The Tear of Trigu

By:

"I’ve nearly found it! The fabled Tear is almost within my grasp. Tomorrow I will finish my trek across this barren wasteland…" ~Fragmented page of a journal found in the Blasted Lands

Full Item Description
A magnificent, rainbow-coloured, multifaceted gem just small enough to fit within both of your hands. It radiates an aura of power, yet peaceful action also seems appropriate around this artifact.

History
When L’ruhk, the Prince of Darkness, fell from grace and was annihilated down to all but the smallest piece of his existence, the Lord Creator Trigu shed a single tear of holiest purity. This tear fell to the ground in what is now the Blasted Lands, and the essence of purity that lay within it cleaned away the taint of Nether Energy that suffused the very air of that place, sanctifying and purifying the land itself.

Tears are legendary for their potency, with the tears of a mythical beast often capable of amazing feats of healing. How much more so with the Tear of the Creator? Thus, it should be no surprise that Creation itself rose up, molding and crafting the sacred ground around the Tear to offer protection from the world without.

And so the Tear sits to this day, protected by Creation herself. Woe be to the one who dares try to leave with it.

Pearl Spider Economics

       By: Murometz

These rare, fist-sized spiders do not make webs, but rather excrete secretions which harden upon contact with air. These "droppings" resemble barley-sized spider eggs, or even lustrous pearls, once the slime coating them, dries up. In fact, dried Pearl Spider "drops" are indistinguishable from the marine varieties produced by mollusks, and hence of identical value on the open market!

Several centuries ago, they were studied by naturalists, and several observations were made. Firstly, was that these spiders "lay" these pearls for no apparent or discernible "natural" reason, and secondly, the naturalists had discovered that the more these spiders ate or were fed--and they were true omnivores--the larger the spider pearls came out.

A cottage industry began. Enterprising merchants hunted and collected these creatures across the lands, erecting spider-farms for the manufacture of Spider Pearls. It wasn't long before someone got the idea to force-feed the spiders, ala foie gras geese, and soon, the fattened spiders began pooping out pearls of great size! (relatively speaking). The regular pearl market came to disarray, and prices and value fluctuated wildly.
