"Eternal Dragon, by your name, I summon you forth: Shenron!!!"
—Goku, Saiyan Warrior

The Dragon Balls are a set of 7 spherical balls that are about 3 inches in diameter each, with each weighing approximately 2 lbs. They are exclusively orange in color and feature five-pointed red stars that are stationary inside of the ball itself (akin to glass art); the stars in them are to number the balls 1 through 7, with only 1 star in the "1 star ball" and 7 stars in the "7 star ball". Individually, the balls have no powers, but when they are brought together within the same 5 foot square and the secret phrase is uttered, they have the ability to call forth the Eternal Dragon who grants the first 3 wishes spoken to him by anyone who was present when he was summoned. The Dragon has the discretion to change a wish at the last minute (say someone else shouts a modification to the wish), provided the original wisher appears to consent to the change(s).

When the wishes are used, the orbs spin as they float up hundreds of feet in the sky and then burst off at light speed in 7 different random directions and velocities scattering them randomly across the planet. After they land and settle for 1 minute they turn to stone, becoming dormant and unusable for 1 years time and then after the 1 year, they resume their normal function and appearance. The exception to this is when the summoner chooses to save 1 or more of their wishes, at which point the Dragon Balls will scatter as normal again, but only become dormant for four months instead of the usual year. When next collected, if the same user summons Shenron, then they get their remaining wishes from the previous summoning, but if that user is not present, then the new summoner gains 3 new wishes.

In their normal form the balls are nigh unbreakable by conventional means, with each ball having a hardness of 75 that cannot be bypassed by any kind of weapon, material, magic or attack unless done by a deity rank 16 or higher and each ball has 100 hit points a piece. Any user trying to use a spell on the Dragon Balls must beat a caster level check of DC 50. In their stone form they count as non magical stone orbs and can be broken accordingly. If one of the stone orbs has minor damage such as a crack or chip this will be magically repaired after the year when the orb returns to it's normal form. However, if even one of the stone orbs is ever destroyed, that set of Dragon Balls is broken and can never be used again.

The Eternal Dragons are actually sentient beings; and thus, they are capable of interpreting a wish however they see fit, but usually choose to interpret them how they know the wisher actually wants, as a courtesy rather than as a rule, regardless of the users alignment. Unlike other forms of fiction that involve wishes being granted, the Dragon Balls tend to grant a wish exactly as the wisher imagined it, rather than warping the wish so that it is technically granted, but ends up making the wisher's life even more difficult. For example, if a user wishes for youth, they are not reduced to an infant, but rather, they appear in their prime. Also, if the user wishes for someone to be revived from the dead, the target is not converted to an undead, but rather, are truly alive. If a wish were to have brutal unforeseeable consequences an Eternal Dragon may even give a warning about the repercussions of a wish, but if the user seems to understand, the Eternal Dragon will still fulfill an ill-advised wish if the summoner insists. Legitimate wishes include: wealth, magic items, secret knowledge, eternal youth, immortality, death of specific being(s), creation of a new unique or specific being, making someone fall in love, bringing back a scorched forest or even restoring a recently annihilated planet and all of its population.

With all of its power the Dragon Balls do have a couple of limitations on the wishes that can be granted. First being that the Dragon will not grant the exact same wish twice for the same user. It can grant similar wishes but not the exact same one. For example if you wish for a specific person to be resurrected the first time, the next time they die the dragon would not grant a wish to revive that person, but if that person died in a big battle yesterday and you wished for everyone in that battle to be revived or wished for everyone who died yesterday to be revived, then the target you're hoping to resurrect would be revived along with everyone else. If reviving large groups of people, the time of death for any one creature cannot have been more than 1 year ago. If someone is wished back to life and the place of their arrival is not indicated in the wish, they will come back to life in the location they died at. Also, the Dragon Balls cannot revive a person who has died of natural causes, because they would just immediately die of old age again. That would take two wishes, one to recreate and de-age the body, and the other to restore it to life.

The Eternal Dragon can also not grant a wish to kill any creature with a divine rank, even 0, but they could summon a being with a divine rank less than 16 (however, there would likely be consequences from the summoned party).

The procedure to create the Dragon Balls is a secret held and fiercely guarded by the Namekian race, who are the exclusive creators of the Dragon Balls. The elders of the Namekian's Dragon Clan are the ones who create the Dragon Balls. Each set of Dragon Balls are crafted along with a small stone statue of Shenron. A major secret of The Dragon Balls are that each set is mystically tied to the statue that was used to create them, and to the life force of their creator, so if the statue is destroyed, or when the creator of the Dragon Balls dies, the Dragon Balls return to being non magical stones forever.

Prerequisites: Craft Wondrous Item, Wish, Permanency.
Cost to Create: 100,000 gp, 15,000 EXP, 100 days, a set of 7 smooth, stone orbs and a small stone statue of Shenron.
