List of Greater Magic Items

Greater Magic Items are Magic Items you can craft upon reaching Construction Level 4. These are the generic ones.

Some notes:

  • DMG is Damage, AP is Armor-Piercing (ignoring half of Protection), and AN is Armor-Negating (ignoring all of it).
  • FAT is Fatigue, and is Armor-Negating (AN) unless said otherwise.
  • Poison Damage is also Armor-Negating (AN) unless said otherwise.
  • Fear Damage lowers Morale instead of HP, and builds up to a rout. What it interacts with, and if it even DRN's, is uncertain.
  • Partial Life Drain Damage only does up to 5 actual points of Life Drain Damage; the rest is normal.
  • Other stats use Manual notation (STR is Strength, ATT is Attack, DEF is Defense, MOR is Morale, PROT is Protection, etc.).
  • Shatter Damage applies only to Inanimates, but I'll restate it anyway.
  • "Damage to Armor" can break it; like what normal Damage can do to Rusty Armor.
  • Capped DMG hits can never do more Damage than what the weapon says, though DRN rolls and Strength apply beforehand.
  • Bouncing DMG is also called "Chaining" Damage, and will never hit the same guy twice in a row.
  • Stuff that "adds X" constantly reapplies "X" while held, if you somehow Heal it.
  • Holding 2 of an Item does not give you the item's out-of-combat effects Twice, aside from some Afflictions.
  • Damage Multipliers are applied after Strength and before DRN rolls vs. Protection.
  • Research Boosters only work for those who can already Research (as in, those who already have Research Points).
  • The number after "Obfuscate" indicates the change in the Army Size that foes will see; negative decreases, positive increases.
  • Sailing (and "Air Sailing", which is just Flying with your troops) has two numbers; the number before the slash is the maximum size of any rider, and the number after the slash is the maximum added-up Size of everyone in the army (including the Commander) it can handle.
  • Items that provide a Magic boost (such as the Thistle Mace) will only do that if the holder innately has a level in that path.
  • Tainted Items, as mentioned in the Items page, have the listed chance to apply a Horror Mark each turn.
  • Bold text in the top line is supposed to indicate that the item is Cursed, or Unremovable, while an EVER is meant to specify that it is Unlootable (can't be picked up by other Commanders after the holder dies) if that isn't mentioned in the bottom line.
