Alaundo the Seer was the singular sage whose prophecies proved to be true over the years. Citing a seer from past ages that Alaundo called "the T Source",[1] the prophecies he made included the creation of the Bhaalspawn and the creation of the Seven Scourges.[citation needed]

These things also I have observed: that knowledge of our world is to be nurtured like a precious flower, for it is the most precious thing we have. Wherefore guard the word written and heed words unwritten - and set them down ere they fade . . . learn then, well, the arts of reading, writing, and listening true, and they will lead you to the greatest art of all: understanding.
— Alaundo of Candlekeep[2]

History[]

Upon his death, Candlekeep became a haven for the veneration of his prophecies and knowledge.[3] Alaundo arrived at Candlekeep in 75 DR.[4]

His skull was supposedly stolen shortly after his death and was a priceless relic venerated by the faithful of Deneir, Oghma, and Savras. It was greatly sought after by the illithids of Oryndoll, and rumors of its existence and whereabouts around 1370 DR caused an increase in illithid activity on the southern shores of the Deepwash. It was said that the bearer of the skull could speak directly with Alaundo using a speak with dead spell.[5]
