Quest Items




Name Description

Teleport Nodule

Beleazar gave you this small device to attach to the 'cage' that holds the nychthemeron. He promises that it will teleport the nychthemeron to a place of his choosing, but it will not work on anything else

Procreative Surge Turbine

This is a heavy metallic cylinder bristing with tubes and wires. Warm, smoky light pulses from within. It appears to be an energy transfer device, tuned for a very specific purpose.

Metallic Eye

This metallic, flower-like device consist of a short metal stalk with mechanical eye at the end. It was given to you be Salimeri and can apprently be used as a key to enter the Anechoic Lazaret, a large golden structure in the Reef of Fallen Worlds.

Nychthemeron Brain

This fusion biological and mechanical parts apparently comprises the brain of a mychthemeron, its shape as alien as the creature itself, it was damage somewhat during your fight with the creature - not to mention your grisly attempt to excise it from the body - but it seems to be mostly intact.

A Study in Datasphere Analysis

This leather-bound journal is filled with various diagrams, notes and observations of the machines you found near the engines buried beneath Sagus Cliffs. The handwriting is your creator's, and it chronicles his analysis of the datasphere - the net of information that surrounds and permeates the world's air. Some people have drawn power from the world, and others have found a way to transmit knowledge in the blink an eye. It seems that these machines may have been intended to transmit consciouness itself... or at least to take a rudimentary first step in that direction. The exact ste[s are unclear, though someone with an extensive background in consciousness transfer or machine intelligences might be able to recreate his work.

Bronze Sphere

This is a fist-sized bronze sphere that you removed from a transdimensional space inside your head. Its surface is covered interlocking spirals.

The Tome of Singing Thorns

The pages of this ancient, heavy book rustle as if waiting to be turned. A castoff tattoo is inscribed onto the title page. Someone has attached much newer tag to the binding which reads; "Exclusive Property of Falinda and Steristi, Booksellers".

Certificate of Indemnity

This Certificate is singed and sealed by the City of Sagus. It attest the willingness of the City to assume the debts Erritis incurred in his airship crash. This should be sufficient to resolve the disputre between him and Rennio.

Chronal Transference Device

This is a blinking assembly of synth and metal parts, cobbled together from spare components of the machines that creates the levies of Sagus Cliff. The device should transfer a single year of life from a human to his or her respective levy... assuming both parties are willing.

Antique Hair Clip

This small, ornamental comb is actually a living, jeweled insect - a biomechancal marvel. The pincers seek to fasten themselves upon locks of hair, and its wing allow it to hover around the wearer's head, creating unique styles that would otherwise be impossible.

Interdimensional Puzzle Box

This is a small metallic cube, recovered from the ruins of a collapsed house in Cliff's Edge, It is etched with tiny symbols, but the means of opening the box is not obvious from a cursory visual inspection.

Phoenix's Note

This ragged synth square is engraved with scrawls and symbols - presumably some kind of writing, but it is mostly unfamiliar to you, Phoenix says the note told him to come to the Valley of Dead Heroes and that he would find the answers he needs. He gave it to you because he has found no answer, but he has not so far. He hopes you will find them in his place. 

Although the engraved symbols are mostly incomprehensible, four numbers are written in the Truth, one on each line of text: 1, 5, 3, and 5.

The Face That Never Remembered

A face sculpted from a soft grey material gazez through and beyond you from ashen sockets. The mask affixes to your face with an almost lifelike eagerness. It is clammy moist to the touch. Viewed through its lens, the world takes on a nightmarish aspect. Once-mundance objects twitch with strange new angles. Familiar face, those of your most trusted friends and companions, contort in ways they never should. In the corners of your eyes, misshapen monstrosities lurch and stagger across impossible landscapes. The effects are subtle are at first, but the longer you wear the mask, the more horrifying the visions. What enlightenment, or madness, awaits one with the courage to wear it for long enough?

Scrawled Note

This note was in Motley's pocket. The ink is brown and cracked and might be blood.

Most of its illegible, scratched in a hasty scawl, but you can make out four numbers at the bottom: 5143.

Waits-for-prey's Head

This head once belonged to the deadly combat construct that called itself Wait-for-prey. Now it's yours. That is, it belongs to you, but it's not actually part of your body.

Mesmeric Handle

You found this object inside a ruptured Bloom-cyst. It is made of azure steel and resembles the hilt of a small knife, but the blade is missing.

Black Metal Frame

This metal framce is about as tall as a human, and perhaps twice as wide. Rivets hide cleverly constructed joints, and the entire structure can collapse to the size of your forearm.

Artaglio's Standard

This battle standard is torn and ragged. It depicts a silver stein on an azure field, with a bar of three downward-facing triangles above and below.

Broken Lascar Helm

The encrusted filth of the Bloom covers this helm's surfaces, inside and out. It looks like it would fit a human head, but the technology that created the helm is far beyond the capabilities of anyone in the Ninth World. Lights flicker from inside, and the helm intermittently broadcasts short bursts of speech in a female voice.

Obervich's Eye

Obervich plucked this eye from the multitude of eyes on his head and gave it to you so that you might restore sight to Skoura. He promises it will work simple by placing it on her face. The artificial eye is so well-constructed that it could pass as a real eye on cursory inspection.

Jar of Iron Wind

Made from opaque, battered metal, this jar looks like a repurposed cylinder. Just above its surface, a control panel is projected into the air, displaying enigmatic diagrams and text that indicate that status of its contents. The jar thrums with energy, seeming almost alive. According to Skoura, the nano who gave you this jar, it contains a small part of the Iron Wind - dangerous nano - spirits that warp and transform any matter they touch.

Tybir's Ring

The ring is plain and tarnished. Tybir rubs it with his thumb constantly, spinning it around his finger.

Transdimensional Power Source

This cylinder was one of ten that once fueled the crashed catena in the Bloom. It appears to tap into the power of collapsing singularities. It is a rare source of energy. It is rare source of energy, and only a few special devices would benefits from its unique properties.

Navigational Cortex

You retrieved this tiny, metal-and-synth sphere from inside a large device. It is the navigational cortex of the lascar's anchorage, containing records of unnumerable worlds and maps of the travel routes between them. You can see infinitesimally small patterns traced along its surface, with miniscule lights racing along and through those patterns.

Magmatic Annulet

This crystalline circlet is as black as the sky behind the stars. It twist and curls in eye-bending patterns, emanating power as if absorbing and snaring realities of the world.

Synth Egg

This egg-shaped object is made of pearly white synth. The moment you touch it, a lively tune begins to play in your mind, and the egg adheres to your hands, preventing you from accidentally dropping it.

Sealant Spray

This device is capable of spraying a powerful sealant material that could permanently close a medium-sized aperture or hole. It is too delicate for usage in combat. You scavenged the device from a large metal suit you found in the Gullet.

Sealant Bomb

This small metal orb contains a reservoir of sticky sealant material. It is too delicate for use in combat, but you could rig the orb to burst open permanently cover and seal a hole.

      Hi, I have the Procreative Surge Turbine still in my inventory upon reaching the castoff sanctuary. I'm worried the Quest Item slots may become clogged seeing as there is no scroll bar for that section of the inventory nor can you discard quest items.
