Honest Bob's Amulet
On multiple ocassions, Honest Bob has been seen using a magical amulet, which teleports him to an unknown location. The other party members first saw it during the Battle of Worldend, when Bob used it in conjunction with one of the magical amplification devices on a Desertkin airship in order to steal the entire ship. Moments later, he reappeared in midair without the ship. He survived the fall and refused to explain to his companions where the amulet had taken him or what he had done with the airship. During a later adventure, he produced the airship again to rescue his companions from danger, but immediately crashed it on Mt. Ascension.
Intermittently Bob disappeared throughout the party’s adventures and then returned, always being vague about his whereabouts. Recently Bob vanished and left his amulet to the party – but the trinket was taken from them by wraiths. The party soon learned the amulet was in fact stolen from a grand lich named Acerak – who seeks to use the magical trinket to escape his confines and rule the world. The party was able to stop Acerak from returning but ultimately lost Bob’s amulet to Vital, who ripped it from Bob’s neck and escaped.
