From DivNull RPG

Art by AndyHep

An artifact of immense power, used by a variety of figures throughout history to muck things up. Basically the biggest McGuffin in the game.

History[edit]

  • RY 146: Bagrash Köl uses the Eye to build a great kingdom in the North, which surpasses the early Realm. (isle.19, ocdx.16, coin.13)
  • RY 176: The Eye of Autochthon destroys the kingdom of Bagrash Köl. (coin.11, coin.13)
  • RY 244: Manosque Viridian uses the Eye to attempt a coup. He is destroyed by Realm defenses/when his army falls into the sky. (isle.19, ocdx.16)
  • RY 604: The mortal prophet Ikerre uses the Eye to slay enormous numbers of Souther Fair Folk, transforming them into the multi-colored quartz that now forms the Glittering Desert. (wyld.110, masq.46, tdso.14, fair.39, fair.74)
