Velekh's pocketwatch

Description:
Bio:

This is a gold pocketwatch, in Velekh’s possession. Rather than tell time, it gives the user advice and information about the present situation. It has seven glyphs on its face, each corresponding to a primary meaning as well as secondary metaphorical meanings derived from elvish proverbs. It has a single hand which points to the relevant glyph. It is an intelligent magical item, and usually knows more than the characters do, but its advice is necessarily ambiguous.

List of glyphs:

GLYPH SECONDARY MEANINGS ELVISH SAYING
1. Birth new information, re-evaluation “Birth is like a new rumor.”
2. Death necessary change; reversal of course “Make the most of death.”
3. The Sword combat or perseverance “Elves with swords die upon other swords, but do so gladly.”
4. The Tree rumor, awareness “Listen to the tree roots growing underground.”
5. The Hill opportunity for positive action “You can see more by climbing to the top of a hill.”
6. The Enemy treachery; risk of negative action “Much ill is done by an enemy’s good intentions, & vice versa.”
7. The Book use of reason or knowledge “None know the result before reason is applied.”
