The Broken Staff artifact can be found in the south-central part of Sea of Núrnen.
Fragment, Wooden Walking stick, early Third Age
Some great force rent this Wizard's staff asunder. Fashioned from a sapling, this gnarled staff served as walking stick, magical rod and weapon for a wandering Wizard. What became of its owner and how it was broken is a mystery.
"Funny thing, that. They told us their names, plenty of times. But we all forgot. To a man, we forgot. It was like they didn't want us remembering. After a while, they were just the two Istari, and sometimes, the big one and the little one.
Can't say how I can't remember. I remember the bigger one telling us stories of a Goblin city, of a man who could turn himself into a bear, of the time when… well, I guess it didn't matter too much to him that some of his stories needed some cleaning up, or would scare a dead man out of his grave.
When the bigger one left, he took his cane. But he left a walking stick behind, with all these little notches cut into it. He was keeping track of something, for sure."
