A [[incandescent blue ioun stone (githzerai)|unique]] ''[[incandescent blue ioun stone]]'' surfaced around [[1311 DR]] in [[Icewind Dale]]. In a past age, the [[githzerai]] craftsman [[Bashenee]] had created it for a great githzerai [[monk]], who later fell in battle with [[githyanki]]. It circulated among them for many years, until it was given to the [[mind flayer]] [[Oinchack'olp]], who treated it as a prized possession. Oinchack'olp was roaming the [[Underdark]] beneath Icewind Dale when he lost it, and some [[drider]]s found it. Oinchack'olp ordered some passing adventurers to retrieve it.<ref name="IWD2"/>

By the 14{{th}} century, ''ioun stones'' were much desired, yet few people—even those who had them—knew where they had originated.

Only some sages of the arcane such as [[Prismal the Outrageous]] knew something of Congenio Ioun's story.<ref name="EM-vII-p613"/>
