Need background for Demonstone
I need to figure out where the Demonstone came from, and who created it, IMC. Does anyone have any good ideas for me? Bonus points if you can phrase it in verse.

Cyr the Rogue, who is currently under its effects in my game, just murdered an orcish family in the camp near Rastor, and set it up to look like some "dwarf supremecists" from Rastor did it, in an attempt to get the orcs to leave the area. I think the cleric in my party may be about to cast a Divination to figure out who did it, and I'd like to misdirect him by saying that the "responsible party" is the force behind the demonstone, rather than Cyr.

The main reason for doing this is that we're currently doing a PBEM interlude in the game; our next real session won't be til the end of the month, and I don't want to run PvP combat in email (even if it is likely to be all subdual damage). I figure what will happen is they'll get a reference to the creator of the stone from the divination, and won't recognize it, so they won't be able to do anything about that until they consult a sage in Verbobonc (which is their ultimate destination for this PBEM, and where we plan to play the next game session).

Re: Need background for Demonstone
I imagined it to be the charred, petrified bone fragment from a long-dead uber-demon (perhaps dating back to the god-wars that left Tharizdun imprisoned - assuming that some evil deities (demon-gods) fought beside their dread Dark God). The multiple owners of this bone-fragment during the last 1000 or so years have unconsciously and compulsively rubbed it into its current demonic shape.

That's my take on it, which certainly isn't official but it is sufficiently nasty enough for me.

Prose? I am not good at verse. Sorry.

Demonstone
Ah...Trithereon has hit upon something....

I think it should be the heart of a balor, petrified into coal-black adamantium. I would imagine in a world where Healing spells are prevalent, internal anatomy is very limited, i.e. no one knows its a heart (its not a valentine heart). I suppose a Heal check of DC 25-30 would be appropriate (demon heart and all).

I have added the power to "Taint" an individual. Search for "Demonstone", there are a couple of threads that talk about it...
