Clothing of Concealment


Sometimes, you just need to stash something away - some spare cash, a holdout weapon, your gender…

This item was pretty much the result of Shivamuffin creating the Bra of Holding and some of the comments therein. 
Full Item Description
Generally crafted in the form of common undergarments, these magical pieces of clothing actually contain extradimensional spaces of a moderate size, allowing items to be secreted away within them, as well as the body parts generally involved with said undergarments. This is of benefit to several groups of people; those who want a secure location to sequester small goods can readily stash them in the garment, as can those who are stashing items for more nefarious reasons. Given the likelihood of being searched in ‘intimate’ locations in many countries, these can be a very effective way to smuggle contraband into a location. Moreover, those unaware of the item’s nature are unlikely to find the stashed items even if it is checked.
A second and more unorthodox use of the item is as an aid in concealing one’s gender. Given the right fitting, and the decision to do so, the garments can be used to conceal the most noticeable sexual characteristics of a person - hiding a woman’s breasts in the pocket space, or a male’s genitalia, thus greatly facilitating the ability to disguise oneself as the opposite gender.
Originally created by a brother-sister duo of mage-thieves to facilitate in their sleight-of-hand thefts, the two also quickly discovered that they could use them to change their looks, making it possible to commit absurdly daring thefts and walk around in public without a qualm, leaving those fooled by them to hunt for a younger boy and girl rather than the mature and endowed rogues responsible. Eventually, once they had more than enough funds to live comfortably to live out their lives, the two quietly departed their old hunting grounds and set up shop in a distant city, selling their marvelous line of clothing to petty rogues and those paranoid of theft alike. Many others have since imitated the items, leading to many minor variants, such as girdles which allow for a trim figure but easy breathing, or gloves which hide overlarge and unsightly hands and fingers in smaller, more attractively-sized gloves, although the odd articulation of the fingers as the tips vanish into the extradimensional space at the fingertips of the gloves is usually a giveaway.
Magic/Cursed Properties
These items simply function as minor extradimensional pockets; most hold only a small amount, perhaps a cubic foot, more than sufficient for the needs of most. Larger pockets spaces do exist, of course; the girdles commonly are an example of such. Used for gender disguise, they provide a significant bonus to the disguise check, and can provide a limited bonus on other forms of disguise, depending upon the clothing in question, at the GM’s discretion.

A useful item, though there might be disasterous effects for the wearer if they were to enter an anti-magic area.

What happens if a hole is punched into the garment and it peirces one of the storage areas?

An anti-magic zone... That could be very, *very* nasty, depending on the GM. Perhaps even nasty along the lines of 'unexpected surgery' and such.

I'd say that piercing the extradimensional containment has the same effect of puncturing any other extradimensional container - it erupts, basically, which could be interestingly troublesome and rather painful if you've filled it with items - and painful in other ways if some of those items are weapons. Nothing quite like a female finding her bra to suddenly be filled with knives or a male having his codpiece suddenly unleash a bunch of arrows in the general region...

A good piece. The gender-hiding aspect is a nice touch.

Urbants-Creatures that move quickly around on their massive arms, and their "legs" dangle about from their torso, at about elbow length. They can move fairly quickly, but not as fast as an obese human, and can "jump" fairly high. Their "legs" are very powerful, and can kill with one blow. The bad thing is, Urbants cannot block attacks at their heads, which have relatively no neck, from the length of their legs being so short.
