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 300 gp to cast and takes up 10 units of mind space.


Failure will consume the components, and cause damage to the caster (exactly 500 damage has been measured), but not damage any items, or anyone else in the room. It is unknown what type of damage it is - possibly fire damage (try fire HEB defense?).


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; "emanating an aura of vacuum preservation."

A large green crystal gives; "emanating an aura of caustic preservation."

A large red crystal gives;

A large blue crystal gives;


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 an undyed bear fur. (does dying the bear fur first give a different coloured sack?) The spell DOES take a dyed bear fur as a valid component (but no successful cast with one, yet)

You can use a two foot riving or a six foot riving of any wood type, from the woodwork shop in Sto-Lat (other lengths will assumedly work).

The final item refers to the colour of thread on the needle, the type of wood used for the riving, and the type of crystal, in it's description, for example;

This rustic-looking pouch is essentially a large white fur bag designed to be worn from the waist.  Sewn together with neat sienna silk stitching, the fur is supported internally by a wooden frame to help it retain its shape and a simple oak clasp at the opening allows the sack to be closed securely.  A mysterious, glowing yellow rune carved from oak has been affixed to the sack's surface.  While the exact purpose of the rune is indeterminable, its exciting sparkliness really hammers in the lunch sack's wizardliness to any onlooker.
A gossamer web of octarine glows dimly on its surface, emanating an aura of vacuum preservation.
