Overview[edit | edit source]
This chimerical periscope is able to violate a number of different laws of reality. It can be stuck through walls, ceilings, floors, and doors, thus allowing one to see through them. It is about three feet in length and looks and behaves like a normal periscope. A crank extends and lowers the shaft (allowing it to become up to 15 feet in length), and the view can be adjusted through a focus knob.
The Periscope has a coy personality and on occasion becomes a little cheeky; depicting hideous monsters instead of what is actually present in the place being spied. If angered, it sometimes shows mesmerizing kaleidoscopic effects. What the Periscope wants, more than anything else, is to be used often, wisely, and in interesting ways. It wants to look at “cool stuff,” not “boring stuff.”
