|“||You see a delicate golden device with a small dial and a couple of buttons. There is a symbol on the other side - a circle with a diagonal line through it. A null? You push a small button and a strange silence settles over you. Hardly the most useful device, but it bounds to fetch a good price and doesn't take much space.

|“||[lore success]You pull out the nullifier and look at the dial. Suddenly, a distant memory surfaces in your mind - a drawing from an old tractate written by a demented monk. The monk claimed to be an authority on the Old World's charms and wards, but his tractate was filled with bizarre images that defied all attempts to understand or decipher them.
The drawing in question depicted nightmarish creatures gathering around a magus who was protected by a sun shining down upon him. Instead of the traditional face, the sun had the exact same markings as the dial on the nullifier.
