Kuroth's Quill is an artifact, a quill pen made from a white feather taken from the wing of a full-grown male griffon, with a writing nib made of gold. The Quill's user can magically read any writing in any language. In an alternate version presented in the Book of Artifacts, the user can alter reality simply by using the Quill to write whatever he wishes to happen on a piece of parchment.
Kuroth is said to have stolen the Quill from the tower of the lich Baalice, who created it. After Kuroth, the Quill passed from hand to hand, including a caravan driver and a merchant named Sharmana, who accidentally used it to turn his daughter into a shambling undead horror.
Some legends suggest that if the Quill copies all of the millions of texts in Gresil's abyssal library, it will be worn down into a non-magical nub through such continuous usage.
