Tuesday Magic Item – Untearable Bag

2 August, 2022

How much will fit inside?

Gollaon shook his head.  “Why is he even trying?  That will never fit in that small bag . . . Well, I’ll be.”

Voddick laughed.  “Those are quite popular where I come from.  Sometimes they have competitions to see how much they could fit into a bag.”

“Really?  And how much could be fit into one?”

“The most I saw managed was a small cart.”

“My goodness.”

Untearable Bag

These bags start as normal-seeming pouches, but as things are placed into them, the bag expands to contain the items put inside.  There is an upper limit but it is a challenge to reach.

The bag expands to contain the items put in it up to the size of a small cart.  The bag does its best to organize things inside and make itself as easy as possible to carry or drag.

As one would expect from its name, it is virtually untearable.  However, it can be cut and if it is reduced to zero hit points it just folds up upon itself until there is nothing left and anything that was inside is unceremoniously dumped.  But it is tough to do (Hardness 5, HP 15) and if emptied out, it “heals” 1d6 points of damage each day it is left empty.

First and second paragraphs as above.

As one would expect from its name, it is virtually untearable.  However, it can be cut and if it is reduced to zero hit points it just folds up upon itself until there is nothing left and anything that was inside is unceremoniously dumped.  But it is tough to do (Armor Class 15, HP 18) and if emptied out, it “heals” 1d6 points of damage each day it is left empty.

Notes: As is my want, this is an item that would be useful to be able to take to a convention, such as GenCon (which I will be on the road to when this is published.  This means I will be a bit slow about replying to any comments.
