Only one quarry in all the lands of Newerth yields up the stone that can be used to make Wards of Revelation -- mystic columns that reveal anything that passes nearby, even creatures that normally would be invisible. The art of carving these menhirs is a close-kept secret of a single family of craftsmen, fortunately one large enough not to be at risk of a daemonic raid.
