(TFT) TFT: New Magic Items
Here are some new magic items, most of which are from Interplay magazine.
After some thought-testing I discovered that most of those were hideously
underpriced. I revalued them by comparing them to similar items in
/Advanced Wizard/, and edited and cleaned up the descriptions as well. What
do you think?
LESSER ITEMS Price Notes Weeks ST Cost/week Starting Item
Break Weapon 5000 C 6 40 260 Any weapon
Gloves of Zeus 20,000 D 10 47 1200 Silver gloves
Horn of Plenty 4000 B 4 50 450 One large horn
GREATER ITEMS Price Notes Weeks ST Cost/week Starting Item
Magic Mirror 30,000 E 18 35 750 Mirror ($100)
Sorcerer's Eye 100,000 E 18 75 3800 Crystal orb
Truthspeak Orb 10,000 2 20 4300 Crystal orb
BREAK WEAPON: A weapon with this enchantment is capable
of breaking other weapons. If the wielder scores a
hit against an opponent's weapon (at the normal -4 DX
to hit) then it is affected as if the opponent had
just rolled an 18 to hit. This automatically means
a broken weapon unless it is fine, very fine, or
magically immune to being broken.
It costs 3 ST to activate this item for one turn,
and a successful hit (as described above) must be done
during that same turn, otherwise it behaves just like
a normal weapon. [DCS]
GLOVES OF ZEUS: This enchantment increases the wearer's
ST by 5, but only for purposes of lifting and shifting
heavy objects, and for increasing HtH damage. It also
allows the wearer to wield a weapon 5 ST higher than
normal. [Greg Sharp/IP6]
HORN OF PLENTY: A large horn which produces 10 man-days
of food per day. The food looks and smells great, but
is actually rather tasteless. [Greg Sharp/IP6]
MAGIC MIRROR: Just like a standard crystal ball, but it
will not show the future and all questions must be
rhymed, e.g. "Mirror, mirror, on the wall, who is the
fairest of them all?" The mirror also has a rather
sarcastic personality. Cost to use a magic mirror:
1 ST. [Greg Sharp/IP6]
SORCEROR'S EYE: This powerful item allows the wizard to
hypnotize victims as if he were a dragon. Assume about
one customer per week if the owner goes into business
making people forget talents and spells with this item.
Also, the local Wizard's Guild might get annoyed with
the competition. [Greg Sharp/IP6]
TRUTHSPEAK ORB: A small ball of crystal which shows the
level of truth spoken by anyone within the holder's
megamegahex. Absolute truth makes the orb turn dead
white; an outrageous lie turns it flat black. Most
statements will make the orb turn some shade of gray.
Note: The orb measures truth based on how much the
speaker /believes/ what he says is true. For example,
a madman could make the orb turn white by saying, "All
trees are evil" if he really believed that statement.
The reverse holds true as well - "I am a human" would
give a black result if a human believed he was an orc.
With this item truth is in the eye of the beholder.
