Full Item Description
Sid’s Bag of Treasures is an exquisite bag or pack of holding. These bags come in all shapes and sizes, but they are always top notch. For starters, they store far more than
a normal bag their size, and weigh far less.
Water proof, acid proof, and spell resistant, these bags were made for the long haul. The mouth will stretch wider than visibly suggested to allow storage of unusually bulky items, and a command word will cause the bag to transform into a large chest for easier searches for your most prized possessions
Sid is many things. A violinist, a prankster, a lady’s man, a scoundrel, a poet, an enchanter, a vagabond. The list goes on and on.
One thing that Sid isn’t, is poor. He is considered a world class enchanter and lives better than most kings…when he isn’t traveling that is.
Sid is rumored to possess the Philosopher’s Stone, and is considered by many to be one of the most powerful men in the world.
Sid literally has a vast treasury of stuff at his disposal. This means that he is not only extremely wealthy, but is also the go-to-guy for rare items.
He is a well-respected trader of rare and valuable items. His collection may be extensive, but his vast knowledge of ancient and valuable relics and collector’s items is unmatched by even the most sought after traders.
Sid’s Bag of Treasures does indeed have an extra-dimensional storage space. What only Sid knows, is that that space is accessible from two locations.
The first is from the mouth of the bag, as is normal. The second is from a special wooden chest that belongs to Sid. Each time he makes one of his bags of holding, he attunes a special key of his to that location. When he places the key in the chest, it selects the next location that it is attuned to, and anchors the chest to that location. Neither the key nor the chest will work without the other.
The second entrance is a sort of anomaly. It is supposed to be impossible to have more than one entrance to a single extra-dimensional space, however, Sid accidentally stumbled upon a back-door when he mis-casted the enchantment for a normal bag of holding. Normally, a mis-casting causes the space to implode upon itself, permanently severing all anchors to that space, but to Sid’s surprise, the anchor remained intact. The unique result allowed an infinite number of anchors per location. The exact process of doing this is extremely dangerous, and known only by Sid himself.
The bag itself is not detectable as a cursed item. In fact, it isn’t cursed at all. It works exactly like a normal bag of holding. It is the extra-dimensional space that is unusual, in that it has two entrances, and that it is imploded.
Sid is very careful not be be obvious about drawing from his many bags. He never takes more than one item, and it is usually very small. Something that could be easily lost. He especially prefers to take items that have little obvious value, but have great, but obscure worth. Sid also never takes from the same location more than once every month.
Every now and then, Sid will break his own rule. If there is a mythic, legendary, or drastically valuable item in one of his bags, he will give into temptation, even knowing that the bag will be discarded as cursed, and never used by that person again.
In such a case, he will simply lock the other extra-dimensional entrance, effectively disenchanting the now empty bag, and leaving Sid with all of it’s prior contents. Then after a month, he will re-open the entrance, and if he is lucky, the bag will have been inherited by a new owner.
