The Astral Prism Heist


After that dream I had about the githyanki threat to our Accelerated Grand Design, my research led me to pore through the old archives left behind in Moonrise Towers by the High Heralds. These records included some surprising early sources, both githyanki and githzerai, that mentioned a relic or artefact called the Astral Prison or Prism. Though the source of its power was unstated, this artefact was reputed to be able to project a field that disrupted illithid psionics. Such an artefact would clearly be an existential threat to both our Absolute ambitions and the Grand Design. All three of the ancient sources agreed that the Astral Prism was in the hands of the githyanki lich-queen Vlaakith. Thus was born the plan to send a tadpoled strike team in a regrown nautiloid piloted by the Emperor to steal the Astral Prism from Vlaakith.
