This new magic item for Dungeons & Dragons is a dwarven version of the Decanter of Endless Water. Fill your mug with ale by tapping it on the bar, or release a powerful geyser of beer.
Tankard of Endless Ale
Wondrous Item, uncommon
Weight: 2 lbs.
This clear crystal mug is inscribed with dwarvish runes and is nearly indestructible. As an action, you can tap the bottom of the tankard on a bar or any hard surface and the tankard magically fills with 1 pint of hearty dwarvish ale.
Beer Geyser. You can use an action to speak a command word and the tankard produces 30 gallons of ale that gushes forth in a geyser 30 feet long and 1 foot wide. As a bonus action while holding the tankard, you can aim the geyser at a creature you can see within 30 feet of you. The target must succeed on a DC 13 Strength saving throw or take 1d4 bludgeoning damage and fall prone. Instead of a creature, you can target an object that isn’t being worn or carried and that weighs no more than 200 pounds. The object is either knocked over or pushed up to 15 feet away from you. This feature can be used up to 3 times a day.
The first Tankard of Endless Ale was presented as a gift to Thane Slachenfeld Gumerbach after his victory against a tribe of rock trolls. The mighty dwarven warrior and leader, known as “Slosh” to his friends, was known to carry his tankard into battle, downing a pint for every defeated enemy.
Similar tankards are used during feasts and celebrations in dwarf communities throughout the western kingdoms. While the beer geyser provides plenty of entertainment, it can also be used as an offense on the battlefield.
