ON-icon-furniture-Vvardenfell Map 02.png Name Antique Map of Vvardenfell Value N/A
Reginus Buca
Vvardenfell's unique, volcanic geography make Vvardenfell one of the most difficult places in Tamriel to map. The island's silhouette, however, is unmistakable.
Verita Numida
Ha! Tribunal priests are the true impediments to cartography in the region. I can scarcely believe how often the island is locked away, reopened, and so on. Travel to the island is quite simple nowadays, but you'll find many doors closed to outsiders.
Amalien
As you well know, few maps are original works. I'd wager this is a composite of several different maps -- perhaps even Dwemer ones!

ON-icon-quest-Dwarven Part 04.png Name Refitted Dwarven Rod Value 250
Reginus Buca
This definitely seems Dwemeric in origin, but it's not something I recognize. As you all know, discerning the function of Dwarven machines is thirsty work. It looks like someone repurposed it, though. Some ancient scavenger, perhaps.
Amalien
I think this used to be a Dwarven rod of some kind; a device used to direct animunculi, or inscribe their strange maths on hard surfaces. These modifications don't appear to incorporate any of the devices complex machinery, though.
Ugron gro-Thumog
Chimer fell into a real rut in the latter days of the Merethic. You don't often see Chimer-modified tools like this, but my best guess is that some opportunistic herder repurposed the rod's shaft as a simple nix-prod. Probably blasphemous, but effective.

ON-icon-stolen-Trinkets.png Name Massive Ash-herder Grapnel Value 1,000
Ugron gro-Thumog
Not really sure what I'm looking at here. Seems like some kind of rough-forged grappling hook, but judging by the size, it could probably bear a mammoth's weight.
Amalien
Crabs, Ugron! Chimer used these to guide the movements of truly massive creatures. Sure, places like Ald'ruhn make it seem like Ashlanders simply killed giant crabs like Skar, but who's to say these creatures weren't used for transportation as well?
Verita Numida
Dark Elves do have a long (and disturbing) tradition of bizarre animal husbandry. My question would be, where's the evidence of similar creatures? Ald'ruhn proves the crabs' remains last a long time. I've never seen any remains that approach that size.

ON-icon-food-Dusk Beetle.png Name Bleeding Beetle Door Lock Value 5,000
Reginus Buca
Tribunal priests and religious enforcers make it very difficult to learn much about the mysterious Sixth House. From what little information we can find, this noble house played a major role in the War of the First Council between the Chimer and the Dwarves. Always a secretive group, House Dagoth deployed these strange, beetle-shaped locks on their doors to taste the blood of those who sought entry--a valuable precaution in wartime, and consistent with the Dark Elves' inherent wariness.

ON-icon-furniture-Sixth House Ritual Table.png Name Sixth House Ritual Table Value N/A
Verita Numida
It's been quite some time since I've seen such a well-preserved Chimer table. The volcanic rock seems consistent with the pre-Tribunal aesthetic. The sigil in the center is particularly noteworthy. Could this really have belonged to the Sixth House?
Reginus Buca
Yes, this is definitely First Council-era craftsmanship. Note the script surrounding the seal. Dagoth written in Daedric runes. The other Houses went to great lengths to scrub House Dagoth's legacy from the history books. This is quite a discovery!
Ugron gro-Thumog
Really makes you wonder--what threat did Dagoth pose to the Tribunal? I try to avoid Dark Elf politics, personally, but to wipe all mention of the Sixth House from the record seems excessive to the point of suspicious.

ON-icon-furniture-St. Nerevar, Moon-and-Star.png Name St. Nerevar, Moon-and-Star Value N/A
Verita Numida
A bust of Saint Nerevar. A worthy discovery, to be sure. You don't often find such realistic depictions of Dunmer religious figures. The sculptor may have spent some time in the Imperial City. I see similarities to Bruma School works. 1E 2800's perhaps?
Ugron gro-Thumog
The shapes featured in his panoply definitely match some of the pieces in the Gwylim First Council collection. Bit more conservative than I'd expect, though. I always had the sense that Chimer armor favored form over function. More exposed skin, etc.
Amalien
Speaking of skin, I wish this bust included color! Dark Elf portraiture leans toward monochromatic, abstract compositions. I'm desperate to know if they conceptualize Nerevar with gold or ashen skin. I bet it's gray. Dark Elves are master revisionists.
