ON-icon-quest-Letter 02.png Name Ancestral High Elf: Axes Value 13
Amalien
This book has some kind of material spread on it. It's almost waxy in appearance. It must have been some kind of resin to preserve the pages … and it seems to have done the job!

Amalien
I love the sass in this entry! I don't think it was necessarily meant to be funny, but the "needlessly large buckle" part made me laugh out loud!

ON-icon-stolen-Pipe.png Name Khenarthi Skooma Pipe Value 250
Reginus Buca
A beautiful piece. Someone very meticuously [sic] carved this to resemble a winged-cat, but still took the time to make it a functioning pipe, though it's thicker than most modern ones.
Amalien
This has to be Khenarthi, right? I wonder if all pipes made around this time were modeled after her. Or if they started as idols and then turned into pipes along the way? It looks like this one is holding something in its claws.
Reginus Buca
Upon closer inspection, I wonder if these were made ironically. Khenarthi is said to carry the souls to the Sands Behind the Stars. Perhaps she's carrying the soul of someone who indulged a bit too much.

ON-icon-quest-Letter 02.png Name Ancestral High Elf: Helmets Value 13
Amalien
It must have been so beautiful to see the sun gleaming off the eagle-like helms of this army. While reading this, I could picture it with such clarity! I wonder what that means ….

ON-icon-quest-Letter 02.png Name Ancestral High Elf: Staves Value 13
Amalien
I like to imagine myself as a smith during this time, following these directions. It must have been terrifying to try and make something to these grand specifications. The pressure is unimaginable

ON-icon-stolen-Stick with String.png Name Ancient Fishing Rod Value 1,000
Reginus Buca
Despite it's [sic] age, this design doesn't look too different from modern day fishing rods. The embellishments are certainly unique, though. A lot of Khenarthi specific imagery. I doubt the additional weight made it any easier to fish.
Verita Numida
Keep in mind, the Khajiit of this area were renowned fishermen. Their innovations vastly exceeded others of the time, and they took it very seriously. These embellishments were likely a token of respect and revereance [sic] rather than functionality.
Amalien
There are stories of a famous fisherman around this time named Fazjum. In one of them, he caught a Desert Sucker the size of a horse that was terrorizing the waters. He was said to have a fishing rod exactly like this!

ON-icon-misc-Sword Blade.png Name Pilazjo's Training Blade Value 5,000
Reginus Buca
Pilazjo was a legendary Khenarthian Rawlith Khaj master who trained from an early age on the Isle of Three Temples. A jealous king traded him to Ne Quin-al as part of a pact of friendship between their two kingdoms. Common practice at the time, but very difficult for Pilazjo himself. The warrior left a collection of blunted training swords in his home adeptiorium [sic] as a reminder to the hadaliit he left behind. These swords became precious heirlooms--locked away in adeptoriums throughout Elsweyr.

ON-icon-furniture-Sweet Khenarthi's Song.png Name Sweet Khenarthi's Song Value N/A
Gabrielle Benele
I've always loved Khajiiti needlework. The color and texture on this tapestry are tremendous, despite its age. I don't want to jump to conclusions, but I suspect that winged figure is an artist's depiction of Khenarthi--the Khajiiti goddess of the wind.
Ugron gro-Thumog
Yeah, it's Khenarthi. She seems to be ushering that spectral Khajiit somewhere--presumably the Sands Behind the Stars. Khajiiti and Nord theology both present Kynareth as a guide to paradise. Odd considering how remote each civilization is from the other.
Reginus Buca
It's not odd at all! Choice plays a central role in the process of death and rebirth for both Nords and Khajiit. Both have to earn their way to paradise. Kyne and Khenarthi reward courage and faithfulness respectively. A personal escort makes sense.

ON-icon-furniture-Cat's Eye Prism.png Name Cat's Eye Prism Value N/A
Reginus Buca
From the design of the plinth, I'd date this back to early First Era--at least a millennia before the Thrassian illness laid Elsweyr low. I doubt any of the sixteen kingdom outside Pellitine would have had the resources to craft something like this.
Verita Numida
Odd to find it in Khenarthi's Roost, unless Khenarthia was a client state of Pa'alatiin by that point. As for the crystal itself, I've never seen the like. I've found similar opal spheres used in Magrus worship. Perhaps a meteoric ritual object?
Gabrielle Benele
The hue seems too dark for meteoric glass. This metallic banding is curious too. It's almost like they were trying to keep something contained in the sphere. Seers might have used it as a scrying stone. It follows, given the Magrus connection. Curious.

ON-icon-quest-Torn Habit.png Name Hecatomb Tassets Value N/A
Ugron gro-Thumog
This is a strange, hybrid design. Normally an encompassing piece like this would strap under the ribcage to protect the abdomen and extend down past the legs. This does neither, offering coverage to the kidneys, hips, pelvis, and little else.
Ugron gro-Thumog
There are a series of holes spanning the entire circumference of the waist, presumably for fastening. It's excessive in my opinion. This many points of contact wouldn't improve stability much and be more prone to buckling. I can't see another function.
Amalien
Maybe it was stitched in place? They seem about the right span for stringing a leather cord through. What about bolts or screws? We are only seeing a small piece of a bigger picture. I'm sure it'll all make sense when put together!
