Journal entry Edit

Either I'm goin' crazy, or this bloody powder-box is talkin' to me!
– Klaus Bober, fisherman from Tarn Mira, finder of Rience's xenovox
Xenovox is a relatively simple magical instrument, which usually looks like a little box, casket or richly adorned snuff-box. It is used to communicate over long distances – however, unlike the megascope, which projects an image of the speaker, xenovox carries only his or her voice.
How this contraption might work, I haven't the foggiest idea. Once, driven by curiosity, I took apart a xenovox which belonged to a good friend of mine. Contrary to popular belief, inside I did not find sirens' lips or a gnome with a speaking trumpet, but only dozens of little springs, screws and cogs gleaming with magic – which I was utterly unable to put back together.
