A Sihedron medallion is an artifact from the ancient empire of Thassilon. It is generally found in the form of a silver disk and worn around the neck on a leather cord.[1] The medallions come in many sizes, tailored to the creatures to whom they belong.[2] The disk is inscribed with the Sihedron rune, a seven-pointed star which symbolized the seven virtues of rule of early Thassilon. With the decline of the empire the rune became more closely associated with the seven vices and with rune magic in general.[1]

The medallion gives the wearer increased resistance to many forms of danger and allows him or her to draw temporary life force from it. If placed on a dead body, a Sihedron medallion will keep the body from decomposing. What few suspect is that they also serves as a scrying connection for the runelords of Thassilon.[1]

It is known that these medallions are used by followers of the runelords to identify each other, as they are generally only given out to trusted individuals.[3][4]
