slender white gold mourning band set with a large Ilithi emerald
Look: A portrait of a solemn Elothean woman is carved into the perfect green stone. Her hair is worn pulled up in a complicated twist, elegant but many decades out of fashion. The woman's almond-shaped eyes possess the wisdom of age, but the set of her mouth hints at an indomitable spirit.

There appears to be something written on it.

A slender mourning band reads:
"Ilithi remembers."

Has a Bardic evoke.

Evoke

You focus on the mourning band, seeking any impressions of the past.

Reality seems to shudder, and suddenly Outcast King Raenilar and Ferdahl Kukalakai stand before you.

Raenilar steps before Kukalakai, his manner distant and impersonal. With his right hand he grasps her hair, pulling her head back as she stands motionless. He raises the dagger in his left hand to rest lightly against her throat. The two stare at each other across the blade.

Still meeting the woman's gaze, Raenilar gestures and those holding her step back. As they do, he turns the blade and draws it sharp and strong in a slanting, downward stroke. The blade cuts deep, and blood follows instantly in a bright spray.

Kukalakai staggers as the dagger bites, one hand reaching as if to grasp at the arm holding her before falling to her side. A small exhalation, almost a laugh, escapes her along with a trickle of blood from her mouth as she dies.

Raenilar releases her hair and the body of the Ferdahl slides from the blade to fold on the bloody ground.

With a start, you find yourself drawn back to the reality of the here and now.

Explanation

Auctioneer Mahilin says, "This mourning band is different than the other two."
Auctioneer Mahilin says, "'This gem was present when the Outcast King Raenilar slew the Ferdahl, Kukalakai."
Auctioneer Mahilin says, "A skilled Bard may evoke this experience. Truly sad and grim thing, though, so I am not sure why one would wish to." Auctioneer Mahilin says, "This event was long ago, however, so the skill needed to draw forth its secrets is much greater. Even this vivid impression, it fades with time."
