Guuntlets of Titanic Strength
These large gauntlets cause 2d6 damage when used for unarmed attacks.

Feathered Cloak
This cloak is completely covered by raven feathers that slow every fall, so that the wearer does not sustain any damage from the fall.

Warmage Armor
This plate armor from the time of the Imperium uses special enchantments to allow casters to wear it without penalty. Its statistics are equal to normal plate armor, but its AP is 0.

This rune covered sword ignores any armor. Attack rolls with this weapon are made against basic Defense.

Discovered Lore

Breath Pearl
A beautiful ocean pearl that, when swallowed, allows the user to breathe underwater (as the Breathe Water talent) for three days. Once the pearl is swallowed, it is destroyed.

Catfoot Amulet
A silver or gold chain anklet with small charm in the shape of a cat. When worn, it grants the wearer a +2 bonus on all Rogue rolls to move without being heard.

Mask of Thorns
This plain white porcelain mask is lined on the inside with small, sharp thorns. When worn, the thorns dig into the flesh of the wearer. While the mask is being worn, the wearer can appear to others as a nondescript human of the same sex and build, hiding any obvious distinguishing features. This means that while the mask is worn, if the user has the Outcast negative talent, the mask suppresses the penalty. However, while the mask is worn, the user suffers 1d6-2 damage per hour that cannot be healed until the mask is taken off. The mask cannot be used by anyone abnormally large or small (such as a mountain giant, or a halfling or simian) unless it was specially crafted for a user of that size, and even then it will not hide the user’s abnormal size.

Stoneskin Rune
A polished semi-precious stone marked with a rune of endurance. When invoked, it grants the user the Tough as Nails talent (damage taken from each individual attack is reduced by 2) for one hour. Once invoked, the rune shatters and cannot be used again. If invoked by a character with the Tough as Nails talent, it has no effect, but still shatters.

A two- to three-foot long stick an inch thick, peeled of bark and rubbed smooth. When activated, this stick stores perfect recall of one story or set of information of similar length. Symbols and pictures appear on the stick related to the information it is storing. Once the information is retrieved, the symbols disappear and the stick is “empty”, ready to be used again. Only one story or set of information can be stored at any given time.

Wolf Belt
A belt constructed from the hides of slain werewolves, decorated with bone fetishes. When put on, it transforms the user into a wolf as per the Wolfchange talent; the belt shifts with the user. The user can change back at will, in which case the belt falls off, ready to be put on again. Werewolves will attempt to kill anyone using a wolf belt, stopping at nothing.

From the Imperial Forges

This simple whitewood stave can extend or retract on command, shrinking so as to fit within the palm or growing up to 10 yards in length or any length in between. This makes it extremely versatile; it can be easily concealed, used as a baton or staff in combat, used as a walking stick, used for poling rafts and boats over shallow water, or for bridging gaps shorter than its full extended length. The Changestave has the same traits as the staff when used in combat.

Holy Sword
This gold-hilted, silvery blade is bane against the undead, inflicting 2d6 damage to skeletons, zombies, vampires, and their ilk.

Enchanted Armor
The most common of enchanted armors, these suits and shields are unusually durable and permit the flow of arcane energies more effectively. Enchanted armors and shields gain a +1 Defense bonus and reduce their Armor Penalties by 1. Roll 1d6 to determine the type, then another 1d6 to determine the actual armor/shield:

roll 1: Type
1-4: Armor, 5-6: Shield

roll 2: Actual armor/shield

Enchanted Weapon
The most common of enchanted weapons, these blades, bows, and bludgeons are beautifully crafted, balanced, and powerful, providing a +1 bonus to attack and damage rolls. Roll 1d6 to determine the type, then another 1d6 to determine the actual weapon:
roll 1: Type
1-3: Blade, 4: Bludgeon, 5: Bow, 6: Other
roll 2: Actual Weapon
• Blade - 1-4: Sword, 5: Dagger, 6: Two-Handed Sword
• Bludgeon - 1-3: Warhammer, 4-5: Mace, 6: Two-handed Mace/Warhammer
• Bow - 1-4: Bow, 5-6: Longbow
• Other - 1-2: Axe, 3-5: Spear, 6: Two- Handed Axe

The blade of this blackened sword bursts into flame on command. It causes 1d6+1 damage when wreathed in fire and may set flammable enemies alight. It also provides light like a torch when ablaze.

Lightning Spear
When thrown, this etched, silver-bladed spear transforms into a bolt of lightning, streaking towards its target. Its thrown range is 40 yards and it inflicts 1d6+2 damage if it hits. It instantly returns to its wielder’s hand whether it hits or not.

This cruel dagger can be commanded to drip venom. The lethal poison does its normal damage and effects in addition to the damage caused by the dagger itself. The poison can only be invoked and used once per day.

Antidote Potion
This vial contains a yellow bubbling liquid that immediately eliminates any poisons and diseases in the drinker when quaffed.

This fine bearskin cloak uses the bear's head as a hood and its clawed paws as a clasp. Once per day, the wearer can invoke its power, turning into a bear for one hour. The character cannot talk, cast spells, or use tools or magical items while transformed, and calculates their abilities using the following template:
Attributes: Highest of character or bear in each case.
HP: Highest of character or bear. If the character loses more HP in bear form than they naturally have, they will die when they turn back unless healed first.
Mana: As character.
Defense: Recalculate using appropriate Attributes, but without armor or magical items, +2 for thick fur.
Attacks: As bear.

1: A bunch of 2d6 fresh, fragrant roses.
2: A collection of 2d6 colorful scarves.
3: A collection of 2d6 colorful ribbons.
4: A handful of confetti and glitter.
5: A white dove, alive and well.
6: A white rabbit, alive and well.

This carved animal horn provides food when commanded once per day. Enough assorted fresh fruit such as apples and grapes spills forth to serve as 2d6+4 meals, but spoils if not consumed within a day.

Love Potion
This vial contains a bubbling purple fluid that causes anyone imbibing it to fall madly in love with the next species-compatible individual they see, including their own reflection. The effects can be resisted with a Mage check vs. DL7, but if they are not resisted they last for 1d6 hours. Someone under the influence of a love potion absolutely trusts the individual they have fallen in love with, cannot bear to be parted from them, spends all of their time trying to win their affection, will do nearly anything to please them, and absolutely will not attack them. However, if someone enchanted by a love potion is asked by their love to do something strongly counter to their normal nature, they can make another roll to throw off the potion’s influence.

Luck Potion
This vial contains a bubbling green fluid that grants 1 fate point when quaffed. If not used, the fate point disappears after a day.

Magic Beans
This leather pouch contains 2d6 purple beans. When a bean is thrown on earthy ground it grows into a thick, tangled, easily-climbed beanstalk, as tall as is necessary for the user to reach the location they wish to climb to. For example, if the user wishes to reach the top of a tall castle’s tower, when he throws down the bean, the stalk will grow up the tower to the top. A bean can only be used once.

Mermaid's Ring
This strange ring appears to be made of soft, artfully woven silk-like strands of golden hair. When donned, it enables the wearer to breathe water as easily as air, though stagnant or polluted water can still prove dangerous or unbreathable. Unfortunately, while the ring is donned, the wearer cannot breathe air.

Rat King's Flute
This carved wooden flute summons a pair of giant rats to protect the musician when played and invoked. The rats protect the flutist for as long as he or she continues to play the flute, and disappearwhen the music stops or they are destroyed. The flute can be used in this way once per day.

Serpent Staff
When thrown upon the ground, this carved wooden staff turns into a venomous snake under the command of the user. The snake serves for 1d6 hours before turning back into a staff, but turns back instantly if slain. It can only be

Stone Horse
This beautiful white marble statuette of a horse is small enough to be carried in a belt pouch. When invoked, it transforms into a magnificent white warhorse.

Winged Boots
These elegantly stitched leather boots sprout fluttering wings at the ankles on command, bearing the wearer aloft. The wearer can fly for an hour as swiftly as a bird of prey. When in flight, the wearer enjoys a +3 Defense bonus. The boots can only be invoked once per day.

This broad leather belt is inset with etched decorative metal plates and grants the wearer a +1 bonus to their Warrior attribute.

Changeling Vizard
This featureless white mask can change it appearance to perfectly mimic the face of any individual the wearer has seen and studied for at least a minute. It provides no other qualities of the individual whose face it mimics, however.

Crystal Ball
This polished crystal orb is a tool of divination; when infused with 1 Mana it provides hazy glimpses of the future pertaining to the user or another individual as selected by the user. These glimpses should be cryptic but potentially useful and are provided by the GM.

Dancing Blade
This amazing sword fights on its own when instructed by its owner, floating and slashing through the air as if wielded by an invisible swordsman. It can only be activated once per day and remains active for 10 combat rounds or until beaten before returning to its scabbard.

Attributes: Warrior 5

This impressive sword is bronzed with heat and etched with runes. It does 2d6 damage to drakes, dragons, and other related species.

Everful Quiver
This beautifully stitched leather quiver only contains a single arrow and resists all efforts to place more within it. However, when the arrow is drawn, another magically appears making the supply of arrows limitless. The arrows are completely mundane, and disappear after 2 combat rounds once drawn so they cannot be stocked up.

Flaming Arrows
2d6 of these ebony-shafted bronze-tipped arrows are found, suitable for a bow or longbow. They burst into flame when loosed, adding +1 to the normal damage of the bow. They may set flammable enemies alight.
