One of the more common floatstone creations; a cloud lantern is a large hexagonal iron enclosure for an oil lamp, capped by a small wheel of floatstone. Below a bulbous oil reservoir hangs a large metal ring, used to hook the lanterns for re-filling. More expensive examples have stained glass panes, incense burners, scented oils or tiny music playing oddities included. A cloud lantern will hover in the air where it’s placed, but their annoying tendency to drift with air currents and rise up as the oil reservoir empties means they rarely see use outside of enclosed areas.

- Additional Notes:
- Cloud lanterns, once lit, emit normal light at short range (15m) and dim light at long (30m). A filled oil reservoir lasts for 100 hours continuous use.
