Kharid-ib detail

The Kharid-ib is a large diamond which is first in the possession of the Emir Shah's treasure vault. Lady Keli seeks the Kharid-ib and attempts to get it as ransom by kidnapping Prince Ali. The name loosely translates to The Heart of the Sun.

In Diamond in the Rough, Osman hints that there is a real and a fake Kharid-ib. The fake is on display to catch any thieves, while the real -ib is hidden within the Heavy weight the player uses on the Scale of Het. The Kharid-ib will emit a high pitched tone when it is near the presence of a sundial of Het, Crondis, Apmeken, and Scabaras.

It also appears to house the consciousness of a powerful being. Several times when Ozan and the adventurer have the gem, it will temporarily take control of other people, and implore the two to return the gem to Al-Kharid. Those through which the Kharid-ib speak have no memory of ever being controlled.

Amascut's dialogue in Diamond in the Rough states that she feels she's been searching for this all her life, noting it is small, hard, and cold.

When asked in a recent Lore Campfire "What exactly is the Kharid-Ib?" Mod Osborne replied: "Mod Rowley would hate it if I revealed this. It's important. Very important." This could mean that it is an elder artefact (there is one known to be in the desert), but is speculation only. However, when asked this question directly in another Lore Camfire Mod Rowley stated this that this was not the case, leaving its true nature a mystery for now.
