Cork of Mischief

Wondrous Item, common

This unassuming cork looks and feels just like a regular cork. The Cork of Mischief allows you to disrupt the effectiveness of projectiles and firearms, creating opportunities for misdirection and chaos.

As an action, you can place the cork on an arrow or bolt. When the corked projectile is fired, it deals 1 bludgeoning damage instead of its regular damage.

Similarly, as an action, you can cork the barrel of a firearm. The next time the corked firearm is fired, the shot automatically misses its intended target. Roll a d6. On a result of 1 or 2, the firearm is damaged and will require repair before it can be used again.

The cork is surprisingly resilient, and neither of these uses damage it.

Uncorking an object requires an action. Once uncorked, the projectile or firearm returns to its regular functionality.

You can attempt a Dexterity (Sleight of Hand) check against the passive perception of others to cork an item without being noticed.

Creation Notes

Inspiration words: cork and cancel.

This might just be a normal cork. 🤷‍♂️
