"The Orcish Occupation took more than three hundred years." This right here was my favorite part. It blindsided me, and makes the entire submission utterly reek of realism. A simple, expedient solution is adopted "for the duration", and ends up changing the entire society when the duration is about 4-5 generations.
For normal campaigns it use might be limited depending on the duration required to be still before the true effect comes into play. I would probably make it, once discovered, as easy to do the camoflauge as the masking effect. I picture somebody sneaking across a battlefield with it and it is a gruesome thought.
Could be used for hunters as well. Could be the perfect thing on farms and such with pastures to lure in the deadly surrounding predators that have been eating their sheep/cows etc.. Sort of like bait to draw them in for the kill. Could make a couple gold pieces doing that for some villages over run. Go to Comment
Finishing the triad of items that make you seem (Un)Dead, I find this will not fall among the best. Creating for actual game purposes is the only excuse for me. Hmmm... it even has a very brief history... not a good sign. So, come on people! Give this item what it deserves.

I'm there with you... although, the lesson this item imparts is not frustration - it is that not everything may be possible or reachable (though there are a few extreme theories on how to open it *cough*). If you learn to accept that, you can use that indestructible box to achieve other impressive feats - and still have the fun with the occasional attempt. ;) Go to Comment
Great item manfred! Us vetrans showing how it should be done! Yhea!
Even if the player gives up on opening the box, they still have a one foot cube of unbreakable stuff. That could be put to use in remakable ways. They can't work it into anything more useful, mind you, but it has a purpose.
Some unintended uses could be:
Battering Ram head.
Jam the mechanism of a crushing trap.
Trebuche stone - if it's heavy enough.
Maul head. -mauls are big mallets Go to Comment
