    - About this FAQ
    - Weapon and armor tables
    - Item list
    - Revision history
    - Final words
    This FAQ was started on 3 September 2001. I had previously done a similar
    item guide for Might & Magic 6. While I had been planning to do the same
    for Might & Magic 7, I was unable to because Might & Magic 7 doesn't
    appreciate taskswitching. This made making screenshots of items very
    difficult indeed. Recently, however, I downloaded Hypersnap DX, a tool
    used to help in the making of screenshots, making this a viable project.
    (To anyone who's interested, Hypersnap DX has a shareware version that can be
    found at www.download.com.)
    The bulk of the FAQ is divided into two parts. First, I list all weapons
    and armor in tables. These tables are meant to help you find the
    statistics of a particular item quickly. The second part of the FAQ is
    a complete item list, which has other items besides weapons and
    armor, and includes descriptions of each item. Although the information
    given here is more complete, it's also harder to look up a particular
    item here.
    This guide will not help you much in completing Might & Magic 7 and is
    not intended as such. It is aimed at those people who are interested in
    what items are available, which ones they may have missed during play, or
    those who, like me, just enjoy browsing through lists like these. Whatever
    category you fall in, I hope you'll enjoy the FAQ!
    The ASCII art header of this FAQ was created with the help of Figlet
    Here I have sorted all listed weapons and armor in tables for easy
    reference. Artifacts are indicated with a * behind the item's name.

    Bronze Shield            Small Shield      +6                200
    This list will contain all items in the game, except for quest items.
    Weapons, armor and miscellaneous items are are listed, complete with
    I've sorted all items by type. Within each category, I have sorted the
    items by value rather than alphabetically. For example, in the category
    Gauntlets, the basic Gauntlet comes first, followed by one that is
    slightly stronger (Steel Gauntlets), and so forth.
    Values are based on basic, non-enchanted items. Descriptions are directly
    from the game. Occasionally, you may find an "Editor's note". These are
    comments I added myself, usually correcting or elaborating on the
    information the game supplies about a particular item.
    If a value is said to be 'unverified', that means I have never found an
    unenchanted item of this type, so I could not determine the base value
    (although in some cases, I did my best guess based on the values of
    similar items). If an artifact's location is said to be unverified, that
    means I have only found that artifact once in that spot, so I can't be
    sure if it is always there (many artifacts turn up randomly).
    -      AMULET      -
    You can equip one amulet on every character. Normal amulets do
    nothing, but many are enchanted in one way or another. Those that
    aren't can still be sold for a good price.
    Value: 500
    This strange amulet has a glass eye on the end of a cheap brass chain. A
    novelty, but probably not worth much.
    Value: 750
    A baroque bronze amulet with an ill define image stamped on the face.
    Cheap, and tasteless.
    (Editor's note: the first of many typos in the description of items ingame.
    "ill define" should be "ill defined".)
    Value: 1250
    Straight out of Deyja, this is just the sort of thing you would expect from
    Necromancers. The silver skull in the center is modeled from a real,
    shrunken skull, and the tiny rubies in the eyes glow in the dark.
    Value: 1500
    A glorious gold amulet with the ancient symbol of the sun in the center.
    The amulet is from Karigor, and the craftsmanship is flawless.
    -       AXES       -
    All one-handed axes fall into this category. They may be wielded by
    any character with the Axe skill.
    Attack: +0
    Damage: 4d2 (4-8)
    Value: 30
    This primitive axe is more like a simple tool than a weapon.
    Attack: +2
    Damage: 4d2+2 (6-10)
    Value: 100
    The flared edge of the blade is a common style used by low budget human
    armies and bandits.
    Attack: +5
    Damage: 4d2+5 (9-13)
    Value: 250
    Typical Dwarven manufacture: Strong, practical, and plain.
    -      BELTS       -
    Every character can equip one belt. Normal belts do nothing, but
    they may carry enchantments.
    Value: 40
    A peasant's belt. This one is made of poorly cured leather and rusting iron
    -      BOOTS       -
    Every character can equip a pair of boots. Boots count as armor and
    add to the character's armor class.
    Armor: +2
    Value: 50
    These boots are made of soft leather for a more comfortable fit, but they
    offer little protection in combat.
    Armor: +6
    Value: unverified
    This pair of leather boots has been fitted with steel plates on the top of
    the foot and at the shin.
    -    BROADSWORDS   -
    Broadswords are one of the many kinds of swords that fall under the
    Sword category. Any character with Sword skill may wield these
    one-handed weapons. They tend to be the strongest of all one-handed
    sword types.
    Attack: +0
    Damage: 3d4 (3-12)
    Value: 100
    A polished broadsword commonly used by all forces in Erathia.
    -    CHAIN MAIL    -
    Chain Mail can be worn by any character with the Chain skill. It is
    the 'medium class' armor of the game - stronger and heavier than leather,
    and weaker and lighter than plate.
    Armor: +8
    Value: 400
    Chain mail is an armor formed of small, interlocking loops of metal. It
    looks like someone forgot to oil the rings, or maybe left it out in the
    rain because rust has begun to form in the armpits and under the collars.
    Armor: +12
    Value: 600
    This suit of chain mail is made of steel and is actually lighter than
    similar suits made of plain iron. Thin rings were used in its construction,
    but the steel composition makes them very strong.
    Armor: +18
    Value: 900
    Very high quality steel is reinforced with studded leather to soften blows
    while minimizing weight. The leather portions are quite artistic and
    pleasing to the eye.
    -      CLOAKS      -
    Every character can equip a cloak. Cloaks add to the wearer's armor
    Armor: +1
    Value: 50
    A simple traveller's cloak.
    Armor: +3
    Value: 150
    A huntsman's cloak colored green to make the wearer difficult to see in the
    forest. Not much to look at, but it serves its purpose.
    Armor: +5
    Value: 250
    Woven from plant fibers found in the Tularean Forest, these cloaks are the
    traditional garb of the Elven Rangers.
    -      CLUBS       -
    Clubs are generally weak weapons that do not need any weapon skill.
    Any character can wield a club. However, this also means that there
    is no way to improve your skill with a club.
    (Note: Mace skill might count towards clubs as well, but I'm not sure
    about this. At any rate, you can use a club even without any Mace
    Attack: +0
    Damage: 1d3 (1-3)
    Value: 1
    A primitive weapon usable by even the stupidest of monsters. This club is
    constructed of Erathian oak.
    Attack: +3
    Damage: 1d3+3 (4-6)
    Value: 40
    An improvement over the simple club, this spiked club will inflict nastier
    -    CROSSBOWS     -
    Crossbows are ranged weapons that can be used by any character with the
    Bow skill. They tend to be weaker than Longbows.
    Shoot: +0
    Damage: 4d2 (4-8)
    Value: 50
    Although crossbows have many advantages - locking string catches, superior
    shot strength, easy to learn - they don't compare to the longbow when speed
    and range are critical.
    Shoot: +3
    Damage: 4d2+3 (7-11)
    Value: 200
    These crossbows were stockpiled by Archibald just prior to the Succession
    War for use against his brother. As with most decisions involving death,
    Archibald chose wisely. These crossbows are amongst the best in the land.
    -      CROWNS      -
    Crowns can be worn instead of Helms. They do not offer any armor class
    bonus, but are commonly enchanted. Especially the expensive crowns can
    carry powerful enchantments. Unenchanted crowns can still fetch a good
    Value: 250
    This is a cheap crown of the sort that primitive goblins wear to mock
    human customs. The metal is bronze, and the gem is made of glass.
    Value: unverified
    A fine, if somewhat ostentatious crown made with gold leaf and large, high
    quality amythests. It suits nobles of your station well.
    (Editor's note: at least they misspell amethyst consistently.)
    -    CUTLASSES     -
    Cutlasses count as Swords, and can be wielded by anyone with the Sword
    skill. They are, however, the weakest sword type.
    Attack: +0
    Damage: 2d4 (2-8)
    Value: 40
    The swept-back style of the cutlass helpsopponents underestimate the
    weapon's true reach. Many unexperienced swordsmen have lost their lives to
    this deceptive design.
    -     DAGGERS      -
    Daggers are weapons with little punch, but high speed. A skilled
    fighter can attack more often with a Dagger than a Sword or Axe, and
    as such, do similar damage over the same period of time. Daggers may
    be used by anyone with the Dagger skill, but are especially favoured
    by Thieves.
    Attack: +0
    Damage: 2d2 (2-4)
    Value: 8
    A crude dagger found in the hands of thieves and ruffians everywhere.
    Attack: +2
    Damage: 2d2+2 (4-6)
    Value: 100
    More like a short sword to a dwarf, this dagger is an excellent example of
    superior dwarven engineering and inferior artistic creativity.
    -    GAUNTLETS     -
    Gauntlets are protective metal gloves. Every character can equip
    one pair of these to boost their armor class, and take advantage
    of any enchantments.
    Armor: +3
    Value: 100
    Low quality iron gauntlets with cloth linings to prevent blisters.
    Armor: +6
    Value: 250
    This pair of gauntlets is made of steel and decorated with brass tracery
    along the outside of the palm and back of the hand. It is in good repair
    and well oiled.
    Armor: +8
    Value: 450
    A marvelous achievement, these gauntlets were forged and woven by the
    Dwarves of Stone City. The offer both flexibility and strong protection.
    The only trouble is that the wearer's skin is sometimes caught in the mesh,
    leading to painful pinches.
    (Editor's note: another typo. 'The offer' should be 'They offer'.)
    Armor: +10
    Value: unverified
    A high quality gauntlet, it offers both flexibility and protection. The
    joints are reinforced, yet are 'soft' enough to permit nearly normal hand
    -       GEMS       -
    Gemstones may sometimes be found in chests or on the bodies of
    certain monsters. They serve no purpose, and are purely intended to
    be sold.
    Editor's note: some sloppiness is apparent in the description of gemstones
    in-game, as 'magical' is misspelled as 'magial' in every one of them.
    Value: 250
    A gemstone. It has no magial benefit, so you may as well sell it.
    Value: 500
    A gemstone. It has no magial benefit, so you may as well sell it.
    Value: 750
    A gemstone. It has no magial benefit, so you may as well sell it.
    Value: 1250
    A gemstone. It has no magial benefit, so you may as well sell it.
    Value: 1500
    A gemstone. It has no magial benefit, so you may as well sell it.
    Value: 1750
    A gemstone. It has no magial benefit, so you may as well sell it.
    (Editor's note: Might & Magic 7 has a lot of spelling errors in its
    item descriptions, but this one takes the cake. The real name for this
    kind of gem is "Amethyst", yet the game refers to it as "Amythest".)
    Value: 2000
    A gemstone. It has no magial benefit, so you may as well sell it.
    -     HALBERDS     -
    Halbers are the most powerful weapon type in the Spear category. It
    takes Spear skill to wield them. Axe skill, despite what some of
    the Halberds' descriptions imply, does not allow you to wield
    Halbers, nor does it increase their effectiveness in any way.
    Attack: +0
    Damage: 3d6 (3-18)
    Value: 200
    Like all Halberds, this weapon is basically an axe with a very long haft.
    It's a versatile weapon - doubling as a spear when fighting room is tight,
    or a staff when personal defense is needed. This one is of ordinary
    worksmanship and materials.
    Attack: +4
    Damage: 3d6+4 (7-22)
    Value: 400
    The haft of this halberd has been cored, and filled with a lead rod. When
    the weapon is swung, the lead rod slides to the blade end of the halberd
    with a loud crack, adding force and weight tot he blow.
    -     HAMMERS      -
    Hammers are much like Maces, and can be wielded by anyone with the
    Mace skill. They are one-handed weapons, and although they tend to
    be a little slower than Maces, they typically cause more damage.
    Attack: +0
    Damage: 2d5 (2-10)
    Value: 120
    A crude, tool-like weapon, this hammer includes a wrist chain to prevent
    it from dropping from your hand.
    Attack: +3
    Damage: 2d5+3 (5-13)
    Value: 300
    A step up in construction quality, these hammers are commonly wielded by
    humanoid monsters. Since everyone knows most monsters don't make weapons,
    the question 'from where are they getting them?' arises...
    -       HATS       -
    Hats are an alternative to Helms or Crowns. Like Crowns, they do not
    add to a character's armor class, but are often enchanted. However, the
    enchantments on Hats tend to be weaker than those found on Crowns.
    Value: 20
    A common, cloth hat with a feather stuck in the band to add a dash of
    Value: 100
    A simple hat meant tok eep sun and dust off a traveller's head.
    Value: 200
    The latest in fashion, this hat harkens back to more of a working class
    style. It isn't really the hat that's in style, it's the working man that
    young nobles are trying to emulate - who in turn seeks to emulate the
    -       HELMS      -
    Helms are the only type of headgear that add directly to your armor
    class. In addition, they may be enchanted, though usually not as
    well as Crowns. Any character can wear a Helm.
    Armor: +2
    Value: 60
    This cheap helm is better suited for a costume party than a battle. The
    horns have been glued onto a rigid leather cap dyed black to make it look
    scarier. The material is brittle and flaky, and will probably come apart at
    just the wrong time.
    Armor: +6
    Value: 260
    The simple style and uniformity of these helms is meant to strike terror
    into the hearts of enemies when they see row upon row of bronze, spiked
    helms marching toward them.
    Armor: +8
    Value: unverified
    This helm design has been used by the Elves of Erathia since before the
    Silence. It is composed of silver and steel and is very strong.
    -   LARGE SHIELDS  -
    Large Shields are, as the name implies, bigger than Small Shields. They
    add directly to a character's armor class, and tend to have higher armor
    bonuses than small shields. However, you pay a price for this: wielding
    a Large Shield slows your character down in combat. Only characters with
    the Shield skill may equip one, and only if they are using a one-handed
    Armor: +6
    Value: 200
    A simple, old shield with crude markings on its face. Ugly, but practical.
    -  LEATHER ARMOR   -
    Leather armor is the weakest kind of armor, and tends to be less
    protective than chain or plate. Fortunately, it is also cheaper,
    and restricts your movements less. Any character with Leather skill may
    wear this armor.
    Armor: +4
    Value: 150
    Leather armor is the lightest and most easily worn armor, but it offers less
    protection that the heavier armors. The leather in this suit was improperly
    cured and still stinks of the chemicals used in its production.
    (Editor's note: "that the heavier armors" is a typo, it should be "than the
    heavier armors". This mistake is present even in the latest version of the
    Armor: +6
    Value: 250
    This suit of leather armor is held together with bronze studs instead of
    leather straps. This construction makes it a bit stronger, but also a bit
    -     LONGBOW      -
    Longbows are ranged weapons usable by any character with the Bow
    skill. They tend to be more powerful than Crossbows.
    Shoot: +0
    Damage: 5d2 (5-10)
    Value: 100
    A simple longbow constructed of common materials and uninspired design.
    Shoot: +2
    Damage: 5d2+2 (7-12)
    Value: 200
    A higher quality long bow designed after the elven long bow, but without
    the elven skill.
    -   LONG DAGGER    -
    Long Daggers may be wielded by anyone with the Dagger skill, and
    are usually more powerful than standard Daggers.
    Attack: +0
    Damage: 2d3 (2-6)
    Value: 15
    The long dagger combines the extra reach of the sword with the stealth of
    the dagger.
    Attack: +4
    Damage: 2d3+4 (6-10)
    Value: 200
    Really more of a short sword than a dagger, the narrow blade belies an
    unusual strength and a possibly enchanted edge.
    -    LONGSWORD     -
    Longswords are the main line of swords, doing more damage than
    Cutlasses but less than Broadswords. They may be wielded by anyone
    with the Sword skill, and are one-handed.
    Some longswords of Elven make are referred to as 'sabers' by the game,
    but they handle the same way longswords do.
    Attack: +0
    Damage: 3d3 (3-9)
    Value: 50
    Though notched and dented, this longsword is still an effective weapon.
    Attack: +3
    Damage: 3d3+3 (6-12)
    Value: 200
    A common elven weapon, this saber is a deadly, if unremarkable, weapon.
    -       MACE       -
    Maces are typically wielded by Clerics, whose faith prevents
    them from using edged weapons (although in Might & Magic 7,
    that does not seem to restrict bows). Any character with Mace
    skill can wield these weapons. They are not as powerful as
    Hammers, but are a little quicker.
    Attack: +0
    Damage: 2d4 (2-8)
    Value: 50
    Barely more sophisticated than a normal club, the mace is slightly more
    effective and much more durable.
    Attack: +2
    Damage: 2d4+2 (4-10)
    Value: 150
    This weapon is designed to inflict good damage to both armored and
    unarmored opponents.
    -   PLATE ARMOR    -
    Plate armor is the best, most expensive and heaviest armor around.
    It can only be worn by characters with plate skill, which is
    available only to the Knight and the Paladin. Plate armor tends
    to boost your armor class significantly, but slows your character
    down as well.
    Armor: +20
    Value: 1000
    Plate armor is the strongest armor available. It is much heavier than other
    suits of armor, and requires considerable practice to get used to wearing.
    This suit is made of iron, and the workmanship is unremarkable.
    -     POTIONS      -
    Potions can either be found, bought or made by a character with the
    Alchemy skill. The most basic Red, Blue and Yellow potions can be made
    by taking an herb of the appropriate color and using it together with an
    empty potion bottle. Any character, even those without the Alchemy skill,
    can do this.
    More complicated potion types are made by mixing potions. However, if
    two incompatible potions are mixed or the character doing it does not have
    enough Alchemy skill, the combination will explode, destroying both potions
    and damaging (possibly killing) the unfortunate would-be alchemist. The
    exact recipes for potion mixing are beyond the scope of this FAQ, but I've
    mentioned the ingredients for those potions for which I know them.
    Making a purple, green or orange potion requires basic Alchemy skill.
    Making a layered potion requires expert Alchemy skill.
    The power of a potion depends both on the Alchemy skill of the character
    who mixed it and the power of the potions/herbs used to mix it. For some
    potions, power has no effect on what it does, but their power still carries
    through if you mix another potion with them.
    AWAKEN (Green Potion)
    Value: 50
    Recipe: mix a Yellow and a Blue potion for this one.
    Removes Sleep condition.
    BLESS (Layered Potion)
    Value: 150
    Recipe: mix a Green and a Red potion for this one.
    Grants Bless (as the spell) for 30 minutes per point of potion strength.
    CATALYST (Grey Potion)
    Value: 1
    Recipe: made directly with a grey reagent and an empty potion bottle.
    Catalysts are mixed with potions to modify the strength of the potion. The
    potion will take the strength of the catalyst you mix with it. Be careful
    not to mix a strong potion with a weak catalyst!
    (Editor's note: Any character, even those without Alchemy skill, can safely
    mix any potion with a catalyst. Drinking a catalyst will only poison the
    CURE DISEASE (Orange Potion)
    Value: 50
    Recipe: mix a Red and a Yellow potion for this one.
    Cures Disease.
    CURE INSANITY (Layered Potion)

    Recipe: made directly with a yellow reagent and an empty potion bottle.
    Cures Weakness.
    CURE WOUNDS (Red Potion)
    Value: 5
    Recipe: made directly with a red reagent and an empty potion bottle.
    Heals 10 plus the potion strength hit points.
    HARDEN ITEM (Layered Potion)
    Value: 150
    Recipe: mix a Yellow and a Green potion for this one.

    Recipe: mix a Red and an Orange potion for this one.
    Grants Haste (as the spell) for 30 minutes per point of potion strength.
    HEROISM (Layered Potion)

    Grants Heroism (as the spell) for 30 minutes per point of potion strength.
    MAGIC POTION (Blue Potion)
    Value: 5

    Grants Preservation (as the spell) for 30 minutes per point of potion
    RECHARGE ITEM (Layered Potion)
    Value: 150
    Recipe: Mix a Green and a Blue potion for this one.
    Grants Recharge Item (as the spell). The item permanently loses 70% -
    point of potion strength of its charges.
    (Editor's note: another typo, "point" should be "points".)
    STONESKIN (Layered Potion)
    Value: 150
    Recipe: Mix a Yellow and an Orange potion for this one.
    Grants Stoneskin (as the spell) for 30 minutes per point of potion

    Value: 150
    Recipe: Mix a Yellow and a Purple Potion for this one.
    Prevents drowning damage.
    -     REAGENTS     -
    Reagents are used to mix potions. By picking up a reagent and rightclicking
    it over an empty potion bottle, a basic red, yellow or blue potion
    may be mixed. More complicated potion are made by mixing individual
    potions with each other, but wrong combinations will result in explosions
    which will cause damage to whoever was trying to mix them. The more
    powerful the potions were, the more damage the explosion does - trying to
    mix the most powerful potions in the game with each other will result in
    Power: 5
    Value: 10
    A magical reagent of unusual properties. Crushed rose petals can be used to
    make red potions. (To use, pick the herb up and right-click over an empty
    potion bottle.)
    Power: 5
    Value: 10
    A magical reagent of unusual properties. Fae dust can be used to make
    yellow potions. (To use, pick the herb up and right-click over an empty
    potion bottle.)
    Power: 5

    A magical reagent of unusual properties. Meteorite fragment can be used to
    make blue potions. (To use, pick the herb up and right-click over an
    empty potion bottle.)
    (Editor's note: typo in this one, it should be "fragments".)
    Power: 1

    A magical reagent of unusual properties. Mushrooms can be used to make
    catalysts. (To use, pick the herb up and right-click over an empty potion

    yellow potions. (To use, pick the herb up and right-click over an empty
    potion bottle.)
    Power: 10

    -      RINGS       -
    Rings are the main carriers of enchantments in Might & Magic 7. Just
    about any enchantment may be placed on a ring, but the quality of
    the ring normally determines the quality of the enchantment.
    Any character may wear up to six rings, and the effects of any
    enchantments on them are cumulative. Unenchanted rings are
    typically worth a bit of coin in town, and you can fit a lot of
    them in your backpack. The most expensive rings are tough to
    identify, however.
    Value: 100
    A tarnished brass ring. Polished up, you might be able to sell it for
    something...but don't expect much.
    Value: 300
    A large, imperfect pearl adorns this otherwise unremarkable gold ring.
    -  SMALL SHIELDS   -
    Small Shields may be wielded by anyone with the Shield skill,
    assuming he/she has a free hand to spare. Although they do
    not boost your armor class as much as Large Shields would, they
    do not slow you down as much, either.
    Armor: +4
    Value: 100
    A small wood buckler designed to protect against arrows without encumbering
    its wielder. The quality is amaturish, but it's in good condition and will
    serve its purpose.
    (Editor's note: "amateurish" is misspelled as "amaturish" in this item
    Armor: +6
    Value: 200
    Bronze shields are lighter than iron shields of the same size, but aren't
    nearly as strong.
    -      SPEARS      -
    Spears are long range weapons. Although they cannot be thrown, you can
    still stab monsters with them just before they are in range for Sword,
    Axe, Mace or Dagger attacks. Spears can be wielded with either one or
    two hands (depending on whether you have a shield equipped). Wielding
    a spear with two hands boosts the damage done, adding 1d9 (1-9) to
    every hit. One major advantage of the Spear is that it works well
    underwater, which is significant in a certain scene late in the game.
    You need the Spear skill to wield a Spear.
    Attack: +0
    Damage: 1d9 (1-9) / 2d9 (2-18)
    Value: 15
    Though constructed with a head of sharpened rock lashed to a rough stick,
    this spear can cause serious damage.
    Attack: +1
    Damage: 1d9+1 (2-10) / 2d9+1 (3-19)
    Value: 50
    Spears like this are found in all armies where their versatility as both
    pole and melee weapons are demonstrated regulary.
    (Editor's note: "regularly" is misspelled as "regulary" in this item
    -      STAVES      -
    Staves are commonly wielded by Mages and Monks, but anyone with the Staff
    skill can use one. These weapons are two-handed and not very powerful.
    However, the Monk can turn it into a very deadly weapon with the right
    skills, and Mages have other means to dish out large chunks of damage.
    Attack: +0
    Damage: 2d4 (2-8)
    Value: 40
    The staff is the common weapon of the oppressed.
    -     TRIDENTS     -
    Tridents fall under the Spear skill, and can be wielded by anyone with
    that skill. They tend to do more damage than Spears, and are often a
    better choice.
    Attack: +0
    Damage: 2d6 (2-12)
    Value: 100
    A variant of the farmer's pitchfork, the trident had been used by spear
    fishermen since time began. Now it is the traditional weapon of sea-going
    warriors throughout the world.
    Two-handed axes can be wielded by anyone with the Axe skill. Naturally,
    wielding one of these means there's no room for a shield. Two-handed
    axes are among the most powerful melee weapons in the game, but also
    very slow to swing.
    Attack: +0
    Damage: 3d7 (3-21)
    Value: 225
    Ths style of long hafted axe has better reach and more power than the
    normal one-handed axe.
    Attack: +3
    Damage: 3d7+3 (6-24)
    Value: 450
    This poleaxe has a sharper blade equipped with all the latest in military
    technology: Blood grooves, whistle-holes, and a counterbalanced, smaller
    blade behind the haft for tricky, disembowling, backstrokes.
    (Editor's note: that should be "disemboweling" if I'm not mistaken. Pretty
    good item description though, eh?)
    Two-handed swords are the only kind of sword that must be wielded with
    two hands. They do a lot of damage, although wielding two one-handed swords
    tends to be a better deal damagewise.
    Attack: +0
    Damage: 4d5 (4-20)
    Value: 400
    This simple two-handed sword with a leather grip is a common design in
    -      WANDS       -
    Wands always contain a certain spell. Which spells they can cast
    depends on the type of wand. To use a wand, you equip it as if
    it were a weapon. With every attack, one charge is used and the
    appropriate spell is launched at the target. Once a wand is out
    of charges, it can no longer be used - however, you can still
    sell it.
    Wands tend to cast the spells that come from them at a high
    skill level, regardless of who wields them. Therefore, they
    are more powerful than they may look. Do not sell them off too
    quickly, but do not be afraid to use them, either.
    Spell level: Expert
    Value: 2000
    Made from the hollowed out horn of a unicorn and capped with a spiked
    brass ball, wands like these are born of cruelty and evil. The enchantment
    it holds is useful; the only real question is whether you believe your
    cause justifies the use of an item so wickedly created.
    -   OTHER ITEMS    -
    These are all the items that do not fall into any other categories.
    This includes quest items, so be careful. This section may contain
    Value: 0
    Location: Whitecliff Caves, Harmondale
    Quest Item: A deck of fancifully drawn cards used for a popular card game.
    (Editor's note: this item is part of an optional quest in Harmondale. Also,
    once you have found it, you can play Arcomage in any of the game's taverns.)
    Value: 100
    A spell book. To learn this spell, pick the book up and left-click over
    the picture of your character in the inventory screen.
    (Editor's note: spells can only be learned if you have the appropriate
    skill. For higher level spells, a certain degree of mastery is needed as
    well. Finally, a character cannot learn the same spell twice.)
    Armor: +7
    Value: 300
    Location: Dragon Cave, Emerald Island
    Quest item: Blood stains the back side of this battered shield. The owner
    must certainly have been killed while using it.
    (Editor's note: this item is part of an optional quest on Emerald Island.)
    FLOOR TILE (with moon insignia)
    Value: 0
    Location: Abandoned Temple, Emerald Island
    Quest Item: This tile was apparently part of the library in a Temple of
    the Moon.
    (Editor's note: this item is needed to complete a plot critical quest. It
    can be found in a secret room in the Abandoned Temple on Emerald Island.)
    Value: varies
    A small pile of gold coins.
    (Editor's note: description varies with the size of the stack. Larger
    stacks might be descriped as 'large piles' or 'huge piles'. Piles of gold
    are only found in chests and lying on the ground - once taken, they are
    added to your party's gold total, not as an item to your inventory.)

    This flawless horseshoe is made of silver. To use, pick the horseshoe up
    and right-click over a character's portrait.

    Quest Item: A latter from Norbert Thrush to Lord Markham. Opening a sealed
    letter is in the poorest of taste, and would be frowned upon by both

    Location: Emerald Island, carried by Bard in southern part of town
    This lute has been masterfully crafted and lovingly maintained. This
    instrument clearly belongs to a Bard.
    (Editor's note: this item is needed to complete a plot critical quest. It
    can be bought from the Bard, stolen by a thief, or collected from the Bard's
    body after killing her or having the Dragonflies kill her.)
    Value: 0
    A message scroll. To read this message, pick the scroll up and left-click
    over the character picture in the inventory screen.
    (Editor's note: You must actually hold down the left mouse button to read
    a scroll, as the text will disappear as soon as you release the mouse
    button. Message scrolls are not vital to any quests and may be discarded
    after you've read them.)
    Value: 1
    An empty potion bottle.

    create one of the three basic potion types. No Alchemy skill is needed for

    Apples like these are produced by trees saturated by magic - usually in the
    elven lands of Avlee and the Tularean Forest, though not restricted to these
    areas. To use the apple, pick the apple up and left-click over the picture
    of your character in the inventory screen.
    (Editor's note: using an apple will add 1 to your food reserve. There is
    no reason to not use an apple right away when you find one, except if you
    are about to visit the Fairy King who will take away your entire food
    reserve in payment for one of your quests involving him. In that case having
    a few spare apples in your backpack can be a good idea.)

    Location: Emerald Island, northwestern shack, or bought at northeastern
    section of island
    Quest item: Seashells this large are only found on the beaches of Emerald
    Island. One of these might make a nice souvenir of your time here.
    (Editor's note: this item is needed to complete a plot critical quest. It
    can either be found in a chest or bought from one of the island's citizens
    for 100 gold.)
    Value: varies
    A spell scroll. To cast this spell, pick the scroll up and left-click over
    the picture of your character in the inventory screen.
    (Editor's note: higher level spells result in more valuable scrolls. Spells
    cast from a scroll are counted as having a pretty high skill level, and
    are usually more powerful than those cast normally by your mages unless
    they are very skilled.)
