Fear not, my magi. While we may be delving into the unknown, we are not doing so blindly. Here, within the Gardens of Ateph, the iris of night offers us a glimpse into the tapestry beyond. Watch as the stars dwindle and fade at its edges. Witness as the insatiable darkness eats away at what the gods have wrought.
That, my friends, is true power; the power to unravel even the will of the gods. This is what we seek and what we will learn to master. In that, I will be your honored guide.

These jewels not only serve as a symbol binding us in this conclave, they will ward us against unwanted attention, from our plane and the one beyond.
