In-game description[edit | edit source]

The pitch:

Items in italics are quoted directly from the game.
In the Court of Bowing Ashes stands a towering adra statue intertwined with living trees. Dating back to the Engwithans, it is believed to represent an orlan ruler of that lost empire.

Though the natural progress of time has done some damage to it, the Glanfathans remember one act of vandalism against it from the early colonial days. During the chaos of the Broken Stone War, Aedyre explorers ventured deep into Eir Glanfath, made their way to the Court of Bowing Ashes, and scaled the statue to break loose a single eye, large as an aumaua's head and made of pure adra ban. Most of the members of that band were captured and killed by the Glanfathans, but the eye was never recovered.

In recent years, rumors have spread through the Eastern Reach that a new "owner" of the eye has been attempting to sell it through covert markets. The anamfatha of at least three tribes would reward anyone who recovered it.

The conclusion:

It took extensive searching and inquiry across three countries, but [Companion Name] eventually picked up the trail of the stolen adra ban eye. Following the Broken Stone War, the aumaua thief traveled south to Abet, then on to Naasitaq. Among the boreal dwarves, the thief found a wealthy buyer, the chief of a prosperous tribe. A generation later, the tribe fell on hard times and was raided both by Deadfire Archipelago pirates and pale elves from the White that Wends. The pale elves sold the stolen eye to merchants from Old Vailia, who took it north to the prince of Darcozzi. It remained there for two generations.

When Darcozzi palace was sacked, one of the invading soldiers took the eye as a prize, carrying it across the sea to Ozia in the Vailian Republics. It was still there when [Companion Name] arrived. Though the wealthy patriarch who owned the eye commanded a hefty sum, the Glanfathan anamfatha did not hesitate to pay the price.
