Perilous Jack pulls the pieces of Engraved Shard from his pouch and offers them to the wizards.

Serra accepts the artifacts doubtfully, turns them over once or twice, and passes them to Dark Simon, shaking her head. Simon seems more sure of himself.

“A machine component,” he says “or part of one, anyway. There should be a third piece, and when connected they make a disk, which is inserted into the body of a Golem. The markings are instructions, readable only by the particular Golem for whom the Disk was created. Once the Disk is inserted, the Golem will act in whatever way the markings direct. I may be able to extrapolate some of the missing parts from what I have, but it would be very helpful to have the entire thing. See if you can find a third piece.”

Jack nods and Dark Simon pockets the Engraved Shards.

Remove the Engraved Shards from the Pouch of Ghrul. Add the following to Jack’s Journal: I have collected two Engraved Shards, which Dark Simon tells me are pieces of a Command Disk for a Golem. With a third piece, the Command Disk will be complete.

Turn to 88.
