The Koldoran Piece
An artifact from Xen’drik with some tie to Aldus Thunderspanner. It has been rumored to be tied to aberrant dragonmarks, and thus House Tarkanan has an interest it, having attempted to steal it before (supposedly the kobold Vhir was involved). Tarkanan agents succeeded recently in an attack on the Storm Ascendant to steal the Piece again. It was recovered and is currently believed to be in Aldus’ possession.
