A cartographer's favorite!
74 Eliza Legend's Chimney Jump Chapeau -
In any town or city, slip on this fashionable headwear and you may travel by teleportation along rooftops one chimney or smoke stack at a time every six seconds. You must remain within the settlement limits of the city and use no more than twenty "jumps" per week. Descending safely from a rooftop remains the challenge of the wearer.
75 Mistress Muriel's Scepter of Extreme Annoyance -
Fall under the spell of this jeweled scepter, and you will find yourself quickly wrapped from head to toe in four separate layers of sticky-glue-coated bedsheets.
The fabric is tightly loomed and well made. The glue is stickier than honey and hardens to a rubbery shell within six seconds. Though it is not impervious to any cutting blade, it is doubtful that you will be free of it without a goodly number of accidental cuts. This deceptively powerful scepter may be used once per week, and will drop the most determined attacker to a struggling bundle of helpless fury!
76 Wicked Walter's Once-a-Week Wigout Wand of WHAT?!! -
Wield this terrifying wand to soak your enemy from the waist down with ice water. After a moment, it will then conjure 22 thumb-sized chimpanzees beneath their lower garments. The tiny simians will bite, scratch and claw until freed from the victim's under clothing, whereupon the tiny monkeys will climb quickly to the head and begin chewing on the ears. The onslaught will persist for up to four minutes.
77 The Vindicta-Ring Garbage Loop of Spite -
A deceptively simple, one foot diameter steel hoop. It is small enough to fit easily in any pack or under a waistband, etc. Its usefulness and potential for revenge are matchless. If an adversary, rival or, at the very least, a scumbag who deserves your ire and contempt is touched by this insidious ring of metal, and you recite the obscure, otherworldly incantation "Bless Your Heart" . . . The ring will be targeted to that being for as long as you own it or until you transfer the curse to another being. What does it do? If you must clear a table of food scraps . . . Sweep up rotten leaves, rancid vegetables or floor scraps . . . toss away ANY bit of stinking garbage that will fit through the hoop . . . ( Yes . . even when you must relieve yourself out in the wild ) . . . The ring will teleport it ALL onto the head and into the clothing of your selected original nemesis. Distance is not a factor, nor will it be blocked by being on a separate plane. The ring may be re-targeted to as many as 12 people before it loses its remarkable enchantment. A vile item. A most distasteful item. An item coveted by MILLIONS.
78 The Zekemeister Blowgun of Severe Inconvenience -
Do not find yourself on the 'business end' of this enchanted weapon. If your bare skin is pierced by a dart from this blow gun, you will find yourself re-located to the opposite side of the world. You will be stark naked. Your normal complexion will be transformed to the colors of an exotic tropical fish, and you will only be able to speak, write and understand an other-worldly language known as Swahili. ( Oh...and you will also be stricken with a severe bout of explosive diarrhea.) If you are fortunate enough to inflict this attack on your enemy, you will witness the collapse of their armor, clothing and possession's to the ground or floor where they will be free for retrieval at your convenience. The victim will not be restored to their original, normal bodily condition until they return to the spot where the dart struck. Even if the victim is a powerful mage, since most teleport spells must be spoken with exacting ritual incantations . . . they will have to manage the journey in the most mundane and time consuming ways. Luckily for the world at large, the blowgun may fire only ONE enchanted dart per year.
79 Lord Lumptangler's Lethal Lathe -
A single-use spell scroll that will literally spin your victim to a gruesome, spectacular demise. Cast it accurately and your enemy will begin rotating in place. Slowly at first . . then increasing in speed until all who look upon the victim will see nothing but a pillar of blurring motion. YOU, however will not behold the sight, as you will be wise enough to take cover before the pillar erupts outward in all directions . . re-decorating an area that may cover a full acre, or most certainly every surface of an interior chamber. Sadly . . . all armor, coins, clothing, jewels or weapons will be damaged to the consistency of blood soaked powder.
80 The Jester's Lethal Launch Cannon of Hilarity -
A pocket-sized carved wooden cannon, as innocent looking as a child's toy. But its hidden menace is deadly. If you see this knick-knack appear in battle, and it is tossed in your direction, do NOT catch it. If you do, the cannon will grow to 1,000 times in size and YOU will be trapped in the barrel of it. Two Mystical dancing Jesters in delightfully festive costumes will appear on the outside of it and begin painting stars and moons and brightly colored rings on the wheels and barrel as your muffled shouts and struggles are heard from within. They will conclude their merry decoration by aiming the weapon straight up and lighting the fuse. A blast will occur beneath you and you will explode from the top, to be sent 1 mile into the sky. Your corpse ( for you WILL be dead by the time you have been ejected from the cannon ) will likely be the last anyone sees of you, as there are known to be powerful erratic winds at such high altitudes. Witnesses may expect only a one in six chance of your remains plummeting back down anywhere near where you were so amusingly dispatched.
81 Sir Andrew's Double Barreled Arcane InSINity Cannon -
Aggressive users of the magical forces are all familiar with the unerringly accurate little jolts of energy called "hocus pocus punches". They do small amounts of damage to their targets, but always . . . ALWAYS strike true. Many will mourn the relative ineffectiveness of these tiny attacks. "It is such a sin," they might muse, "that my enemies are not blasted to pieces by my attacks." That is, until they are lucky enough to wield this ridiculously over-powered magical firearm. With the mere pulling of a trigger on the underside and directing the open tube of this metallic nightmare, ONE HUNDRED of the classic punches will blast out in rapid fire causing multiple enemies to spin like tops or dance in pummeling agony from the malevolent magic onslaught. This is, without a doubt one of the most sought after and expensive items to exist in this world, all the more so because of its sudden plane shift to an unknown location immediately after use. It may be fired repeatedly for as long as it remains drawn and aimed, but this will only last from ten to sixty seconds.
82 The Sky Quake Cloud Sculpting Ox Bladder -
Re-Shape all visible clouds in your area, from the boringly tame shapes of whales and weasels to the grotesquely lewd shapes of . . . imaginative activities that would offend entire provinces. The outrageous power of this mass illusion generator begins with simply inflating a drab, limp and slightly odoriferous ox bladder. Blow it full of air, and toss it straight up into the air as hard as you can. It will detonate with a thunderous and deafening blast . . as rings of shimmering air sweep away from it in a cone of rippling force that transforms all fluffy clouds into DETAILED moving shapes of your full mental visualizations. All who look up, will not look down again in a hurry. Maybe used only during daylight hours - Above ground - and the effect lasts for as long as twenty minutes.
83 Prefect Paul Pennington's Privacy Pulverizer -

From erotic, sensual musings with NAMED NAMES . . . to outright criminal embezzlement - Here is a spell that takes all of the well hidden pages and secret scribblings of those who take quill to parchment, and displays them to the world by stretching them across the night sky in massive, glowing, sharply focused and easily readable images, directly over the locale from which they came. Young teens will shriek in wild terror as their confessions and crushes are outed to the world. Thieving Magistrates will cringe and begin packing their saddle bags for an escape from arrest. Some literate and thoughtful citizens may ponder a few awkward meetings in the near future with certain neighbors and relatives. This full, night time sky display of all found secrets may take only a few hours... or from sunset to dawn.
84 The Blessed Hanky of Fire Reversal -
To the unschooled, this small square of fabric will appear to be . . just another handkerchief. To the adventuring owner, it is a camper's cherished friend for life! Priming the item is very straightforward and surprisingly dull. When setting up your overnight camp out in the wilderness, gather HALF as much firewood as you normally would. Soak the handkerchief in water and spread it out in the spot where you would like your campfire.. place your kindling on it . . build the fire normally and set the additional 'feeder' logs and sticks nearby. Over the course of the long night, the fire will burn as it should, giving off as much heat and light as any other campfire. Half-way through the night, as the flames die down and all the gathered wood is consumed . . . an oddity of very pleasing magic will manifest, as you witness the fire begin to burn in reverse. Heat and light continue to emanate from the flames...but the smoke begins to descend and be sucked into the blaze restoring all of the wood as it "De-Burns". In the morning, whisper the words "Archipelago Spoon Brigade" and the fully restored firewood will weave itself into the fabric of the handkerchief, leaving it appearing as a non-descript hanky for easy folding and tucking away. When next you use it, a quick toss to the ground will produce all of the wood you first gathered. It's the little things . . . You know?
85 The Darkness Hating Candles of Emperor Pupsang -

87 The Monstrous Shield of Mickle Might -
Have you ever drawn a lode stone through dry dirt and lifted it up to see millions of tiny little particles stuck to it as if by magic? The power of magnetism inherent in that stone makes minuscule bits of metal in the soil stick to it like a fine layer of fuzz. Now imagine a lode stone as large and flat as this shield ( for 'tis that very thing ) a BILLION times more powerful for a fraction of a second, and capable, through its enchantment, of hovering over your adversary in battle. Fling this shield toward your enemy while shouting its activation word ( "Killit" ). Watch it stop to hover in place above their head. With a sudden clap of explosive sparking energy, it will produce its fearful results. ALL of the nearly invisible flecks, chips, spikes and splinters of metal in the dirt below them will shoot up through their body in the tiniest tick of a second, piercing them from feet to head in a million places. These tiny bits of micro-metal needles will then stick to the shield like bloody mud as your foe drops to the ground. The shield will then spin quickly releasing that ugly gore and float quickly back to your arm. It may be used once per week.

89 The Ancient Ring of Protocol Perversion -
A greeting, and first impression can mean SO much in delicate meetings between nobility, royalty or local high authorities. It may therefore be a brilliant source of amusement to gift this ring to an ambassador or at the very least a spokesperson about to engage in the social niceties of meeting a stranger in a position of great power. The odd and unexpected compulsion built into this ring will completely replace ( in the wearer's mind ) what would normally be a bow, a handshake or even a ceremonial embrace that they would appropriately employ for such a meeting. In its place . . the ring wearer will feel it perfectly friendly, normal and indeed EXPECTED that they should place both hands on the dignitary's face and knead it like dough for thirty seconds. Though it seems a harmless prank to utilize this plain silver ring inset with rubies to witness the awkwardness of the encounter, do bear in mind that WARS have been started throughout its long history across many lands.

The spike will remain for as long as you are engaged in hostilities.
91 The Bye Bye Bauble of Bodily Betrayal -
It looks like a lovely, gold, pinkie-sized pendant shaped like the mythical beasty known as the Ostrich, but it holds an astoundingly effective defense if you are attacked. Confusion in your enemy will take hold as they attempt to approach you in stealthy step, aggressive trot or enthusiastic charge. Invocation of this charm will cause them to move in the exact opposite direction. ( Usually backward. ) Any mobility they attempt will end in the betrayal of their intent by their very own legs. If the creature hovers, or moves about by slinking, glooping, swimming etc. Their locomotion will be reversed entirely. It is worth warning though, that if they have sufficient bodily control and sudden understanding of their momentary curse . . they may move TOWARD you if they are wise enough to attempt moving BACKWARD. The effect lasts from one to four minutes and the charm may only be used once per day.
92 The Weird Whistle of Door Defiling -
It may defy pursuers, confuse stalkers or flummox friends, but this small silver whistle has a strange and unknown reason for existing at all. Its power is impressive, but its effect is mundane and curious for its simplicity. In short, it reverses the hinge placement and jamb on any door you physically pass through. Blow this low-pitched, softly toned whistle as you open any door that swings, whether toward you or away from you . . . close it behind you... and the next individual that follows behind you will be betrayed by their own perception.

94 The Kolo Cloth Hole of Portable Neener Neener -

Wrap this oval of golden fabric around your head, and anything from arrows, to hammers that attempt to harm you will pass harmlessly through as if traversing empty air. Lay it flat against your torso and sword stabs or crossbow bolts will also meet with ZERO resistance and pass completely through in the same manner. The hole it creates in you will be oval shaped and roughly the size of your torso, with a bit of vulnerable border surrounding it. Take care that you do not have your back to allies, as they will be subject to the danger of projectiles intended to strike YOU.

You will be expelled from the small stone, standing directly over it for quick retrieval. WARNING - Only your body will be transported.
