Use in Investiture
According to a 2015 interview with Brandon, the Moon Scepter can translate symbols from one magic system to another. He has also said that the artifact would allow using Sel magic outside the planet "less daunting".
Shai wanted to swap the real scepter with her own Forged copy because it was the most famous pieces of art in the whole empire. She was betrayed by Hoid, the Imperial Fool, and imprisoned. It is unknown if Hoid actually ended up trading the scepter with the Forged version. The scepter is important to Hoid for unexplained reasons, though it likely has something to do with its symbol-translation properties.
