This heavy oak and brass sphere is roughly the size of a cantaloupe. Finely machined seams run across the smooth surface, and a small brass plate set into the wood reads “Another fine Middlechurch M.E.S.S.” When the item’s magic is activated, the device splits apart along the previously flush seams, transforming into an assortment of useful tools, from a hammer or a chisel to a ladder to blacksmith’s anvil. A small bronze loop at the top of the egg-shaped device allows the M.E.S.S. to be clipped to a belt loop or backpack.
The M.E.S.S. is the brainchild of the Gnomish tinker Tobias Twodogs Middlechurch, and its sale has made his fortune. The little inventor has re-invested much of the profits of the device, paying steet urchins and tavern drunks to spread word of the device, and he won’t be satisfied until every adventurer and explorer in the realms carries a M.E.S.S.
As a full round action, the M.E.S.S.’ owner can transform the device into any piece of mundane gear described in the Pathfinder Roleplaying Game Core Rulebook worth 100 gp or less. The M.E.S.S. stays in that configuration until the owner changes it again.
