Tuesday Magic Item – Storm in a Bottle10 July, 2012
“What about this one?” asked the young man looking at the Captain small -but impressive- collection of liquors and wines in the rack in his cabin.
“Do not touch that it,” smiled the old sailor, “that is a vintage I hope to never have to uncork, but I keep it against time of need.”
“What is it?”
“The wind and the rains if I need it to be,” the Captain answered with a knowing wink.
Storm in a Bottle
These bottle are made of thick glass usually green and they weigh much more than a normal filled bottle would. They are sealed with heavy wax and marked with arcane symbols. Looking closely, something can be seen to be swirling around.
The storm in the bottle can be used in one of two ways:
• Decanted, slowly opened and poured into a crystal glass, it functions as a control weather spell with all of the limitation of that spell, cast at 13th level but with a duration of only 4d4 hours.
• Shattered, it explodes into a storm appropriate to the season in a 500′ radius for 3d10 minutes. This storms are notably unstable and may break free and move of their own accord or even seed into the local weather spawning odd weather for days to come.
Obviously, each bottle is only good for one use.
