This oval ceramic wind instrument looks rather old. At one point, a horse seems to have been carved into the side, but the details are worn away and the deeper etchings are caked black with years of dirt. A hairline crack curls around it, barely missing the horse carving's head.
The cracked ocarina is about six inches long and about four inches wide. It is made of ceramic and appears to be a musical instrument from the wind family. It is in excellent condition.
Summoning your mount
Playing the ocarina when your mount is not with you summons after a couple of heartbeats.
- There is some kind of skill check(s) for it to work.

You hold a cracked ocarina in your right hand and left hand. As you play, your mind drifts to Frazyl's Hon the bay dun horse and you weave a wordless call into the tune. A lilting melody sounds from your cracked ocarina as you play it, the flourishes at the end of each bar resembling a welcoming whinny. You put the cracked ocarina in a pocket in the dark green spider silk robe. The music echoes, mingling with the faint sound of hoofbeats in the distance. Frazyl's Hon the bay dun horse gallops in from the north at high speed.
