Held Weapons

Damage is given first as the damage generator format, then translated into a damage range. Other factors can influence the damage amounts, as well. Most items can give 1d2 (1-2) damage when wielded. In addition to differences in damage, weapons can have a bonus or malus to their chance to hit, show in square brackets (e.g. [+1]). This makes a rapier an excellent weapon for an unskilled character; the bonus to hit allows you to be fairly effective even with no weapon skill. Included in {curly brackets} is the size of the weapon, important principally because one of your three possible weapon skill stars comes from skill with weapons of a given size.

Edged Weapons

  • Knife - 1d3+0 (1-3) [+1] {Tiny; Small for skill purposes}
  • Short Sword - 1d6+0 (1-6) [0] {Small}
  • Long Sword - 1d8+0 (1-8) {Medium}
  • Silver Sword - 1d8+0 (1-8) [0] {Medium}
    • Bonus damage to silver-sensitive monsters
  • Flaming Sword - 1d8 (1-8) [0] physical damage + 1d3 (1-3) fire damage {Medium}
    • Grants light radius 2
    • Created by dipping a Long Sword into a potion of Greek Fire or in lava

Pointed Weapons

  • Dagger - 1d4+0 (1-4) [+1] {Small}
  • Silver Dagger - 1d4+0 (1-4) [+1] {Small}
    • Bonus damage to silver-sensitive monsters

    • A lightning rapier has a number of charges, when they are exhausted it becomes a rapier
    • Created by exposure to electricity (spells or dragon breath)
    • Maximum charge is 99
      • The number of charges depends on how many times it is hit by the electrical blast. Once gives the rapier 20 charges, twice gives the rapier 70 charges, etc.
    • Striking an enemy with the Lightning Rapier will cause the wielder to quicken briefly.
  • Spear - 1d9+1 (2-10) [0] {Large}

    • Damage is type "fire" rather than type "physical"
    • Grants light radius 3
    • May be created by dipping a club into Greek Fire, but can be found in dungeon
  • Mace - 1d6+1 (2-7) [0] {Medium}
  • Ice Mace - +2 Cold, 1d6+1 Physical {Medium}
    • Created by freezing water containing a submerged mace, then extracting mace after melting the ice
    • Striking with the Ice Mace will cause the target to be slowed briefly, similar to Chilling Touch.
  • Warhammer - 2d4+3 (5-11) [0] {Large}
  • Earth Hammer - 2d4+5 (7-13) {Large}
    • Created by dropping a Warhammer in a pit, filling the pit, and then exposing the hammer.
    • When the pit is filled, a notice about a yellow glow is given.
    • The Earth Hammer grants the ability "can dig".
  • Staff 2d2+0 (2-4) {Large}
  • Crook 2d2+0 (2-4) [0] {Large} (likely considered part of the staff category, not confirmed)

Ranged Weapons

Most items in the game can be thrown 2 spaces, and do 1d2+0 damage. Tiny items, such as rings, only do 1 damage, and some items when thrown (such as staffs) do no damage at all. Those that do special damage when thrown or fired are listed below.

    • Note that while all but useless for damage (except silver ring on silver-phobes), rings throw rather well - is there some usefulness to this yet to be discovered?
