So, it basically is a magically trapped box.

As an item it is okay, but you have neglected a tell tale feature allowing the PCs to avoid a fiery fate.

Excepting the false bottom, the box itself is not terribly useful. I guess couriers could travel with it in their wagons, with state secrets and the like safely kept in the box. Highwaymen, spies and nosy people would get a nasty surprise as flames torched those revealing documents.

Another use could be nobles keeping it in their basement, filling it with fiery oils and keeping diamonds in the hidden compartment.

The box should REALLY have a tell tale warning the PCs of the dangers within. An example could be scorch marks on the rim or a charred corpse in front of the box.

2.5/5. Needs more work. Go to Comment

IMHO:



I get the idea, but the write up is really confusing.  



 



Edits



"anything you don't want to keep others away from are kept in this chest."  I don't think the word don't should be in this sentence. 



In the first sentence of the last "paragraph", I think spy should be plural. 



Thought:



This is a good canidate for the 100 word treatment.

Its a straight up item - seems a modern item pushed into fantasy. Not saying it does not fit, but it would probably serve better on a list of spycraft items.

Man-Eating Grapes!

       By: Murometz

A wild species, vinus homophagus, more akin to sea-grape rather than the terrestrial variety, is not a monster despite its fanciful name. The grapes, a deep purple color when in bloom, and oozing dewdrops of perspiration, like the most prized and delectable of drinking wine grapes, do however deserve their moniker. Wine made from this fruit, is deadly to most humanoids, as is the raw berry, if plucked and eaten from the vine. It is the unnatural chemical concoction found within the fruit’s tart skin, which gives the man-eating grape its name. The chemical stew found inside each berry, functions as a necrotic agent, the same as found in some species of venomous snakes. The grapes literally eat the victim from the inside out, via cell death, dissolving organs and flesh in quick succession.

The tribes of Pra-Oohk Crater, from the jungles of Ghlush are known to sell the fermented “wine” of this grape to merchants of distant lands. Sadly, the taste of the concoction is divine when first quaffed, and even worse, the man-eating grape wine will never detect as poisonous via mundane means, its horrid natures somehow masking all attempts. Luckily the man-eating grapes are extremely rare, and endemic to humid jungles.
