More on the Building near Shard

(Shard, Ilithi: 190 Uthmor 356)

"You wouldn’t happen to carry any of those peach wine they have in Laini’s, would ya, Bareesh?", Tengur says as he approaches the bar.

"Now, I couldn’t help but overheard ya conversation with Leriah, and lemme tell ya, it’s a pretty unsettling place, that marble building…"

"Well, I heard the talk of a new building near Shard, and, being the curious mage that I am, I set out to see this place for myself…" Tengur continues, "now there’s a unusal place right there! The sight I held before me was pretty much the same as what you heard, but I noticed that Leriah did not mention the glass case located in the Foyer."

"The case itself wasn’t unusual, but what it held inside…what it held inside is another matter entirly." Tengur says quietly as he takes a sip of his drink.

"Behind the haze of the panes, a fully intact Gor’tog skeleton stares outwards. Tight silver wire binds its joints and keeps it upright in its eternal poise. A softly pulsating chunk of cambrinth rests within its rib cage, lending an odd glow to the area within the case."

"What do you make of that, Bareesh?"

As he finishes his drink, Tengur says to Bareesh, "I hope that little piece of information can help some of your patrons here, but I sure can’t make heads nor tails of it…"

Having said that, Tengur pushes himself away from the bar and walks into the darkness of the night.  


Baresh started working at the Wren’s Nest when it first opened in 349AL. He’s been hearing the news and pouring drinks ever since then.
