The fire orb was Lord Noc's first experiment in Technomagic. The orb itself is a simple anti-grav lift. Lord Noc melded the lift with the fire parchment of Abdul Ibn Moussad.
The parchment itself contains a few of the runes of power causing the parchment to exist simultaneously between reality and ethereality. This coexistence sets up a quantum manic flux which results in a low powered, but limitless energy source.
