This archaic, ornate compass is a holy trinket sacred to AbadarCorp, and its needle is shaped like a thin golden key. A lawfinder’s needle always points toward the nearest settlement of at least 1,000 people; within such a settlement, the needle points to the primary center of government or civil administration for the settlement. This item can’t detect a settlement more than 100 miles away, except for settlements with the bureaucratic quality, which a lawfinder can detect up to 1,000 miles away. If no such settlements are within range, the lawfinder’s needle spins slowly.

As long as the lawfinder’s needle points to a settlement or civil center, it grants you a +2 insight bonus to Survival checks to avoid getting lost.
