Lord Snail’s magic shell

In our last D&D session, a few months ago (we’ll get back to it after summer), after defeating Lord Snail the only thing that remained of him was his shell. I said to Rufb’s player that had picked it up and wanted to identify it (with the Tray of Ages), that, well, I didn’t know what it did, yet… That I’d come up with something and tell him next time.

Here it is:

This large shell functions as a Bag of Holding.

Curse: Legacy of a Pervert

Whenever you try to retrieve an item (as an action) from the Lord Snail’ Shell, you have 50% chance to pick instead one of the late Lord Snail’s innumerable erotic charcoal drawings (depicting his dungeon neighbour, the nereid).

Hat of the Spider

I think it’s good practice as a DM to let players gain the magic items used against them, as opposed, as we see often in published modules, to inventing contrived reasons to keep it away from them. The PCs killed a Goblin Boss spider-rider last session who wore this weird hat, so here it is.

Hat of the Spider

Wondrous item, rare (requires attunement)

While wearing this hat, you gain the following benefits:

  • You ignore movement restrictions caused by webbing.
  • You have the ability to comprehend and verbally communicate with spiders.
  • You can use an action to conjure a Swarm of Spiders (Monster manual: Swarm of Insects statistics) within 90′ of you that will be under your control for 10 minutes and then disappears. Once used, this property of the hat can’t be used again until next dawn.

Magic Items for Halloween!

Handbag of the Crawling Hand

Wondrous Item, uncommon (requires attunement)

This bag can holdup 40 pounds, not exceeding a volume of 2 cubic feet. Inside is a (undead) crawling hand that helps you by retrieving any item in the bag without the need to use an action. If the bag is ever damaged beyond repair, the crawling hand exits the bag and attacks the nearest target.

Grave-cured Tobacco

John-constantine

Expandable Item, uncommon

Air-dried in the long disused Best Forgotten massgrave, grave-cured tobacco is smoked mostly by the Vestige residents for its vaunted power of warding evil spirits, useful in this sad neighborhood. Outside of the Vestige few folks, except perhaps those with an intense superstitious inclination, feel the need to pay its steep cost.

Effects:

  • Undead have disadvantage on attack vs smoker for 10 minutes
  • Blowing smoke at an undead (5′), as a bonus action, triggers a frightened effect (wisdom, DC 13)

Average price: 5sp for 12 uses
