Heaven and Earth
The Sky Stone
One race, the Killoren, while fleeing towards the Dwarven Kingdom found a very large quartz like stone along the journey. It was found in a crater and was warm to the touch. It gave off an energy and the people believed it was related to the larger object that fell from the sky and hit the earth. They brought it to the Dwarven Kingdom as a gift. The size of the object is about half the size of a man and weighs several hundred pounds. It has been in the Dwarven Kingdom ever since. It glows in the dark and after being studied for years, the dwarves found that they could tap into some of it’s energy. It was placed on a tall pedestal in the central square. Pipes run through the inside of the pedestal and the energy from the stone is used to heat water to make steam that powers some basic mining equipment. Everyone refers to it as “The sky stone”. Over the centuries it’s energy seems to be lessening, almost like a battery being used up. It still works but nobody knows how much longer it will last.
