ON-icon-furnishing-Blackwood Map.png Name Antique Map of Blackwood Value N/A
Gabrielle Benele
This is a map of the Blackwood region. The parchment is worn, but it is still detailed, especially along the coast. There is something strange here, though I can't put my finger on it. Still, the map shows caves even I've forgotten about!
Regius Buca
What strikes me about this map is that the lines appear to have been drawn in squid ink. See how it faded to brown, like the parchment, rather than gray or black? The use of squid ink suggests a sailing vessel rather than a cartographer's shop.
Ugron gro-Thumog
Regius is right about this map, the focus on waterways shows a sailor's eye. See how the Snake Tail River opens into marshlands instead of carrying on to the Niben itself? That might date the map between the flood off 2E 218 and the Crow's Storm of 2E 255.

ON-icon-stolen-Devotion Shovel.png Name Imperial Legionary's Spade Value 250
Verita Numida
I recognize this style from the First Era, shortly after Reman II took the Ruby Throne. It absolutely boggles the mind to see something so old so undamaged. We should count ourselves very lucky for such a find.
Ugron gro-Thumog
If you're right, we could very well be looking at the spade of a soldier sent to conquer the swamps of Black Marsh during Reman's rule. Apparently he lost more men to the harsh conditions than he did the fighting.
Reginus Buca
That may explain why the spade itself is so well-preserved. Bogs are notorious for degrading things lost to their depths at a much slower rate than other environments. Perhaps this was lost below the surface for all these years.

It's hard to tell without having the fully formed piece, but this looks Ayleid in origin to me. Barsaebic Ayleids, to be specific. Those worn symbols might have been to honor the Aedra.
Reginus Buca
Gideon was originally founded by the Ayleids, wasn't it? The name of that settlement is sadly lost to time, but perhaps this belonged to one of the first to settle in Black Marsh after leaving greater Cyrodiil.

Yes! The Aedra angle is an interesting one, too. The Barsaebic Ayleids left to avoid their Daedra-worshipping kin during the Narfinsel Schism. It makes sense given the location!

There is no way to tell whether or not this tool was truly used by Saint Kaladas. But given the area in which it was found, its age, and the relatively well-preserved nature, I'm inclined to at least entertain the theory. Kaladas constructed the The Great Chapel of Zenithar in Leyawiin and some records say he was fond of using highly ornamented tools like this during the process. I suppose it would make sense. Buildings constructed without painstaking measurement rarely last this long.

ON-icon-furnishing-Kothringi Tidal Canoe.png Name Kothringi Tidal Canoe Value N/A
Reginus Buca
What a magnificent vessel! Given the location, one might assume it's of Argonian make, but I assure you, this is Kothringi craftsmanship. Their shipbuilding tradition is very idiosyncratic. Unusual paddle placement, shallow draft, and a sail! Intriguing!
Verita Numida
Idiosyncratic indeed. The boat's design is clearly canoe-like--appropriate given the shallow, narrow waterways of Black Marsh. But why a sail? Taking a boat like this onto the open water would be suicidal, even for sailors as talented as the Kothringi.
Ugron gro-Thumog
Never underestimate a Kothringi's skill in a boat! They probably used this along the coast--never venturing too far out into the Topal Bay. It's sturdy enough to cross the Niben, and small enough to navigate the swamp. A perfect vessel for Blackwood.

Well, this is no Argonian relic, that much is obvious. Note the curvilinear design elements. I'd say it's Kothringi; the question is, what does it depict? A lot of these shapes seem reminiscent of waves. Some kind of nautical deity?
Verita Numida
That focal shape is clearly a spade—the symbol of the Kothringi God of Agriculture, Z'en. A fascinating deity, that Z'en. We know the Wood Elves swear on him for vengeance's sake. I doubt the Kothringi version keeps blood-debts in his portfolio.
Reginus Buca
Z'en is not an inherently vengeful deity. "Payment in kind" can mean equitable trade, basic fairness, and so on. By all accounts, the Kothringi were decent folk who placed great emphasis on forthrightness. Perhaps reverence for Z'en played a role.

Something in Black Marsh just refuses to let Argonians rest easy. Even pinned down by their xul-vaat burial stakes, dead lizard folk still manage to stand up and cause trouble. You'll often see them wearing masks like this, though this one is far older and hewn from higher-quality wood. Native Argonians won't explain the practice. Part of me wonders if they put their dead in masks because they don't want to see a beloved egg-brother's face when they have to beat him back into the grave.

Come now, Ugron. I've never known you to be superstitious. Yes, the skull motif is disquieting from an aesthetic perspective, but Argonians utilize skeletal imagery in many Sithis effigies and idols. This definitely dates back to the xanmeer period.

I wouldn't dismiss Ugron's concerns out of hand, Verita. I detect deep reservoirs of chaotic energy in the glass. It means to make some sort of trade, I think. Not uncommon in enchanted Argonian relics, but still unsettling.

They're wraxu feathers! An extinct relative of the Elsweyr terror bird! According to Varid's Guide to Unusual Birds, they grew as tall as mammoths with tails as long as wagon tongues! Alas, they died out during the Reman Incursion's Great Burn, 1E 2830s.
Ugron gro-Thumog
I saw a bas relief in a xanmeer near Soulrest that depicted a bird like that--devouring an egg framed by the sun. I figured it was an illustration of Argonian reincarnation, but now I'm thinking these birds might have some cultural connection to Sithis.

Verita's right. I'd wager this is a mix of bog iron, nickel, and something else--probably imported. What interests me is these symbols. Plenty of hard angles like you'd see in any xanmeer-period piece, but I don't recognize some of these patterns.
Reginus Buca
We often consider Helstrom the immortal capital of the Argonian people, but I've found evidence of a struggle for regional hegemony in Soulrest. Greater coastal access in Soulrest allowed for more imports of foreign goods and aesthetics.

Teeth! Always a macabre favorite of mine! Most of the time we find teeth from terrestrial or semi-aquatic species in Argonian antiquities, but these look like shark teeth. Maybe these came from an ancient maritime operation?
Ugron gro-Thumog
Not likely. These are pad-sa teeth. Pad-sa sharks are scrappy survivors with a range that goes from freshwater to salty and everything in between. You usually find them far upriver along the coast--from the mouth of the Niben to the Topal Bay.
Reginus Buca
I gave up trying to identify Argonian varnishes some years ago, but these teeth are very well preserved--too well preserved to be a simple tool. I suspect they featured in some ceremonial dress. Perhaps to channel the shark's resilience? Or appetite?

Ugron gro-Thumog
They remind me of funerary wraps; the kind you might find securing a bog-blight's mask to its head. I wager these kept a mask in place too. The question is, what kind? The weave is tight and rugged. Not the sort of thing you'd imagine on a priest.
Amalien
You're right, Ugron. This pattern—reminiscent of an Khajiiti cross weave—most often appears in Argonian martial gear. Tsojei grip wraps, armor and shield straps, etc. An wealthy warrior probably used this with a helmet of some kind!

The Kothringi's distaste for clothing is well-known, but someone definitely wore this. Perhaps as a robe or kilt? It carries arcane power, for sure. Something primal--helping the wearer find success on a hunt, I'll bet.

Reginus Buca
According to my research, the Kothringi preferred faceted stones because they scattered the light like fish scales. Combined with these prey-feathers, this stone would be a powerful fetish for hunters and harpooners.
Amalien
A powerful fetish indeed! According to Kothringi folklore, bog-blue jaspers come from the gizzards of "geels-ha butcher eels"--massive river predators that swallow haj mota whole! This stone holds tremendous cultural--and maybe magical--power.

Amalien
The Kothringi didn't consider these beads clothing. They were wearable instruments! Kothringi measured the worth of most things by their sound. My Argonian friend, Ree-Tei, told me the only reason they wanted gold was because of the clink it made!
Verita Numida
Let's not overstate, Amalien. The Kothringi were well aware of gold's value outside Black Marsh. But, it is true that musicality played an oversized role in their cultural expression. Judging by the size, they probably wore these around the waist.

There was a species of long-legged swamp wolves that went extinct in the 2E 10s. Lost huge numbers during the Great Burn and never recovered. You see a few of their features in the Blackwood dire wolf, though. Must have crossbred a bit.
Gabrielle Benele
Whatever its origin, this tail is heavily enchanted. Kothringi magic is so unusual that I almost missed it. It heightens the wearer's senses, I think. Or their reflexes. Perhaps both? At any rate, it's only one part of a larger garment. Still, remarkable!

The weave of the rope is very tight, but that's not the only source of its strength. I see metallic strands woven into the cord. Kothringi smiths might have been capable of a feat like that, though I've never seen it executed this seamlessly.
Verita Numida
I believe Reginus has the right of it. Wealthy Kothringi sailors probably used this in their boats or even wore it around the waist. The coloration here indicates to me that something was strung on it. Glass beads or talismans. Both functional and lovely.

While this is cleary very old, I'm still fascinated to see the prongs separate from whatever they once held. Many rings from the mid-First Era had this kind of crude fastening system with heavy handed smithing, making the prongs near unbreakable.
