An eversmoking bottle was an item that constantly leaked smoke out, provided the stopper was open.[1]


Typical eversmoking bottles were stoppered bottles made of brass.[1]


Unstoppering the bottle caused a cloud of thick smoke to fill a radius of 60 feet (18 meters) within a few seconds, blocking vision entirely. The cloud expanded as long as the bottle remained open, out to a maximum radius of 120 feet (37 meters) over several minutes. Closing the bottle required the user to speak its command word, after which the smoke dissipated over a few minutes. Strong winds could also dissipate the smoke.[1]


In the Year of Twelve Warnings, 1494 DR,[note 1] the nalfeshnee Trantolox kept an eversmoking bottle when attempting to break into the Bleeding Citadel in Avernus.[2]



  1. Canon material provides two distinct dates for the events described in Baldur's Gate: Descent into Avernus: the adventure itself, described in chapters 1 through 5, takes place in 1494 DR, according to events mentioned in pages 7 and 47, while the Baldur's Gate Gazetteer describes the city as of 1492 DR (p. 159).
