According to Dalmutrin's Doxological Exegeticon (but only in the third revision), the Aeonic Synchropore is essentially a divination device akin to a dowser's forked-rod, only it synchronizes itself with the area where it is opened-up and allows the user to observe events as they played out long, long ago in that very spot.
The user is behooved to know and employ the cursive iconoglyphs of classical aeonetics in order to appropriately tune and direct the time-skrying capabilities of this marvelous device.
It is all but indestructible and completely impervious to all attempts to engage it in conversation in any but the most obscure and esoteric form of some dead language known only to a select few rarefied scholars or mummified monastics.
Certain barbaric spell-casters have discovered that they can force the Aeonic Synchropore to execute a Temporal Dislocation (what they naively refer to as a 'Time-Shift') by the liberal application of a Feeblemind spell. Unfortunately, for them, no one has learned how to do this in a controlled manner, thus it is probably best left for all but the most fool-hardy or desperate.
