Tuesday Magic Item – Soldiers’ Stew Pot

3 March, 2020

Smells goodVoddick tucked into the bowl of stew with gusto.  “Well, back to the army life.  At least this one is good about getting us food.”

Gollaon nodded and ate a spoonful of stew.  “We will see how well they manage with the supplies once we are properly on campaign.”

“Better than most,” said Voddick and gestured to the stew pots.  “Do you not recognize those?”

Gollaon looked and laughed.  “Ah!  Some of Tavish the Wizard-Chef’s work!  That should make things a bit easier on everyone.”  He leaned in.  “And something we should take with us if things fall apart,” he whispered.

Soldiers’ Stew Pot

These stew pots are well made and occasionally decorated but usually they just bear a prominent mark from their maker.  Even after having been in storage they still smell of a recently prepared warm meal.

Besides being almost absurdly hard wearing, it heats quickly and evenly over any fire and any new food placed in it is increased by one half (you cannot just keep adding the stew to itself) and purified of any disease, poison, rot or spoilage.  Additional any food cooked in it is made more palatable, formerly rotten food is edible, old food become nice and good food tastes wonderful.

Notes: “An army marches on its stomach.” -Napoleon.  Thus, anything that makes preparing food for soldiers easier and more efficient is a good thing.  A similar item I did in the past is the Miles’ Ration Box.
