    d6 The Lost High Tomb of Vezzenvazzel Ahmaquissar

    The Lost High Tomb of Vezzenvazzel Ahmaquissar


    Deep in a forgotten vale of The High Forest, stands a hidden sylvan glade of such otherworldly beauty that myth has replaced reality. A place guarded and enjoyed by Fey creatures of every kind and race. An ancient Crossroad of faerie-folk. And at the center stood a tall Feymound, ringed in a crown on Moonflowers, Snapdragons and Gords of all shapes and sizes. From butternut squash, to Pumpkins, to silver-bright zucchini. A 300 foot waterfall danced behind the view of the ancient faerie mound, and splashed the grotto with waters both magical and mundane. The mystical pool at its foot was deep and uncharted, hosting plants and animals never seen in Faerun. A Crossroads built by the elves of forgotten times, and protected by the powerful Fey of the Plane of Faerie.

    Towards the base of the Feymound, below the crown of beautiful vegetation was a ring of tamed wild grass, well beaten and well used by the Fey for ceremony and dancing and revelry. The entire sylvan glade was encompassed by ancient elder trees and bramble for hundreds of miles in all directions. This section of The Lost Peaks was almost entirely forgotten by all the races of Faerun beside a few elves that are old enough to remember the old stories. The old stories of Aryvandaar.

    The Heart of ancient Aryvandaar was a wildly magical place, and The Dancing Falls was as hidden as a forgotten place can be. Most creatures that come close to the hidden falls were defeated miles away by the sheer natural hardship of traversing the terrain, and others who delved deeper are thwarted by magical means of illusion and deception that still hold the mighty power of the elves High Magic.

    Those who manage to get past the ancient spells of warding that the elves had placed over Twenty Thousand years ago, meet the more recent spells and resistance of the current Fey protectors. Those few who manage to directly transport into the glade using the Crossroad or Feymound at its center, are immediately confronted with the Masters of The Glade.

    Also known as The Lords of The Dancing Falls, these powerful Fey creatures are the wardens of the ancient elven glade since the fall of High Aryvandaar. They protect the Dancing Falls with their lives due to a pact among the elves and fey over Ten Thousand years ago. This wonder-filled vale, known to only a very few elven scholars as The Lost High Tomb of Vezzenvazzel Ahmaquissar. is considered among contemporary elves to be nothing more than a legend.

    Yet behind the raging curtain of the majestic waterfall lies a secretive tomb, over Fifteen Thousand years old, that holds power beyond an epic scale. A tomb constructed by House Ahmaquissar in the early days of ancient High Aryvandaar. A tomb in the name of Erevan Ilesere. The Lost High Tomb of Vezzenvazzel Ahmaquissar.

    As the first Patron of House Ahmaquissar during the First Flowering of the elves of Sharlarion to acknowledge the threat of a "Shadow Foe" that threatened all the elven people of Aryvandaar, Vezzenvazzel Ahmaquissar created The Shadow Stone of House Ahmaquissar to combat those future elven problems. The Selu'Kiira is rife with many, many ways to hinder, thwart or slay an opponent.

    Vezzenvazzel Ahmaquissar created many things of beauty and power. Not just epic swords and armor, but boots and cloaks and gloves and gems of magic interwoven together. He divulged the secrets of Shadow Magic into the Selu'Kiira of House Ahmaquissar in hopes that one day in the distant future it will be taken and used by a worthy House member.

    As of 1378 the Tomb of Vezzenvazzel Ahmaquissar hasn't been plundered yet. The magic of the Waterfalls and the Feymound and The Crossroads turn away most foolish adventurers and deny others. Powerful Fey Lords and Ladies own the glade as by tradition of an ancient pact.

    Vezzenvazzel Ahmaquissar:CN Baelnorn lich, Male moon elf of The Sorrowwood. CR 47; Rogue 5/ Beguiler 20/ Cleric 20 of Erevan Ilesere. Guardian of the Ahmaquissar crypt and self-imposed undead hero of the ancient clan. Even Amlaruil Moonflower, the Queen of Evermeet herself couldn't break these powerful binding wards as ancient as they are.

    Pretty much on par with Larloch as far as power, but devoted to clan and house. Consecrated to haunt the crypts of House Ahmaquissar until the Chosen comes to bear. That is the old Ahmaquissar lore. The Moon elven Baelnorn lich sat in his Fey guarded tomb waiting for an elf with the right bloodline or dogma to awaken him. Both have forgotten the old moon elf Mystic Theurge and considered the stories to be nothing more than myth.

    Myth has it that only a blood relative can open the Selu'Kiira. Others who have tried have found madness and insanity. Others say it's just a story for younglings.




    Some of the items in the crypt are as follows;

    The Selu'Kiira N'Rilan'Vae; The High Lore Shadow Gem of House Ahmaquissar: Major Artifact

    History-
    This dark blue gem was created by Vezzenvazzel Ahmaquissar, the founder of House Ahmaquissar before the Crown Wars, shortly after the founding of the ancient elven city of Sharlarion, about -24,000 DR. The gem contains a plethora of powerful, archaic elven High Magic spells, both divine and arcane that have not been seen or cast in over 5,000 years. But its most powerful attribute is the ancient knowledge it contains. It can impart to the wearer the knowledge of the ancient elven art of shadow lore, taught to Vezzenvazzel by Erevan Ilesere himself. It holds the knowledge on how to become a Shadowdancer, a Shadowlord, a Shadowblade, a Shadowtrick Priest and a Shadowmage, as well as the rituals involved on how to transform elves into Shadow-Walkers and Shades in the name of Erevan Ilesere thousands of years before humans discovered those rituals. It grants the wearer the full history of House Ahmaquissar, and its devotion to the Trickster god himself. And finally, it also confers the knowledge on how to become a elven High-Mage, and elven High-Hierophant at the cost of 10,000 XP per class. The gem itself is a remarkably smooth jewel made of a dark blue crystal found in meteorites that rarely fall to Toril, and cut and shaped in the likeness of an asymmetrical star burst, the symbol of Erevan Ilesere.

    Anyone trying to use this Selu'Kiira that is not blood related to house Ahmaquissar must make a saving throw against the high lore gem. Fort (DC35) Ref (DC35) Will (DC35) or instantly be disintegrated with no chance of Resurrection. Failure of any of the saves results in death.

    Blood relatives of house Ahmaquissar that wield the shadow gem will receive the following attributes and powers regardless of class or level.

    *Those who wield the high lore gem gain a continuous effect of several Ioun stones while it is worn upon the brow.

    * Deep red stone
    * Incandescent blue
    * Pink
    * Pink and green

    * Elven High Magic: This high lore gem contains three elven high magic spells (DM's choice). One ritual of solitude spell, one ritual of compliment spell, and one Myriad spell.

    * Epic level spells: This high lore gem contains three epic level spells that are unique to this particular Selu'Kiira. (described below).

    Fury of the Fey; Epic level spell.

    Conjuration (Summoning)
    Spellcraft DC: 80
    Components: V, S
    Casting Time: 1 minute
    Range: 120 ft.
    Effect: Summoned creatures
    Duration: 20 rounds (D)
    Saving Throw: None
    Spell Resistance: No

    This epic spell mimics the mirror image spell, causing half the casters HD in images to appear and randomly confuse the enemies. (I.E. 30 HD = 15 images). Each image is a exact duplicate of the caster and flanks the nearest opponent dealing 1d12 damage each round until stricken or dealt damage itself, in which case that image bursts into a furious Pixie or Quickling (players choice), with full abilities. The Pixies or Quicklings last until they are slain and cannot be compelled or forced to act out another command. This epic spell is the result of a pact between Erevan Ilesere and the Seelie and Unseelie court made during the wars of the Anti-Seldarine after Loth's fall to the Abyss.


    The Fey Jesters Starbolts; Epic level spell

    Conjuration [Teleportation]
    Spellcraft DC: 56
    Components: V, S
    Casting Time: 1 minute
    Range: 1,000 feet plus 100 feet per HD
    Target: Creature or object touched by bolt.
    Duration: Instantaneous.
    Saving Throw: Will save.
    Spell Resistance: yes.

    This epic spell mimics the magic missile spell, with the following exceptions; The caster unleashes a multitude of chaotic bolts of varying colors, shaped like asymmetrical star-bursts. These 10 starbolts equal to half the casters HD in damage, and upon impact are sent to another plane of existence, depending on the color of the starbolt. (Roll a 10 die to determine result.)

    blue Arvandor
    red nine hells
    green Beast lands
    yellow limbo
    orange seven heavens
    purple plane of shadow
    silver positive plane
    black negative plane
    pink fey-wild
    brown pandemonium


    The Tricksters Wildzone; Epic level spell

    Transmutation
    Spellcraft DC: 55
    Components: V, S
    Casting Time: 1 minute
    Range: 900 ft.
    Target: Centered on caster
    Duration: 10 rounds
    Saving Throw: no
    Spell Resistance: No

    Once cast,it creates a disruption in magical forces similar to those found in a Wild Magic area that is centered on her. When used, she creates a Wild Magic zone in a 900 foot radius spread centered on her, that moves with her, and has an additional 5 foot radius spread for every character level she has. Within the Wildzone, any spell cast, or magic item used in the radius spread is automatically treated as if using a rod of wonder. (Use the rod of wonder table on PG. 199 of the PH.) The Wildzone is treated just as a Wild Magic area in accordance to magic weapons and armor, or spells cast from outside the area of effect. In addition, the caster may choose to re-roll a single save, attack, or damage roll made in the same round in which the spell was cast.
