A magical artifact
that appears in at least one very popular fantasy RPG
. The folding boat is similar in concept to a portable hole
, a bag of holding
, and various weapons that fold up, collapse, or otherwise disappear into negative
space. The artifact manifests
as a full-sized boat of various appearances (raft, skiff, yacht...) which folds up into a small, flat paper item (or an origami
boat, or a parcel, etc.).
The important thing about this is it allows you to keep your large, unportable, unwieldy transportation with you at all times.
