Another regular feature I intend to do: Magical Material Tuesday! I suspect people would think Magical Materials are better to be discussed on a day starting with M, but to that I say balderdash. Magic is something that can be discussed any day of the week.
Pipe of Smoke
Aura moderate conjuration; CL 9th
Slot —; Price 90,000 gp; Weight —
This long-handled black pipe always smolders and smokes faintly with sweet-smelling smoke, even when unlit. By smoking the pipe, a creature can cause thick, viscous smoke to billow out, filling an adjacent space with a viscous, swirling fog, as solid fog. This fog disappears instantly if the smoker releases their hold on the pipe.
On following rounds, the creature smoking the pipe can command the cloud to:
- Expand into an additional, adjacent 5 foot square, up to a total of 10 squares
- Move, causing it to fill a new cluster of adjacent spaces within 60 feet of at least one space the cloud previously occupied.
- Pick up or manipulate an object in or adjacent to one of its spaces, so long as the objects weighs no more than 175 lbs.
- Grab a creature in or adjacent to one of its spaces. The smoke cloud can make a grapple or bull rush, with a CMB of +11 plus one for each additional square the smoke occupies. A creature grappled by the smoke cloud remains grappled until it escapes, or the smoke dissipates.
Requirements Craft Wondrous Item, solid fog, telekinesis; Cost 45,000 gp
