Non-dimensional spaces
The Gambit has been upgraded to include a short hallway below deck with four (4) doors, two (2) on each side. Each door leads to a non-dimensional space that is larger on the inside.

Hallowed (
1. The site or structure is guarded by a magic circle against evil effect.
2. All Charisma checks made to turn undead gain a +4 sacred bonus, and Charisma checks to command undead take a -4 penalty. Spell resistance does not apply to this effect.
3. Any dead body interred in a hallowed site cannot be turned into an undead creature.
4. You may choose to fix a single spell effect to the hallowed site. The spell effect lasts for one year and functions throughout the entire site, regardless of the normal duration and area or effect. Effect applies to all creatures.
Protection From Energy [Acid]

Alarm spell – alerts Islay whenever an aberration boards the Gambit (when on the same plane of existence)


The pinnace is a small, two-masted sailing vessel. It’s sturdy
enough to undertake long open-water voyages and handy
enough to use close to shore. A pinnace is fully decked,
but its sterncastle is hardly worthy of the name; it’s little
more than a cramped cabin.
