Cup of Sorrownon
This ornate platinum goblet is covered in mystic runes which erratically
pulse and occasionally change shape. Usually the changing of the runes
shape heralds the coming of an important event. The cup is about a foot
tall and can contain a pint of liquid. The cup displays various powers
when different liquids are placed within. Any given substance poured
into the cup will only create a magical effect but once per day. When filled
with the following substances, the designated effect occurs.

year and a day. The digestive results of imbibing a pint of sand are left to
the Dungeon Master.

is poured into the cup and then poured out then the resulting puddle may be
used as a crystal ball. If imbibed, the drinker need not consume liquids for
nourishment for one week.
Poison: If poison is poured into the cup
and imbibed then the drinker gains a powerful vision regarding a specific
item, person, place, or event - much like a legend lore spell. In
general, the more deadly and powerful the poison consumed, the more potent,

holy water receives the benefits of protection from evil.
Dust of a magic item: The dust of a mid-sized
magical item is a sufficient drought to effect a restoration upon the
