Egg of Wonderby Andrew Theisen
Type: Potion (alternate medium)
Source: RC 239
An egg of wonder is a magical liquid contained within an eggshell. It is similar to a potion or oil in that it can be used only once, and can contain a spell of up to 3rd level that has a casting time of less than 1 minute. Eggs of wonder can contain only spells that have an effect, rather than spells that target one or more creatures (like potions or oils). Generally, eggs of wonder duplicate conjuration/summoning types of spells. In all other respects, eggs of wonder function just as normal potions and oils. Creation of an egg of wonder requires the Brew Potion feat, as well as the appropriate spell to be placed within the egg.
Physical Description: An egg of wonder is the size and shape of a chicken's egg, though they come in a variety of colours.
Identifying Eggs of Wonder: Unlike potions or oils, the properties of an egg of wonder cannot be sampled without cracking the egg (and thus activating the spell). Eggs of wonder that carry similar spells tend to look alike, however, so experimentation can lead PCs to be able to discern the properties of a particular egg based on past experience.
Activation: Eggs of wonder are activated by cracking open the egg, either by smashing it in one's hand, dropping it on the ground, or throwing it at another object. An egg of wonder can be thrown up to 60' with no range penalties. Cracking an egg of wonder is a standard action that provokes attacks of opportunity.
Random Generation: To generate eggs of wonder randomly, roll on the list below. If an egg of wonder contains a summoning spell (such as summon nature's ally), randomly determine the type of creature summoned from the lists in the appropriate section of the PHB when the egg is activated.
