Fury of the Immortals
The famous magical shield of "Bryan the Dragon Hoarder" (according to Earos), the party discovered it in the depths of Corran Keep. It was simultaneously sought by marauding Gnolls, nosy Glantrian students of wizardry, and a Horrific Floating Brain Creature. After freeing the shield from the clutches of the aforementioned seekers, the party was surprised to discover the Mirror Shield housed an apparition. However, once Pennar agreed to switch places with the man in the shield, they discovered he was quite real – if not glowing, growing and warning of apocalypse – and named Rheddrian. After disappearing, reappearing and then thanking the party with a chest full of gold, Rheddrain again disappeared taking the Mirror Shield with him.
Kota-Hutan Elder: The Kota-Hutan elder contradicted Earos a bit when he related the legend of the Shield's owner "Balthac the Dragon-Slayer." According to the elder, the Shield has the ability to reflect dragon's breath. Balthac had apparently used the Shield to great effect more than 1000 years ago before retiring to his Keep on the edge of The Broken Lands. The elder says that what is left out of the legend is what his grandfather related to him – that Balthac turned to worshipping dark alien gods.
