The Orbs of Kalid-Ma
Current Concordance: N/A
- A heavily armoured Dray with ragged wings and glowing green eyes screams orders on a battlefield. Hundreds of undead pour past him to meet an army of mortals. The Dray holds his hand out, clutching a pale green orb which emits a beam of energy.
- A large mass of green water, more water than you’ve ever seen in your life. From the water sits a mountainous island. At the top is a small shrine which contains a blue orb. Around the shrine are what appear to be humanoids, though you notice some have horns, or animal ears, scales or goats legs.
- An undead being is sitting in a dusty throne holding a staff in one hand and is playing with a purple orb in the other. On it’s crown is a black diamond.
- A powerful-looking man with glowing orange eyes. In his staff was an orange orb. As you see his image, he turns to look at you and snarls, his face resembling a tiger. He sees you. In retrospect, this man was Hamanu.
Calder forgot about it a month. By the time he remembered, the Orb was gone.

The Eye of Abalach-Re
This was once a regular gem (if the word ‘regular’ could be used to describe a black Opal the size of a Crodlu egg) that Sorcerer-Queen Abalach-Re infused with copious amounts of defiling magic, around 100 years ago. She ordered slaves to build a temple somewhere in the Great Alluvial Sand Wastes to house the Eye.
She then let slip rumours that the Eye would allow her to ascend to dragonhood, in the hope that the Dragon of Tyr would retaliate. While the rumour was technically true, the Eye’s key feature was that it was specifically designed to absorb the Dragon’s power.
But the Dragon was not fooled. He flew to the temple, destroyed it, killed the Templars guarding it and the buried everything in the sands, the temple and Eye lost to all.
