Q: Dear Sage,
The DMG says that the quiver of Ehlonna can produce whatever the possessor wishes. Does this mean that it can create whatever magic item I want?
It means that you can draw forth any item the quiver of Ehlonna holds just like it was a normal quiver, without any of the fumbling around you’d expect for an item with such great capacity.
The word “produce” in this context doesn’t mean “manufacture,” it means “give forth,” like when the nice highway patrol officer asks you to “produce” some identification.
Not that the Sage has extensive experience with such situations, of course.
About the Author
The Sage is a mammal classified in the bear family, Ursidae, native to central and southern China. Debate continues as to whether he is truly a bear or more related to the raccoon rather than the bear, or perhaps in a family of his own. When not eating bamboo and answering rules questions, he works under the nom de plume of Andy Collins as an RPG developer in Wizards of the Coast R&D, where his development credits include Complete Mage, Dragon Magic, and the Player's Handbook v.3.5. He can be easily recognized by his large, distinctive black patches around the eyes, ears and on his rotund body.
