New Magic Item: Bag of Worthless Dust  

Posted by Spenser Isdahl in , ,

Zabuzel wiped the specks of blood from the hem of his cloak and aimed his rifle at the last man standing in the hot saloon. "W-What do you want? Please, j-just let me—" "Silence," the drow gunman growled, "The bag you took from me. You know the one. Where is it?" The man looked confused, pointing behind the bar. "You came for that? But... why? It's worthless." Zabuzel let the man finish his sentence before pulling the trigger. "The same could be said of many things, friend."

Bag of Worthless Dust
Aura moderate conjuration; CL 9th
Slot —; Price 2,500 gp; Weight 10 lbs.


This nondescript hemp sack constantly leaks a small amount of grey dust from gaps in its fibers. Without the command word, all that can be found in the bag is 10 lbs. of this dust. However, with the proper command word, an item placed in the bag, under the dust, becoming stored safely in an extradimensional space. The bag can contain up to 8 cubic feet or 80 pounds of material. Even when so filled, the bag always weighs only 10 pounds.

The stored items can be retrieved by speaking the same command word and clearly mentally picturing the item while reaching into the dust. Alternatively, all stored items can be retrieved at once by speaking the command word and dumping the bag's dust onto the ground.

If emptied of dust (either with or without the command word), the bag cannot be used again for one week as the dust magically re-accumulates.


Requirements Craft Wondrous Item, glitterdust, secret chest; Cost 1,250 gp (+100 XP for D&D)

Hmm could I flavor this to be a bag of copper pieces?

Also how does it react in extra-dimensional spaces?

Definitely could be reflavored. Since the bag isn't as directly tied to an extradimensional space as, say, a handy haversack or a bag of holding (since you need a command word to reach the space), I'd say that a bag of useless dust placed in another extradimensional container doesn't cause any averse affects, but cannot be activated while in that space. Another extradimensional container placed in the bag of worthless dust, however, would probably rip a hole in the planes and destroy the containers.
