Source Pathfinder #163: Ruins of Gauntlight pg. 78
Price 240 gp
Usage held in 1 hand; Bulk 1
It's said that the pale blue light of this eldritch lantern shines from another dimension or even is linked, somehow, to the glow of a ghost when it is consumed by the Outer Goddess Nhimbaloth. A lantern of empty light is not intrinsically an evil item, though it remains a favored tool of those who would manipulate the minds of others for sinister reasons. It can be used as a normal bull's-eye lantern, but prolonged use tends to instill in the user a vague sense of being watched by unseen eyes.

Activate Interact (emotion, visual); Frequency once per day; Effect You direct the lantern's light upon a single living creature within 60 feet. That creature must attempt a DC 20 Will save to resist the light's effects.

Critical Success The creature is unaffected and realizes that you attempted to mentally influence them with the light.
Success The creature is unaffected but thinks the light was harmless, unless it knows the true nature of the lantern already.
Failure The creature becomes fascinated by the lantern's light, and remains fascinated as long as you Sustain the Activation, up to 10 minutes.
Critical Failure As failure, but you can Sustain the Activation for up to 1 hour. When the effect ends, the fascinated creature remembers any events that took place while fascinated only as indistinct, dream-like memories.

Activate Interact; Frequency once per day; Effect You direct the lantern's light upon a single incorporeal undead creature within 60 feet to siphon away some of the creature's essence, dealing 4d8 positive damage to the creature (DC 20 basic Will save).
