Talk:Deeppockets (5e Spell)

From D&D Wiki

Jump to: navigation, search

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)
