The Everlasting Cantine


A small round cantine, that is strapped around its wearer with a leather strip. It has the ability to never run dry. It will be able to contain any type of liquid such as acid or lava. It will also never run out.

A Gift given to a desert, dryed out community during a harsh sandstorm followed by a drought. The woman who created the gift was by a powerful female sorceror who wanted to help save the very town she almost destroyed. For it was her blunder that almost killed them all. She was practicing her weather manipulating ablities. She thought the desert was desolent but it was actually home to a small community. She sent the sandstorm and drought towards, what she thought was, the empty wasteland. Feeling sorry for her actions she united the entire community with one cantine that helped the entire village get the water needed to survive until the drought ended and their water.  returned.

Magical Properties:

Once a different liquid is dropped into the cantine, its everlasting supply will become that of which is dropped in.
For example: Just one drop of water will change whatever liquid was already in the container.

The container is unbreakable and can even contain acid, lava, or even blood. (( Vampires who don’t want to kill people would like that ;) ))

Short, but solid backstory.

A bit munchkin. A vampire with one of these looses any villian background and becomes a superpowered junkie. Pouring out lava, acid, or molten gold is way too powerful. Imagine a never ending canteen of spider poision. Yikes!

If it was limited to potable fluids, juices, wines, milk and of course, water, it would be less over powerful.

You could balance it by letting each user only have access to a limited portion each day. Say about 3 gallons of whatever's inside. It's still never ending, because you can pour out more tomorrow, and you'll have enough to survive if it's water, but it won't be an instant artificial volcano.

Brace canteen in place, top down, un cork, vacate premisies.

OK - I can see why it exists but there's no justification in making it never-ending - way too munchkin

Also I agree with Agar - should be restricted to water or other potable fluids

2/5 because it's a nice idea but way too powerful

What's so nice about it? even 2nd edition DnD features Decanters of Endless Water, and they can be seen in several games... Nothing New in the West.

Sorry I almost destroyed your home and livelyhood. Here, have this shiny canteen.

Not a bad item, if overpowered. I think that the canteen should have no special resistances, and would thus be destroyed by acid, or lava, while normal beverages would be fine.

Good idea, but I have to agree with the rest, too much power. I like Scrasamax's idea to remove the resistances.

Well you have to put the drop of lava in there..that can't be easy. But other stuff molten gold...I have known PCs that would lame this up all day.

Nuttin wrong with it-big mojo, small is all contextual

A wish in reverse

       By: Murometz

The Pcs discover an ancient, dusty oil lamp, somewhere in the bowels of a dungeon. Naturally they "rub it", and out pops a wizened, old djinn. So far so good. Then it speaks...

"Ah at last, at last I am free! Now grant me my wish!"

When the PCs explain that they are the ones that should be granted a wish, the malignant djinn explains to them that his particular oil-lamp has a curse placed upon it. Whomsoever releases the entity inside shall be geased to grant the djinn's wish to the best of their ability.

Groans ensue from the party. The djinn rubs his wrinkled hands, grins, and proceeds to name his wish. What could it be?
