An unusual device that stands in front of Crispin's house in Serenia. Crispin says that he has forgotten for what purpose he originally built it, but that it does do an adequate job as a wind chime. It seems that Crispin has many explanations as to what the Universe Interpreter does or does not do. They have the odor of being invented on the spot. Cedric told Graham that it keeps the stars aligned. Local legend has it that it is used somehow in the act of withdrawal from the Other World to Daventry. It is quite possible that all of the above--and more--are true.[1]

In King's Quest V, Cedric warns Graham not to touch it, for fear that he could realign the stars.
