Daily Punch 5-19-21 Lexicon of Learning Wondrous Item for DnD 5e

How about another item to help you learn really fast at a cost?

Lexicon of Learning

Wondrous item, rare

This small folio printed on silvery parchment with near indisipheral text. You must have training in survival, religion, history, arcana, medicine, or nature. If you spend an hour reading the text, a portion will start being something you can understand but that will fade and another section will be compressible. If you spend that time, you choose one of the listed skills you have, lose proficiency in that skill, and gain proficiency in a different skill from the list. This last until you spend another hour using this book again.

Daily Punch 4-20-21 Bomb of Tricks wondrous item for Dungeons and Dragons 5e

Here is what I REALLY wanted to make yesterday. We need the first thing to make the second.

Bomb of Tricks

consumable, uncommon

Several different versions of this bomb exist and all are color coded to the bag of tricks item they work as. When you throw this bomb, a random animal from the same colored bag of trix appears within 30 feet. You comand the animal as if it was summoned from a bag of tricks. The animal last as long as if it was summoned from a bag of tricks and the bomb is expended after it explodes and summons the creature.
