Wurphle's Packed Lunch (abbreviated as WPL) is a miscellaneous spell which summons a wizard's lunch sack, a permanent wearable container to keep fresh items in that preserve better. (?? How much better? Do they preserve forever? 5 minutes extra? 6 hours? Needs tests).

Spell Details

The spell costs XX gp to cast and takes up 10 units of mind space.

The colour of crystal you use (blue, green, red, yellow) is placed into the finished item, and the colour affects the outcome.

A large yellow crystal gives; "A gossamer web of octarine glows dimly on its surface, emanating an aura of vacuum preservation." A large red crystal? A large blue crystal? A large green crystal?

You will consume over A$8000 worth of expensive and hard to get components in casting the spell.

The lunch sack is named "white wizard's lunch sack" for Circle/White wizards casting it. (do other Orders get it coloured to suit their Order?)

Skills

Casting

Syntax:

cast Wurphle's Packed Lunch


Message:

You prepare to cast Wurphle's Packed Lunch.
You hold out a sapient pearwood seed in front of you and force it to sprout with your mind, weaving its branches as they grow into a wooden frame.
You neatly sew a bear fur over the frame to form a white bag, imbuing it with magic with every pass of your small silver needle.
You whittle a six-foot riving of oak into an intricate magical rune and place it onto the bag, where it sticks in place.  With the leftover oak, you fashion a simple clasp to hold the bag closed.
Finally, you hold up a large yellow crystal above the rune and reach into it with your mind, harnessing its power for the purpose of preservation.
Crackling arcs of yellow energy surge out of the crystal and play over the surface of the white wizard's lunch sack for a moment before sinking in reluctantly.
