Too predictable!

On any critical failure on a task (e.g., Armory, Forced Entry, Lockpicking, or Surgery roll) using the Universal Multitool™, assess the usual critical-failure result and roll 3d:
3 – Universal Multitool™ accidentally cuts a hole in reality. An Elder Thing of the GM's choosing steps through and attacks.
4, 5 – Universal Multitool™ extrudes an Eldritch Tentacle (see Against the Rat-Men, p. 19). Tool cannot be recovered until this is defeated, though it can be left there, if the owner doesn't mind parting with a $51,000 item. Tentacle's first attack on the wielder is always a surprise attack.
6, 7 – Universal Multitool™ warps reality subtly. Person carrying it suffers from Weirdness Magnet for 1d days. If not carried by anyone, the timer doesn't advance – 1d days of weirdness must afflict someone.
8 – Universal Multitool™ does something unspeakable. User must roll a Fright Check.
9, 10, 11 – Normal critical-failure result only.
12, 13 – Universal Multitool™ emits an otherworldly squeal. Roll at once for wandering monsters, at +3 if there's any chance of Elder Things appearing.
14 – Universal Multitool™ folds in upon itself and won't work for 1d days.
15 – Universal Multitool™ extrudes the wrong tool. Object being repaired, person being repaired if using Surgery, or the user's hand in other cases suffers 2d HP of injury or the usual damage from a critical failure, whichever is worse.
16 – As 15, but injury is 3d HP.
17 – Universal Multitool™ accidentally cuts a hole in reality, falls through, and is lost forever. (If the owner has Signature Gear, they may opt to jump through after it. Alone. Outside Time and Space, where the Elder Things are.)
18 – As 17, except the owner is dragged along with the tool. Roll vs. DX to let go in time. Failure means ending up Outside Time and Space.

The Gnomco Bag of Solving*
"This convenient bag can solve all a delvers problems"
To use this fantastic product simply place an existing magical item inside it and complain loudly about your problems. Then is a puff of presumably non-toxic smoke your item has now been transmogrified into an improved** version suitable for the problem at hand.

"Don't believe us? Just listen to these testimonials from our several satisfied customers"

"I am more than satisfied with my bag of solving, it enabled me to over come evil runes by turning my masterwork orichalium elven boots of speed into open toed goblin sandles of complete illiteracy"
Former mage, Gilgote Villerfield.

"I used my bag of solving to defeat, do I read that bit there?, the fell seductress of Praktis Keep, in less than thirty seconds I was able to turn my invulnerable dragon scale mail armour of wonder into a wingman's Hawaiian shirt that can and still does deflect the interest of women to the person next to me" "I get the remove curse scroll now don't I..."
Bravor Wilfsonson, Knight, last survivor of the raid on Praktis Keep

"But wait that's not all, buy now and you will also receive these fine selection of tools for delvers on the go!"
"This selection includes one oak 10 foot pole (1/10th scale), two bamboo square cross section wands of nothingness, a wax wand of light (Ignition required) and this glove of holding"

*produced under licence in conjunction with the cursed clerics of Murfeeslore.

**The definition of improved used here is consistent with the definition provided in the Webstairs dictunry of Nurth Thaler.

*** Gnomco does not accept liability for the loss of lung function caused by excessive use of this item.

**** Gnomco does not accept liability for the loss of other magical items consumed in the proper use of its product.
Waiting for inspiration to strike......
