Eye of the Mindless Servant

By:

A monocle lens made out of enchanted glass that allows the wearer to see through the eyes of golems and statues marked by the wearer.

Lore

The Eye of the Mindless Servant was created specially for a talented sculptor.

The Artisan used the lens as not only a bit of artistic flair to set himself apart, but also for a secret purpose. The Artisan used it to see through the eyes of golems he had crafted, passing them off as the beautiful statues they were and using that front to spy on the noble estates both in his home city and abroad, even on the King in his own gardens where many secrets were exchanged.


Description

A simple monocle made up of gold and amber tinted glass. The frame shaped to fit the owner precisely.

Properties

The Eye, as it is widely now known, helped in one's concentration, seeming to allow one to focus far more easily. It's other, more notable quality was that it permitted the wearer to see through the eyes of golems that the maker had crafted at will.

Uses

Monuments Great and Small - Such as fountains, gargoyles, statues, and colossi.

The item itself is just kind of there, but the concept of a sculptor using his art to spy on his wealthy and noble patrons is fantastic. It could even be used as a Xanatos Gambit, where the statue is made, with the intent of being stolen, so that the commissioner could easily spy on those who stole it, through such a magic item.

Well done.

Castoria, Land of Shattered Stars

       By: Veretrix

Castoria was once a thriving and prosperous nation, a rich trade center for the surrounding lands. This all changed when, on one fateful night nearly a century ago, the Mist of Eternity rolled in and surrounded the land, obscuring more of the outside world as days and nights passed.

By the time the Mist blocked out the sun, a new light shone during what was assumed to be daytime: The Starpoint Spire, a mysterious place atop Castoria's highest peak in the northern-central region. Some say that there is some sort of building atop the mountain shining the dim "sunlight" onto the land, but it is only ever too bright or too dark to fully make out any structure, not to mention the mountain's immense height.

Not a month after the Spire's light lit up, the stars fell. Flaming rocks and debris from far-flung edges of space plummeted downward onto the eastern region of Castoria. Once the shower subsided, a strange energy from within the fallen stars transformed the eastern lands in what are now known as The Voidwastes, a barren gray land littered with craters and strange alien creatures (these can vary, but I had Pathfinder's Akatas in mind).

To the south, strange mechanism of eldritch origin are again at work after aeons of rest in the Ruins of Kchuthngnl, an ancient city of non-human creation that is estimated by scholars to be no less that five millennia old.

To the west, the once peaceful and serene forest, now known as The Plagued Woods, has been experiencing corruptions of the wildlife and humanoids living there. Some humans have reported creatures that appear not unlike a halfling, except that they can open their mouths to massive proportions to swallow creatures the size of an ogre.

When adventurers and citizens alike try to make an escape from Castoria, they are never seen again, and it is utterly unknown whether they found hopeful sanctuary or agonizing death withing the Mist's depths.

What is unknown to all residents of Castoria is that all of these events occurred because of the actions of a secret but powerful cult loyal to the Elder Gods who call the space between the planes their abhorrent home. The cult still lives on, larger than ever, and their plan is for the alien horrors to incubate and thrive within the dome of mist that now envelops Castoria, so that when the Elder Gods return as the cult's prophecy foretells, they will have an army of blasphemous creation at their disposal that they will use to make war with and enslave the denizens of the Material Plane.
