Wurphle's Packed Lunch (abbreviated as WPL) is a miscellaneous spell which creates a wizard's lunch sack, a wearable container to preserve items within.

Spell Details

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

You will consume over &&&&&&&&+3200000 A$8000 worth of expensive and hard to get components in casting the spell.

It creates a permanent wearable container that preserves fresh items within for 24 hours or more (possibly forever?), as long as the sack is kept closed.

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?).

Components & Results

[crystal colour]

  • The colour of large crystal you use (blue, green, red, yellow) is placed into the finished item, and the colour affects the outcome.
[crystal colour] [type of preservation]
yellow vacuum preservation
green caustic preservation
blue icy preservation
red fiery preservation

[fur colour]

  • The lunch sack is named white wizard's lunch sack for an undyed bear fur, which is white.
  • If you dye the fur first, with any ink colour, the [fur colour] will appear in the item name, and in the description, for example a silver flecked black bear fur will create a silver flecked black wizard's lunch sack.

[wood type]

  • 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 known variations of length riving are: apple wood, ash, beech, birch, blackthorn, cedar, cherry wood, chestnut, cypress, ebony, elm, hawthorn, hazel, holly, ironwood, larch, linden, mahogany, oak, olive wood, pine, rowan, sycamore, walnut, willow, yew.

[thread colour silk/cotton]

  • The final item refers to the colour and type of the thread on the needle.
  • There are a great many thread colours available around the Disc.
  • Silk and cotton are commonly available thread type.
Result
[fur colour] wizard's lunch sack

This rustic-looking pouch is essentially a large [fur colour] fur bag designed to be worn from the waist.  Sewn together with neat [thread colour silk/cotton] stitching, the fur is supported internally by a wooden frame to help it retain its shape and a simple [wood type] clasp at the opening allows the sack to be closed securely.  A mysterious, glowing [crystal colour] 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 [type of preservation].

The [fur colour] wizard's lunch sack is about a foot long and about six inches wide.  It is made of fur and looks like you could wear it.  It can hold about 8 pounds, or about forty items.

Weight: 4/9 lb
Value: $17.50

Self Success:

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.
