The Augur is a powerful arcane device used by the guards of some cities. It can always tell when a person is telling the truth. If someone lies to an Augur it tears the soul from their body.
Many cities consider the use of Augurs too gruesome to contemplate; however, there are exceptions. Notably the border town of Thowald’s Crossing.
The Augur takes the form of a great eye framed in a circle of rune-inscribed silver.
