The Sphere of Destiny is a fabled relic, spoken of in ancient legend. Although little is known about it, it is said to be a small metal sphere which has the power to grant its owner nearly any desire. Of the few stories know about the Sphere, the latest is from a thousand years ago, when an evil necromancer named Terdeth Kyynn stole the Sphere from its rightful owner and took it with him to his ship, a mighty dreadnought. He tried to break the Sphere's power and force it to serve him forever, but the Sphere resisted him, destroying him and everyone else on board his ship. Kyynn's dreadnought, the Necromancer, is said to have drifted endlessly through space ever since, a derelict ghost ship, with the Sphere of Destiny still on board.
