Frequency - very rare.

This is not an unheard of item as there were perhaps 20 of these made for wandering monks\priests at some time in the future.

Cooking Pot of the Emissary

This small pot is made of brass and about 1 foot in diameter. It is adorned with _insert Motif for your world_ and sits on 3 small legs. For an owner of the appropriate faith it has the following powers.

Altar - The small pot functions as a portable shrine. Water placed within it is purified and suitable for ceremony and ritual. The water is not 'holy water' suitable for combat etc... but it is made pure and rendered free of poisons.
The pot can be desecrated as a standard altar. This will cause it to shatter and be destroyed.

Food: If the pot is filled with water and prayed over the pot creates a nourishing soup appropriate to the season and area. The soup feeds 4 people. If these people speak the same prayer, the one meal will sustain them all day. The pot will transform water 3 times a day and can feed a maximum of 12 people.

Wealth If the pot is cleaned in the evening, according to ritual practice, and covered for the night it will hold 3 silver pieces in the morning and an aromatic herb. Three times a year, during feast days, these coins will be gold. The coins themselves are not magical and are appropriate to the region.

Does the Altar ability happen a limited number of times per day, or is it at will?

What is the intent with the herb that comes with the 3 SP? Market value? Air-freshener to carry with you when trying to convert the unwashed (and therefore smelly) masses? What?

Purify Food and Drink as an at-will (discount for smaller volume)

Create Food 1/day at whatever caster level is needed to feed 12

Conscrate IF it has the functions of that spell per se with adjustments for duration. Maybe a doubling of the cost for portability since you can walk into a dungeon with it and have a aura that messes with the undead you run into? Or nerf it to the aura only exists if when it is set up and a 2 minute prayer spoken over it?

The 3 SP and and an aromatic herb thing is a bit tougher... call it the cost of whatever amount of money would earn that much a day as interest in a loan? -/+5 or 10% for (in)convience of it?

Other than that... you know where to find the pricing guidelines or you need a link?
