Kender Pockets. You can reach into your pockets and produce one item from the Adventuring Gear table (PHB 150). The item must be something that could reasonably fit into a pocket and it must have a listed value of 2 gp or less and a weight of 2 pounds or less. Alternately, you can pull from your pocket a randomly-determined item from the Trinket table (PHB 160-161). You must finish a long rest before you can use kender pockets again.
This feature represents a kender’s “sticky fingers.” If it is overused or if it is abused to accrue wealth instead of providing occasional utility, story-based drawbacks may occur. When so many things go missing in such a short time, suspicions and sentiments will turn against the kender.
