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!

Genius Loci's Outlook for Feb/March 2016

Gate File 001 - First Approach
This is the next and the big project for the month of February for my Patreon and the one I want to push for public release in March/April.  The Gate File is being developed for 5th Edition SRD and will incorporate Modern rules and make suggestions as to that fact.

The Smoke Giant's Heir
A second 5th Edition SRD release, The Smoke Giant's Heir was originally meant to be published last July but ran into a number of difficulties including lost maps, Scribus and libre files becoming corrupted due to system failures as my tower died a slow and horrible death.  The Text is written out for this one but one map still needs to be redrawn and the layout needs to be put through Serif now that I have it back.

More Fantasy AgeI don't know yet what I want to do exactly but I want to start doing a fan version of my favorite MMO using Green Ronin's Fantasy Age system.  Obviously this will be a "serial numbers filed off" deal for the possibility …
