Lantern of Guidance

A miniature bullseye lantern chained to a 4’ length of darkwood, a lantern of guidance never goes out except within areas of magical darkness – neither the strongest wind nor full immersion in water can douse its silvery flame. Yet its true power lies in its ability to unerringly guide the lantern-bearer toward locations specified by the creator. This functions as a find the path spell; when held the lantern’s light always shines in the correct direction of travel, and the lantern-bearer has an instinctive sense of any physical actions to take (such as avoiding trip wires or speaking passwords to avoid magic glyphs).

It’s not immediately apparent from looking at the lantern, but because it’s a fairly small lantern connected to a sturdy handle by a short length of chain, it’s an effective heavy flail. It radiates strong divination and moderate transmutation magic.
