ON-icon-furniture-Southern Elsweyr Map 02.png Name Antique Map of Southern Elsweyr Value N/A
Reginus Buca
Ah, the wonders of Pellitine committed to history in genuine Elsweyr ink! Just glorious!
Gabrielle Benele
Things certainly looked cleaner when this cartographer set paint to parchment. Look at these brush strokes. I doubt even Archmagister Vanus Galerion could match this Khajiit's artistry with the brush and pen.
Verita Numida
I couldn't agree more. The world could use a return to classical penmanship and painting. Alas, I doubt we'll find much high culture in Southern Elsweyr nowadays.

ON-icon-quest-Ballista Bolts.png Name Spiked Scalebreaker Bolt Value 250
Amalien
What a unique and fascinating weapon! It's spear-like in shape, but massive in size. Only a giant could properly wield such a tool! A Pahmar-Raht, maybe? No, it's still too big.
Ugron gro-Thumog
That's because it's not a traditional weapon. The spiked shaft here is meant to penetrate heavy scale and not let go, but only if loosed at great velocity. From a ballista or similar weapon, I wager.
Reginus Buca
I defer to Ugron on matters military, of course. It's the cutural [sic] motifs I find most interesting! The Dragonguard were the children of two worlds: Imperial and Akaviri. This bolt reflects those merging aesthetics.

ON-icon-misc-Broken Shield.png Name Meteoric-Iron Pavise Value 1,000
Gabrielle Benele
Well, this shield is certainly ... tall. Lugging this around would have taken a considerable amount of effort. But the thickness makes it almost impenetrable. And what is this ironwork? It's unlike any I've seen.
Verita Numida
Oh, sweet Gabrielle, that's because the material is extremely rare. Meteoric-Iron was used to construct this monstrosity of war. The question is why? Overcompensation at its finest. Perhaps its gaudy nature is meant to be ornamental.
Ugron gro-Thumog
No soldier would strap this to their arm like a tower shield. More likely, they planted it in the ground like a pavise. Meteoric-Iron is resistant most elements, so if you wanted to avoid getting burnt to a crisp fighting Dragons, this would help.

ON-icon-stolen-Marbles.png Name Ancient Dragonguard Lure Value 5,000
Amalien
By Syrabane's ring, this is magnificent! I never thought an iron sphere could look so beautiful. There's something about it that's just so … intriguing. I can almost hear it whispering to me. Even now, my hands tremble with the thought of letting go! These symbols here—unlike any I've seen. Akaviri? Or even Dovah? No. that's not possible. Seems the charming magic imbued into this iron is still quite potent. Meant to lure a beast to its doom, no doubt! Someone take this thing away from me!

ON-icon-furniture-Moons-Blessed Ceremonial Pool.png Name Moons-Blessed Ceremonial Pool Value N/A
Reginus Buca
A brilliant stone basin of some variety, eh? Obviously, this served as some devotional object to the Khajiiti moon-gods, Jone and Jode. The smaller pools depict various lunar phases. Difficult to say what Khajiit actually used it for, though.
Verita Numida
Not just any lunar phases. These seventeen arrangements correspond to the seventeen distinct furstocks of the Khajiit. The question is, what significance would a pool of water have? Perhaps new Khajiit were anointed in sacred water from Moonlit Cove?
Gabrielle Benele
Possibly. It doesn't explain the larger pools, though. Maybe the Twilight Cantors played a role? Priestesses of that order often sing at religious ceremonies and enjoy a rich bathing culture. I can definitely see one of them anointing ja'khajiit in this.

ON-icon-furniture-Shrine of Boethra.png Name Shrine of Boethra Value N/A
Ugron gro-Thumog
Never seen anything like this, and I've spent many cold nights in Khajiiti tombs. The Riddle'Thar cult swept a lot of Khajiiti myths under the rug during the Elsweyr reunification. You think this is one of the spirits they scrubbed from the pantheon?
Amalien
Undoubtedly! Note the sword and the figure's morphology. You can correct me if I'm wrong here, but this doesn't match any Khajiiti furstocks I'm aware of. Ohmes-raht come close, but the facial features are completely different. I think it's Boethra!
Gabrielle Benele
Boethra--the Khajiiti variant of Daedric Prince, Boethiah? The presence of a katana, the cloak, and the imperious expression all fit. Ancient Khajiit honored her as a patron of warriors and rebellious exiles. That feline companion's a puzzler, though!
