crystal ball - allows you to scry people


scry <living> with ball
rub ball
gaze into ball
shatter ball


Crystal balls are ridiculous occult trinkets. They do absolutely nothing that you couldn't do with a mirror or a plate of water, but those who lack that level of skill might find it possible to spy on others.

If your skills are suitably high, you can scry a living creature with the 'scry' command. Rub the ball to stop scrying. If you want to see where your target currently is once more, you can 'gaze' into the ball.

Finally, you can also shatter a ball to turn it into interesting and decorative crystals.
