
It's said that Admiral Uhlchesis' fleet raided the shores of Alinor more than a dozen times before his dark master called him to Apocrypha. They sacked enough gold for a hundred helms, though most of his ships were thought lost after their leader left Nirn.

What a delicate piece! Crafting links this small would be a laborious process, but the results speak for themselves. It's certainly Elven. Maormer, I should think, based on the pattern and the bluish hue of the silver.
Amalien
You're right, Reginus. This is Sea Elf work. According to legend, King Orgnum was the first person on Tamriel to work in silver. He drew it out of the ground like splinters from a wound. Strange, given that he's a creepy vampire wizard!
Gabrielle Benele
The chain's enchantments are extraordinary! They seem bound to the concept of focus at the expense of potential outcomes. Not unlike Psijic time-hewing. Paring down choice is a dangerous prospect, but there must be some utility to it.

Coils and coils of this thread, definitely made from the sinews of a Daedra.I [sic] sense an unpleasant warmth still radiating from the relic. Why a Seeker's corpse would be utilized in such a fashion is hard to fathom.
Ugron gro-Thumog
I contacted a colleague from the Mages Guild to have a look at this. A great deal of magicka was expended during its creation. According to my associate, close examination of the relic could result in a splitting headache and a long bout of aphasia.
Reginus Buca
I took some time to reread Elizanev's Treatise on Otherworldly Garments. Apparently, when threaded through a needle and sewn into a piece of linen, this thread will make the linen move and undulate in a distasteful and organic fashion. Horrific!

What a curious relic. It's a belt clasp, certainly, but the metal and configuration are quite unique. Do you see how it cinches from the left? This may have belonged to a Lefthander noble from ancient Yokuda!
Ugron gro-Thumog
This metal looks like an alloy--nine parts steel and one part orichalcum. Redguards call it Singersteel. According to the myths, the Yokudans used orichalc to drive the Elves out. Maybe the Lefthanders got their hands on a bit of orichalcum as well?
Amalien
There's a story about The HoonDing Gong. Apparently, Diagna crashed his fist against it and swords fell from the walls of the Orichalc Tower like needles from a dry pine! I wouldn't tell a Crown that Lefthanders made belts from sacred metal!

ON-icon-fragment-Smoothed Stone Grinder.png Name Smoothed Stone Grinder Value N/A
Reginus Buca
The base of this strange pot has a hollow compartment. I believe this is where grain was stored. The top half acts as a grinder, so that the grain can be made into a paste with relative ease. A very smart druidic invention. Fascinating!

ON-icon-fragment-Steel Serpent Fangs.png Name Steel Serpent Fangs Value N/A
Gabrielle Benele
These bits of metal seem forged to resemble snake fangs. Never a good sign. I can't say for certain, but given the irregular finish and these scratches, I'd say they're a few hundred years old at least. Mid to late 1E, for certain.
Amalien
I've seen adornments like this before--far too many times. They're Sea Elf charms. Sailors wear them on ankle bracelets, necklaces, and earrings in honor of their disgusting snake-king, Orgnum. Fair warning: They're almost certainly cursed!
Ugron gro-Thumog
These are of Sea Elf make, but they're not like the trinkets that pirates wear now. See this banding? This is venom-crucible steel. Sea Elves stopped making it due to the cost of the materials. It's a wicked kind of metal, but still, masterful work.

ON-icon-fragment-Stone Shank Frame.png Name Stone Shank Frame Value N/A
Verita Numida
I adore gold jewelry, but this stone framing does have a rustic charm. The central groove seems ground down to accommodate a second loop. Even without the central element, though, it's lovely. And at least a thousand years old, I should think.
Gabrielle Benele
You see this grinding method in pre-Direnni High Rock antiquities--mostly in cookware, though, not jewelry. Whoever made it was a true master of both stonecraft and magic. It radiates protective energies. Something akin to a shielding spell.
Ugron gro-Thumog
This is a real find. This framing bridges the gap between Nedic stonework and early Direnni aesthetics and draws from the best of both traditions. Druids were master stonecutters and fair hands at magic--I'd say they made this.

[[File:(?)|64px]] Name Stonelore Circle Effigy Value (?)
Ugron gro-Thumog
An excellent find. An early example of druidic craftsmanship from the Systres Archipelago, I think. You can tell based on the knotwork around the edges, Wyrd symbology from elsewhere uses entirely different patterns.
Gabrielle Benele
Observe, too, how they've explored the concept of the True Way through various symbolic imagery. The transition between pre-circle and post-circle culture is still evident, with some elements disappearing even a few years after this piece was made.
Ugron gro-Thumog
One of the elements I find most interesting is these leftover reliefs showcasing the Archdruid. A figure of great debate among scholars, after the breaking of the druids into different sects his symbology disappears almost overnight.

ON-icon-fragment-Totambu Chrysocollas.png Name Totambu Chrysocollas Value N/A
Verita Numida
These unique gems were considered a sign of royalty in Yokuda since before the rise of the Na-Totambu. It has something to do with the golden inclusions, I believe. The Yokudan's enemies, the Lefthanded Elves, embedded them in many of their weapons.
Reginus Buca
I find the entire Sinistral Mer narrative unconvincing. Lefthanded Elves? What does that even mean? In any case, yes, the Chrysocollas were not just a sign of royalty, but also a symbol of invincibility in battle. Oft enchanted, or so I've read.
Ugron gro-Thumog
Chrysocollas are strongly associated with defense, but in the Yoku tongue, the term defense is just a different tense of offense. They placed far less emphasis on defense as a concept that than the Lefthanders did. This is definitely Elven.

ON-icon-fragment-Twitching Eyeball.png Name Twitching Eyeball Value N/A
Gabrielle Benele
A most distressing relic, I must say. This thing is still leaking ocular fluid? It is not an eye from a mortal race, I can tell you that. Leaving further examination for colleagues with stronger stomachs.
Ugron gro-Thumog
I can confirm this unusual relic comes from no creature of Nirn. My assumption is that it might be from a Daedric Watcher, but that would be pure conjecture. I imagine it has a deeply unpleasant smell.
Reginus Buca
The normally soft and pliable sclera has a hard, almost keratin-esque quality to it. I wouldn't advise handling it with bare hands. Objects like this often leave stains that are impossible to wash off.

ON-icon-fragment-Woodfire Chamber.png Name Woodfire Chamber Value N/A
Reginus Buca
This appears to be part of a larger whole. The pieces on the top and bottom seem jagged, as if broken apart, but the chamber itself remains intact. The scorchmarks indicate this was perhaps some kind of small oven? Maybe it served other functions.

ON-icon-fragment-Woven Straining Bowl.png Name Woven Straining Bowl Value N/A
Verita Numida
The craftsmanship on this piece is quite stunning, and remarkably well preserved. It would not take an expert to know that this is some kind of strainer. The holes are carefully placed. But a keen eye like mine also spotted the druidic style of weaving.
