Bookkeeper Inkpot

Wondrous item, rare

This glass vessel looks like an ordinary inkpot. A quill fashioned from an ostrich feather accompanies the inkpot. You can use the vessel to contain a bookkeeper. A willing bookkeeper moves to the inkpot, but an unwilling specimen must succeed on a DC 13 Charisma saving throw or be transferred to the inkpot, making you the bookkeeper’s new “creator.”

While the bookkeeper is contained within the vessel, it suffers no harm due to being away from its bound book, but it cannot use any of its abilities that apply to it being in a bound book. Dipping the quill in the inkpot and writing in a book binds the bookkeeper to the new book.

If the inkpot is found as treasure, there is a 50% chance it contains a bookkeeper. Variant inkpots work for inklings (see Creature Codex).
