Things of Nehwon

Al-Nisr's Medallion

Campaigns:
Stormlands 2
A bright diamond medallion which always glimmers with light. It was worn by Al-Nisr's when he journeyed to the Lankhmar Continent on his great Quest. When Al-Nisr was killed by Coryon Horrible Abomination of Stone on top of Red Rock, the medallion remained there until Griflet retrieved it. The medallion was also sought by Lana Softhooves, who had been sent on a quest to retrieve it by a mysterious, hallucinogenic Stranger. Lana eventually retrieved the medallion from Griflet in Imric Nightmare woods, but she was later killed by the dragon Bloodbane's. Griflet buried the medallion with her near the ruins of Imric's Hold.

Black Caldron

Campaigns:
Fellowship of Mystery
Destroyed,
broken by the Knights of Adlerweg
The Black Caldron was a Chaos artifact which created living dead of corpses thrown inside. Malac used it to create an army of living dead troops in Berghof, just before the Berghovian Civil War. The caldron was destroyed by the liberating Knights of Adlerweg. The dead it created were driven out of Berghof and made their way to the Dunmere Hills.

Ejsinden, demon weapon

Campaigns:
Dunmere Hills
Ejsinden is a broadsword of Quarmallian origin, carved along its length with fanged mouths. It was taken from 'Warden' Gword by Ronaldo Vasquez, and later came to Cyric upon Vasquez' untimely death. The fangs crave blood.

Finger of Dirg, demon weapon

Campaigns:
Earth's End
Destroyed,
by Maelin, who submerged it in a bowl of his own blood.
The Finger of Dirg is a demon weapon created from the finger of a Lawful assassin of the Lake-lands. It grafts itself to the hand of its wielder and fights independently, extending itself like a tentacle. The wizard Ooorn the Red-Eyed acquired it then traded it with Valinwan of Earth's End (using Erei as a go-between). Albrecht von Linden severed the Finger from Valinwan's hand, and Maelin retrieved and later destroyed it.

Fountain of Dark Abundance

Campaigns:
Stormlands
Destroyed,
smashed by Buttercup with the Rod of Kulg at the Battle of the Fountain Court, Skunk*Seed*Behemoth.
The Fountain of Dark Abundance was a demonic entity in the shape of a fountain. It was created by the Quarmallians to harry the elves during the Elf-Quarmall War. Supplied with elven blood it could produce zombie-like needlemen which haunted the forests and would attack elves on sight.

After the war, the Fountain remained inert at one end of the Plaza of Dark Delights in the city of Lankhmar until it was removed in the 18th Year of the Basilisk by a group of Quarmallians (including Polydices), who presented it to the Grey Man to aid him against Imric and the elves. Oovra used the Rod of Kulg to fracture the fountain and remove one of its gargoyles; this was later found and used by Griflet against Grithir at the battle of the Druid's Mound in the Stormlands Campaign.

Pouch of Halea, demon item

Campaigns:
Earth's End
Destroyed,
by Maelin blood, Scorpion*Murderer*Sea Serpent
The Pouch was one of three Chaotic items made from the body parts of Maelin family. The pouch, made from the abdominal skin of Maelin's sister in an evil ritual, always contained a gold piece. However each coin was inhabited by a part of a demonic intelligence. The pouch was purchased from beastmen merchants by Ooorn, who sold it to the merchant Finester. Finester used it to make (bring?) large amounts of gold, which drove him mad and was starting to affect many others in Lankhmar. When Maelin destroyed the pouch, the Gold Demon was thwarted, though not completely destroyed.

Roc, flagship of Kadesh

Campaigns:
Old Coast
Destroyed,
sunk by Quarn's Brrzzzt Demon.
The Roc was Prince Muburuk flagship and the pride of his fleet. After the Gypsy Nation's besieged Kadesh and demanded Quarn and Lucidia, Prince Muburuk sent the Roc to fetch them from Ilthmar. But they were not in town, so the captain broke into the House of Dark Delights and stole Lucidia's treasure chest. When Muburuk failed to return the treasure, a furious Quarn summoned an underwater demon to sink the vessel. Muburuk was not pleased.

Rod of Kulg, enchanted weapon

Campaigns:
Stormlands, Griflet's Adventures
The Rod of Kulg is an enchanted weapon originally owned by the Druids of the Stormlands, who kept it in Castle Kulg's in the safe-keeping of an appointed guardian (last of whom was Oovra). When the Grey Man acquired the Fountain of Dark Abundance, Oovra used the Rod to crack a gargoyle from it. Oovra replaced the Rod in its hiding place in Castle Kulg, where it was discovered during the Stormlands Campaign by Griflet and Kal Zakath after the Battle of Walthorp Downs. After Zakath's death, Buttercup acquired the Rod from the Grimlock Caves. Buttercup used the Rod to destroy the Fountain of Dark Abundance at the Battle of the Fountain Court.

Two years later, Griflet borrowed the Rod from Buttercup in order to finally destroy Coryon Horrible Abomination of Stone.

Swan Ships

Campaigns:
Griflet's Adventures
The Swan Ships are at least a thousand years old, and have endured time and weather. They are graceful, comfortable and fast and may be enchanted. (The wild elf vessels are more like Viking-style longships; the Wild Elves being used to discomfort while travelling). They could hold up to 200 warriors (that would be quite a full ship). The techniques which made the swan ships have probably been lost.

The Swan Ships were originally used by Imric and Coryon to remove their clans from the Isle of Zeçy. After the Nightmare, Griflet used the ships to transport the Elves up the Hlal River from Imric's Hold to Vardin's compound. One of the three ships was destroyed by the Wild Elves when Griflet sneaked on to the Blessed Isle.

Werewindle, Sword of the Stormlands, enchanted weapon

Campaigns:
Stormlands, Stormlands 2
Destroyed,
broken by the Giant of Tresswck
Werewindle was the magical sword traditionally belonging to the kings of the Stormlands. It was rumoured to be especially powerful against shape-shifters. Prince Podgett bore it against Bolga at the Battle of Frogton Fields. A knight named Hellpus (later Lord Hellpus of the Stormlands) picked Werewindle up after the battle, and took it to his castle in the Red Fallows. During the Stormlands Campaign, Lord Hellpus was defeated by a group of heroes (Daphne, Griflet, Buttercup, John Smith, Prince Eder and Lorathon Shadowblade). Daphne took Werewindle. Later (Stormlands 2 Campaign) she used the sword in the ritual of the Stone Circle to become Queen of the Stormlands. When Daphne was killed, Werewindle broke into two pieces. Lana Softhooves, perhaps a little mad with sorrow, threw the pieces in different directions into the swamp and walked away.
