|Scepter of Ages|
Source: Artifacts & Legends, pg(s). 42
When Earthfall was approaching, Runelord Xanderghul planned to use the Scepter of Ages to travel forward in time and avoid the cataclysm, but he ran out of time before he could locate the Scepter of Ages.
The Scepter of Ages eventually fell into the hands of Runelord Alaznist, who has recently woken and had previously studied Xanderghul's research. She used it to unlock the refuge where Xanderghul slumbered, hidden from Earthfall, and killed him. With the Scepter of Ages, Alaznist travelled back in time to Thassilon seven times to absorb mythic power and arrange for the arrival of the Oliphaunt of Jandelay in the future to threaten Varisia. She was eventually confronted by a group of heroes armed with the Sihedron, who disrupted her manipulation of temporal power by using time-locked energy harvested from Crystilan. Alaznist used the Scepter of Ages to trap them within Crystilan, but had to release the artifact into an unknown time and place in order to avoid being trapped herself.
