Known artifacts

  • Helring 6 feet long sword, initially buried near Owlsthorpe, then relocated to the halls of Fandrelion. It is protected by Nanok, another artifact whose sole goal is to make Helring undetectable, and prevent the corruption of anyone touching it.
    3 places were known for potentially destroying it:
    Steel Hill, Rappen Athuk, Pelur Keep
    The sword was ultimately destroyed in Pelur Keep on the plane of Hell (or a plane similarly hot)
    When the sword got destroyed, Orcus appeared and marked Hubert Fiorentini so all Orcus’ followers would hunt him.


Found clues of orcus in the following places:

  • Fort in the woods near Durbensforde (now run by Hubert Fiorentini)
  • Dyers Ham near Durbensforde. The Laird advisor was an Orcus worshipper
  • Children slaying house with the portal in Durbensforde
