Crystal Ball toys are scripted in the style of a "Magic 8 Ball" and sold at Ebon Gate in the shop Third Eye. Various portions of the item's description can be customized as described in the Analyze, and some merchants may add a custom fortune.


Crystal Ball Analyze

You analyze the clear crystal orb and sense that the item is largely free from merchant alteration restrictions, but the creator has stated that "The item type should not change."

The creator has also provided the following information:
A hoarfrost clear crystal orb must remain glass and stay some sort of sphere, orb, ball, or crystal ball.
The orb can be altered to have a unique long description only.  It can also be engraved with an inscription.
Any of the bolded sections in the show description can be changed by a talented magical merchant:
A perfectly round niveous crystal ball rests on a carved elk antler base.  Within the glass, chilling frost trails the across surface in spiderweb patterns that reshape themselves at every turn.  Motes of ice blue light wink in and out of existence within the depths of the orb.
A talented merchant could add a custom fortune to the orb.
Blue phrases can be customized
