Span's EverReady Outhouse
Gotta go, gotta go, gotta go right now...
This item looks like a bronze key attached by a short leather strap to a flat metal bar about a foot long, making the object bulky, but difficult to misplace. The key can be used to magically create a doorway to a small pocket dimension which consists of a bathroom, appropriately sized for the creature holding the key. To activate the item, the keyholder must approach a vertical surface large enough to feasibly admit them (such as a rock, a wall, or even a tree trunk of sufficient diameter), knock three times against the surface and utter the command phrase "Is anyone in there?" and then pushing the key into the flat surface. A glowing door appears (light equivalent to a torch), with a doorknob and a crescent moon inscribed on the upper half of the door. The door glows with a faint blue light, but as soon as the keyholder enters, the door glows red, indicating that the room is occupied. The door locks from the inside automatically, but can be opened from the outside with a DC 22 Open Lock check if you're some kinda perv who wants to spy on someone using the restroom.
Inside, the small room contains a toilet, bidet, sink with mirror, soap and towel, all of which function normally, and appear clean and ready to use when the door is created. The room is brightly lit by an overhead lamp, is kept at a comfortable 68 degrees Fahrenheit, and contains a small stand of potpourri and flowers to help manage odors. There is no time limit for an occupant, and the door vanishes as soon as the occupant leaves. Should the keyholder forget to take the key with them when they leave, the door still vanishes and the key is lost forever. Should the surface on which the door exists be damaged or destroyed, the occupant and the key appear in the closest available square, possibly creating a very socially awkward situation. Though the restroom is technically a pocket dimension, occupants are not considered having left the plane they were on when they enter the EverReady Outhouse. This means, for example, that spells limited to one plane still function normally on an occupant.
