The Wykem-Tree is a very rare tree that grows in areas where many people have died and their bodies have been left undisturbed for decades. As the tree matures it produces thin stalks along it's trunk which can be harvested for their potent sap which has curative properties.
The older the tree, the more potent the sap found in these stalks. The only known Wykem Trees left are jealously guarded by Fey, for their rumoured connection to the tree's wooden stalks.
The librarian kindly explains that no War Wizard openly speaks of their research subject in such a manner that a library would have it written down, instead the Librarian advice the officer to seek a Mystran for advice.
She finds a passage in a book of old mythologies...
The Earth Mother saw an empty world, and filled it with forests. It was lacking in beauty, so she breathed into life the first unicorn.
The Earth Mother saw deep canyons, and filled them with oceans, so that life may live in its depths, and she molded from clay the first whale.
She saw her children starve, so she took their bones and molded the first wolves, to hunt prey and let them remain healthy.
Content, she rested, sleeping deep in the Moonshaes, protected by her first children.
She finds no mention of a fourth.
The Transmutor finds few records of the Shadovar, their chance of survival or even any records of any undead Shadovar. Soldiers scoff at the very idea, proclaiming non could had survived the fall and those whom were on the ground were defeated by the Cormyrian forces.
All in all, it appears Cormyr lacks true research material into the Shadovar and what is know by the Crown Forces is well guarded.
After pondering for awhile and debating how much he should reveal he settles on his questions
"Do we know anything about life on Glyth? Do we know anything about what might circle it, much like Selune circles us? Is it possible for one of the sages with their viewing scopes or magic to see if something might have left Glyth and headed towards Toril?"
////Since it seems the solar system in realmspace is common knowledge can I assume cannon for at least things like maps of the solar system, and basic planetary information? Didn't want to assume as nothing was listed here.
[A rather wispy and used up fellow of a librarian comments that it's possible, maybe likely the third mysterious god was Midnight or Mystra or Mystryl, but who can know with the gods being how they are? He mutters as he shuffles off about the silliness of women, divine or not...]
She tells him, "An officially recognized shrine would need an officially recognized church member in good standing to even begin the paperwork." Then she reminds him that she's a librarian, not the Herald's personal secretary.
Apparently either un-phased by the Librarian's lack of interest or just plain naive, Gali goes to add another book on top of his first one still sitting on the desk. Before setting it down he wipes the dust off the first book, sets down the second one, smiles at the Librarian, and takes his leave
The Celestial Summoner: Second Circle
The Rhek by Galianard Von Amerstein
The Rhek actually originally hail from somewhere on our very own Material Plane. Rheks try to impose order upon a chaotic multiverse, doing their best to crush evil wherever they find it. As such, when the Plane of Arcadia's third layer dissolved, a planar faction called the Harmonium reached out to the Rhek. Thus the Rhek were willingly brought to Arcadia and helped restore order in the wake of such a cataclysmic event. Meticulous in seeing that everything is kept in its proper place, the Rhek have a low tolerance for unpredictable beings. They enforce order through violence, but they are not bloodthirsty.
Appearance and Personality
The sight of the Rhek is one of a a hulking humanoid which combines the features of a human and a rhinoceros. Gleaming armor tends to cover their leathery, pale-gray hide, and all Rhek have a great black horn jutting from the middle of their forehead. They typically stand 7 feet tall and weigh 350 pounds. Rhek are actually able to speak the Common language as their ancestors originate from the Material Plane. The Rhek I bounded with, Grandark, has a beat up evil, no time for small talk type of personality. When he does speak, it's typically in short sentances if not one word answers.
Abilities with Which to Confront Evil
In combat, the Rhek will charge halberd or horn first at the nearest enemy and then try to overpower their opponent. If they are not in the thick of the melee, it is only a matter of time before they are.
Forming the Summoner's Bond
Summoners interesting in forming a connection of their own with the Rhek and thus being able to summon them to their side should explore a connection to the celestial plane. There are books within Arabel that speak of the exalted deeds our celestial companions are capable of and would serve as a suitable connection.
