The Cloven Crystals are magical items that resemble an amber cat's eye. The Crystals are critical to releasing Uk'otoa, acting as keys to its confinement. It rewards those who use Crystals to free it with control over water.

Description

The Cloven Crystal has an amber-yellowish color. It has striations that refract light around it. At one end, there is a pointed oval line carved in about three inches across.[1] The Cloven Crystals in Fjord's possession are two of the three known crystals for Uk'otoa. The Cloven Crystal Avantika deposited on Urukaxl is the third. With all the crystals deposited, Uk'otoa can be released to rule the Lucidian Ocean once again, just as it had done in ages past.

History

Background

"Lost Treasures" (2x22)

In the subterranean tunnels under the Labenda Swamp, the Mighty Nein found a Cloven Crystal resting in a pool of water. Fjord went to touch it and immediately entered a dreamlike trance, during which he saw a vision of his mentor, Vandren, standing over a body, thrusting the Crystal into his chest, and summoning the same falchion that Fjord wielded. Fjord also thrust the Cloven Crystal into his chest. After this incident, the falchion appeared to have a Cloven Crystal resting within it.[2]

"The Journey Home" (2x30)

Many thanks to you Ionos,

for dealing with the thieves who appropriated my possession. Reliability like this will prove profitable for you and your house should you continue to be. One half of our agreed payment is enclosed with the other being paid upon recovery of the Cloven Crystal. It is imperative that you find this bauble and return it to me. It has great sentimental value to me and my family. This rendering should suffice to guide the discerning eyes of your hunters.

Time is of the essence. Should I not have it by the end of Quen'pillar, I shall be forced to end our agreement and seek a business relationship elsewhere. I warn you: we are *fiercely* loyal to those who appease us, and *staunchly* resentful to those who do not.

When recovered, please deliver to Marius LePual at the Wayfarer's Cove. Tell him you have a gift for the Captain.
