  • Duration: Instantaneous

  • Name: Secret Chest
  • Range: Touch
  • School: Conjuration
  • Target: A chest and all its contents

You hide a chest, and all its contents, on the Ethereal Plane. You must touch the chest and the miniature replica that serves as a material component for the spell. The chest can contain up to 12 cubic feet of nonliving material (3 feet by 2 feet by 2 feet).

While the chest remains on the Ethereal Plane, you can use an action and touch the replica to recall the chest. It appears in an unoccupied space on the ground within 5 feet of you. You can send the chest back to the Ethereal Plane by using an action and touching both the chest and the replica.

After 60 days, there is a cumulative 5 percent chance per day that the spell's effect ends. This effect ends if you cast this spell again, if the smaller replica chest is destroyed, or if you choose to end the spell as an action. If the spell ends and the larger chest is on the Ethereal Plane, it is irretrievably lost.

The SendingStone review

Secret Chest is a spell in Dungeons and Dragons that allows wizards to temporarily store their valuables in an invulnerable magic chest. While it may have some practical uses for adventurers, many players argue that it is unnecessary and takes away from the thrill of the game. The spell requires expensive materials and takes up a valuable spell slot, and some argue that it takes away from the excitement of finding and carrying treasure. Additionally, the chest can only be summoned once per day, limiting its usefulness in extended campaigns. Overall, # Secret Chest is a divisive spell that some players love and others feel is unnecessary.

Secret Chest is D&D (Dungeons & Dragons) 5th edition content, but other TTRPGs may have their own version such as a Secret Chest Pathfinder edition. Want to use Secret Chest in a VTT (virtual tabletop)? Try out SendingStone for free today!
