Ioun created three of these powerful artifacts and gave them to his three most renown prophets:
- Estered: Estered’s Tear became the religious artifact that Ioun’s temple in Wellspring was founded upon. It was captured by Abernathy’s agents and corrupted during an attempt to open a permanent portal from the Far Realms into Tellyr. It was destroyed when the party interrupted the final ritual and flung the corrupted artifact into the Far Realm itself.
- Tatzram, Keeper of the Knowledge: Tatzram’s Tear was uncovered centuries ago by Larae Starflower. She hid it within the ageless construct Charlie Alpha Three Niner who held it within his warforged body for years. Using a powerful ritual, Larae reincarnated herself into a half-Eladrin/half Construct body. Larae currently possesses the artifact.
