So I was perusing the wiki when I stumbled upon this:

The Shadow of Ao was a powerful artifact said to have been lost after the sundering of Abeir-Toril. Abilities:
Legend had that the Shadow of Ao had the power to split the world in two.

This seems like its a pretty major artifact! So are there any lore or stats for it? Thank you in advance.

Any edition is fine i'm just curious because nothing really turned up when I looked for it. Link:https://forgottenrealms.fandom.com/wiki/Shadow_of_Ao

The wiki already has all the information

I looked it up in the source material (namely the Forgotten Realms Campaign Guide) and the only mention of the item is seen below

Forgotten Realms Campaign Guide, p.210

Unfortunately there is no description and it gets only mentioned once. Furthermore the "Ao" from the item is a powerful god, so it is likely that a very powerful item with a description of "twin the world anew" named after him has no concrete stats.

There is more lore for Ao available here.

    \$\begingroup\$ It talks about Melabrauth sending his servants to look for it under the history tab for the Shadow of Ao, but this seems to confirm that no other official lore exists. \$\endgroup\$ Sep 19, 2021 at 20:27
