    II. Introduction
    
    There's a serious lack of Entomorph content these days. Personally,
    I consider this game a classic, and it's a real shame it's been
    slept on for so long. There's no real comprehensive info on
    the items in this game, so I figured something like this
    was greatly overdue.

    IV. Item Info
    
    Here you'll find a list of all items in the game, where to find
    them, and what their use is. The list is in alphabetical order.
    If you know what you are looking for, use the Ctrl-F search
    feature to find it. 
    
    
    
    
    -------------------------------------------------------
    
    Item Name: Armor Charm
    Location: Abandoned Village, Eastern side of Phoros
    
    You'll find two ghosts in the area, one of a villager,
    and one of a recently blinded Noble who mistakes you
    for someone named Hiunan.
    
    He'll ask you to find a healer.
    
    Agree, and find the ghost of the villager. He'll talk
    about blinding the Noble, and you can tell him you
    are able to help if he'll follow you.
    
    Lead the villager's ghost the the Noble's ghost, and
    they'll both disappear, dropping the Armor Charm behind.
    
    Description:
    
    Well, it's another great Charm item. You can ALMOST
    see a difference when at the end of the game at
    the highest difficulty.
    
    Still fairly useless.
    
    -------------------------------------------------------
    
    Item Name: Bag of Ants
    Location: Eastern Phoros, by Sechdric's camp
    after finishing the T'Urthrax Mata's quest
    
    Description:
    
    Sechdric will explain the growing danger of
    the Theyld Queen, and give you this bag of ants.
    
    When you have this in your inventory, the Thelyd
    will not attack you as long as you don't stray
    from the main paths.
    
    -------------------------------------------------------
    
    Item Name: Ball of Poison
    Location: Mutrizzba Shrine, in a chest immediately
    after slaying the Queen
    
    Description:
    
    A venomous ball used to poison some sort of living
    pool in the Theyld stronghold.
    
    -------------------------------------------------------
    
    Item Name: Bee Egg
    Location: Panorpid Hive, Alpha Egg Chamber
    
    Description:
    
    Used to complete the Queen's task and gain access
    to her antechambers.
    
    Simply pick it up, and drop it where you unloaded
    the blood earlier on.
    
    -------------------------------------------------------
    
    Item Name: Bee Wax
    Location: Panorpid Hive, Wax Chamber
    
    Description:
    
    Used to complete the Queen's task and gain access
    to her antechambers.
    
    Simply pick it up, and drop it where you unloaded
    both the blood and the egg earlier on.
    
    -------------------------------------------------------
    
    Item Name: Bloody Sponge
    Location: Receive Automatically
    
    Description:
    
    Used to resurrect the Shaman to save Hammis Island.
    If you bring both this item and the Shaman's Amulet to
    his corpse, he will return to life for a short period.
    
    -------------------------------------------------------
    
    Item Name: Blueprints
    Location: Keechda Underground Temple, Tube Maze
    
    Description:
    
    One of three items needed for Oochdar to repair
    the final Machine Module used to reactivate the
    Great Keechda Machine.
    
    -------------------------------------------------------
    
    Item Name: Child's Toy
    Location: Maggot Cave
    
    Description:
    
    You can give the Child's Toy to the old woman
    Kolfinna in Saltmoon. When you do, she'll teach you
    the Phoros National Anthem.
    
    You can recite the Anthem to the Nobles in the
    Saltmoon town square to receive a Jar of Nectar.
    
    If you aren't interested in finding it out yourself,
    the Phoros National Anthem goes like this:
    
    Greeble heeble habalibbel
    Wongo jungo babalibbel
    Keeble jeeble pergomiddel
    Kirgo Wingo Scamzahizzel!
    
    So... yeah. =/
    
    -------------------------------------------------------
    
    Item Name: Crystals
    Location: Keechda Underground Temple, receive from
    Sabaruk after returning his father's severed head
    
    Description:
    
    One of three items needed for Oochdar to repair
    the final Machine Module used to reactivate the
    Great Keechda Machine.
    
    -------------------------------------------------------
    
    Item Name: Elaborate Scroll
    Location: Mutrizzba Shrine, before exiting
    
    Description:
    
    The scroll reads as following:
    
    Intone the Incantation
    by Shadowed Cross
    Part Water Raise Stone
    Passage Open
    
    Al Kom Halatha Baram
    
    Basically, use this item near the Black Cross sign
    on the eastern part of the island. A passage will open
    up, and you'll be able to get the Web Walk spell.
    
    -------------------------------------------------------
    
    Item Name: Gift
    Location: Receive from Clorin on Hammis Island
    
    Description:
    
    On your way to sail off of Hammis Island, Clorin will
    run into you. He'll express concern for his cousin
    Baytha, and ask if you'll take this Gift, aptly enough
    a bouquet of flowers, to her. You can turn him down,
    but it's somewhat worth your while to agree to help.
    
    -------------------------------------------------------
    
    Item Name: Golden Coin
    Location: Third Rebel Camp, hidden in the rug
    
    Description:
    
    Used to activate the Golden Table in the Ziggurat
    connecting to the Panorpid Hive. 
    
    -------------------------------------------------------
    
    Item Name: Golden Scarab
    Location: King's Palace, Dungeon
    
    Description:
    
    The true source of the Darkfall plague.
    
    You'll receive the Scarab after slaying the Queen's
    mutated body. Your goal is to take the Scarab
    to the chest in the center of Phoros, at the 
    hill's peak.
    
    Note that if you don't be quick about it, you will
    transform into a mutated creature similar to the
    Queen, and you'll get a game over.
    
    You have more than enough time to defeat 
    the T'Urthrax Mata and get the Scarab back to
    the chest, though.
    
    -------------------------------------------------------
    
    Item Name: History Book
    Location: Theyld Anthill Area, Abandoned House
    
    Description:
    
    A large blue book entitled 'The Dark Ages of Phoros'.
    
    There's a house with a man locked inside in the 
    deserted village on the eastern part of the island.
    
    You can trade this book to him in exchange for
    information. You can talk to him at any time after
    giving him the book.
    
    Not a bad trade.
    
    -------------------------------------------------------
    
    Item Name: Jar of Honey
    Location: Saltmoon Village
    
    Description:
    
    You'll find this item in the weird house filled with
    bees. You'll likely be killed almost immediately
    if you enter early on, so wait until later. Once you're
    transformed into your second form, cast a fully 
    energized Armor and a Haste spell, and run in and out
    to get it.
    
    You can use this item when you have to go to the
    Underground Keechda Temple. The young Keechda Mongrel
    guarding the door insists you give him nectar, 
    otherwise he won't let you in.
    
    This item exists as a decoy to give him. Although, if
    you have the Nectar to spare, you need not bother
    with it. It's really your choice.
    
    -------------------------------------------------------
    
    Item Name: Jar of Nectar
    Location: Various.
    
    After entering the first Rebel Camp, your sister
    will ask you what she should do with her jar. You can
    choose to take it.
    
    You can also trade three orchids to Kolfinna for another
    jar.
    
    Successfully reciting the Phoros National Anthem to the
    two nobles in the Saltmoon town square will net you 
    another jar.
    
    The rest are scattered in dungeons and temples in
    obvious areas.
    
    Description:
    
    Nectar is weird. Apparently it greatly boosts your
    strength, but I've personally never noticed much of
    a difference after using it.
    
    On the plus side, using a Jar of Nectar will fully
    restore your Health bar. Since you can have about
    eight to ten jars around the end of the game, they can
    be an effective way to restore your health if you 
    choose to save each Jar.
    
    -------------------------------------------------------
    
    Item Name: Luck Charm
    Location: Second Rebel Camp, after visiting the
    Third Camp and hearing about the treasure
    
    Description:
    
    Another wonderful charm item. Almost certainly does
    nothing. Our pal Squire Warrick even comments on this,
    as you find this wonderfully Lucky trinket in a grave.
    
    On the plus side, you find a Mana Potion, too.
    
    -------------------------------------------------------
    
    Item Name: Machine Modules
    Location: Scattered throughout the Keechda Underground
    Temple, attached to various machines
    
    Description:
    
    Thin square modules of a bright blue color. You'll
    need to pry them off various machines. There are nine
    in total, and you'll need them all to reactivate
    the Great Keechda machine.
    
    -------------------------------------------------------
    
    Item Name: Mana Charm
    Location: Small island on the east of Phoros
    
    Description:
    
    You can get to this island via warp tube through
    the Keechda Underground Temple. You'll need a 
    Mookaluke to activate it. 
    
    Like the other charms, it isn't very helpful,
    but if you're a perfectionist, you'll go for it.
    
    -------------------------------------------------------
    
    Item Name: Mana Potion
    Location: Received from Damos Village Elder after
    successfully saving Hammis Island. Also found in several
    chests and ceramic pots throughout the game.
    
    Description: 
    
    Fully restores your mana bar. This is
    one of the few ways to do so, and these potions are
    fairly rare. Save them for when it'll count.
    
    -------------------------------------------------------
    
    Item Name: Medallion
    Location: Theyld Stronghold, BF2 
    
    Description:
    
    Immediately after slaying the Theyld Queen, her
    hoard of jelly will appear. Opt to touch it, and 
    you'll find this medallion inside. Allows you to
    gain access to the Distillery.
    
    -------------------------------------------------------
    
    Item Name: Mookaluke
    Location: Keechda Underground Temple, Great Machine
    
    Description:
    
    You need a Mooka Statue to insert into the machine.
    If you do so, a Mookaluke will pop out. It's a useful
    little trinket that can activate machines and several
    warp tubes throughout the game. You'll need at least
    one to complete the game.
    
    -------------------------------------------------------
    
    Item Name: Mooka Statue
    Location: Saltmoon Village, Seized House. 
    Also found in areas Nobles are found.
    
    Description:
    
    Once you repair the Great Machine of the Keechda
    Underground Temple, you'll need Mooka Statues to
    create Mookalukes. See 'Mookalukes' for their uses.
    
    -------------------------------------------------------
    
    Item Name: Mushrooms
    Location: King's Palace, Kitchen
    
    Description:
    
    The head chef will ask you to dispose of these
    poisonous mushrooms.
    
    Naturally, you have a better idea. One of the Mutalids
    in the common room will show you how to mesmerize
    a Muncher, effectively leaving him open to suggestion.
    
    Using this trick, you can fool the poor little guy
    into using the Mushrooms to poison the Noble
    guarding the Northwest door, allowing you to
    proceed deeper into the Palace.
    
    -------------------------------------------------------
    
    Item Name: Mutrizzba's Egg
    Location: The Great Mutrizzba's Shrine
    
    Description:
    
    You'll receive this automatically, just before you
    engage the Mutrizzba Queen in battle.
    
    It will hatch near the end of the game, turning
    into the 'Sleeping Fly' item.
    
    -------------------------------------------------------
    
    Item Name: Noble's Body
    Location: Hills southwest from the Panorpid Hive
    
    Description:
    
    Used to complete the Queen's task and gain access
    to her antechambers.
    
    Pick it up near the hills, and bring it back into the
    hive. Speak to the Queen through the voice tube, and
    the body will drop to the ground, and the door to the
    Queen's antechambers will open.
    
    -------------------------------------------------------
    
    Item Name: Orchid
    Location: Scattered throughout the Phoros wildland
    
    Description:
    
    Red and violet emblazened flowers. Be warned that they
    will exhale a poison vapor when you approach, so back
    off, wait until it disappears, and strike it. You can 
    then pick it up.
    
    Orchids only have two purposes. The first is to extract
    both information and 
    
    -------------------------------------------------------
    
    Item Name: Orb of Disclosure
    Location: Theyld Stronghold, 1st Floor
    
    Description:
    
    A shimmering blue orb with Sechdric's severed arm
    still grasping it. This item will allow you to see
    the pheremone trails in the Theyld Stronghold.
    
    However, the place is fairly easy to navigate, so
    it's more of a novelty than anything. It's a 
    neat concept, though.
    
    -------------------------------------------------------
    
    Item Name: Parchment
    Location: King's Palace, Arena, Upper Right Cell
    
    Description:
    
    Reads as follows:
    
    Porothos Malis Mordosis.
    
    Use this Parchment in the Lower Left Cell of
    the Arena where the wall is slightly different.
    Once you do, you'll be able to pass through it and
    collect a Potion of Restoration.
    
    -------------------------------------------------------
    
    Item Name: Pendant of Communication
    Location: Damos Village, receive from the Storyteller
    after saving Hammis Island
    
    Description:
    
    Ugh. Quite an annoying item. This allows the 
    Storyteller to follow your actions through the course
    of the game, and comment on them every now and then.
    His voice actor is terrible, and it's pretty pointless.
    A mandatory item, unfortunately.
    
    -------------------------------------------------------
    
    Item Name: Potion of Restoration
    Location: Maggot Cave, several chests.
    
    Description:
    
    A much more potent potion that restores both your
    Health and Mana bars. Much rarer than Mana potions, 
    and definitely best saved for the more powerful
    bosses later on.
    
    -------------------------------------------------------
    
    Item Name: Room Key
    Location: King's Palace, Noble's Quarters
    
    Description:
    
    This allow you to leave the Noble's Quarters, as the 
    only exit will lock automatically.
    
    -------------------------------------------------------
    
    Item Name: Sea Sponge
    Location: Hammis Island, Village of Addegun
    
    Description:
    
    You'll use this sponge to soak up some of the fallen
    Shaman's blood from the Mutrizzba mosquito that 
    killed him. It'll automatically become the Bloody 
    Sponge afterwards.
    
    -------------------------------------------------------
    
    Item Name: Severed Head
    Location: Keechda Underground Temple, Tube Maze
    
    Description:
    
    A Severed Keechda head, belonging to the father of
    Sabaruk. Return the head to him, and he'll give you
    some Crystals in gratitude.
    
    -------------------------------------------------------
    
    Item Name: Shaman's Amulet
    Location: Hammis Island, Village of Damos 
    
    Description:
    
    Used to resurrect the Shaman to save Hammis Island.
    If you bring both this item and the Bloody Sponge to
    his corpse, he will return to life for a short period.
    
    -------------------------------------------------------
    
    Item Name: Sleeping Fly
    Location: Receive automaticall after your 
    victory in the Arena
    
    Description:
    
    The egg the Mutrizzba Queen laid in your shoulder has
    finally hatched.
    
    Basically, it protects you from the T'Urthrax Mata's
    time space abilities in the last battle.
    
    -------------------------------------------------------
    
    Item Name: Strength Charm
    Location: Receive from Baytha in Saltmoon village after
    giving her Clorin's Gift
    
    Description:
    
    Strike up a conversation with Baytha, and you can 
    mention her name sounding familiar. She'll mention
    Clorin, and in return, she'll give you the Strength
    Charm. Basically, it's supposed to increase your
    attack power by a small amount, but the bonus is either
    negligible or non-existent.
    
    Note that if you opt to flirt with Baytha or tell
    her Clorin said she would help you, she'll brush you
    off, permanently, leaving you with the Gift for the
    rest of the game.
    
    -------------------------------------------------------
    
    Item Name: Super Mana Charm
    Location: King's Palace, Royal Bedroom
    
    Description:
    
    A better version of the Mana Charm.
    
    You'll actually see a small difference in Mana
    consumption with this item. 
    
    Pity you receive it so late in the game.
    
    -------------------------------------------------------
    
    Item Name: Talking Skull
    Location: T'Urthrax Ravine
    
    Description:
    
    It's a talking skull. You find it in the Ravine, and
    promise to take it to its lost body.
    
    The location of the body in question is just outside
    of the Ravine, in the abandoned village surrounded
    by webs. His body is at the bottom of the well you may
    have noticed earlier. Reuniting the two will net you
    the Lightning Bolt spell.
    
    -------------------------------------------------------
    
    Item Name: Tube Maze Key
    Location: Keecha Underground Temple, receive
    automatically from Oochdar
    
    Description:
    
    Allows you to enter the Tube Maze within the Keechda
    Underground Temple. 
    
    -------------------------------------------------------
    
    Item Name: Urthrax Eyes
    Location: T'Urthrax Ravine
    
    Description:
    
    Before the T'Urthrax Mata will leave the ravine
    to destroy the Theyld, she needs proof that the
    Urthrax will not rebel. There are actually two
    different Urthrax Eyes items.
    
    You can either kill the Urthrax that helped you
    earlier, or spare him and he'll give you the
    eyes of a cocooned Urthrax.
    
    I'd recommend sparing him, as you'll get the
    Maelstrom spell if you do.
    
    -------------------------------------------------------
    
    Item Name: Wires
    Location: Keechda Underground Temple, Tube Maze
    
    Description:
    
    One of three items needed for Oochdar to repair
    the final Machine Module used to reactivate the
    Great Keechda Machine.
    
    -------------------------------------------------------
