The Itharils; commonly known as "Seeing-Stones," were twelve magical artifacts; created long ago by the Council of Sorcerë.


The purpose of these stones was to allow distant kings to communicate with each other instantly. Much could be seen and learned from these stones, and all were given out to rulers of various kingdoms of Corwyn. The twelve Itharil stones were given out as follows:

FATE OF THE TWELVE ITHARILS


Over the centuries, five of the Seeing-Stones were lost or captured during times of war and upheaval; those of Thalar in 825/4, Kronar in 1079/4, Thekarë in 1233/4, Rhodara in 1289/4, and Alveron in 625/5. The seven remaining Itharils reside in the dwarf-realms of Kharos-Thûngol and Orrek, the Elf-realm of Melinarë, and the human kingdoms of Ammarind, Cyrendar, Eldara, and Serathyr.
