Forgotten Realms Artifact Hunters: Reassembling The Avatar of Torm
Shou Lung is a country in the continent of Kara-Tur, which is located to the east of Faerûn. It is arguably the largest and most powerful nation in the world, boasting technology which could one day surpass that of Lantan. People from Shou Lung are referred to as Shou.
Lying between Kara-Tur and Faerûn is a Great Wall of stone. According to legend, a wu jen was tasked by the emperor to find a way to keep the Tuigan hordes from raiding Shou Lung’s northern provinces. The wu jen stole the Jade Mirror from the sea dragon Pao Hu Jen, whose body was thousands of kilometers long. The wu jen led the dragon on a chase across the border, and at a certain point stopped and held up the Jade Mirror to the dragon’s eyes, which instantly turned him to stone. After his petrified body fell to the ground, the emperor had his engineers carve fortifications into it so that it could serve them as a defensive wall.
