Angels Sword of Leadership Invented by Sation
(or: "The Silvery Dead of Deamons")

This highly unique and powerful weapon is a two-handed sword, made out of glass. When found, the glass will be completely clear, but as soon as it is picked up by a person with a Lawful Good alignment, the will start glowing with a white light. If it happens to be a True Good person, the light will still be white, but the blade itself will turn silvery.
The light that shines from the sword is generated from the goodness in the holders heart, and any creatures of good alignment seeing the light (it is enough just to be fighting with the bag to the wielder or similarly situations, but it don't work on blind persons), gains the following benefits:

- Immunity to Fear and Terror
- Affected by Bless, Prayer, Cloak of Bravery

Once a day, the holder can send a wave of light that will heal 1 point/level on the holder and any creature within 20 feet. The number of points healed are multiplied by the numbers from table 1. Evil creatures will receive damage instead of healing.

Table 1.

TG   LG  CG  NG  LN  TN  CN  NE  LE  CE  TE
x10 x5 x2 x1 0 0 0 x1 x2 x5 x10

Evil creatures fear this sword on instinct, and must pass a saving throw versus Paralyze, or flee until out of sight of the sword. They will not be able to return for the next turn. If they fail their saving throws 3 times, they can never face the sword again. If one is forced to do so, it will turn insane for out of fear.
Those making their saving throws, are still affected by the sword, getting a -2 penalty to Hit, Damage, Saving Throws and Morale.

If the holder of the sword is of a True Good alignment, he gets the following additional abilities:

Arrows of Distance Invented by Hogan
(XP 150, GP 200 each)

Not that rare, but quite useful anyway, the Arrows of Distance has found their way into many a frontier Ranger's quiver.
Put in short, the Arrows of Distance is normal arrows, but with a speed that let them be launched with a -2 to initiative and also allow them to cover twice the distance of normal arrows of that type (depending on the bow being used).
Normally Arrows of Distance is found in packages of 3d6, and in 80% of the cases, they are Flight arrows, best used for hunting. The resting 20% means that a package of Sheaf arrows for use in war has been recovered.

Arrow of Dragonfear Invented by Hogan
(XP 200, GP 300, both per age category)

An Arrow of Dragonfear is a sheaf arrow with no special properties except for those who gave it its name! When an Arrow of Dragonfear is fired, every creature within 15 feet of the arrow's path (except for the bow-wielder) must save vs. petrification or become stricken with a Dragonfear much similar to that radiated by the oldest dragons.
The fear aura emitted by the arrow is active for a timespan of 4d6 rounds and likewise is the effect. Those who fail the saving throw are too stricken to fight properly and receive a -2 penalty to their attack and damage. Those who fail the saving AND have fewer Hit Dice than the Age Category or the arrow (Very Old is regarded as category 1) is forced to flee the area as fast as possible for 1d4 rounds.

1d4		modifier
1   Very Old	- 1
2   Venerable	- 2
3   Wyrm	 -3
4   Great Wyrm	- 4
The Arrow must end its path in a none-organic, none-sentient object, as just a drop of blood of other life-giving fluid drowns the fear aura and immediately renders the arrow useless. The arrows aura is still active while it is planted, so anyone entering the area is subject to its powers. Once saved successfully, the recipient is immune to that arrows effect.
The arrow is a one-use only item, and usually only one such arrow is found.

Arrows of Love Invented by Mind Flayer

These Flight Arrows remind one quite a lot of "Fire Arrows". They have a golden arrowhead which burns with a 4 inches clear yellow flame. The flame only gives out light, it's neither hot or cold and it only causes a slight tickling where it touches.
The Arrows of Love belong to the son of Afrodite, Love. Love (with the permission of Afrodite of course) sometimes sends some of his Arrows down to earth, to create a little bit of chaos since the Gods love when there are Chaos on the ground. Off course the chaos created by the arrows are not serious chaos, but the Gods loves it anyway. Love can place his arrows anywhere, even in other dimensions (even its very seldom he does that).
The Arrows of love are impossible to duplicate by any mortal, even Gods find it difficult to make one. Only Love possesses the skill to make them properly, but he only has to say a word, and his quiver is full.
The Arrows of Love are true creators of love. When somebody is hit by an arrow, he or she takes no damage, but immediately falls in love with the nearest person of the opposite sex. If none of the opposite sex is in sight, it is the handsomest of the same sex who pays the price of being encumbered with the lovestricken person. The arrows can be used against any intelligent creature, which understands the concept of love, and has a sex, so even most Demons are affected. Even if the Demons know of the subject of Love, their souls are normally not touched by it, but the case of the Arrows of love, is another matter.
A person hit by one of these arrows, always seem to be hit in the chest, and the arrow will go straight into the body as if it would pass all the way through, but it won't. Instead it will slowly fade away and disappear.
When some body tries to identify an Arrow of Love by help of the spell of the same name, something strange is happening. The arrowhead will turn red, and so too will the flame. If the flame happens to touch the caster of the Identify spell, he will feel a slight thumping as when a heart beats. These effects care only noticed by the caster, and a curse visited upon him at the same moment, makes it impossible for him to tell about the curse or the powers of the arrow to anyone else.

Arrow of Passing Invented by Odwin "Odds" Bodkin

These rare +2 arrows can pass through solid barriers of wood, stone, metal, or any combination thereof, as if they weren't even there.
The arrows are limited in penetration ability by the thickness and strength of material. An arrow of passing could pass through single barriers of wood up to 3 feet, stone up to 2 feet, and metal up to 1 foot, or any combination thereof, up to the individual limit of the strongest material.
For example, an arrow of passing could pass through 1 foot of wood and 1 foot of stone, but not 2 feet of wood and 1 foot of stone. Therefore, shields and armor typically provide no protection, and respective AC adjustments do not apply.
Once the arrows pass through a solid barrier, hit or miss, they lose their magic and strike the next target.

Arrow of Replenishing Invented by Odwin "Odds" Bodkin

This arrow is a +2, but looks like a normal arrow.
When kept in a quiver (or similar container), the arrow keeps the quiver full up to 20 additional normal arrows. Unfortunately, the other arrows look exactly like the magic one. Therefore, unless it is secured inside the quiver to prevent removal, it has a chance of accidentally being used.
Once launched from a bow, the arrow's magic is lost.

Assassins Blade Invented by Søren Surlykke

An Assassins Blade is quite a potent weapon, not only does it carry a +1 to +5 bonus, it is also able to conceal itself, thereby making it much harder to find than normal blades.
An Assassins Blade can never be found when carried on a person, not unless the searcher is specially trained in finding hidden weapons (guards are considered trained), and even if the searcher is well-trained, a casual search won't come up with anything.
To find an Assassins Blade, it takes either
1) A trained searcher, doing a throughout search and making a successful intelligence check (with a modifier as big as that of the weapons bonus, and a penalty equal to 1/3 of the users level) or
2) magic of some sort, perhaps a custom-made spell, designed to reveal hidden weapons.

Example:
Caldar (a 3rd level fighter/thief) is hired to kill the king. He uses an Assassins Blade +4, and while carrying it, he walks straight into the castle. The guard (Int 14) makes a throughout search, and must now make an intelligence check with a (-4-(1/3*3)) -5 modifier. Luckily for Caldar, he doesn't make it, and Caldar is allowed into the castle, but now he must find a spot for the assassination.

Note that Assassins Blades are never made in other forms than Knifes or Daggers, if they were, they would be easily found.

Axe of Madness Invented by Hogan

The unique Axe of Madness is a massive Two-Handed Battle Axe +2, mithril enforced and gold-inlaid.
Powerful it may seem and look, the axe carries properties that makes it a danger to more than those who oppose it.
Whenever the axe is used in battle, the wielder will find him self slowly slipping into madness. After 1d4 rounds of use, his alignment will suddenly change to chaotic neutral and his actions will start becoming random and based upon incomprehensible ideas in his own mind. This means that each round there is a 50% chance that the wielder of the axe will strike out against a friend of his…or if no friends are present, a random object or bypasser, or perhaps cease combat all together for that round! Only when all battle has totally ceased, meaning there is no one left to attack, that is, no one left who's deemed an enemy by his present state of mind.
The axe is easily recognized by an Identify spell, but should the wielder choose to keep the weapon on his person, perhaps for use in special rule-bending circumstances, he will face the fact, that whenever he reaches for a weapon, there is a 67% chance that he involuntary will grasp the Axe of Madness. This he will not realize before he has made the first strike with the weapon.

Black Axe Invented by Hogan

This eerie and unique weapon of darkness was originally worn by the mighty Skeleton Lord Krellian Bloodbane when he arose from his grave and lead his undead hordes in a conquest of the northern wastes. After a long and tremendous campaign with heavy looses to the defenders, he was finally defeated by the Dwarven clans of Ironfast Keep. His weapon though, disappeared and is possible now in the hands of another warrior somewhere between life and dead.
The Black Axe, as the weapon was known among the Dwarves who struggled against the undeads of Bloodbane, is a mighty Battle Axe +3, originally forged from a dark unknown metal, but took on other properties at the dead and reborn of its owner. Now hovering between life and dead, it is not truly a "thing" anymore and more undead than real! As such the blade is insubstantial and will pass through armors and other none-magical obstructions as if they were not there, only leaving protection bonuses from dexterity and magical bonuses. Though is passes through such protection easily enough, it still deals damage to the living, and any hit will cause an additional 1d6 of chilling damage to any mortal being, due to the unearthly cold of the axe.
Furthermore, the dark metal of the blade has since its "dead" taken on a shadowy hypnotizing sheen, making everyone looking directly at the blade (as will happen if they are caught by surprise) think himself being drawn into a vortex of shadow, instantly freezing him with disorientation for one round.
As a weapon of the dead, any living person handling the axe will feel the cold of the netherworld, taking 1d4 point of damage for every round in contact with the weapon. Isolation cannot hold this unearthly cold at bay and only the undeads may safefully touch and use this weapon.

Blightblade Invented by TOK

A Blightblade is a magical enchanted bladed weapon, which has the ability to, once a week, force any creature struck by the weapon to make a save Vs Death Magic or be instantly slain. Otherwise the weapon is counted as a +2 weapon and 86% of any Blightblades found, also has the ability to cast Darkness as a priest (or a wizard) as per the characters level.

Blodletter Invented by Søren Surlykke

The Bloodletter is a magical two-handed sword +6. All wounds made with this weapon will keep bleeding, causing an additional 1hp/wound pr. round of damage.
The wearer of the sword is also gifted with a sight better than most mortals. While he is in combat or any other activity using the Blodletter, he is not subject to any illusions, neither fooled by invisibility.
A bad thing about Bloodletter is that when a character is using it, his AC is lowered by 3, and ALL dex-based AC-adjustments are lost as well. All this is due to the fact, that the wielder goes into rage and does not care for his own safety. In this rage he will view anyone and anything as an enemy, the only exception is other PC's, henchmen and their like. The user of the sword could actually attack a common mouse instead of the (surprised) red dragon.

Blue Mace Invented by Martigan

This footmans mace is made of pure titanium crafted by dwarven soldiers that lives in the surroundings of Thunder Peaks, Cormyr. The craft is unique, since the blue maces are made under much mysterious circumstanses. No one but the dwarves knows its recepie, at they've sworn an oath to keep its secret close. Since Thunder Peaks is a dangerous place to live, the soldiers need to have a good weapon, to outlive their enemies; Giants and their rocks hurled in the air.
The blue mace looks like any footmans mace, although it is made of titanium and therefore is extremely light in its weight (it weighs 5 lb.). It is weilded in any particular way, but has one giant advantage against any true giant and their rocks, that are often used to hurl against their enemies. The blue mace will, if raised to use, turn any rock thrown by a giant to dust immediately. The second the rock comes in to contact with the mace, the rock turns to dust and will not hurt the holder of the mace or his followers in any way. The blue mace will not take damage from this attack, but the wielder must have at least the strength of 18 or better to use the speciality of the weapon. Therefore a strength-check is aquired every time the wielder uses the benefit of the weapon. If the strength-check is failed, the weilder is crushed to the ground, suffering 1D4 in damage. An attack must be made for the mace to hit the rock (the rock is concidered an AC of 5).

Bolt of Exploding Invented by Mind Flayer
(8000 - 9000gp)

The Bolt of Exploding is a very powerful charged Crossbow Quarrel, which is to be used for a Heavy Crossbow. It's a one-use only item, but when fired from a Crossbow of the right size, it will on impact explode with 10d6 in damage to everybody within 30 feet.
Creatures that usually need magical weapons to be hit, take less damage. For each +1 necessary, the damage is lowered with 2d6. A creature that need +5 weapons to be hit, will never take damage from one of these bolts.
The Bolts of Exploding were produced in the bowels of the Nine Hells by the minions of Myrkul, the God of Death. Once a month, 5 arrows was send to the Prime Material Plane to be distributed as Myrkul saw fit.
Due to its hellish den of creation, a Bolt of Exploding is very difficult to identify by mortals. who suffer a penalty of 40% when trying to do so

Bolt of Heartseeking Invented by Sation

These very rare Hand Crossbow bolts have heads and shaft of adamantium and feathers of red hawks, and therefore nothing but the feathers would remain if it were ever to be exposed to sunlight. They can only be forged by the 5 high priestess of Lolth, each from their own noble house, and they are very careful about whom they are given to, since the world of the Drow is a world of backstabbing and betrayal. Therefore the bolts are even more rare on the surface world, but some of the best assassins that exist, have been know to have used them on very important jobs. Rumors has it that they have been sold on the black market for as much as 100.000 GP per bolt, but only a few will know if that is true.
The powers of these bolt lies in the name. When fired from a Hand Crossbow they will (if a successful hit) strike the heart of the target, steal the persons soul and planeshift the bolt to Lolth herself, effectively making it impossible to resurrect the target even with a Wish since Lolth will counter any attempts to do so. Interference from another God might do the trick but the person in speaking has to be very important to the God before it will attempt to challenge Lolth. Even if the to hit roll fails (not if you fumble however) the bolt can still be deadly as it will guide itself to the target but will not be as precise. Effectively this means that the target get a save vs. poison/death magic with a -4 modifier and if successful, the bolt deals damage like a normal bolt. A failure however, resolves in a heart strike and is treated as a successful hit. A fumble is treated according to the rules for that, but remember that if you hit yourself, a friend or anything else that is alive, then it will be treated like a successful hit with the visited effect.
Once the bolt has been launched, its powers are used, no matter if it hits or not.
These bolts only work on living objects that have a heart and a soul. Note therefore that undead, golems, elementals, demons, etc. are not effected, neither are beings of similar or greater power than Lolth.
The only thing that will protect you from this is divine magic, no mortal magic will protect you not even stoneskinned.

Bullets of Repulsion Invented by Hogan
(400 GP, 300 XP)

Bullets of Repulsion are small leaden bullets, much like the once use for slings and staff-slings. The bullets are designed to be used by such weapons, to be hurled against a target. Upon successfully hitting that target, they bullets will bestow an effect much similar to the wizardly Repulsion-spell, except that it is more direct force. If the target doesn't make a successfully saving throw vs. death magic, he is thrown off his feet and hurled 3 feet through the air for each point taken in damage. Since the bullets of repulsion gives damage as normal sling bullets, a normal slinger without any special strength could throw the target from 6 to 15 feet (considering damage against size S-M opponents to be 1d4+1). Even if the target should be impervious to the initially damage (the bullets are not magical weapons), he can still be moved by the repulsion of the impact. For each 3 feet thrown, 1d2 points are taken in damage.
The Bullets of Repulsion are normally found in small bags in numbers of 1d6.

Chromatic Bow Invented by Hogan

A Chromatic Bow is a Short Bow +2, made from an unknown sort of dark wood that makes the bow strong as steel but yet flexible as the best Elven bows. If looked at very carefully for a few minutes, small stripes of colored metal will become obvious between the fibers of the bow. Whoever made the bow in the first place is not known, but nobody has yet to make a successful and functionally duplicate.
As standard, all arrows fired from the Chromatic Bow, will be fired with the bows +2 bonus, and all normal (none-magical) arrows will be changed into +2 arrows with regards to damage and immunities.
10 times a day, at the point of launching a knocked arrow, the special powers of the bow can be called for to change the arrow into one of the following types:

Black Arrow (Arrow of Acid) - Deals an additional 2d6 in acid damage to target.
Blue Arrow (Arrow of Lightning) - Deals an additional 2d6 in electrical damage to target.
Green Arrow (Arrow of Poison) - Deals an additional 2d6 in poison damage to target.
Red Arrow (Arrow of Fire) - Deals an additional 2d6 in fire damage to target.
White Arrow (Arrow of Ice) - Deals an additional 2d6 in cold damage to target.

All arrows offer the target an appropriate saving throw for ½ damage.
Even if nobody has any idea of the motives behind the creator of the Chromatic Bows, the church of Tiamat regards them as holy artifacts. Among the followers of the Five-Headed Queen they are known as Bows of Tiamat, and any of them will pay dearly and fight until dead in order to obtain one of them for the church an the honor of Tiamat.

Claymore of Freedom Invented by Hogan

The Claymore of Freedom is a huge unique steel-reinforced blade, enchanted by the best shamans among the highlanders to lead their people into freedom against their foreign oppressors.
The weapon itself is basically a +2 weapon, but when swung against persons of royalty, their loyal henchmen, soldiers or court-personal, the blade is regarded as a +4 sword, dealing justified damage to any oppressors of the common man (although the sword have no way of telling if it's a good or evil king who's blood it spills!).
As the blade was forced to contain the spirit of freedom, it will make its wielder immune to all kinds of magic that will oppress his personal freedom, like the spells of Hold Person, Web and similar, for as long as the sword is wielded. Spells already in effect before the sword was grasped however, are not affected. However, if the owner grasp the sword and says the word "Wallace", the name of the original lord for whom the Claymore was commissioned, all shackles, chains and similar, which are used to restrain the holder of the sword, included restraining spells already in effect, will open/dissolve and fall away, completely freeing him. This word, containing the spirit of freedom for which Wallace was recognized by his fellow Highlanders, can only be used once a day.

Cleric's Bane Invented by Corbien

Many years before you and I saw the first lights of the rising sun, a Dwarf named Tarks forged a mighty sword made for only one reason, slaying Elven Clerics! The Dwarves and the Elves warred against each other and the Dwarves had a major problem with slaying the Elven Priests´ cause they always protected themselves with magic and prayers, so the war took a great turn when one single dwarf (Tarks himself) walked straight into the middle of an Elvish ceremony and laid low the Elven High-Priest with one single blow. The war was later won by the Elves and Tarks killed in combat with Elven non-priests. But the Sword still exists, and is waiting.... waiting for the next warrior to pick it up..........
The sword is normally a standard +1 Long Sword. But when used against Elven Clerics it becomes a +3 sword, automatically dispelling the following spells when it comes within a 10 feet radius: Detect Evil, Know Alignment, Sanctuary, Barkskin and Meld Into Stone. Those of these spells that are beneficial to the wielder of the sword are not dispelled.

Crit the Sword Invented by Thainavel

Crit the Sword, or "The Hand of Halruaa", is by all appearances a normal Bastard Sword with no obvious signs of being a magical weapon.
When attacking with the sword, no attack roll shall ever be made, as the sword will automatically hit its opponent with a critical hit every time. A wizard of Halruaa will receive no penalties when using the sword, and will further be able to once a week to summon a Halruaa Sky Ship. One drawback are, that when equipped with this sword, the wearer will not be able to use or control other weapons in that round.
The sword itself was forged in the deepest secret by the evil High Wizard of Halruaa, CZin'th Akmare'zul in a secret hideout near the banks of the river Lhair. CZin'th wanted to take complete control of the world by transforming the power of five Pit Fiends into his staff, but the captured Deamons broke through CZin'ths circle of protection, while he was transferring their power to the staff. At the time he realized his mistake, only four of the Deamons where drained of energy. The last Deamon, a Pit Fiend called Slaarery, attacked CZin'th who feebleminded grabbed a nearby sword, striking Slaarery dead and causing the staff to explode, releasing an enormous amount of energy which killed CZin'th. But in that moment, the energy of the five Pit Fiends where united and obtained in the sword, which powers became wild and evil.
In open trade Crit the Sword will be worth at least 30.000 GP. But to a wizard from Halruaa, the sword would be worth twice as much.

Crossbow of Flames Invented by Hogan
(XP 4500, GP 20400)

The Crossbow of Flames is a Heavy Crossbow made from reinforced and strengthened cherry tree with reddish copper streamers along its sides, illustrating and depicting figures of flowing flames.
Any normal bolt that would fit into a Heavy Crossbow, can be cocked in a Crossbow of Flames, however, bolts carrying any kind of enchantment, will not gain any of the special benefits of the Crossbow.
Instantly, when a cocked bolt is fired, it will catch fire, leaving a blazing trail lingering in the air and dealing an additional 2 points of damage to the target, with the possibility of setting combustible materials ablaze.
10 times a day, the sentence "Let the flames strike…" can be uttered as the bolt is launched. This will transform the bolt into a flaming bolt with powers similar to a Flame Arrow, causing 1d6 plus an additional 4d6 of flaming damage to the target if hit. A to hit roll is still necessary.
Furthermore, the user can, once a day, by saying the line "And let the flames conquer…" as a bolt is being fired, have the bolt turned into a small ball of fire, exploding at the point of impact into an 8d6 Fireball.
Besides these spectacular powers, the Crossbow of Flames doesn't give any other bonuses, and can only be used by people normally allowed to make use of a Heavy Crossbow.
The art of making such crossbows has been lost for centuries, and those who still exist are highly priced, especially by defenders of critically positions, whom are know to wrack havoc among attackers with such a crossbow. Dwarves, despite the magical properties of the crossbow, are quite fond of its potential, and would pay dearly to obtain one of those.

Crusader's Mace Invented by Odwin "Odds" Bodkin
(2,000 XP)

This item is a shiny metal mace that has been blessed by a good or evil priest. The blessing bestows on the mace the alignment (good or evil only) of the priest that blessed it. When used by someone of the same alignment, the wielder can pray for one round and receive double the benefits of a Bless spell (including a 12-round duration). When used by a neutral character, the benefits are the same as a normal Bless spell, after which he must immediately make a saving throw to avoid changing alignment to that of the mace. Such a blessing can be obtained only once each day. If used by someone of the opposite alignment (good or evil only), he is automatically Cursed for the entire time he actually wields it in hand. In addition, the head of the mace glows with a faint yellow light when within 50' of creatures with the opposite alignment.

Cutlass of the Salted Seas Invented by Hogan
(XP 3400, GP 14500)

A sleek and elegant Cutlass with a silvery blade teinted with a blue shine, the sword is the envoy of sailors everywhere, and is primary found in the hands of admirals in the navy or experienced captains.
The swords primary enchantment is a +3 bonus and it deals double damage to creatures native to the watery element. Furthermore, a sailor (not necessary of that profession) who has the Cutlass in hand, automatically makes any dexterity checks which are caused by nautical movements or own moves aboard a sailing vessel. Also, as long as the sword is in hand, the user is affected by an effect similar to that of a Water Walking spell. However, both the latter mentioned effects expires as soon as the Cutlass leaves the wielders hand, to be reinstated when it is picked up again.
As the name might indicate, the sword is created in homage to the sailors of the high seas, therefore the powers of double damage only works against creatures thriving in salt water and the power of Water Walking is only possible when walking the salted waters of the seas.

Dagger of Domination Invented by Corbien

The Dagger of Domination is at first sight a normal +1 Dagger, but when rolling a natural 20 (1d20) on an attack, the Dagger will not cause a standard critical hit, but it will instead charm the person, monster or mammal as a Charm Person/Mammal or Charm Monster spell cast by a 10th level Wizard with no saving throw allowed. If the creature is normally hit only by weapons of +2 enchantments or higher, it will still be affected by the Daggers magic. Only creatures normally affected by the before mentioned spells are open to the Daggers power of charm.
The charm is in effect for as long as the appropriate spell would have been, with respect to the victim's intelligence.

Dagger of Magical Destruction Invented by Hogan
(1,100 XP)

This dagger is usually crafted with a silver blade and ivory handle, both made so there is no doubt that this is a magical instrument.
The Dagger of Magical Destruction is wielded as a +2 Dagger, but the real power of the dagger is such, that if its throw at a magical barrier, it instantly dispels that barrier at the cost of the daggers innate magical abilities, making it a normal but finely crafted dagger.
The barrier to be destroyed must be some kind of physical barrier that would normally stop a thrown dagger, hence a Wall of Fire or Wall of Wind cannot be destroyed, but a Wall of Force would. None magical walls or barriers can be destroyed, hence conjured Walls of Iron or Stone are considered as 'normal' walls.
Personal protections like Globe of Invulnerability and similar, need not to be physical in nature, and can be negated if the thrower of the dagger can identify the nature of protection. One layer of protection will be stripped by a successful hit, but at no cost to the daggers magical properties. Protection spells like Stoneskin or Barkskin are not considered barriers.

Daggers of Nevermissing Invented by Søren Surlykke

These daggers always come in pairs of two, usually with very expensive sheaths, but they don't look any special themselves. If somebody casts Detect Magic on them, a faint glow of enchantment is detectable.
The magic of these daggers does that they never miss if thrown, but they deliver no damage either. They are especially good for pinning people to a wall made of anything but solid steel ( Bend Bars/Lift Gates check to see if one gets free ), to knock that wand out of the evil mages hand, or just to win any dagger throwing contest in the land.

Dagger of Stealth Invented by Søren Surlykke

The first of these daggers was created by an Anurian priest of Eoéle, but since then his work has been duplicated by many others.
The dagger enhances the thief's backstab ability. He gains an additional multiplier, if he previously had a multiplier of x3, he now has a multiplier of x4. In addition it can cast Silence 3/day, Cat's Grace ( from Spells & Magic ) 2/day, and Invisibility once per day.

Darts of Encumbrance Invented by Odwin "Odds" Bodkin
(100 XP each)

These heavy lead-filled darts have small barbs on the tip, which makes removal difficult.
They give a +1 bonus to hit and damage rolls, and when they successfully hit their target, they also cause the effects of a Slow spell (movement rate is halved, AC and hit roll penalties, and dexterity bonuses are negated) until the dart is removed. Multiple hits, however, do not compound effect. Removing the darts causes one additional 1 point of damage. Their magic exists for only one throw, hit or miss.

Dart of Penetration Invented by Hogan
(500 XP)

This is a highly magical dart, fashioned from the mandibles of the rare Face Spider.
A Dart of Penetration normally functions and counts as a +2 dart, and can hit creatures only able to be hit by +2 weapons, but that's not it's main force! When thrown at an enemy, the dart is also able to penetrate all protection spells like Shield, Stoneskin, Barkskin etc. And all bonuses from magical armors, shields, rings, robes e.g. are also negated!
Only normal armor and dexterity bonuses count as protection against this dart.
Unfortunately, the dart looses all magical properties when it for the first time penetrates a magical protection and hits an opponent.

NOTE: About 7 % of all Darts of Penetration are also equipped with a small container which could contain a poison of one's own choice. The container is designed to break on impact, but can be replaced and used again, even if the dart has lost its magical properties and functions as a normal dart.

Dead Raiser Invented by Hogan

Dead Raiser is a weapon dating back to ancient times. It was first recorded in the hands of the warrior Brek' Te Dur as he emerged from the Shadow Desert with a large force of Zombies under his control, immediately attacking the borders of the desert-kingdom of Hierklan. After a series of bloody battles that only added to his army, he was finally bested in personal battle against the solar-warrior Paresha and the legions of Myranar. With his fall his undead army fell literally apart.
The powers of this unique black Khopesh +3 is such that any medium-sized humanoid being killed by it will automatically be raised again as a standard zombie under its killer's control. This dark raising takes place precisely 1 turn after killing blow was struck. Although an unlimited number of Zombies can be created under the sway of Dead Raiser, a maximum of 10 zombies can be created each day, as the sword's necromantic powers must have time to be replenished from its link to the negative material plane. Further kills made with the weapon will only produce normal corpses.
Should the creator of a horde of Zombies ever be slain, all zombies under his control will immediately be released and fall apart. The same will happen if the weapon ever loose physical contact with the wielder for more than 48 hours. This contact is extremely important because, only while in contact with the sword can control over the Zombies be enacted, else they just stand motionless.

Deathbringer Invented by Søren Surlykke

Deathbringer is a unique magical sword +1 with the intelligence of 14. He can communicate verbally and telepathically in common.
Whenever a foe is killed with this sword, the sword absorbs a piece of the foe's soul. This gives the sword a counter equal to the foes hit dice ( without plusses or minuses ). This piece is kept inside the sword (and it is the DM's job to keep check on the number of hit dices). For each 50 hit dices, the sword gets and additional +1 to hit and damage with a max of +10 ( +2 at 50 HD, +3 at 100 HD etc. ).
The sword can also heal the wielder at a rate of 1 hp per hit dice ( it cannot exceed normal max. ).
A disadvantage to the power of the sword is, that if the sword is ever totally drained of souls, it will kill its wielder ( only when no one is present ).
The souls are "eaten" by the sword at a rate of 1 hit dice per hour.
The wielder of the sword is always forced to try to kill nearby strangers if the sword is low on souls
( 24 hit dices or lower ) if he does not make a wisdom check or a willpower check if Players Options is in use.

Dorsmiger's Axe of Dwarven Foe Invented by Odwin "Odds" Bodkin
(1,000 XP)

This item appears to be an ornate but well-balanced, single-edged hand axe. It actually has +2 magical quality.
The axe is of good alignment and semi-intelligent such that it can sense when it is within 20 feet of Orcs, Half-Orcs, Goblins, Hobgoblins, Ogres, Ogre Magi, Trolls, Giants, and Titans. When such creatures are detected, the hand axe grows to become a double-edged battle-axe that can be wielded successfully with one hand (except by halflings) with or without the relevant weapon proficiency. When attacking or being attacked by these creatures, a non-Dwarven wielder gains the same benefits as a Dwarf would. The wielder's attack rolls gain +1 against Orcs, Half-Orcs, Goblins, and Hobgoblins. When Ogres, Ogre Magi, Trolls, Giants, and Titans attack the wielder, they must subtract 4 from their attack rolls. When the danger from such creatures has passed, the battle-axe returns to a hand axe +2.

Dueling Blades Invented by Hogan
(500 XP, 1200 GP)

A Dueling Blade is a blade made for a noble purpose, to let the nobles of the realm settle their differences with honor in combat, without the bloodshetting normally associated with such an event.
All known Dueling Blades where originally made in pairs, both swords forged to be exactly alike. There is a 25% chance when a Dueling Blade shows up, that is still paired with its twin, otherwise they have become separated over the years. The blades can come in any type of sword, though elegant weapons as Rapiers or Short Swords are preferred. They will always be of exceptional making and radiates magic if detected for.
A Dueling Blade has been enchanted to not cause any damage at all when striking at an opponent (Normally duels were settled by three "scores"). A hit can still cause a certain amount of pain, but not any real damage. Necessary to say; these weapons was never intended for real battle, but some have over the centuries become lost, only to show up in the hands of adventurers who whore their "magical blade" with pride... right until they entered their first battle!

Elf's Bane Invented by Søren Surlykke

This arrow, usually found in bundles of 2d4, is actually not very useful in the case of killing people. Instead it can be used for hitting anyone who are carrying a bow or crossbow, in this case the arrow will cut the string, instead of hitting the person, making the weapon useless until a round is used to string the bow anew. If used against a magical bow, the bow will get a save of 15 with any magical modifiers applying .
If used against a person with a bow on his back, the arrow will dig through the chest of abdomen of the victim, causing 2d8 points of damage, and possibly cutting the string.
If used against an opponent without a bow or crossbow, the arrow will cause damage as a sheaf arrow +1. Regardless of the way in which it is used, even if it doesn't hit, after a single shot, the arrow is regarded nonmagical.

Ethereal Blade Invented by Hogan
(XP 2700, GP 8900)

An Ethereal Blade is a planespanning +2 scimitar of which only its handle exists in the Prime Material Plane. Its blade, which on both planes can be seen as a shimmering field of force, reaches fully into the ethereal plane surrounding the prime.
As a weapon with such abilities the sword is able to fully damage creatures that exists in the Ethereal Plane, but still can be seen on the prime (like Ghosts). The sword also gives the user the ability to keep a creature in focus in up to 5 rounds after it has transferred fully into the ethereal plane (like Phase Spiders are known to do).
Due to its ethereal state, the blade cannot harm beings fully of the prime plane, although beings currently on the prime but naturally able to change to the ethereal (like Soul-Breeds and Phase Spiders) will take ½ damage if struck on the prime.
All attacks are made as if the sword's user himself was on the ethereal plane with regards to the creature's lower armor class and such. Also, the sword will never be reduced in power if being brought to the ethereal plane as other magical weapon does.

Fiery Dragonblade of Shaladar Invented by Johnny Bremer
(2,500 XP)

This is a large blade, almost the size of a two-handed sword, but can be used in one hand.
The blade has serrated edges and flame inscriptions upon the flat of the blade.
The handguard resembles dragonwings and a dragonhead is on the top of the blade. The end of the handle is enriched with a valuable sparkling ruby.
The sword functions as a magical two-handed sword +2, but if a proper command word is spoken, flames will spring from the blade and engulf whatever is in front of the sword at the time of use.
The flames will deliver 3d6 points of magical fire-damage. This function can be used five times per week.
When battling creatures with link to the elemental-plane of water, the blade functions as a magical sword +4.

Finder Keepers Invented by Hogan

This unique Long Sword was named by the notorious Dwarven Treasure-hunter, Bardrian Velvetcloak, who, as rumors point out, was very good at finding treasure in other people's possession. Who originally made the sword is not generally known, and Bardrian doesn't tell, as he finally found a victim who made a sharp point of telling that she didn't like to part with her possessions.
The "Finder" part of the sword, was named so by Bardrian due to its innate ability to Detect Treasure and lead him there. When commanded to, the sword will be able to locate the nearest hoard of valuables within a range of 100 yards and with a combined value of no less than 2500 gp. Only worked goods (coins, jewellery and such) will be detected, no natural vein and such are even noticed. By giving out vibrations, the sword will be able to guide its wielder directly to the hoard, although it goes in a direct line, so walls and such may be an obstacle. Should the sword be used for other purposes (fighting etc.), before the hoard is reached, another detection must be made, but the sword can only make one such for each 6 hours passed. Treasure that moves (being carried by somebody or something) will make the sword swing like a compass needle, continuing to give directions towards the treasure's current position.
The "Keepers" part of the swords name, was named such by Bardrian due to its +3 enchantment, which helped him to keep what the sword had just found for him.

Flaming Spear Invented by Hogan
(XP 1200, GP 4500)

A Flaming Spear is basically a warspear +2. When a command word is uttered (usually the Orcish word for fire), the point will burst into flames, dealing an additional 1d6 in damage against any successfully hit opponent. This fire damage is tripled against creatures especially vulnerable to fire.
The flames can be activated up to six times a day, and each time it will keep burning for 2 full turns unless the spear is commanded to extinguish them. Should the flames be forcefully extinguished (by dousing them in water or by a Dispel Magic), the flaming spear cannot be activated for 24 hours.
The glow caused by the flaming point will give of light like a burning torch.

The Gardener's Ward Invented by Hogan

Basically an untraditional weapon, this Sickle with a golden shin and a blade that never can be dulled, is as standard a +1 weapon, but when used against plants or plant-creatures, it counts as a +4 weapon, both with regard to attack, damage and speed. Furthermore, a successful hit against plants or plant-creature like Shambling Mound, Choke-Creeper, Yellow Musk, Treant etc., causes triple normal damage.
Also, one hit with the Sickle against magical animated plants (under the effect of an Entangle spell for example), causes the animating spell to be dispelled, unless the plants are under more direct control (like the trees controlled by a Treant).
Weapons like these were created in an unknown number by the Druids of Worldhaven Vale to be an important factor in their battles against the hellish mutated plant-creatures of the Olive Mage. The titanic battle that heralded the end of the war and the destruction of most of the vale, left most of the weapons lost of scattered around the known world.

Ghost Arrows Invented by Hogan
(XP 500, GP 2300)

Ghost Arrows are spectral and semi-transparent flight arrows, yet they are solid to the touch and can be handled and bundled like normal arrows.
The Ghost Arrows can be fired from any kind of bow, and once launched they will take on their true ghostly form and strike right through armor and shield alike and into the very essence of the target itself. Striking like thus, the arrow ignores all armor bonuses, only being stopped by magical bonuses or the dexterity of the target. When striking a living target, the arrow deals 1d6 in damage to the victim, but it also unleashes a short surge of negative energy which ages the victim by 1d3 years with none saving throw whatsoever allowed.
Ghost Arrows are rumored to originally have been the invention of the long-gone wizard known back then as the Ghost Mage, who also have been credited by the invention of the Ghost Bow. Sure something must speak in favor of this theory, because when a Ghost Arrow is fired from a Ghost Bow, the arrow gains a surge of spectral energy, giving it a +2 bonus to attack, letting it deal 1d8 in damage and aging a potential victim by 1d6 years.
Each Ghost Arrow is a one-use item. It can only deal damage to living creatures as its strike is delivered to the life-essence of that creature, hence undead creatures, golems and similar which cannot be said to be alive, is immune to the effects.

Ghost Bow Invented by Hogan
(XP 1500, GP 7400)

A Ghost Bow is developed from the stock or a standard Short Bow, but for an onlooker, the bow will look transparent and ghostly, and in bright sunlight the bow will be 60% invisible to anyone more than 10 yards away, but it will still be as solid as a normal bow. It was originally created and used by the Ghost Mage of Karlandor, who is said to still carry the original bow, although both he and the name of the bow is more fitting now!
Any normal arrow fired from a Ghost Bow will in mid-flight change into a semi-ethereal spectral arrow. This arrow will ignore any and all bonuses from armors the target might be equipped with, leaving only bonuses from Dexterity and any magical bonuses from equipment, spells etc. The arrow deal 1d8 in chilling damage to the target, and due to its spectral status, it will be able to damage to those creature normally only hitable by magical weapons, regardless of enchantment normally needed. Furthermore, the arrow can also hit those creatures partly in the ethereal plane.
Since the spectral arrow of the Ghost Bow damages the life-energy of the target, undead creatures, golems and similar which cannot be said to be alive, is immune to the effects.
Arrows which carry any kind of enchantment, can be fired normally from the bow, but gain no special bonuses. The exception to this is the Ghost Arrows whose powers will be enhanced if fired from a Ghost Bow.

Ghost Staff Invented by Hogan
(XP 3000, GP 15000)

A Ghost Staff is a Quarterstaff made from white aspenwood. Although it looks almost transparent to the naked eye, it is solid to the touch and can be felt by the unfortunate victim as good as a normal Quarterstaff coming in at full force.
The staff is enchanted with a +3 bonus, and when used as a weapon, its' ghostly abilities let it pass right through armors and shields alike, striking the naked skin of the opponent. Only magical bonuses from such protective items as armors and similar are considered when calculating armor class, that and of course the victims dexterity bonus!
Furthermore, any successful hit with the staff, ages the target 1d3 years.
The Ghost Staff is rumored to be the primary weapon of its inventor, the Ghost Mage, who, unlike most of his enemies, is rumored to never age and is presumed still at large somewhere, still carrying and using his original and more powerful Ghost Staff.

Golembane Invented by Hogan

The Golembane is a unique Short Sword containing powers able to unwrap the magic that is the elemental glue that holds together and animates a Golem.
The sword is basically a +1, but +3 against any form of magically constructed Golem. For each hit successfully struck against a Golem, the sword permanently unwraps a part of the magic build into its construction, making it loose one full HD (or a percentile of is total amount of hit points). This damage cannot be regenerated by any means short of a complete reconstruction of the Golem.
The sword was made for and carried by the ranger Savrao Stricebane who regarded creation and animating of a Golem as one of the greatest perversions of nature, even ranking it above the creation of Undead! After years, his battles finally brought him up against the Metal Mages of Silvarana and their creations. Nobody has since heard anything from neither him nor his sword… and from most of the Metal Mages for that matter!

Gram Invented by Søren Surlykke

Gram is a unique Longsword crafted of an unknown alloy by the Dwarven smith Belrag for king Helgar who was known to battle Goblins and other foul beasts.
Gram goes through stone and steel as easily as a hot knife through butter, so the only thing that betters an opponents AC, is Dexterity and magic, both spells and magical AC plusses. As if this isn't enough, Gram has a +3 to hit, +5 to hit vs. Goblinoids (Goblins, Orcs, Hobgoblins, Bugbears etc.).
As a result of Helgar not being willing or able to pay Belrag for Gram, Belrag cursed the sword, so that it wouldn't enter the sheet once it had been drawn unless it had tasted blood, and that it eventually would cause its owner his life. And so it came to be. Helgar showed the blade to his son, but when he tried to sheet it, it twisted in his hand, and his son died, Helgar himself died on the battlefield, killed by the goblin king, who stole Gram. Its current whereabouts are unknown.

Growing Blade Invented by Søren Surlykke

A Growing Blade is a dagger with a very special power. When its wearer is facing enemies with this dagger in his hand, it will grow to match the power of the enemy. Against Goblins and other monster with 1-3 HD (without plusses), it will perform as a normal dagger, but when facing monsters with greater HD, its special powers begin their work:

 1 HD- 3 HD	Normal Dagger
 4 HD- 6 HD	Dagger +1
 7 HD- 9 HD	Short Sword +2
10 HD-12 HD	Dagger +3
13 HD-15 HD	Long Sword +2
16 HD-18 HD	Bastard Sword +2
19 HD-21 HD	Short Sword +4
22 HD-24 HD	Long Sword +4
25 HD-27 HD	Two-handed Sword +2
28 HD-30 HD	Bastard Sword +4
31 HD-33 HD	Two-handed Sword +4
34 HD-		 Heavy Lance +3 *
* as if used on a charging mount, but the opponent doesn't get any benefits.

The HD value is based on the strongest among the enemies. If the wearer is battling 20 1 HD goblins and a 15th level mage, the sword will perform as a Short Sword +4, but two 10th level fighters will not make the weapon a Long Sword 4!
Whatever it's form, a growing blade is always light enough to be wielded in one hand, and has a weapon speed of 2 ( effective 0 in most forms because of the plusses). In addition to this growing power, a Growing Blade has a 60% chance of having an additional power, such as Quickness or the burning abilities of a Flametongue.
Whatever the form, one can use the weapon as if he has a proficiency in it, if one has proficiency in any weapon on the table above. With this weapon, a wizard who is proficienced in a Dagger, can wield the weapon.
If it is in the hands of a warrior, who is specialized in any of the above mentioned weapons, he is considered specialized only in the form he normally is specialized in. The same is true in the case of mastery, high mastery and grand mastery (if these rules are used).

Hammer of Bashing Invented by Hogan
(XP 1400, GP 4600)

A Hammer of Bashing is basically a +1 War Hammer, but when used against structures like doors, walls etc., it is considered a +3 weapon, dealing double damage when structural damage is determined.
Furthermore, for each successful hit against an opponent armored in Plate Mail, Field Plate of Full Plate, the hammer deals extra material damage to the armor itself, lowering its granted bonus to AC with 1 point. If the armor is magical, the first number of hits equal to its bonus is absorbed by the magical bindings, thereafter the hammer strikes home. A Plate Mail that lowers it wearer's AC with 7 points (from AC 10 to AC 3) can withstand 7 rounds of continually successful bashing before crumbling into pieces. Once reduced to zero granted bonus points, the armor is considered completely destroyed.

Hammer of Earthen Foe Invented by Hogan
(XP 1500, GP 6000)

These rare weapons seldom seen above the Night Below, are Warhammers with mithril-reinforced heads, adorned with runes of the Duergars, the Dark Dwarves.
Basically such a Warhammer is a +1 weapon, but against creatures of earth and stone, like Clay and Stone Golems, Galeb Duhr, Earth Elementals and others, mainly those from the Elemental Plane of Earth or the Quasi-Elemental Plane of Minerals, the warhammer functions as a +4 weapon.
The Hammers where originally forged by the Duegars for use against their Svirfneblin (Deep Gnomes) arch-enemies and their earthen allies. A large number where forged in ancient times, but few are left now, and fewer still are wielded in none-Duergar hands.

Hammer of Quaking Invented by Odwin "Odds" Bodkin
(1,500 XP)

This heavy war hammer +2 can only be wielded without penalty by those with strength of 13 or greater. Anyone with less than 13 strength is penalized on hit rolls by the difference in strength from 13 (e.g., Strength 10 would suffer a -3 penalty).
On command, the hammer can be struck against any solid rock surface causing it to quake and crack. If the hammer is struck on the ground, everyone within 50 feet, except the wielder, would need to make a Dexterity check to stay standing the next round.

Hell's Fury Invented by Hogan

This unique weapon is in itself a study in eerie and devilish craftsmanship, rumors also hints that the birth of the blade can be found in the furnaces of the nether hells! In appearance, Hell's Fury is a bastard sword with a black obsidian blade that seems to absorb light and never gives any reflection. The handle is silver and made in the shape of a snaring fiend, its horns carving out to form the guard.
The weapon was used by the notoriously Death Knight, Hellatione Darkmantle, who was rumored to have received it from the hands of one of the princes of hell as a reward for some unknown but surely dark service she once provided. With that in hand she was known to single-handedly have destroyed several adventuring groups and been a leading part in the dark ravaging of the frontier settlements of Heartvale during the Spellgate Wars, before she met her demise at the hands of the Monks of the Easter Order. The sword was placed under theirs confidence until stolen a few years back.
Hell's Fury is a heavy empowered sword that first of all bears a +4 enchantment and deals double damage to creatures of good alignment. Thrice a day it can also be commanded to blaze with a double strength Unholy Fire (reverse of the spell, Holy Fire) for 1 turn, doing an additional 2d4 in damage to creatures of good persuasion.
Furthermore this hellish blade emits an aura of evil such strong that good creatures that comes within a 20 feet range can directly feel it, and Paladins will feel a sting of pain as they approach the weapon. This aura serves to protect the wielder from magical effects that are tuned towards creatures of evil. Spells like Holy Bolt, Holy Fire, Holy Word and similar will have no effect whatsoever upon the wielder. Also, any undead carrier of the sword is turned as if the priest that turns was 4 levels lower.
Hell's Fury is a weapon of evil and can only be used by creatures of evil. Good creatures that merely touched the weapon, receives 1d8 in damage form its evil energies, and those daring enough to try an carry/wield it, will takes 2d8 in damage each round.

Heroic Battleblade Invented by Hogan

A Heroic Battleblade is indeed a magnificent blade, both in quality and potential. Five blades where originally created, and each one was wrought in shining steel, enchanted to never become dull or spotted (blood and other stains on the blade will seem to glow white for a moment, then disappear). The handle is made from dark ivory, studded with small emeralds, and the swordguard is created from the tusks from great hunting casts. Each sword is considered to be a Broad Sword, though of unique appearance.
The Heroic Battleblades were commissioned to be made aprox. 450 years ago, by the king of Savienhein to serve as the arms of his five most loyal warriors. The weapons served them and their king well in their time, but during the years most of them were lost or became scattered as the time took its toll on the small kingdom.
Each Heroic Battleblade is regarded as a +2 weapon at any times, except when the wearer will use it in an unheroic way, like attacking from behind or slaying an innocent person, then the blade will become dull, actually counting as a -3 sword for all purposes. On the other hand, if a blade is worn in battle against overwhelming odds or against foes, which might be too much for the user, the sword will perform as a +4 weapon, with regards to speed, attack and damage rolls.
Each round the user of the blade can forego his attack and instead choose to trigger one of the following spell-like powers by uttering the name of the blade (the blades were named: Urdin, Rayak, Ballisto, Thampion and Wallak. The names are etched with magical runes in the blade). The swords speed (2) is also what's used as casting time for the spell effects.

The wielder can also as an option, choose to let the sword deal double damage in a round. This it can do every second round, up to a maximum number of 10 times within a 12 hour period.

Holy Dagger Invented by Hogan
(XP 1700, GP 7900)

A Holy Dagger is a +2 dagger with an ivory-white blade and a silvery handle. Besides radiating magic, spells like Know Alignment, will also detect an aura of good alignment radiating from the dagger.
The Holy Dagger deals damage as any other +2 dagger, but when it scores a hit against an opponent, to whom holy water is damaging, the blade will seep a gush of holy water into the wound, dealing a further 3d4 in damage. This can be caused an infinite number of times, but the victim must be damaged by the initial attack for the gush to take effect.
Evil beings that handle a Holy Dagger, will not feel at a disadvantage, but when the holy water is released, the handle will cause a burning effect, dealing 1d6 in damage to the holder.
About 20% of these Daggers are Unholy Daggers. They have ebony-black blades, sprouts unholy water, radiates evil and deals damage to good creatures who triggers the daggers special power.

Holy Smither Invented by Hogan
(XP 500, GP 1700)

A Holy Smither is a basic, but quite sturdy +2 arrow, which is imbued with a powerful blessing that lets it deal double damage to any undead creature if successfully strike. Further more, when striking an undead creature that is not killed by the initial strike, the arrow automatically releases another effect on the creature, an effect much akin to the turning powers of a 12th level priest, having a chance of turning even special creatures. The release of the powers of turning destroys the arrow, but since the powers only is releases when striking an undead creature, this strong arrow can be used several times, each time only having an 18% chance of breaking with hitting or missing another target.

The Hydra Mace Invented by Hogan

Steel-headed and studded with genuine hydra-fangs, the unique Hydra Mace was first of all enchanted to be a Footman's Mace +3 with regards to attack and damage.
Once each turn, the mace can be held high and the Dwarven word for Hydra spoken. This will instantly cause the mace-head to go black, and 7 shadowy tendrils with a mace-shaped head in the end, to spring forth and strike at multiply targets within a 15-feet range, as determined by the wielder. The mace-heads strike and deal damage as a standard mace, but strike with the wielder basic Thac0. A maximum of 4 tendrils can attack any single target, and they are only active in the round they are called forth.

Knife of Detonation Invented by Hogan
(XP 900, GP 3600)

A Knife of Detonation is a plain steel-knife, whose every inch is decorated with tiny runes.
Basically the knife is a +1 weapon, but is considered +2 if used as a throwing weapon. The major force (and the name) lies in the fact that when a command word (can usually be deciphered from among the runes on the blade) is uttered, the knife will detonate in a violent explosion, dealing 3d8 points of damage to everyone within a 5 feet radius, and possible dealing structural damage as well, but that's up to the DM.
Everyone, not only the user, knowing the right command word, can trigger the knife at any time, provided they are within a 20 yards distance (by obviously reasons, every knife is created with a unique command word).

Kulutues "Merciless Destroyer" Invented by Bearhug

Kulutues was a Great Axe, which once belonged to a Mighty Half-Demon called Astaharoth. It was given to him just before the Time of Trouble by the God Bhaal. The purpose for this, was that Astaharoth was to revenge Bhaal, after what happened on the Moonshae Islands. Unfortunately, the Demon huntress Taki showed up, while Astaharoth was on his way to the Islands, and slew him… or she thought. In the end of the battle Taki pushed Astaharoth into a deep Creek. Taki then left Astaharoth for death with the words "Demon Defeated". No one knows where Astaharoth is now.
Kulutues itself is a heavy enchanted Great Axe, which has a +5 bonus to both attack and damage. Hence this weapon does 1d12+5 in damage to all opponents.
Furthermore, it is able to create an effect as the spell Call Lightning on every single opponent, when just a successful attack roll is made.
When equipped by a user, the Axe also bestows the following powers to its master:
+20 bonus to Hit Points
+3 to all saving throws
These bonuses will be in effect as long as the axe is actually carried. Should it be lost, all benefits immediately goes.
Kulutues is only useable by Fighters possessing a strength of at least 18/91-99.

Lasso of Holding Invented by Odwin "Odds" Bodkin
(500 XP)

This lasso is of +1 magic. It has a silvery texture and knots easily.
Any man-sized creature or smaller caught and tightened up in the lasso is paralyzed, as with a Hold spell, frozen in whatever position they were when the rope became taught. As long as minimal tension is maintained on the rope, the creature is held. If the rope is severed or released such that it goes completely slack, the creature is released.

Life-Drainer Scythe Invented by Hogan
(XP 5100, GP 24000)

A Scythe constructed from the bones of various creatures, with the blade fashioned from dark metal, the Life-Drainer in itself is a frightening sight.
The Scythe is considered a +2 weapon, dealing damage as the standard farming tool (1d6+1/1d8, weapons speed 8). Whenever the Scythe makes a successful hit, even against a creature that requires more than +1 weapons to hit, the Life-Drainer also drains 1 level from the recipient. Those levels can only be regained by accumulating experience or by use of the Restoration spell.
Users of the Life-Drainer should be aware of the dangers in its use. If the Scythe drains more than 10 levels any given day (24 hour period), there is a cumulative 10% chance for each level beyond the 10th, that the weapon will release its trapped energy in a flash of negative energy, dealing 1d8 in damage pr. level absorbed to its wielder. This energy release will not damage the Scythe, and more than one of these weapons have been found among the ashes of its previous owner.

Longbow, Piercer Invented by Mestoph

These magical bows are normally longbows. Sometimes (50%) they are composite (roll a random strength score to see which strength they are made for). Their enchantment, however, is altered to new potentials. Besides the +2 magical bonus these bows convey, they have the ability to bestow the abilities of a Javelin of Piercing to one arrow, fired from the bow, once a day.

Mace of the Balance Invented by Hogan

The Mace of the Balance is a unique Footman's Mace, crafted long ago to the honor of an unknown deity of neutrality by a priest with a very radical view on how to maintain the balance between good and evil.
Against creatures of good (chaotic or neutral) or evil (lawful or neutral) alignments, the mace is regarded as a +2 weapon, but against creatures of the radical alignments of lawful good or chaotic evil, it functions as a +4 weapon, further dealing triple damage against them.
Against those of the neutral (chaotic or lawful) alignments, the weapon functions as a standard mace, but when wielded against those of true neutrality, the mace will be unable to deal any damage, no matter how much force and skill is invested in the blow.
The might of neutrality comes with a price however. If more than ten creatures of one end of the scales of neutrality (good/evil) has been killed by the same wielder of the mace, without anyone from the opposite end of the scale having tasted the weapon, the weapons thirst for balance has been awakened and it will force the wielder to attack and destroy the next creature of that alignment it encounters. A saving throw vs. paralyzation will help the wielder to suppress that urge, but the mace will continue every time a creature of that alignment is encountered until such one is killed and the scales of balance is more at level with each other.

Mace of lightning Invented by Hogan

These mace where primarily made by the Priest's of Talos to bring destruction to their enemies.
A Mace of Lightning is a mace with a +2 enchantment. Furthermore, it is empowered with the destructive lightning strike of Talos. The following powers are only available to the followers of Talos, though everybody can use the mace with its +2 bonus.

The following power is only available to a specialist Priest of Talos.
Mageslayer Invented by Søren Surlykke

Mageslayers are daggers with a bonus ranging from +1 to +3, but that isn't their greatest ability.
Upon touch, a Mageslayer can temporally dispel any magical protection, be it a Shield spell, or a magical armor, although in the case of an armor, it will still function like a normal armor of the same type.
The only protection spell that the Mageslayer doesn't affect is a Wish spell cast with the sole purpose of protecting the individual.

Machete of the Explorer Invented by Søren Surlykke

Looking like a normal machete with an iron blade, and a wooden handle, this machete has some powers that could be quite helpful for adventures entering a jungle.
The machete not only cuts through plants so fast that people are not hindered by the foliage (no movement penalty), it is also a powerful weapon against plant-creatures (hangman tree, shambling mound etc.). Against such creatures it does a full 2d6+2/2d6+2 points of damage, against all other, the machete does normal 1d8/1d8 points of damage, against man-sized and larger than man-sized, respectively.

Mansbane Invented by Søren Surlykke

Mansbane is a unique Longbow crafted by an apprentice of Rhoubhe, Sidh, but after the first raid in which it was used, Sidh was never seen again, and no one knows where Mansbane is now.

Mansbane has the following powers:
Longbow +3
Arrows are given a +1 enchantment to hit and damage.
2 Magic Missiles 5/day*

* When the command word is spoken, a shimmering arrow appears on the bow, and in the air it splits into two, both hitting the same target it was intended to hit.

Martigan's Critical Arrow Invented by Hogan
(XP 900, GP 2400)

Originally created by an unknown mage, but named after a Half-Elven Ranger whose sure eye and steady bow often saved the day for her and members of her party.
A Critical Arrow is a one-use item that if it scores a hit, inflicts a critical wound upon the target (rolled on any available critical hit table. If none present, the DM decide the effect, but is should be no less than double damage). Should the arrow miss, it can be retrieved (provided it has not become lost in the surroundings) and can be used again.
The arrow in speaking is usually a sheaf arrow, though finally crafted in ways that marks it as an arrow of craftsmanship.

Master Blades Invented by Søren Surlykke

The Master Blades are "Normal" blades, enchanted to help end combat fast and easy for the wielder.
Not only are the blades enchanted to +3, they also have the following additional powers, all cast at 12th level ability:
Haste 3/day
First Strike* 3/day (only the wielder)
Called shots w/ no penalty 3/day

On all of the known planes, only the following Master Blades have been found:
3 daggers
1 two-handed sword
1 bastard sword
1 long sword

* Shortly, First Strike allows the wielder to automatically attain initiative for the following 1d4+12 rounds, unless fighting an opponent armed with a Shortsword of Quickness or similar magic. It does not, however affect spells.

Example:
Tyrus Bloodhart is fighting with a Bastard Sword, Masters Blade, and is facing a wizard in the middle of casting a spell. Wanting to disrupt the spell, Tyrus invokes the power of first strike, and automatically gains initiative, if he hits the wizard, the spell is disrupted as per standard rules.

Melf's Acid Bow Invented by Hogan
(XP 2200, GP 11200)

The original creator of this short bow has never been properly identified, but due to its magical powers much similar to those created and used by the acid-happy wizard Melf, the bow has been contributed to him.
As a bow, it can be used normally to fire standard arrows, but the archer will not gain any bonuses for this. Its major power lies in using it without arrows. If the string is drawn, a silvery arrow will appear, ready to be launched. Such an arrow can be created every second round and is in power remarkably similar to a Melf's Acid Arrow.
If the target is hit, the arrows initial acid damage will be 2d4 (there will only be allowed a saving throws vs. acid for items carried). Unless neutralized, the acid will keep on burning for the next 2 rounds, causing and additional 2d4 points of damage each round.
No special bonuses to attack rolls are gained from the use of the Acid Bow, but in return it is imbued with the ability to grant its wielder a temporary proficiency in the use of the short bow. Furthermore, as it must have been created and used by a wizard, the bow can also be used by wizards without penalties, regardless of levels of speciality and weapons normally allowed (although certain ethos might outlaw it).

Mercury Blade Invented By Søren Surlykke

This weapon looks normal but can be bent as one sees fit, and can be concealed under a belt or similar without any problems. In addition, if someone tries to parry the blade, they will not succeed, as the parrying weapon will pass through the Mercury Blade.
Anybody hit by the blade must make a save vs. poison with a -3 penalty, or suffer from mercury poisoning, taking 5 hp of damage each following day. This damage is only cured by magic or regeneration. This poisoning effect can only affect living opponents, and thus not undead creatures or magical constructs.
Creatures made of mercury actually gain 1d6 hp each time they are struck by the blade (not exceeding max. hp).

Missile Sling Invented by Hogan
(XP 500, GP 2600)

A Missile Sling looks like a standard sling, although of superior quality and enchanted so it never can be tarnished, broken or otherwise demolished.
The popularity of the sling lies in its ability to generate its own missile bullets as it is used, hence it needs not to be loaded as a single swing will create a missile lying ready to be fired. This auto-load ability improves the speed of the sling with 2 and consequently, the user will never run out of missiles.

The Ogre's Club Invented by Hogan

This unique weapon that looks like nothing else than a huge tree-trunk club. It was created by the powerful Ogre Mage, Burok Than, for his loyal Ogre Bodyguard. The weapon was over a decade used repeatedly in the defense of Burok, but it also carved a bloody path in the frontline against those humans who tried to stand in his way of carving out an empire for himself. But before his quest was completed, time and numerous enemies finally took its toll on Burok and his Ogres and they fell in battle against the barbarians of the Ice Cliffs. The Club was last seen in the hands of a mighty barbarian chieftain who keeps his reign in the Border Tundra of the White Realm.
The Ogre's Club is a mighty +4 weapon, magically strengthened to the hardness of steel, imperious to magic, weapons, weather and the ravages if time. It is considered double the size of a standard club, doing 2d6 in damage (2d3 against large creatures), but with the same weapon speed. Against humans the weapon does double its normal damage.
The Club can only be used by creatures of at least 18/00 in strength and of at least medium size. Only creatures of size L or larger can use the club as a one-handed weapon, for creatures of size M the weapon is considered a two-handed one.

Orc Biter Invented by Søren Surlykke

Orc Biter is a sword that does double damage when used against Orcs.
It is furthermore +3 to hit and damage (before the x2 damage against Orcs).
Whenever it is within 50 feet (15 m) of an Orc, it will glow with a light equal to a Faerie Fire spell.
All Orcs who see this glow knows what it stands for and get their moral reduced by 1 in every round the sword is used, and are forced to make an extra moral checks every round. If their morale ever drops below 1, they will die of panic and fear.
Orc Biter is an intelligent sword and is able to speak the following languages: Orc, Common and Goblin.

Orcglow Invented by Martigan & Hogan

Orcglow is a unique Elven-crafted short sword used in the great wars again the Orcish hordes from the mountains.
The sword is empowered with an enchantment that gives it +3 to attack and damage against Orcs and other Goblinoids. Otherwise it is just considered a normal +1 sword.
When Orcs or their goblinoid cousins (Goblins, Hobgoblins and Kobolds) comes within a 125 range of the sword, the sword will begin to glow blue, thereby warning its owner. As the Orcs come closer, the glow will intensify, and when the Orcs come within a range of 20 yards, it will be almost as if the sword is on blue fire! At this point, the wielder can, by swinging the sword above his head, create a burst of light that will blind every open-eyed being within 20 yards that is making use of infravision, for 2d4 rounds. After such a burst, the sword will return to a more normal glow and another burst is not available for 1 hour.
Rumours of the sword have been passed down through Orcish history, so there is a good chance that the sword will be noticed and recognized by Orcs. This will make them extremely weary about the swords wielder, but also possibly feeling extremely vengeful against her, especially if she is an Elf!

Poison Weapons Invented by Søren Surlykke

Poison Weapons are weapons, magically enchanted to produce poison a number of times per day.
The number of times is the same as the bonus to hit, and thus range from 1 to 5 times a day.
The poison produced is rolled on the table below:

1d12	Class	Strength
1-3	A	15/0
4-5	D	30/2-12
6	E	Death/20
7-8	I	30/15
9-10	O	Paralytic
11-12	P	Debilative
All poisons behave as in the DMG, but have an onset-time of immediate. Each production lasts 1d4+1 rounds, or until a successful attack has been made, whatever comes first.
The first of these items was made by a mage/thief assassin, who used the paralytic powers of his blades to ensure that his victims made no noise.
Note that an arrow version of this item exists, which only works once, hit or miss.

Ratcut Knife Invented by Hogan

This unique knife was created by a Gnome illusionist who hoped it could help him conquering his inborn fear of rats. It didn't quite work, but the Gnome's brother used it later on to seriously cripple the local Wererat population.
The Ratcut Knife is a gold inlaid Mithril knife +3, which on command has the power to cause fear in all normal rats within a 40 yards range, making them flee away from the holder as fast as possible for the next 10 rounds. This power is useable 5 times a day, but Giant Rats and other ratlike creatures are immune. But the knife also has other powers. When used in battle against Giant Rats, a successful hit will cause double damage, and against Wererats, it can cause triple damage!
Being a diminutive weapon in the eyes of many a fighter from the larger races, the knife is probably bow in the possession of either a Halfling or a Gnome, since Dwarves prefer more heavy weapons. But these "small" races have been known to put the knife to good use.

Redd Ramridge's Ram Hammer Invented by Odwin "Odds" Bodkin
(3,000 XP)

This weapon originally wielded by Redd Ramridge, Dwarven Champion, was the first of its kind. But since its creation, others have developed similar weapons.
The weapon is a war hammer with head shaped in the form of a ram, the horns spiraling around to the flats.
It is a Dwarven Thrower +3, but has been augmented with the power of a Ring of the Ram. It has a +3 bonus to attack and damage rolls, but in the hands of a Dwarven fighter, it has more power. A Dwarven fighter can hurl the hammer at targets up to 180 feet away and have it return to him at the end of the round it was thrown. 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). If thrown against a closed door, the hammer acts as a person with 18/00 Strength trying to break it down. If thrown at a normal object, a successful hit destroys it. If thrown at a magical object, the object is allowed a saving throw against crushing blow.

Reptile Trident Invented by Hogan
(XP 1800, GP 6500)

A Reptile Trident is basically a +1 trident made from strengthened bones from giants, but functions as a +3 weapons against all kinds of mammals, including Humans and most other Humanoids.
Besides being a magnificent melee weapon, the Trident can also be hurled as a spear with the same range, dealing normal damage, just to reappear in the caster's hand in the beginning of the next round.
The Tridents are mostly owned and used by the Lizard Kings of the waste Darkswallow Marshes, but some has found their way to the salted deeps where a few Sahuagin fighters has been seen carry them during their surface raidings with terrible results to the human defenders. Whoever created the original tridents are not known, although some sages thinks the blame points towards the Dragon-Mage of Halruan Mountains thousands of years ago, although none have dared ask the descendants if that's the truth.

Repulsing Halberd Invented by Hogan
(XP 1000, GP 6000)

A Repulsing Halberd is a well-crafted polearm. The weapon's blade carries a golden sheen that seems to twinkle once in a while. Such a Halberd is first of all strengthened with a +1 enchantment, but with the help of magic, it has also been made lighter and more comfortable to swing. Those who are proficient (having spend at least one weapon proficiency slot) in the use of Halberds will feel that they can benefit from a +4 bonus with regard to the weapon's speed.
The power that names the weapon comes from their ability to repulse their opponents. Should a person be hit with the weapon, he will, besides taking normal damage, be struck by a powerful repulsing force which hurls him 4d6 feet backwards. This force offers no chance of a saving throw and allows for further damage if the repulsed distance brings the target in contact with hard unmoving targets like walls etc. (treat the hurled distance as a fall of the same distance for calculating such damage).
The making of such a weapon is mainly commissioned by a king or queen and then they are mostly created in pairs. When created, they are given to the two most loyal and experienced guards, that are positioned as the personal bodyguards of royalty. They are a force to be reckoned with!

Rust Monster's Flail Invented by Bearhug

A Rust Monster's Flail has the appearance of a normal Footman's Flail, but the swinging metal rod is substituted with the specially prepared rubbery tentacle of Rust Monster.
The Flail has the normal properties of a Footman's Flail with respect to weight, speed and proficiency. Due to the rubber-like properties of the tentacle, the damage from the weapon is only 1d4 against all kinds of creatures. But like when it was still attached to the Rust Monster, the tentacle has other properties. Upon hitting an object made out of metal, the tentacle will cause the object to instantly rust away, effectively disintegrating it. To hit a special object, like a weapon in the hand of an opponent, a successful attack roll is needed. Armor worn is treated as AC 10, only counting dex-bonuses. Each hit on an armor (counting on the fact that most armor are made out of many different pieces), rusts away one point of protection, making it one AC worse. Magical metal-based items have a base chance of 10% per. plus of not being affected. Magical metal-things not imbued with plusses are treated as +2 items.

Scimitar of Flight Invented by Johnny Bremer
(3,000 XP)

This large scimitar appears to be a weapon from the south continent. It has a large shiny blade and a handle with decorations in gold and has an inlay of ruby gems. The scimitar has the ability to return to its wielder. When thrown, it spins around its own center and will cut anything in its path. It cannot harm its owner. In order to become owner of the scimitar, one must speak a sentence of words that awakens the magic within the weapon.

Scourge of Disease Invented by Odwin "Odds" Bodkin
(1,000 XP, only for evil characters)

This weapon can only be used by evil creatures (usually evil priests under an evil God of Disease, Pestilence or Death). It is typically made of black leather and rusty iron.
The scourge is +2 to hit and damage, and the target must make a saving throw against death magic or be infected with a horrid plague similar to mummy rot. Any good creature attempting to handle it automatically acquires the disease. The disease is non-contagious, but will kill creatures in 2d4 days unless a Cure Disease is cast.

Scythe of the Reaper Invented by Hogan

The Scythe of the Reaper is a unique and foreboding dark object closely resembling a normal farming tool. There are a few minor differences however. First of all, the staff is made from petrified wood, black as ivory. The blade itself is actually without substance and nothing less than dark matter in the shape of a Scythe. It is surrounded by a shimmering field of dark-blue force that flickers when the Scythe is used.
As the blade is a mere manifestation of the Death spell that's contained by a field of force, it will pass right through any material, ignoring armors and shields alike and only be hindered by magical enchantments and avoided by high dexterity. The Scythe is incapable of dealing normal damage, but each successful attack with this Scythe against a living target causes the target to make a save vs. death magic or be instantly slain. A successful saving throw leaves the victim with an icy sensation in the stomach and the feeling that someone just walked across its grave.
These life-taking powers of the Scythe are only effective when used in combination with an attack. Merely touching the blade gives no ill effects, although a deep cold can be felt spreading in ones stomach, creating a feeling of deep dread and sorrow.
With each successful hit with the Scythe, no matter if the victim makes it save or not, the user permanently looses 1 hit point. Hit points lost this way cannot be recovered by anything short of a Wish or by gaining in levels. It the Scythe's wielder looses his last remaining permanent hit point in the use of the Scythe, bringing hit HP Total down to 0, his life-force is drawn into the blade, making any Resurrection attempts impossible. Only by destroying the force that keeps the death blade in check, will the souls of previous owners of the Scythe be released, making a resurrection of the mortal remains possible. This however, completely destroys the Scythe in the process.
Whoever created the Scythe is something not known, as his mortal essence is probably absorbed by the Scythe long ago. Rumors contribute it to a dark necromancer from the first age of Harrowhale, more than 600 years ago. His obsession with the image of dead brought him on the brink of insanity and the creation of the Scythe.

Shadow Killer Invented by Johnny Bremer
(3,000 XP)

The Shadow Killer is a short-sword with a twist. It is curved, black and looks like it was meant to do evil. When used it will once per 5 uses try to twist the personality of the wielder toward evil. This can be avoided by making a saving throw vs. spell. If unsuccessful, the character shifts one step toward evil. Besides that, this weapon functions as a normal +1 magical weapon, but when striking against the opponent's shadow, it will function as a +3 magical weapon and will apply damage to the opponent as if the opponent was hit normally.

Shocking Lance invented by Hogan
(XP 1200, GP 5400)

A Shocking Lance is basically a Medium Lance +1, but the core is made from a cobber alloy.
The Lance can absorb and store up to 25 points of electrical damage directed against it or its wielder, the rest is channelled directly into the one wielding it. Further lighting attacks goes the same way, and will do so as long as the Lance is fully charged. The stored lightning can be spent by performing a mounted attack against an opponent. By doing so the opponents armor class is only bettered by dexterity, leather armor or magic, as the Lance will, if hitting, channel the stored lightning into the target, emptying the lance in the process, but leaving no room for a saving throw.
Charging the Lance can also be done by planting it upright in the ground, on the top of a hill during a thunderstorm. The chance is 1 in to 4 that a stray lightning will hit it and fully charge it. Better not touch it when this takes place!

Slavers Whip Invented by Søren Surlykke

It's looking like a normal whip, but upon closer examination, a Slavers Whip is revealed as made out of the skin of a sentient creature, such as a Dragon, Human, Orc or Mind-Flayer.
If the proper command word is spoken as the whip hits a creature of the same kind as the skin from which the whip is made, the creature gets a save vs. spells with a -4 modifier. If it doesn't make its save, it is charmed as if under the influence of a Charm Person or a Charm Monster spell.
Known Slavers Whips have been made to fit the following creatures: Elves, Dwarves, Gnomes, Halflings, Half-Elves, Humans, Dragons, Orcs, Ogres, Orogs, Goblins, Hobgoblins, Bugbears, Mind-Flayers, Vampires and Liches, but other types appear now and then.
Note : The creatures (such as Elves) with resistance against charms, doesn't get an resistance roll, though creatures with Magic Resistance (such as dragons) do.
A full 75% of the whips can also cast a Domination spell at no additional cost, in addition to the charm spell. Both effects must be saved against individually, and the Domination does not get any modifiers to the save, other than the standard for the Domination spell.
Each whip contains 19+1d6 charges, and if more than one charge is used at one time, both of the saves get an additional -2 penalty for each charge expended after the first. -2 at two charges, -4 at three charges, -6 at four charges, with a maximum penalty of -8 at five charges.

Sling of Giant Slaying Invented by Odwin "Odds" Bodkin
(500 XP)

This weapon uses stones or bullets, which leave the sling with magically enhanced speed.
Attacks are normally made with +2 bonus to hit and damage rolls, but against giant-sized creatures damage is doubled because they are larger targets allowing for more solid hits. In addition, a roll of natural 20 against a giant means the stone hit the giant square between the eyes, slaying it.

Spear of Location Invented by Hogan
(XP 600, GP 2700)

Originally created by a hedge wizard in far away hamlet in order to help the hamlets hunters to return safely home even after nightfall and during the worst snowstorms, other communities has taken up the creating of such spears.
Basically, the Spear bears a +1 enchantment, but if the spear is launched into the air, and the name of a location (a city, a common landmark or such, something which is known to the user) is pronounced aloud, the spear will stop its flight, hover in the air, and slowly turn in the specified direction. The spear will stay such for 2 rounds before it will return to its casters hand. At the time of pointing, the spear will emit a strong glow equal to a Light spell (this glow cannot be activated separately), which will allow everyone near to clearly see it and see by it. This glow will stay with it for 2 turns, probably lasting long enough to help the lost find his way.
The drawbacks to this item is that the wizard who made it didn't think about the fact that a glowing spear might cause some unwanted attention to its owner, and nobody has yet found a way to get rid of the little fact that using the Spear in areas with Wild Magic causes it to points its owner in a direction that can be very dangerous to his health, no matter where he intended to be led.
The location powers of the Spear can be activated up to three times a day.

Spear, Penetrator Invented by Mestoph

Used by the footmen armies of Myth Drannor, these spears are potent weapons. Their mythril blades and cherrywood shafts are of unspeakable quality. For game purposes, they are +4 magical spears, able to ignore any armor. Only dexterity and magical bonuses apply to the defender's AC.
The slim, perfectly formed spearhead penetrates the plates easily.

Spear of Range Invented by Hogan
(XP 800, GP 3200)

The powers of this weapon lie in the speed with which it can be hurled to plow through its target! When thrown it has a weapon speed of only 2 and is able to strike a target at thrice the standard range, in all three categories, for a similar spear of the same type. On the end of the round following the one in which it was cast, the spear will return to casters hand. If the hand is currently occupied, it falls to the ground where it appeared.
Besides these effects, the Spear has no potentials with regard to attack and damage, but it can be thrown by everyone who are able to use such a weapon as if they had the proficiency in its use.

Speedy Weapon Invented by Hogan
(XP 200 pr. minus, GP 900 pr. minus)

A Speedy Weapon can be a weapon of almost any kind and shape, although most of the known weapons seem to be edged ones.
The weapon will carry an enchantment that will allow it to be used faster than other normal weapons of the same type. The weapon speed factor will be reduced to with a number according to the following table:

01 - 50	Weapon speed -1	  
51 - 70	Weapon speed -2
71 - 85	Weapon speed -3
86 - 95	Weapon speed -4
96 - 00	Weapon speed -5
Under no circumstances can a weapon have a speed of less than 0. The sword is not considered magical with regard to hit and damage, so therefore a user will not be able to hit creatures normally hit only by magical weapons. The enchantments layered in the weapon are solely for the purpose of making the weapon strike faster.

Split-Arrows Invented by Hogan
(200 XP, 400 GP each)

These arrows was invented and created in order to make it possible for a few archers to fire a deadly hail of arrows and fending of much larger companies than their number normally should allow. These arrows are at basic +1 arrows, but when fired against a target they will, during mid-flight, suddenly split into several identical arrows. How many arrows a Split-Arrow split into when fired can be found at the following table:

D%
01-55 2 split
56-90 3 split
91-00 4 split

A 2-split arrow will for example split into 2 identical arrows, in which each arrow gets a separate attack roll. Fast archers with Split-Arrows at hand can launch a deadly volley few would believe.
Normally the arrows are created for use in times of war, and are therefore Sheaf-arrows. They are normally found in bundles of 1d8.

Stars of Lee'Juan Invented by Hogan
(XP 300, GP 1100)

These Throwing Stars, or Shuriken as they also are called in their oriental place of origin, was made by the famous Wu Jen after which they are named as a supplement to the deadly skills of the warrior-monks of the Dark Lotus.
The Shuriken are enchanted to strike against their intended target with a +2 bonus, dealing double standard damage (2d4) and disappear with a flash. Furthermore, the target is affected as if a Ray of Enfeeblement was cast, with a saving throw to avoid the effect. If more stars strike the same target in the same round, a saving throw is allowed to ward of the enfeebling powers of each star. Stars that doesn't hit has a changed of being retrieved again later on.
Normally 2d8 stars are found, all marked with the Star-Eyed sign of Lee'Juan, no matter who the creator was.

Sunblade Invented by Søren Surlykke

Sunblade is a unique Crystal Longsword +3 with a Continual Light spell cast at the tip. The brightness of the light can be controlled by its wielder.
Sunblade is intelligent, and will only accept good aligned masters. It uses its power to divine this. The dwarf Tang created this sword from a strange crystal. All that is known of the crystal is that it is sentient, and it has since gained the name of "Moradins blessing".

Sunblade has the following powers:
Intelligent weapon with an Intelligence of 17
+3 to hit and damage.
Turn Light-affected (Wraiths, Vampires etc.) undead as 8th level priest
Detect good/evil, 3/day
Detect law/chaos, 3/day
Saves as metal +5

Sword of Gleaming Invented by Wes Contreras

This blade, whenever held by a living creature, will always reflect all light in the area, making the blade gleam brightly. It is not bright enough to blind creatures, or otherwise harm anything, but it is plainly visible to anyone in the area, as long as there is at least the equivalent of moonlight available to be reflected. This radiates a faint aura of alteration.

Sword of Light Invented by Hogan
(800 XP)

A Sword of Light is a standard Long Sword +1, imbued with the power of a Light spell. Upon a silent command, the sword's wielder can activate the sword's light-giving effects, letting the sword itself shine with the power of the Light spell, illuminating a 20 feet radius globe, and having all the effects of the spell.
The light of the sword can be activated at will, and will shine until extinguished by another silent command, by a Dispel Magic, or by a Darkness-spell, centered on the sword. Once shut down, 6 hours must pass before the sword can be lightened again.

Sword of Watery Parting Invented by Hogan

A magnificent unique Bastard Sword wrought in cold iron and inlaid with silvery runes. Its' handle is fashioned of horn from a great narwhale.
The Sword of Watery Parting is of a +2 enchantment, but scores double damage against creatures from the Elemental Plane of Water (Water Elementals, Water Weirds, Tritons etc.), due to its parting effect. The Weapons' main power is its ability to directly part the water in front of the user.
By grabbing the sword in a two-handed grip and then strike down in the water, all awhile shouting the word for "Cleave" in the language of the Tritons, a massive wave of force will surge forward from the point where the sword hit the water. This wave will effectively create a safe passage through any body of water. The size of the passage depends upon the strength of the user. Each point of strength equals a passage 20 yards long, 5 yards wide and 2 feet deep. Though a Fighter with 17 in strength could create a passage 340 yards long, 85 yards wide and 34 feet deep. If the body of water is deeper than the parted area, the "bottom" will then as the surface in all aspects.
The walls of the passage can be reached through from both sides, as it only is like a thin veil. Ships and swimmers face the risk of capsizing or falling down when they pass the edge, suffering damage from the fall. The passage will stay open for 10 rounds, then it will close again, causing the water to rush in, dealing additional damage to every creature caught in the flood.
In order to use this power of the sword, the user must stands with both feet firmly on the ground, and must be able to reach the surface of the water. It is therefor not possible to use it while swimming, being underwater of likewise.

Thampion's Honor Invented by Hogan

Thampion's Honor is a unique silvery Sabre, made from an alloy of steel and adamantine. It was created not so long ago by a gifted Enchanter as a tribute the Husar Thampion, a dear friend, as he retired from an adventuring life where he had done so much good. The sword was designed to be all what Thampion was in his career, so as his legacy would continue in the ages to come and him never to be forgotten by those who would miss him.
The Sabre itself is made to be a +3 weapon that deals double damage to undersea creatures, as well as priests and clerics of the Gods of Talos and Umberlee, honoring his enmity against those. Every third round the user can, by foregoing any other attack in that round, make a swing with the blade in a none-attacking arc. This will cause 3 Magic Missiles (as per the spell) to burst from the blade as is passes through the arc, striking a single specified target within a 30 yards range.
Furthermore, if used to perform a Disarm maneuver on an opponent, the sword will give a +2 bonus to any such.
The Sabre comes with a golden scabbard adorned with small pictograms depicting roses and the waves of the seas entwined. As long as the scabbard is attached to the holder of the sword, his charisma will be considered to be two points higher by members of the opposite sex. It also allows the wearer to once a day cast a Friends spell as if he was a wizard of the same level.
Sword and scabbard can never be separated, and as long as Thampion's Honor is carried and used, the scabbard must be found at the wielder's hips where it will accept no other blade than the one is was made for.
Although the sword possesses no intelligence, it will only accept users of good alignment. Evil or neutral users will find it to slippery to even get a hold on.

Vampire Ore Invented by Thainavel

This +2 Scimitar is a must, especially for Necromancers, but foremost vampires.
Every time it is used to successfully strike the opponent, the user receives healing to his wounds. The strike will cure 1d6 hit points, though never more hit points can be received than the users normal amount, and no more hit points than the opponent currently possesses.
If the weapon is used often enough, it will keep its user forever young and beautiful, raising his/hers charisma to 16.
Both Necromancers and Vampires can use this weapon without penalties. With the weapon in hand, vampires won't have to bite the unclean necks of people to gain energy, knowing the fact that their victim's life energy will be drained directly from them to the Vampire's body through the sword. Of course it wouldn't be as tasty as the real thing.
If the Vampire Ore should ever be sold, the value would be set to approximately 20.000 gp.
This sword was supposed to be a gift to the undead Lord Naschnafnikall from the High Lord Manshon himself. Naschnafnikall was leading an attacking horde of undeads, covering an area at the size of 50 square miles. It consisted of over 60.000 undead creatures; Vampires, Skeletons, Liches, Dragonliches, Archliches, Skeleton Warriors, Ghosts, Banshees, Death Knights, and even an Undead Beholder. The goal of all these horrors was to destroy all things living in Icewind Dale, making it a base and ally for the Zhentarim in the northern highland. But a group of brave adventures prevented partly the plan to succeed.

Warquaker Invented by Hogan
(XP 1900, GP 7400)

A Warquaker is a massive two-handed Warhammer. It's existence is little known as its owners sooner or later tend to disappear, along with the weapon, beneath tons of rock.
Gripping the Hammer in a firm grip and smashing it into the ground while yelling the name of the Dwarven god Moradin, causes a small earthquake, centered upon the point where the hammer struck. The earthquake has the same effects as the spell of the same name. It lasts for a single round but affects everything within a 150 ft. diameter.
The powers to cause and earthquake is only useable once a day, but no special protection against its' effects is granted to neither the user nor his friends, so careful swinging is advised.
The hammer itself is considered a +2 weapon, but its ability to quake the earth also makes it very useful against Earth Elementals, against which it deals double damage.

Waterblade of Fire Annihilation
-(Long Sword +1, +3 vs. Fire-Elemental) Invented by Johnny Bremer

(3,000 XP)

This sword resembles other long-swords except that this sword is seemingly made of water.
The sword functions as a normal +1 magical weapon, but if used against fire-elementals, the sword will function as a +3 magical weapon. The sword is indestructible in the sense, that if ever broken, it will assemble itself within one round.
The sword feels cold, but not wet. It is transparent, but it looks as if water moves within the sword itself.

Werestiletto Invented by Johnny Bremer
(1,000 XP)

This silver stiletto was created by a wizard that was unlucky enough to witness his sister become a were-beast. He decided, after she had begged him, to end her life.
But this had to be done while she was in the were-state, so due to his lacking abilities to fight, he made this weapon, which if able to strike a single hit, would kill his sister and thereby relieving her of the curse she had been put through. The wizard chose to let the stiletto remain in the body of his sister when he buried her. As of this day nobody know whether it remains there or if it has been looted by graverobbers.

Whip of Constriction Invented by Odwin "Odds" Bodkin
(1,000 XP)

This whip is +2 to hit, but as with any whip can but used to simply entangle the target.
After successfully entangling the target, the whip can, on command, begin to slowly constrict the target without using no more of the whip's length. The constriction continues unless the whip leaves the wielder's hand or is severed in some way. The constriction also stops on command, as does loosening.
This whip is very useful for attempting to keep someone leashed or simply tighten up on a tree limb to swing across a pit. However, if a successful called shot to entangle a target's neck is made, a command to constrict will begin to strangle the victim. The victim can make a strength check each round to attempt pulling the whip from around its neck. If after three rounds, the whip is not off, the victim passes out. If the whip is not loosened in another two rounds, the victim dies of strangulation. A Dispel Magic spell cast on the whip will stop the constriction as it dispels all magic power from it.

Whip of Dismembering Invented by Hogan
(XP 8000, GP 30000)

This whip made from dark leather tanned with the tooth of a shark, is perhaps one of the most deadly weapon in the hands of one who has a proficiency in the use of such a weapon.
Besides all the usually tricks an owner can make with such a weapon, the Whip of Dismembering has powers very similar that of a Sword of Sharpness and a Vorpal Sword. It is considered a +3 weapon, and with a sufficient high enough natural roll, it can dismember an opponent. A member (arm, leg, head, tail, tentacle etc., each given an equal chance) is severed if a roll is made as following:

Kind of opponent	Natural roll (unmodified)
Normal/Armored		17 - 20	
Larger than man-sized	18 - 20
Solid metal or stone	19 - 20
Not that the spell of Stoneskin will protect against such a dismembering caused by this whip.
The first of these Whips, and so far the only known in detail, was created by an obscure cult known as the Midnight Lashers. They became known for their notorious killings, leaving the victims in pieces, but in the end they fell victim themselves to a rival cult and not a trace of them were ever found. Their original, however, were also lost, but the design lives on.

Whip of Thundercracking Invented by Odwin "Odds" Bodkin
(1,000 XP)

This 30-foot whip is a whip +2 usually made primarily of leather but has some fine metal strands braided into it. On a roll of natural 20 to hit (not entangle), it emits a small lightning strike and thunderclap at the very end. An intended target is automatically stunned and suffers 2d6 of electrical damage, both with no saving throw. Anyone else within 20' may also be affected by the pressure wave and electrical discharge, especially if they are wearing metal armor. They are allowed a saving throw vs. paralysis to avoid the stun and halve the electrical damage. Anyone wearing metal armor suffers a -4 to the saving throw. The wielder can also be affected if he cracks the whip is within 20 feet of himself.

Witchblade Invented by Hogan
(XP 3400, GP 9900)

A Witchblade is a Bastard Sword +3 equipped with a blade of magically enspelled stainless steel, a red-dyed metal handle and a guard piece shaped like the fangs of a Hell Hound.
Every times the sword draws blood from a victim, there is a chance will be affected by a Witch's Curse (the reverse of the 4th level Remove Curse-spell) that causes a random effect according to the following table:

01-50 One random ability is lowered to 3
57-75 Subject's attack toll and saving throws are worsened by -4
76-00 The Subject is 50% likely per turn to drop anything hold (or to stand still confused if carrying nothing)

The chance for being affected is equal to 1% for each point of damage taken. The chance is cumulative with further damage taken, and not before 24 hours has passed after damage was taken the last time, are the cumulative chance nullified. Once the curse has taken effect, the chance is put to zero, and the possibility of further and cumulative curses might grab hold.
Any curses afflicted are permanent unless removed by a Remove Curse spell or similar.
The original Witchblades were created by two Witches of Rashemeen, for use by the Berserker defenders of the land against the continuously invasions from the Red wizards of Thay. They actually did their work so good, that others started tampering with the design, achieving similar but no so powerful results over the years.

Wizard-Poker Invented by Hogan
(XP 1600, GP 7700)

A Wizard-Poker is generally nothing more than a sharpened stick, although the stick is one taken from an aspen tree hit by lightning that had been growing in a magic-dead area. This makes it perhaps a trifle more rare than most sticks.
The powers of the poker is such that if it is used in melee against a creature with wizardly skills (relying on learned memorized spells and not innate abilities and such), who are capable of being interrupted in his casting, the poker can be used as a weapon that always gain initiative. Although the poker is only able to deal one point of damage, it is considered a +5 weapon when used against the abovementioned spellcasters. Due to its nature and enchantments, it is able to strike through personal protection spells like Armor and Stoneskin as if they were not there. External protection spells like Shield and similar are however still counted in the recipient's armor class.
Against all other opponents the poker is just considered a normal none magical stick, but perfect for roasting weenies.

Woodcutters Delight Invented by Hogan
(XP 1200, GP 4900)

From the inventors of the Saw of Mighty Cutting, another but less known creation, came. Woodcutter's Delight is a woodcutter's axe (dam 1d6/1d6, speed 7) that are able to fell trees faster than you should think possible, as it will be able to cut through 3 cubit feet of wood each round, felling smaller trees in a single round, and ancient oak-trees in a matter of minutes.
The axe also acts (although not intended by its creators) as a +3 weapon against sentient plant-creatures like Treants, Shambling Mound etc.
Naturally, Druids feel a certain antipathy against this tool of civilization and strives to get them out of the system (destroyed) as peacefully as possible. This is hindered by the fact that owners of lumbermills continually hire Enchanters to create more of these items as the expenses for the creation is covered by the earnings the axe can provide in no time.
