Pillow of Sleep
It is a nice fluffy pillow, filled with soft down, covered in a soft, nice fabric. It is soooo comfortable. *yawn* You could just nod offffff when layyyying on .......... *snore*
Full Item Description
It is your standard fluffy feather pillow. The stitching on the borders are quite elaborate, but it looks more like a sign of quality rather than arcane patterning.
This is a classic enchantment, part of most spell colleges. The creator of this enchantment has been lost to history.
Soon after one lays on or sits upon the item, they will feel relaxed. They will then feel drowsey. Soon they will drop into a deep deep sleep. If kept in contact with the pillow, they can not awaken for at least 8 hours, possible more if they are used to sleeping in, fatigued, or tired.
This is not an Evil item per say. It is a handy part of the Evil Cultist toolkit.
This is an excellent tool for evil cultists, allowing them to kidnap people out from their beds or couches with a minimum of fuss or muss. They can even give it to the victim's spouse/ sleeping partner, so they can then kidnap the victim and no amount of screaming or noise will wake them. It just takes another break in to eventually reclaim the pillow.

You know, I am kind of overwhelmed of all those items that turn you to evil and make you a bad boy. This is a nice and innocent enough addition for any Evil Cultist or a hospital.
Logical and sweet, perfect for resting. I can well imagine creating a slightly weaker variant when the sleeper can wake up to strong stimuli from outside.
Note: it wasn't said, but it has to: really rough handling or wounding the sleeper will break the spell.
I agree with what manfred said, but I judge from main site standards. This site certainly has promise, but like all MoonHunter posts it is a good ideas posted for remembrance and not for presentation. Too short and too little detail.
Not every item is an 'epic piece'. Many items are just 'standard enchantments' that any worker of magic might have access to.
People tend to forget simple, uselful items, that would make the mage a good income. If magic and enchantment's exist, this is an 'every mage' sort of spell/ item. Not every mage is going to make a +12 sword of epic slaying. Why spend decades of your life making this thing, while you can bump out a couple of dozen of these pillows a year, make a good living that allows you to 'see the world' and 'seek a little adventure' now and again.
Aurora, where are you?
Fluffy magic item I so want. I understand that it should be a common magic item that mages make to pay the bills so they can get down to some real magic. I also see that this is a serious part of the Evil Bad Guy tool kit.
I love the pillow, and can make up all the details I need for my own game! great item Moonhunter! so simple..yet so devious
Wish I had one... :)
I wish I had one too.
I fourth the desire to own one. It's simply so practical I don't feel it needs any real explanation. It's not a 5/5 post that makes you go "Woah... must... use..." but any DM or even a player can come up with a dozen clever uses for it. I especially like that it doesn't have that overwhelming aura of evil so many things have, it just has uses and 'misuses'.
Thus you understand the purpose of the item. It is a filler,an equipment list item, something that logically would exist in the world. In fact, many 'good' or respectable talismongers or enchanters would make such an item,. It just has.... uses.
Now if you are in a low magic/ low enchantment world, then it is an Evil Cultist specialty. Promise some things to a spirit... and poof a magic item.
