The Eye of Kaedin is a beautiful disk-shaped brooch fashioned of purest silver. Each face of the brooch is intricately carved with arcane runes. Embedded in the center of the device is a perfectly round piece of sunder shard. If one stares long into the jewel of the brooch, one gets the impression of a large unblinking eye staring back at them. The Eye of Kaedin is centuries old. The once gleaming silver is now tarnished and scratched.
During the Age of Sorrow, there lived a sorcerer named Kaedin. Weary of thieves pillaging his tower, he created a fabulous jewel and placed a curse upon it. Kaedin is long dead now and his tower is collapsed. His legacy is lost to the ages. The Eye of Kaedin, however, still exists today.
Because of the nature of this item, it has passed from thief to thief for countless years. It has been circulated around the lands many times and has become something of a myth to thieves.
If the Eye of Kaedin is stolen, the thief is immediately struck blind. This blindness is a curse... an enchanted darkness drawn down upon the eyes. It can be dispelled, but only by the most powerful of magicks. If the item is ever stolen from the victim, sight is restored and the "curse" of blindness is transferred to the new thief/victim.
