   I know this is old but I just had to add.
  My old group with there improved galleon finished a mission and they some
magic stuff. Well to there great disapointment what they had thought was a
bag of holding was a Bag of Devouring. Well after feeling mighty satisfied
at removing much wealth from them, I was wondering what they were going to
do with the bag. I though mabey destroy it or try and pawn it off, or just
keep it around for that occasional dead body. Well one of the players is
much into conservation/anti-polution so he took the bag and attached it to
the err... waist disposal (I.E. Toilet) plumbing.
  Now I say that is a way to use something magical for a high-tech purpose.
