Fireproof blanket ( ] )
Item Type Tool
Artifact? No
Weight 10s
Danger Level 1
Material Nonmetallic

A fireproof blanket in the PC's possession will completely protect all items in the backpack from fire damage, regardless of its B/U/C status. However, each time the PC's inventory is protected from fire damage, the blanket itself has a chance to be destroyed which is influenced by B/U/C status: a blessed blanket is more likely to survive than an uncursed one, while a cursed blanket is much more susceptible to destruction. This chance may be further modified by the PC's luck.

If the PC has multiple fireproof blankets in their inventory, only one blanket (with the most favorable B/U/C status) will be vulnerable to destruction each time the PC is exposed to fire damage. It is therefore advantageous to carry multiple fireproof blankets if possible, as each additional blanket will serve as a backup layer of protection.

Note that equipped items are not protected by fireproof blankets; a ring of ice is required for that.


They are useful to all players at all stages of the game, as fire damage from traps and monsters can otherwise inflict considerable destruction upon the PC's backpack. They are especially desirable in the Tower of Eternal Flames due to the PC being subjected to fire damage every turn.

Guaranteed/Common sources[]

One of the possible rewards for Thrundarr's fourth quest includes a fireproof blanket. The chaos diplomat gives one as a reward for killing the ice queen.

They can also be obtained in the same manner as all generic loot.
