Handy Haversack Challenge

Pathfinder First Edition General Discussion

1 person marked this as a favorite.

My challenge to you is thus: you have unlimited funds, fill the 120lb capacity of a Handy Haversack completely. Let's find the funnest/silliest/most-utility loadouts.

1) Mundane and Alchemical items only. No magic items
2) Nothing can only be in there to sell or use as currency
3) Paizo products only, preference to having everything be on the PRD.

Ready... GO!

2 gnome or halfling hirelings, plus enough soap to fill up the remaining space?

Anvil, parachute, balloon (+ airpump), skateboard with mast & sail, rocket, massive hammer (no, wait - that might be an actual Paizo item), bowl of birdseed, blank signboard + can of paint, spyglass, . . .

Lame that magic is excluded.

My witch has a king crab familiar, a bucket, and a decanter of endless water in his haversack.

Let me see.

Fill the bag with 120 cubic feet of scrolls of exploding runes, then flyer bomb a kingdom.
Fill the bag with 120 cubic feet of dung and bomb an unsuspecting politician.
Attach a window to the opening of the bag and use the bag as a submarine, just rig up a control system to guide the bag through the water.
If you are a fan of the dust of dryness, fill the bag with an Ocean's worth of dust of dryness beads to flood an enemy stronghold.
Fill the bag with skeletons if you are a necromancer, or better yet shadows, for that pocket army feel.
Use the bag to smuggle people across borders.

Oops, I guess most of this applies to a bag of holding.

A Handy Haversack filled with 24 Handy Haversacks, each of which are filled with another 24 Handy Haversacks, which in turn are filled with more, so on and so on until you destroy the multiverse
