The Taper of Sacrifice is one of the eight talismans of Sir Cabirus, representing the virtue of Sacrifice. Crafted by the finest artisans of Minoc, this special candle once illuminated the Shrine of Sacrifice. It is special in the fact that it never burns down, making it a never ending lightsource. It is a strong symbol of virtue.
The Taper of Sacrifice was kept by the Knights of the Crux Ansata until it was stolen by the mad Zak. The Avatar found Zak in Ultima Underworld I in the third level of the Abyss, and traded the Taper for lightsources and food. It was cast into the lava of the Abyss later, to banish to Slasher of Veils.
