Really, what seems to be the secret of Pinkie's craziness is just how benign it is. Your stock paranoia-crazy might be stashing supply caches and weapons all over town. Pinkie's crazy? Implements of sports and gaming.

Don't forget the eyepatch stashes! But I guess that's in another ballpark entirely (pun all-too-forcibly intended).

It didn't strike me as forced. In fact, as embarrassing as this is, I almost didn't catch it at first.

According to one fanfiction I read, Pinkie Pie doesn't so much stash eyepatches and balls around in case of eyepatch and ball emergencies, she does it in case of SLINGSHOT emergencies.

So much for not storing weapons around town...

I would not take this seriously... Except I made an eyepatch for myself for one Talk-Like-A-Pirate-Day and still keep it just in case I need it...

In my defense, I have used it many times. Or does that make it worse?

I stash clean panties, salt, and marbles everywhere.

Story time is about being crazy prepared and stockpiling! What have you stockpiled?

My players (D&D 4E) have taken to some odd stashing habits of their own.

Namely, scrolls of Corpse Gate and many bits of the same dead thing (teeth are the current implement of choice, I believe).

Essentially, Corpse Gate is a level 14 ritual which creates a linked portal from one part of the same corpse to another part, provided the caster and the target are on the same plane.

This means that the PCs have a habit of carrying a large number of teeth with them, and dropping one or two off in any place they think they might need to return to via "the back way". Similarly, it means that if the party is split, they can very easily "retrieve" errant members.

This of course has all sorts of implications for infiltration tactics and other crafty uses. Of course, I've had to adapt my strategies accordingly... but that's getting a bit further off-topic.

Suffice to say that in innocuous jars, behind unassuming tapestries, and other seldom-checked locales throughout the land, a cunning eye might detect magically concealed packages containing a ritual scroll, a tooth or two, and 1,600g of residium (the ritual only uses 800g worth, but it's good to be prepared).

*Disclaimer: Characters must be level 14 or over, and must be prepared to expend significant portions of income on said preparedness. Hilarity may ensue when destination teeth have been swept into the trash heap. High potential for baddies to use your plans against you.

In my group's session just last night I had my spare spellbook stashed in one of those sickeningly useful Complete Scoundrel secret compartments in my robes.

The sad thing about prison cells? Can't really hold anyone magical, or rogues, past about level seven. Two locate objects to find my companions and all my daily teleports later and an entire dungeon was skipped.

Whether or not I also had two pounds of gum in that com
