ON-icon-quest-Letter 02.png Name Ancestral Orc: Daggers Value 13
Ugron gro-Thumog
This book looks like it went through the jaws of a Sabre cat and then came out the other end. A few of the words were hard to make out, but with a little effort you can parse it out.

ON-icon-furniture-Rivenspire Map 02.png Name Antique Map of Rivenspire Value N/A
Reginus Buca
An annotated draft of the political map of the kingdom of Rivenspire once belonging to the royal cartographer of Shornhelm. The lines have been redrawn numerous times in varying colors of ink. It seems the nobility was quite divided on the matter.
Gabrielle Benele
If they were anything like their descendants, then I'd say that's an understatement. The three major houses are constantly vying for control. It's a miracle that the kingdom isn't in a constant state of civil war, especially without a king on the throne.
Reginus Buca
The stewardship of these assorted baronies and counties was at the pleasure of the king. Holdings of the nobility would have shifted constantly as individuals gained or fell out of favor. These drafts may be as close to final as was possible.

ON-icon-stolen-Seal.png Name House Tamrith Official Seal Value 250
Gabrielle Benele
It's remarkable how little the Tamrith house seal has changed over the course of centuries. It makes this hard to date, but it's real and it's old. Impressive, since these were so widely counterfeited during King Ranser's war to falsify correspondence.
Verita Numida
The telltale mark of authenticity here is the inscription. It's written in Aldmeris, signifying pride in their Elven heritage. Breton nobility ceased the practice around the time that High Rock joined the Alessian Empire.
Amalien
The inscription appears to be: "By Arkay's grace we live and die, but there is no end to the Tamrith line." I'd say they were tempting fate with that credo, but they've made good on their work thus far.

ON-icon-quest-Letter 02.png Name Ancestral Orc: Shoulders Value 13
Ugron gro-Thumog
This book looks ... flat. The text is still legible, but it looks like a mammoth stepped on it. The binding is crushed, the pages thinned, and the cover is almost comically stretched out.

ON-icon-stolen-Coins.png Name Northpoint Founding Coin Value 1,000
Reginus Buca
Now these are quite hard to come by. Yric Flowdys had these gold coins specially minted to commemorate the completion of Northpoint's construction in c.1E 900. Only a few hundred were stamped and most remain in private collections.
Verita Numida
Incorrect. Those figures were a deliberate attempt by unscrupulous archeologists [sic] to inflate their value. My own research suggests Flowdys circulated these coins through all Northpoint's trade to spread word of his new trade port.
Gabrielle Benele
The archeologist [sic] weren't the only ones. These coins are a little on the light side. The difference in gold weight wouldn't have been noticeable without finer instruments that were commonly employed by traders in the middle First Era.

ON-icon-furniture-Riven King's Throne.png Name Riven King's Throne Value N/A
Gabrielle Benele
No great mystery who this belonged to. Every Breton knows those motifs! It's a throne of House Spenard. Good riddance to poor sovereigns! Rivenspire's suffered more than its fair share of despots, but the Spenards put the others to shame.
Verita Numida
Yes, prior to its dissolution by House Dorell, House Spenard's territory was in a perpetual state of famine. Frestrien Spenard I to Frestrien Spenard VI maintained an era of misrule that lasted for one-hundred eighty-six years.
Amalien
That's because all six rulers were the same person! I've found a wealth of documents that describe the rulers' appearance and manner as identical. "The line of Frestrien bore stern features that appeared wrought from pale marble...." He was a vampire!

ON-icon-stolen-Painting.png Name Spire of Erokii Frieze Value 5,000
Amalien
It's so rare to find Ayleid architectural art still intact! The Alessian order took a special glee in wiping out Elven culture. I think the only reason there's any left at all was because they were more interested in wiping out the Elves themselves. This beautiful relief pictures the legendary Spire of Erokii while it stood. Now the inglorious ruins are simple [sic] known as Doomcrag. One day I'll convince someone to carry me to the summit to study the spire's remains.

ON-icon-furniture-Remnant of the False Tower.png Name Remnant of the False Tower Value N/A
Verita Numida
You found this in Rivenspire? Hardly a surprise there. That region attracts unsettling relics like a sweet roll attracts children. The crystal clearly has Ayleid origins, but I've never seen a Varla or Welkynd stone with such an angry hue.
Ugron gro-Thumog
I met a band of explorers in Shornhelm a few years back. They swore up and down that a red crystal lies at the heart of the Doomcrag. I did some digging in Erokii afterward. Found a broken fresco depicting the creation of a crystal, but nothing else.
Gabrielle Benele
It's definitely Ayleid-make, but I doubt they meant for it to look like this. Something corrupted its Aetherial resonance. This band ... it almost feels diagnostic in design. Perhaps this was their attempt to understand the red crystal. To fix it even?

ON-icon-fragment-Cartographer's Belt.png Name Thirsting Girdle Value N/A
Reginus Buca
At first blush, there was nothing exceptional about this plain, leather belt, but its appearance is deceiving. There are hollow channels beneath the surface that I can only describe as veiny and the inside of the loop is studded with teeth!
Amalien
I pricked my finger on one of those pointy teeth. It felt like something was sucking at the wound as I pulled away! If I was going to make a bloodsucking belt, why would I put the teeth on the inside of the band? Maybe this was an instrument of torture?
Gabrielle Benele
So, it definitely drinks blood. You can feel it pulse when doing so, and this seems to empower its enchantments. Unless someone volunteers to try it on, that's as much as I can discern. If I wanted a garment to drain the life out of me, I'd buy a corset.
