Target One chest and up to 1 cu. ft. of goods/caster level
Duration Sixty days or until discharged
Saving Throw None

You hide a
chest on the Ethereal
for as long as sixty days and can retrieve it at
will. The chest can contain up to 1 cubic foot of material per caster level
(regardless of the chest’s actual size, which is about 3 feet by 2 feet by 2
feet). If any living creatures are in the chest, there is a 75% chance that
the spell simply fails. Once the chest is hidden, you can retrieve it by concentrating
(a standard action), and it appears next to you.

The chest
must be exceptionally well crafted and expensive, constructed for you by master
crafters. The cost of such a chest is never less than 5,000 gp. Once it is constructed,
you must make a tiny replica (of the same materials and perfect in every detail),
so that the miniature of the chest appears to be a perfect copy. (The replica
costs 50 gp.) You can have but one pair of these chests at any given time-even
a wish spell does not allow more. The chests are nonmagical and can be fitted
with locks, wards, and so on, just as any normal chest can be.

To hide the
chest, you cast the spell while touching both the chest and the replica. The
chest vanishes into the Ethereal
. You need the replica to recall the chest.
After sixty days, there is a cumulative chance of 5% per day that the chest
is irretrievably lost. If the miniature of the chest is lost or destroyed, there
is no way, not even with a wish spell, that the large chest can be summoned
back, although an extraplanar expedition might be mounted to find it.

Living things
in the chest eat, sleep, and age normally, and they die if they run out of food,
air, water, or whatever they need to survive.

Focus The chest and its replica.
