Extrapolating Dragonmarked House Services

Post by enderxenocide0 » Mon Apr 16, 2018 2:04 pm

I had some random ideas for things that could happen or be produced in Eberron, but I haven't seen.

Portable vending machine designed for adventurers
Uses magic similar to the Kundarak extradimensional bank boxes and a Heward's Handy Haversack. The extradimensional space is kept fully stocked by the Houses. It contains healing potions, rations, and other common magical and mundane items that could be purchased. You "feed" the bag coinage into a side pocket that acts as a purse and balance. When you reach into the main pocket, you think of what you want to retrieve. If you have enough funds in the purse pocket, the money is automatically shifted to another extradimensional space accessible only by the Houses, and the item you seek finds its way to your hand. Otherwise, nothing happens.

Subscription rental services
A variation on Drawmij’s Instant Summons. Adventurers can pay a monthly, tiered service fee for access to items that might normally be too costly to purchase. They can rent these items from certified locations for a limited amount of time. Once the time is up or a subscription runs out, the location recalls the item using a more powerful version of Instant Summons (probably via a Dragonshard focus item tied to the Mark of Passage).

What are some other items/services you might see in Eberron, given enough time and effort?

Sharn will need either plentiful create water items (communal fountains, at least) or a variant of raise water to supply the masses. You think there is a lot of rain, but there isn't enough horizontal surface area on a tower to capture water for the very many levels beneath.

How about a Bed of Healing that increases the number of hit points someone regains if the rest in the bed, after being injured?
