A large, tetrahedral ruby with a spark of elemental chaos glimmering within. When the gem is shattered, the spark blossoms into a raging bonfire bound to the summoner's will. He or she had better have nerves of steel or their affairs in order.
Because of the inherent risk in this type of summoning, church and authorities frown on it as a matter of principle. Thus, these gems tend to belong to those who lack scruples or already have secrets to keep. What's one more?
Lantern of Revelation
Lantern of a golden alloy emblazoned with the symbol of Sight-Fire Ain: A stylized eye with a flame in place of its pupil. Reveals otherwise invisible things within its light. It is broken, but needs only new glass and new oil to function again.
The Sight-Fire is the eye that cast its own light and pierces all darkness. In life, Ain is said to have been so astute they could recognize a foe's smallest weakness, shoot an arrow accurately as far as the wind could carry it, and notice the entirely unseen. Most mortal eyes remain clouded, but Ain's blessing grants them light to see by.
Lord Baehr's Wedding Ring
A wedding band found in the sewers of Livest, engraved with the date of Micah and Miriana's arrival in the city. Its owner seemed haggard, and his maid Maja claims the fault lies with his wife, who is called a witch.
Cameo of a red rose on white background, found in the basilisk's lair. Its border is engraved with a quote from an epic poem relating in allegory the tale of Lolth, whose betrayal led to the exile of the drow, and Corellon Larethian, first and last god-hero of the elves. Even today, particularly conservative elves irritated by the young human church claim the only god worth honoring is dead.
A pair of bone dice, one sporting pictograms of a person in different postures in place of numbers and the other of an ox. The sixth face of each is blank, and arranged together the pictograms seem to imply scenes and perhaps a narrative, if only the right order were known. As games are valuable tools of teaching, it is not uncommon for morals or parables to be encoded into them - but gambling is a vice of the lower classes, so what value could this message possibly have?
Golden coin showing the counterfeit of an ancient, unknown ruler. The lettering has long been worn away, and the ruler's features are unrecognizable. Though its place and time of origin are unclear, shrouded by the scarcity of historical records prior to the age of the celestial gods, anyone who touches it understands with unshakable certainty that this is the very first coin ever minted by humanity.
A war hammer of black iron and light wood, long enough to be wielded in one hand or both. The head is slender but heavy, a spike on one end and a striking surface tapered to five sturdy points on the other. A band of brass around either end of the head is the only decoration save an inscription in the haft, which reads "The Ringing One".
It is impeccably balanced, and will sometimes ring like a giant bell and rock in the wielder's hands as it strikes with massive force.
