The Valley of Shards is a long shallow valley near the headwaters of the Asp River in Osirion. The valley's floor is full of shards of more than a thousand pots. The shards are inscribed with Ancient Osiriani hieroglyphs which seem to deal with magic, both divine and arcane. A small group of hermits study the shards, attempting to piece them together into a coherent message. The gnolls roaming the region either haven't noticed the hermits or have left them unharmed on purpose.
