This ring was pried from the finger of a dead dark elf priestess, who fled to the surface world after being betrayed by her kinswomen. It was worn for a time by the Hermit of Stangle Rock to defend his cave from annoying intruders; he disappeared from his cave some years back, and the ring disappeared with him. His long dead corpse was found in a grotto protected by a sea hag.
