I could do with some help here – I like the idea behind this magic item, but not the execution. Any thoughts on how it could be revised?
A small ball of lead suspended on a delicate silver wire. When held aloft, it will dispense a steady trickle of salt which never seems to run out. When suspended and left to naturally swing for an hour or so, the salt will eventually form a pattern on the ground.
When you consult the pattern formed by Focault’s Pendulum, roll+INT. On a 10+, you may ask the GM all three questions and they must answer truthfully. On a 7-9, pick two. On a 6-, only one.
– What plane of existence or physical realm am I in?
– Which direction is north?
– Where is the nearest ocean?
(If you saw my preview earlier this week, no surprises for what inspired this particular item!)
