According to legend, the Celestial Emperor bade the Lords of Karma to place these stones throughout Kara-Tur. They were later discovered and used by heroes and villains all through time; stories told of the remarkable exploits they performed with the aid of warfu stones.

The warfu stones are presumably intended to be an eastern version of the ioun stones of regular D&D, but a connection between the two is unknown. For organization purposes, this wiki treats them as unrelated to ioun stones. Wong Fei's ioun stone, being from Kara-Tur, might be considered to be a warfu stone.
