1158 DR

The Flame of the Spirit is seen by Fargoth Labbard, a rooftop sneak-thief in Elturel in the hands of a Tymoran adventurer whom Fargoth promptly robbed. His booty burns Fargoth badly when he tries to examine it in his rooftop hideaway. His arms fell into ashes as he collapses. Another thief who robbed him dies in agony.

The Flame bounces away form the burning body when it crashes to the cobbles of an Elturian street and is scooped up by a servant of the local mage Helgarth, who wraps it in his cloak. Helgarth examines the gem carefully, and when he is sure that its magic would not aid him, he placed it in an open chest, as a decoy for thieves, inside the window of his tower that always stood open to admit his flying gargoyle servants.

Over the next three decades, the Flame slays 10 thieves, and sorely wounded at least three others.
