Tales of Tolgard

Garreths Interlude
parting of ways

It has been awhile sense I wrote anything. Raiders of the Forsaken Dragon are an interesting group. A little too reserved for my taste but solid when push comes to shove. I have been thinking awhile now that its time to depart. They are setting up a settlement and that’s just what this world needs… more crap in the way of the natural order.

Anyways I need to head off. I left them a note with some of the stuff I had been carrying. I am sure they will become huge legends or die trying..my bets on die trying but you never know.

Im off to find the Guardians and devote my time to their cause. I hope that whomever replaces me isn’t a complete tool.

Maybe or paths will cross again in time.

I hope they don’t trust that Azana .. to much is off about her. The treasure spends well and will get me to where I am going. I just have some issues with the whole situation. that much money comes from somewhere and if they are hiding that trail this good they are up to something.

Until the next time. Bear your burdens well.

Gareth’s charge seemed to disrupt his spell…
“Apparently you want to do this the hard way…”

Cleric type- full plate with morning star.
Cure critical… (Spellcraft)

Looted the cleric.

Local Legends
No two books are even remotely close to the same thing

Int check- no organized in any fashion. Might be able to extrapolate- they are selected for no other reason.
Grabbed a book on local history and one on local legends.

Checked the dragon trash heap on the way out. Nothing of interest.
We made it out.
It’s late afternoon.
Headed to the closest camp. Made it. Rested.

On the way back – beginning of the first day of travel- ran into a hunter.
I’ve been out here for a while- an item of interest- if you want to buy it off me.
Fragile looking rod. Shaped like a long, thin ladder.
25 pp from group treasure.

We arrived in Perrish at the end of Fate 7th

He thanked us for the extra notes- distributing it to the local hunters to help.

Made it to Dunkenhudiem on the 10th.

Diamondheart – moving from collector to collector. Last know location of it was some documentation over in firefeather- shipping north to Folly. Propabley want to determine what happened out of Firefeather. Not through a company- through individuals. I do have a contact in Firefeather which is where I got the manifest. The guy- Raollin- city clerks in Firefeather. It had come through there. A month or two ago. His correspondence was brief.

(Gareth’s secret info on Azana – no mention on our continent until 4 to 4 ½ months ago. The Firefeather folks – her arrival at the port 4 ½ months ago. The church was formed a couple of weeks later and registered in Whisper. Wherever the wealth is coming from is elsewhere. Looked like it came from Amawa.)

Gave book on local history and local folklore to our research expert.

The Headpriest recovered the head.

A subtle rumble was detected by few.

Headpriest with a box with some stuff in it.
She is even more radiant. All actively inspired in her presence.
Seems to glide across the floor.
You all have done well- enjoy the spoils of your efforts. I may have a final- well, not final- but the last of my current searches. I will need to meditate on this for a couple of days.
There are three of them- you have one, you will be in possession of the second one shortly, and the third I will locate.

Start the community around there.
Establish a hunting camp- invite the camp.
Pay the lumberjacks- we need to lumber to clear the town and build it up.
People coming out here for their benefit, not ours.

+ heavy crossbow in group loot, Eris took a light crossbow from group loot

Back at Whisper on end of the day on the 26th of Fate
Heading over to see Azana and Fenedryll
Lady Azana invited us into her inner sanctum.
Took us into a large room. Step through.
Stepped through a portal into somewhere else…
Know planes- feel like we’re on the same plane. Immediately inspired being in her presence.

Azana- I’ve located the last of my amulets. This one is going to be tougher- this one is gonna take you to a different world.
The last amulet has managed to be taken to a distant plane- as my champion.
Which plane?
It’s currently on the move so I’ll have to pinpoint it’s location at the time you are ready.
The current location is the Outlands- the crossroads of the Outer Planes.
I have a trusted guide that will help you with tracking it down.

Human 5’10” 160 lbs. blond hair, blue eyes
Wearing a noble’s outfit with a backpack
Ramirez
38 know planes (with 2 assists)
Concordiant Domain of the Outlands
Fulcrum of the outer planes
Hub of the great wheels
Borders all other out planes
Infernal, celestial, law, and chaos and true neutrality
Infinitely large with a great spire in the center
The heart- axel
Normal gravity
Normal time
Magic is effected depending upon where you are in the spire

Who has your amulet?
Extraplanar being?
Those of this plane stand out on the Outer Plane
It is using that as a means of detecting when I attempt to retrieve it
It is not who but what…
I’m not entirely sure how
A great dragon holds my amulet within its hoard
At any given moment- if wielded both at the same time- triangulate which direction you must go

36 + 2 = 38
Arcana – great dragon
Guess – an old dragon or older…
Old is deeper
400+ years old
Physical growth has stopped at this point
Outward signs of aging
Hone skills- magical abilities and minds

Did you see this dragon in a vision? What color was it?
Had unique markings over its body.
I could not tell you a specific color.
One head.
Metal mixed with rainbow colors.

How did this dragon get your amulet?
I am sure it was stolen.
When I first arrived on this continent- I was only aware of the first one you recovered.
I was only able to determine the second one with the first one.

When did you last have that amulet?
It was a while ago.

The amulets were brought here before I got to the continent.
Except for the one- but he was traveling with me and decided he didn’t need me anymore.

The Moment and The Reaction are found.
Seek The Retribution.

In my vision it was wearing it around one of it’s claws.
I saw only this creature in my vision- no other creatures around it.

She has chosen the path and it will serve them well.

Where do you hail from?
Distant lands- I’ve been traveling with Azana.
Noble woman in the eyes of my homeland.

We are seeking two relics to the east.

Set of four cat statues. Same material as the walls. Look like leopard sized.
Flew in- and then…
The statue splits revealing a horrible maw of teeth. It tried to bite me!
Arcane Knowledge – 30 – heard of stone like creatures such as gargoyles, nothing I’ve ever seen or heard of would have the statues.
Flew past a second one and then Garreth punched on- and got stuck. Then stuck to a second one.
Then a third one got stuck to Gerreth- Lynette

Searched the pedestal- made of the same material as the hallway, smooth to the touch, nothing else abnormal.

Finally got it tipped over and it shattered.
Finally detected some magic on the back wall. Got focused on it. Eventually we had Lynette put her holy symbol for her junior deity against it, and…
The wall slides back slightly and to the side, revealing a corridor.

Dragonlike creatures- lupine features. Jaw is elongated but its wings seems stunted.

Who are you and what are you doing here?

Just fighting some dragon monsters, like you do.

He is dressed in fullplate and he has weapons and armor aplenty.
Well, looks like trouble- he hit a lever and duck into some doors.

The force fields dissipated
Floating out a bulbous body with smaller eyes attached to wiggling stalks.
Four of them from the four portals/force fields

Xaxis is wearing the Helm of Comprehend Languages
Tharr carries the Tome of Worldly Memory

Parrish- checking with the adventurer’s guild ‘blip’ detected in Whisper.
There are no jobs available.
A couple of buildings over.
The Cartographer’s Shoppe
Kristoph
There hasn’t been a huge reason to map much out there. A couple of miles in any direction is where the farms drop off. I suspect there are some hunting paths out that way.
It’s mostly forest all the way to the coast to the west.
Paid 5 pp to get overlays of the hunting trail of existing map and gather information on unusual sittings.
He said to come back on the 1st of Fate

Codex search:
Lady Azana
It does not resolve- no information found.

Codex search:
Diamondheart:
RARE Stuff
Most recently wielded by an elf hunter named Elowin.
Against the Rotting Man.
A few powers to aid her when fighting a demon from the abyss.

Eris is from Trezna.
Versat.
Eris arrived in Suki from Ching and then traveled south to Inferno.

Fate 1st- cartographers to the mega map with notes.
I was able to come up with a really good map and I’ve designated some possible candidates where you were looking. If you follow these hunting trails you should be able to get there with no problems. I’ve designated locations where there are little camps which might be good contact places.
No reports of anything odd.
Once you clear the first couple of miles- it’s not odd but I would definitely expect more wild animals. Some of our hunters do seek them out. I’ve designated the areas with more areas with more dangerous game.
Parrish Game Map
We got a machete and headed out.

Made it to the edge of the farmlands. About to enter the dense woods.
Xaxis dropped of his horse at the closest farm- 2 weeks – 300 sp (s pp)
Headed through the dense woods- about thyme to find a place to stay. Found a hunter camp site. A couple of hunters there.
We managed to catch some of the smaller game- cooking.

+1400 for blueshine
+2000 mithril

Uneventful day 1. Found another hunting camp. This one is unoccupied. We stayed there the night.
Uneventful day 2. We did find an entrance to a cave. Decided to camp nearby- 30 minutes away- and setting up watches.

New watches.
1st watch – Tharr and Lynette – 31
2nd watch – Eris and Garreth – 43
3rd watch – Xaxis and Lynette – 48

To the cave.
Echoing and running water is heard.
Lynette cast light on herself.
Garreth stepped into a puddle that hit him back.
What seemed – slimy horror that moved and flowed like a giant protozoa.

Chain shirt 100 gp 4 4 -2 20% 30 ft. 20 ft. 25 lb.

Across the river slowly- 2 more slimes at the other side.
They kept playing around with a slime while some of us headed down the tunnel.
Highly polished oak door. Different looking stone around them. Beautiful brass fitting. Brass knocker- scimitar against a brass scroll.

I flew back since Lynette had yelled.
Then we all got to the room with the door. Garreth moved up and knocked the knocker.
Loud, sharp reverberation. The heavy oak door opens onto an octagonal area with 20’ ceiling. Ornate chandelier. Pedestal with a brass bowl. Holds about a gallon of water. Three arches around the portals- swirling mist.

Small octagonal room. Contents of bowl and portals all shine.
Flew up to the bowl. Intricately carved designs on the outside.
Kn arcana on the portal in front of me – 21 – Magical in nature and to appear to have at least two different effects in effect. It look like whatever magic that applies to them is two different effects.
Golden light streams from the mist- sturdy men with long black mustaches.
Steely eyed woman. Shimmering yellow turbans. Overcoats with geometric symbols. Ornate scimitars.
A fourth figure comes through the portal.
“You’ve invaded our sanctuary- our sacred resting place. Leave immediately or we will destroy you.
Bronzed people standing really close to the party.
Kn planes – 26 – Janni – the weakest of the jinni- formed of the four elements and therefore must spend most of their time on the material plane.
Typically prefer dessert or oases for their privacy.
I apologized and flew back out.
Eris also apologized and withdrew from their chamber as well.

They-
Scroll reads do not disturb.
One said to another- perhaps we should have written the warning in the common tongue…
Garreth asked, “Have you seen a guy with an amulet?”
We’ve not been disturbed for many of your years. I do not know who resides here. We helped build it and were promised we would not be disturbed.
Xaxis asked, “Who did you build it for? After you answer I will leave.”
She said: I do not remember his name or his purpose- but our payment was sound and that’s all I care about
X: Okay, we will go in peace
Xaxis left.

Midday
We hit her temple
Felt the building shake
Azana returned with the head priest carrying a box…
More celestial when she returns- everyone has a sense of inspiration.
Thank you- here’s some stuff.
I would like you, if you’re interested, to do another job for me. I want you to find another amulet for me.
Now I know where the other one is. I’m willing to pay adequately.
One of my bishops- he has gone rogue. He has decided he will no longer serve under me. Until recently he has hidden himself from my divination.
He has hidden himself in an underground lair far to the west of the island.
He is probably very well prepared.
The room he’s in looks to be built up- some of it is naturally occurring.

They are generally created by beings created by absolute evil.

Determine that it probably is located within an abandoned monastery found outside of Folly.
Jinn Monastery. Scattered ruins surrounded by dense forest.
+1 longbow. Perfectly calculate the distance to any target.
To adequately use it- mystical component- have some sort of innate psionic ability.

Figment Dragons
Not able to find out a whole lot about them.
References here and there about creatures that exist outside of our planes.
When they get bigger they occupy our plane on a similar regular basis.
So elusive- not even sure they exist- really not a good reason to hunt them.

New job: research Diamond Heart
60gp for the research.

Garreth privately asked for reaserch on Lady Aziana

Got up- heading to Parrish.
Day 1 of travel 27th:
Coming out of the trees are four big, brown bears….
Midday
Took ‘em out.
Made it to Parrish…

Arrived in Whisper mid-day.
Heading to the Zegaran Adventurer’s Guild
Assistant Guild Master
Getting the Ruby installed
No jobs available for us.
Asked about the RARE office in town
Probably be in this district…
How’s the mainland expansion going?
Pretty good- we’ve got a couple of locations set up in some of the southern towns. Been a process in getting the interest in the towns- more success on the coastal settlements. The further inland we go- we’ll have to prove ourselves.
I guess if we get the resources to make a run for Amawa and your group is available.
We found the RARE shop.
Gentleman behind the counter at a desk.
Yes- we just got some information in that we are looking to leverage.
232gp – Diamond Heart
-232gp
The diamond heart sword. Dark, oily, gleaming wood. The grain runs the length of the blade and vibrant and seems to be still leaving. Heals when damaged. Truly alive and never needs sharpening.
Lion’s Dagger & The Green Shield. Diamond heart. The blade is green and growing. Wielder is heir to the strength of growing things.
Prevailing theory of its location is the weapon has been passing from collector to collector. The latest owner was having it shipped to this location.
2315gp offered for it.
Divinity district is in the centre of ye olde town.
Lady Azana
They point us to one of the temples and describe the rough location and a symbol on the side of the temple. A starburst with wings.
We found the temple.
A priest of some sort with 3 or 4 dozen people sitting in the church.
Listened to the service.
Any chance we could speak to Azana…
You’ve returned! This is great news…

Noble John Hayward
I can appreciate that- here’s some stuff.
Dumbed some stuff on a table…

I’ve recently had some of my property fall into the wrong hands. I have a particular amulet that one of my followers has, uh, gotten killed and it was stolen by a SOB and taken to his fortress.
Roughly between here and Firefeather- about halfway off the road.
Recover the property and kill everyone in the fortress. Not human, does have special powers.
Based on who pulled of the attack on my follower- probably not humans.
It has my symbol on it.
Pointed it out on a map.
Don’t trust anything that he says- he will have a lot of defense.
Her motivation is for – don’t believe anything she has said has been a lie.

Loot:
900 gp
140 pp
Violet Garnet
Obsidian Statue (500 gp)

Heading three days east
The Codec did not register the DiamondHeart Sword
Checked with C&C – no experience storming the castle.
Third day- hadn’t reached the turn off. Set up camp.

Day of Uni 13th
Looking for the turn off
Eris Nilodian
Couple of hours down the road- winds up the path to the entrance of a fortress.
Couple hundred feet down the spiraling path.
Garreth walked up and knocked on the metal door.
Two individuals appear on the top of the wall and attacked Garreth.
Peculiar looking humanoid with pale gray skin, face berefit of expression, gangly limbs.
50 foot high walls.

Looked at them- nothing useful.
Cast fly on our artillery
Luckily, they opened the gate to attack us.
Rapiers and chainmail

3 nice rapiers and 3 chainshirts
1 nice rapier and chainshirt
2 light crossbows

Wracked my brain- finding the mechanism to open the door.
After beating on it for a while with the portable ram, they flew open.
Coming out is a hoard of
Thick, gray scaly skin. Monstrous in nature. Crude battle axes.

10 crude battleaxes

155gp ea. From Eris buying out the Undead Protection Item
Xaxis donated his share to the group loot.

Asking about the noble John Hayward
Point us to the Ashe district for public record- Hall of records, 4 or 5 scribes
One noticed us…
Yes, are you here to seek information from the records.
Almost all of the Nobles live in the Apex District- but without an invitation, you may not get in- guards at every entrance…
10 minutes he came back- according to our latest census, he lives at the Hayward Estate in the Apex District
Tipped him a gold for his trouble.
We wrote a letter to him, c/o the Zegaran Adventurer’s Guild, to make sure
Paid the delivery person 3 sp to deliver the message.
Hit the road…

Day 1 – 22nd
As we were leaving, I heard:
A very faint sound of a roaring lion coming from in the city:
Cast Locate Object- drove through town and to the docks- do not detect the item.
Bunch of people in the center of two said, I thought I heard a roar from the general direction of the docks…
We headed on…
Kept asking as we headed to the docks. We eventually found a particular Inn that the sounds were coming from…
Parked outside and headed into Lantern’s Rest
We headed in. The inside is empty of people except the bartender and a couple of tavern wenches- cleaning up a mess. We’re closed- there was a fight.
I kicked em out as soon as I could- one was taken over to the Temples to get healed. Some swordsman came in here asking to fight against the strongest warrior- this guy pulled out a weapon and it roared.
He had pretty nice armor- definitely not your typical rabble by any means. Looked possibly ceremonial. Looked nicer than it was practical. He was human. Looked like a lion on the armor.
About 30 minutes ago. Just the guy getting his ass kicked.
Could we get a small barrel of spirits…
Small Cask. 2 ½ gallons. Asked for 2. 1 gold 2 silver.
Xaxis got a bottle of nice wine as well.

Garreth asked around- went towards the center of town.
I followed him while the rest of the party scouted locations and made up fliers.

We gathered information as we went. Some reliable info- seemed to be heading towards the Flame District. Then we didn’t get anymore information.

We all met back at the guild about lunch time. The guards – and the Zegaran’s Adventurer’s Guild- use a training ground in the south part of the city. An OK place for a fight to take place.
We left a message at the guild to redirect them to training fields.
Send Cowain off with 2 gp for ear plugs.

A suspiciously nicely dressed swordsman.
What are your duel terms- first one to unconscious has lost.
To surrender or unconscious. No spells- just enchanted weapons & healing potions.
A crowd has gathered because of the challenge.
What is your name, friend?
Matsuo vs. Garreth
A deafening roar!

(1 gp 8sp change back)

Garreth knocked him down.
He was out- Garreth poured a potion in his mouth.
Well, sir – you have bested me and shown some honor.
The first person I challenged here in town dropped similar to how I fell…

Where’d you get a sword like that?
I received it as a gift from my lord after personally stopping an assassination attempt on the emperor’s life.
Well, um- good fight. I’m obviously outmatched.
We shared a drink.

We offered her sword and 2000gp against his sword.
I guess I should give up the fighter lifestyle if I cannot beat her.
He accepted…
And took down Eris.

So we sweetened the pot- Lynette- agreed to pay 5000 if she won.

Wow- you are NOT what I was expecting.
Here, take it- I quit.
We got the sword!

Went to the Zegara Adventurers Guild
We were hoping to get this sword appraised:
-100 gp
This is a very unique weapon but it is triggering as a plus 1 katana – I could give you 1500gp for it.

Over to RARE
It’s one of a kind
Their history has sort of added extra uniqueness to the item
Typically when we try to make that association- find the story and recreate the aspect behind it.
We sold it to them

+2530 gp
500 gp ea.
+30 gp to group loot

We are persuing another lead- but we need to get a little more info.
In a week or so we should be able to confirm the information.
We have an office in Whisper.
They may have different ones…
This is our main headquarters here…

Year End Celebration is happening tomorrow…
Salerius

The reanimated type of undead- including but not limited too- skeletons and zombies.
Distinguishing characteristics, strengths and weaknesses.

Zombies and skeletons typically require a body. Zombies, because of their rotting flesh, move slower and generally react with less ferocity. They shamble toward you or attack you and in rare cases they may shamble quickly. They’re not pleasant to look at. They don’t typically have any characfteristics of the creature that they come from – if the creature had the ability to phase between planes the zombie wouldn’t be able to. They typically do not react to weapon damage because they don’t feel anything. Slashing weapons are more effective against them.

Skeletons do not have rotting flesh and are not restricted by slow movement as zombies are. Because they have less mass they’re not nearly as hardy as zombies. Because it’s harder to actually hit anything, they’re susceptible to smashing and bludgeoning damage. They do not react to anything cold.

They represent your typical undead traits: no clear way to cause severe wounds to them because things that would kill a living creature do not affect the dead. There is no limit to how old the body for a skeleton can be as long as you have a mostly complete skeleton. Some amount of flesh must still exist to create a zombie.

Sold the two generic lots for 50gp total.

We have a:
Geography Lot – 2 misc bonus

Sigil Cont.

Draconic: Order of the Forked Path
Door is 8 feet tall.
Xaxis opened the door.
20 by 20 with runes on the floor.
Long hallway with a cloud in it. Further along there is a spiral starway.
Xaxis put on the Helm of Comprehend Languages- could not read the runes.
He did a spellcraft check on them.
My detect magic was still active- I stared at the runes.
16 different magical auras.
The most potent is: Moderate.
16 identical auras on each of the auras on the floor.
Did a spellcraft check to determine the school…
Evocation. All evocation.

Door seems to be shimmering and starting to disappear.
Four cracklings lighting with rumbles of thunder. About four feet tall.
I attempted to chop the one in front of me but I’m not sure if it made any difference.
Weird critters were shocking us and then a booming noise.
Got hit by lightning and thunder. Managed to chop one to death and then flew up into the corner.

Flew down the spiral stairway.
Large room- brown rune, green rune, blue rune, red rune, with yellow in the middle.

Mass of humanoid flame- living inferno, dance of heat and flame
Amorphous two eyes and a mouth- a trick of the swirling air
Walking hill- club like hands of jagged stone, two featureless legs
Vortex of water rolls across the ground- never seems to crest or lose their shape. Humanoid shape- pounds with the force of an ocean storm.

Beams shot from all four- a giant figure appears in the center. Looks like a combination of all four.
I backed up, brought up my protection, and cast light of venya.
Lynette managed to kill the fire critter.

Killed the last little one and the big one disappeared.
She went down the steps and I flew down after Eris.
I cast Bear’s Endurance on her then Bull’s Strength.

Garreth pulled the lever…
The door opened.
Three magic circles, a couple of tables, and a chest at the end.
Skeletal creature- hateful crimson lights in its eye sockets- wearing magical robes. Three of them.
Most everyone but me were paralyzed with fear.
I brought back Xaxis who popped two of them. Then I resurganced Lynette who took some shots at the third one.
Garreth and Eris braced the third one as I managed to hit it with one of my light’s of venyas.
We figured they were a variant of the mummy type of undead. Some inconsistencies, but…

Search the monster for loot- detected a sigil on it. Grab the sigil.
Violet Garnet on table- grabbed it.
Chest –
Pile of coins (800 gold)
Anklet (250 gp)
Harp (250 gp)
Amulet * (Leather thong strung with dragon teeth- warm fang amulet- ability to overcome damage reduction) (750 gp)
Lynette –
Closet
Painting (500 gp)
Crystal * (Bright crystal – crystal of life keeping – wards against necromantic and death effect. Lesser – +3 against energy drain, inflict spells, death spells, death effects.) Greater is a plus 5 and may choose to reroll. (5000 greater) (Sell – 500) (Lesser – 950 gp)
Lynette grabbed to two sigils from the two piles of ash
I checked two tables:
Aquamarine armband (250 gp)
Lot of Geography
Lot of History
6 lots of other books
-200 gp for the IDs
800 – 200 + 250 + 250 + 750 + 500 + 250
2600 gp total – 520 gp ea.

We headed out and back to town.
Early afternoon.
Guild master recommended to speak to RARE directly about it.
Place is dusty inside.
Guy with spectacle looks up from the book he was reading.
Yes, we did…
No, you could turn them in.
Is this what you were looking for?
Yes- do you have all three…
Yes.
He’s knocking on the door behind him.
We got a group here that’s got the sigils.
Yes, excellent!
Could you write up a letter?
Let’s talk about payment.
We set aside this as payment for it- they’ve already taken their cut…

Wand of See Invis – 10 charges on it
Amber
Pile of 180 pp

You know, we might have some opportunities for a set number of individuals like yourself.
We follow a model here- we made an exception for the sigils so we wanted to branch out our efforts here.
What we do here is research some rare relics, artifacts, and the like. Sell information to interested parties.
If you recover the objects- buy them back at a premium.
Cost for the information- we will tell you how much we will pay for it.
Not interested in a map or directions to where we got it…

Recovery of Two Weapons of Unique Nature
Shishi-o – information on this for 253 gp and we will pay you 10 times that for recovery of it.
The Simple Bow – 237 gp and will pay 10 times that for it’s recovery.
We got the letter for them.

Wand of See Invis – 10 charges
Amber
180 pp -49 pp = 131pp == 26pp 2 gp ea.

We pay 49 pp for the information on the two items.
Shishi-O – The sword of Lions
Marvelous katana with a blade of bright, immaculate – male lions circling the blade.
Blade is drawn- mighty roar heard for a quarter of a mile.
Location was lost but there are current rumors- wielded somewhere on the north island.

Simple Bow – wooden longbow
World’s greatest archer…
Current location: Maio and the Bow – spent his last days somewhere on Zagara.

With the info in hand we headed back to the guild to liquidate.
Wand & Amber – 600gp

Pull for C&C
100 gp from Xaxis
9 plat 6 gp from Garreth
3 plat from Lynette
100 gp from Eris
1 amethyst from Tharr
