House of Histories

The House of Histories is a museum in Riverhold. The entrance can be found at the rear of a building on the western side of town. The interior consists of an initial landing area and a basement area where an ancient mural called the Rithana-di-Renada is displayed.


The Hall of Histories is where you learn that an ancient mural has been broken. You are asked by the museum's curators to find the missing panels and return them. You will find the pieces out in the world, and return them to the mural in The Kingdoms Exhibit. When you collect them all, the museum will celebrate, and you will be asked to find a legendary missing piece of the mural: a singing crystal.
