A blanket was soft rug used to cover one's body in order to keep warm and comfortable.[8][9]

Description[]

Blankets were made of comfortable material, such as wool.[10][11] Some used their cloaks as blankets when journeying through cold locations or during winter,[12] or to protect themselves from scorching sand.[13] Furthermore, they could also be used to cool others down or drive off swarms of flying vermin.[14]

Blankets were used all over Faerûn,[10] Kara-Tur,[15], Zakhara[16] and Maztica.[17] Specific types of blankets were sometimes placed between the saddle or the barding and a mount, in order to make the ride more comfortable, and to protect the mount.[18][19][20]

Powers[]

Magical blankets were known to exist throughout the multiverse.[8][21]

History[]

When Zhengyi the Witch-King plagued Vaasa, part of his citadel was occupied by a banshee. She covered herself in a blanket, and sobbed, drawing adventurers towards her as if she was an upset girl. The banshee aimed to spring unwary adventurers and attack them, should they approach her.[10]

Throughout the Grand Bazaar of Huzuz, one could set up a vending stall by simply placing a blanket on the ground.[16]
