This orb was given to Drenches Tint after the seeming destruction of his former master.
The orb allows a magic user to draw from its centre any number of spells, even those far beyond the capability of user. However drawing from the orb in this way comes at a dread price. For the orb itself is sentient being and at its heart was emprisoned the corrupted soul of Blacklutch. Each time a magic user extracts magic from the orb directed, a small piece of the users own soul was stolen by the spirit of Blacklutch. Blacklutch mean’t to steal enough of the person’s soul so that he may take possession of their body and finally be free.
