Steel became etched with the corruption blood of the dead gods. They were eventually discovered by a Nevarran woman. She sold them to a blacksmith, not knowing what they truly were, for ten bits. The smith, however, knew that he had purchased more than scrap metal, and fashioned the shards into three identical daggers: The Thorn of the Dead Gods.
