[RPG] Can a Bag of Holding ever be habitable


The description of the bag of holding in the DMG (p. 154) states:

Breathing creatures inside the bag can survive up to a number of minutes equal to 10 divided by the number of creatures […]

Is there any RAW way to create sustainable conditions for breathing creatures inside a bag of holding (or other similar extradimensional spaces, for that matter)?

Best Answer


...IF you're asking if there's a RAW way for someone to survive inside a Bag of Holding for longer than 10 minutes. If you're asking if it's possible to make a livable environment inside the Bag, then the answer is 'Not by RAW'.

While there is no RAW 'Create Air' spell, there is a Necklace of Adaptation. Its description says

While wearing this necklace, you can breathe normally in any environment...

In practice, it'd really have to be up to your DM of course. The full text of the Necklace implies that it works to safeguard one against things added to an already breathable environment like poison gases, etc.

However, the text does say 'any environment', so a RAW interpretation would mean literally any environment.
