Tell me, /tg/. Tell me stories of the fantastical, wondrous or downright bizarre magical and mundane items you have found in your travels. What have you brought back from the dungeons and other dark places of the earth?

A stone room.

Pretty well sized. About twenty five by fifteen feet inside. A lot thicker outside, because hewen stone walls are 6' thick.

And it flew. Two miles an hour.

The Stronghold Builder's Guidebook was to blame for it, and it became a mix of home, transportation and plot device.

It could not fly itself though, you had to turn a wheel and work levers to make it go and it was easy to get lost before we had good maps and a compass. So fucking lost.

I can't tell them what it really is, they are only aware of the stats so the cleric won't sell it. She thinks it will come in super handy, though thankfully she hasn't gotten a chance to use it. She keeps saying I should use it as a rogue, but no way am I falling victim to an item like that.

Had a player in my group who was playing a Kender right. Not a kleptomaniac, good natured, helped out the party, used to give them their gear if they thought that the other party members could use it more (Because who needs a magic sword when, when your best friend could get hurt without it?)

Clearing out a dungeon, I give the party a burlap sack, that every time you reach into it, there's a burlap sack. The old sack won't produce another sack, but the new sack will, and it goes on forever.

The Kender decided he wanted to see what was at the bottom.

Smothered himself because he wasn't paying attention, and the room filled with bags. I warned him like 6 times, but he said that his character would just keep pulling out bags.

The entire party chipped in to bring him back, they loved his character so much... and they burned the bag, because he would have done it again.

It's kind of mundane, but in one game my Barbarian had a greatsword that, if I dropped, thrown, or discarded outside of its sheath, would return to my hands (or its sheath if my hands were occupied at the moment) ten seconds later, or at the start of my next turn if we were fighting something. There's a surprising variety of uses for something like that.

One of the most fun items ever encountered was a magical fairy tale book our party found while tooling around and politicking in a city.

A wealthy noble has a terminally ill daughter. So, to try and make her as happy as possible, he commissions the creation of a cursed fairytale book. When she reads it, she gets turned into the appropriate character from whatever fairytale, temporarily, until she finishes the story or achieves the prerequisite for the character.

At least, that's what was implied. For us? We read it, the GM rolls a percent die for what fairy tale (using a list of real-life ones,) and then rolls a percent die for what character from the fairy tale. (most have =< 4 characters)

We then get transformed into that character, and left there until we get curse removed or accomplish the prerequisite. If you get turned into the lumberjack from Little Red Ridinghood, you have to kill a wolf/werewolf. If you get turned into a knight, you have to kill a dragon/rescue a maiden. If you get turned into a maiden, you might have to get rescued. You might have to kiss prince charming. Whatever.

So, given an artifact level device that had the potential to backfire horribly on us, what did we do? Handed it off to our trollbro cleric who used it for disguises when getting pursued by guards.

It was also responsible for turning my wizard's familiar into Sleeping Beauty. Except that was its last charge, so it broke, and my daemonic familiar got stuck that way.

Me (NE rogue) and buddy (CN fighter) found a waterskin filled with a viscous fluid. We had just bested some fucks in a tournament, and I had snuck on board the guys ship whilst the fighter drew attention acting crazy. On the trip home from the Tournament, we convince some poor bastard that it is some badass drink. Which it sort of was...

DM called it Treant Sap. It made the poor bastard into an insane, murderous treant. On a ship. In the middle of the sea.

We ended up snapping some ropes and swinging the mast around to knock it into the ocean.

Me and buddy immediately thought to poison a waterwell in the city we were going to. Problem: we died before we could do it.

I've given out lots of unusual loot over the years, but the one item that caused the most excitement was an old pre-fall Imperial map. Not like I really meant much with it, but my players got so excited I ended up drawing the entire thing, and it spawned a rather long chain of adventures.

A big biomechanical dragonfly. Unfortunately it was damaged, nobody knew how to fix it (or even use it apart from pulling random levers), and in a section of Acheron we could only get into through a portal smaller than the dragonfly.

However we also found a smaller version styled after a damselfly, which we took and gave it to our PC that doesn't have her own fly speed, although she might soon get flying armour, since we looted a giant-sized set of adamantine full plate with some wing mechanisms which at some point we're taking to an artificer to see if he can't get a human-sized version of it going.
