Magic Item - The Brewer's Bag

Now that the first round of Tenkar's Tavern's OSR Superstar contest is over I can release the magic item I created for the contest. Enjoy and I hope it is of some use to some one out there!

Thank +Erik Tenkar and everyone who supported him in running this contest and best of luck to everyone who made it to round two!


The Brewer's Bag


Created long ago by a dwarven mage with an interest in micro-brewing, the Brewer's bag is a small felt bag trimmed in gold and featuring a the symbol of a stylized hammer and pint. Some magical theorists have postulated that the symbol on the Bag is that of a legendary dwarven pub in the fabled lost city of Mu. Unfortunately just as many theorists have asserted that the symbol was a later addition to the Bag and is utterly meaningless.


The Brewer's Bag is said to be invulnerable to magic and physical damage. Thus the Bag grants its owner a -[+] 1 to AC[AAC].

The Brewer's Bag is also magically imbued to tap into a pocket dimension and thus can never be filled. However, only items related to the brewer's craft and trade can be placed within the Bag. If any other item or belonging is placed within the Bag that item will be ejected at such a speed that it will deal 1d4 damage to anyone unlucky enough to be hit by it (75% chance, save negates).

Finally the most legendary property of The Brewer's Bag are the colored marbles held within it. According to magical theorists The Brewer's Bag contains an infinite amount of marbles of five different colors. When the owner of the Bag attempts to retrieve any item from The Brewer's Bag she has a 75% chance of removing one of the five colored marbles (see table below). When placed in any container of up to one quart the marble will dissolve and transmute the water in an alcohol associated with the marble's color.

Marble Color
Type of Alchol
50% Chance Red or White Wine

The Robathen's Coin Parts 1 -3

A long time ago I released a short story on drivethrufiction called "The Rabathen's Coin - An Arame Tale" that was meant to be the start of a series staring a mysterious thief named Arame.  Well, five years later and I have sold maybe six copies.  With that in mind I figured I might as well break it up into two or three parts and post in on the blog.

Thoughts are welcome as I am always interested in what others think of my original works.

The stench of rotten fish, sweat, mildewed wood and the ocean rose up from the black waters of the harbor in a visible mist that hung over the free trade city of Wickend adding to the already strong reek of human filth and cheap ale. The setting sun, unable to pierce the vile mist, washed over the crumbling buildings that lined the twisting streets of the Old District. From open doors and windows came the sounds of life, true life, of men laughing and boasting, of women flirting and dealing in their trades. To an outsider, the Old Distr…

I am starting to see a theme evolving here ... and it wasn't even planned.  Enjoy, and feedback is always welcomed!

Magic Item - Arcane Gauntlet

Arcane Gauntlets are small devices of leather and copper fitted to the wearer's primary hand and feature a small, thin gem imbued with pure arcane energies affixed to the palm. As a standard action the wearer of an Arcane Gauntlet may release its energies up to four times in a single encounter safely, and up to eight times if the wearer is willing to endure the burning residual heat from sustained use of the device.  If an Arcane Gauntlet is used to its maximum effect (eight times) it is inoperable until such a time as its wearer takes a long rest.
