You know very little about this item other than it was listed on the stained scroll that you uncovered beneath the city of emberfast and later, found resting at the foot of elderlord vanthor, enticing him to return to the living. nigel was able to trace the artifact to the hands of one, little john pinchpocket whom, giving the appropriate amount of encouragement, indicated that he was merely paid to smuggle the item into the mid-city of emberfast. his employer, one thane copperstacks, is said to live in the port city of summerset.
- The child uffizi has informed you that the tendershard crucible actually serves as a prison for galganax, gloom dragon of the gray wastes. its body was contained in the baneroot phylactery which you believe was consumed during avonathemon’s ritual under the highhouse of tandus quint.
- You have learned that the tendershard crucible is said to have been born in the blood of the raven queen.
- You have noticed that the tendershard crucible has been changing. first it began to grow fissures across its face. next, those fissures began to weep blood. the very stone itself has began to erode and nowhere, as the bearer, has felt increasing concern about its safety while still considering uffizi’s warning of its nature.
