Lore

Although the Old Ones viewed them as simple coffee mugs, Ancient Vessels became a subject of significant speculation to 31st-century intellectuals. Their use as a mere drinking vessel was viewed as ludicrous, due to the craftsmanship of the mugs; instead, they were assumed to have a crucial role in sacred rituals. For example, Studious Palas was adamantly convinced that the vessels were meant to be used in sets, as part of a beard-shaving ritual, with each vessel holding a different substance used during shaving (water, lotion, etc.).
