ON-icon-furniture-Murkmire Map.png Name Antique Map of Murkmire Value N/A
Verita Numida
Difficult to say with certainty since its shores change so often, but I'm fairly confident this map depicts southern Black Marsh. Specifically the Murkmire region.
Ugron gro-Thumog
You're right, Verita. And you certainly weren't exaggerating when you spoke about the shores and terrain shifting. Just look where the cartographer placed Blackrose Prison and Lilmoth.
Reginus Buca
Black Marsh is virtually impossible to map effectively. Just ask any Imperial cartographer who's tried it. Very few make it back out of that gods-forsaken place alive, and those that do are always disappointed.

ON-icon-stolen-Contraption.png Name Naga Skull-Trap Value 250
Ugron gro-Thumog
Some kind of trap. Difficult to say if it's for animals or people. Knowing Nagas, it's the latter. Looks like they repurposed a crocodile's skull so it latches onto the torso of any who trigger it. Look at the size of it. Never seen a crocodile that size.
Verita Numida
A member of an extinct species, if memory serves. Helstrom crocodiles died out during the Second Empire's march on Black Marsh and the subsequent environmental disaster called the "Great Burn" in 1E 2828. Good riddance. Today's crocodiles are big enough!
Amalien
Pretty remarkable that it's lasted this long! I believe it's the work of the Dead-Water Tribe. No tribe in Black Marsh comes close when it comes to carcass dressing and taxidermy.

ON-icon-quest-Murkmire Tablet.png Name Stone-Chief's Xul-Vaat Value 1,000
Reginus Buca
What a beautiful stone-carving! Argonians don't often dwell on death, but they do like to commemorate it with one of these grave stakes (or xul-vaat's in the lizards' native tongue). When an Argonian dies, their kin plant this stake as a memorial.
Ugron gro-Thumog
Try again, Reginus. Argonians use their grave stakes to pin down their dead so they don't rise again as bog blights. But that's not all that noteworthy. What is interesting is the material. Argonians rarely work in stone. This xul-vaat is clearly ancient.
Verita Numida
Yes, Argonians abandoned stonework milleniae ago, making this stake a true oddity. Apparently, ancient and modern Argonians exercised similar burial traditions. It's really too bad that the Argonians will react to this insight with a collective shrug.

ON-icon-furniture-Nisswo's Soul Tender.png Name Nisswo's Soul Tender Value N/A
Reginus Buca
I find Argonian relics endlessly fascinating—particularly those from their "stone nest" period. This appears to be some sort of basin. Best not to assume, where Argonians are involved, but it stands to reason they'd use this for Hist sap rituals.
Ugron gro-Thumog
Look again. I've seen enough executioners' axes to know old blood when I see it. The Argonians worship Sithis. They used to have a whole school of priests dedicated to the dark. Nisswos they were called. This looks like their handiwork.
Gabrielle Benele
I assume you haven't visited Black Marsh recently. The Nothing-Speaker tradition is still very much alive in the southern and central regions of the province. I've even met one. He seemed cheerful enough ... but I wouldn't put blood rituals past him.

ON-icon-stolen-Bowl.png Name Vakka Bok Sun Bowl Value 5,000
Amalien
By Auri-El, look at this crystal bowl! Difficult, given those shimmering facets in the glass. It seems to gather up sunlight, doesn't it? I can barely look at it without squinting! Legends tell of a tribe of Argonians who could wield the power of Magnus with precious stones. The sheer radiance of this crystal makes me think those stories are true. I just can't believe they fashioned it into a bowl. Not a weapon, jewelry, or armor. A bowl. It must have contained something truly marvelous.

ON-icon-style material-Corundum.png Name Charm of the Shapeless Value N/A
Verita Numida
I'll be honest ... I don't really know what I'm looking at here. I suppose it could be a face? If you squint? Given the bizarre shape and the greenish hue of the metal, I'd say this is a relic of the Wild Hunt.
Gabrielle Benele
If I'm not mistaken, shapeless beings often appear in the hunt. According to this tome of Bosmeri history, Wood Elves transformed by the ritual sometimes take on the aspect of "great writhing tongues, unfettered by lips or teeth." Gross.
Amalien
Can you even imagine seeing a giant tongue chasing after you? It's really too bad that the Wild Hunt leaves no survivors—not even those who willingly take part. I guess we'll have to wait until the Wood Elves feel aggrieved enough to summon up another!
