Tuesday Magic Item – Pilgrim’s Pouch

3 May, 2016

Ever onward“I like this task, just lots of walking so far, with nice hearty meals at the end,” said Voddick.

“Best keep alert, they would not have hired us as escort if the route was entirely safe,” said Gollaon scanning the horizon.

“True, true,” agreed Voddick sighting along his crossbow.  “I would not want to these good people to think that we are not earning our keep.”

“Especially as this could lead to more work.”

Pilgrim’s Pouch

These hardy pouches are made from hard wearing material such as canvas or leather and are usually decorated with a simple symbol of faith.

Each day a pilgrim’s pouch will produce for its owner, who must be of the faith marked or an associated faith, enough bland but nutritious food to sustain one person.  This food can be given away but is taken or stolen, it turns to ash.

Once per day, it can also produce one of the following:

  • Enough basic medical supplies to serve as a healer’s kit.
  • Dry tinder and kindling to start a fire with.
  • 2/3rds gallon (3 L) of pure water.

Again, these can be given away but if stolen or taken, the items turn to ash and the water becomes dust.

Wondrous item, uncommon (requires attunement)

Note this attunement does not prevent the person from attuning another holy item, potentially allowing the person to be attuned to four items.

Notes:  Playing on the suggested pilgrimage theme, one useful item for the faithful traveler or pilgrim.
