Stonemetal Armour

This brown metal breastplate, once strapped on, will quickly cover the rest of the wearer's body as if they were wearing plate mail. For the purposes of putting it on, taking it off or general comfort, it's considered to be leather armour.
The weight factor is 4.5, it reduces AG by 2 and provides 10 Protection.
Whoever casts Strength of Stone or Armour of Earth on the wearer will pay one less point of FT.
If the armour's Protection value has been reduced because of a Specific Grievous Injury to the chest or back, it will cost 3,000 sp and take ten days to repair. All other damage will repair when the breastplate is put on after dawn the next day.
The wearer subtracts 10 from the die roll whenever they attempt to resist magic, making it more likely that they will succeed. It does not increase Magic Resistance.
If the Rank of the Armour of Earth is less than Rank 10, the armour will absorb one point of damage from any source, including magic, poison or disease. It will not affect the special damage of Specific Grievous injuries, however. If the spell is Rank 10 but less than Rank 20, the armour will absorb three points and at Rank 20 the armour will absorb six.
There is a bezel on the inside of the armour at about the place where the wearer's heart would be. A gem may be secured therein by a jeweller or goldsmith who will need to take about half an hour at the task. If this is done, then the wearer may destroy the gem to avoid damage.
It takes no particular time to destroy the gem, so the wearer may elect to do so at any time in the pulse without requiring any particular action. They may not use it when they are surprised, however.
For every gold shilling that the gem is worth, one point of damage is entirely avoided. No more than 75 points of instantaneous damage may be avoided in this way.
If Gem Creation is used to create a gem to set in the bezel, then the Rank of the spell replaces its value in gold shillings.

Bound Stone Glaive

Tooth of Kamarash - Dragon of Earth

Forged with the haft of a black wood that feels like iron, the blde of this glaive is made of a single piece of polished basalt with three holes bored through - one in the middle of the blade and the other two near the top and bottom respectively. Along the edge of the glaive are glyphs which, upon closer inspection, appear to have been carved into the stone with claws. When blood is drawn, these glyphs glow either a deep red, the colour of magma and the blade glows hot, or the glyphs become a deep blue and the edge covers quickly in ice. Carved into the haft of the glaive are runes which glow golden when the wielder goes into battle. It is masterworked for +2 damage. It deals additional +2 damage to targets of Fire or Ice (wielder's choice). Fire and water/ice based creatures are immune from the elemental damage that applies and take twice damage from the opposite. Magical resistance does not apply as it is the intense heat or cold that causes the damage. The Mind mage talent does not protect the recipient.


  • Wielder must have effective PS of 18
  • Major damage cannot be repaired on any plane except Gaea
  • Once a month, the glaive must rest within earth, fully covered for twelve hours undisturbed. This has the minor benefit of repairing any chips, nicks and dents but will not repair the blade if it has been cracked from top to bottom or blade to haft,

Value: 10,000sp

  • GTN: Magical, ToM: Fire
  • Value 10,000sp

Crossbow of Light

This crossbow is of an unusual design in that it has no obvious crossbar or trigger. It is about 2ft long and lighter than expected from the size. The material is of an unknown origin.

The crossbow generates a bolt of light which fires from the end of the crossbow. This is powered from the mama which is fed into the crossbow by an adept. The crossbow takes a complete pass action to recharge and may only be recharged when completely depleted.

It takes three spell fatigue to charge and will hold this charge for up to 24 hours.

Reliable Rucksack

This large leather backpack has a warm, rosey, colour to it, with visible patches of white where it has been exposed to something along the way. When opened, two compartments can be seen, a main one sized normally, and another slim compartment.

Effects: This pack can hold 60lbs of gear in the main compartment. In the slim compartment, an adept can store or draw forth the following items: This works much more like major creation than any kind of real storage, so magical items can not be stored.

  • Tents, Blankets, Tarpaulin and Winter Furs.
  • Tool-kits for 2 skills (about 10lb each, rank of toolkit is whatever the user has stored)
  • Food and Water for 3 days of a basic quality.

Medal of Bravery

This is a golden starburst medal which must be worn openly to be effective. Whenever the wearer has to make a fright check due to non-magical means (i.e. excludes spells which cause rolling on the fear table) the difficulty factor is raised by 1. (eg, a 4 PB troll requires a fright check at 4xWP, the wearer of the medal makes the check at 5xWP).

Value 1500sp

Portable Hole

  • Plane of Origin: Greyhawk
  • Nature of Magic: Dimensional weaving
  • Physical Appearance: The portable hole is a square of finely woven magical cloth, black with a silvery sheen.
  • Dimensions: When fully opened the portable hole is 5 ft square, but it can be folded as small as a pocket handkerchief.
  • Weight: 1 oz
  • Effects: When spread open on any surface, the portable hole causes an extra-dimensional space 5 ft deep to come into being. This hole can be "picked up" by simply taking hold of the edges of the cloth and folding it up. The entrance disappears, but the contents of the hole, if inanimate and non-magical, will remain within. The cloth does not accumulate weight, even if its space is completely filled. Placing living creatures and magical items inside the hole is possible, but there is a 5% chance for every such placement that the hole will rupture, spilling its contents into Astral space. Placing any other extra-dimensional extension device within the hole always ruptures it, destroying both items, and sucking all matter within 20 ft into the Astral.

Ring of Life-Linking (Snake Motif)

  • Plane of Origin: Alusia
  • Nature of Magic: Empathy
  • Physical Appearance: This is an ornate gold ring bearing the device of a coiled snake.
  • Effects: This is one of a linked pair of rings made for a couple who wish to remain in contact with each other. The rings provide an empathic link between the wearers, passing basic feelings and emotions back and forth. They cannot be used as signalling equipment by the generation of false emotion - they send only what is a real response to external stimuli. Nor can the rings be used to heal the other person or exactly locate them.

A wearer of one of these rings can sense the direction, but not the distance, of the other wearer within a rough 90° arc when they are both on the same plane. When the wearers are on different planes, only the most intense emotional experiences may be conveyed, such as those associated with death, birth or torture. The emanations of these rings may be blocked by the workings of the Powers, or hidden when one of the wearers is in an area warded against Mind, Illusion or Namer magic. In the latter case, a Dio should be rolled each day, a 10 indicating that a rough direction is sensed. If blocked by a Power, this may still be attempted, but once only.

These items were originally made on Alusia for Flamis and Basalic, but greatly altered by the magic of the Arch Mage Lawfakir of Greyhawk.

Wand of Earth Range

A wand that lets Earth mages cast Trollskin at a range of 10 + 10 per rank that they reduce the overall rank of the trollskin being cast by i.e. a rank 15 trollskin cast at rank 10 would have a bonus range of 60ft for a cast chance and duration of rank 10.

  • Aura: Magical

  • Nature of Magic: Earth
  • Magically trapped, warded or cursed: No
  • Weight: 3 lbs

Bone Staff

Another wand. It may be used as a staff by little people. It increases MA by 2 and FT by 5 when held. If used to strike, it drains the target of D+1 EN which will heal EN and then restore FT. It may only be enchanted by entity branch spells.

  • Weight: 6 lbs
  • Strike Chance: 50
  • Damage: D+4
  • Class: C

Choker of Wind & Spikes

This magical spiked choker is made of pure silver and a small amount of Truesilver.

When the weapons and scabbards are on the belt, they do not encumber or slow the wearer and do not weigh anything. The belt is also enchanted so that the items cannot be removed without the wearer noticing. The weapons can almost always be readied for use within a single action

This small green, blue, and white porcelain egg has a fine blue twine at the top. Upon opening the egg a 3ft spout of warm water jets out of the egg for up to 120 seconds before stopping (stops if closed).

If open and tipped on its side, the egg will create a cup of mostly clean drinkable warm water in ten seconds. The egg will continue producing water for up to 120 seconds before stopping. The egg can be used six times a day (sunrise to sunset).

The egg may be recognized for what it is, which is a gift from the Emperor of the Lunar Empire to extreme individuals for services to the Lunar Empire. In this case, it was awarded for qualifying into the Lunar Empire's Winter Games in 806. If recognized it may produce a positive reaction roll of +10%

  • Nature of Magic: Bardic
  • Physical Appearance: This appears to be a rather ordinary teddy bear.
  • Dimensions: The teddy bear is 16 inches tall.
  • Weight: 1 pound
  • Effects: The teddy bear was originally made to soothe the maker's crying child, and enable said child to sleep comfortably. It hums softly to a person who cuddles it, enabling that person to fall asleep readily and keeps them at a comfortable temperature, so that they gain back one more fatigue per hour trhan they would otherwise. In addition the bear is permanently waterproof and dirt resistant.
  • Value: 2000sp

Goggles of Sand Vision

These goggles are metal rimmed with clear glass in them, and a half leather hood, almost to hold them on the head, clearly meant to keep them secure even in high winds.

Effects: PC becomes a minimum of 15. This is after penalties imposed by outside effects that reduce PC, however lost eyes can reduce this below 15. It also adds 20% to resist sand, wind, or light magics, which will not stack with counterspells and general resistance to non-magical weather effects such as sandstorm and sun strike. They can also see up to PC - rank of the magic foot range despite obscurements or light/dark. Any spec grev to the head area will break these goggles even if the weapon class is wrong, the entity is immune or the spec grev is negated. Aura Strength: Magical
Nature of Magic: Vision
Plane of Origin: Plane of Dust
Value: 5,000sp
