All eggs come in a wide variety of sizes ranging from those of chicken egg to the largest the size of a small bus. The outer skin of these devices is actually "Molecular  Law". The material is the cast off skin and remains of the Lords of Stability gathered by their followers and spun by super science and sorcery into a stable, ultra dense, and "perfect material".
 The Internal Mechanisms are created through the most cunning technological processes and require 5,000 credits to gather the rare Interstellar materials. Or 10,000 gold pieces of "magical" assistance from the planes of Law. 
The work takes 1d300 days at least to fashion the mechanism and can not done outside the bounds of a "Pattern of Law".
The pattern requires that the user commit one temporary wisdom and one temporary intelligence point in its construction. These can be recovered if the powers of Law see fit to grant them. The size of the pattern varies according to artifact being created. 
Each artifact is not delicate at all and will last for thousands of years. One a rare blue green laser has a 10% chance of cracking the shell of an egg. The resulting explosion does 1d10 points of damage to everything within a 30 yard range.
Each egg will have between  one and 1d30 charges when found. 
Each egg is named after the wizard or explorer who found it.
