Quick Recap...
This is a quick recap of what I think should have actually happened in chapter 1:

Githrya, Tyronius, Moravin (possibly change Bragolas and Dalmar, but I am open to keeping them) discovered the strange tomb, which had the guardians and whatnot. However Moravin identified the runes as ancient Thanian, although slightly cruder than the runes which were commonly seen throughout the later part of the Caladormian Period and Alliance Wars. He knew of no Thanian presence in these lands prior to the Alliance Wars, however, so it was unexplained how such runes came to be there.

Even the name "Here Lies Askarshol" did not sound familiar to the scholar, the battlemage having long been forgotten in all lore. In the room they did indeed find Askarshol in suspended sleep along with the unidentified elfin female. The explosions and such followed and they disappeared. Forget the crowns (Sorry boys).

What do you think? And since Askarshol teleported instinctively the moment the barrier about him was removed, he didn't have time to get the crystal or anything. So his power (wherever he is) is very weak since he likely isn't in the vicinity of any of the Vurla Stones, hence why he wouldn't set about decimating the world.

What do you say?

Sounds good to me. So the threat is they know Souron is looking for the One Ring to Rule Them All, basically, and our job is to stop him from getting it/them?

Although, what if we really epic-ed it up, and had a bunch of rogue (or not so rogue) varim attack Carendisal in an attempt to steal the Crystal of Askarshol? We could set the opening scene there.

If I knew what that Crystal was, I wouldn't have let Tyronius keep it in the first place. Not once I was already holding it. But if I had been so foolish then yes, there are certain houses who would not mind having the power to topple House Orthran (and indeed the whole ruling council.)
