Tales of the Three Tanks
An arcane lantern that can both enhance and suppress light
An ornately carved hooded lantern made of pewter. When the appropriate command word is spoken, the lantern’s holder can use it to manipulate the ambient light levels within 60’ from doubly bright to total darkness. Since it otherwise acts as a normal hooded lantern, providing its own ambient light, this means it can always brightly illuminate a 60’ radius area.
The lantern was discovered in use by the Goblin Prophet Nabru Pem. Shepherd Dreller analyzed it for the party, but was perplexed by its origin. The lantern is an arcane item, but not in any traditional sense that Dreller is familiar with. The source of the lantern’s power, and the rest of Nabru Pem’s magic, is still a mystery.
