A twisted piece of wood grips a glowing adra chunk with root-like tendrils. Something about the staff resonates in your soul. When you hold it, you hear the distant whisper of wind through the trees.

An Aedyran explorer in Eir Glanfath came across a row of adra pillars near what is now Solace Vale. Having never seen such a display of living adra, he thought immediately of the Ine Sycthrua that houses the souls of Aedyran nobility and decided that these pillars most surely hold something magnificent. He chiseled a chunk of adra from the growth and brought it back to Dunryd for further study.

The adra chunk was placed in a staff and given to Lady Riigfald, one of the ferconyng's favorite courtiers. Lady Riigfald was a talented dabbler in the magical arts and infamous at court for her clever but ostentatious spellwork. However, the Greenstone Staff was her undoing -- she accidentally summoned a blight. The creature was quickly dispatched, but not before it had ruined the imperial consort's finest robes. Though many historians believe it was the ferconyng's untimely chuckle that doomed Lady Riigfald, the damage was done, and propriety demanded her removal from court. Lord and Lady Riigfald were sent to a distant but comfortable estate in the young colonial capital of New Dunryd. Despite her husband's protests, Lady Riigfald refused to surrender the Greenstone Staff.

Rumor of the Greenstone Staffs existence -- and the adra originally stolen from Eir Glanfath -- eventually reached the Glanfathan tribes. The subject became a convenient grievance for the anamfatha and a stumbling block for Admeth Hadret. When resentments flared over the flouting of the Ten Years Treaties, Hadret employed a team of Glanfathan mind hunters to investigate the plunder of the ruins. When they found evidence of the ferconyng's involvement, Hadret gifted the Greenstone Staff to the anamfatha as a symbolic but important gesture.
