During the wars of the Calamity, great destruction rained across the many lands of the world. Broken remnants of history speak of battles between gods leveling mountains and sinking islands.

Chosen heroes rose up to accept the artifacts of their patrons to combat the tide of death their adversaries harnessed. Powerful archmages harnessed the surging arcane powers of the war to forge incredible objects of potent strength and ability, further arming every side of the conflict. Relics of the Age of Arcanum were further enhanced, creating unheard-of magical capabilities.

When the battle climaxed in a wave of aberrant destruction, leaving much of civilization in ruins, many of these artifacts were buried among the ashes with their wielders. Others were passed down through bloodlines for generations, a sign of respect and importance within their culture. Some were locked away, the fear of their power giving temples reason to keep them from mortal hands, while a handful still see use to this day by great warriors or proven killers.

These mighty echoes of the last great war, and the divine banishment that followed, are known as the Vestiges of Divergence.

Excerpt from the Critical Role: Tal'Dorei Campaign Setting[1]
[!h]

The Vestiges of the Divergence are ancient and powerful artifacts from the Calamity.  These items have since been scattered around the world—lost to the history books, passed down as symbols of power through various bloodlines or government positions, or stolen and un-recovered for hundreds of years.[2]  According to Kamaljiori, the androsphinx mate of Osysa, some Vestiges have been destroyed over this epoch, others lie scattered across the planes of existence, and some are sealed or hidden.[3]

The Vestiges are legendary artifacts that grow in power with the experience, force of will, and strength of character of the bearer. Many Vestiges, if sealed away or left without a worthy attuned individual for a period of time, will revert to their dormant state. A dormant state still imbues a modicum of power to the attuned, but with time, perseverance, and personal growth, the Vestige can regain access to some of its lost ability in its awakened state. Eventually, through extreme personal challenge, evolution, and achievement, the Vestige can reach its full potential in its exalted state. This is the true power of the Vestige, the state when it was originally utilized in the Calamity against battle-ready gods.[4]

Over the course of their adventures, the adventuring party Vox Machina has found and retrieved eight of these powerful items throughout Exandria and even the various planes of existence bordering the Prime Material Plane.

Vestiges Found by Vox Machina Edit

Cabal's Ruin Edit

Cabals-Ruin-by-David-Rodrigues

Fan art of Cabal's Ruin, by David Rodrigues.[art 1]

A magic-devouring cloak that was used by an assassin to eliminate the unscrupulous Den of Druja, Kamaljiori told Vox Machina that, at that time, Cabal's Ruin was worn by a merchant-warrior with a missing eye in Ank'Harel.[5][6]  Before the party reached Cabal's Ruin, Dr. Anna Ripley acquired it first[7]—likely after murdering its previous owner, Mistress Asharru.[presumed] After Vox Machina killed Ripley, the cloak was given to Percival de Rolo.[8] The cloak was seemingly found in its awakened state while in Ripley's possession, and it became exalted after Percy used it to absorb some of the spell Meteor Swarm cast by Raishan.[9]

Deathwalker's Ward Edit

Fan art of Deathwalker's Ward entombed with Purvan Suul, by Joma Cueto.[art 3]

The Deathwalker's Ward is a set of studded leather armor that belonged to a Champion of the Raven Queen. It rested in the Champion's tomb, which used to stand to the west of Vasselheim until it eventually sunk into the ground as the topography shifted over time, now submerged beneath a lake known as the Marrowglade Loch.[14]

Vox Machina obtained the Deathwalker's Ward from the corpse of a former Champion once known as Purvan Suul before ritualistically giving his name to the Raven Queen. Lady Kima nearly died in a battle with a beholder when it used its Telekinetic Ray to toss her down a deep hole. Vex'ahlia was killed when Percy attempted to remove the Deathwalker's Ward from the Champion's sarcophagus, triggering a powerful necrotic trap. Kashaw, with the aid of Percy, Zahra and Vax'ildan, was able to revivify Vex. The party then successfully retrieved the Deathwalker's Ward.

Possession of the Deathwalker's Ward passed to Vax'ildan, who reluctantly began donning it in order to acquire the allegiance of the Champion's wolf ally, Galdric[15], but Vax removed the armor before it was completely donned[16]. After a dream given to him by the Raven Queen, Vax'ildan began wearing the Deathwalker's Ward reluctantly. He later agreed to serve as her champion, becoming a paladin of the Raven Queen.[17]

The Deathwalker's Ward was the first vestige to be awakened, identified as such by Gilmore after their fight with Hotis at Whitestone and the armor's power of flight was activated,[18][19] and later by Headmaster James Crayon at Ank'Harel[20]. It appeared to have awakened as a consequence of Vax'ildan becoming the new Champion of the Raven Queen.

Fenthras, Wrath of the Fey Warden Edit

Fenthras-Wrath-of-the-Fey-Warden-by-David-Rodrigues

Fan art of Fenthras, Wrath of the Fey Warden, by David Rodrigues.[art 4]

A bow that felled titans, Fenthras was lost in the Feywild during the Calamity, the final battle before the Divergence.[25][26]  It became the heart of a cancerous tree corrupting the verdant land there.[6]  The elven name "Fenthras" has its roots in two ancient Elvish words meaning "protector" and "growth".[27]

An archfey named Saundor lived in the Feywild, wielding Fenthras as his personal weapon.  Betrayed thousands of years ago by the woman he loved, his heart became corrupted—and he, in turn, corrupted the Shademirk Bog.[28]  After slaying Saundor, Vex'ahlia claimed ownership of Fenthras.[29]

Fenthras's handle is wrapped in a very tight, dark brown-black leather.  At the cusp where nocked arrows rest against the handle, there is a golden-bronze metallic inlay.  The rest of the bow is a curved, verdant green, jungle vine texture as if building on itself as a series of natural leaf scales.  As it curves to the ends of the recurve bow, it flexes and shifts on its own, tightening and loosening of its own accord.  As an arrow is nocked, the bow tightens immediately; when the string is pulled back, it takes no strength to do so, as if the bow pulls the string back itself.  When fired, the arrows shoot off at an incredible speed and the bow flexes forward with such intensity that it makes a roaring "woosh" sound.[30]

As Vex'ahlia went to sleep following the exertions of the Nine Hells and the Grey Hunt, Fenthras seemed to grow and become more refined in its definition of shape, later revealed to have entered its exalted state.[31]

Fan art of the Mythcarver, by David Rodrigues.[art 5]

A legendary longsword with a silvered blade, the Mythcarver resonates with musical tones.  It once belonged to the White Duke and many master bards before him.[37]

Before the White Duke died, he gifted the Mythcarver to Kamaljiori, who in turn awarded it to Vox Machina to aid in their fight against the Chroma Conclave.[38] Possession of the Mythcarver passed to Scanlan Shorthalt.[39]

While fighting a pit fiend named Ghurrix in the City of Brass, Scanlan managed to bring the sword to its full power by remembering and acting on his promise to Kaylie that he would stay alive.[40] The glowing blade granted him four consecutive attacks with advantage, with which he slew the fiend.[41]

Plate-of-the-Dawnmartyr-by-David-Rodrigues

Fan art of the Plate of the Dawnmartyr, by David Rodrigues.[art 6]

Also known as the "Beacon of Protection" to the chosen of Pelor, Kamaljiori told Vox Machina that the Plate of the Dawnmartyr was gathering dust on a wall in the City of Brass in the Elemental Plane of Fire.[44]  The armor was a trophy won by a fire giant in a card game from the Suutan bloodline that once donned it.[6]  Beautiful silver scrolling and priceless cut rubies adorn the brass-and-gold armor.  It was originally worn by the High Priest of Pelor, Duana, as she fell in the battle of Ghor Dranas.[45] 

Vox Machina met with the owner of the Plate of the Dawnmartyr, Juuraiel, in the City of Brass. Scanlan challenged her to a card game to try and win the armor, but lost, and instead the fire giant won Vox Machina as slaves. However, she promised to grant them their freedom, as well as the Plate of the Dawnmartyr, if they killed a pit fiend named Ghurrix who had slain her lover.[46] Vox Machina set out to slay Ghurrix, succeeded, and returned to Juuraiel, who fulfilled her end of the deal by freeing them and giving them the Plate of the Dawnmartyr from her collection. It was immediately donned by Pike Trickfoot.[45]

A staff born from Melora's breath, Kamaljiori told Vox Machina that the Spire of Conflux was devoured, along with its previous owner, by a goristro named Yenk in the Endless Maze of the Abyss.[48][6]

Scanlan used a Gate spell scroll to pull Yenk from the Abyss, using him as bait for Vorugal in the hopes that one of them would kill the other. The two giant creatures managed to do significant damage to each other. Vox Machina, with the aid of Lady Kima and Raishan, managed to finish them off. Once the battle ended, the Spire of Conflux was retrieved from Yenk's eviscerated belly and given to Keyleth.[49]

According to Kamaljiori, the Titanstone Knuckles were taken from the brutalized corpse of their proud owner and worn by a terrible half-giant turned tyrant in Westruun.[52]  According to Grog Strongjaw, his uncle Kevdak possessed the Titanstone Knuckles as one of his two prized weapons.[53]  It is unknown if Kevdak understood their true origin or power.  After Vox Machina successfully dispatched Kevdak, the large gauntlets were passed to Grog.

The Titanstone Knuckles became exalted after Grog just barely defeated Earthbreaker Groon within the Trial Forge, the temple of Kord in Vasselheim. Two beams of light, similar to lightning strikes, came down from the ceiling of the temple, hitting the gauntlets and causing them to glow.[54]

A blade forged from metal pulled from the Far Realm, Whisper was the center of many dark rituals.  According to Kamaljiori, it was lost with a ship called The Shrew at the bottom of the Ozmit Sea, sunken near an island of glass in a storm three hundred years ago.[56][6]  Scanlan realized that this island was the Isle of Glintshore,[57] part of an archipelago that edges the continent of Marquet due north of Ank'Harel, beyond the Mountain of Gifts.[7]
