Tuesday Magic Item – Passage Chalk

15 May, 2018

Would you open this door?“Will this really work?” asked Voddick, risking a nervous glance around the corner.  “They will be here any moment.”

“I have seen it done and the chalk seems magical,” replied Gollaon as he used the chalk to draw on the wall.

“That is not inspired confidence,” muttered Voddick.

“Well it works.”

“Then let us go.  Now.”

Passage Chalk

These pieces of chalk are seem like any other piece of chalk, except they are a very pale shade of one of the colors of the spectrum . . . a different one each time you look at it.

There use is very simple, the holder draws a door (or passage or something similar) on an upright surface and they can pass through it as though it as though it were a passage to the other side.  On the other side, the chalk passageway is still visible and can be erased, ending the passage.  If it is not erased, the chalk fades is 1d4 minutes or after 3d6 beings have passed through the portal, whichever happens first.

Sometimes, the passageway does not lead to the other side of the marked surface, but to the fae realm and this trip will be one way.

Each piece of passage chalk can be used 1d4 times before being used up.
