Sceptre of Aetharis
As one of very few original elven artefacts, the Sceptre is prized within the Kingdom and across all elven settlements as a valuable reminder of their history. It was safeguarded by House Ae'tharis, and kept under heavy magical suppression, until Talindë Ae'tharis stole it from his House and fled in 5623 to use it for its other properties - the heavy command of intensely powerful magic that the Sceptre possesses. Whilst the Sceptre existed far prior to the rise of arcane magic, it has always been extremely powerful and able to defy the limits placed by divine magic. It seems to be able to bend the fabric of reality itself, warping both space and time as it so wishes, but must always defer to the final judgement of the one it accepts as its master. To protect itself and its master from harm, the Sceptre has been known to bend time and call beings from other planes to defend it, placing them under heavy mind control if necessary. It also seems to contain a demiplane of its own, that - paradoxically - it can actually be stored inside of. This is one of few ways it has previously been lost, as one of its former masters was slain after storing it within itself, thus losing the secret of the Sceptre's ownership. After a century, it re-appeared in the hands of an apprentice of House Ae'tharis, allegedly complaining about the long wait for a worthy successor. It can be assumed that whilst the Sceptre seems to like having a master, it can access much of its power using its own vast intellect. Wielders of the Sceptre are rare, and under constant supervision to ensure that they do not misuse its power. They are required to store the Sceptre within its suppressors when not in use, and must be cautious as to what they use it for - and how long they carry it. It has been known to bend time almost unintentionally around its wielder, making what feels like a minute to them be a year in truth (or vice versa, as its current wielder and the Lost Ones discovered).
