I'd like to know if there are any pre-existing rules or guides in regards to consequences for the contents of a mundane locked container per action taken to break it open via both magical and non magical means.
So in one of the campaigns I run, the players found a locked and iron reinforced wood chest. After checking it for magic and alot of poking with a "Stick of Mimic Agitation", they confirmed it was more or less mundane.
Not carrying thieves' tools, forgetting they had crowbars, nor the will to lug a heavy thing back to town and potentially attract raiders, they decided to break it open with force, both magical and non magical.
Amongst the contents of the container were a number of potions as well as a few magic scrolls.
Their Goliath barbarian failed an attempt to smash the box open, with the intent to destroy/damage the container enough to reach inside for the contents. The Warlock then decided to hit the box with Eldritch blasts which eventually opened it.
At this point I ruled that the contents of the box had been damaged/broken and I calculated a simple roll of 1dx, x being the number of liquid containers, followed by 1dy, y being the number of scrolls, which I then marked as being in an unusable/soiled state.
My questions are:
Should rolls be made on content breakage per attempt made on the box
Are potion bottle and scrolls generally strong enough to not consider rolling breakage for, considering that they are made to be carried by people who get shot at, exploded, and set on fire all the time?
