In the dark place, where the mycoids fester and lurking slithes cling to the stones, the stillness is shattered by the Duergar’s huzzahs.
The damp air crackles as the newborn artifact is drawn from the forge and quench-plunged in auroch’s milk. The smiths drink deep, savor the tang of mithril, and brush the clots from their beards.
A new model is Made.
The scroll case may find use whenever one needs to transport a short missive in a dignified, weather-resistant case.
Use a medium length of sturdy ribbon to fasten it snugly between a raven’s wings, with an X-harness across the bird’s keel.
Can also hold a small amount of iocaine powder.
The cap and tube should fit together snugly, but if you would like the cap to be silently removable I suggest wiping the interior plug with a little acetone. This will smooth out the ridges left by the printing process and reduce friction when inserting into the tube.
A 55mmx140mm sheet of paper will roll nicely and fit into the tube. A template .svg is included for your convenience. Ciphering and encryption of messages is left as an exercise for the reader.
I’ll post new models as often as I can. Unless otherwise specified, all models from the Forge are distributed under the Creative Commons Share-Alike license, so you’re free to share them, remix them, and use them for commercial purposes as long as you credit Zheng3.com (to the best of your ability.)
I’d like to set up a gallery of user-printed Forge models, so if you’re so inclined send me a photo of your latest print.
