Sphere of Amber
This magical component was described by Heironimous as being particularly hard to craft, requiring special technology lost to time. Janis has sent the party to try and find one in the East Wing of the Majus Ruins which was known to house a laboratory that used to produce them.
Update: The Sphere is a magical component capable of housing a very powerful scrying spell which can bypass protections against scrying. When activated and calibrated to find a particular individual, a dot of light can be seen at its center, which will grow in size as the ball comes closer to the individual. It contains a number of circles centered around its core to help with tracking the size of the dot.
The Amber Sphere has been calibrated to help locate Princess Sophia who mysteriously disappeared from the Palace a month ago. The party, armed with this sphere, has been sent North to find her. Her approximate location being somewhere in the Forest of Eyes .
