Bag of Beans

Wondrous item, rare

Inside this heavy cloth bag are 3d4 dry beans. The bag weighs 1/2 pound plus 1/4 pound for each bean it contains. If you dump the bag’s contents out on the ground, they explode in a 10-­‐‑foot radius, extending from the beans. Each creature in the area, including you, must make a DC 15 Dexterity saving throw, taking 5d4 fire damage on a failed save, or half as much damage on a successful one. The fire ignites flammable objects in the area that aren’t being worn or carried. If you remove a bean from the bag, plant it in dirt or sand, and then water it, the bean produces an effect 1 minute later from the ground where it was planted. The GM can choose an effect from the following table, determine it randomly, or create an effect.




5d4 toadstools sprout. If a creature eats a
toadstool, roll any die. On an odd roll, the
eater must succeed on a DC 15 Constitution
saving throw or take 5d6 poison damage and
become poisoned for 1 hour. On an even roll
the eater gains 5d6 temporary hit points for
1 hour.

plane of existence as the statue, it knows
where you are. The statue becomes
inanimate after 24 hours.

A fruit tree grows. It has 1d10 + 20 fruit,

magic potions, while one acts as an
ingested poison of the GM's choice. The
tree vanishes after 1 hour. Picked fruit
remains, retaining any magic for 30 days.


A nest of 1d4 + 3 eggs springs up. Any
creature that eats an egg must make a DC

scores. On a failed save, the creature takes

height of the GM's choice. The top leads

view, a cloud giant's castle, or a different
plane of existence.
