Wondrous item, uncommon

The kibisis is a magic sack that Perseus borrowed from the nymphs during his quest to kill the Gorgon Medusa.

The kibisis appears to be a common cloth sack about 2 feet by 4 feet in size.

This kibisis has an interior space considerably larger than its outside dimensions, roughly 2 feet in diameter at the mouth and 10 feet deep. The kibisis can hold up to 1000 pounds, not exceeding a volume of 128 cubic feet. The kibisis weighs 30 pounds, regardless of its contents.

Retrieving an item from the kibisis requires an action. If the kibisis is overloaded, pierced, or torn, it ruptures and is destroyed, and its contents are scattered in the Astral Plane. If the kibisis is turned inside out, its contents spill forth, unharmed, but the kibisis must be put right before it can be used again. Breathing creatures inside the kibisis can survive up to a number of minutes equal to 10 divided by the number of creatures (minimum 1 minute), after which time they begin to suffocate. Placing a kibisis inside an extradimensional space created by a handy haversack, portable hole, or similar item instantly destroys both items and opens a gate to the Astral Plane. The gate originates where the one item was placed inside the other. Any creature within 10 feet of the gate is sucked through it to a random location on the Astral Plane. The gate then closes.

The gate is one-way only and can’t be reopened.
