This unusual artifact is extremely valuable.

When raised, this lantern will cast a web of mana about any disk following its holder, which will result in a change to the disk's appearance.

The magic stored within the lantern is limited in scope and will eventually be exhausted. At that time, only the most skilled of wizards will be able to recharge it, so it will probably need a merchant's attention.

The brass lantern is so fully charged with mana that it glows briefly before your eyes.

The image of a spinning disk manifests in your mind. The motion is dizzying, and the harmonics include a faint, nauseating hum that is distinctly disorienting. As the image fades away, the world wobbles slightly in your vision before stabilizing.

Results when RAISED and no disk is present

Results when RAISED and a disk is present

As you raise the lantern, the etchings on the lantern begin to glow a red hue as smoke is emitted. The smoke appears to blow towards your disk until it is covered. Suddenly, flames burst forth around the disk, heating it until it glows a similar reddish color. The flames disappear as quickly as they began, but the disk appears to remain smoldering.

Disk appearance after use

Glowing with a dim, pulsating light, the disk appears to have the texture of smoldering embers. An occasional tongue of flame bursts up from the side before quickly disappearing. The smoldering [character name] disk is hovering in mid-air around you.
