Floron's Fabulous Mirror (abbreviated as FFM) is a miscellaneous spell that shows the caster a snapshot of the current room of the target. It has two steps, first the actual casting of the spell, then "gazing" into a mirror in your inventory. Unlike a crystal ball, FFM will allow you to see a target in a dark room.
