    The Yellowskull

    I don't have my copy of ToEE handy; in fact it's tucked away in a box about 1,000 miles away. In light of that, can anyone give me a quick (or detailed) rundown of the Yellowskull's powers?

    * No paladin or Good cleric can touch it.
    * Possessor can detect lie, know alignment, and poison at will.
    * Neither Zuggtmoy nor Iuz can harm the possessor, directly or through an agent.
    * Possessor knows how to operate the throne in ToEE upper level, area 3.
    * Possessor has Charisma 20 (or -3 when angry) with respect to C/Evil creatures
    * User loses 1 point of Charisma (to non-C/Evil creatures) whenever above Awe Power is invoked.
    * Zuggtmoy and Iuz know identity and location of possessor, and can persuade him to give up the artifact (10% chance per point of Charisma lost).

    The elemental gems grant the following additional powers when mounted in the Orb:

    Thanks Prata. The location of the gems - they were found in the elemental fanes/demiplanes, is that correct? Man, it's been a long time since I've played that adventure...

    Yes, each gem is found in a non-corresponding elemental node.

    I am curious what if anything happened to the Elemental Power Gems after the Yellowskull was destroyed. I haven't read RttToEE, so I don't know if they come into play again or not.

    I am currently running a campaign in Greyhawk and I assumed that the Gems were shattered into several pieces with the defeat of Zuggtmoy and Iuz. A player in my campaign is searching for the shards of the Fire Power Gem so that she and the rest of the party can travel to the Plane of Fire to retrieve a dwarven artifact that is now in the possession of the Sultan. The ability to survive on the plane of fire is the only ability I left in the shards in my game and i had the gem split into shards so that more than one party member could safely travel.

    I am just curious what is cannon of the remains of the power Gems.

    AFAIK, it's never detailed. I've got RttToEE, but don't recall seeing anything in there about the gem fragments.
