face has a different effect. If the cube has insufficient
charges remaining, nothing happens. Otherwise, a
barrier of invisible force springs into existence, forming
a cube 15 feet on a side. The barrier is centered on you,
moves with you, and lasts for 1 minute, until you use an
action to press the cube's sixth face, or the cube runs
out of charges. You can change the barrier's effect by
pressing a different face of the cube and expending the
requisite number of charges, resetting the duration.
If your movement causes the barrier to come into
contact with a solid object that can't pass through the
cube, you can't move any closer to that object as long as
the barrier remains.

CHAPTER 7 I TREASURE
Wondrous item, legendary
This cube is 3 inches across and radiates palpable
magical energy. The six sides of the cube are each
keyed to a different plane of existence, one of which is
the Material Plane. The other sides are linked to plane:
determined by the DM.
You can use an action to press one side of the cube to
cast the gate spell with it, opening a portal to the plane
keyed to that side. Alternatively, if you use an action to
press one side twice, you can cast the plane shift spell
(save DC 17) with the cube and transport the targets to
the plane keyed to that side.
The cube has 3 charges. Each use of the cube expend:
1 charge. The cube regains ld3 expended charges
daily at dawn.
DAERN'S INSTANT FORTRESS
Wondrous item, rare
You can use an action to place this l-inch metal cube
on the ground and speak its command word. The cube
rapidly grows into a fortress that remains until you use
an action to speak the command word that dismisses ir.
which works only if the fortress is empty.
The fortress is a square tower, 20 feet on a side
and 30 feet high, with arrow slits on all sides and a
battlement atop it. Its interior is divided into two floors.
with a ladder running along one wall to connect them.
The ladder ends at a trapdoor leading to the roof. When
activated, the tower has a small door on the side facing
you. The door opens only at your command, which
you can speak as a bonus action. It is immune to the
knock spell and similar magic, such as that of a chime
Each creature in the area where the fortress appears
must make a DC 15 Dexterity saving throw, taking
lOdlO bludgeoning damage on a failed save, or half
as much damage on a successful one. In either case,
the creature is pushed to an unoccupied space outside
but next to the fortress. Objects in the area that aren't
being worn or carried take this damage and are pushed
