I think thatís the right name.
I donít have the book yet and I had some questions about the item.

Does it have a set shape or Are they all the same?
Can I have one made out of a mini fridge to keep my potions cold?
Perhaps one made out of a steamer trunk for clothing based preparations?
Are these things possible?

I plan to have a couple of them.

I paint the pavement.  It's what I do.  Check it out on Instagram, @Chalkarts

There's no info about the shape or size, so I assume there's some variation possible. But not sure how big it'd be.
How am I not part of the forum?? O_O I am both active and angry!

I think a consense could be found in them being to big to lug around casually (unless you are a troll - and then you still wouldn't pull of casually in any case)

It is described as being the size of a mini-fridge; call it a 2' cube.

I didn't see that in its Forbidden Arcana listing. Where is that description?

The Vault of Ages is clarified in the Shadowrun Missions FAQ in a way that should be useful for all tables:

How big is a Vault of Ages?

A Vault of Ages is a large and bulky object somewhat larger than the average office safe. Moving it is a two-person lift (even for Trolls, itís bulky). For the purposes of Missions you can fit a single Vault of Ages in the trunk of a vehicle, a standard smuggling compartment, or it can occupy one seat. Nothing else can be stored in the space the Vault of Ages occupies. Storing items that the Vault of Ages is not intended for within the container degrades its power, thus it can only be used to hold alchemical preparations.
