A Shining Trapezohedron:
This beautiful and mind-shatteringly dangerous relic was brought to us by the widow of a Narragansett Bay fisherman in 1963. The man had snagged it with his line while fishing the Bay. That night his widow claimed watching strange lights dance on the walls in the kitchen as he sat in the dark, staring in the box. After that, she said, the fisherman wouldn't shut the lights off. For a couple of months she endured the behavior until she saw the electricity bill.
On a whim, one night, as she got a glass of water from the kitchen, she turned the lights out on her way back to the bedroom. As soon as the last light had been extinguished in the hall, a great black wind knocked her down on its way to her sleeping husband. Though they never found his body, the widow assured me that the shrieks were enough to convince her of his fate.
Scholars say this object hails from completely alien origins. Others say it was first discovered in Egyptian ruins in the 1800's. This may be true, though cryptic passages in forbidden texts hint at a more terrifying possibility. It is now believed that several of the Trapezohedron exist, hidden in the world's most ancient and hidden places. For now, we offer this to you with one warning. Don't turn out the lights.
