The Archive of Curiosities was part of the complex of the Palace of the Enlightened Throne in Huzuz in 1367 DR.[note 1][1]


Unique gifts presented to the Grand Caliph and other treasures were displayed here for the public to see. Some of the more interesting items included a pirate flag taken by the Grand Caliph himself during his adventuring days, a jade throne presented by the emperor of Shou Lung, a magical harp that played music on command, and a large tapestry depicting a king with a purple dragon on his shield.[1]

The Grand Caliph desperately wanted to add a genuine Halruaan skyship to his collection, and was willing to pay handsomely for the acquisition.[1]
