Tuesday Magic Item – Portable Porter

7 November, 2018

Hat for servant“Sometimes it is not so bad working with wizards,” said Voddick as he watched the magical manifestations carry and load the goods for the journey.

“Truth,” replied Gollaon with nod.  “But at some point on this journey, we will be doing that same task.”

“Without doubt.  But we are not doing it now and for that, I am grateful.  Now let us see if we can get another drink before we leave.”

“Excellent plan.”

Portable Porter

These bowler hats are well made and inevitably black, hidden under the interior lining are the runes and inscribed spells that power their magic workings.

Worn, the hat provides a +4 resistance bonus / +4 natural armor bonus to resist physical attacks and traps that target the top of the head.

But it is more useful when placed on the ground and a command word spoken, then a servant rises to fill the hat,  It will follow the orders of the person who placed the hat, though it cannot initiate violence or even defend itself.  Treat it as an unseen servant with a Strength of 4 and a +1 bonus on Craft and Profession checks that can only be used for aid another checks.  The servant may be summoned for up to nine hours each day but each summoning uses at least one hour no matter for how short a period the servant is used for.

Wondrous item (hat), uncommon (requires attunement and see below)

First paragraph as above.

Worn, the hat provides advantage to saving throws to resist physical attacks and traps that target the top of the head suffer disadvantage on their attack.

But it is more useful when placed on the ground and a command word spoken, then a servant rises to fill the hat,  It will follow the orders of the person who placed the hat, though it cannot initiate violence or even defend itself.  Treat it as an unseen servant except that it has AC 11, 1 hit point, and a Strength of 4.   It can help on tool proficiency checks if directed to by its summoner.  The servant may be summoned for up to nine hours each day but each summoning uses at least one hour no matter for how short a period the servant is used for.

While the Portable Porter requires attunement, a person may be attuned up to three of them that only counts a one item for the limit of attuned items.

Notes: I was off at a trade show the last couple of days and having someone to help carry things would have been helpful on several occasions.
