The Cornerstone of the World

“And in the Year of the Golden Light, it was so decreed that a great cathedral be raised. The cornerstone of this holy place was to be carved from the translucent stone Antyrael, named for the angel who shared his power with the Horadrim. In the Year of Drawing Shadows, the ground shook and the cathedral shattered and fell. As the building of catacombs and castles began and man stood against the ravages of the Sin War, the ruins were scavenged for their stones. And so it was that the Cornerstone vanished from the eyes of man. The Stone was of this world – and of all worlds – as the Light is both within all things and beyond all things. Light and unity are the products of this holy foundation, a unity of purpose and a unity of possession.”

The Cornerstone of the World

The Cornerstone of the World (the COW) is found in a room on level one of the Crypt, with 0 gold pieces on it. Though you cannot interact with it, when you drop an item on it, the above message will appear.

The “unity of possession” mentioned is the actual purpose of the COW; it allows you to transfer an item between Hellfire characters. The item you drop – triggering the message – will appear on all games, regardless of character. Hence, if your Rogue drops a Great Sword on the COW, when you save the game and start playing with your Warrior, he will find the same Great Sword on the COW.

There are bugs, where either the item does not appear, or the item changes between games. Note that the COW does not work if both characters are saved-gamed in the Crypt when the item is dropped, so the second character has to go down into the Crypt from Town before getting the item.
