Research: Forgotten Artifacts
« on: December 10, 2019, 06:52:32 pm »
Shi Lei enters the library, and gives a cordial nod to the Archivist, but seeks his own council.

He is looking for information on very old and perhaps 'lost' artifacts, taking notes of anything divine in nature and very specifically anything to do with Shar.

It quickly becomes apparent that this topic is too broad as the books pile up about you. You might need to narrow down your search.

Coming back rested with a new direction, he sets about looking for any mention of a myth about a piece of Selune falling to Toril during a battle with Shar, what that could actually be, and where it might have ended up throughout history until the present.

On a second but related note, he goes about trying to track down information about something that was stolen from the Skettus Vaults by Menner, a shadowy orb of some kind perhaps.

Regarding the myth of the godly essence, no mention of it ever says where it fell or even if it fell to Toril. Some speculate that perhaps the essence is the moon it's self or the tears that follow behind it, others mention the morning star as being the pice still others say that it ended up in, or becoming the Positive Plane or being lost somewhere in the astral plane.

While not finding much on the shadowy orb the Librarian asks if you mean The Orb of Shadows? He goes on to say that the Orb never actually made it to the vault. It was stolen from a caravan heading to the Skettus estate while defenders were distracted by an attack on the town of Hill Top. Not much is known about the orb, perhaps those of House Skettus would know more.
