Tuesday Magic Item – Marisol’s Butter Churn

29 May, 2018

Butter Churn“Buttered bread is the very best,” said Gollaon, spreading the butter thickly on the dark bread.

“It has its place,” agreed Voddick.

“But you prefer beer,” finished Gollaon.

“Over bread, yes.  But buttered beer . . . does not work so well.”

Gollaon laughed.

Marisol’s Butter Churn

This butter churn is well made, though with brass fitting rather than iron, and usually decorated with carving of spring, birds, flowers, butterflies, that sort of thing.

The butter churn is well made and easy to use.  In normal use, that is all there is.

However, it will also turn milk, not just cream, into butter and with less effort.  As long as this is used moderately or for charitable ends, no ill will come of it.

But if it is used for greedy ends, the user will only want more of whatever they desire and at some point, when they need it the most, the churn-staff will break and only a fae can make a replacement . . . and who knows what they will ask in return.

  1. Great! I love “mundane” magic items like this. It may well show up in my Azurth game.
