Solfire Lantern


A lantern that when lit, interrupts illusions, magical darkness, reveals the invisible, and might even cause the incorporeal to become vulnerable to physical attacks.


Created by the Magi of Ta'urell, the Wayfarer's Lantern was a legendary tool designed to help them detect and seal away dark spirits. The lantern sat on a pedestal at the dark gate in their sanctum. When the lantern was stolen, the Magi sought after it, and decades later they still seek the lost lantern.


The lantern, casts light ten feet from the user, radiating an aura of truesight, disrupting but not dispelling illusions for any who carry it.

Optional/Unknown Properties

The lantern may also have an unknown effect, if used near the incorporeal, shades, wraiths, ghosts, etc.., will weaken them, making them vulnerable to physical attacks.

Optional/Unknown Drawbacks

Misfortune befalls those who carry the Solfire Lantern. The darkness follows them, seeking to destroy it. The only thing they have managed thus far, is to cause it to be lost.

A really useful item that I am sure most D&D RPG parties would love to have on their equipment lists.

Did you have a type of latern in mind? Does its style and construction have contempary or historical equivalent on earth?

You drop a bit of a plot: the Magi's quest to recover their missing latern. What does the latern look like? If it looks fairly mundane could the owner be unaware of its nature? Could it be hanging from the roof of a mill and sitting at the river dock used by water taxis, and the latern's ability to illuminate the ubiquitous passing ghosts giving the spot the rumor hauntings?
