Compass

Some of the effects from Earth make a needle move. I'm talking about a compass. A compass is used for finding which direction you are or need to go.

How to use a compass.

  1. 1. Find your position and where you want to go on the map.
  2. 2. Match the edge of your compass with that line.
  3. 3. Rotate the bezel so its orienting lines run parallel with the map's orienting lines.
