Bloodstone Amulet
Amulets are usually magical devices that are commonly worn around the 
neck, suspended from a chain.  The type of chain that comes with an 
amulet generally increases the item's aesthetic value, not its magical 
properties.  Only one amulet can be dangled from the neck at a time.

Harper Amulet
All of the Harpers that you have met in this area were wearing one of 
these amulets.  Perhaps it somehow identifies one as being a Harper.  
Could there be a section of this building that can only be accessed by 
Harpers?

the words:  "My love, I implore you to keep this pendant near you 
forever, even unto death and beyond."

Bastard sword +1, +3 vs. Shapeshifters:  'Kondar'
At first glance, this sword appears much like any other.  In the 
presence of any shapeshifting creature however, the blade becomes warm 
as its power stirs.  Its namesake was the original owner of the weapon, 
and his tale, though mostly long forgotten, was wrought with treachery 
and deceit.  Rumors persist that he paid a fearsome price for this 
blade, but with it he revealed the true identities of those that sought 
to betray him.  Their names and crimes however, are long since lost to 
history.

Jhor The Bleeder +2
Jhor the Bleeder, Bastard Sword +2
This blade belonged to Ho Mang, a traveler from Kara-Tur who accepted 
dubious service at court throughout Faerun.  Skilled in "persuasion", he 
would use this sword to perform the "Death Of A Thousand Cuts", an 
ancient ritual from his homeland involving a lengthy series of small, 
painful incisions.  The properties of the blade prevent blood from 
clotting, and the victim slowly bleeds to death.  The sword was stolen, 
and its whereabouts have been a mystery until now.:

This was the axe of Illgarth, a Frost Giant that terrorized northern 
communities long ago.  It is not known where he acquired the weapon, but 
he took a perverse pleasure in unleashing it upon small folk, 
particularly halflings.  Ice and acid maimed those not killed, and the 
giant would laugh coldly if he recognized his handiwork from a previous 
visit.  Ultimately a group did manage to kill him, and at the request of 
his victims Frostreaver was buried with him.

worn by Tapid Gornoak.  He was still an active warrior at the age of 
seventy-five but the weight of his armor was getting harder and harder 
to bear.  A companion, the sorceress Nadalarin, created these bracers 
for him.  She also cast a permanent illusion over him so that his men 
would think he still wore his heavy chain.  Tapid died twenty years 
later, his hands wrapped around the neck of an orc chief when old age 
took him.

opened to the ocean.  Within one cave, Ivan discovered what he thought 
was a ruined cloak, all torn and stained.  He tossed it into the fire he

Do'Urden undoubtedly possesses powerful abilities.  However, since this 
cloak is missing the enchanted clasp which keeps it in place it is 
virtually useless.

This vicious club was created hundreds of years ago, reportedly by a 
shaman on a quest for revenge.  His family had fallen to undead, and so 
personal was his rage that he amputated his own leg, using the femur for

the sheer force of his hatred would have served on its own.

Flail of Ages +3
This flail has been in the care of Lord Arnise for some time, a relic of 
his adventuring youth.  It has been kept disassembled, the individual 
pieces stored in separate locations, and only used in the direst of 
emergencies.  Lord Arnise was likely concerned about the powerful magic 
that the weapon radiated when compiled, and rightfully so.  A trail of 
destruction has followed it through history, leading straight back to 
the original owners.  The flail was the creation of the warlike 
Rakshasa, a race of vengeful spirits that crave human meat, and used an 
adaptable weapon that could suit any battle.  During a particularly 
violent hunt the flail was lost, only to be returned when they used 
their affinity for magic to locate its powerful aura.  They discovered 
that the weapon had found its way into the hands of a great human 
warrior, and the battle that followed was truly splendid.  They have 
since used the item as bait countless times, 'losing' it again and 
again.  Powerful items gravitate towards powerful people, and powerful 
people yield the most glorious battles.

Gems
----------
Andar Gem
Andar is hard and durable, yielding translucent gems ("Andars") that 
flash green-red or brown-red when properly faceted.

Beljuril
Normally a deep, pleasant seawater green, beljurils periodically blaze 
with a glittering, winking, flashing light.  Although this particular 
stone has a slightly different hue, perhaps a new strain, rarely if ever 
seen before.  It looks incredibly valuable.

Black Opal
Black Opal has a greenish hue with black mottling and gold flecks.  
Usually found in ancient hot springs, the gem is tumbled smooth and cut 
cabochon.  The phrase in the north "Black as an opal" is used as a 
subtle form of praise for kind-hearted rogues and the like.

Chrysoberyl Gem
Chrysoberyl is a hard, transparent, green gem which is usually facet-
cut.  It is said that Chrysoberyl has ties to the outer planes and hence 
its use with battling demonic possession and the undead.

Emerald
An Emerald is a brilliant green beryl, cleaved along straight box like 
lines, with rectangular cutting in the finished gem.  Emeralds are often 
connected with health, and so are used ornamentally for such a purpose.

Fire Agate Gem
Fire Agate is the name given to chalcedony which contains thin lines of 
iridescent goethite.  When properly cut, the iridescence displays red, 
brown, gold, and green hues, and the finest specimens are partly 
translucent.

Horn Coral Gem
Horn Coral, which is also called night coral, is a deep black coral, 
similar to angel's skin save for its solid color.  It is incredibly 
difficult to work with, and is used in jewelry as a polished twig or 
branch of material, or is cut cabochon.

Iol Gem
Iol is actually short for Iolite (cordierite), although a common 
nickname is "violet stone" even though its overall hue is usually blue.  
Iols are usually cut into faceted gems to best display the stone's color 
changes as it is viewed from different directions.  Small, cut iols can 
be clear, but larger specimens usually contain silky inclusions of 
another substance such as hemitite crystals, which give the same rich 
golden flash of color in sunstones.

Jasper Gem
Jasper is an opaque quartz found in reds, browns, and blacks.  Very rare 
specimens are blue or have bands of blue against the other colours.  
Jasper can be crushed and used in making potions and magical devices 
which protect against poison.

King's Tears
King's Tears are very rare and found only in the Realms where they are 
sometimes called frozen tears.  Clear, teardrop-shaped, smooth surfaced, 
and totally unbreakable so far by any means.  These stones are said to 
be the crystallized tears of long-dead necromancer kings.  In each gem 
can be seen that which the weeping king loved long ago.  Their true 
nature is unknown but suffice it to say that sages prize these gems 
above all others.

Lynx Eye Gem
Lynx Eye is a specific type of labradorite (a feldspar gemstone).  
Labradorite as a class of stones is pale to dark gray and has patches of 
colored reflections.  This "flash" is most commonly blue but can be of 
all shades.  "Green flash" labradorite is called lynx eye in the Realms.

Moonbar Gem
Moonbar is a pearly white, opaque gemstone, usually pale blue with green 
and gold mottling.  Related in type to fire and black opal, but is only 
slightly more common.

Pearl
Pearls consist of layers of aragonite agonizingly formed around a bit of 
grit or other irritant inside oysters and other mollusks.  The resulting 
pearl has a rich, deep luster.  Most of the pearls in the realms are 
white, however there are varieties that are much more rare such as 
rainbow and black.

Rogue Stone
A small, shifting, rainbow coloured, irridecent gemstone.  The fluid 
shades of colour appear almost liquid under normal sunlight, it is truly 
a beautiful sight to behold.  Rogue stones are extremely rare and are 
used for the gemjump spell, hence one of the most sought after gems in 
the Realms.

Shandon Gem
Shandon is another name for natrolite in the Realms; its slender, 
colorless crystals yield tiny faceted gems used often in veils and robes 
in order to capture the beading effect of water glistening upon the 
material.

Skydrop Gem
Skydrop is the common name given to clear or lightly colored tektite 
material; fragments of glass of celestial (meteoric) origin, found in 
the vast shifting sands of Anauroch and other deserts.

Sphene Gem
Sphene is a soft, brittle gemstone (and, like scapra, easily worked by 
unskilled cutters) of various yellow to green shades, the most prized of 
these being a fine emerald green.

Star Diopside Gem
Star Diopside is the most prized form of a hard, durable gemstone that 
is rarely found in attractive colours.  It is usually too dark for 
beauty, however mountain and streambed-pebble crystals of a pale green 
hue make attractive stones such as diopside.  When a gem is found that 
is darker green it can be cut in such as fashion so to produce four- to 
six-rayed stars.

Star Sapphire
Star Sapphire is a precious variation of the sapphire, however is more 
translucent, with a white star highlighted in its center.  A star 
sapphire has been known to ornament devices which protect against magic.

Sunstone Gem
Sunstone is a feldspar jem, closely related to moonstone, and more 
properly known as oligoclase.  Sunstone can be colorless or faintly 
greenish and of facet grade, but most common by far is its softer 
(cabochon) variety.  This yields gemstones that have bright red or 
orange spangles (minute crystals) suspended in a nearly colorless 
background in a parallel fashion, giving the whole a rich golden or 
redish brown color.

Tchazar Gem
Tchazar is the common name given to aragonite, a straw-yellow gemstone 
found in elongated, prism-shaped crystal form.  It is soft and fragile, 
and requires skilled cutting to yield faceted gems.

Turquoise Gem
Turquoise is an opaque aqua stone with darker mottling, and is found in 
the more arid reaches of the Realms.  Horsemen will often place a sliver 
of this stone in a horse's harness as a sign of good luck.

Water Opal
Water Opal is a colourless, clear opal with a play of colour.  It is 
rare and valuable in the Realms, where it is used in scrying devices.

Ziose Gem
Ziose is the name given by sages to a particular facet-grade variety of 
ziosite; a rare mineral that yields cut stones that flash three vivid 
hues depending on how the light catches them; purple, blue, or red or 
purple, green, and red.  Very large (fist- or foot-sized) gems are found 
and are prized for use in pendants and brooches.

Zircon Gem
Zircon is a brownish crystal found in igneous (volcanic) rocks.  Zircon 
attains its pale blue shade with heating and cutting (usually facet-
cut).

weapon enchanted at great expense and used it on many occasions, though 
of dragons only a single white has fallen to it.  The Dragonslayers met 
their match in a cantankerous ancient red who slew the entire group in 
an epic battle.  This weapon did not end up in the beast's hoard 
however, as the creature returned to its lair to recuperate and when it 
emerged the field of combat was well scavenged.

surmounted by a sharp spike, usually of quadrangular design.  The fluke 
is sometimes replaced by a hook used to dismount cavalry.  A halberd can 
be best described as a cross between a spear and an axe.
This item, like most drow equipment, is created using Adamantine, an

Mae'Var's Strongbox Key
This is a metal key of unique design.  Judging from its shape, the lock 
that it fits must be impossible to pick.

Planar Key
This thin bar vibrates softly in your hand.  It looks as if it could be 
used as either a key or a lever.

Planar Prison Cell Key
This rod is actually a key of strange design.  This key was found on the 
Warden's Body in the strange extra-planar prison the Raelis and

Sahuagin Scribe's Notes
This scroll seems to be a collection of stories about Great Wars of the 
Sahuagin.  They mention planned offensives against land dwellers all 
along the Sword Coast as well as tales of past offensives.  The Sahuagin 
appear to be a particularly warlike race, constantly planning full-
fledged invasions of the shores but rarely following through due to 
incessant infighting.  The events that you have seen in this particular 
settlement would seem to bear that out.  An interesting insight into 
Sahuagin culture.

The body shield, also known as the kite or tower shield, is a massive 
metal or wooden shield reaching nearly from the chin to the toe of the 
user.  It must be firmly fastened to the forearm and the shield hand 
must firmly grip it at all times.  Naturally, this precludes use of the 
shield hand for anything but holding the body shield in place.

Leather Armor +3:  Karajah's Life and Death
Karajah was Calimshan's champion of pit fighting for a full decade, and 
seemingly unbeatable.  His success, or so he claimed, was due to the 
mobility that his light armor afforded him.  He may well have been 
unaware of the suit's other qualities, but his peers ignored his claims 
of ignorance when enchantments were discovered.  The armor survived the 
subsequent beating, whereas Karajah did not.

sword absorbs life energy from an opponent with each successful hit, 
healing the user.  Dabbar considered it a failure of his officers if he 
returned from battle in less than perfect health, and as the rest of the

in answer.  Tempered by a wizard's skill, this blade protects the

Such is the age of this sword that its true origin has been lost to

length vary from culture to culture, and may vary within the same 
culture depending on the era.  Among the most common characteristics of 
all long swords is their length, which ranges from 35 inches to 47 
inches.  In the latter case, the blade is known to take up 40 inches of 
the total length.  Most long swords have a double-edged blade and a

Sightings have been noted as far north as Thay and as south as the 
jungles of Chult, though documentation is oddly lacking regarding 
details.  It is perhaps a result of the sword's ability to silence all 
sound within a large radius, removing the effectiveness of attacking 
mages but also preventing any discussion that might have followed.

Ardulia's Fall +1
Mace +1:  Ardulia's Fall
Ardulia the Agile was a man whose speed and skill at knife play made him 
exceptionally lethal in battle, and he repeatedly proved it by leading 
raids on settlements along the Sword Coast.  He would often challenge 
the village leader for possession of the town, and with his speed, the 
duels were always quickly decided in his favor.  Ardulia met his match 
one spring morn however, when he battled the priest Itgan, who wielded 
this mace.  Ardulia seemed to stagger under each blow, slowing his pace 
to recoup and regain his breath.  Without his speed, Ardulia was lost, 
and fell to the measured attacks of Itgan.

Abazigal's Wardstone
As long as the geas has been lifted, this wardstone, from Abazigal's 
green guardian dragon, should allow you to pass by the protective magics 
guarding the entrance to Abazigal's personal lair.

Acorns
These are the dryads' magical acorns that you obtained off of the 
duergar leader, Illyich.

Adamantine Dust
This is a pile of Adamantine dust, most likely the end result of 
exposing a Drow item to the light of day.

Air Elemental Statue
This statuette depicts the swirling form of an air elemental.

Ammo Belt
This shoulder belt is ideally suited for holding sling bullets, darts, 
arrows or bolts.

Air Scepter
This golden scepter key from the elemental room of air is inlaid with 
amber and yellow gems.  It will open the South door of the Air chamber 
and the North door of the Poison chamber.

Amuana's Bones
These are the bones of the child-prophetess Amuana.  The bones have been 
defiled and gnawed-upon by the shadow wolves.

Anarg's Cup
The golden finish of this large goblet shines brightly as you turn the 
cup over in your hands.  The cold metal bears a simple inscription, 
'Anarg the Fearless'.  The cup had been presented to him for faithful 
service to the Most Noble Order of the Radiant Heart.  It is a badge of 
honor for Anarg and losing it was a blow to his pride, only serving to 
further fuel his anger over losing his paladin status.

Ankheg Shell
The Ankheg is a burrowing insect-like creature between 10 and 20 feet 
long, found mainly in forests or choice agricultural land.  They are 
covered with plates or shells made out of a substance called chitin 
which is extremely tough and very light.  The size, weight and strength 
of the shells make them highly sought after in many situations, 
including the creation of armor.

Baalor's Claw
This demon's hand pulses with evil power.  Though harmless enough in its 
present state, there are rumors that the magic of a demon's claw can be 
unleashed by combining the appendage with another powerful item of evil.

Bag of Holding
As with other magical bags, this one appears to be a common cloth sack 
of about 2 feet by 4 feet size.  The bag of holding opens into a 
nondimensional space, and its inside is larger than its outside 
dimensions.  Regardless of what is put into this item, the bag always 
weighs a fixed amount.

hope that it will do in the stead of real ore which is nearly impossible

difference.  As to the alloy itself, it has an... interesting shape that 
looks vaguely like something though you can't put your finger on what 
that something might be.

Contact's Note
Gracen,
You have been given all the funds necessary for your duties, so you are 
to act without hesitation.  The coin we have offered to the grave keeper 
should be more than sufficient to keep him out of the crypts.  Funds 
must also be offered to keep the city exterminators from hunting the 
spiders.  If they find that blasted Pai'Na and her pets, they cannot 
help but find us as well.  See to these instructions with all haste.

of Thunderbolts, Gauntlets of Ogre Power and a Girdle of Frost Giant 
Strength... and using the power of the hammer's true name "Crom 
Faeyr"... an ultimate weapon of destruction could still be completed 
using this scroll.

certainly weren't expecting this mushy, fleshy bag of vileness.  Heavy

check to make sure it has not bounced free of your pack.

First journal of Jon Irenicus
No doubt these texts will prove to be an embarassing legacy, but I must 
order my thoughts herein, lest they spill from my accursed mind.
Spellhold is in my control.  Once recovered from my torpor I made short 
work of what defenses there were.  Coordinator Wanev conveniently 
removed himself, suffering a peculiar reaction to a spell of mine.  I 
forget what it was; perhaps something I heard in the temples of 
Suldanessellar... does it even matter now?
My condition grows worse, and what I remember of my 'home' is fleeting.  
I see images of family whose names I cannot recall, and dream of 
emotions I no longer feel vividly.  On occasion I sense nature as if she 
is my mother, as though never removed from her bosom, but such moments 
are few.  I bear the hallmarks of senility with the rage and power of a 
young elf to lament it.
Bodhi endured the curse much better than I do now, but she was more 
focused and, mor importantly, undead.  She is now thoroughly seduced by 
her vampiric condition, despite its previous failure to counteract the 
death sentence she was under.  She had embraced her mortality, excited 
by the urgency of it, but now she is confused.  Imoen's soul has 
restored her, but her motives remain transparent, even simplistic.  She 
revels in her carnal nature, even as the elf within despises the 
creature she has become.
I would pity my 'sister' if I was capable, but emotions come to me only 
in violent outbursts.  Ellesime has taken my ability to truly feel, and 
I am left with the threadbare heart of a human, or some other short-
lived vermin.  I will not suffer this much longer.
Spellhold has met my needs quite well.  They had made a practice of 
experimenting on inmates here for quite some time, though in a barbaric 
fashion.  I refined their instruments, and have finished preparing the 
necessary rituals.  I am quite through with Imoen, though she can still 
serve as bait.  I am certain ????? will make an appearance sooner or 
later.
Bodhi has delivered more assassins than I had asked for.  I disposed of 
some in advance, but it seems such a waste.  I think she has done this 
on purpose, as she has taken to releasing the extras in the maze below 
and hunting at her leisure.  I marvel at her hunger, and how she seems 
so *alive* in her undeath.  Perhaps it is the soul of Imoen.  Soon I 
shall see for myself.  ????? had best hurry.

once poor Montaron.  This would be what Xzar is looking for.

Heart of the Damned
The Heart of the Damned is an ancient dried human heart.  It takes its 
name from the legend of the man that it came from.  Legend has it that 
during a war, the cause of which has long been forgotten, a keep was 
beseiged.  The Lord of the keep knew that his walls would soon be 
overrun and, rather than have his people enslaved, he slew them all.  
When the besiegers next attacked, they found the Lord standing amongst 
the slain.
The Lord was burned at the stake and the legends say that his heart 
would not burn.  The Heart is an artifact of significant malevolent 
power and may be of some use.

apparent use.

Horn of Blasting
Horn of Blasting
While many army engineers spent their time perfecting siege equipment, 
Julius Baggar delved into magical tomes for his engineering insights.  
Therein he found ancient scriptures that detailed how to make, control, 
and wield sound waves.  The Horn of Blasting was his first and only 
attempt at taking the theoretical magical knowledge to create a 
practical new technology.  An apprentice blew through the Horn, aimed in 
the direction of Julius who insisted on a 'useful experiment'.  The

Illithid Correspondence
This note has sections written in several languages, some so alien as to 
be painful to look at.
A small section written in common reads as follows:
'The base is established and the infiltration continues.  The Hidden 
gathers followers and soon we shall dominate the minds of the entire...'
The message continues in one of the more alien scripts.  The illithids 
are up to somethings, as is typical of the race, but your being here has 
most likely disrupted their plans.

Illithid Serum
This is a heavy, metallic liquid that rolls into beads when spilled out 
onto the palm of your hand.  Whenever the flask containing the oil is 
opened a sickly, rotten-egg smell almost overwhelms you.  While 
disgusting, the odor alone serves to heighten your senses.

Inspector's Body

flows across the land like music, thou must offer the Morn Ritual that

Do not concern yourself with the thief.  If he has accomplices, they 
will show themselves soon.  As for the thief, himself... the spectral 
harpists will release him for his curse once they feel he has learned 
his lesson.  And if he doesn't, well, we can always hope he acquires a 
taste for bird seed, eh?
Cheers,

A note from Mazzy Fentan
Wallag
We travel this day to search out the wolf lair.  My own scouting of the 
region has confirmed Merella's suspicions that there is a large pack of 
wolves acting in this area.  On the map included I have indicated where 
I believe the wolf den to be located.  Follow us if you can, but be 
cautious.  We can ill-afford another mysterious disappearance.  Until we 
meet again.

dissolved into a pile of rancid dust.

Opal Stone
This stone has a certain energy about it.  It may come in useful 
although, at this point, you aren't sure where.

Pendant
This is a small and fairly unremarkable silver pendant in the shape of a 
miniature sword, hanging on a delicate chain and meant to be worn around 
the neck and next to the skin.

Piece of Burial Mask
At first look this seems to be just a shattered piece of pottery.  
Closer examination reveals that this is a single piece of King Strohm 
the third's burial mask.  With all of the pieces it would be possible to 
reconstruct the mask.  What good this would do, you do not know.

Piece of Red Cloth
This is a piece of red cloth that Tirdir claimed to have torn off of his 
captor's clothing.  Perhaps you should keep watch for a man in red as 
you move through the city.

Pipe
This is a dark and delicately-crafted meerschaum pipe used for smoking 
particular roots and odorous plants.  It appears to have been carved 
from felsul root, itself, and smells faintly of brimstone and cinnamon.

After having used the Rift Device, it cannot be used again due to the 
curse put upon it.  The Avatar who gave it to you asked that you return 
it to him when you have used it to help defeat the Unseeing Eye.

Rift Device
The mysterious Rift Device.  This rod is said to be so destructive that 
it was cursed by the gods and buried deep within the Earth.  The ancient 
god Amaunator and his worshippers were charged with the task of guarding 
it.  Amaunator's fading Avatar has allowed you to use it with the 
expressed purpose of destroying the Unseeing Eye.  The Avatar asked that 
you return it when your task is done, as it would be exceptionally 
dangerous to bring this device above ground.

Rift Device Part
This is the first part of the Rift Device rod.  This section of the rod 
is highly coveted by the Unseeing Eye.

Ritual Scroll
This is the scroll provided by the Knights of the Vigil to reinforce the 
seals keeping the Imprisoned One in the dungeon.

Ruby Stone
This stone has a certain energy about it.  It may come in useful 
although, at this point, you aren't sure where.

Rune of Imprisonment
This rune has had a special enchantment placed upon it, allowing a mage 
to cast a very special version of the Imprisonment spell.  This item is 
specifically attuned to Lord Ketlaar Argrim, and will function against 
him and him alone.

Sapphire Stone
This stone has a certain energy about it.  It may come in useful 
although, at this point, you aren't sure where.

Scepter of Radiance
With the gems restored, you can understand how this magnificent treasure 
earned its grand moniker.  Each gem glows with its own inner brilliance, 
bathing the completed scepter in a luminous rainbow.

Scroll Case
This sturdy container allows dozens of scrolls to be placed in it, safe 
from exposure to fire, rain, or lighning -- common hazards faced by any 
adventuring wizards.

Second journal of Jon Irenicus
Victory!  I am restored!  ????? has given exactly what I needed, exactly 
as I demanded, and now I see where Bodhi has found such fire!  I feel 
the essence of the gods within me!  Damn Ellesime's curse for the weak 
minded spell that it was; now I am free.  ????? did not make proper use 
of the heritage given @@@.
Now comes the time of retribution.  I will not allow such a crime to go 
unpunished.  The audacity of Ellesime, claiming my punishment was just, 
and the hypocrisy of 'my' people, accepting such an act while decrying 
mine.  I will not let this rest.  I will take what I intended, and those 
that would stand before me will fall as they should.  Today is a much 
better day.  I will act at my leisure.

Sekolah's Tooth
Only this gigantic shark tooth, said to have been left by the sahuagin 
god Sekolah, can open the way to the Rebel Prince's base.

These heavy scales glisten under the light and are warm to the touch.  
There are a significant number of them salvaged from the corpse of the 
shadow dragon... perhaps they might be useful in the formation of some 
kind of shield or armor.

Shadow Dragon Wardstone
This wardstone is a virtual area of darkness, and seems to suck the very 
light from space around it.  The shape of the stone is hard to discern, 
cloaked in shadow as it is.

This is a piece of a Silver Sword, a vorpal two-handed sword used by the

Valhalla.  As part of their service these warriors must offer their 
service to any who blow a horn of Valhalla.  This horn will summon forth

recent earthworks of the gnomes that broke through into the prison of 
the beast that threatens the town.  Use this scroll to reseal the hole.

Tanner's Letter
I am bid to write this by those we serve.
You who carry out the work, I am your humble servant.  When at last you 
need the final ingredient for the grand project, I shall be the one that 
brings it to you.  Seek me out in the hills of Umar, and signal your 
identity witht he purchase of the book, The History of the Zhentarim.  
This will identify you, for I do not know your name, nor should I.  The 
need for security is paramount, so you must also utter my secret name, 
constructed from the name of your immediate master.  There will be no 
mistake with this method.
Our names are the same in their scale and their cut.
The last of his begins just as the first of mine.
The second of my first is the second of his first, though regressed a 
full four steps.
The third of my first is four more than the last of his first.
The entire last of my first is the last of his first, except the first 
one of these is the first of my last.
The first of his last is mine plus one.
The next of my last is the last of his first plus one.
The last of my last are third and second, coming in first for him.
I am sorry for such games, but it is certain that only you shall know 
this.  I await your arrival.

is one of the keys required to open the Watcher's Door.

Thrall Collar
This collar is used to dominate and enslave any individual who wears it.  
The slaves, or thralls, are usually controlled by the bearer of the

Tombelthen's Journal (2nd half)
This is half of a page of parchment, yellowing and crumbling with age 
and speckled with old stains.  The top of the page is torn and jagged, 
as if ripped from its other part.  Its ink is faded but still legible, 
however, and reads:
"--clearing in the south of the area, placed carefully within a standing 
column of rock.  These columns are common in this area, and this column 
is different only in that its clearing is surrounded by a copse of 
trees.
I intend to send this journal on to my family, so that if I happen not 
to make it home, one of them might track down my cache and benefit from 
it.

that grows through the palace.  The fruit has a tantalizing smell and 
looks ripe enough to eat.

Tree of Life Nuts
A small hardened fruit harvested from a section of the Tree of Life that 
grew into the palace.  There is no obvious use for the smaller fruits 
but they have power and should be kept.

Troll Painting
An oil painting of a troll.  The work is amateurish at best.

Umberhulk Painting

Warden's Note
The scroll reads as follows:
'Heed this, inmate!
The true test of madness is the simple measurement of the mind's 
precision.  The cured shall be rewarded.  The afflicted shall wander 
without recourse.'

Wardstone
This stone looks as if it has been split in half.  There is an 
inscription on it:
Two towers to ever guard the tomb,
Two wards to now enter the room.

Wardstone for Asylum
This is the wardstone obtained from Perth the Adept.  It should lower 
the wards that keep you from entering Spellhold.

Wave Blade
Part of the Wave
This is a piece of the Wave, a powerful halberd created as a weapon of 
vengeance by a cult worshipping Umberlee.  It apparently draws water out 
of its victims, and is able to slay creatures of fire almost instantly.  
Tales say the Wave was lost long ago to the fire giants of the Storm 
Horn Mountains, but was eventually found by the adventurer Arganon of 
the Long Reach.  He either lost the weapon to a wager in the planar city 
of Sigil, or it rests with his bones when his ship was sunk during a 
great storm in the Sea of Swords.  No one knows for sure.

Wooden Stake
A sharpened, wooden stake that is marked with the holy symbol of Selune.

rest... although likely the vampire would have to be immobile (at rest) 
in order to do so properly.

Necklaces
----------
Necklace of Form Stability
Necklace of Form Stability
Dydaar'a of the Altered was a witch of great temper who rewarded the 
slightest insult with harsh punishment.  Often this meant several weeks 
transformed into some form of wild beast, which of course earned her 
many enemies.  It is recorded that she once fought a mage named Maxell 
who had previously suffered such a fate.  For his return he had prepared 
this necklace, designed to prevent her changing his form, but he could 
not shield those around his as well.  Apparently an impromptu army of 
farmers-turned-bears eventually overwhelmed him.

Ninja-To
----------
Ninja-To
Ninja-To
The sword of the ninja, the ninja-to, is of lower quality than other 
Kara-Tur blades such as the katana.  The ninja-to is short with a 
straight blade, making it ideal for the subterfuge of the ninja.  The 
ninja-to is also more suited to fighting in closed places, sometimes 
giving the ninja an advantage over the longer blades that the samurai 
used.

Plate Mail
----------
Ankheg Plate Mail
This plate mail has been expertly crafted.  Sheathed in the chitinous 
scales of the ankheg, it provides a greater degree of protection than 
traditional plate mail and is not succeptible to rust.  As any world-
weary adventurer will tell you, however, the best appreciated aspect of 
ankheg mail is its light weight and low encumbrance.  Monsters come and 
go but fatigue is a constant enemy.

Delver's Plate +2
This armor has been worn by many a fine soldier, but among the best 
known, and for whom it was named, was Delver Kinlake.  He was a vagabond 
whose strong sword-arm and keen wits made him a respected general to the 
Lords of Waterdeep.  A gift from Lord Baeron, the armor served Delver 
well for thirty years, and after his death, it passed to his eldest son.  
It has since made its way into the hands of a variety of adventurers.

title.  He had hoped to strike fear in his enemies, but Adarius set a

said, however, that most adventurers die in their armor and are not

Dragon Scale armor is light of weight, strong, and resistant to fire.  
Because of these properties it is much sought after, but finding, let

those of the adventuring profession.

Ring of Acuity
Ring of Acuity:
The origins of this ring are unclear, and while its enchantments share 
similarities with historical examples of Rings of Wizardry, there is 
something strange in how it feels, either in the weight of the metal or 
in the aura it projects, and it does not function the same.  It was 
likely found on some distant plane, and as such, its maker will remain a 
mystery to you.

Ring of Air Elemental Command
Air elementals are make for powerful foes but with this ring they can 
become valuable allies.  Dark tales tell of groups of Red Wizards all

of these rumors is questionable the fact remains that a ring of this

sought after by royalty, influential political figures and other 
potential assassination targets.
STATISTICS: 
Wearer is immune to all poison.

Ring of Clumsiness
Ring of Clumsiness:  'The Jester's Folly'
The most notorious owner of this ring made a substantial living 
exploiting its cursed nature.  Gregoria the Foole, a jester by trade, 
would use his incomparable sleight of hand to switch this ring with that 
of a patsy taken from his audience.  The rest of his performance would 
involve the mocking of the newly clumsy individual, much to the delight 
of their comrades.  The ring was removed (by a method known only to the 
wily jester) only once the stooge had promised no reprisals for the 
treatment he had received; though Gregoria frequently still had to make 
a hasty retreat.  His last known performance was rumored to have been an 
ill-humored mage in Zhentil Keep; a show from which he did not flee 
quite fast enough.

Ring of Gaxx
Ring of Gaxx
This ring is relatively unadorned, but the vile magic within radiates 
intense evil.  Indeed, its creator, Kangaxx, was no less evil himself, 
even before millennia of undeath honed his power.  It is said that a 
cadre of Netheril mages fought and imprisoned the demilich once, but 
being unable to truly destroy him they became liches themselves to stand 
guard over his remains.  The construction of the ring may have led to 
their enmity, as each of the gem's nine facets was supposedly empowered 
by sacrifice and death.

This ring and several of its type were originally crafted to protect the 
sons of King Castter De'wess, though who uttered the enchantment is 
unknown.  History records that the rings remained within that family for 
at least 13 generations, though they were all apparently lost within the 
space of one.  Enmity between the King and the family of the creator may 
be to blame.

Ring of Protection +2
Ring of Protection +2:  'The Guard's Ring'
The Guard was an immortal sentry assigned to protect a tomb that 
sheltered the body of a princess of the Akanal.  Over millennia respect 
for the grave disappeared with the memory of the royal family, and 
adventurers began to try their luck with the Guard.  It was inevitable 
that he would eventually be bested, and when he was, the ring he wore 
was one of many treasures taken from the tomb.

Ring of Regeneration
Ring of Regeneration
A lowly ranked Red Mage named Huhhus is said to have discovered the 
perfect way to distill troll flesh to make a potion that provided the 
same regenerative ability as that of the troll.  Few were willing to 
drink the vile liquid however and decades later a student of Huhhus 
created this ring, building upon the foundations of knowledge laid by 
Huhhus.  Within the hollow cavity of the jade ring floats the ichor and 
brains of a troll, providing a limited regenerative capability to the 
wearer.
STATISTICS
Equipped Abilities:  Wearer regenerates 1 hit point every 6 seconds

Ring of Spell Turning
Ring of Spell Turning
A gift to Derek Poodon, apprentice warrior, this ring was his salvation 
when he stumbled upon two Red Wizards traveling the Cloakwood Forest.  
Enraged at being disturbed, the mages unleashed a score of Magic 
Missiles at the seemingly helpless Derek, but to their brief surprise, 
the assault reflected back and killed them both.  Thereafter, without 
having lifted his blade, Derek was rather sheepishly known as Derek the 
Red Slayer.
STATISTICS
Special Abilities:  Cast minor spell turning once per day

Ring of the Ram
Ring of the Ram
Also known as the Breaker of Castles, with one word this ring can 
unleash fantastic and deadly powers.  When it is triggered, a barely 
descernible ram-like shape billows forth from the ring.  This force can 
potentially knock opponents off of walls, destroy castle gates, or crush 
enemies, but it is damaging as well, in its own right.
STATISTICS
Damage:  Once per day, 5-30 hit points of damage to an opponent.

Ring of Wizardry

Robe of Vecna

Rods
----------
Rod of Absorption
Rod of Absorption
This rod acts as a magnet, drawing magic spells of any nature (priest or 
wizard) into itself.  It then nullifies their effects.  The magic 
absorbed must have been directed at the character possessing the rod.  
To activate this absorption ability the user must use the wand after 
which time they will be protected for four rounds or until the 
absorption disappears.
The rod will absorb nine levels of spells (and can defend against spells 
up to ninth level in power).  Each use of the rod expends one charge.
STATISTICS
Special Abilities (one charge):  Spell absorption for four rounds
Usable By:
Cleric

Rod of Lordly Might
Rod of Lordly Might
Also called The Wrath of Three Kings, though not associated with any 
named king in particular, this rod was likely made in 1090DR.  It saw 
use during The Battle of the Bones, but for which side is uncertain as 
it was found amongst the dead after a larger skirmish.  Three buttons 
unlock the rod's magic:  the first transforms it into a fearsome 
enchanted Mace; the second, a hypnotic Flaming Blade; the third, a 
barbed Spear.  Only warriors can properly use its exotic mix of 
weaponry.

Rod of Resurrection
Rod of Resurrection
This rod enables anyone to resurrect the dead as if they were of high 
enough level to cast the resurrection spell and if they were a priest.

Rod of Terror
When activated this rod may be used as a staff +3.  Any creature hit by 
the rod must make a saving throw vs. spells or flee in terror, fearing 
the wielder as if he or she were a flesh eating demon from the Abyss.  
There is a drawback to using this rod however.  Each time the rod is 
used there is a 20% chance that the wielder loses one point of Charisma 
permanently.

This ancient bronze sword is set with six matching bloodstones, and was

and apprentice.  Galloma died before Dramnek's tutorage could be 
completed however and the youth found himself once more alone in the 
world.  Eventually he made his way to the streets of Athkatla.  There he 
became a cutpurse, augmenting his thieving skills with the little magic

None know better than Halflings the value of a well-placed stone when 
confronting a larger foe.  This particular weapon was the property of a 
young woman named Arla Surestep, one of the few small-folk that leave 
the hearth to seek adventure.  Legend speaks of the diminutive Arla 
using this sling to place a well-sharpened pebble through the skull of a 
green dragon in mid-flight, though the same tale in another tavern 
places the stone squarely in the creature's hindquarters for more 
humorous than lethal effect.  It would seem that Halflings prefer 
entertainment over accuracy when it comes to their history.

Staff of the Woodlands
Known only as the "Wild Man of the Wood", the man that carried this

returned to the soil.  Those who saw him remember his dark, bark-like 
skin, a feature that would fade if the staff were set aside.  He would 
harass irresponsible loggers and poachers, and old-timers tell of 
mercenaries chasing him with a dozen hunting dogs or more.  The animals 
seemed ready to rip the poor druid to pieces, but he quickly turned them 
on their former masters.  Rushing forward in hopes of ending his 
influence, the men-at-arms saw the final power of the staff, and as the 
vegetation trembled with the "Wild Man's" magical calling, there formed 
a green, rotting mix of life and death that shambled overtop of the

----------
Book of Infinite Spells
This ancient tome creaks as you open it.  Each page of the Book of 
Infinite Spells contains a spell described in layman's terms, easy 
enough for a thief, cleric or even a fighter to understand and cast it.  
Each spell on a page can be cast once per day.  A second function of the 
book is to turn to a different page of the book.  This allows for the 
possibility of getting a better spell.  However, once the page has been 
turned the previous spell is lost forever, unless it happens to appear 
again.
Be warned.  Once you turn to the last page of the book, you are stuck 
with that spell.
The spell on this page is:
Fireball (Evocation)
Level:  3
Range:  Visual range of caster
Duration:  Instantaneous
Casting Time:  3
Area of Effect:  30-foot radius
Saving Throw:  1/2
A fireball is an explosive burst of flame, which detonates with a low 
roar and delivers damage proportional to the level of the wizard who 
cast it - 1d6 points of damage for each level of experience of the 
spellcaster (up to a maximum of 10d6).  The wizard points his finger and 
speaks the range (distance and height) at which the fireball is to 
burst.  A streak flashes from the pointing digit and, unless it impacts 
upon a material body or solid barrier prior to attaining the prescribed 
range, blossoms into the fireball (an early impact results in an early 
detonation).  Creatures failing their saving throws each suffer full 
damage from the blast.  Those who roll successful saving throws manage 
to dodge, fall flat, or roll aside, each receiving half.

The Book of Kaza
The Book of Kaza is a famed tome written by the lich, Kaza.  It is said 
to deal with the darkest secrets of necromancy, though the pages appear 
to be blank when you look at it.  Kaza was destroyed during the upheaval 
of Netheril's final days.  The book was brought to what is now Amn by 
Kaza's disciples.  How it has come to its present location after so many 
years is anyone's guess.

Book of Rituals
This is a book of Elemental Rituals that is the possession of a mage 
called Vithal.  It is of little use to any other person.

Conjur Ota Servanta
Conjur Ota Servanta
This text is written in a very old dialect of southern common that you 
are not familiar with, thought it does not appear to be a particularly 
ancient tome.  It seems to be a section of the personal journal of a 
noble named Tomass Sangui, and deals with the acquiring and control of 
his most devoted servants.  It is difficult to ascertain much more, 
though from the frequency of certain words you are reasonably sure that 
Tomass was creating vampire minions, if not some other creature that 
feeds on blood.  His knowledge on the subject seems quite intimate 
indeed, and he details the long process of completely turning a victim.  
Apparently, if the process is interrupted it can be reversed, but the 
author does not say how.  There is a stamp on the back of the book that 
indicates it was once archived and recorded by the followers of Oghma.

Dea Vampir Becomos
Dea Vampir Becomos
This book has been drenched in blood, ruining most of the pages within.  
The original ink, faded to begin with, is now thoroughly illegible.  A 
more recent script handwritten in the margins has left an impression 
revealing a few words here and there, just enough to decipher the nature 
of the tome.  This text apparently dealt with the process that one would 
go through to become a vampire, though the little you can see gives no 
indication why someone would want to do such a thing.  There is a stamp 
on the back of the book suggesting that this tome was once archived and 
recorded by the followers of Oghma.

Elminster's Ecologies:  Appendix IIIa
Elminster's Ecologies:  Appendix IIIa
This time-worn tome is written by the sage Elminster, and apparently 
part of a much larger body of work containing detailed studies of most 
of the strange creatures from around Faerun.
The appendix seems to refer to newly-discovered variations on normal 
breeds of creatures.  Of particular interest:
"Dense Puddings - a relative of the slimes and molds, this pudding is 
relatively normal...except when exposed to electricity or fire.  When 
this occurs, it splits into new puddings and can therefore be very 
dangerous."
"Fire Trolls - a new form of troll thought to have been created by 
sorcerous Fire Giants for use as servants and guards.  They are similar 
to regular trolls in most respects except for their lava-temperature 
skin and burning touch.  Once they are defeated, they can only be 
permanently killed by cold or acid."
"Fission Slime - an off-shoot of the slimes and molds, this particular 
slime will split into new and independent creatures when hit.  It is 
vulnerable to fire, which will kill it permanently."
"Magic Golems - this rare type of golem is formed from pure magical 
energy and is completely immune to spellcraft as well as enchanted 
weapons.  To my knowledge, only weapons without enchantments have any 
effects on this creature."
"Marileths - while this is apparently a legitimate form of demon, it is 
one that only an exceptional few have encountered and survived.  The 
Marileth is a six-armed demon with a human female front half and the 
back half of a snake.  She is incredibly quick and deadly, and on top of 
her martial prowess with six swords, she casts spells as well.  Fighters 
should beware: in addition to being immune to normal weapons and minor 
enchantments, this demon also likes to cast Immunity to Magic 
Weapons...which must be dispelled if a fighter is to have any chance 
with his armaments."

Golem Building Book
Finally, I have created a guardian Golem that is specially suited for 
the challenging task of cleansing my sphere of planar creatures.  It is 
exceedingly efficient in combat, having just recently destroyed a score 
of Dretch and Chasme demons, though it was damaged in the encounter.  
These notes will serve as a reminder to me on the proper method of 
constructing the Golem should it be destroyed.
Note to self:  Avoid engaging other planar creatures.  The exercise is 
quite difficult and better left to the Golem.
A standard Golem requires two legs, two arms and a head.  Be wary that 
some denizen of the Sphere does not steal any of my spare Golem pieces.  
It would be frustrating to have to actually track down the pieces 
myself.
The most difficult task comes after the pieces are assembled in the 
workroom.  To activate the Golem you must...
(Unfortunately the pages past this point are burnt and their words can 
no longer be deciphered)

History of the Drow
History of the Drow, The Descent:
We know very little of the Ilythiiri, or "Elves of the South," before 
this crucial event.  Even they they were known as "Dark Elves," for the 
hue of their skins.  They dwelt in the jungles and hot forests of the 
South.  A proud, warlike, culturally advanced (some sages of other elven 
peoples say "decadent") folk, the Ilythiiri attacked all neighbors, 
including other elven tribes.  Their cruel raids and depredations, 
ordered by warlike nobility and the clergy of their two cruel deities, 
Ghaunadaur and Lolth, forced elves, humans, dwarves, and others to ally 
against them.
Defeated in a series of titanic magical battles, the dark elves fled 
into underground warrens they had earlier discovered.  This event, known 
as "the Descent," marked the end of the drow as a surface-dwelling race.

History of the Moonsea
History of the Moonsea:
The Moonsea has a long history as the border between the elven lands to 
the south and the darker, more sinister lands of the Ride and Thar, home 
of dragons and giant and ogre tribes in great multitudes.  The deep sea 
was an excellent barrier to the raiders, as those tribes who sought 
invasion had to detour around and through the lands that would 
eventually hold Yulash, Zhentil Keep, and Hillsfar.
The first true settlement in Moonsea was Northkeep, a shining citadel 
established as a beacon of civilization and a jumping-off point for 
merchants seeking trade with the dwarves of the North - including not 
only Tethyamar, but the clans of the Cold Lands - who traded their 
metalwork and craft for much-needed magic.  In the end, Northkeep was 
sunk beneath the icy waters of the Moonsea by the inhuman forces, and 
humankind suffered one of many setbacks in the region.
So has been the nature of human habitation of this region since the 
beginning.  Human settlements thrive for a few years, usually through 
sheer willpower and on the strength of a sharp sword, and then are 
overrun by goblins, orcs, dragons, beholders, or giants.  Phlan has 
fallen and risen again.  Yulash is a ruin where a decade ago there was a 
thriving town.  Hulburg and Sulasspryn are empty hulks.  Each of the 
cities of the Moonsea seems threatened with extinction in its turn, then 
is rebuilt.
This cycle may be the reason that only the strongest and the most savage 
survive, even prosper, in the lands of the Moonsea.  The greatest cities 
- Hillsfar, Mulmaster, and the impenetrable Zhentil Keep - are all ruled 
by evil people who control their lands with iron grips.  The lesser 
cities, Elventree, Phlan, and Thentia, may be less evil, but have a 
strong, independent, almost chaotic nature.  In many ways the Moonsea is 
a frontier, with a frontier mentality.

History of the North
History of the North - Recent History of the North:
In the waning summer months of 1367, an immense orc horde descended from 
the Spine of the World, intent on winding its way south into the trade 
lands of the North.  This force of orcs, led by King Greneire, surged 
its way south between the Moonwood and the Cold Wood, stopping just 
outside the Citadel of Many Arrows.
King Obould, orc ruler of the Citadel of Many Arrows, was terrified at 
the prospect of another orc horde, despite the fact that he knew they 
should be working together against the humans of the North and the spawn 
of Hellgate Keep.  His tribal shamans, however, had been predicting a 
treacherous fall of the citadel - and they'd told the king that he'd be 
disposed by other orcs.
Thus, it was a dark day when King Greneire and his horde of 150,000 orcs 
appeared on the plains outside the Citadel of Many Arrows.  King Obould 
announced to his followers that this horde had been sent to dislodge 
them from their home and send them out to be scavengers among the 
plains.  He vowed that, as Gruumsh as his witness, the Citadel of Many 
Arrows would slaughter these treacherous orcs "like elves during a 
festival."
For four months, the 40.000 orcs within the citadel held their ground.  
Assault after assault was mounted against the high walls of the 
garrison, but the attacking orcs were losing far more than the 
defenders.  Still, the living conditions within the walls - never too 
good to begin with - created losses of their own.
The battle for the Citadel of Many Arrows culminated during the first 
week of Uktar.  As another light blanket of snow sought to bury the 
gathered orcs, King Greneire threw his entire remaining army at the 
citadel, bursting its gates and pitting orc against orc in a flurry of 
swords.  As the two orc kings sought one another out along the ramparts, 
the citadel began to burn.
The orcs that survive the battle still speak of the superhuman prowess 
of the two kings as they battled one another before their troops.  
Finally, however, King Obould ran Greneire through with his long sword, 
but Obould was severely wounded by the time Greneire had breathed his 
last breath.  The orcs erupted into battle once again, and no one is 
quite certain what became of King Obould.
It was through the smoke and snow that the victors of the conflict 
emerged:  the dwarves of Clan Warcrown along with a contingent of troops 
from Silverymoon.  Charging in through the shattered gates, these new 
attackers quickly routed the exhausted orcs of the citadel, sending them 
scurrying off into the wilderness.
King Emerus Warcrown now rules the Citadel of Many Arrows, though the 
dwarves now call the city by its old name of Felbarr.  Most in the North 
still tend to refer to the city as the Citadel, however, waiting to see 
if it can withstand the next orc horde.  King Warcrown has put out a 
call for all dwarves to help defend the citadel, and news of a new vein 
of gold and silver is spreading rapidly through dwarven communities.

History of Waterdeep
History of Waterdeep - Age I, the Rise of the Warlords:
Over the years, the forest was cut back farther and farther from the 
shore, and tribes began to stay most of the year there, farming the 
cleared land.  The wiser among them claimed and controlled some of the 
timber in order to trade for more weaponry and tools.  Such claims 
angered many who found the squatters rich from frequent trade, and 
brought attacks from land and sea, the more warlike tribes slaughtering 
the more sedentary settlers.  Noted among these tribes was that led by 
Nimoar, a chieftain who ordered his people to seize the farms, crude 
wooden docks, trading sheds, and storage barns built up around the bay.  
They settled there themselves, and erected a log palisade within an 
earthen embankment to protect the holdings.  After several abortive 
pirate and tribal raids, Nimoar's people thrived in their new home, a 
fledgling town referred to as "the town of Water-deep."
Farther north, orc tribes had outgrown their mountain strongholds.  
Attempts to expand underground met with fierce dwarven resistance 
(although many small gnomish colonies were overwhelmed and wiped out), 
and the orcs spread out on the surface of the land, coming south and 
down out of the mountains, hurling their seemingly endless numbers 
against all who stood in their path.  Here and there elven enclaves held 
out, but the push southward displaced many other northern inhabitants, 
including the "everlastin ones" (trolls), who came down into the newly-
cleared lands northeast of Nimoar's Hold, those lands now known as the 
Trollmoors.  Nimoar died of old age during this time of increasing 
danger.  Younger War Lords led the men of Waterdeep (for so the ship-
captains called the harbor) in battles against the trolls.  There were 
many bloody struggles between men and trolls for a decade, until the 
magic of a Northern youth named Ahghairon turned the fortunes of war 
against the trolls, and the "everlasting ones" were destroyed or 
scattered.  Ahghairon rose slowly in skill and power with the passage of 
years, until he became a great mage.  He discovered a supply of potions 
of longevity (or learned the art of making such), for he lived on, still 
physically a man in his prime, for decade upon decade.
Fearing further attacks, the men of Water Deep raised a small keep on 
the slopes of Mount Waterdeep above their farms, where fire arrows from 
on high could defend against attacking trolls.  Many outlying tribes who 
had come to the settlement for safety from the trolls stayed, and 
expanded the walls with new farms several times.  War Lords ruled the 
Free City of Waterdeep, holding it independent and increasingly wealthy 
as years passed.

History of Waterdeep
History of Waterdeep - Age IV, The Return of the Lords:
One day to the Courts of the Lord Magister came two people masked and 
robed as the Lords of Waterdeep of old.  Where they came from no one 
knew, but they appeared in the Castle's Great Hall where the Courts 
were, and commanded the Lords Magister to leave the city forthwith.  
Laughing, the Lords Magister refused, whereupon the shorter of the 
masked intruders (the lady Shilam, apprentice to Ahghairon and his 
undeclared heir as first Lord of the City) blasted them with lightning 
and fire, and their very thrones were shattered and toppled.
The taller of the two intruders (Baeron) then called for the heads of 
the noble houses to come to them, or leave the city forthwith and 
forever, if they cared not to come by nightfall.  All in the Courts 
heard, and the news was cried in the streets.
The surviving nobles came, reluctantly and with bodyguards, expecting 
such a summons to be a trap.  Baeron spoke to them and the crowd of 
curious townsfolk that had also come, saying, "this must not happen 
again."  If Waterdeep was to be safe once more, he told them, all must 
support what he and his fellow Lord now planned, as they had supported 
Ahghairon in the past.  The two would choose others to be Lords as 
before, he said, and they would rule in secret, as before - save for 
himself.  He removed his mask, and said, "I am Baeron.  I would be Lord 
as Ahghairon was before.  I would be safe in this my city again."  And 
the folk of Waterdeep there agreed.  Shilarn, still masked, commanded 
that the houses of the Two Lords Magister be Outcast.  There was 
protest, and she raised her hands that had blasted thrones, and it was 
still again.  And the house of Gildeggh and of Zoar were outcast.
Peace returned to the city, and Waterdhavians to their labors.  To 
inhibit discovery of who the Lords were, Baeron selected certain men of 
character whom he knew well, and appointed them Magisters ("Black 
Robes," they were soon called, from their robes of office) under the 
Lords, to judge and apply the laws of Waterdeep in daily affairs.  These 
Magisters he paid well, to raise them form temptation, and gave lodgings 
to those who feared for safety to dwell among the people.  To so serve, 
he told the city, was a burden, not a proud misuse of authority, and if 
any wished to no longer serve, or were found wanting, they were not to 
be vilified, but accorded respect.  And over the Magisters the Lords sat 
in their Court, to correct and overrule the judgements of the Magisters.  
Baeron told the people that none were to decry or belittle any judgments 
of Magisters that the Lord saw fit to alter or cast aside.  If any 
thought ill of the offices or those who held them they could turn back 
to the rule of sword and whim, and perish as had those before them.  
Before the Lord's Court Baeron encouraged people to speak freely for the 
length of a short candle's burning, without fear of chastisement or 
reproach from the Lords for anything said, as long as they spoke openly 
and answered questions or opposing views put to them by any there.  
Thus, he held, just grievances of folk would be heard, no matter how 
small the matter or lowly the speaker.  And so it was.  Slow to take 
hold, until people knew it for careful justice, but enduring beyond 
Baeron's time, and beyond the time of their daughter Lhestyn "The Masked 
Lady," who wed Zelphar Arunsun of Neverwinter, and was mother to Khelben 
"Blackstaff" Arunsun, a Lord of Waterdeep today, who knows the secrets 
of long years as Ahghairon did.  And as the years have passed, Waterdeep 
has grown in size and variety, flourishing with good trade under the 
tolerance and protection of strong defenders and good government.  The 
years passed not without troubles, varying from the Godswar (when 
Waterdeep played host to gods dying and ascending) to such occurrences 
as a green dragon assailing the Field of Triumph (part of a plot by the 
Knights of the Shield to overthrow the Lords' Rule) but the city and her 
peoples survived and prevailed against all strife.  The Lords' Alliance 
provides continued safety for all the settlements of the northern Sword 
Coast and those inland, with Waterdeep as the heart of the alliance.  
Though it can be matched in size or commerce, there is no city the 
Realms over that compares to the sheer variety of life and experiences 
found in fair Waterdeep, Crown of the North.

Flamerule 7
Kaatje came to visit again.  A sweet child, eager to learn my ways with 
the wild creatures.
Flamerule 12
Dark creatures roam the forests.  Several townspeople have been slain by 
some unknown predator.  Everyone seems to have their own opinion of what 
is doing the killing.  The strangest thing is that the bodies are 
disappearing in the morning.  This leaves me baffled, for most signs 
point to a pack of wolves that have been in the area for a long time.  
Wolves don't steal bodies.
Flamerule 13
Or perhaps I should say wolf-like creatures.  At night while I've been 
patrolling I've often caught shadowy glimpses of these 'wolves' running 
alongside me.  I've tried to attract their attention but they ignore me.  
I find this most strange, as if the pack is being controlled by someone 
else.  Years ago I spoke with the pack leaders and they were cordial.  
Now they either flee from me, or, and I fear to say this, they stalk me.
Flamerule 21
It is near noon and still the wood outside my cabin seems full of 
shadows.  I've been hard pressed to hear birds and most of the larger 
animals have long fled.  I plan to find the wolf's den (this afternoon).  
I've drawn a map of it.  All signs point to them as being the culprits, 
but what wolves act like these?  They are wolves with the cunning of 
men.
And there is something else, a whispering in my mind.  It is faint now, 
in the waking hours, but while I sleep I dream only of this voice and 
the face behind it.  Whether it is connected to the voices, I do not 
know.  I suspect by the time that the sun sets tonight I'll have answers 
to my questions.

Orcish Cookbook
Slice Onion, crush garlic, peel chestnuts, and cut boar into tiny cubes.  
In a greatpot over a large flame heat oil; when it begins to smell hot, 
toss in the elk feces, then pour in horse urine.  Mmmmmm...can you smell 
great food already?
Maybe use different stuff for stew if boar not available.  Flesh of 
genies from tomb would work well.  Could use wolf men in west dungeon.  
Hmmm.  If only I could avoid air monster in the well, then the well 
treasure would be MINE!  Then could buy any stuff for stew I wanted!

Tome of Amaunator
Blessed by the light of Amaunator.  The Temple of Amaunator shines like 
a beacon of radiance in the hills of Umar.  Amaunator wards us form the 
shadows of evil.  Pilgrims come from areas far off to be blessed by the 
beauty of Amaunator.  Amaunator is endless and without equal.
Yet our gods serves us well, in that he is constantly on vigil against 
shadows.  The Temple serves a further purpose towards this end.  
Amaunator keeps the caster of shadows from walking the land.  Any and 
all who dare to taste of shadow magic should know that Amaunator and his 
most holy servants will seek them out and cast them into chains within 
the Temple.  Lightstone, Dawn's Light, and Sun Rays are Holy Symbols, 
guides in any spiritual journey that a disciple of Amaunator my embark 
upon.
Blessed be the light of Amaunator.

Ending the Plague of Teeth
This tome is quite ancient, and you do not recognize the tongue in which 
it is written.  Fortunately, Bodhi has scrawled a translation of 
selected passages in the margins, as well as further questions she 
apparently wished to ask on the subject.
Stuat tuo Gotha:
The resolution:
With the witch at the fore, long previous to her treachery, we did 
stride the hills of Umar seeking comfort in our hour of need.  The time 
had come for the living to mourn no more, and the blades that were 
fettered by sentiment were cut free, and it was decided that we would 
speak for our lives with the sinews of our sword arms.  The honored dead 
that did take flight in the darkness of shadow would no more receive 
sorrow from those of us that had lost their friends and relatives to the 
plague of teeth.
Mornat de'pas Golvana Fathorn:
Battles when came the dead:
There came we, the army of light, armed with faith and conviction, and 
we did march unto the tombs of the restless dead during hours of day.  
With wooden edge we struck down master and slave, though many paid for 
each thrust with their lives.  In the fallen there was the danger of a 
scourge anew, and many of the newly infected seemed doomed to walk again 
with dire purpose.
Aegato Davon:
The plea:
"No more" cried we!  Nor more would we lose to the plague.  These new 
fallen could not be abandoned.  We had fought for our lives and theirs, 
and they would not be taken.  To the Temple we went, to the god of Sun 
and Light.  Amaunator would save them.  Amaunator, whose touch turns 
shadows to fire.  In the arms of the Sun god were the infected placed, 
and the hearts of their dark masters were laid there with them.  Blood 
did burn, and the dead returned, but not as undead or unliving, but 
alive and freed from taint.  Many did walk the light side home, when 
last the plague did fall.
Relevance of archaic worship of Amaunator?
Origin of vampiric plague?
Any link to a modern cure to be worried of?
Historical document or historical fiction?
A final note is scribbled...
*Interrogate Oghma monk at Docks district temple about further 
information.  He should be able to provide more information on reversing 
vampirism*

Umar Witch Project Journal
This journal seems to be that of an apprentice mage, telling the tale of 
her expedition into the Umar Hills with two other apprentices in the 
search for evidence of the fabled witch.  The tale is hard to believe, 
but seems to relate the group's horror at getting lost and being hounded 
by an unseen predator during the nights.  The script is in a panicky, 
feminine hand and the last page can barely be made out as follows:
"...sorry to Joshellus' mother.  I'm sorry about what happened to 
Michaelus.  There's something out here with us.  We thought it to be 
peasants but peasants aren't this clever.  Joshellus says its the witch.  
I hear her when I sleep.  I don't want to sleep.  I don't want to sleep.  
I don't want..."
The journal ends here.

Carsomyr +5
The Holy Avenger:  Carsomyr
Carsomyr is a weapon of legend, perhaps one of the most powerful blades 
ever forged on Faerun, though its origin and history is thought 
purposefully forgotten, such that the sword itself never overshadow the 
importance of the struggles that must be fought today.  It is infused 
with the very essence of virtue, and requires as much from any paladin 
that would hope to wield it.  The evils of the Realms must truly stand 
aside when this weapon is brought to bear, their magic dispelled with a 
word, steadfastly resisted with ease.  Carsomyr also harbors a special 
distaste for the forces of evil and chaos, and such creatures must fear 
additional damage from its touch in battle.

Flame Of The North
Two Handed Sword:  Flame of the North
The title does not refer to the blade itself, but rather to the woman 
who originally wielded it in the icy hinterlands of Faerun.  Her name 
was Carerra, and she was a veritable firestorm that swept across arctic 
trolls and the northern orcish tribes.  She was a hated enemy of many a 
shaman whose magic often floundered against her fury.  After a lifetime 
of raucous battle, it was old age that eventually claimed her.  The 
sword was passed to her granddaughter, an adventurer, who presumably 
brought it to Amn.

Harbinger +3
Two Handed Sword +3:  Harbinger
When the hero Trueblood destroyed the Harbinger, a demon gorging itself 
on the blood of peasant folk near Luskan, he bound its essence in the 
only vessel capable of holding it, his fabled sword, Deliverance.  
Though the evil creature was dominated by the will of the semi-sentient 
blade, it was not truly defeated, and it transformed the weapon from 
within.  Now it acts much like any other enchanted weapon, but when it 
strikes, there is a small chance that a fireball erupts, a sign that the 
demon within still rages at its imprisonment.  There is also a chance 
that any ogre it hits will be turned to stone.  Whether this is an 
ability of the demon or a vestigial power of the original blade is not 
known.

Lilarcor
Lawrence Lilarcor was well known, not for being brave, but as an idiot.  
As the tale goes, the boastful Lilarcor left his village at the urging 
of his friends so that the "great hero" could do battle with a devious 
Treant.  He walked for days in the dead of winter until, feverish, he 
found his target and began an epic wrestling match.  Unfortunately (or 
perhaps luckily), the "Treant" was nothing more than a craggy old normal 
oak.  His friends had been jesting, not actually expecting that Lilarcor 
would go fight the fictitiously dangerous tree.  That might have been 
the end of it, but Lilarcor, not really knowing what a Treant was in the 
first, didn't realize the truth.  He eventually uprooted the oak and, 
marching proudly home, he declared himself a hero.  Thus was born a 
laughing stock of epic proportions, and over time the name of Lilarcor 
became the sacrificial fool in many tales of "less than brilliance".
It is not known whether this enchanted weapon is Lilarcor himself, 
perhaps imprisoned by an evil mage or some other odd coincidence of 
fate, but it certainly acts in a manner consistent with his level of 
competence.  If it is he, he has never bemoaned his captivity.  He might 
not realize, or care, that he is no longer a human.
As a weapon, Lilarcor has its uses, but many a warrior has eventually 
given it away.  Banter such as "Ouch, that musta hurt", "Oh yeah!  Got 
'im good", and "Beware my bite for it might...might...might really hurt 
or something" is a constant barrage on a warrior's psyche.

Soul Reaver +4
Two Handed Sword +4:  Soul Reaver
A social faux pas placed upstart Andor Licon in a duel with Baron Eeirk, 
heir to a warrior king.  Though they seemed of even skill, Andor grew 
oddly weaker with each hit of the Baron's family blade.  Panicking, he 
bade his bodyguards kill Eeirk.  Despite his claims of morality, some 
noted that the young noble had positioned his men before the duel was 
even underway, and though he professed disdain for its dark magic, Andor 
made a tidy fortune off the sale of the evil blade.

Sword of Chaos +2
Sarevok's Sword of Chaos
The blade of Sarevok, brother of ?????, used in the battle they fought 
in faraway Baldur's Gate.  ????? prevailed, destroying Sarevok's plans 
and rescuing the Sword Coast from the brink of war.  The sword itself 
defies identification, likely forged specifically for Sarevok to best 
focus the infernal energy he hoped to control.  Much of its power died 
with him.

it to the wielder.  This will not heal beyond the wielder's maximum.

Wands
----------
Wand of Apprenti
This wand was created for you by your apprentices, and will randomly 
cast a variety of three spells, each from a separate elemental source.  
It apparently has 50 charges.

Wand of Cloudkill
This wand emits a vapor bubble that travels towards the target exploding 
into a deadly cloud of noxious gas that expands to fill an area roughly 
20 feet in radius.  The cloud will instantly kill any creature with 4 HD 
or less with no saving throw.  Any creature with 5 to 6 HD must make a 
saving throw or be slain.  Creatures with greater than 6 HD simply take 
1-10 damage for every round that they remain within the cloud.  The 
cloud will dissipate after approximately 1 turn.
STATISTICS:
Effects:  1-10 damage per round
1-4 HD:  Instant death no save
5-6 HD:  save vs. spell or instant death
Range:  60 ft.
Area:  20' radius
Duration:  1d4 turns
Not usable by:
Fighter
Cleric
Druid
Thief

Wand of Fear
A Wand of Fear strikes terror into the heart of any creature within its 
target area.  This panic is not universal, however, as the stout of 
heart have been known to resist its magic.  Like all wands, the Wand of 
Fear can only be used a limited number of times before it is destroyed.
STATISTICS:
Special:  Cause enemies to run in fear unless they save vs. spells
Range:  100 ft
Area:  20 ft radius
Duration:  15 rounds
Not usable by:
Fighter
Thief

Wand of Wonder
Wand of Wonder
Only those with a gambling streak dare use this wand in battle.  When 
triggered it is, at best, unpredictable and, at worst, suicidal.  The 
whimsical mage Malimak created it as a gift for a rival, though more as 
a prank than with hurtful intent.  The recipients's reaction is not 
known, though Malimak relocated shortly thereafter.  It should be used 
with caution, or not at all.
STATISTICS
Special Abilities:  Random effects appear each time the wand is used

War Hammers
----------
Crom Faeyr
Crom Faeyr
This is the true name that the dwarven weaponsmith, Silverblade, gave to 
the weapon he intended to create for his son.  Alas, his son died before 
the weapon was ever completed, but here it stands complete... forged 
from the combined magic of the original hammer with the Gauntlets of 
Ogre Power and a Girdle of Frost Giant Strength.  Crom Faeyr gifts is 
user with all the powers of the original Hammer of Thunderbolts, in 
addition to enormous strength and the ability to kill golems, ettins and 
trolls in one blow.

Hammer of Thunderbolts +3
Hammer of Thunderbolts
A dwarven smith, Silverblade, forged this hammer and two other items; a 
girdle of giant strength and gauntlets of ogre power.  His intention was 
to gift them to his son, who was then a high officer in the dwarven 
armies, fighting the giant and ogre tribes of the area.  Unfortunately 
Silverblade's son died just after the completion of the three items and 
before they could be gifted to him.  In grief Silverblade himself donned 
the girdle and the gauntlets.  Taking up the Hammer of Thunderbolts he 
went to battle against the giant folk.  He died valiantly.  Alone, the 
Hammer of Thunderbolts is a powerful magical weapon but when merged with 
the gauntlets of ogre power and a girdle of giant strength the hammer is 
transformed.  This transformation requires magical assistance.  The 
Hammer of Thunderbolts is then capable of doing an additional +8 damage 
as well as instantly killing any giant or ogre that it strikes.
