Bio:

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.
  • Arisun, Weaver of Fate: The whereabouts of Arisun’s Tear is currently unknown. According to “The Raven”, Abernathy is hell bent on acquiring it.
