This is a list of all of the Antiquities that are found in the Stormhaven.

ON-icon-quest-Letter 02.png Name Ancestral Orc: Boots Value 13
Ugron gro-Thumog
This book smells like some Orc stuffed it in his boot and kept it there for the last few centuries. Still, a good read.

ON-icon-furniture-Stormhaven Map 02.png Name Antique Map of Stormhaven Value N/A
Ugron gro-Thumog
This is an Orcish map. Hard to believe it's real. Hardly anything from the time of first Orsinium survived the war that broke it. This map outlines the territory claimed around the Bjoulsae River. There's a settlement marked: Golkarr.
Gabrielle Benele
Wasn't that the name of the Orc king from the thirty-year siege? I'd read that he invaded Stormhaven and blockaded Wayrest's trade lanes. There wasn't any mention of an Orc settlement. Was Golkarr an early casualty of the war?
Ugron gro-Thumog
It may never have been built. I doubt a treacherous ruler like Jolie would have tolerated Orcs for neighbors even if Golkarr was established peacefully. The justification for the razing of Orsinium was likely just the first of Jolie's many betrayals.

ON-icon-stolen-Case.png Name Secession Stamp Block Value 250
Ugron gro-Thumog
Unfinished wood block, stained black with ink. Circa 2300 of the First Era. Took a rubbing of the carved face. It is a diatribe calling citizens of Wayrest to demand secession from the Alessian Empire, citing prejudice against Elven heritage.
Verita Numida
An expert, if dry, assessment, Ugron. This sort of vague, incendiary language smacks of propaganda meant to weaponize the populace for private interest. It strains credulity that Wayrest endured a thousand years of oppression before revolting.
Ugron gro-Thumog
Then you might find Lost Orsinium and The Pig Children enlightening. You'd be surprised the number of indignities people are willing to suffer. The emphasis on increasing Imperial tithes does support your assertion that money was behind this movement.

ON-icon-quest-Letter 02.png Name Ancestral Orc: Maces Value 13
Ugron gro-Thumog
Maces are an Orc favorite, always have been. The ones addressed in this book seem particularly brutal. Maces with pointed heads are an entirely different breed of weapon.

ON-icon-stolen-Figurine.png Name Nedic Hex Totem Value 1,000
Verita Numidia
This wooden figure appears to be an Orc, but its features are greatly exaggerated to appear menacing. Based on the deliberate defacement and hostile appearance, I believe the Nedes did not have a friendly relationship with local Orc clans.
Ugron gro-Thumog
It depends on the clan. There's ample evidence of harmony between Nedes and Orcs in Craglorn. But you're right—clans in Stormhaven tended to take a more offensive posture against non-Orc neighbors and each other. We hadn't learned the value of unity yet.
Gabrielle Benele
I believe the metal objects protruding from this effigy was [sic] stabbed into the figure with ritual intent, for cursing, it you will, but I've found no evidence of spellcraft. It might have been used in prayers to Daedra though, or simply cathartic.

ON-icon-stolen-Female Portrait.png Name Direnni Palatial Art Value 5,000
Amalien
A palatial portrait of the Direnni royal family! This likely would have hung in the halls of the Adamantine tower at the heights of their rule. I'd love to know more of who's depicted here, but there's a lack of distinguishing features. In fact, the family resemblance borders on simulacra. It's hard to believe a royal artist would be so lazy. Though, despite mingling with Nedes, only pureblooded Direnni rose to power. That would mean ... ew, no. Maybe they really did reproduce though sorcery.

ON-icon-style material-Dwemer Scrap.png Name Dwarven Breastguard Value N/A
Gabrielle Benele
This plate clearly connects to a spinal and neck structure that holds inner workings of a vamidium's shoulder-machinery. It lacks some sort of stone, though. Perhaps a resonator sockets in there somehow.

  • "Curious Dwemer Rubble" near the Orgnum's Scales clothier station in the Earth Forge, Pressure Room III
ON-icon-furniture-Noble Knight's Rest.png Name Noble Knight's Rest Value N/A
Gabrielle Benele
Ah, a relic from the homeland! It's clearly a sarcophagus. The question is, who's buried inside? Judging by the state of the stone, I'd say late first Era. A servant of one of the pretender-kings that took power after the Alessian secession, perhaps?
Reginus Buca
Undoubtedly. The Alessian collapse struck High Rock harder than most, given the Bretons' natural stubbornness and distaste for a unified governing structure. Warring fiefs sprung up all over the peninsula in the centuries that followed.
Gabrielle Benele
We Bretons are a stubborn lot, it's true. I did some digging, and it looks like those seals on the side derive from House Moorcroft heraldry. This knight might have died in the Gavaudon Troubles, just before the flight from Wayrest. Fascinating!

ON-icon-furniture-Beacon of Tower Zero.png Name Beacon of Tower Zero Value N/A
Gabrielle Benele
What’s this? The White-Gold Tower rendered in miniature? Odd that it doesn't include the city itself. Doubly odd that it's giving off such a strong magical aura. What function did this serve? And what's this light radiating from the top?
Verita Numida
This isn't the White-Gold Tower. It's the Direnni Tower. Surely you can recognize the differences between the two? The light is a puzzle, though. Judging by the weight, this stone might house a metal core, just like the genuine article.
Amalien
Well, it's not a simple lamp to read by, I can tell you that! It seems like a beacon of some kind—something to be seen at a great distance. The Direnni might have used it as a geographic marker to gauge the distance of objects from the Adamantine Tower!

ON-icon-stolen-Vase.png Name Malacath's Brutal Ritual Oil Value N/A
Ugron gro-Thumog
This ritual urn bears the mark of the Brutal Breed. An Orc named Borug gro-Bashnarz founded the cult and served as its head supplicant. Legends attribute him as the one who received the Brutal Bands from Malacath himself. Hard to believe, even for an Orc.
Gabrielle Benele
Right. I remember that story. From the Orsinimum Codex. Malacath appeared before him and gifted him with a ring for every member of the cult--after they sacrificed an entire village of Bretons to the Ashpit. Ghastly.
Reginus Buca
And you're certain this urn contains the ritual oil used to anoint the Brutal Bands? It is believed that every cultist carried the oil to apply to their rings as a sort of prayer or request for perseverance in the face of endless adversity.
