Boordrum the Eyeless, architect of the spherical Kattatonian Palace, tested the magical principles that made that wonder of the world possible on smaller spheres. He considered them by-products of his work and threw them away, but they were salvaged and fetch a pretty penny on the street, where they’re commonly known as Boordrum’s Balls.
An unusually heavy iron ball the size of a fist, scarred with thousands of cuts that form an intricate pattern across its surface. When you throw it into the air it hovers in a slow orbit around you at heart level. The orb blocks the next successful weapon attack (i.e. not claws, bites, spells etc.) against you, after which it falls to the ground.
This orb of bright white stone is the size of an eyeball. When you think of something you want to find and throw the orb into the air it hovers at eye level, settling near you to indicate a direction. Roll+INT. * On a 10+ both. * On a 7-9 choose one:
• the orb shows you the safest way to the goal.
• the orb shows you the quickest way to the goal.
Two spheres of flawless, slightly blue tinted glass, these orbs have almost no weight at all. As long you hold one in each hand, you are completely weightless. As long as they’re on your person (in a pouch, backpack, etc.) your load is also lightened by 1.
Feedback welcome! This feels like it’ll become quite a large series of items over time – feel free to add your own. 🙂
