The Shaded Vale
Scepter of Fastor
The Scepter of Fastor is an enchanted item, formerly belonging to the now deceased Fastor, Lord Mage of Fastormel. The Scepter has been magically bound to Fastor’s soul, which was set afloat in the Astral Sea. As such, the Scepter is considered an intelligent artifact, though it has no intelligence of it’s own. A person can communicate with Fastor simply by holding the Scepter in their bare hand. When the Scepter detects that physical connection to a living being in the mortal world, the link is established.
