Arrows, bolts and bullets. Most of these are intended as singular-use items to be fired as projectiles from a bow, crossbow, steampunk gun, or whatever other kind of projectile hurling device you can think of.
Arrow of Knight
Ammunition, artifact (requires attunement)
This bronze arrow with white fletching is too long and a little too heavy to be fired accurately with a shortbow. To fire the Arrow of Knight, you must be wielding a longbow or heavy crossbow, and first succeed on a DC 10 Strength check just to string it. You take disadvantage on attack rolls to fire the Arrow of Knight. On a hit, the attack deals 2d10 piercing plus 2d10 radiant damage. A creature slain with the Arrow of Knight cannot be raised as an undead. However, if you can string and let fly -- whether it hits or misses, the arrow will summon a celestial knight in shining armor who will steadfastly defend you. The knight has statistics equivalent to the knight NPC, but it is a celestial, its attacks deal +1d6 extra radiant damage, and it is immune to all attacks by nonmagical weapons. The knight persists for 1 hour, or until it is dismissed as an action by you. The celestial knight acts on its own, defending you against creatures that mean you harm. However, the knight does not obey your commands. The Arrow of Knight may be used repeatedly, but it can only be fired again if it is re-attuned. To attune to the Arrow of Knight, you must hold it in your hands and recite the Knight's Prayer at dawn.
The first recorded appearance of the Arrow of Knight was in the defense of the city of St. Anglos against northern invaders during the Second Age. A scholar of the southron faith has written a treatise laying out the case that the summoned knight is actually the spirit of St. Anglos himself. A more popular tale suggests that St. Anglos bound the soul of a vanquished foe to a simple arrow, and left it with the Duke of the city to be used in its defense during his absence.
Arrow of Missile Attraction
Ammunition, very rare
After a successful attack made with this arrow, the victim of the attack begins to attract missiles. Any projectile that passes within 20ft of the victim has a 33% chance of being redirected towards the victim. Any affected projectile that is not redirected toward the affected victim receives a -3 penalty to it's attack roll against the intended target.
Arrow of Night
Ammunition, very rare
These silver-tipped arrows fletched with owl feathers make no sound upon impact. Instead, when they strike flesh, armor, or stone, their tip bursts in a sphere of darkness (as if the spell). If collected after a battle, there is a 20% chance that the arrow will still be intact and function if re-tipped with silver. To re-tip the arrow, one must melt 10 silver pieces in an iron cup beneath a new moon and dip the arrow in the molten silver.
A well-known tale speaks of Midora the Silent Terror and her brethren of shadow monks using dozens of Arrows of Night to infiltrate and escape from the palace of the Dragon-Emperor on the the imperial family was assassinated.

These orbs are made of hard orange wax and contain a fantastical mixture of pigments inside. Upon impact, the ball bursts, creating any two-dimensional image the user wishes smaller than 5ft square feet. The image can only be destroyed by magical means, or when fades away on its own after 1 hour.
An enchanted arrow made with Phoenix feather fletching. It is magically bound to a small quiver.
Upon impact, the arrow catches fire, and is consumed by the flames at the beginning of your next turn. The arrow's flames do not create heat, do not consume oxygen, and cannot be smothered or quenched. When the arrow is destroyed, it immediately reappears in the container it was magically bound to. If the arrow is somehow set ablaze before firing, it begins the magical process early, immediately reappearing in the bound quiver. After being lit on fire, the maximum firing range is halved. The normal piercing damage of this arrow is replaced with magical force damage, and an additional 1d4 magical fire damage.
This arrow can pull up to 300lbs of weight attached to the arrow for 1d100 feet.
This arrow is exceptionally sharp, with small notches for impaling itself in hard surfaces. When fired, it releases 25 feet of hempen rope behind it.

When used as ammunition, physical damage dealt by this arrow is converted to thunder damage. Alternatively, while outdoors, you may use a bow to fire this arrow into the sky as an action, causing storm clouds to rapidly form. After 12 seconds, these clouds release a torrential downpour of rain lasting for 1d4*10 minutes. The arrow is consumed when used in this way. At any time during the storm’s duration, you may cause a target you can see within 150 feet to be struck by a bolt of lightning, dealing 2d6 lightning damage. This effect may be invoked once per arrow expended.

Creatures in this area must make a Wisdom saving throw of DC 18; creatures that fail the save are incapacitated and have a speed of 0, and cannot be damaged or affected by any additional effects. Objects and projectiles (including time’s arrow) in this area become immovable, and cannot be damaged or targeted by any additional effects. Creatures, objects and projectiles entering this area for the first time become subject to these effects. The arrow’s effect lasts until you choose to end it as a bonus action or until dispelled (DC 22). When the effect ends, the arrow becomes nonmagical.

Ammunition, very rare
This arrow has been exposed to the nether border between our world and the Shadowfell for many harsh weeks. As a result, it deals force damage instead of piercing as it is not entirely corporeal. You may attack a number of targets in a straight line equal to your proficiency modifier, ignore up to 1 total foot of cover between each target before it is stopped, but the attack only deals half damage. Each target's AC is treated as 10 for this attack unless it was already lower.

On a hit, the arrow begins to draining blood from the target’s body out the tail of the arrow, causing it to take 1d6 necrotic damage at the start of the target’s turn until the arrow is removed. If the target has no blood or similar essential body fluid, such as a zombie or earth elemental, this effect is negated.
This crossbow bolt is more akin to a vial of poison than a typical bolt, tipped with fogged glass. Upon impact, by breaking the glass bolt head, it releases a cloud of poisonous vapor in a 10-foot-radius sphere. The cloud spreads around corners and lightly obscures any area it occupies. The cloud lingers in the air for 2d4 rounds, and deals 1d8 Poison damage to anything that enters its space. Other poison types & potencies are known, and will affect the cost & cloud's properties.

To attune to these boots, you must wear them while on a spirit walk. There are three separate trials; you must pass each one in order to attune to the boots. Your DM may use discretion to decide which trial you will perform, how it is initiated and when to allow a second attempt after a failure.

The beast's wounds will slowly fester and surely kill it. DC 14 Animal Handling (Wisdom) to approach the owlbear safely, and cleanse its wounds. On failure, the owlbear attacks and initiative is rolled. The owlbear has 1 HP and 2 failed death saves at the start of combat.

When you do so, the sheath reforms to fit the weapon, and the weapon becomes magical. You may not have more than one weapon paired to the sheath at any given time. The weapon paired to the sheath gains a bonus to attack and damage rolls equal to the bonus to AC given by the shield. You cannot be disarmed while holding both the paired weapon and the shield.
This shield was used by the front line soldiers of the old Legion. Few one-handed melee weapons have been found alongside abandoned Legion equipment, so it is believed that soldiers used these shields as weapons.

Bulwark: Once per day, as an action on your turn, you may cause the shield to grow in size, up to 10 feet wide, 15 feet tall, and 1 foot thick.

Shield, artifact (requires attunement by a character with 14+ strength)
This is a +2 shield that grants resistance to bludgeoning, piercing, and slashing damage. You gain -1 to your intelligence while attuned to this shield. You will automatically fail any stealth checks that rely on remaining silent.
Gordirion "Gordie" is a very egotistical, loquacious and affable shield that will take any opportunity to recall tales of its adventures through the ages. The DM is encouraged to prepare a list of these stories to recall at any time it is inconvenient for the players. Gordirion may repeat stories in a loop; these stories do not have to make sense, or even remain consistent with each other. Gordirion, despite its claims otherwise, is something of a moron. He has no self-awareness, and will constantly drivel on about inane things that nobody cares about.
You may call me "Gordirion", or "Gordie" for short. I am a sentient Honorion derchysium dome of GREAT intelligence. Now that was a lot of words there that you probably don't completely comprehend. Let me explain. I am a dome, a type of smallish, curved round shield often utilized by dwarves. I originally hail from from Honorion; the oldest and most illustrious of all the dwarven holds in the north. This is evidenced by my maker's mark, just behind my handle. I am made from from derchysium, an increasingly rare element that only the mountain dwarves of Honorion understand fully. Derchysium is super-weighted, impossibly dense, and typically metallic orange in hue. As you can plainly see, I am a special derchysium-gold alloy that shines with a particular brilliance! As you may know, I am sentient, meaning that I am capable of free thought, and in this case, speech. Though, I do not understand the mechanism by which my voice is made audible. Now, I shall tell you of how I came to be! My maker was an Honorian dwarf, a smith by trade. His name was "Gordirion", or "Gordie" for short. Call me "Gordirion", or "Gordie" for short. Now, my father, "Gordirion" wished to imbue his finest derchysium-alloy shield with just a hint of intelligence, so that it could become more effective at predicting attacks. Gordirion senior miscalculated the transmutation formula, and accidentally transferred his entire consciousness into me!
Helm of the Returned
Legendary, armour (helmet) (requires attunement by a humanoid that has died previously)
To most, it is a mess of battered bronze that would be impossible to wear. But in the hands of those who have defied death, it is a meticulously crafted helmet with inscriptions of love that only the dead can read. Once attuned, you receive a +2 to your AC. You have advantage on saving throws against spells from the school of necromancy. Undead have disadvantage on attack rolls against you. Once per day, you can cast speak with dead without spending spell slots, or components.
Curse: Return No More - While attuned to the helmet, you cannot remove or unattune it. If you would be killed while attuned to the helmet, you cannot return to life through anything short of a wish. If this curse is removed, you cannot gain any benefits of the helmet of the returned. When you die, a short message of your choice can be added to the inscriptions around the helm.
While death is often the final stop for many on the carousel of life, it is not for all. Through powerful magics, people can return to life, hale and hearty as they have ever been. Though, a curse lingers, despite the love that was put into the original item.
Wondrous item, very rare (requires attunement by a Bard or Warlock)
This colorful cap has a number of charges equal to your Charisma modifier (minimum 1). As a bonus action on your turn, you may expend one charge and tell a joke about, or insult, a creature that is capable of seeing and hearing you. For 1 minute, that creature has disadvantage on all wisdom saving throws made to resist the effects of spells you cast. This cap regains 1 charge every dusk.
While in search of fresh material, a desperate jester poured over every ancient text of jokes he could find. The fool's soul was left bare for ancient evils to manipulate. Some say that the jester's final performance birthed a being of pure malice, that still lurks somewhere between the stars.
Wondrous item, uncommon
While wearing this helmet, which is shaped like the skull of a minotaur, one is able to use the reckless attack ability available to barbarians.
Armor (shield), very rare (attunement required)
This shield has the likeness of a bronze mirror that has been polished for a lifetime. This mirror, though it has seen quite a lot of battle, carries not a single scratch on its front face.
Gaze of the Beloved: During combat, you may choose a melee target that is a creature with at least 6 intelligence. That creature, if capable of sight, must succeed in a DC 14 wisdom saving throw or become enthralled with their own reflection within the shield. If the target succeeds, they cannot become the target of this ability for at least 24 hours. If the target fails, they will become stunned until the end of your next turn. If the target takes any damage while stunned, they must make a constitution (concentration) save against half the damage taken.

Org, the mimic belt
Wondrous item, rare (requires attunement, which consists of befriending org)
This leather belt has large buckle, resembling teeth. This belt is in fact a mimic by the name of Org.
Org has the stats of a normal mimic, with the exception of having 10 intelligence, and 10 wisdom. Org is capable of speech, and fluent in common. Org is friendly toward its owner and will obey most verbal commands that do not pose an obvious threat, such a jumping into lava. Org is rather vain and gullible, and is convinced that he is a sentient magical item created by a god to smite "the bad guys."
Mimicry: Org can turn into other medium or smaller objects that are not mechanical, such as a block of wood, a chest, a pencil, or a shoe. This transformation takes 1 minutes, and requires 30g worth of meat for Org to eat. If asked to become a weapon, Org will only become a short sword, dagger, or greatsword. He will state, "That would diminish my glory." If Org becomes a weapon, his attacks are magical.
Org is the result of a long-dead adventurer casting awaken on a mimic. The adventurer convinced Org that he was a god, and that Org was for the task or doing whatever his wearer said. Org's constant praise to what he thought was an all-powerful deity fed the adventurer's ego to the point where he attempted to kill a legendary dragon by himself.
Plate Armor of the Final Hour
Armor (plate), legendary
This is a set of +2 magical plate armor, and appears as such unless identify is cast upon it. Once the final piece of armor is put on, you will suffer the effects of the armor's curse.
Curse of Steel Crag: You speed is reduced to 5 feet. You cannot voluntarily back down from an enemy once you are within 5 feet of one. The effects of the fear condition cannot cause you to run away from an enemy within 5 feet of you. You cannot be knocked prone while within 5 feet of an enemy. You are unable to use the dodge action while you are within 5 feet of an enemy. This armor is indestructible, except by means of wish.
This armor is all that remains of a mighty order of paladins that was wiped out during the Battle of Steel Crag. Each knight swore a powerful, binding oath that they would not back down in the face of their enemy.
Plate of the Legion
Armor (half-plate or plate), Rare (normal variant), Very Rare (commander variant) (requires attunement)
This steel plate armor is finely crafted, and reforms itself to fit you perfectly. While wearing it, you feel responsible for your allies' comfort and safety, and others feel more inclined to look to you for leadership and advice. You gain advantage on all Charisma checks meant to encourage others, and saving throws to avoid being frightened.
The Legion's Strength: While wearing this armor, you gain a +1 bonus to your AC. This bonus is increased to +2 if you are within 5 feet of a friendly creature, or wielding a Bulwark of the Legion, Conduit of the Legion, Pike of the Legion, or Staff of the Legion, and it is increased to +3 if both of those are true.
Commander Variant: The commander variant of this armor features a silk purple cape and golden trim, and gains the following traits
For the Empire: Allies within 5 feet of you that are wearing armor gain a +1 bonus to AC, and their armor is considered magical if it was not already. This cannot cause armor to have a magical AC bonus greater than +3. Allies within 5 feet of you will also gain advantage on saving throws to avoid being frightened.
Legion-favoring historians believe this reflects the officers' willingness to throw themselves in front of blows meant to hit their soldiers, trusting their armor to protect them, while those who believe the Legion was corrupt and tyrannical say that that trait came about as a result of the opposite, making the officers harder to kill by putting their soldiers between them and danger.
These shields are always in linked pairs. When a melee attack misses you, you can use your reaction to change the target of the attack. Choose a target you can see within 5 feet of the other shield. If one member of a linked pair is destroyed, the other shield becomes a plain shield.

You may use your mouth to hold items, such as a rope while dangling. In addition, your mouth, inside of your throat, and your stomach are all resistant to fire damage. If you chose to make a bite attack, it is an unarmed attack that deals 1d4 + strength modifier bludgeoning damage. This is a thick, syrupy liquid that requires either a special lubricated bottle or straw to consume.
Gnasher refused to release his two-handed maul, even when climbing. Concerned for his friend, Visigrath made a special cocktail that would allow him to hold onto a rope or cliff edge without releasing his weapon. Visigrath did not expect Gnasher to learn how to climb using it, but he did.

Oil of Bartering
Potion, very rare
When applied to any mundane item, that item becomes highly desirable for one hour. Any merchant is willing to purchase the item, and they will be willing to pay as much as double that item's appraised value. When applied to magical items, merchants will be willing to pay 50% more than they would normally pay for the item. This potion is a clear, glittering oil that is usually kept in small, easily concealed vials. One vial usually contains only one application.
Oil of bartering is a tightly regulated and controlled substance. Unfortunately, it is fairly easy to produce, and there is a thriving black market for the product. Which always seems to sell well above cost, for some reason.
Petrified Cyclops Eye

A clay-colored, oblong stone the size of an orc's fist. Holding it causes strange visions to swirl in your head.

Potion of Blending
Potion, very rare
This vial contains a vaguely beige liquid of normal viscosity.

The liquid is watery, luke-warm and nearly tasteless, except for a very slight vanilla flavor.
Consuming the entire potion makes you completely unremarkable to the point of not even really being noticed by others around you.

This potion of raw, wild magic was made by a group of wizard terrorists as a sort of emergency getaway device. The group was destroyed by a brave gang of misfit adventurers, but their signature bomb still lives on.
The bright red viscous liquid in this bottle is considered illegal by many countries, and as such has a opaque glass. When this liquid is ingested or injected (via application to a dagger) the target must make a DC 14 constitution save, and suffer one of the following effects, depending on the version:
Anger: The target enters a state of rage, and gains +3 to all melee damage for two minutes.
Cheerfulness: The target becomes so happy they must make a DC 10 constitution save to notice pain, and must use their action to make the lives of those around them better in a act of happy charity. This lasts for two minutes. This will break a barbarian's rage.
Disgust: This brew must have a small sample of something steeped in it. When the target drinks this, they are disgusted by whatever the sample came from, and must use their actions to destroy the object of their disgust, as one would a horrific spider. This last for one minute.
Fear: The target's speed is increased by 15 feet, and they become frightened of the first creature they see. This lasts for eight minutes, and does not affect creatures that are immune to fear. This will break a barbarian's rage.
Sadness: The target feels a overwhelming feeling of misery and is under the effects of the spell slow for 3 minutes. This will break a barbarian's rage.
This potion is highly illegal, due to the powerful mind altering effects. It still prevails on though, used as a practical joke, a literal happy pill, or in a myriad other uses. It is considered that actors should not eat anything before a performance as good luck, a tradition to prevent being affected with liquid stage fright from a rival.

Vial of Slaad Dust
Wondrous item, common
Slaadiminium, also known as "slaad dust" or "croak", is a narcotic inhaled through the nose or absorbed through the tongue and gums. Colors vary but strains are universal in their texture, which is like that of a fine powder similar to sugar. It is a common misconception that the substance come from the bodies of actual Slaadi. In reality, the name is derived from the parallels drawn between the behaviours of slaadi and abusers of this drug.
You must inhale at least 1/4 oz. of slaad dust to achieve these effects. Inhaling more does not encur any additional effects until the duration from the first 1/4 oz. has ended.
After inhalation, you incur the "poisoned" condition. Charisma checks and saving throws are excluded from the normal effects of the poisoned condition, and are made with advantage. Your initiative becomes 0, while in combat, you regenerate 1 hp per round at the end of your turn. Out of combat, you may roll 1 free hit die. These effects last for 1 hour after inhalation.

While practicing, some students of magic discovered a means to condense and store knowledge into a charm form. These blue drops are crystallized water from The Planar Ocean. All the knowledge of the multiverse eventually flows to its waters. A mortal mind, however, cannot take the strain of sifting through such for long, and thus is rendered dumb for a time afterwards.

DM's discretion on how quickly this curse proceeds, and what, if anything, can be done to reverse the necrosis.

You can also use a bonus action to teleport your hand back onto your wrist.

On a success, the creatures take half as much damage, and they are not pushed away. A creature made of inorganic material such as stone, crystal, or metal has disadvantage on this saving throw. In addition, if used in a confined or acoustic space, such as a room or a corridor, all creatures within 30 feet of the user must a DC12 CON save or be deafened for 1d4 rounds (the user is always immune to this effect). A nonmagical object that isn't being worn or carried also takes the damage if it is in the area of the damaging effect.

Tuo Mainzar's Pearl Ring of Focus
Ring, legendary (requires attunement by a creature that can cast spells with some spellcasting ability)
The grey pearl within this ring is very loosely fitted. Any character with jeweler's tools, and expertise with those tools, can easily remove the pearl and set it within a different piece of jewelry. The pearl itself is wrinkly, almost lumpy, and oblong.
Focus of Tuo Mainzar: Once attuned, this pearl allows you to maintain concentrations on up to two spells at once, for up to one round within combat or one minute outside of combat. Any concentration checks will apply and be rolled separately for each spell. When you cast your second concentration spell, you should specify which spell is being cast through the ring; that spell has advantage on the concentration save. When you only have one spell you are concentrating on, you make all spell concentration saves with advantage.
Tuo Mainzar was an eccentric but subpar mage with an inferiority complex. He was particularly envious of his old academy rival, Juan Salathar, who consistently outperformed him in evaluations. Mainzar spent a large amount of time attempting to craft a sentient artifact that would prove his superiority, but also tried to weave a feeblemind curse into the item so he could, in one stroke, prove his superiority and eliminate a rival. Unfortunately, Mainzar's mastery of transmutation was not what he thought it was, and the neither the sentience nor the curse fully manifested in the item. Mainzar passed without ever realizing the power of his creation. Etched on the bottom of the pearl is the phrase Mainzar hoped to utter when he dispatched Salathar: "Tuo Mainzar: better than Juan".
Ring, very rare
This is a very ornate, and ostentatious ring. The large topaz within the complicated setting hides a very minute switch.
Store Cantrip: As an action, you may press that switch, and cast a cantrip to store that cantrip within the ring.
Use Cantrip: The most recent cantrip stored within the ring may be cast as a bonus action by pressing the switch. The cantrip from the ring will use the same spell save DC, spell attack bonus and spellcasting ability of the original caster. This ring does not require attunement. With proper manipulation, you can even set it up so that the cantrip is triggered by by mechanical means, such as opening a box or stepping on a pressure plate. You may charge it with a new cantrip each time.
While the fabricator was undoubtedly trying to create a Ring of Spell Storing, an error in production or damage after the fact caused this ring to continuously charge and discharge magic whenever it forms a complete circle- Effectively casting its spell every six seconds or so. To disable it, a notch was cut in the ring. Pressing the switch completes the arcane circuit, and allows the cantrip to be cast. These rings, though gaudy, are highly prized by warlocks.
Rods, Staves and Wands
Wands are the smallest of these, usually being about 1 ft long and narrow. Rods are the next largest, about 3 ft long and 3⁄4 in thick. Staves are the largest, usually being 6 ft long and about 2 in thick. Most of these devices use charges. Should a device reach zero charges, it will usually disintegrate, thus rendering recharging impossible. Taken from "SimpleDnD" by "AJBollinger,Inc"
Rod, legendary (requires attunement by a wizard or sorcerer)
At the start of your turn, if you are able to take an action, you may choose to enter an "Arcane Flow State". The flow state lasts for four rounds, or until it is broken.
Arcane Flow State: While in this state, you may use your bonus action to cast a spell you have prepared using an available spell slot (in addition to any spells you cast with your action). While in this state, you must attempt to cast at least two spells of first level, or greater, every round. If you do not cast two spells of first level of greater in a single round, at the start of your turn the Arcane Flow State breaks. Upon breaking the Arcane Flow State, you immediately take two levels of exhaustion. If the Arcane Flow State terminates naturally (after four rounds), you recover one spell slot for each spell level you currently are able to cast.
This simple rod is made of an unidentifiable metal with fine, sinuous patterns engraved into the surface. Activating the rod allows a user to quickly and efficiently channel an enormous amount of arcane power outwards, at the risk of burning themselves out.
Conduit of the Legion
Wand, uncommon (normal variant), rare (beacon variant) (requires attunement by a sorcerer, warlock, or wizard)
While you are holding this wand and within 5 feet of a friendly creature, this wand is a +1 spellcasting focus. If that ally is wielding a Bulwark of the Legion, Conduit of the Legion, Staff of the Legion, or Pike of the Legion, the spell attack bonus becomes +2 and your spell save DC is increased by 2 instead.
The Beacon Variant also has the following features:
Spell Synergy: Whenever you cast a spell that targets only yourself, you may also target another ally within 5 feet of you with that spell. At the start of your turn, if that ally is not within 5 feet of you, the spell's effects end for them. When the spell ends, the spell's effects end for both you and the ally.
Light of the Legion: After casting a spell, you may hold the conduit into the air to have the beacon glow brightly and create a pillar of light going up 100 feet into the air from the beacon. While active, the beacon casts a 30 foot radius of bright light and 30 foot radius of dim light around you, for 1 minute or until you lower the conduit at any time. The beacon and the pillar of light are visible from up to 5 miles away during the day and 10 miles away during the night. You may choose the color of the light, and change it whenever you cast another spell while the beacon is active.
These wands were produced for a once-unstoppable army. It is theorized that the Legion had a relatively large number of arcane spellcasters among their ranks, although no spellbooks or other arcane foci have been found alongside Legion equipment. The more arcane-inclined historians have taken to calling these "Conduits" rather than "Wands".
Wand, very rare (requires attunement)
This sleek wooden wand is reinforced with metal bands inscribed with runes, and has a grip at the base. This wand has 1d8 charges and regains 1d6 charges at the next dawn, or whenever an opponent is defeated with this wand during a duel.

The wand becomes a +1 spellcasting focus. You may expend charges as an action or reaction (as if casting counterspell) to cast the spells on the following table:
Parry: As a reaction, you may use charges of the wand to reduce the attack roll of a single-target spell targeting you, reducing the roll by 1 per charge spent.
If during an active duel all of the wand's charges are expended, and you are ever more than 150 feet from your opponent, the wand will become permanently inert. The wand will also become permanently inert if it runs out of charges, and the opponent is affected by a spell from a source other than you.

After attunement, the wand changes according to how the attunement trial went. DMs, use discretion for determining how this trial goes.
- If you face the storm, standing on your feet without fear, the wand becomes an oak wand.
- If you succumb to fear and seek shelter, the wand becomes a reed wand.
- If, by chance you are chosen by the storm gods, and survive being blessed by their "electric touch", the wand becomes a storm wand.

As he worked, he was forced to continue on in the wind, thunder and rain. When the clouds parted in the morning, the wizard beheld a powerful new wand. Rumors circulate that the storm to trigger the wand's trandformation does not have to be a literal storm. Turmoil of the heart has also been known to trigger the transformation within the wand.

Finally, the duration is a random die roll of 1d4+1, but will last for Rounds, Hours, Days, or the effect is Instantaneous or Permanent.
This is my wand. There are many like it, but this one is mine. My wand is my best friend. It is my life. I must master it as I must master my life. Without me, my wand is useless. Without my wand, I am useless. I must cast my wand true. I must cast straighter than my enemy who is trying to kill me. I must crit him before he crits me. Before God, I swear this creed. My wand and I are the defenders of my party. We are the masters of our enemy. We are the saviors of my life. So be it, until victory is Arneson's and there is no enemy, but peace!

The Illusionist's Wand
Wand, legendary (requires attunement)
Any illusion spell cast with this wand expends a spell slot one level lower than would normally be required to cast that spell. Additionally, enemies have disadvantage when perceiving illusions created with this wand. This wand is made of simple darkwood and feels as light as quill wet with ink.
This wand was pilfered from a tomb off off the coast of Valoria. The stone-work and architecture of the crypt dates back to the late 3rd age, and it is unmistakably of Drow design. Some more hopeful arcanists think this could be the lost tomb of Duriel, The Traitor, but the numerous magical traps still armed inside make this hypothesis unlikely.
Reliquary Rod of Saint Dismas
Unique Rod, legendary (requires special attunement)
Only a Grave domain cleric may attune to this rod. Attunement requires that the cleric meditate for one night while holding the rod. At the end of the process, Saint Dismas will appear and judge wether or not the cleric is worthy. If the cleric is unworthy, Saint Dismas will send the rod to another to be judged.
“This reliquary rod is made of steel, two feet long and has holy scriptures carved on the outside. It’s hollow and holds a relic, the radius bone of Saint Dismas.
This is a +2 spellcasting/religious focus, once attuned. This rod may also be used as a +1 mace, or +2 against undead targets. The rod has a maximum of 8 charges. It regains 1D6+2 charges at dawn, so long as you have spent at least 1 hour in prayer, or other service to the injured and dying. If the last charge is spent, you must roll a d20. On a roll of 1, Saint Dismas recalls the artifact. You may expend charges to cast the following spells at their base level, without expending spell slots or components.
|Detect poison or disease||1|
|Speak with dead||3|
Intervention of Saint Dismas: You expend 8 charges and say a prayer to call Saint Dismas to your aid. The DM may have discretion on wether or not this actually works. Your DM may choose to treat this as a "Divine Intervention", or they may have Saint Dismas show up in the form of an angel (Deva, Planetar or Solar). Saint Dismas may refuse to lend his aid, depending upon your situation or if he is otherwise busy.
Saint Dismas was raised to sainthood by his God, following his faithful sacrifice against a fearsome enemy. Dismas' soul was raised into an angel, while his mortal remains were fashioned into powerful reliquary artifacts.
The Rod of Lazarus Dagon
Rod, very rare (requires attunement)
This rod is made from a thick and twisted ironwood branch that comes to three points almost like a wooden talon. Red crackling energy arcs from the center of the talon-like tip.
This rod has 7 charges that are not recovered. As an action, you may expend one charge to cast various lightning spells. The spell that is cast will change, depending upon how much time is spent charging up the energy of the rod.
|Spell||Rounds Spent Charging|
|Lightning bolt (3rd level)||0|
|Chain lightning (6th level)||3|
|Storm sphere (8th level)||10|
Lazarus Dagon was a particularly fearsome evoker. However, his luck ran out one day when he was ambushed by grou of red slaadi.
Rod of Returning
Rod, uncommon, rare or very rare
A cylindrical iron rod about two feet in length; arcane sigils inlaid in electrum spiral around it from top to bottom.
This rod must be linked to a single, permenant teleportation circle. This rod may become linked to a new teleportation circle by leaving it within the exact center of the circle for 1 hour. The uncommon variant of this rod has a range of 100 miles. The rare version has unlimited range, so long as you are on the same plane of existence. The very rare variant requires attunement, and is capable of interdimensional travel. While you are holding this rod, you may use an action to activate the teleportation spell. The rod will instantly transport you, and up to 5 willing creatures within 5 feet of you, to the linked teleportation circle, or the nearest unoccupied space.
Distributed through out the kingdom's remote watchtowers, a rod of returning allows the watchmen to instantly retreat or be recalled to a designated garrison.
Rod of Rodent
While holding this rod, you may use an action and say the command word to transform the rod into a Giant Rat. The rat behaves as it normally would, and is not inherently friendly towards you. Whenever the Giant Rat is reduced to 0 hit points or caught inside any effect that dispels magic, it transforms back into the rod. The rod may not be changed back into a rat until the next dawn.
A promising enchanting student suffered a terrible accident while attempting to create staves of animal summoning. He was found dead in his dorm with a giant weasel, a giant snake, and a giant rat fighting over his corpse; these items were discovered when school security arrived to deal with the hostile creatures.
Staff, very rare (requires attunement)
This is +2 staff that deals an additional 1d6 damage on top of any spell that targets an enemy creature. This staff has 2 charges and regains 1 charge every dawn. When the staff runs out of charges, it turns to ash. As an action, you may say the word "fire" in Ignan, and spend 1 charge to summon a fire elemental. This elemental heeds your commands and, and views you as an ally. It will disappear disappears once it reaches 0 hp, or at sunrise.
A charcoal staff that has strange Ignan runes on it. It's hot to the touch and leaves soot on your hand.
Staff of Eyes
Rare staff, (requires attunement by a spellcaster)
This staff resembles a length of jagged purple crystal covered with carvings of eyes. All who can see it feel as if they are being watched.
Sight of Yog-Sothoth: Once per day, you can use a bonus action touch the staff to your head to gain truesight in a 60ft radius for 1 minute. If this reveals any creature within the ethereal plane, you can use an action to attempt to rip them into your plane. They must make a wisdom saving throw against your spell save dc. On a failure, they are forced into whichever plane you are currently residing in, and cannot use any form of planar travel for 1 minute.
Curse: When the truesight from this weapon wears off, you take 2d6 psychic damage, as strange visions besiege your mind. Each time you use this, and for an hour after, you feel as if something unnatural is watching you. With each use, you become more and more paranoid and distrustful of others, even those who you would call friend. If this damage reduces you to 0 hit points, you are instantly killed as tentacles reach out from the ground and envelop you, leaving only the staff behind. If you are immune to psychic damage, you are immune to this curse. You can only be resurrected by means of wish.
All that was found of the original owner was this staff, and a journal that detailed a rapid descent into madness.
Staff of the Legion
Staff, uncommon (requires attunement by a bard, cleric, or druid)
Battlefield Medic: While holding this staff, you may expend charges to cast the following spells without components or spell slots, use your own your spellcasting ability modifier: healing word (1 charge), mass healing word (3 charges). If you wish to increase the level at which this spell is cast, you may expend 1 extra charge per level.
When you cast a spell using a spell slot of 1st level or higher while holding the staff, and you are within 5 feet of another friendly creature wielding a Pike of the Legion, Bulwark of the Legion, Conduit of the Legion, or Staff of the Legion, the staff regains 1 charge, up to a maximum of 5. This staff also regains 1d4+1 charges at dawn, up to a maximum of 5.
If you use the last charge of the staff, roll a d20. On a 1, the staff explodes with positive energy, lost forever, and every creature within 60 feet regains 3d4 hit points. The same effect occurs if you manage to break the staff.
These staves were created for an ancient, well-equipped military, known to historians only as "The Legion". The veteran healers were given these staves to help them continue healing and encouraging soldiers during their long battles.
Staff of Panic
Staff, uncommon (requires attunement by a bard, cleric, sorcerer, warlock, or wizard)
This staff has 3 charges. While holding it, you can use charges to cast the following spells without using spell slot. The staff regains 1d4-1 charges at dawn. If, after regaining charges, the staff has 0 charges, roll a d20. On a 1, the staff vanishes in a flash of light, making the sound of a startled scream.
This staff's head features the holy symbol of a forgotten Goblin God of Bravery, who has not been worshiped in a thousand years or more. Over the years, the disappearance of this god has changed both the Goblin race and this staff; they've become cowardly and weak, and this staff has become a shadow of its former self, aiding cowards in surviving and escaping from danger, instead of charging forward into the fray.
Staff of Reason
Staff, very rare (requires special attunement)
To attune, you must be a halfling with intelligence or wisdom of at least 16. Attunement requires a nomination of the wielder by at least three other halflings by way of a democratic vote.
The staff of reason is 4 feet long and made of twisted hickory, with notches at the top. It is crowned with a magically toughened candle that always remains lit. You may use this staff as both an arcane focus, and a magical quarterstaff that deals an additional 1 point of fire damage. Upon attuning to this staff, you become proficient in insight and investigation. The candle sheds bright light in a 5-foot radius and dim light for an additional 5 feet.
Light of Reason: All creatures within the light radius of this staff are under the effects of sanctuary and zone of truth.
Reasonable Discourse: Once per day, you may use the staff to cast one of the following spells without consuming any components or spell slots comprehend languages or calm emotions.
A staff of reason is ceremonially granted to the leaders of halfling communities. It is a symbol as well as a tool to help administer justice, resolve conflicts and guide the community towards peace and a greater good.
Staff of Retaliation
Staff, very rare (requires attunement by a non-spellcaster)
A black iron staff tipped with a closed, gauntleted fist. This staff can be wielded as a magic quarterstaff that grants a +1 bonus to attack and damage rolls made with it.
Retaliation: This staff has 5 charges. When you are the target of a singular target spell cast by a hostile creature, as a reaction, you may use charges equal to the spell's level to cast the same spell back at your enemy. The DC is (8 + your proficiency bonus + your Strength or Dexterity modifier.) You are still affected by the original spell cast. The staff regains 1d6-1 charges at dawn. If the staff has 0 charges, roll a d20. On a 1, the staff splinters and shatters.
Created by a long-lost order of mage hunters, these staves were used to disguise the order's assassins as mages, as well as turn their magic against them.
Staff of Senditt the Fool
Staff, rare (requires attunement by a spellcaster)
This black wooden staff is unremarkable, except for the way it is lightly tapered to resemble a club, rather than a caster's implement. The staff regains 1d4 expended charges daily at dawn (maximum of 4). If all charges are expended, roll a 1d20. On a 1, the staff is launched 900 miles in a random direction.
*Senditt's Genius: While holding the staff, you may expend one charge to cast the catapult spell on an object within range.
Senditt's Folly: If you are hit by a medium or smaller creature with a melee attack, you may choose use your reaction to expend two charges to cast catapult on that creature. The target must make a strength saving throw equal to your spell save DC, or be launched as a projectile as per the effects of the spell. If the target strikes a solid object such as a wall within the spells range, they take an additional 3d8 bludgeoning damage. If the target succeeds the saving throw by 7 or more, you are launched away from the creature, and subjected to the same effects.
This staff was constructed by a tinker gnome named Senditt, for the purposes of offering gnomish housewives access to basic telekinesis to assist with chores. Unfortunately, Senditt was quite mad and very over-enthusiastic. After several disastrous public demonstrations, he attracted interest from the New Legion's research division.
Staff of Snake
While holding this staff, you may use an action and say the command word to transform the staff into a Giant Poisonous Snake. The snake behaves as it normally would, and is not friendly towards you. Whenever the snake is reduced to 0 hit points or caught inside any effect that dispels magic, it transforms back into the staff. The staff may not be changed back into a snake until the next dawn.
A promising enchanting student suffered a terrible accident while attempting to create staves of animal summoning. He was found dead in his dorm with a giant weasel, a giant snake, and a giant rat fighting over his corpse; these items were discovered when school security arrived to deal with the hostile creatures.
Staff of Staffing
Help Wanted: Once per day, you may speak this phrase to summon a random hireling complete with resume, salary demands, and a desired length of employment. The hireling's age, sex, race, personality and fitness for the job is left up to the DM's discretion.
You're Hired: A contract, with the negotiated salary and job description, will appear, ready for the both of you to sign. Signing the contract will bind the hireling to your service. The hireling is never required to perform duties that are not listed in the contract.
Sorry, but we're going in a different direction: If you do not wish to hire the hireling, they may be dismissed with this command.
A wizard, tired of having to leave his tower to find people to hire for various tasks, created this staff out of an old walking stick. Using a complex combination of divination and conjuration magic, the staff searches the land for people looking for jobs and transports them to the summoner's location.
Staff, legendary (requires attunement)
This staff is made of coral, and mounted with a spiked ebony conch that has a menacing appearance. It is occupied by a flamboyantly colored snail that occasionally pokes its head out. Placing this conch to your ear doesn't seem like a good idea.
This is a +1 staff. Additionally, any Evocation spell that uses a spell slot acts as if it were cast at one spell slot higher.
Conus Magus: Once per long rest, a bonus action, you may tear the snail from its shell and eat it. The next evocation spell cast within one minute is charged with unstable energy. Use your normal spell attack/spell save DC, then roll a D20 to determine the snails effect:
|1 - 5||The spell backfires. Roll damage, you receive half of the damage.|
|6 - 10||Reroll any 1s on your damage dice.|
|11 - 15||Reroll any 1s or 2s on the damage dice for the affected spell.|
|16 - 19||All damage dice for the affected spell are maximized.|
|20||All damage dice for the affected spell are maximized and it does not consume a spell slot.|
If the spell misses, the unstable energy dissipates with no effect. The snail regenerates after a long rest, but has a bad attitude about the whole situation.
Umberlee creates these staves as a reward for exceptional service. The power to augment magic comes from the snail within. They used to be common, but they were hunted to near extinction to empower Sahuagin shamans.
Staff, legendary (requires attunement by a non-lawful character)
This staff looks like a worn walking stick, with a grip that feels perfect for your hand. Once attuned, the staff’s length adjusts based on the height of the wielder, so that it serves as a perfect walking stick. Along the length of the staff is an inscription:
One Foot in Front of the Other: While attuned to the staff, you may cast expeditious retreat at will as an action, and can travel on foot for twice as long as normal before gaining levels of exhaustion. You may use an action to expend 1 or more charges to cast one of the following spells on willing targets only.
|Freedom of movement||4|
|Find the path||6|
Wanderlust. If you spend more than two weeks in the same general area (such as a city), Wanderlust will become unattuned and teleport to a random location. Wanderlust recovers all charges every dawn, provided you spend the night in a location you have never slept before.
This staff was once the walking stick of a famous ranger. Many travelers claim to have once wielded the staff, or have seen it shortly before it disappeared before their eyes.
Wand of Herring
Wand, very rare (requires attunement)
This red wand appears as a "simple" +1 wand of spellcasting, even if identify is cast upon it. This wand will appear as such, until it becomes attuned to someone, or unless a wish spell is used to identify it. In most places, these spells are highly illegal contraband.
Red Herring: Once per day, you may use this wand to cast a very heavy illusion upon a corpse. No matter how the corpse actually died, it will appear to have died of one of the following causes (your choice) drowning, heart attack, or choking on a ham sandwich. This illusion lasts for 5 days, or until it is dispelled by dispel magic cast at a minimum spell level of 6.
"In Neverwinter City, the dedicated detectives who investigate these vicious crimes are members of an elite paladin corps known as the Sorcery Victims Unit... These are their stories."
Wand of the Librarian
Wand, uncommon (requires attunement by someone who can read)
This birch wand is carved with fine details of books neatly organized on shelves. It smells faintly of books.
This item has 5 charges and regains 1d4 +1 charges daily at dawn. While holding this wand you can use your action and say a command word to activate one of its properties.
Organize: As an action you say the command words "Organize by" and utter a phrase up to 10 words in length, causing the wand to magically sort up to 50 non-living, non-sentient objects each no larger than 5ft x 5ft and weighing no more than 10lbs, into a neat row on a desired surface.
Search Term: As an action, you say the command words "Search term" and utter a phrase up to 5 words in length, causing the wand to search for a specified term in a single book. Each appearance of the term will be marked by a small slip of paper that materializes between the correct pages.
Shhh: As an action you can say the command word "shh" and expend a charge to cast silence.
This wand was created as a gift for a librarian.
Wand of Pies
Wand, very rare
The wand has seven charges. While holding it and pointing the tip at a target, you can use an action to expend one charge. The wand regains 1d4 charges at dawn. If the final charge is expended, roll a d10. On a 1-9, the wand becomes inert.
The charge fires off a 6" diameter pie at a within 60 feet. Roll proficiency + dexterity bonus against the target's AC. The pie does absolutely no damage, but on a natural 20 the target is blinded until they spend an action clearing the pie out of their face. The pie lasts for five minutes, until dispelled, or until eaten. The type of pie is determined by rolling on the following table.
The first wand of pies was created by a god of mischief and pranks. As is usual with such gods, the word quickly spread. It typically makes appearances in or around the first day of the fourth month of a particular year, as that is a sacred day for at least seven trickster gods.
Wand of Weasel
While holding this wand, you may use an action and say the command word to transform the wand into a Giant Weasel. The weasel behaves as it normally would, and is not friendly towards you. Whenever the weasel is reduced to 0 hit points or caught inside any effect that dispels magic, it transforms back into the wand. It may not be changed back into a weasel until the next dawn.
A promising enchanting student suffered a terrible accident while attempting to create staves of animal summoning. He was found dead in his dorm with a giant weasel, a giant snake, and a giant rat fighting over his corpse; these items were discovered when school security arrived to deal with the hostile creatures.
Wand of Wimpering
This wand contains 3 charges of the spell command of which only the command word "Grovel" can be used. The target is required to make a wisdom saving throw, DC 12. Each use expends 1 charge. The wand replenishes 1+ 1d4 charges at dawn.
"Never underestimate a good grovel. Goblins love it, Kobolds love it. Now you love it. Is good deal, I swear!" -Kokoshkolov, Half-orc salesman.
Rod, rare (requires attunement by a Cleric, Druid, or Paladin)
This 3' rod is crafted from a single large fishbone. Its surface is poked, pitted, scaled, and scarred, yet seems to conform the the grip of any who hold it. One end the rod is carved in the form of a toothy fish's head, the other bears an assortment of small glass orbs that glimmer like ghostly lures or black pearls in dim light.
This Rod has 5 charges. It regains 1d4+1 charges each day at sunset. While holding the rod, you may cast cure wounds for 1 charge, and lesser restoration for 2 charges without consuming spell slots or components. The wounds cured by this rod heal back with pale, almost sickly white flesh that always seems slightly moist to the touch.
Curse: After a character has been healed by this rod, if the total amount of healing they have received from this item exceeds 40 HP, they must make a DC 13 Charisma saving throw. On a failure, they begin a month long transformation into a Kuo-Toa. This effect cannot be ended without the aid of greater restoration or similar magic.
This item was crafted by the fish peoples of the deeps as a tool to first draw supplicants with healing magics, and then to bolster their forces with the resulting transmuted wretches. Who knows what dark god would condone the creation of such an insidious relic.
The Winter Staff
Staff, legendary (requires special attunement)
An eerie chill emanates from the iron crescent moon at the top of this gnarled black oak staff, mounted to the wood by tentacle-esque roots that grasp the moon tightly, as if they had grown around it. The wood is dry and cold, yet glistens as if wet, and feels heavy, as if waterlogged.
Once attuned, this staff acts as a +3 spellcasting focus for a druids, warlock or wizard. You cannot suffer the effects of extreme cold, and you become resistant to cold damage. Additionally, the staff has 8 charges, regaining 1d4 at midnight, which can be expended for the effects listed below.
Grasp of Winter: You may expend 1 or more charges to upgrade the damage dice of spells that deal cold damage that have been cast using the staff. One charge per level of the spell that has been cast e.g. cone of cold cast at base level of 5 would consume 5 charges and deal 8d10 cold damage rather than 8d8.
*Winter's Bounty: You may expend 1 or more charges to regain a spell slot of a level equal to the number of charges expended.
Rage of the Winter: You may expend 1 or more charges to make a ranged (60 ft) or melee spell attack roll as part of the attack Action, dealing 3d6 cold damage at 1 charge, increasing by 1d6 for every additional expended charge above 1. If the target has any spell slots, they must make a Wisdom saving throw against your spell save DC. On a success, there is no additional effect. On failure, the target loses a spell slot equal to the level expended by the wielder. If they don't have a spell slot as high as the number of charges expended by the wielder, the target loses 1 spell slot of their highest level.
Special Attunement Rules:
The staff's magic can only be unlocked by a deity, warlock patron, or other unearthly power, who must be associated with elemental cold in some way. For example, The Queen of Air and Darkness could grant a Fey Pact warlock the powers of the staff, or The Kraken may reach up from the crushing frozen depths of Davey Jones Locker to unlock its powers for a sea witch It favors. However, the staff's powers may only be granted in exchange for payment of the price: Blood, Magic, or Soul.
The Blood Price
WOULD YOU GIVE HALF OF YOUR LIGHT
The Blood Price is a visceral, physical payment. If you choose this form of payment, the entity who is granting the powers of the staff will immediately and painfully tear out one of your eyes. This deals 1d12 piercing damage that overcomes resistance and immunity. The eye cannot be regenerated by any means other than wish. You will disadvantage on perception skill checks that rely upon sight. Additionally, you have disadvantage on persuasion skill checks if your face can be seen (This disadvantage is negated if you're speaking to a creature whose culture honors scars, such as orcs).
The Magic Price
OR ALL OF YOUR DARKNESS
The Magic Price is a piece of the mage's own power, ripping away your access to certain natural and arcane powers. If your choose this form of payment, the entity who is granting the powers of the staff grabs the your shadow by the neck, tearing it away from you. You can no longer gain the benefits of any feature, spell, or effect that allows you to see in the dark. You will lose access to darkvision of any kind (such as the devil's sight invocation and racial darkvision abilities). You will also lose the ability to cast spells that create darkness or summon shadows (such as darkness and shadow blade). This can only be undone by wish.
The Soul Price
WOULD YOU GIVE YOUR LIFE, AFTER DEATH
The Soul Price is the binding of a pact. This deal cannot be brokered by one who already has levels of warlock, as their soul has a already been bought and paid for. If you choose this form of payment, the entity who is granting the powers of the staff marks your soul. When you die, your spirit will be sent to your new master, to do with as they please. The player and DM may decide that this grants a level of Warlock, or simply allow this to be a flavorful role-playing choice. Additionally, you will always ping as the alignment of your new master, whenever you are under the effects of spells or abilities that detect alignment. This pact can only be undone by wish, which will earn the eternal ire of your patron.

Longsword, very rare, (requires attunement)
This longsword has a curved blade made of pitch black, brittle obsidian. The handle of this blade is made of thick, white bandage-like material that protects your hands from the extremely sharp sword. The non-traditional crossguard is a large, weighted sphere that redirects blows away from your hands. Inside the pommel of the blade is a small gem that "floats" inside of an empty space, rather than being held in by a more mundane gem setting. The jet gem seems to absorb the light around it into a small point.

This ancient weapon is said to have been crafted by island dwelling warrior-mages. Although, by what means these mages managed to combine delicate working of obsidian and their magic is of some mystery.
Bow, uncommon (requires attunement)
This silver and green shortbow is lightweight and elegant; you feel an energetic sense of purpose when you wield it. When you take the Attack action with this bow, you can use a bonus action to make one extra attack with it. (A ranged equivalent of dual-wielding)
Agripina was a local hunter, thrown into mourning by the death of her daughter at the claws of a werewolf. Determined to avenge her daughter's death, she set out into the forests to hunt down the beasts. Swiftly, coldly and efficiently, she destroyed them.

She locks herself away every full moon; her misery will only end once her revenge is complete.

Axe of the Minoan Bull
Greataxe, legendary (Requires attunment by a barbarian)
This is a +3 greataxe. Until attuned, the axe will appear old and rusty, but upon attunment, it will clean up and become a beautiful, double-edged greataxe. This weapon has 4 charges, and gains an additional charge for every 2 barbarian levels after 14 (for a total of 3 additional charges at level 20). While raging, you may expend one charge as a bonus action. When you expend a charge you let out a mighty roar, dealing 1d10 + your strength modifier psychic damage to 1 creature of your choice within 30 feet of you. That creature must also succeed a DC16 wisdom saving throw, or be frightened of you for 1 minute. Once attuned to this weapon, the attuned will slowly take on aspects of The Minotaur of Crete. This will be difficult to notice at first.
Labyrinth Wanderer: Once per 3 long rests, you may call upon the memories of the previous owners of this axe, and may cast major image to create a miniature version of The Labyrinth of Crete.
Curse of the Minotaur: This is a cursed weapon. The attuned will grow hair at a slightly faster rate, feet will begin to become shorter and wider turning into hooves, and after 1d10 weeks the attuned will sprout horns. DM's discretion for noticing these changes, and how they will affect your player's racial stats. Work with your player on this.
The Axe of the Minoan Bull was wielded by the famed and feared Minotaur of Crete. When the Minotaur was slain in the labyrinth that was his home and his prison for many years, some of his memories were left imprinted in the axe. Whenever someone has tried to wield this axe and is of a race that is not a Minotaur, they have begun to change into a Minotaur themselves.
Basilisk's Bite, Spear of the Beloved
Spear, rare (requires attunement by a Monk or Fighter)
+1 Spear. On a melee hit, the target makes a DC13 constitution save. On a failed save, the target is afflicted by the flesh to stone spell. Subsequent hits to the same target will increase the DC by +1 per hit. You can sense this spell take hold, as a fisherman would sense tension on their line.

Disgusted with himself and the world he created, Thon struck down his beloved with this very spear.
Longsword, uncommon (requires attunement by a non-Lawful aligned character)
Visually, this sword is similar to your typical longsword. The blade, however, is matte grey in color, not appearing particularly sharp. When wielded with both hands, the blade feels heftier than might be anticipated by a one handed grip. This longsword has a Versatile (2d6) property. Once per long rest, a character attuned to this sword may cast "Protection from Evil and Good".
These swords were once mass-produced for use by the mortal armies against the horrors of the magic and supernatural worlds. As the wilds were tamed and cities rose up, swords turned to plowshares. They were smelted into ingots and rusted in the rain. Some, however, were kept. On the mantle, under the bed, hidden away between cupboards and crawlspaces.
This longsword looks like a normal sword, but will feel uncomfortable in the hand of any creature wielding it. It may feel too heavy or too light, or unbalanced. Whatever the problem is, it does not feel like an effective fighting weapon. No one is proficient with this weapon. This weapon somehow critically hits on a natural 1 as well as a natural 20. If a natural 1 is rolled, roll a 1d6 on the table below to determine what additional effect happens. This weapon is otherwise the same as an ordinary longsword.
|1||Your strike lands perfectly, but when pulling the weapon from the wound, it slips in your hand and hits you too. Both you and the target take damage from this attack.|
|2||The force of the attack causes the weapon to fly out of your hand and land (1d4 x 5) feet away in a random direction.|
|3||The force of your swing causes you to overbalance and you slip and fall prone.|
|4||A solid hit, but to the wrong target. This attack hits a random creature (including allies) other than the intended target within 10ft of the weapon. If there are no other creatures within 10 ft, you kill a random tiny CR 0 beast of the DM's choice (such as a fly or rat) that happened to be wandering by, minding its own business.|
|5||The weapon becomes stuck in the target. To pull it free, you or another creature must use an action to make a DC 10 Athletics check to pull it free.|
|6||The force of your swing cause you to spin in a half circle. You are now facing away from your target and feeling a bit dizzy. The next attack by the target against you has advantage.|
Short Sword, very rare (requires attunement)
The blade is actually a thin chunk of dark stone that has a faint sickly green edge to it. Any damage dealt by this weapon cannot be enhanced through magical means or class features. This weapon, despite being the rough size and shape of a short sword, does not possess the finesse or light quality. When you deal damage with this weapon, your must succeed on a DC 17 charisma save or become incapable of recovering hitpoints until combat has ceased. In addition, if the target is reduced to 0 hitpoints by this weapon, it cannot be brought back to life by any means short of wish.

Blades of the Dervish
Shortswords, rare (requires attunement)
These ornate shortswords have sleek, sweeping blades with sapphires embedded into their hilts. While wielding them, you feel light on your feet, and feel an urge to dance to a fast beat. You gain a +1 bonus to attacks and damage while wielding both of these shortswords. While wielding both swords, your movement speed per round is increased by 10 feet. When you use a bonus action to make a second attack with these weapons, you may use any remaining movement this turn to move to a new target for the attack. Attacks of opportunity made against you when moving in this way are made at disadvantage. When you spend a bonus action to make an attack against a second target in the same turn, that attack deals an additional 1d6 slashing damage, and is a critical hit on a 19-20.
These swords are used by honored guardians of a city hidden in the sands of the Korian desert. Their wielders dance between their opponents, the image of grace and the specters of death.
This is a +2 longsword with the finesse property.
Lust for Power: This wicked blade has a thirst for blood, and grows stronger the more it consumes. For each enemy killed with this weapon, Bloodlust will deal an additional +2 damage. This effect lasts indefinitely. In addition, after an enemy is killed using this weapon, you regain HP equal to the current amount of bonus damage stacked on Bloodlust. If an enemy is killed by a critical hit with this weapon, Bloodlust gains a bonus of +10 damage instead of +2.
Curse - Eternal Bloodthirst: This sword's thirst for blood must be quenched. At the end of your turn, if you have not dealt damage to a creature with Bloodlust, you will take damage equal to 1/2 of the current damage bonus on Bloodlust, rounded down. After each combat encounter, if you did not kill a creature with this weapon, Bloodlust will lose 1/2 of its bonus damage, rounded up, and you will take damage equal to this number.
This legendary katana was forged by an elvish monk named Xaros the Bloodmage. A prolific murderer and master of blood-based magic, Xaros found great power in the blood of his enemies and gained a thirst for it that would put a vampire to shame. This sword was the instrument of his carnage and bears with it the same cursed lust for blood as its former master.
Battleaxe, rare (requires attunement)
This silvery axe glitters in the sun, showing its beautiful etchings and engravings of powerful warriors slaughtering women, children, and the elderly. When held, the weapon almost tugs at the hand and mind, seeking blood, and will not be sated by anything short of killing.
This is a +3 Battleaxe (1d8+3 slashing, versatile 1d10+3) lands a critical hit on a 19 or 20 attack roll. Whenever this weapon lands a critical hit, or deals the finishing blow to an enemy, you gain 2d4 temporary hitpoints, which will stack, and last until your next short rest.
Curse: Whenever you gain temporary hitpoints from the effects of this weapon, or use this weapon to kill a "sapient creature", the DM secretly rolls a d4. On a 1-3, a character from your backstory is grievously wounded or maimed. On a 4, that character from the is instantly slain, as though cleaved by the strike of a mighty axe. (The wielder is not aware of this curse unless they make a DC 20 arcana check while attuned.)
The axe once belonged to a noble knight who, over the course of many campaigns and crusades, fell to the vices of a traveling warrior; burning, pillaging, and murdering innocents in the name of his cause. Upon returning from his crusade, the knight remained consumed by his lust for blood. A petty altercation between the knight and his young son turned violent. The town blacksmith found the bodies, all bearing wounds from this weapon. The smith took the axe, and engraved it with a sign of blood.
Greataxe, rare (requires attunement)
A +1 greataxe with a circular blade on the end. The handle of the axe has a small ring attached to a chain, which can be pulled to activate its magical effect.
Once per day, as a bonus action, you may pull on the ring to make the circular axe blade start spinning. It will spin for 1 minute. While the blade is spinning, any melee attacks made with the axe cast dispel magic as a 3rd level spell on the target after you roll, but before it is determined if you hit. If a spell of 4th level or higher is on the target, use a spellcasting modifier of +3 to roll. If anything is successfully dispelled, the axehead begins to glow and the axe deals an extra 2d6 force damage for 1 minute (does not stack).
All manner of mage fear the whirring of The Boonsaw.

“Our biggest strength is our friendship”
These swords were made for a lonely fighter, who wanted to have more friends to talk to. Something went a little wrong and the swords became best friends with each other instead of their owner. The swords were still friends with the fighter, but the friendship was not the same.
Maul, legendary (requires attunement)
Initially 2d6 Bludgeoning, counts as magical for the purpose of overcoming resistance.
The handle of this maul is made of single piece of solid wood, it looks to be heavily burnt and black in color with a dim red glow omitting from the inside. The head of maul is made of burnt and corrupted looking branches and twigs which seem to grow out of the handle at the eye. The maul is soft to the touch and omits the smell of burning wood.
There are 3 stages of power to be attained, as the character progresses: Dormant, Awakened, and Ascendant. This weapon is meant to develop in power with the character over the course of a campaign. I have included my recommended levels. 1-5 Dormant, 6-10 Awakened, and 11-20 Ascendant.
Dormant: +1 to melee attack rolls and damage rolls made with this weapon and additional 1d4 fire damage on a successful strike. The maul enables its wielder to cast druidcraft 3 times per day. Additionally, when you are exposed to an act of harming nature, you must pass a medium difficulty wisdom save, or enter a rage (as the barbarian class for 10 rounds with the sole purpose of stopping the act).
Awakened: +1 to hit with to melee attack rolls and damage rolls becomes +2. All other abilities from the dormant state remain. In addition, the maul gains 1d4 necrotic damage on a successful strike, and it regains 3 charges per day up to a maximum of to cast the following spells. Additional charges can be expended to cast at a higher level; one charge per increased level.
Ascendant: +2 to hit with to melee attack rolls and damage rolls becomes +3. The additional fire and necrotic damage both increase from a d4 to a d6 Charges gained per day increases to 6. Additionally, the weapon grants its wielder advantage on Nature and Animal Handling skill checks. Spell list now also includes the spells below.

|Wall of thorns||6|
This maul was crafted by a dryad long ago when her Treant lover was burned by an angry mob. The dryad died in the attempt to save her lover, but her sorrow and rage were so great that they survived and live on together within this maul.
Longbow, rare (requires attunement)
This bow is made of a dark wood; it doesn't have a bowstring. When you pull at where the string should be, the bow will magically create a bowstring and an arrow made of pure chaotic energy. On a hit, the chaotic longbow deals 1d8 of magic piercing damage. Additionally, the chaos arrow causes a secondary damage determined by the level of chaos held within the bow.
•1st chaos level, the damage die is 1d4
•2nd chaos level, the damage die is 1d6
•3rd chaos level, the damage die is 1d8
•4th chaos level, the damage die is 1d10
The type of damage is determined by a roll and can be found in the following table.
The bow begins at the 1st chaos level. Upon a critical hit, roll each additional damage die seperately (usually, the bow will deal 2 different kinds of damage). After the damage is dealt, roll an additional d20. If the result is a 20, the bow permanently increases the chaos level by 1. After a critical fail the user should roll on the damage table, and take the the chaos damage themselves. After the damage is dealt, roll an additional d20. If the result is a 1, the bow decreases the chaos level by 1. The bow cannot fall below chaos level 1. The bow does not lose chaos levels if ownership is transfered.
"You have a fragment of chaos in your hands", warned the old man, "with the power to destroy your enemies and yourself."
Cleansing Culinary Cutter
This dagger looks like a slightly large, but typical, cooking knife. It always remains immaculately clean and sharp. When this dagger is used to cut food, it cleans it of all diseases and poisons. If you hit someone with a melee attack with this dagger, the wound cannot get infected. This dagger will neutralize any poison applied to it.
The original Cleansing Culinary Cutter was created for a royal chef who wanted a magical knife that wouldn't need cleaning or sharpening. However, the enchanter's plan didn't go over so well with His Majesty. The king was unharmed and unamused. The enchanter never worked for the Royal Court again, but instead made his fortune selling such blades to wealthy chefs, hunters, and others who needed a good butcher's knife.
Corwyn the Cowardly's Whip of Escaping
Whip, rare (requires attunement)
This whip looks no different than an average whip, save that, when cracked, it almost seems to disappear for a split second - or was that just a trick of the light? This whip has three charges. As a bonus action, you may crack the whip in the direction you wish to travel, and expend a charge to cast misty step. If you succeed on an attack after using the whip this way, it deals an additional 2d4 damage. At dawn, the whip regains 1d4-1 charges.
Corwyn came up with a perfect way to escape the fighting pits of Nhyr. He stole one of the guard's whips, and slowly imbued it with his desperation and fear. He spent night after night in his cell, bent over the whip. Once he felt it was complete, he took it into the pits with him. Rather than fight, he cracked his whip triumphantly in the direction of the thick stone gates. Only to realize that his destination was 5 feet further than what he'd calculated. To this day, Corwyn remains entombed in that stone, save for one hand, out of which fell a rather normal looking leather whip.
Firearm, very rare (requires attunement)
+1 Firearm. This item has 4 charges. All charges are recovered after a long rest.
Two for One Special: If you make a critical hit you may make another attack to the same target, or a creature within 20 feet of that target. You make the attack without proficiency and do not add any bonuses to its damage (other than the +1 granted by this weapon). The bullet passes through the target's body making curves in the direction of a body to hit
Ricochet Round: If you roll a 1 or 2 on the damage you may use a charge to reroll the damage; you must use the new roll. The bullet inside the enemy suddenly starts to move targeting it's weak spots
Homing Bullets: Immediately after you miss a shot, you can use a charge to reroll the attack as a bonus action, and if it hits, you add one extra damage die. You can't use this ability on a misfire. You see bullets flying in the air, making curves as if they were chasing the target
Dragohnson's Harmonic Daggers
Daggers, legendary (requires attunement)
This matched pair of +1 daggers are forever ice cold, in any environment. They have handles of obsidian-like wood that lock perfectly into your grip. The blades are battle worn, but keen-edged. In the right light seem to be coated with a thin layer of ice. They feel ever so slightly heavier than they should. Any sneak attack damage made with these is dealt as cold damage. The daggers are harmonically linked, and are constantly leeching amounts of kinetic energy transfered to them, making them feel slightly heavier than they look. If identify is cast upon these items, it is unable to reveal the hidden command word.
Kinetic Explosion: If you speak the command word to one of these daggers, the other will unleash all of their combined stored energy at once in a violent explosion. The base size for this explosion is a 5ft radius sphere, and causes 1d6 magical force damage. The area will increase by 1ft radius, and the damage will increase by 4d6 for every week since the daggers were last activated. Unfortunately, the command word has been lost for centuries. The daggers have stored enough energy to cause a continentally significant explosion.
These daggers were forged by a powerful Dwarven smith over several hundred years. They used a glacier as a hammer and the mountain through which it ran as the anvil. The command word has been sealed away for centuries.
Warhammer, very rare (requires special attunement)
This is a +1 warhammer. This warhammer can only by attuned after it is used by someone who fights in defense of others, and is capable of speaking Dwarven. As an action, the attuned wielder may use Earthwarden to cast wall of stone once per day, without components or spell slots. Once attuned, this warhammer grants +1 to AC.
The Earthwarden once belong to an old Dwarven king who used it in the last defense of his realm.
Longsword, rare (requires attunement)
This versatile longsword weapon radiates a rainbow shimmer across the blade, hilt and pommel. Upon closer inspection, a strange, shimmering stone can be seen within the clear metal of this blade. The colours are not bright enough to emit light. However, when the sword is swung, a random color within the gem will glow. A singular elemental effect will surround the blade until momentum is ceased. The weapon will then resume its shimmering, shifting colors. Upon a successful melee attack, the player rolls on the random element table. The result deals an extra 1d6 + (charisma modifier of the user) of the damage of the element selected.
It seems that it the stone is what is the source of the weapons power and with expertise can be transferred onto any mundane weapon that contains a space for the gem.
Whip, very rare (requires attunement)
The whip consists of a long metal chain that ends in a metallic, spiked sphere with holes in it. When attuning to the weapon, define a damage type from among the following: fire, cold, lightning or thunder. This whip has 4 charges. Used charges are replenished at dawn. A single charge may be restored when you take magical damage matching the attuned damage type. On a melee hit, one charge may be expended to deal an additional 1d8 of the attuned damage type. This whip is a magical bludgeoning weapon for the purposes of determining damage resistance. If you wish to change the damage type of this whip, you must de-attune and re-attune to the weapon.
These whips must be crafted in the elemental extremes. In the center of a storm, the cold of the poles, the heat of a volcano. Only then can an arcane smith embed the elemental attachment into the metal.
Spear, rare (requires attunement)
A simple wooden spear with a molten metal spearhead. This is a +2 spear. When a creature is hit, it must succeed on a DC15 dexterity save, or catch on fire. While on fire, a creature will take 1d4 fire damage at the start of their turn. The creature can extinguish the flame as an action, or else repeat the dexterity save at the end of every turn. A druid in wildshape may continue to benefit from use of this weapon.
This spear was crafted by the dying efforts of a famous cleric of the forge. He wished to grant his friend a powerful tool to aid him when he no longer could.
A whip made of interconnected bleach-white bones, and ending in a sinister serrated spike. This whip deals a base damage of 1d6 + 1. This whip contains one charge when found, and may contain a maximum of 2 charges. A single charge is recovered at dawn. When this whip successfully hits an enemy, you may expend a charge to cast crown of madness on that target without consuming spell slots or components. DC for the spell is 13.
This whip was made from the torturous tail of a bone devil and has been passed down in an endless, bloody cycle of violence. It seems you are next in line.
This weapon deals double damage to plants. This lightweight scimitar is adorned with a bright golden handle. The blade is patterned with winding snakes.
Heavy Crossbow, rare
This +1 crossbow features a magical scope that allows the user to see precisely where their shot will land. This crossbow's bonus becomes +3 if the target is more than 100 feet away from you. The scope on this weapon also functions as a spyglass. This weapon's range is 200/800.
This crossbow was made for a famous sharpshooter, who wanted a weapon that could hit targets from a safe distance, and observe a battlefield from afar.
The Fashion Falchion
Scimitar, rare (requires attunement)
This sword attempts to match the nearest colors to it. When not being held, the sword has a shimmering golden hue. Upon being wielded, the sword changes color to match the shirt of the wielder. The change is more than an aesthetic one though, as the blade does an extra 1d6 of damage based on the color(s) it is. Additional colors add bonus damage. For example, red with white polka dots would be 2d6 radiant fire damage. DM's discretion on how many colors the Fashion Falchion may be at once.
This sword was created by someone who was rumored to have said "but it doesn't match my outfit!" more times than anyone else in history. This can be a variable level item depending on how many colors you allow the falchion to be at once.
Fang of The Betrayed
Spear, legendary (requires attunement)
This is a +2 spear. It becomes a +5 spear when within 1 mile or 1.6 kilometers of a dragon. It is an unbreakable spear, with a dragon's fang magically affixed to the tip. The spear tip glows red like a freshly forged blade when it senses the presence of a dragon nearby.
This spear was forged from the remains of Mankind's only ally in the dawn war that was begun by chromatic dragons.
Flail, very rare (requires attunement by a character that does not have darkvision)
This steel flail has a small lantern in place of a bludgeon. This lantern has two states of use; lit and snuffed.
Lit: As an action, the attuned wielder can light the lantern. It may act as either a hooded lantern or bullseye lantern. This lantern does not require any fuel, while the attuned wielder is holding it. While the lantern is lit, this weapon deals an additional 2d8 fire damage on hit. In addition, attacks against objects will ignite any flammable object not being worn or held by a creature. The area surrounding the lantern feels notably warmer.
Snuffed: As an action, the attuned wielder may snuff out the lantern. While the lantern is snuffed, the weapon deals an additional 2d8 cold damage on hit. The area surrounding the snuffed lantern feels notably colder.

Curse: This weapon causes you to suffer from the "deafened" condition once you are attuned to it. Whenever you cause damage with this weapon, you can hear through your opponent's ears until the next time you cause damage with the weapon, or until combat has ceased. Casting remove curse, or similar magic will cause you to regain your hearing, but it will also de-attune you.
Whispers of Death: After killing an enemy, you will hear up to 3 scenes where the slain creature was present within its lifetime.
These weapons were created as a cruel trick played by an ancient army's battle mage, who slowly lost his hearing due to his old age.

Absorb weapon: The witchblade can absorb any weapon with a hilt. You may perform a one hour ritual requiring 20 GP worth of black sand (which the ritual consumes) as well as physical contact with the witchblade and the weapon to be absorbed. At the end of the ritual, the other weapon is destroyed. The witchblade can now take the shape and properties of that weapon. This will not allow you to bypass any attunement requirements of the absorbed weapon. Artifacts and sentient weapons cannot be absorbed; the ritual simply fails if attempted with such weapons.
Reshape: As a part of an attack action, a creature attuned to the witchblade can command it to take the shape and properties of a previously absorbed weapon.
Shared Experience: The bond between the witchblade and the wielder leaves an imprint on the weapon. You are able to draw upon the experiences of the previous wielders. You may cast the true strike cantrip as an action.
Borrowed Properties: When the witchblade is in its true form, it can borrow certain magical properties from absorbed weapons. If a weapon with one of the following properties is absorbed, the witchblade shares the property when in its knife form. The properties are cumulative unless stated otherwise. Warning, [+1, +2 or +3] (choose one), [Vicious, Life Stealing] (choose one), Wounding.
An unknown member of the Hobgoblin Academy of Devastation found a way to draw on the sharp and malleable magical energies of the desert night.

Call Vassal (1/day): Once per day, as an action, you may call forth a Sword Wraith Warrior to serve you for 1 hour. The warrior obeys your commands, as a loyal vassal. It will not obey suicidal, demeaning, or dishonorable commands and may end the summons if pushed. As a bonus action on your turn you can give the Vassal a command. Given no other orders the Vassal defends the wielder for 1 hour or until the Wraith drops to 0 hit points. This ability recharges at dawn.
Cursed: If you die while attuned to this weapon, your spirit will rise as a Sword Wraith Commander after 24 hours. When killed, your spirit leaves behind a Wraith Blade and becomes the vassal of the next wielder. Only a wish or reincarnate spell may reverse this, once your spirit has risen.
Some wraiths decide to further bind themselves to their sword, to better serve the one who defeated them as a vassal. This binding also carries with it the curse of wraithdom. When the wielder dies, they are doomed to take the wraiths place.

Much of his history has been lost to time but the name remains, and it is not uncommon to see warriors invoke his blessing as they rush into battle by screaming "Yolo!" at the top of their lungs.
