Return of Xoriat
This orb looks to have been plucked out of the eye socket of a dragon. With a circumference of approximately 28 inches, it glows with an eerie radiance and its pupil darts about as if the orb has some sort of sentience all its own.
The Dragons Eye, Aridarastrixsauriv in Draconic, is a powerful artifact made by a powerful Demon Lord during the Age of Demons approximately 200,000 years ago. It is said that whoever possess the orb can bend the very will of dragons and make them do their bidding. Draconic agents managed to secretly steal the device during the Age of Fiends, trapping its creators beneath the ancient city of Haka’torvhak before their weapon could be rebuilt. The orb was sundered and its physicality was placed in the Temple of Khashazul while its essence was taken to the Orrery of Vortuum. The explorer Jheamast learned about the artifact and that it could possibly help his people in their fight against the Quori and sought it out. He and Ravenia von Zarovich were the only members of his party to make it out of the temple alive and he died before he could reassemble the artifact. One half of it was buried with him and the other half was taken back to Barovia with Ravenia.
