Tuesday Magic Item – Unspillable Tankard

7 March, 2023
Have a drink with me.

Tankard (1715–25). American. Made in New York, New York, Mid-Atlantic, United States. Accession number: 27.85.1

Voddick listened potentially to the drunk insult him and his heritage and when the fool knocked his drink over, he was prepared for what would happen.  The drunk was not, as nothing spilled out of the almost full tankard.  As the drunk starred dumfounded at this minor miracle, Voddick coldcocked him with a precise uppercut.

Gollaon righted the drink of their friend.  “Your patience is admirable, especially given what he was saying about your mother.”

Voddick took a drink.  “My mother taught me never to fight fair with drunks and liars,” he said with a grin.

Unspillable Tankard

Tankards are useful items, many people have their own, so one that does not spill its contents is even more useful.  Each of these tankards is usually highly decorated and personalized for the person it was made for.  They can be wood, pewter, silver, or even more exotic materials.

The tankard has a few simple powers:

It keeps the drink at a constant temperature.

The drink will not spill, it can be poured or drunk, but it will not spill.

Lastly, the tankard itself is incredibly tough.
