  1. Magical Potion of Rejuvination

    This Isn't like any other potion. It is minor. It preforms a small regeneration spell that restores 10 hitpoints over the course of the day and the drinker recieves the effects of a bless spell and a chant spell for the remainder of the day. The potion never runs dry. You can drink from it once a week, otherwise there are no benifets.

  2. Blade of Missles

    This Is a +1 wicked looking exotic blade. It has 4 inch spikes that point towards the hilt. If the weilder hits by 3 or more, he receives +1 damage. The blade can, once a day, shoot twin magic missles. The weilder can swing the same round he declares the missles to be shot. If he hits that same round, the missles automatically hit for full damage. Otherwise, the missles go off as a normal magic missle.

    [Back to the top]
     

  3. Gems of the Magi

    These are a rather open ended magic item. Basically, they are any kind of stone or mineral that is enchanted with a certain spell. Minor spells can bring great power to a fighter. They can have any kind of spell like levitation, invisibility, Any form of prot. spell, a cantrip, feather fall, ect. You can wear these gems, but they will only operate as long as they are held in the hand. They can be used by charges (1-10), or by once-per-day, or by one-time-use. The "gems" can look very exotic, to exetremely mundane. For instance, a protection spell could be stored in a diamond. Or the levitation could be stored in an ordanary granite rock.

TSR's Descriptions

  1. Arrow of Direction:

    This typically appears to be a normal arrow. However, its magical properties make it function like a locate object spell, empowering the arrow to show the direction to the nearest stairway, passage, cave, etc. Once per day the device can be tossed into the air; it will fall and point in the requested direction. This process can be repeated seven times during the next seven turns. The request must be for one of the following: Stairway (up or down) Sloping passage (up or down) Dungeon exit or entrance Cave or cavern Requests must be phrased by distance (nearest, farthest, highest, lowest) or by direction (north, south, east, west, etc.).

    [Back to the top]
     

  2. Arrow of Slaying:

    This is an arrow +3 with unusual physical characteristics-a shaft of some special material, feathers of some rare creature, a head of some strange design, a rune carved on the nock, etc. These characteristics indicate the arrow is effective against some creature type. If the arrow is employed against the kind of creature it has been enchanted to slay, the missile will kill it instantly if it hits the target creature. The following list comprises only a portion of the possible kinds of these arrows: 1. Arachnids 11. Illusionists 2. Avians 12. Mages 3. Bards 13. Mammals 4. Clerics 14. Paladins 5. Dragons 15. Rangers 6. Druids 16. Reptile 7. Elementals 17. Sea monsters 8. Fighters 18. Thieves 9. Giants 19. Titans 10. Golems 20. Undead Develop your own types and modify or limit the foregoing as fits your campaign.

  3. Axe +2, throwing:

    This hand axe can be thrown up to 180 feet with the same attack roll and damage bonuses (+2) as if it were swung by the character.

    [Back to the top]
     

  4. Axe of Hurling:

    This appears to be a normal hand axe. With familiarity and practice, however, the possessor will eventually discover that the axe can be hurled up to 180 feet, and it will return to the thrower in the same round whether or not it scores a hit. Damage inflicted by the magical throwing attack is twice normal (2d6 vs. S or M, 2d4 vs. L), with the weapon's magical bonus added thereafter. (For example, an axe of hurling +3 will inflict 2d6+3 points of damage vs. S- or M-sized creatures and 2d4+3 points of damage vs. creatures of size L if it hits the target after being thrown.) The axe will cause only normal damage (plus its magical bonus) when used as a hand-held weapon. After each week of using the weapon, the possessor has a one-in-eight chance of discovering the full properties of the weapon. In any event, the magical properties of the weapon will be fully known to the possessor after eight full weeks of such familiarization. The magical bonus of an axe of hurling is determined by referring to the table below: Magical D20 Roll Bonus XP Value 1-5 +1 1,500 6-10 +2 3,000 11-15 +3 4,500 16-19 +4 6,000 20 +5 7,500

    [Back to the top]
     

  5. Bow +1:

    This gives a +1 bonus to attack and damage rolls to arrows fired from it. If magical arrows are used, total the bonuses of both the bow and the arrows used. The type of bow found (composite, short, long, etc.) should be based on the circumstances of your campaign and the nature of the area. A nonmagical arrow fired from a magical bow is a nonmagical missile.

    [Back to the top]
     

  6. Crossbow of Accuracy, +3:

    This gives a +3 bonus to attack rolls with its missiles but not to damage. All ranges are considered short. About 10% of these weapons will be heavy crossbows.

    [Back to the top]
     

  7. Crossbow of Distance:

    This has double range in all categories. About 10% of these weapons will be heavy crossbows. This weapon is otherwise +1 bonus to attack and damage rolls.

    [Back to the top]
     

  8. Crossbow of Speed:

    This item allows its possessor to double the rate of fire normal for the weapon. If it is grasped, the crossbow of speed will automatically cock itself. In surprise situations it is of no help. Otherwise, it allows first fire in any melee round, and end-of-round fire also, when applicable. About 10% of these weapons are heavy crossbows. The weapon has a +1 bonus to attack and damage rolls.

    [Back to the top]
     

  9. Dagger +2, Longtooth:

    This appears to be a normal weapon, or perhaps a nonspecial magical weapon. However, when this broad-bladed weapon is wielded by a small demihuman (like a gnome or halfling), it will actually lengthen and function as a short sword (retaining its +2 bonus in this form). Even when functioning in this way it remains as light and handy to use as a dagger would be in the hands of the same character. The weapon will actually penetrate wood or stone as easily as it will softer material, inflicting maximum damage against either substance.

    [Back to the top]
     

  10. Dagger of Throwing:

    This appears to be a normal weapon but will radiate strongly of magic when this is checked for. The balance of this sturdy blade is perfect, such that when it is thrown by anyone, the dagger will demonstrate superb characteristics as a ranged weapon. The magic of the dagger enables it to be hurled up to 180 feet. A successful hit when it is thrown will inflict twice normal dagger damage, plus the bonus provided by the blade, which will range from +1 to +4. To determine the bonus for a specific dagger, roll percentile dice and consult the following table: Magical D100 Roll Bonus XP Value 01-35 +1 250 36-65 +2 350 66-90 +3 450 91-00 +4 550

    [Back to the top]
     

  11. Dagger of Venom:

    This appears to be a standard dagger +1, but its hilt holds a hidden store of poison. Any hit on a roll of 20 injects fatal poison into the opponent unless a saving throw vs. poison is successful. The dagger of venom holds up to six doses of poison. If the hilt contains fewer than six doses, the owner can pour more in up to the maximum. (Use of this weapon by good-particularly lawful good-characters must be carefully monitored for effects on alignment.)

    [Back to the top]
     

  12. Darts of Homing:

    These appear to be normal projectiles, but are actually +3 magical weapons. If a dart hits the intended target, it will magically return to the thrower in the same round and can be re-used. A dart inflicts a base 1d6 points of damage plus its magical bonus on a successful hit against any size creature (4-9 points total). A dart that misses its target loses its magical power. These weapons have twice the range of ordinary darts-20 yards short, 40 yards medium, 80 yards long.

    [Back to the top]
     

  13. Hammer +3, Dwarven Thrower:

    This appears to be a standard hammer +2. In the hands of a dwarven fighter who knows the appropriate command word, its full potential is realized. In addition to the +3 bonus, the hammer has the following characteristics: The hammer has a 180-foot range and will return to its wielder's hand like a boomerang. It has a +3 bonus to attack and damage rolls. When hurled, the hammer inflicts double damage against all opponents except giants (including ogres, ogre magi, trolls, and ettins). Against giants it causes triple damage (plus the bonus of +3).

    [Back to the top]
     

  14. Hammer of Thunderbolts:

    This appears to be a large, extra-heavy hammer. A character less than 6 feet tall and with Strength less than 18/01 will find it too unbalanced to wield properly in combat. However, a character of sufficient Strength and size will find that the hammer functions with a +3 bonus and gains double damage dice on any hit. If the wielder wears a girdle of giant strength and gauntlets of ogre power and he knows the hammer's true name, the weapon can be used to full effect: When swung or hurled it gains a +5 bonus, double damage dice, all girdle and gauntlet bonuses, and it strikes dead any giant upon which it scores a hit. (Depending on the campaign, the DM might wish to limit the effect to exclude storm giants and include ogres, ogre magi, trolls, ettins, and clay, flesh, and stone golems.) When hurled and successfully hitting, a great noise, like a clap of thunder, stuns all creatures within 90 feet for one round. Throwing range is 180 feet. (Thor would throw the hammer about double the above range.) The hammer of thunderbolts is difficult to hurl, so only one throw every other round can be made. After five throws within the space of any two-turn period, the wielder must rest for one turn. Hammers can be hurled as hand axes.

    [Back to the top]
     

  15. Hornblade:

    This is a magical weapon with a sickle-like blade resembling some sort of animal horn. Hornblades range in size from that of a knife to somewhat less than the length of a short sword. Even a close inspection is 90% unlikely to reveal it as anything other than a piece of horn of a -foot to 1-foot in length, set in some sort of handle or grip. If magic is detected for, a hornblade will radiate faintly of enchantment magic. However, if the proper pressure is applied in the correct place, a curved blade of great strength and sharpness will spring out. The small versions (knife-sized and dagger-sized) are usually enchanted to +1 or +2, and the largest version (scimitar-sized) commonly has a bonus of +2 or +3. Smaller hornblades can be thrown, and the bonus applies to both the attack number and damage determination. Any character class permitted to use sickle-like weapons can use a hornblade. The possessor can use it with proficiency, providing he has proficiency with the appropriately sized weapon (knife, dagger, or scimitar). The experience-point value of a hornblade depends upon its size and the amount of its magical bonus: Size XP Value Knife-sized 500 per "plus" Dagger-sized 750 per "plus" Scimitar-sized 1,000 per "plus"

    [Back to the top]
     

  16. Javelin of Lightning:

    A javelin of lightning is considered equal to a +2 magical weapon, although it has neither attack nor damage bonuses. It has a range of 90 yards and whenever it strikes, the javelin becomes the head of a 5-foot wide, 30-foot long stroke of lightning. Any creature hit by the javelin suffers 1d6 points of damage, plus 20 points of electrical damage. Any other creatures in the path of the stroke take either 10 or 20 points of damage, based on whether their saving throws are successful or not. From 2-5 javelins will be found. The javelin is consumed in the lightning discharge.

    [Back to the top]
     

  17. Javelin of Piercing:

    This weapon is not actually hurled-when a command word is spoken, the javelin of piercing launches itself. Range is 180 feet, all distances considered as short range. The javelin has a +6 bonus to attack rolls and inflicts 1d6+6 points of damage. (Note this missile will fly horizontally, vertically, or any combination thereof to the full extent of its range.) From 2-8 (2d4) will be found at one time. The magic of the javelin of piercing is good for only one throw after which it becomes a normal javelin.

    [Back to the top]
     

  18. Knife, Buckle:

    This magical blade has a hilt that looks just like a large belt-buckle ornament or a complete small buckle. The hilt can be grasped easily and the weapon drawn from its belt-sheath. The knife blade is short but has a very sharp point-it inflicts damage as a knife. D10 Roll Type XP Value 1-4 +1 100 5-7 +2 200 8-9 +3 300 10 +4 400

    [Back to the top]
     

  19. Mace of Disruption:

    This appears to be a mace +1, but it has a neutral good alignment, and any evil character touching it will receive 5d4 points of damage due to the powerful enchantments laid upon the weapon. If a mace of disruption strikes any undead creature or evil creature from one of the lower planes, may utterly destroy the creature. Skeletons, zombies, ghouls, shadows, wights, and ghasts, if hit, are instantly blasted out of existence. Other creatures roll saving throws as follows: Creature Save Wraiths 5% Mummies 20% Spectres 35% Vampires 50% Ghosts 65% Liches 80% Other affected evil creatures 95% Even if these saving throws are effective, the mace of disruption scores double damage upon opponents of this sort, and twice the damage bonus.

    [Back to the top]
     

  20. Net of Entrapment:

    This magical rope net is strong enough to defy Strength under 20 and is equal to AC -10 with respect to blows aimed at cutting it. (Normal sawing attempts to cut it with dagger or sword will not succeed; to sever a strand of the mesh, a character must hack at it until he does 5 points of damage on a strand.) Each net is 10 feet square and has a 3-inch-square mesh. It can be thrown 20 feet so as to cover and close upon opponents; each creature in range must roll a successful saving throw vs. dragon breath to avoid being entrapped. It can be suspended from a ceiling (or generally overhead) and drop upon a command word. It can be laid upon the floor and close upward upon command. The net stretches so as to close over an area up to five cubic feet. It can be loosened by its possessor on command.

    [Back to the top]
     

  21. Net of Snaring:

    This net looks just like a net of entrapment, but it functions only underwater. There, it can be commanded to shoot forth up to 30 feet to trap a creature. It is otherwise the same as the net of entrapment.

    [Back to the top]
     

  22. Quarterstaff, Magical:

    This appears to be a normal bronzewood staff banded with iron. The shaft is actually as strong as steel, and has two magical qualities. Upon command, the staff will alter its length from as short as 6 feet to as long as 12 feet (or any length in between). It inflicts damage as a quarterstaff (base amount, 1d6 points), with additions to attack and damage rolls based upon its magical bonus. D20 Roll Type XP Value 1-5 +1 250 6-9 +2 500 10-13 +3 750 14-17 +4 1,000 18-20 +5 1,250

    [Back to the top]
     

  23. Scimitar of Speed:

    This is a magical weapon, usually of +2 bonus, that automatically grants its wielder the first attack in a melee round, even though some magical effect might have otherwise slowed his speed and reaction time. It also allows more than one strike in some rounds, increasing the wielder's figure for attacks per melee round by one place, so that if one attack is normal, then the improvement is to two attacks per round. This increase in attacks is cumulative with any other bonus attacks (such as those provided by a haste spell). The order of attacks in the round is determined normally after the wielder of the scimitar of speed has made his first attack to begin activity in the round. It is possible, for instance, that a wielder entitled to three attacks in the round will attack once before any other action takes place, and then (because of poor initiative rolls or other factors) take his remaining two attacks at the very end of the round. There is a chance (25%) that the weapon will have a bonus of something other than +2; if this occurs, roll percentile dice and refer to the following table to determine the appropriate bonus: D100 Roll Type XP Value 01-50 +1 2,500 (normal form) +2 3,000 51-75 +3 3,500 76-90 +4 4,000 91-00 +5 4,500

    [Back to the top]
     

  24. Sling of Seeking +2:

    This gives its user a +2 bonus for both attack and damage rolls, but missiles from such a weapon are regarded as +1 with respect to whether or not certain creatures are affected by the weapon (i.e., a special defense of "+1 or better weapon to hit" means the creature is vulnerable to normal missiles from this sling).

    [Back to the top]
     

  25. Spear, Cursed Backbiter:

    This is to all tests a magical spear with a +1 bonus (or at the DM's option +2 or +3). It may even function normally in combat against a deadly enemy, but each time it is used in melee against a foe, there is a one in 20 cumulative chance that it will function against its wielder. Once it begins functioning in this way, you can't get rid of it without a remove curse spell. The character always seems to find the spear in his hand despite his best efforts or intentions. When the curse takes effect, the spear curls around to strike its wielder in the back, negating any shield and Dexterity bonuses to Armor Class, and inflicting normal damage. The curse even functions when the spear is hurled, but if the wielder has hurled the spear, the damage done to the hurler will be double. Once the spear has returned to him, the character will again find himself compelled to use the spear.

    [Back to the top]
     

  26. Sun Blade:

    This sword is the size of a bastard sword. However, its enchantment enables the sun blade to be wielded as if it were a short sword with respect to encumbrance, weight, speed factor, and ease of use (i.e., the weapon appears to all viewers to be a bastard sword, and inflicts bastard sword damage, but the wielder feels and reacts as if the weapon were a short sword). Any individual able to use either a bastard sword or a short sword with proficiency is proficient in the use of a sun blade. In normal combat, the glowing golden blade of the weapon is equal to a +2 sword. Against evil creatures, its bonus is +4. Against Negative Energy Plane creatures or those drawing power from that plane (such as certain undead), the sword inflicts double damage. Furthermore, the blade has a special sunray power. Once a day, upon command, the blade can be swung vigorously above the head, and it will shed a bright yellow radiance that is like full daylight. The radiance begins shining in a 10-foot radius around the sword-wielder, spreading outward at 5 feet per round for 10 rounds thereafter, creating a globe of light with a 60-foot radius. When the swinging stops, the radiance fades to a dim glow that persists for another turn before disappearing entirely. All sun blades are of good alignment.

    [Back to the top]
     

  27. Sword +1, +2 vs. magic-using and enchanted creatures:

    This sword always provides a +1 bonus. The +2 bonus takes effect when the sword is employed against wizards, monsters that can cast spells, and conjured, created, gated, or summoned creatures. Note that the +2 bonus would not operate against a creature magically empowered by an item (such as a ring of spell storing) to cast spells.

    [Back to the top]
     

  28. Sword +1, +3 vs. lycanthropes and shape changers:

    This gives its +3 against werecreatures-those able to assume the form of another creature (such as a vampire or a druid), or any creature under the influence of a polymorph or shape change spell.

    [Back to the top]
     

  29. Sword +1, +3 vs. regenerating creatures:

    This will give the +3 bonus to its wielder even when the regenerating creature does so because of a magical device-such as a ring of regeneration.

    [Back to the top]
     

  30. Sword +1, +4 vs. reptiles:

    this gives the +4 against such creatures as dinosaurs, dragons, hydras, lizards, snakes, wyverns, etc.

    [Back to the top]
     

  31. Sword +1, cursed:

    This performs in all respects as a +1 weapon, but when its wielder is faced by an enemy, the sword will weld itself to the character's hand and force him to fight until the enemy or the wielder is slain. Thereafter, the possessor can loose, but never rid himself of, the cursed sword. No matter what is done, it will appear in his hand whenever an opponent is faced. The character can be freed of the weapon only by a remove curse spell.

    [Back to the top]
     

  32. Sword +1, flame tongue, +2 vs. regenerating creatures, +3 vs. cold-using, inflammable, or avian creatures, +4 vs. undead:

    This sheds light when its possessor speaks a command word or phrase. When activated, the flame tongue sword's fire illuminates the area as brightly as a torch. The flame from this sword easily ignites oil, burns webs, or sets fire to paper, parchment, dry wood, etc. Cold-using creatures are those whose attack mode involves cold (ice toads, white dragons, winter wolves, yeti, etc.).

    [Back to the top]
     

  33. Sword +1, Luck Blade:

    This gives its possessor a +1 bonus to all saving throws and will have 1d4+1 wishes. The DM should keep the number of wishes secret.

    [Back to the top]
     

  34. Sword +2, Dragon Slayer:

    This has a +4 bonus against any sort of true dragon. It inflicts triple damage against one sort of dragon (i.e., 3d12+4). Note that an unusual sword with intelligence and alignment will not be made to slay dragons of the same alignment. Determine dragon type (excluding unique ones like Bahamut and Tiamat) by rolling 1d10: 1 black (CE) 6 gold (LG) 2 blue (LE) 7 green (LE) 3 brass (CG) 8 red (CE) 4 bronze (LG) 9 silver (LG) 5 copper (CG) 10 white (CE)

    [Back to the top]
     

  35. Sword +2, Giant Slayer:

    This provides a +3 bonus versus any giant, giant-kin, ettin, ogre mage, or titan. Against any of the true giants (hill, stone, frost, fire, cloud, storm) the sword causes double damage (i.e., 2d12+3).

    [Back to the top]
     

  36. Sword, Short, of Quickness:

    This is a special +2 blade that enables the wielder to strike first in every combat round. If the wielder encounters someone with a similar weapon (e.g., a scimitar of speed), both strike simultaneously.

    [Back to the top]
     

  37. Sword+2, Nine Lives Stealer:

    This will always perform as a +2 weapon, but it also has the power to draw the life force from an opponent. It can do this nine times before the ability is lost. A natural 20 must be scored on the wielder's attack roll for the sword to function. The victim is entitled to a saving throw vs. spell. If this succeeds, the sword does not function, no charge is used, and normal damage is determined.

    [Back to the top]
     

  38. Sword+3, Frost Brand, +6 vs. fire-using/dwelling creatures:

    This sword always provides a +3 bonus. The +6 bonus takes effect against creatures that use fire or live in fiery environments. The weapon does not shed any light, except when the air temperature is below 0 degrees F. It does give special benefits against fire, for its wielder is protected as if he were wearing a ring of fire resistance. The frost brand sword also has a 50% chance of extinguishing any fire into which its blade is thrust. This power extends to a 10-foot radius-including a wall of fire but excluding a fireball, meteor swarm, or flame strike.

    [Back to the top]
     

  39. Sword,+4 Defender: This gives its wielder the option of using all, some, or none of the +4 bonus in defense (improving his Armor Class) against any opponent using a hand-held weapon, such as a dagger, mace, spear (not hurled), sword, etc. For example, the wielder can, on the first round of battle, opt to use the sword as +2 and save the other two bonus factors to be added to his Armor Class. This can be done each round. Note that there is also a sword, +5 defender. This is identical to the +4 sword with one extra bonus point.

    [Back to the top]
     

  40. Sword, +5 Holy Avenger:

    In the hands of any character other than a paladin, this holy sword will perform only as a sword +2. In the hands of a paladin, however, it creates a magic resistance of 50% in a 5-foot radius, dispels magic in a 5-foot radius at the level of the paladin, and inflicts +10 points of bonus damage upon chaotic evil opponents.

    [Back to the top]
     

  41. Sword -2, cursed:

    This is a sword that gives off a magical aura and performs well against targets in practice, but when it is used against an opponent in combat it lowers its user's attack rolls by -2. Only by careful observation can this lowering be detected. All damage scored is reduced by 2 hit points, but never below a 1 in any event. The sword will always force the character to employ it against enemies, appearing in the character's hand. It can be gotten rid of only by means of limited wish or wish.

    [Back to the top]
     

  42. Sword of Dancing:

    On the first round of melee this weapon is +1, on the second +2, on the third +3, and on the fourth it is +4. On the fifth round, it drops back to +1 and the cycle begins again. In addition, after four rounds of melee its wielder can opt to allow it to "dance." Dancing consists of loosing the sword on any round (after the first) when its bonus is +1. The sword then fights on its own at the same level of experience as its wielder. After four rounds of dancing, the sword returns to its wielder, who must hold it (and use it) for four rounds before it can dance again. In other words, it is loosed to dance for four more rounds, going from +1 to +4, and must then be held by its wielder at a +1 state and physically used for four successive rounds of melee combat. When dancing, the sword will leave its owner's hand and may go up to 30 feet distant. At the end of its fourth round of solo combat, it will move to its possessor's hand automatically. Note that when dancing the sword cannot be physically hit, although certain magical attacks such as a fireball, lightning bolt, or transmute metal to wood spell could affect it. Finally, remember that the dancing sword fights alone exactly the same; if a 7th-level thief is the wielder, the sword will so fight when dancing. Relieved of his weapon for four melee rounds, the possessor may act in virtually any manner desired-resting, discharging missiles, drawing another weapon and engaging in hand-to-hand combat, etc.-as long as he remains within 30 feet of the sword. If he moves more than 30 feet from the weapon, it falls lifeless to the ground and is a +1 weapon when again grasped.

  43. Sword of Wounding:

    This is a sword of only +1 bonus, but any hit made with it cannot be healed by regeneration. In subsequent rounds, the opponent so wounded loses one additional hit point for each wound inflicted by the sword. Thus, an opponent hit for four points of damage on the first melee round will automatically lose one additional hit point on the second and each successive round of combat. Loss of the extra point stops only when the creature so wounded bandages its wound or after 10 melee rounds (one turn). Damage from a sword of wounding can be healed only by normal means (rest and time), never by potion, spell, or other magical means short of a wish. Note that successive wounds will damage in the same manner as the first.

  44. Sword of Life Stealing:

    This +2 weapon will eliminate one level of experience (or Hit Die) and accompanying hit points and abilities when it strikes any opponent on a natural roll of 20. This function is the same as the level-draining ability of certain undead creatures. The sword wielder can gain as many hit points as an opponent loses to this function of the weapon, up to the maximum number of hit points the character is allowed (i.e., only a character who has suffered loss of hit points can benefit from the function).

  45. Sword of Sharpness:

    This weapon is treated as +3 or better for purposes of who or what can be hit by it, even though it gets only a +1 bonus to attack and damage rolls. Its power is great, however, for on a very high attack roll, it will sever an extremity-arm, leg, neck, tail, tentacle, whatever (but not head) determined by random dice roll: Modified score Opponent is to sever* normal/armored 19-21 larger than man-sized 20-21 Solid metal or stone 21 * Considering only the sword's bonus of +1. A sword of sharpness will respond to its wielder's desire with respect to the light it sheds-none, a 5-foot circle of dim illumination, a 15-foot light, or a 30-foot radius glow equal to a light spell.

  46. Sword, Vorpal:

    Similar but superior to a sword of sharpness, a vorpal weapon has a +3 bonus to attack and damage rolls. Check the table below to determine whether an attack roll is good enough to sever the neck/head of the opponent: Modified score Opponent is to sever* normal/armored 20-23 larger than man-sized 21-23 solid metal or stone 22-23 * Considering only the sword's bonus of +3. Note that many creatures have no heads or can change their form and, therefore, cannot suffer decapitation. There are also creatures that have heads but will not necessarily be killed by decapitation (among these are dopplegangers, elementals, and golems).

  47. Sword of the Planes:

    This magical weapon has a base bonus of +1 on the Prime Material Plane, but on any Inner Plane its bonus increases to +2. (The +2 bonus also applies on the Prime Material Plane when the weapon is used against opponents from the Inner Planes.) Similarly, when used on an Outer Plane or against creatures from the Outer Planes, the sword becomes a +3 weapon. Finally, it operates as a +4 weapon on the Astral or Ethereal Plane or when used against opponents from either of those planes.

  48. Sword, Cursed Berserking:

    This performs by every test, save that of the heat of battle, as a +2 magical sword of some sort. However, in actual battle its wielder will go berserk, attacking the nearest creature and continuing to fight until dead or until no living thing remains within 60 feet. The sword has a +2 bonus and otherwise acts as a cursed sword +1. The possessor of a cursed berserking sword can be rid of it only if it is exorcised via a remove curse spell or wish.

  49. Trident of Submission:

    A weapon of this nature appears unremarkable, exactly as any normal trident. The wielder of a trident of submission causes any opponent struck to save vs. spell. If the opponent fails to save, it must check morale the next round instead of attacking; if morale is good, the opponent may act normally next round, but if it is poor, the opponent will cease fighting and surrender, overcome with a feeling of hopelessness. The duration of this hopelessness is 2-8 rounds. Thereafter the creature is normal once again. The trident has 17-20 charges. A trident of this type is a +1 magical weapon.

  50. Trident of Fish Command:

    This three-tined fork atop a stout 6-foot long rod appears to be a barbed military fork of some sort. However, its magical properties enable its wielder to cause all fish within a 60-foot radius to roll saving throws vs. spell. This uses one charge of the trident. Fish failing this throw are completely under empathic command and will not attack the possessor of the trident nor any creature within 10 feet of him. The wielder of the device can cause fish to move in whatever direction is desired and can convey messages of emotion (i.e., fear, hunger, anger, indifference, repletion, etc.). Fish making their saving throw are free of empathic control, but they will not approach within 10 feet of the trident. In addition to ordinary fish, the trident affects sharks and eels. It doesn't affect mollusks, crustaceans, amphibians, reptiles, mammals, and similar sorts of nonpiscine marine creatures. A school of fish should be checked as a single entity. A trident of this type contains 1d4+16 charges. It is otherwise a +1 magical weapon.

  51. Trident of Warning:

    A weapon of this type enables its wielder to determine the location, depth, species, and number of hostile or hungry marine predators within 240 feet. A trident of warning must be grasped and pointed in order for the person using it to gain such information, and it requires one round to scan a hemisphere with a radius of 240 feet. There are 19-24 charges in a trident of this type, each charge sufficient to last for two rounds of scanning. The weapon is otherwise a +2 magical weapon.

  52. Trident of Yearning:

    A trident of yearning looks exactly like any normal trident, and its aura is indistinguishable from that of other enchanted weapons of this sort. Any character grasping this type of trident immediately feels an overwhelming desire to immerse himself in as great a depth of water as possible. This unquenchable longing causes the affected character to proceed immediately toward the largest/deepest body of water-in any event, one that is sufficient to completely cover his or her person. Once there, he will immerse himself permanently. The character cannot loose his grip on the trident, and only a water breathing spell (after submersion) or a wish will enable the character to do so. The trident is otherwise a -2 cursed magical weapon. Note that this item does not confer the ability to breathe underwater.
