    Last night, citizens gathered in the throne room as requested by Queen Dawn to witness a momentous occasion.

    I have asked you here this evening to witness something of great importance. As many have heard... our dear Friend, Sherry... has found something we think is of great importance. As you can see, there has been quite a bit of excavation behind the throne. In times past, Words of Magic were used to open a magical door behind the throne. I did not want to take a chance, since many know these words, of what we seek falling into the wrong hands. I went with my instincts, and thought it best if I excavated the hole.

    And have one of my trusted workers to go inside and retrieve the object. If you will, please.

    The Queen gestured to a member of the audience, a construction worker, who despite a few inebriated stumbles, pulled himself onstage and accepted a communication crystal from the Queen before lowering himself into the hole.

    Ahem. Is this working, m'lady? Wait..I supose there is no way you can talk back to me. Well then... It is quite dark in here. Pitch dark past the lantern's glow. Lot of cobwebs everywhere! I know few lasses who would never step in this mess! Err right, I don't suppose you are interested in that.

    Aha, what is this!

    There is another source of light....

    Ahh! *gasps* It is beautiful....

    ... Right.


    At this point, it was several minutes before anything more was heard from the worker, and many feared the worst as naught but silence came through the communication crystal.

    Then, at last he emerged. He discreetly handed the find to Queen Dawn.

    What was this item? What was its function? Its purpose? Its origins? Why was it so magnificent a find? Queen Dawn offered no insight but cryptically announced she would put the crystal on display.

    I shall have a display made at once. So that you the citizens of the realm can look upon it. Thank you for your bravery, Sir.

    As a reward for his service, the Queen offered for the construction worker to put his drinks on Elias's tab. After the Queen returned to the inner chambers of the palace, citizens followed the construction worker to the Cats Eye tavern in an attempt to winkle out more information about the mysterious find.

    Though the information they learned was perhaps not information they had intended to uncover.

    They did, however, learn that the construction worker's name was Andrew; to which some of the patrons shivered. Many will recall that Andrew was also the name of the personal servant of the Shadowlords who was introduced during the reign of Casca. An unfortunate coincidence.

    Citizens, the crystal excavated by Queen Dawn and Andrew the Construction Worker can now be seen at the royal palace.

    I realize that's the castle but, it doesn't look secure/safe there.

    The Bard is eyeing it lustfully; of course it's not safe.
