Nystul collects the blackrock chests of the FoA

    Yesterday, Nystul managed to find a way to open the magically locked chests in which the Followers of Armageddon had hidden blackrock across the realm. With a troop of royal guards to accompany him, Nystul then went around the realm to open and collect each chest.

    When asked why the FOA had placed blackrock all over the land in chests, Nystul replied:

"It is my belief that the leader of the Followers of Armageddon, known so far only as "W," wished to help ensure the safety of his blackrock shards. By so distributing them, it would seem that his logic was that even if one or two were discovered or stolen, it would be unlikely to loose them all. And all he needed to do was have his henchmen go collect them when needed."

    Nystul told me that even though he did retrieve a blackrock or two from the chests, he by no means recovered them all. He is not yet sure what plans the Followers of Armageddon have for the blackrock, but he will continue to seek answers by researching the strange substance further.
