Shards of War are one of the few remaining crystals from the Searing in Ascalon. An old commemorative plaque is at the base of the shard. It reads:
Crystal remnant from the Searing. The ruthless Charr used thei
magic to destroy much of civilization.
There efforts were rebuffed – King Adelbern remained in power and the
charr will soon be driven back.
