Echoes of the Past
This box was taken by ***Unknown***
Tismith revealed the name of the magical device taken from the The Spinning Copper Gang is Dur Vessa’s Box. It is a fabled item that grants its operator the ability to find what they seek. The operation of the box is deliberately complex so it cannot be used by accident. Dur Vessa, as the story goes, lived in ancient times and used the box to gain long life, wealth and power. She is known to have acquired a following although it is unknown if they worshipped her as a goddess or merely as a powerful and influential woman. There is evidence in the writings of her pilgrims that she wished for that which is forbidden the owner of the box; she wished to meet the builders of the device. After that she disappeared and never returned. A red haired noble lady ( unnamed at this point but known to Tismith ) found a map that led to the box’s location. The spinning copper gang retrieved it after a year of questing. The wizard Mollan Thursk leaned of its return to sanctuary and intercepted it before it could be delivered to the woman who contracted for it. He wiped the last two years memory from the spinning copper gang and made a failed attempt to murder them at the [[The Ape & Dog | The Ape & Dog]] .
