The Avatar acquired the Jawbone from Erstam the mage. Erstam, after admitting to possessing it, wanted the Avatar to retrieve a Phoenix egg, so that he could begin his experiments to create life. Having acquired the egg, and having helped Erstam to create Boydon, a Frankenstein-like creature, Erstam gave the Avatar the key to a shed where the Jawbone was found.
Serpent Teeth Edit
The Jawbone alone is useless without the Serpent Teeth. Each tooth corresponds to a gate, and each gate is unlocked when a tooth is added to the Jawbone. Erstam once had a full set of teeth, but most of them were stolen by the mages of Moonshade, who thought of it as a test. Erstam gave the Avatar the teeth he had, leaving him to find the remainder.
- The availability of the Serpent Jawbone and the teeth are engineered to control to where the party can travel as the plot progresses.
