Talk:Deeppockets (5e Spell)
From D&D Wiki
Does this spell increase the volume available as well? All the containers/etc have a limited volume as well as a weight limit. Could someone feasible store a few chairs inside the pocket, for instance?
Additionally, a ritual 8 hour spell for this benefit is pretty powerful, and would likely make the spell tenser's floating disk useless. A spell that overpowers another of the same level with the same purpose should ideally be avoided. It should compete with it, not overshadow. If the pockets had a bigger limitation than 200 lbs, which is effectively just under 1/2 a bag of holding at will, say turning a pocket into the carrying capability of a sack, or a very reduced duration <2 hours, or even removing the ritual tag, then it would still see significant use, and be more in keeping with balance.--Kahz (talk) 06:35, 8 October 2016 (MDT)
- The intent is that there's no volume limit, but you still have to be able to fit it through the pocket opening (so no chairs). You can put a treasure chest or a body on a floating disk, but you can't put those things in your pocket. I expected DM to adjudicate this, but you can use 6 inches across as a hard limit. I viewed it as a constant background utility spell so wanted it to use up a "spells known" slot but not a spell slot, but I'll have a think about it. Marasmusine (talk) 10:40, 8 October 2016 (MDT)
