Liars’ Lantern

Wondrous item, very rare

Though intricate in design this lantern does not appear special at first glance, yet for centuries these items were key to the Imperial Inquisition’s interrogations. Though the secret to their creation has been lost, a number of them have begun showing up in the western cities.

When lit, this lantern illuminates an area 30 feet around it. Any lies spoken within this radius cause the flame to dance and flicker as though caught in a strong wind. The subtle nature of the lantern makes it a favorite amongst the rulers of the Five Kingdoms when determining the loyalty of their subordinates.
