    Cup & Talisman of Al'Akbar
    Posted on Wed, June 08, 2005 by Dongul
    saqurtmudyn writes "The greatest of gifts bestowed by the gods of the Paynims to their most devout servant, the Cup and Talisman of Al'Akbar were lost to the dim reaches of antiquity. But Al'Akbar's imams and caliphs still recount the beauty of these treasured items. Herein these revered artifacts are illustrated in stunning detail.

    The images below are renditions of the fabled Cup and Talisman of Al'Akbar, respectively. The cup is based on a painting by Jeff Easley that graces the cover of the AD&D 1st Edition adventure I9 Day of Al'Akbar. The talisman is the artist's conception of the artifact.

    Let me be the first to say these are truly wonderful illustrations. The subject matter is excellent and the level of detail shows that you put alot of heart into the project. That you rendered such a stunning Talisman from little reference also says alot to your work. Any chance we will see more GH related illustrations soon?

    Yep, Saqurtmudyn did an awesome job. I was amazed when I saw them. As a side note, these images were scheduled to post last February. But, Saqurtmudyn sent us map images by mistake - which were also remarkable. I was elated to see hm contact us and offer the above images of the Cup and Talisman.

    Saqurtmudyn did run a couple of other ideas for art by us, but I won't spill the beans. But keep watching. We'll talk to him and see if we can get him to render some more amazing art.

    If it please the Canonfire editors, I could send other renderings. Some are specific for my campaign, but others should be useful to many DM. Thank you for your kind words.

    I am new to this site, but I must say, OUTSTANDING job!!!  I have a cleric in my campaign who is just learning of the Cup and Talisman, and I think it will play heavily in his character development.  Dreams featuring the items will now have a frame of reference.  Thank you!!!
