The Road More or Less Traveled
A simple fake eye made of mithril and imbued with some minor enchantments. The major use of the eye, however, is as the keyed item needed to open the portal to the underdark underneath the cities of Brightstone, Contore, Murann, and Athkatla. Originally the portals were created by the the wizard Nolzur to allow trade between the drow city of Multum. The drow, however, proved to greedy, and the wizard Nolzur flooded the city by opening a portal to the elemental plane of water and sealing off the portals with a key. Over each portals is inscribed the phrase “only the gaze of the gatemaster can forgive their treachery.” This is a well known clue that the false eye of the one eyed Nolzur is needed to reactivate the portals again. The portal to the plane of water has long since decayed, as was Nolzur’s design, but no-one knows what’s in the flooded city of Multum.
