|Hermin, the King's sister holds a crystal ball|
and is scrying a human court house.
Anyone holding the crystal ball can switch from bead to be bead on command.
This item first appeared in The Kobold's Folly, which is a series of maps available on DriveThruRPG.
In that book, the Scryer's Beads were separated from the crystal ball and the kobolds do not have the ability to use the crystal ball effectively. The beads were taken from a horse thief in a small provincial town and are sitting on the bench of the local judge.
The Kobold King's sister, Hermin, is in possession of the crystal ball and frequently scries the court room. Hermin believes she is seeing the high court of a human king. Observations of the rural court house have caused the kobold tribe to believe a great number of strange things about human royalty and legal proceedings, which they seek to emulate. While this may be amusing, the tribe has developed a hatred of horse thieves, and perhaps a taste for them.
