A Thread of Silver

From PathfinderWiki

The Technic League of Numeria, a shadowy organization of arcanists who study the Silver Mount in Starfall, recorded an early survey of the Silver Mount's chambers and artifacts in the book A Thread of Silver.12 Despite great effort on the League's part, the original copy was stolen, and new copies have made their way out of the country.34

The book is prized for its insights into Numerian technology (especially robots), supposedly surpassing even Pathfinder Chronicles Vol. 3 in detail. The League is known to hire assassins to kill anyone who possesses or reads the book for fear that they might reveal closely guarded secrets.2


The original book was written in 4515 AR by Technic League member Lucius Worznik, stolen from their collection in 4625 AR, and never recovered.5

Specific copies

One copy was reportedly sold by a traveling bookseller, Sal Durivan, in Eleder. A Pathfinder Society agent is rumored to be among the book's potential buyers.34
