Tenkar's Minor Magical Tidbits - Rat Pack

Rat Pack

This appears to be a stuffed “plush” toy rat, but if the activation word on the label behind the right ear is read, it turns into a 3’ long white rat with three large saddle bags over it’s back. It can carry up to 150 pounds that might otherwise fit into three large backpacks.

The rat follows behind it’s master by a distance of 3-5 feet, and is considered to be AC 2/18 with 20 HPs if attacked. The rat may hiss or spit at it’s attacker, but it has no attacks itself. If reduced to 0 or less HP, it reverts to stuffed toy rat form. Saves are made by using it’s master’s saving throw table.

The rat can remain in 3’ long rat form indefinitely. It needs neither food nor water, and does not defecate. Using the command word will return the rat to toy rat form.

This is one of the items from a soon to be released project I am working on for Occult Moon. The rocking art is by Teo Tayobobayo. Yes, I am playing catch up to the artist right now ;)


  1. And stuffed into the packs are the collected works of Frank Sinatra, Sammy Davis, Jr., and Dean Martin.

  2. I like this alot! This is going into my next game session!

  3. It can carry up to 150 pounds that might otherwise fit into three large backpacks.

    Note 150 pounds is exactly 2000cp

  4. Love it!

    Quick Q: If the rat is slain while its packs are full, what happens to the contents? Do they spill all over the floor or shrink with the rat.

    I ask because I know my players would try to use the rat as some kind of halfling-sized warhorse/pack mule and it would likely get shot with a lot of arrows in the process. ;)

  5. I would rule the contents spill out all over the floor. Keeping stuff in sacks and then loading the packs seems beneficial ;)

    I'll update the original file
