Demon's Frenzy

This document seems to detail a horrific process of binding a maiden's soul
to a demon blade and allowing the evil within to feed upon her for all
eternity. This would require the soul gem of a maiden and a suitable demon
blade.
Something this complicated would need to be crafted by a master smith or mage.
This huge sword appears to be a mere shadow. But shadow does not cut through
bone and flesh like this blade does. You notice that there is a socket on it
which contains a gem of some sort. The blade seems sentient and thirsty for
blood.

Note: Chance to heal the wielder for a small amount (1-10?)

The "soul gem of a maiden" is the filled song gem from Thranarack.

Chain Staff

This document describes an interesting conceptual weapon. It involves cutting
a long, heavy, metallic staff into three parts, putting handholds onto each
section with pelts, then linking them up again using the chain from a flail
or morning star. It mentions that newly forged staves would shatter in the
process as the metal will not have set properly.
Something this complicated would need to be crafted by a master smith or mage.
This three part staff is an interesting weapon. It is three sections of heavy
cylindrical metal connected by a heavy chain. Each section has a comfortable
looking fur handhold. You imagine that this would be very good in the hands
of someone ambidextrous.

Note: Chance to get an extra attack based on two weapon skill

Useable flails and morning stars include(but not limited to): Flail of Ancient Demolation, a two handed mithril flail, morning star, and a two handed steel flail.

Elemental Crossbow

This document seems to detail the making of an elemental crossbow. The author
suggests that five gems of magical and elemental power that he saw in his
travels could have their power infused into a magical crossbow, which would
then be reinforced with mithril.
Something this complicated would need to be crafted by a master smith or mage.
This crossbow looks surreal. Its elegantly curved frame is covered with
beautiful runes, giving off a lovely silver and mithril lustre. As you look
at it, you notice that the colours on the crossbow shift and change between
all the colours in the rainbow. Sometimes quick and violent, sometimes slow
and ponderous, the changes leave you confused as to the true colour of this
artifact.

Note: Does random elemental damage (Does not match what the damage message says)

The five gems are the Starblade gems from the Star Caves and the mithril can be any item made of mithril.

The Staff of Fire and Ice

This document seems to detail the making of an elemental staff. The author of
it suggests that an orb of fire and an orb of cold be bound by bands to a
staff with existing elemental powers to make it more powerful. The author
comments that it would require a very powerful elemental mage to succeed in
this fusing.
Something this complicated would need to be crafted by a master smith or mage.

Note: Can "unleash fire" or "unleash cold" approximately once every minute at the cost of 30 spellpoints.

Weapon Type Skill Wt. Str Damage Parry Handed Made With
The Staff of Fire and Ice staff 55-65 4 12 Greater Than Average Fine One or Two Handed a rowan staff

The Staff of Fire and Ice staff 65-85 6 14 Greater Than Average Fine One or Two Handed The Staff of Azakath

The orbs of fire and cold are from the summoned faden magus in Flaw's House and the bands are from the spectre of a priest in Mt. Kresh.

King's blade

This document documents the writer's desire to impress a king with an
exquisitely crafted, well balanced, jeweled blade. It suggests that there are
two shards of a jewel that could be put back together to decorate a jeweled
blade. The ornamentation could then be rounded out with an emerald and a
ruby.
Something this complicated would need to be crafted by a master smith or mage.

One of the shards of jewel is from the beast of Balan and the other is protected by the spider in the Ruined Tower. The ruby and emerald can be any ruby or emerald gems, including Artificer collected ones.

Spiked gauntlets

This document describes a fairly logical improvement to brawlers' gauntlets.
It suggests that the spikes from flails or morning stars be fused onto
metallic gauntlets to make them more deadly in combat.
Something this complicated would need to be crafted by a master smith or mage.

Ring of restoration

This document seems to be the notes of a cleric. The writer suggests that
some healing objects she has seen in her travels could be melted down
together and remade into a new ring which combines all their healing
properties. She suggests that this would require a ring of regeneration to
start as the base, with a potion of healing, a wand of healing and also
another strong source of healing energy.
Something this complicated would need to be crafted by a master smith or mage.

The "strong source of healing energy" can be Onix, Horn of Power , Elvenheart, the Sword , or A pair of padded greaves of the defender.

Xenophobe

This document was clearly written by someone who hates the world. It details
reinforcing a human slaying morning star with other weapons that are
enchanted specifically to slay creatures of a specific race, creating a
monster flail that would be extra effective against almost any race under the
sun.
Something this complicated would need to be crafted by a master smith or mage.

Weight/Str notes: Poldara made with morning star and an unusual sabre (not identified first). Resulting Xenophobe weighed 6 and required 15 strength to wield.


Blade of Righteousness

This document seems to be the musings of someone who was clearly a holy man.
It details the improvements that could be made to a saintly blade he saw
wielded by a prince through adding the forces of goodness of other holy items
to it - namely a ring and another holy weapon.
Something this complicated would need to be crafted by a master smith or mage.

Note: Weapon eval does not adapt to user race or alignment. Bonus to hit evil creatures. "The blade swerves towards the demonic!"

Weapon Type Skill Wt. Str Damage Parry Handed Made With
The Blade of Righteousness longsword 65-85 5 15 Greater Than Average Nearly Perfect One Handed Pendragon

The holy ring can be any of Zarkan's rings with a white glow. The holy weapon can be any treasure hunt weapon identified as being holy.

Gathering of the Spiders

This document details the bringing together of several Drowgar and manspider
artifacts. It considers the insertion of a medallion into a relic of the god
Losoth, bound by spider silk to seal the new weapon.
Something this complicated would need to be crafted by a master smith or mage. 

Note: Chance to excrete silk webbing, entangling the enemy and reducing dexterity by 1. An entangled enemy will drop 1-4 strands of spider silk when killed.

Weapon Type Skill Wt. Str Damage Parry Handed Made With
Gathering of the Spiders shortsword 45-55 2  ? Average Nearly Perfect One Handed the Blade of Losoth

The medallion can be the dark medallion from Achrya or the "medallion" from Drow Mage. The spider silk can be obtained at the entrance of the Spider's Nest i.e. you do not need a newbie to get this for you.

Shadow Blade

This document describes the possible forging of a shadow blade of evil from
some items the writer has seen in his travels. It would involve a blade of
evil, a dagger of evil and a dark medallion.
Something this complicated would need to be crafted by a master smith or mage.
This huge sword is pure darkness, appearing to absorb all the light near it.
The edges of the blade are so sharp they seem to cut light itself. Just by
being near it, you can feel the hatred and darkness in this blade.

Note: Performs better for evil wielders. "The blade seems to draw off your evil as it cuts and slashes into your opponent!"

Weapon Type Skill Wt. Str Damage Parry Handed Made With
Shadow Blade longsword 65-85 5 14 Greater Than Average Nearly Perfect One Handed Evil Blacksword
Shadow Blade two handed sword 85-100 7 16 Greater Than Average Fine Two Handed the Shadow Sword

The dagger of evil is a vicious knife from Alton's Caverns and the dark medallion is from Achrya.
