The Box

I forgot to mention something.

We found a strange box. At first, we thought it converted mundane items into gems. When we placed a hand in the box, nothing happened. But when we placed an item in the box, it was replaced with a gem (a small topaz). Eventually, I realized that the gems must have been stored in the box, for at some point we put in a mundane item and received back not a gem but one of the first mundane items we had placed in the box.

It is some sort of extra-dimensional storage device. Quite handy--just by placing your hand in the box and thinking of the item, it appears in your hand. Weedon is enjoying playing with the box; I am glad he has something to pass the time on the ship while we explore the tower.
