History

On the annual Rainbow Festival of Beerburgh, the rain poured and the sun shone, as it always did at this time. Seven rainbows appeared, stretching over the horizon as far as the eye could see. As dictated by tradition, eight Heroes were to head to the end of a rainbow to supposedly find a pot of gold. Nobody ever found the end of a rainbow and all this was known to be old rubbish but everyone is comforted by traditions so they carried on and did it anyway. After a day of running towards the end of a rainbow, they were shocked to find that there was actually an end to a rainbow, but what was so remarkable was that not just one, but all of the seven rainbows in the sky all ended at this one point on a small remote hill. Hidden in the tall grass, all the ends of the rainbows converged upon a lonely wooden shield. The Heroes, too shell shocked to make sense of any of this, all left the shield behind and returned to their families, never to tell anyone of this strange occurrence. twenty one years later, a wandering trader rediscovered the shield, but by now had absorbed all the magic from the numerous rainbows which had ended on top of it all those years. Not knowing of its potential, the trader foolishly sold it off. Later, the shield travelled around from hero to trader to hero to hero to trader... And so on. The whereabouts of the shield at any one time are unknown it changes hands so often. Many duplicates have been produced, but nobody has managed to copy it exactly. However, an alchemist recently managed to clone the shield using an ancient potion he allegedly found in the tomb of Cryrn.
