Desert of Desolation
Star Gems of Martek
Martek gave five Star Gems to the rulers of the lands crossed by the River Athis, one to each. The Star of Mo-Pelar, a fist-sized opal, he gave to the Pharaoh Amun-Re, who locked it in his theft-proof tomb. The Star of Aga-Pelar, a huge sapphire of midnight black with a star of purest white, he gave to the Lord of Pazar. The Star of Shah-Pelar, a very large faceted ruby, he gave to a pharaoh whose name is lost in antiquity. The Star of Khan-Pelar, an enormous clear crystal, is thought to be buried near the White Palm. The Star of Melos-Pelar, a faceted amythest ball, was taken into the Cursed City of Stone, never to be seen again. All five are needed to locate Martek's Tomb.
