Heavy stuff...coins, iron spikes, anchors, spare armour, whatever has value but is too much of a pain to carry.

Oh, and corpses of slain party members, if they'll fit.

Generally the bag of holding holds the loot that is yet to be sorted or sold. Now the Handy Haversack carries the useful equipment that one might need and would typically be stowed in a backpack.

And the smaller things go in the Fairy's Fancy Fannypack.

Oh man! A bag of nondimensional space I don't have yet... :lol:


We had a pixie PC who wanted to buy a Haversack but it would interfere with his flight, so we took the concept and just scaled it down to ten percent (IIRC). It's worn like a belt and can hang in front (while flying) or in back (while fighting), depending on what the wearer needs.

I haven't had the chance to put a dead party member in my bag of holding yet, but last night I did put the corpse of the astrologer who was helping us look for clues in my bag so we could take her to the abbess for resurrection without causing a stir in the streets of Irilian.

I a high level 3.5 game the parties rogue regularly used her bag of holding to store her Air Genasi girlfriend who was only going to add a casualty to any of the groups fights being about 15 levels lover than the PCs. The genasi would dive in as the violence started. The first time the rogue picked her up and shoved her in.

What don't I keep in a bag of holding?

I can't help but recall the KoDT shenanigans when these topics come up:

...a group of hirelings that the Knights placed inside a magical bag of holding in order to transport them with them more easily. After Teflon Billy, who was in charge of the bag, forgot to feed the hirelings or let them out of the bag for several months, he was shocked to discover that - rather than dying - they had created a fortress and society within the bag, living off the other resources that the Knights had stored there. This led to a conflict and eventually to several full-scale "Bag Wars" in which the Knights attempted to reclaim their items.

My character's don't have a bag yet, but in a previous game our party did stow a dead PC in it, only to discover when we next opened it, that the PC had in fact been killed and turned into a vampire: so we had a vampire in a bag, which we let out one day to help clear a cavern; had to kill him eventually, but that was all part of the fun.

The PCs in my first Planescape campaign had the following:

1) For starters, I ran bags of holding such that items put into them were essentially in stasis, no need for air, etc

- a lead box that You Do Not Freaking Open (containing various and sundry things that they really should not have kept with them)
- a cuprilach rilmani
- a half dozen arcanaloths turned to stone
- a bottle of pickled bebelith eggs (swallow one, shift up or down one planar layer)
- several assorted humans that they forgot about for a while
- several bronze cannons and associated explosive alchemical powder
