Enchanted Messenger Cylinder

Magic Item

 

This is similar in design to Enchanted Bags (page 258, Palladium Fantasy main book). Once a message has been placed into the cylinder and the top sealed any person who looks into it will see an empty cylinder. Where it differs is that even if they know something is inside or they turn it upside down, there is still nothing. This is because the cylinder actually accesses a pocket dimension where the item remains. The lid actually serves as a method to open and close it. A word must be written in blood upon the cylinder lid. Once written the blood burns away and disappears (cannot be seen with See the Invisible because it's not invisible, it's gone). The word is the key to opening the cylinder and retrieving what is inside and must be spoken aloud before opening it. This prevents others from viewing secret and personal messages.

Often the one carrying the cylinder will not even be trusted with the word. This is useful if the sender and receiver know the correct word to prevent anyone, even the messenger, from finding out what is inside. Even if caught and interrogated, the messenger can't give up information he does not have. Another method is to send the word (if the recipient doesn't know it) and the cylinder separately, often one by messenger and the other by messenger pigeon. This leaves any would be spies the need to catch not only one target, but two.

Limitations: The dimensional pocket the Enchanted Messenger Cylinder is linked to can only be opened once per day. This means by opening it to place a message inside, it cannot be retrieved until the next day. Or if opened once to show it is there it cannot be opened again to see the message until another 24 hours have passed.

Cost: Small cylinder only large enough to fit a single sheet of tightly rolled up paper or parchment costs 50,000 gold. Larger cylinder/tube large enough to carry larger objects such as rolled up canvas work costs 150,000 gold. Costs are triple if the cylinder is made indestructible.
