“Perhaps a map or directions to one those artefacts,” Kaul suggests, having come in during the conversation, “or something else of value. I don’t know about these Shistivari, but I do know something of Earth history; people often cached valuables when they had to flee their homes, intending to come back when things had settled down. Scholars have even found rare writings, describing the locations. Or, perhaps, information to a lost city or other settlement,” speculatively, “even a tome. An intact site like that, that hasn’t been touched by looters yet, could be very valuable to thieves.”Dublon thinks about that. "There's no one thing I can think of that stands out," he says. "But the Shistivari controlled an immense territory in their day. They had all the apparatus of a star empire at their disposal. We don't find a lot of their artifacts left after so long a time, but space is, after all, very large. I imagine one might start with imagining what this Llares would imagine to be valuable and go from there."
"One might start," observes Velto dryly, "with finding out just what the core contains, and imagining how he would expect to make use of it."
