The Price of Generosity
The Holy Grail
The Holy Grail is a wondrous magical item of supreme power- it is said that it can grant a form of a wish in the form of restored life to whoever drinks from it. Over the various ages it has appeared physically as different drinking vessels- for the Dwarf King it appeared as a beer stein, for the Elf Queen it was a delicate wine flute, and for the followers of Ashquay, a golden chalice. Despite its changed appearance, however, it always retains a large red gem encircled by thirteen smaller red gems.
Though each owner has prized the item it has somehow managed to get lost every time, so that it travels from hand to hand, serving different ends all the time. The Elf Queen had used it to revive a consort of hers in a past age, the Dwarf King kept it for centuries as his personal drinking stein, and the third Abbat of Ashquay had found it on a sacred quest for his order. He kept it for forty years before it was lost, and his followers have been seeking it ever since.
Its current whereabouts are unknown.
