Wayfinder, Standard (empty) A small magical device patterned off ancient relics of the Azlanti, a wayfinder is typically made from silver and bears gold accents. With a command word, you can use a wayfinder to shine (as the light spell). The wayfinder also acts as a nonmagical (magnetic) compass, granting you a +2 circumstance bonus on Survival checks to avoid becoming lost. All wayfinders include a small indentation designed to hold a single ioun stone. An ioun stone slotted in this manner grants you its normal benefits (as if it were orbiting your head), but frequently reveals entirely new powers due to the magic of the wayfinder itself (see Seeker of Secrets page 51).

Remicus’ parents were slaves to a Katapeshi merchant living in Cheliax. As an average sized foreign child slave, he was often bullied and mistreated by Chelaxian youths. As he approached his teen years, he began to grow and fill out. His size and angry attitude quickly earned him a place in the violent, often fatal bloodsport arenas. There he learned to channel his temperament into the arts of combat and quickly rose above his peers as a talented warrior, earning a respectable and steady income for his master.
While honing his skills he learned of Gorum, Our Lord in Iron. Worship of the Battle Lord was outlawed in Cheliax, but there was a strong underground following among the gladiators.
His life surely would have ended early, in a blood pit under some unnamed tavern, but his aging master truly cared for his slaves and since he had no family, he chose to free them as his death approached. After moving the household back to Qadira, he worked with the church of Saerenrae to have Remicus and his parents officially freed, along with a dozen or so other slaves.
Remicus’ family moved with him back to settle in Varisia and opened a small shop in Sandpoint.
Remicus has spent the last year on the Storval Plateau, getting to know the ways of his people, and has recently returned to Sandpoint to see his parents.
