30 Bardic Tales    Items  (Art and Music)   (Non-Magical)

A collection of 30 bardic tales you may hear sung in the local tavern or empresses' court, complete with bardic verse excerpts from all 30 tales themselves.

Trinket of the Mariner's Son    Items  (Art and Music)   (Non-Magical)

Remember this, even if you don't see me for a while and want to hate me, I love you.
