Hey I was wondering.I saw a thread about a moving base for PCs and after seeing all the responses it got me thinking.Why does nobody remember or know the Folding Boat.Like it says it can easily in its bigger form hold 15 people.Need a house?Folding boat.Need a wall between enemies?Folding boat.Suddenly teleported in the middle of the ocean?Folding boat.Apart from that you could come up with many stupid uses for the thing and nobody ever mentions it.Also if it can easily hold 15 people doesn't that mean the 24 feet measure for the bigger version is wrong?
I'm going to agree with SorrySleeping with this one. The Folding Boat, Scrivener's Desk, and Expedition Pavilion would all be used a lot more if their price tags were cut a few thousand shorter. I like these items a lot, but I just can't justify their purchases when I'm focusing on making sure I don't kick the bucket in combat or dungeons. It's easier to survive sleeping outside than it is to survive a Dragon or a crowd of beefed up tactical zombies.
People have and do use the folding boat for just such purposes. As for the size question, it does not say it can hold 15 people comfortably. As a military veteran, I can confirm that you can pack a lot of people into an 8 by 24 foot space.
"The boat can hold 4 people comfortably, while the ship carries 15 with ease"
I'm confused how one would address this on a grid though, as if we deal with the ship as a single row of 5 ft squares that's about 3 people per square, while if it's 2 rows that's still at least 1.5-2 people per square.
