Items for Auction House
Items for the Tower of Balance
An arcane cage device that captures the essence of a living creature that passes by. Most dramatic when the being it is dawn from is killed.
Talismans of Elements, Booklet of Making Elements
Set of talismans with arcane symbols. Placing them on an object applies that element. Considered a routine magic item, nearly all sorcerers know how to make them. As a bonus, they can be used by non-sorcerers.
|Arcane||None.||Normal Arcana||Very Usable||Study|
Anatomical Drawing of a Leviathan
A large folio of drawings on the anatomical details of a Leviathan. It boggles the mind how a dissection table large enough was found.
Academics: access for 1 month for 8 crowns (4 to start, 4 a fortnight later); later to be used as leverage with envoys of Haven
Items for "discrete" sale
Rift Warhead Torpedo Plans
A ripped apart blueprint design for a horrific weapon which tears a hole in the fabric of reality and banned by the Imperial Family. Highly illegal, hidden away in a cigar box in the secret study.
|Unk.||None||War Crime||Ripped Up||Secret Study|
A pair of Cufflinks which, when tapped together, cause a poison-covered needle to be revealed. The needle was poisoned when found, and the poison itself has not been tested.
Symbol of the Fallen House
Items retained for personal use
Ring: Demon Posession
A simple ring with damaged arcane markings makes it easier for the wearer to be possessed by demons.
|0.25 or Arcane||None||Odd||Functional||Study|
Ring: Demon Protection
A simple ring with markings that protects the wearer from possession by demons.
Broken Sword with Jeweled Scurlock Crest
A beautiful jeweled Scurlock Crest mounted into the hilt of a broken sword. Only Edward knows of this at this time, he has not shared it with the rest of the family.
|Unk.||Family Jewels||Famly Herloom||Just a broken blade||Edward|
Antique Pocket Watch
A beautiful antique watch with the Scurlock family crest embossed on the cover.
Items retained for family use
Map of the Estate
Recovered off of Uncle Alward, this faded and warn map is not of particularly high quality but was accurate enough to aid with the discovery of three secret rooms/closets.
|1/2 Crown||Family Iconography||Typical Item||Warn and Flurshed||The Study|
Handmade Map of Essence Lines
Arcane lay-line chart. This extremely large folio folds out to cover the floor of a good-sized room.
|Very||Functional||Arcane||Extreamly Useful||The Study|
Map of the Laboratory
A pristine and highly accurate map of the laboratory and its surrounding swear tunnels. The result of extensive cross-referencing work of public records, likely in preparation for the original construction.
|2 Crown||Useful||Secretive||Prestine||Secret Study|
Father's Favorite Rifle
One of the few things Jedmond knew exactly where was, this well-crafted hunting rifle was beloved by the elder Scurlock.
|Unknown||Family Item||Typical Item||Prestine||The Study|
Charcoal Sketch of Ancestor of Scurlock
A charcoal sketch of Great Grandfather Scurlock.
|Unk.||He's Family||Is It Art?||Good Condition||Front Parlor|

|Unk.||He's Family||Is It Art?||Slightly Damaged||Front Parlor|
Staged Construction Frame
A wondrous array that assists in the systematic expansion of machine construction. This particular device was arranged and used to provide Bastion with a staged series of larger bodies, allowing him to experience the process of growing up physically as well as psychologically and, thusly, being also be able to interact with his peers at the appropriate sizes and ages. The rig is still functional and could be used for similar applications.
|Valuable||Personal (Baston)||Curio||Funcitonal||Secret Machinist Shop|
Smuggling Compartment Schematic
One of Lord Scurlock's designs, these schematics detail how to create a small insulated location inside the engine which, while increasing engine maintenance, creates a very hard-to-find smuggling compartment within the engine system.
|Specific||Functional||Illegal||Funcitonal||Jimmy O'Brian (Airship)|
Arcane Notes on Transplants
Arcane and occult notes written in the old Lord Scurlock's hand. Provides information on the binding of severed bodyparts onto living hosts. Includes diagrams of people with four arms and people with two hearts, among others.
Dart with Demon Blood
A peculiar dart designed to inject Demon Blood into another person, the results of which would be quite dramatic. Specially encased to preserve it for use.
An ornate silver dagger for ritual use. Has some material value, but more to an arcane practitioner. (Sold for 4 Crowns)
|1 + Arcane||None||Arcane||Polished||Front Parlor|
An old device for navigating the Aether by airship. A museum piece at this point, a relic of another age. Curiously, it was stolen at the auction.
While slightly out of date, they were once a very nice set of hand-tools for working on airships.
|3 Crown||Minimal||Hobby Craft||Great Condition||Front Parlor|
Well worn book on Airship Theory
A first edition printing of the theory and principles which made airship travel possible.
|3+ Crown||None||Famous Work||Falling Apart||Front Parlor|
Surrealist Picture "The Longing"
A peculiar painting that seems like just a wash of colors and lines that can somehow both draw the viewer in and repulse them as unnatural. Setarra identified it as a remarkable rendition of being summoned.
|12 (20) Crowns||To Setarra?||Is It Art?||?||Front Parlor|
Signature of the First Emperor
|15 (25) Crowns||To Setarra?||Is It Art?||?||Front Parlor|
Oil Painting "Shape in Song"
A faded and warn oil painting depicting a ritual taking place on a tiny atoll. In the center is a glowing crystal, surrounding it are the waving arms of a Leviathan. Needs some restoration work.
|1.25 (2) Crown||To Setarra?||Is It Art?||Warn and Faded||Front Parlor|
