Tuesday Magic Item – Mother Sugarfoot’s Kitchen Accoutrement

26 November, 2019

Let us get to cookingVoddick leaned back in the chair sipping a nice cup of tea.  “Hand me another of those lovely almond pastries, will you please?”

Gollaon slide the plate over.  “It would be entirely too easy to just while away the rest of our time in a place like this.”

Voddick took a pastry and dunked it in his tea.  “Enjoy the moment, my friend.  Our lives will spin out of control soon enough.”

“Truth,” nodded Gollaon idly stirring his tea.

Mother Sugarfoot’s Kitchen Accoutrement

This is not one magic item, but rather a whole kitchen full of items with small enchantment: pots that will not scald their contents (or burn those that pick them up), self-grinding pestles, measures that do not spill, self-stirring spoons, automatic flour sifters, and so on and so on.  Universally they are functional, self-cleaning and self repairing.

For game purposes, they are five sub-sets that form a complete set of the Accoutrement, but once made, they often get parceled out as bride gifts and for other reasons.

A single set provides a +2 competence bonus on Craft (Cooking) and Profession (chief), or similar, skills which each additional set increasing that bonus by 1 (to a maximum of +6).  Additionally having one or mores sets provide the following bonuses:

  • One Set: Preparation time for cooking is reduced by one tenth.
  • Two Sets: Counts as having one assistant of basic competency to assist the primary cook.
  • Three Sets: Preparation time for cooking is reduced by one fifth.  All workers in the kitchen have Resistance to normal fire 5.
  • Four Sets: Counts as an additional assistant of basic competency to assist the primary cook (so, two assistants).
  • Complete Set of Five: Preparation time for cooking is reduced by one fifth.  The Primary Cook may reroll one check involved in food preparation per day, taking the higher of the two results.

Notes: Something useful for the preparation of large dinners, the source of such inspiration is obvious.  See also Mother Sugarfoot’s Infinite Sandwich Knife and the Breadboard of Plenty.
