Variant Rule: How Convenient!

During play, if the DM does not explicitly describe something as not being there but that may be handy to the gameplay or convenient, and as long as the item is not magical, a player can request a Convenience Roll. The player rolls a d100. On a roll of 70 or higher, the item is present nearby.

You chase a bad guy into an alleyway and knock him unconscious. You want to stuff his body in a barrel but the DM didn’t specify if there was one. You roll a d100 with the DM’s permission. You rolled an 82. A barrel is nearby that the body may be stuffed inside.

I approve.
