The Prism of the Adamant Magistrate is a small figurine, about 6 inches in height, that appears to be made of a clear, glittering substance that flashes like diamond when under direct light, giving it the appearance of a tiny ice sculpture coated in diamond dust. It is crafted in the image of a human man, standing on a square base, dressed in a toga-like robe and carrying a fan marked with a symbol that, unexplainably, seems strangely familiar to all who see it: A triangle within a circle within another triangle. The Prism weighs practically nothing, unless it is containing someone (See below), at which point it gains the weight of the person it contains.
The Prism cannot be scratched or broken. It resists all attempts to damage it. Fire scorches the surface of the figurine gray, but it retains it’s glittering, glassy surface within a few seconds of removal from the fire.
The Prism’s history is unknown, but it is no doubt an object of dark intent. It can be found in a shadowy ruin in the jungle that the natives call the House of the Broken-Winged Eagle, wrapped in a bolt of heavy, rotten cloth.
The Prism of the Adamant Magistrate, when the correct incantations are performed, traps whomever is gazing into the Prism inside. The victim dissapears and is transported to a tiny magic manse within the Prism, which consists of three rooms: A bedchamber with a balcony looking out onto a snowy mountainscape, a small dining chamber where there is always food, and a library in which a new set of volumes replaces the old when the room is left, so that each book is always new to the reader. The decoration, art, and food are styled to the tastes of the entrapped victim. There are no doors out of the three chambers but for between them, and any attempt to leap from the balcony onto the mountain landscape outside results in the victim being transported back into their bed in the bedchamber. The victim cannot escape the manse inside the Prism of the Adamant Magistrate unless:
A. The person who trapped the victim says the incantations backwards.
B. A spirit, powerful demon, or god intervenes.
C. The victim dies.
The Prism will hold a maximum of three people within it’s magic manse. If a fourth is entrapped, the first person who was within will be released.
