Caelereth holds many amazing objects
called artifacts. Artifacts are special in some way that sets them apart from
other items that may normally be found in
Caelereth. Some artifacts are one-of-a-kind objects, others may have unique
magical properties, and almost all of them are
quite ancient. These artifacts may be highly prized and are sought after for
power or prestige while others are lost to the world or are merely legend. There
are various categories of artifacts such as books and tomes, orbs and seer
devices, clothing and jewelry, and other miscellaneous artifacts. Artifacts
known to Caelereth at this time are as
The Book of Knowledge, the
Great Book ("Garnesh-Rhun"), or Dead Lord's Book, definitely is
among the most intriguing artifacts
known to Santharian scholars.
Whether it really ever existed is heavily debated of course
like at most very powerful artifacts, but this Book espeically always seems to
have been the reason for many curious people to start adventuring in the most
dangerous places possible in order to retrieve it from forsaken ruins or the
claws of a monster. - What is so special about this Book is that the Book of
Knowledge obviously was created with and
still is maintained by extremely

knows, but has forgotten, what he/she will once know or
might want to know. However, as with most
artifacts of such great power, there is a price.
OF ALL FEARS")
The Daedhir is one of the
most mysterious and weird books in Nybelmarian
history, written by the exiled and very secretive
Venlaken mages. More than a
century before the Year of Darkness an internal conflict broke the Mage Guild
of the Nybelmarian nation of
Anis-Anpagan in two main branches.
One of these branches started to focus their researches towards modifying the
essence of things and towards the possibility of transgression for such
essences. Eventually they ended up by searching a means to preserve one's
spirit even after the body is dead. After the
Anpagan Republican Wars these mages
were all exiled in the western swamplands, which are now named the
"Venlaken Enclave". The "Daedhir"
or the "Book of All Fears" is their most treasured writing, actually the very
thing which, they claim, stands at the foundation of their beliefs. However,
the book's exact purpose still remains to a large extent absolutely unknown and
a topic for speculation...
The book is said to instigate a plethora of strange magical abilities,
unexplainable even by scholars, though many theories have been proposed.
The most famous of these is the ability for the owner to bestow elongated
life, the attribute from which the artifact derives its name, upon those
he wishes. Though the tome's pages are filled with many ancient
incantations that are nearly undecipherable and are believed to predate
the catastrophic war of the chosen, providing a promising glimpse at the
power of the past.
It is said that this mythical artifact held immense power. It was said to
have the ability to allow an individual to view anywhere in the world that
they could mentally envision. They would then be able to cast any
magical spell without the worry of any
repercussions against oneself. Eventually, it was decided that the powers
of the Chán'vai were too great and from that point on the Orb of Sight was
A small cut emerald globe the size of a child's fist. It allows those of

The Orb of Bluestride is the only remaining
token of the third-greatest Archmage in Ximaxian
history: Xarl Bluestride. The Orb,
once activated by contact with one of the
Eleven Staffs, summons some
fraction of Bluestride's mind to
offer his wisdom and advice on whatever is troubling the Orb's user.
OF THE CITY
The stone is one of the most impressive jewels in all of
Caelereth. The Soul of the City has
the shape of an orb and its surface is smooth and the black colour is very
deep. Some people insist that they can see things moving inside the orb,
much like the
Orb of Bluestride.
hThe Sungems are three ancient jewels that trace their origins back to the
creation of Caelereth. They were believed
to be a gift from the Sun God Foiros to
Urtengor, God of the Forge. Their light
and power allow plants to grow even in the darkest of places. The term "gems"
might mislead people into thinking these artifacts are small, but indeed, they
are not. They are shaped like orbs with a diameter of nearly 1 ½ palmspans.

The amulet gives solice and peace to those who have lost someone. It also can
grant knowledge from the dead. It is said to allow free communication between
the bearer and the dead. This amulet creates a doorway between the astral plane
and the bearer's mind, allowing one of the dead to communicate with the bearer,
in the bearer's mind.
The Tear of Blood appears to be a simple necklace and consists of a golden
chain and a tear shaped ruby. The Tear of Blood is said to be able to
track anyone that still lives in this world, but the necklace must first
come into contact with their blood.
A robe that when put it around your shoulders enables the wearer to levitate or

OF THE HEAVENS,
One of the most sought after instruments in
all of musical history, is the fabled Horn of the Heavens. Said to have been
crafted by the gods themselves, this heavenly horn supposedly has a magical
sound that is matched by no other. Lost entirely, all that lingers of this horn
are strands of legend passed down through myth. Recently uncovered scriptures
and glyphs however, tell a different tale. They state that the Horn of the
Heavens is more fact than fiction and still remains intact, buried deep beneath
Sarvonian sands. This theory has come under fierce debate, particularly amongst
the Masterbards of Bardavos.
