Don't roll a nat 1 with a bastard DM!

(I'm a student engineer, but I'm a bit confused. Which is the 'business end' of this device?)

Now my question is: how do you make holes in a portable hole to put the stick through?

This could be it.

We mount that bad boy on a ballista bolt, and wheel it up to within firing range of Elminster's tower.

Yes, yes, this might actually do it!

The second generation version substitutes a dimensional mine for the portable hole and becomes cheaper.

I think the cost can be got down further [Dimensional pockets spell?]

I thought the same thing at first, but I think the holes are just in the tube that the portable hole is rolled up in and not in the hole itself.

Sadly I think that would just leave Elminster on the Astral Plane, which as a Wizard/Fighter/Cleric/Wizard/Rogue/Wizard/Spellfire User/Wizard/Sexhibitionist/Wizard 36/24/36, he'd probably have no problems dealing with :(

That's kind of what I was thinking. If you're going up against somebody powerful enough to justify burning a bag of holding and a portable hole, and you can't think of a better way to deal with them? Then you're probably going up against somebody for whom a trip to the Astral Plane is a mere annoyance (if a time consuming one) who will return sooner or later...

A related development project is working on creating a portable hole the size of a beer mug and a punch of holding that only fits half a kilo. While useless for conventional purposes these should be cheap enough to use as munitions.
