Five Dimensional Mirrors Into The Great Beyond

“I know who I WAS when I got up this morning, but I think I must have been changed several times since then” 
― Lewis CarrollAlice's Adventures in Wonderland and Through the Looking Glass
These mirrors reflect and change anything that they see. Each one opens to various times and places as well as having an intelligence and alien view point toward PC's that they encounter. No one comes away from them unchanged. These dark hued glasses show things through a glass darkly. Beware not to gaze into them to long for they will take more then your mere reflection.

Not Mere Treasure 
“No, no! The adventures first, explainations take such a dreadful time.” 
― Lewis CarrollAlice's Adventures in Wonderland & Through the Looking-Glass
 Each glass is a piece of art created to through a twisted combination of slaved spirit and foul twisted dimensional occult art. They may be encountered anywhere or anywhen. Each may dimensionally teleport without error once per week. They each regenerate as trolls and are neutral evil in every sense of the word. Once per day they may devour the soul of one living creature. And they may use one of the following powers. Cast an Illusionist spells  as a third level illusionist, create darkness, and  cause 1d4 points of damage by creating reflections of such upon the skin of their target. Saving throws apply though.

She may open doorways to the realms of the newly dead. 
  2. Balirma- A priestess of Kali in life whose foul deeds in death earned her a place above the mantle piece of her hated enemies. She may open doors to any battle field in time and space. Her former goddess loaths her and will not answer her foul prayers. She may summon a minor demon or two to pester those where she dwells. She hates young lovers and frequently kills one or other of such. She feasts on the souls of those she kills. She often opens doors to strange underworlds not written about in traditional mythologies. She collects the small finger bones of her victims which become part of the strange reliefs of her frame work. 
  3. Faulronazglron- A former angel and Watcher now trapped in the form of a mirror doomed to watch humanity he so lusted after. This foul being may open a doorway into any of the nine circles but must be bribed with a poem of beauty and a dream of love. His lust still prevades his actions and he will try to consume the souls of any comely male or female human he targets. He may summon a group of foul cupid like imps. 1d8 of these vile creatures will appear to do his bidding. Each is a 2 hit point monster armed with crude swords and shields along with nasty barbed arrows. He may also qoute any human law at a whim. He often reflects the secret foul desires of his victims in order to lure and seduce them into his grasp. 
  4. Inglurtu- The cold grapser - This being is a twisted elemental of ice and snow bound in the glass of beyond. The monster will open doorways across the multiverse and send a doppleganger twisting after those he sends through. The monster will then kill his tolls. He loves to feast on the souls of heroes.  The monster my also open a doorway onto the planes of ice. The Elemental rulers hate this foul thing and love to torment it when he is found.  Foul being is also loathed by the courts of fairy and they have a standing reward for his revovery. Once per day this being may heal 1d4 points of damage with the incredible chilled breath his which purifies the very soul of any being. The side effect is that a small sliver of the soul of this creature is now bound to those he heals. They become is unwilling eyes and ears across the planes. 
  5. Wegotuli - The Switcher - This being loves to change one thing into another and is addicted to the chaos it creates. He may once per day change flesh, gender, and even species. All the universe is a show for him and he the audience. He has wrecked worlds, cities, and many, many, places. He is the great trickster that no one likes. His jokes are the stuff of carnal carnage and chaos. He may open a door into any place of fairy land and beyond. He charges one change per trip and may change far more.
    Those who give him their souls are filled with the unclear power of this foul being. It is speculated that he is a mad fallen god of chaos. None no his secret for he is far too insane to reveal his secrets. He is the keeper of the secrets of his brethren.
