Spoiler warning: Contains plot elements from multiple books in the series.

Ships of Merior

Third Age 5645: After Dakar's escapades in Jaelot, Arithon requests the use of Anithael's instruments from Sethvir by way of the earth link. His intent is to speed Halliron's voyage to Shand by sea rather than land. Sethvir grants this request, which permits Arithon access to blue water sailing, but has the side effect of reviving the old arts of navigation, restoring deep water shipping, taking the pressure off expanding coastal ports for galley havens, and taking further pressure off land-based trade since sail is faster.[1] The instruments are delivered by Asandir after the escape from Jaelot, and Arithon uses them to gain the trust of Captain Dhirken aboard the Black Drake. For her services, Dhirken is given the cross-staff as a generous gift.

Warhost of Vastmark

Third Age 5647: After Dhirken is captured by Lysaer's forces and executed, Diegan delivers the cross-staff to Arithon at the ransom exchange as a petty, vindictive ploy to rile him.
