the Pyramid Temples of Lustria, some Monsters bear Magic Weapons,
Magic Armour, and Magic Items just like the magic
items that the Warriors possess. In the Monsters' case though, these
items are cursed and will destroy any Warrior who tries to use them.
the Monster's entry indicates that it carries a magic item roll
1D20 on the appropriate table to determine what it is. A group of
the same type of Monsters have the same magic item, so you should
roll for the group as a whole.
SCIMITAR OF IBN JELLABA
Ibn was an Arabian trader and navigator who captained a fleet
of ships on a trading mission to Lustria, in order to open trade
routes in the heartlands of the tropical continent. When this was
refused by the Lizardmen, Ibn's aid was asked for by the ruling
Mage Lord of a large Lizardman city in the task of recovering ancient
relics which were to be found in a ruined Tomb City guarded and
ruled by a Mummy Tomb King and his Undead army. In return for his
help, Ibn was allowed to take any treasure found in the tomb back
to Araby, in order to keep the Sultan happy. This magical sword
was one of the treasures.

used against Lizardmen, reduce the attackers Damage Dice value to
THE PIRANHA BLADE
blade is shaped in the form of a vicious, ravenous carnivorous piranha
fish. The teeth of this fish are set along the edges of the blade,
and the hilt is decorated with inlaid fish eyes. The weapon mimics
the action of the piranha fish and bites into the flesh of the victim.
Wound caused by this deadly weapon is multiplied by 1D3.
CEREMONIAL MACE OF MALACHITE
This is a magic weapon which Lord Kroak wielded in
his lifetime. The mace is a powerful anti-magical weapon.
model standing adjacent to the wielder of the Mace can cast any
spell or use any magical items. Any items already activated are
instantly dispelled. Magical weapons are considered normal weapons.
SLEEPING DART BLOWPIPE
For thousands of years, the ancient race of pygmies has used
whatever they can find as weaponry to protect themselves against
invaders. While enemies often invade their camps using steel and
magic, the pygmies leap to the defence using nothing but simple
slings and blowpipes. Within minutes, the entire invasion force
is fast asleep....
blowpipe has a range of 8 squares. With it, the wielder can make
as many attacks per round as he has Attacks. The dart does Damage
Dice + 3 Wounds, and ignores Armour. If any Wounds are caused, the
target must roll 1D6. If the result is greater than his base Toughness,
he has fallen asleep for 1D6 turns. While asleep, he may be hit
automatically. Any attacks, by anyone, made against him are increased
by 1 Damage Dice. Nothing can wake the sleeping Warrior. A Monster
with a Sleeping Blowpipe will not target a sleeping Warrior. When
in hand to hand combat, the monster will not use the Blowpipe, and
will revert to his melee weapon, as is normal for missile weapons.
DAGGER OF SOTEK
The Dagger of Sotek strikes with a vengeful wrath of
the mighty god Sotek that drove the foul Skaven from the lands of
Lustria and swallowed them into his great belly.
Dagger strikes with a +1 To Hit bonus, and gives the wielder +1
Strength. In addition, if at least 1 Wound was caused, the Warrior
must roll 1D6. A roll of 1 indicates he is terrified of the wielder
of the Dagger. During his turn, he must immediately attempt to break
from Pinning and flee the combat, heading towards the exit of the
dungeon. If this takes him out of range of the lantern's light,
he must roll on the Escape table. The Warrior must keep fleeing
until he is lost in the dark, or until the wielder of the Dagger
COBRA MACE OF MAZDAMUNDI
The Mace of Mazdamundi is shaped like the gaping mouth
of a hooded cobra. The weapon is virtually alive and can bite and
parry incoming blows of its own accord. The Mace strikes with the
lightening speed of the cobra.
weapon gives the user Dodge 4+. In addition, if the Dodge roll was
a 6, the Mace has parried the blow, and in retaliation, has lashed
out at the weapon. If the weapon used to attack was Magical, it
is destroyed and must be discarded. If it was not magical, nothing
ARCANE BLADE OF THE OLD ONES
Thousands of years ago, before the Age of Chaos, the
Old Ones existed. Their grasp of science and magic was vast beyond
imagining. Some items and weapons they created are still found today.
And when one is wielded by the wrong person, their might is increased
Arcane Blade doubles the wielder's Strength, Weapon Skill and Toughness
to a maximum of 10 (Except for Toughness). For each Wound above
15 that is caused, the Warrior must lose 1 Permanent Wound. Finally,
the wielder of the weapon gains the Lizardman Magic 1 ability.
There are some in the world who believe the Amazons
of Lustria are ancient descendants of the Norse Valkyries who were
part of the first colony of Norse to set up a settlement on the
shores of Lustria. Whether or not this is true, this double edged
long sword is a deadly armament.
wielder of this weapon gains and extra Damage Dice and is subject
to the Frenzy 4+ rule.
DEVOURER OF SOULS - SWORD OF LUTHER HARKON
Luther was once a mighty Empire general who was slain
in battle. His body was being returned to his place of birth when
the ship he was on was attacked by Norse pirates. Luther was actually
a Vampire now and when given the opportunity, rose from his confines
and proceeded to attack both the crews of the Empire and Norse ships.
All slain men rose again to join his Undead army. He now roams Vampire
Coast as the Undead ruler of the aforementioned location. His weapon
is made of an unidentifiable black liquid that gives off a searing
every successful hit, the Warrior must roll 1D6. On a roll of 1,
his soul has been sucked into the blade, and he is killed outright.
At the end of the turn, each Warrior standing adjacent to the wielder
of this weapon must lose 1D6 unmodified Wounds. These Wounds are
PLUMED STAFF OF QUOTL
This mighty staff is made from the very roots of the rare jungle
trees known to grow in the densest part of the Lustrian jungles.
These trees, often referred to as Silverleaf trees take over one
thousand years to fully mature. Once a tree such as this is discovered,
it must be cut down and prepared in order to make a staff from it.
Quotl is an Amazonian God worshipped for his love of Nature, Peace
and Calmness. A Staff of Quotl saps the brutishness and anger from
its wielder, and instead transforms this aggression into a form
of protection and knowledge.
wielder of this staff only ever has 1 Attack and 1 Damage Dice.
For each extra Attack he has, it is converted into an extra 3 Toughness.
For each extra Damage Dice he has, he gains Lizardman Magic 1 (So
is someone had 4 Damage Dice, he would now have 1 Damage Dice and
Lizardman Magic 3).For every 2 points of Strength the wielder has,
he gains Dodge 6+, up to a maximum of Dodge 3+.
This rather unsophisticatedly named club was designed by a Skink
Alchemist by the name of Quoxitl-Qatil. The weapon was created in
bulk by the Mage-Lords and mainly used in the battles against the
Skaven hoards during the Time of Tribulation (the time when the
Skaven released plagues amongst the Lizardmen communities). These
days, it is rare to find someone actually using this weapon.
Skaven, this weapon kills instantly on a To Hit roll of 6 (Which
should mean nothing unless a Warrior is a Skaven of some type).
Against any other race, this weapon does double damage on a To Hit
Roll of 6. Roll Damage, double and then add Strength.
IVORY WARP BLADE
The Old Ones once used weapons of great power. Some of these
weapons were even used to keep the fluctuation of the Polar Gate
steady. When the Gate collapsed all those thousands of years ago
and created the Realm of Chaos, the power of the swords failed to
weaken. While there is no gate left any more, the swords still act
as a temporal gateway into and out of the unknown dimension that
was home to the Old Ones.
the beginning of each Monster Phase, after spells have been cast.
Roll 1D6 on the following table to see what the sword gates in.
In addition, the blades are made out of the finest ivory. The wielder
gains an extra Attack.
VENOM SPEAR OF ZALTEC
Whereas Quotl is the Amazonian God of Peace, Zaltec is the Amazonian
God of War. Attached to the handle of these spears are the shrunken
heads of the attackers’ victims. This, not surprisingly, makes
combat difficult. However, the spear
is imbued with the ferocity of the Zaltec. Once a Warrior is harmed
with this weapon, he will continue to feel its effects for a long
time afterwards, as the deadly venom seeps into his veins.
The wielder is at -2 To Hit whilst using this weapon due to the skulls attached to the handle. The
first hit with this weapon causes the Warrior to lose 1D3 unmodified
Wounds. The second hit causes him to lose 1D6 unmodified Wounds
and the use of his limbs. (He is at 1 Move, 1 Weapon Skill, Pinning
NA, and 1 Initiative.). The third hit causes him to lose 1D6 permanent
Wounds and his eyes are burned from the inside by the venom. (He
can no longer Attack). By the fourth hit, the venom is in plentiful
amounts and kills the Warrior instantly. Note that these hits are
cumulative per combat, not per turn. It would be wise to kill the
wielder as soon as possible. The loss of limbs and eyes is only
temporary, until the venom wears off. This happens after 2D6 turns.
But the permanent Wounds can not be recovered. The venom can be
cured by drinking a Healing Potion at any time.
Each of the three spiked balls of this weapon are a different
colour, and are constantly changing shades and hues, depending on
the mood and temperament of the wielder.

CURSED SWORD OF SIRION THE OBSESSED
Sirion was an Elven Admiral who went mad after being exposed
to the constant heat and cruelties of the Lizardmen of Lustria.
His insanity was so profound it corrupted the power of his magical
wielder of this cursed item only ever hits on a To Hit Roll of 6,
no matter what the Weapon Skill of the target. However, damage is
This bow, like the Staff of Quotl, is made from the rare tree
called Silverleaf. The weapon is used by Amazon Archers who defend
the prouder and more wealthy civilisations of the Amazons.
wielder of this bow automatically has 10 Attacks. These Attacks
are stored up, and once an Attack is used, it is gone. When all
Attacks are used up, the wielder will drop the bow and draw his
normal weapon. Each turn, the user of the bow may make 1D6 Attacks.
Each Attack, if it hits, causes Damage Dice + 10 Wounds. If the
Attack hits, the arrow from the bow will seek out a new target.
Make another To Hit Roll against a random Warrior apart from the
original target. This time the arrow does Damage Dice + 5 Wounds.
Make another To Hit Roll against another Warrior apart from the
last target it can be the original target again). The arrow does
Damage Dice + 3 Wounds. Now make another To Hit roll against a different
Warrior as usual. The attack does Damage Dice + 1 Wounds. After
this, the arrow finally loses its magic and falls to the floor.
If any of the To Hit Rolls fail, the magic wears out too soon, and
it falls to the floor.
The few remaining tribes of Pygmies left in Lustria are not
well known for their magical inventions. However, this short sword
was a strange enough invention to be of interest to other parties,
such as the explorers of Cathay. The weapon gives the wielder a
lust for battle, and inspires the wielder to yell insults and profanities
at any he is attacking. This, usually, irritates the enemy and can
often cause him to make a fatal mistake.
user of this weapon gains +1 Strength for each point of Initiative
he has. In addition, if any Warrior rolls a 1 when trying to hit
the wielder, the wielder may immediately make an Attack against
the Warrior. All Warriors are at -1 To Hit while adjacent to the
wielder, due to the insults being yelled out.
AXE OF GORE
This immense axe is used mainly by regiments of Kroxigor, but
smaller, humanoid versions are known to exist. The double edged
blade is constantly oozing thick, viscous black blood, which burns
with a hissing sound when it touches anything. When the battle is
hard and the deaths are plenty, the axe excretes foul noxious materials;
the crushed, bloodied hearts of its previous victims. When another
victim is claimed, the axe pauses to extract the heart of the victim,
in many cases, causing the stomach to erupt open. The heart is then
absorbed into the blade.
using this axe, the wielder only ever has 1 Attack. This Attack
is at 5 Damage Dice, regardless of what the Monster's normal Damage
Dice were. Keep track of the number of creatures slain by the Warriors.
For each creature killed, add +1 to the Damage Dice of all monsters
with an Axe of Gore. Not surprisingly, the Axe causes Fatal Damage.
HAMMER OF THE COATL
Coatl are winged serpents found deep in the tropical jungles of
Lustria. Many say these creatures are servants of the Plumed One
himself, Quotl, Amazon God of Peace. The hammer itself is sculptured
from the finest marble, including the handle itself. Feathers of
the winged beast are attached to the handle of the hammer, adding
colour and more than a little bit of magical energy. The hammer
is a beacon of light to the Coatl, and during battle, the wielder
can invoke the power of the hammer and summon one or more of the
magical serpents to his aid.
the start of the Monster's Phase, once spells have been cast, roll
that although Coatl are usually only encountered outside, the magic
hammer serves as a teleporter to the creatures. Thus they can also
be summoned while in the dungeon.
THE BLACK WIDOW
This grey hued long sword was created by the human tribes of
Lustria to battle the endless swarms of spiders that invaded their
villages. The weapon was named after its victims. Over the years,
once the spider numbers dwindled, the power of the blade was beginning
to fluctuate, since it had nothing to focus its power towards. That,
combined with the raw warping forces of Chaos that had started to
appear within the Lustrian jungles, totally converted the nature
of the weapon. Soon, it was being used as a weapon of choice for
cowards. A single hit with the blade automatically covered the target
in thick strands of sticky web, where he could be hit much easier.
at least 1 Wound with this blade is caused, the Warrior is webbed.
Due to the powerful nature of this webbing, the Warrior must subtract
2 from the dice roll when he tries to break from webbing. The wielder
of the blade may hit automatically, but others may +2 to their To
Hit rolls. The web is also quite toxic. At the end of the turn,
all webbed Warriors must lose 1D3 unmodified Wounds.
CLOAK OF YUAN-TI
Yuan-Ti was a famous Skink Shaman who invented a form of magical
protection for those who could not make use of heavier armour. Unfortunately,
it is also quite dangerous. This bright red cloak is made from the
feathers of a Coatl.
gives the wearer Ignore Blows 4+. The cloak saps the strength from
its wearer. At the end of each Monster Phase, all Monsters wearing
a Cloak of Yuan-Ti must lose 1 unmodified Wounds. The cloak will
never kill a Monster, however, and if ever the cloak should reduce
the Monster to 1 Wound, he will not lose any more wounds.
GOLD DEATH MASK
The Death Mask is made from beaten gold and protects the wearer's
head from virtually all forms of damage. The most striking features
on the mask are the two staring eyes made from inlaid white and
yellow gemstones which represent the all-seeing and unblinking eyes
of Lord Kroak, an ancient and vastly powerful mummified Mage-Lord.
It is said that the eyes stare out for all eternity and watch over
wearer of the Mask can only be hit on a To Hit roll of 5 or 6. The
Death Mask also has the power to hypnotise a random adjacent Warrior.
Roll 1D6. If the result is a 6, the Warrior is stunned for 1D3 turns,
in which he can be hit automatically and may perform no actions.
A Monster wearing the Mask will attempt to hypnotise a Warrior at
the start of the Monster’s Phase.
SHIELD OF SOTEK
This shield is not an actual magical item. It is a magical force
field which protects the occupant from harm, cast upon particular
servants of the Lizardman God Sotek. It is a sign of great honour
to be affected by the Shield of Sotek.
each Wound suffered, roll 1D6. On a roll of 3 to 6, the shield prevented
the Wound. For example, if the recipient of the Shield of Sotek
suffers 12 Wounds, he would roll 12 dice. For each dice that scores
a 3 to 6, he would suffer 1 less Wound.
STUDDED KROXIGOR LEATHER
This mundane armour is often worn by natives after they kill
one of the great beasts. Whether the armour is actually magical
is debatable, but is does the job very well indeed.
wearer of this heavy coat is at -1 Move and +2 Toughness. He also
gains Ignore Blows 6+.
FEATHERED HELM OF QUOTL
magic of this ancient artefact is powerful beyond words. Said to
be a gift from the Amazon God Quotl himself to the people of Lustria,
it empowers the wearer with vast magical ability.
wearer gains +1 Toughness, +1 Initiative and Lizardman Magic 1.
GOLD PLATE OF LORD ZHUL
Lord Zhul was once a favoured Mage-Lord and was looked upon
with great reverence by his peers and his people. When his mind
became clouded due to the warping influences of a Demon Prince who
had set up home in a ruined Pyramid City, a minor civil war broke
out. Those who still wished to follow Zhul and those who thought
he was insane and wished to follow another. When Sotek himself struck
down the Demon Prince, the shock to Zhul's mind killed him. Upon
his death, his mind became pure again, and he was revered by all.
His suit of golden plate was buried with him, but copies and forgeries
still abound and are used by pretentious Mage-Lords who hope to
be as popular as Lord Zhul during his reign.
armour grants +4 Toughness, Ignore Blows 6+, Regenerate 1 and all
Warriors suffer -1 To Hit when trying to hit the wearer of the armour.
The skull helmet is worn by Saurus Temple Guards as a sign of
their status. Occasionally, when a guard manages to perform a great
duty, the Mage-Lord he serves under will empower his helmet with
magical energy. Many skull helmets worn by Temple Guards are ancient
and have been passed down through the generations.
helmet gives the Monster +2 Armour.
The tyrannosaurus rex is a very ancient and very rare creature
and many scholars doubt the existence of such a creature in today's
society. However, they do exist, as the proof is here in the form
of this armour. The armour is mainly worn by natives and Amazons,
as the Lizardmen have no need for such protection, and have failed
to train and breed the creatures for easy use anyway. The head of
the creature is worn like a helmet, and the rest trails down the
back of the Warrior and wraps around to form a simple coat.
wearer gains Fear (Dungeon Level + 4) and +6 Toughness.
Salamanders are often harvested and slaughtered for their thick
plates and scales that cover their bodies not by Lizardmen, but
by Amazons. The Scalemail is then enchanted to give off an unearthly
wearer of such a suit gains +2 Toughness. The magical heat is so
intense that unless a Warrior has a base Toughness of 4 or more,
he suffers 1D3 unmodified Wounds at the end of the turn.
MARK OF THE GODS
The marked Skink's and Saurus's are frequently endowed
with greater intelligence, keener eye sight, greater strength and
endurance and more courage than the rest. A good example of this
is the highly regarded vermilion crest which is considered to signify
inspiration from the sun god and is known as The Mark of Chotec.
A Mark is a sign from the Gods that the recipient is greater than
the normal individual.
this Magic Armour is rolled, roll 1D6 on the following table for
each separate Monster in the group.

searching ruined Pyramid cities.
well as giving the wearer Ignore Blows 3+, the armour also gives
off bursts of solar energy, directed away from the wearer but in
a totally random direction. At the end of the Monster's Phase, roll
1D6 for the number of solar energy balls to be released. Now determine
where each ball lands randomly (they must land in the same room
as the wearer of the armour). If there is a Warrior in the square,
he is blinded and scalded at the same time. He must lose 2D6 unmodified
Wounds and -1 Weapon Skill. He will regain his full sight at the
end of the adventure.
BRONZE GAUNTLETS OF HUANCHI
Huanchi is another Lizardman God. His worshippers are few and
his power diminishing, but a few of his artefacts remain in Lustria.
These days, Lizardmen do not make regular use of protection for
the hands, thus when a mighty Warlord or Champion is seen to be
using a pair, it is wise to hesitate before acting too hastily.
These gauntlets inspire incredible speed and dexterity.
wearer of these Gauntlets gains Dodge 3+, Weapon Skill 10 and Initiative
CROWN OF WEALTH
With the vast amounts of treasure to be found in Lustria, the
Skinks began to create artefacts of great power for their master
out of the purest materials. Gold, being the most common was a popular
choice. The Crown of Wealth was designed to increase the abilities
of the Mage-Lord who wore it. They could communicate telepathically
with greater ease and could formulate tactics and war plans based
on future events. The Crown also had a side affect. It would glitter
and gleam in the sun light, making the wearer a target for all enemies
Warriors attacking the wearer of the Crown are at +1 To Hit. When
the Monster is dead, the crown erupts into a blinding light and
showers the Warriors with gold coins. The Warrior gains double Gold
for killing him. The Crown grants the following bonuses: +1 Attacks,
+1 To Hit, +2 Initiative and Magic Resistance 6+.
This breastplate was once a unique magic item worn by Emperor
Wu of the Cathian Empire, and was given to Yin-Tuan, a captain of
one of the great war junks of the ill fated invasion fleet to conquer
and colonise the South Lands as a gift to aid him. Yin-Tuan's junk
was blown off course and ended up beaching itself on Vampire Coast
in Lustria. After much heartache and near death encounters, Tuan
escaped Lustria. In his encounters with the Lizardmen, he was forced
to give up his suit of armour. This armour was then duplicated by
the Skink Shamans and given to Saurus Temple Guards on special guarding
assignments that required them meeting the Mage-Lord of very important
the wearer of this breastplate is reduced to zero Wounds, the armour

carapace. No treasure can be gained for this kill. In addition,
all attacks against the wearer of this armour are made at -2 To
Old Ones created numerous magical artefacts that the newer races
of today have no hope of replicating. A few of these items still
exist. If they were to ever fall into the wrong hands, it could
very well mean the end of everything! The Gate Shield was in reality
a hand held portal to the home of the Old Ones. Any blows rained
down upon the shield would simply pass into the other dimension
without harm to the user. On occasion, some creatures would actually
be sucked into the shield and lost forever.
a Warrior hits a Monster with this shield, roll 1D6 and add Initiative.
If the result is greater than or equal to 7, the Warrior has managed
to avoid hitting the shield and causes damage as usual. If the result
is less than 7, the Warrior's weapon passes into the Gate Shield
and enters another dimension. Roll 1D6 on the following table.
The Warrior is sucked into the other dimension and is soon lost
from sight. He is dead!
The weapon the Warrior is using is wrenched from his hand and is
lost in the other dimension.
The Warrior loses his balance due to this unexpected occurrence.
He must miss the rest of this turn and the following turn recovering
The Warrior draws his weapon out without harm to himself or the
The northern part of the continent known as the South Lands
consists of the vast peninsula of Araby and the realms of the Undead,
formally known as Nehekhara. In Nehekhara, the Undead are powerful
and dangerous, and many Lich Lords strive to invent even more powerful
artefacts that corrupt and decay the minds of the living. When Nagash's
army was strong, even he avoided this ancient civilisation. Some
of these artefacts find their way to the jungles of Lustria, probably
stolen by brave adventurers who then perished in the dungeons beneath
the Pyramid Cities. One suit of armour made by the Lich Lords is
the Decaying Armour. This armour dulls the mind of the wearer so
that he acts much like a zombie.
Monster with this armour has only 1 Initiative and 1 Attack. However,
it is almost impossible to destroy a creature who wears this armour.
Even decapitation and severing all the limbs does nothing. The wearer
will simply fumble around until he finds his head and limbs and
then magically reattach them. A Monster wearing this armour must
be reduced to a minus value of Wounds equal to his Maximum Wounds
in order to be at a stage where the Warriors can destroy the corpse
permanently. For example, if a Monster has 15 Wounds, he must be
reduced to -15 Wounds before he can be killed. Once this feat has
been accomplished, roll 1D6 and add any number of Attacks that any
remaining Warriors wish to forfeit in order to destroy the corpse
once and for all (EG: If the Warrior who killed the Monster has
2 remaining Attacks, and there are two Warriors each with 3 Attacks
that have yet to attack this turn, for each Attack these Warriors
give up, add 1 to the dice roll). If the total is greater than or
equal to 8, the corpse has been destroyed significantly and can
be removed from the board. If the result is less than 8, the Monster
rises again with 1D6 Wounds. It must now be reduced to negative
its maximum Wounds again.
ZALTEC'S ARMOUR OF ARCANE DESTRUCTION
Zaltec is the Amazon God of War. This suit of blood red platemail
was a gift from Zaltec to the Amazon Kalim Devout Zataan. Zataan
had single handily protected the destruction of one of Zaltec's
temples and since she despised Magic of all forms, Zaltec gifted
her with this suit of platemail.
armour gives the wearer Magic Dispel 5+, Magic Resistance 4+ and
Magic Drain 5+. In addition, if a spell is successfully dispelled
(not resisted), roll another D6. On a roll of 6, the spell that
was dispelled has also been destroyed. The Warrior must discard
the spell. Finally, the armour gives +1 Toughness.
These armbands are made out of the finest copper and then enchanted
using ancient sorceries almost forgotten by mankind. Lizardmen wore
the armbands when going to war for extra protection if they fear
that their God does not favour them during the battle.
1D6 on the following table for the group as a whole.
1 +6 Toughness
MAIL OF THE LEECH
dull, no shine, pitch black chain armour smells vile and has many
small holes built into it. From within, hundreds of large, blood
sucking leeches emerge and attach themselves to the opponents body,
draining his life fluids away. The leeches then siphon this energy
into the wearer of the armour.
the end of every Monster Phase, roll 2D6 for each adjacent Warrior.
This is the number of Leeches that attach themselves to him. He
must lose 1 unmodified Wound for each Leech. These Wounds are then
taken by the wearer of the armour. Add them onto his Wounds total.
If ever his Wounds are greater than his Maximum Wounds, increase
his Toughness by +1. After that, increase his Toughness by +1 for
every 10 Wounds over his Maximum Wounds.
those powerful enough to destroy a Giant Snake, the rewards can
be great. The scales of the serpent can be removed and a suit of
very strong armour can be made by one who is skilled in the art
of blacksmithing. When finished, the armour is usually decorated
with parrot feathers and painted green and white to indicate the
origin of the armour.
Monster wearing a suit of Serpent Armour gains +4 Toughness and
Ignore Blows 4+. Serpent Armour is rare and valuable. The Warrior
who kills the Monster with the armour may take the suit (he may
not wear it) and sell it at any Lustrian Settlement for 1D6 * 100
CRYSTAL SKULL OF HOQZI-POQUZ
This artefact was stored in the vaults of the mysterious
city of Tlanxla, a large Lizardman settlement, until it was stolen
and replicated by Empire explorers (some would call them thieves….)
The skull is actually not a skull, but a warped lump of crystal
roughly the size and shape of a human head. The Empire were interested
with this item because of its powers to see seconds and sometimes
minutes into the future when the need was dire, usually in battles
and near death experiences. The skull will work automatically when
the need arises.
a monster with a Skull is hit, roll 1D6. On a roll of 5 or 6, the
skull has warned the Monster of imminent danger, and the Monster
can ignore the blow. At the start of the Monster’s Phase,
roll 1D6 for each Monster with a Crystal Skull. On a roll of 5 or
6, the Skull is at full power, and shows its owner the Warrior’s
plans in full. All the Warriors are at –2 To Hit the Monster
with the Skull and they can not use any magic items that need invoking
GOLDEN HEADDRESS OF TLAXCOTL
magic item gifts the wearer with the sheer determination of the
Lizardman God Tlaxcotl. Unlike most Lizardman magic items, this
one was designed and created by Skink Shamans, not Slann and Old
Ones. This headdress may be worn with a helmet. The headdress is
made of a thin sheet of copper, inlaid with rubies and sapphire
gems. Large feathers of sheet gold etched painfully and lovingly
adorn the circlet. Being magical, this item does not weigh that
much at all.
headdress grants the wearer and additional Attack, and he may reroll
the first missed Attack per turn.
PIPES OF HOTX-POTX
It is customary at the dawn of each new day for a greeting to
be played upon a set of magical pipes to the mighty Sun God Chotek.
The Greeting is said to inspire Chotek and to pave the way for his
acceptance of the day’s Skaven sacrifices. Tragically, during
the time of the Elven explorer Sirion’s expedition through
the jungles, a Skink who was playing on the pipes was spotted by
one of Sirion’s elves. At this time, the heat and constant
attacks from the Lizardmen had taken their toll on the Elves. One
deranged elf opened fire on the Skink, and laughed as his helpless
body crumbled to the ground, dead. His greeting to Chotek was never
the beginning of each Monster’s Phase, roll 1D6. This is the
number of Attacks that the Warriors must lose as they are entranced
by the peaceful melody of the pipes. Share this amount among the
Warriors as evenly as possible. They do not all lose this many Attacks.
The Silverleaf Tree is a very rare tree that has magical
properties in its leaves and bark. An ordinary totem icon, such
as a figurine of a Pygmy God, or a symbol of clan leadership can
become magical with the addition of specially prepared Silverleaf
leaves. Such an item is often used by Pygmies in addition to their
a Monster gains this item, roll 1D6 on the following table to see
its affects for this battle.
The power of the totem makes all Warriors instantly lose 1 Permanent
Wound for every 3 Monsters with a totem. Thus is there are 7 Monsters
with a totem, 3 Permanent Wounds are lost. If there is only 1 Monster,
1 Wound is lost. The totem has no further properties.
The totem is the carrier of foul chaos magics. A random Warrior
loses 1D3 of his Attacks this entire battle. All other Warriors
lose 1 Attack this battle. Minimum Attacks are 1. Attack losses
are cumulative for additional monsters with a totem.
If the bearer of this item is not a spell caster, roll again on
this table. The totem increases the strength of the Winds of Magic
in this area. Any spells the caster casts that cause damage to a
Warrior are increased by 1D6 Wounds of damage.
The totem acts as a source of anti-magic. The Warriors can not cast
any spells while the bearer of the totem is still alive.
The power of the totem is such that it blocks the abilities of the
Warriors to communicate with their Gods. No Luck may be used on
this board section while the bearer of the totem still lives. In
addition, the Witch Hunter may not use Faith Points and the Warrior
Priest may not use Blessings.
The magnificent might of this magical totem is beyond imagining.
Roll three times on this table for the abilities of the totem. Re
roll any more 6’s.
MAGIC WAR DRUM
In the hours leading up to a battle, the Skink musicians often
beat the drums of war, to inspire courage within the troops and
to send fear to the enemy. The resounding on the drum’s toughened
snake skin is enough to drive fear into the hearts of many a hardened
war veteran and his army. The magical war drums are used when the
battle it to be long and hard. By playing these drums, the Mage-Lords
who lead the army to battle can continue their contemplations and
calculations without being disturbed by the toll of the drums.
Magical War Drum is used at the beginning of the Power Phase, just
after the Power Dice has been rolled. Roll 1D6 for each Warrior
and add Initiative. If the roll is 7 or less, the Warrior is terrified
by the constant resounding of the beating drum. He is counted as
being Terrified of the Monster with the drum. In addition, he is
at –1 to all his To Hit rolls against other Monsters. These
effects last for the entire combat.
Giant Snake of Lustria is treated with disdain and often hatred
by the non-Lizardman races of Lustria. Pygmies, Amazons and the
dark skinned humans who live there often hunt the beasts to procure
their skin and flesh for use in trading with local tribes or for
making armour. Occasionally, a Pygmy Shaman will request the entire
head of a Giant Snake to be brought to his tent. There, the head
is skinned, the flesh removed, and the jawbone removed from the
rest of the head. With his limited magical abilities, he enchants
the jawbone with the power of Shokutu’l, a Pygmy word meaning
swiftness and movement. Each of the teeth are then possessed of
a different power. The teeth are removed and tossed to the ground,
where they have differing effects, depending on the reagents used
in the preparation and the weather.
jawbone has 1D6 teeth in it. At the start of the Monster’s
Phase, the Monster will throw 1 tooth to the ground. Roll once on
the following table to see the effects of the tooth.
The tooth does nothing but sit and rock backwards and forwards for
a few seconds before it gets crushed beneath the foot of a careless
Once on the ground, the tooth vibrates and a shimmering portal of
blue light erupts from the ground where the tooth once was. Determine
where the tooth was thrown randomly (on the same board section as
the Monster with the jawbone). From now on, at the start of every
Monster’s Phase, just before throwing more teeth, roll 1D6
to see what comes through the portal. These monsters must be placed
as near as possible to the location of the shimmering doorway, and
may attack this turn.
1D3 Pygmy Shamans
Where the tooth lands (determine randomly on the same board section
as the Monster), time seems to slow down for the Warriors, while
the Monster’s rush frantically about. Monsters who are on
or adjacent to the tooth gain an additional Attack this turn. Warriors
who are on or adjacent to the tooth lose an Attack this turn, with
the minimum being 1.
The tooth plays havoc with the very fabric of reality, switching
and changing the Monsters and Warriors around as they stare in bewilderment.
Remove all models from the board section that the Monster with the
jawbone is standing upon, including the Monster. Now beginning with
the model with the lowest Initiative (roll to determine draws),
randomly place the models back on the same board section. If a model
is placed on the same square as another model, the one being placed
suffers 1D6 unmodified Wounds from molecular rearrangement and must
be placed in a new random square. Once the model has taken at least
10 Wounds in this fashion, he is placed on the closest free space
to where he was last placed. Any model who is teleported into the
middle of a pit or similar location is immediately destroyed, as
he falls to his doom (unless the model has Flying, of course).
The serpent tooth explodes violently when it hits the ground. All
Warriors in the same board section as the Monster with the jawbone
must roll equal to or under their Willpower, or be blinded by the
magical light. All Monsters are at +1 To Hit a blinded Warriors
this turn, while the Warrior is at –1 To hit the Monsters
Where the tooth lands, a strange haze of rainbow colours rises from
the ground, obscuring all Monsters and Warriors from each other.
When the mist finally dies down, the Warriors and Monster with the
jawbone feel somewhat different…… Roll 1D6 on the following
table to see what statistics the Warrior’s have lost. These
are added to the Monster’s statistics. Once the Monster is
dead, the statistics are restored. Each Warrior must roll separately.
No stat may ever be reduced to 0 through this method.
2 1 Weapon Skill
3 2 Toughness
4 2 Strength
5 2 Weapon Skill
6 2 Strength, 2 Weapon Skill, 2 Movement
RARE SPICES OF XHOTL
These tiny urns, worn on a chain around the neck, are full of
rare, exotic, and magical spices, made from various grounded herbs
and plants found in the deserted Lizardman city of Xhotl. When a
handful of the spices are thrown into the face of an enemy, severe
burning takes place, sometimes even damaging the eyes permanently.
the beginning of the Monster’s turn, before he moves or attacks,
he may throw a handful of the herbs at a random Warrior who is less
than 3 spaces away from him. That Warrior must roll 1D6.
The spices sear the Warriors eyes painfully. He is blinded. He must
take 2D6 unmodified Wounds and is on 1 Weapon Skill. The price to
heal his eye sight is 1D6 * 200 gold pieces, which must be paid
at the next Settlement, or the loss will be permanent.
The spices cause severe damaging to the Warrior’s face, blinding
him for 1D6 unmodified Wounds. For the next 1D6 turns, the Warrior
has Weapon Skill 1.
Grabbing at his face, the Warrior screams in agony. He
must lose 1D6 unmodified Wounds as the spices corrode his skin.
Roll another D6. If the result is a 1, he has lost 1D3 Permanent
Wounds due to scarring.
The spices cause minor burning. The Warrior must lose 1D3 unmodified
The Warrior is surprised by this sudden action, and as such, suffers
–1 To Hit on his next attack.
Bewildered, the Warrior wipes the spices from his face, wondering
what the point of it was.
When a Mage-Lord dies, his bones are considered sacred relics.
These days, it is a simple matter or finding and recovering the
body of a Mage-Lord in order to get his bones. In the old days,
Mage-Lords were buried in crypts in the deepest catacombs beneath
the temples of the Slann. Expeditions are often mounted in order
to recover these bones. One such tale involved the explorer Marco
Columbo, who had been asked as part of a deal to lead a recovery
mission to get some ancient bones and return them to their rightful
resting place, within the confines of the Mage-Lord temples. Marco’s
Tilean army and a large force of Lizardmen attacked the ruined temple
which was guarded heavily by an Undead army lead by a Mummy Tomb
King. The bones were recovered, and as a reward for helping them,
Marco was allowed to keep any other treasure found in the temple.
Mage-Lord bones are often possessed by the spirit of the dead Slann,
and can help during the battles that are to come by sending telepathic
thoughts to the Mage-Priest who leads the army and who carries the
this magic item is gained, roll 2D6. This is the number of 1’s
than can be re rolled by any Monster currently in the battle. This
means that whenever a Monster rolls a 1 for anything at all (To
Hit, Damage Dice, a Special Ability, etc), he may re roll it immediately.
Once all the re rolls have been made, the Mage-Lord bones are worthless.
PLAQUE OF XOLOC
This sacred clay plaque is one of many that is stored in the
temple of Xoloc, in the Lizardman city of Hexoatl. During times
of great need, Mage-Lords would take a plaque to help them boost
their magical power.
plaque allows the Monster to cast a single Lizardman spell per turn,
or if he can already cast spells, an extra one. This spell can not
be resisted or dispelled in any way whatsoever. Any spell that causes
damage causes maximum damage. When rolling for the spell results
in a failed casting, roll again. After each use of the plaque, roll
1D6. On a roll of 1, the plaque explodes, doing 1D6 unmodified Wounds
to the user, and 1D3 unmodified Wounds to all adjacent to him. Obviously,
the plaque can not be used again if this happens.
No one knows exactly what the Quango is or was, or what will
hatch out of the egg when it finally hatches. One such egg was discovered
in a secret chamber while the temple of Pahuaz was being rebuilt.
The egg dated back to the days of the Old Ones, meaning that whatever
the Quango was, it lived millions of years ago. The Palaeontologists
of the Empire who have heard the rumours about the Quango believe
it to be similar to their mythical creature, the Quaag.
the start of every Monster’s Phase, the Monster will attempt
to break the egg and see what hatches out of it. Roll 1D6. On a
roll of 5 or 6, the egg breaks and a baby Quango hatching bleets
mornfully up at the Warriors. Roll 1D6 on the following table.
The cute little toddler, waddles up to one of the Warriors and starts
rubbing into his leg, begging for food. How sweet. If the Warrior
gives it a provision, he will have made a new friend. If he does
not, the Quango waddles off into the darkness, never to be seen
again. While the Quango is with the Warrior, he will never be ambushed,
but the other Warriors are not affected by this, and are ambushed
as normal. The Quango can sit on the Warrior’s shoulder quite
comfortably, and does not take up a square. Once the Warriors leave
the dungeon, the Quango will desert the Warrior.
Looking up hopefully, the Quango sees what it thinks is it’s
mother. It grasps onto the Monster who broke the egg’s arm
and swings happily as the Monster tries to throw it off. In the
end, the Monster runs from the scene, screaming angrily, trying
to throw the little creature from his arm. Remove the Monster from
play. No gold is gotten for this Monster. During the next battle,
the Monster will return, but he will have one less magical item.
Place the Monster in the room in addition to the other monsters
The little baby bleats, falls over and dies from extreme age.
The creature flings itself at a random Warrior, causing him 2D6
unmodified Wounds, before he flings it off and crushes it with the
hilt of his weapon.
The creature attacks a random Warrior, causing 2D6 unmodified Wounds.
No matter how hard he tries, the Warrior can not throw the Quango
off. At the beginning of the Warrior’s Phase, roll 1D6 and
add Strength. If the result is 8 or more, the Warrior has tossed
the Quango to the ground and stepped on it. Otherwise, the Quango
does another D6 unmodified Wounds and remains hanging off the Warrior’s
flesh. If the Warrior is reduced to 0 Wounds in this way, the Quango
will release him and flee into the darkness.
After a few seconds of sitting looking bewildered, the tiny baby
begins to shift and waver. The Quango must have been a race of shape
shifters. Roll once on the current Battle-level Table to see what
the Quango turns into. Place the creature on a square adjacent to
the Monster who broke the egg, or a square as close as possible
to him if there are none adjacent. The Quango may attack during
this Monster’s Phase.
HORN OF SWARMS
The ruins of the Lizardman cities are full of a myriad of lizards,
snakes and insects. The Lizardmen created this horn in order to
harness the power of these creatures during the heat of battle,
to hinder and annoy the enemy while the bulk of the army attacks.
the beginning of each Monster Phase, roll 1D6 on the following table.
Thousands and thousands of tiny insects swarm into the room, flying
up the Warrior’s noses and mouths, choking them. Each Warrior
must lose 1D3 unmodified Wounds and is at –1 To Hit for the
remainder of the combat, or until a 6 is rolled in the Power Phase.
Hundreds of spiders drop onto the Warriors from above, biting them.
Each Warrior must lose 1 unmodified Wound. If this takes him to
0 Wounds, the extreme poison reduces his Strength by 2 when he is
The floor of the room is suddenly crawling with cockroaches. If
a Warrior ever rolls a 1 when rolling to Hit, he falls over and
is counted as being prone for the remainder of the turn.
2D6 Giant Insects answer the call. Place them on the board in the
usual way. They may attack in the Monster Phase as usual.
2D6 Lizards answer the call. Place them on the board in the usual
way. They may attack in the Monster Phase as usual.
2D6 Snakes answer the call. Place them on the board in the usual
way. They may attack in the Monster Phase as usual.
“MONSOON” SPELL SCROLL
When the Mage-Priests are too busy contemplating complex
calculations to add their magical might to the battle at hand, others
must take up the stand. Skink Shamans are rare, and are treated
with the same respect as the lesser Mage-Priests. When entering
battle, Skink Shamans take magical items with them to help boost
their abilities to defend their leader. Among these items are spell
scrolls, the most common of these being the “Monsoon”
Monster casts this spell at the beginning of the Monster’s
Phase, just like any other spell. The spell can be dispelled and
resisted as usual. When cast, the room is suddenly filled with torrential
rain storms and heavy winds. The Monsters and Warriors alike are
all buffeted around with free abandon, except for the caster. Each
Warrior rolls 1D6. If the result is 1 to 3, they have been forced
to the ground due to the power of the storm and suffer 1D6 unmodified
Wounds. Roll 1D6 for all Monsters except the caster as well. The
storm remains in play for 2D6 turns. Repeat the process at the start
of every Monster’s Phase. Models thrown to the ground lose
an Attack before they manage to regain their footing. Once the spell
has been cast, it may not be cast again. If more than one Monster
has a spell scroll, the Monster will not use it until the other
storm has ended.
SOUL CATCHER - RUBY OF INXITI-ZAPEXTA, SKINK SHAMAN
Resurrection is a magic that even the most powerful
of Mage-Lords have trouble performing. Only the Wizards of the Old
World who have specialised in this kind of magic for decades can
even attempt to perform it. However, after years of careful studying
of the mages of Middenheim, a single Skink Shaman managed to capture
a single resurrection spell being cast in a simple, flawed ruby
about the size of a goblin’s fist. Immediately, the Skink
duplicated this ruby using advanced replication magic and handed
out these spell jewels to all the Mage-Priests within his area,
in the hope that they would use the gems at the point of death to
capture their souls within. After battle, the Skink would then simply
release the soul back into another body. It was not uncommon for
many Mage-Priests to actually inhabit the body of a lesser creature
if they could not re-use their body.
a Monster with a Soul Catcher gem dies, his soul is immediately
reborn into that of another Monster on the board (randomly determined),
passing through the gem into the new body. This Monster suddenly
has the same stats as the original Monster killed. While the Monster
gains the stats of the original Monster, it gets to keep its own
Special abilities and can use them as normal. Thus, a powerful wizard
could be killed and then inhabit the body of an Emperor Dragon,
gaining its abilities of flight, breath, etc, while keeping his
own keen intellect and strength. The original Monster’s stats
are not carried over into the new body. When used, the gem shatters
and can not be reused. If there are no Monsters on the board section
for the Monster with the gem to inhabit, the gem is wasted, and
the Monster dies as normal.
ONYX PARROT STATUETTE
Normally, parrots are not known for their quiet nature. This
magical item actually does the opposite of what real parrots do.
Instead of being noisy and obnoxious, this statuette prevents all
sounds of any type from being made or heard with a small radius
around it. The Monster carries the item on his shoulder, where it
opens its beak, emanating waves of silence outwards.
soon as a Warrior is adjacent to the Monster with a parrot statuette,
he (nor his player) may make any sound whatsoever. He cannot speak
to the other Warriors, cast spells, or do anything else that requires
the use of speech. If the player should happen to speak by accident,
it obviously means he thinks the power of the statuette is nothing
compared to his willpower. He must immediately lose 1 point of Willpower,
and 1D6 unmodified words for each time he speaks out of line. Once
out of range of the parrot, he can speak again as normal. When the
Monster is killed, the parrot explodes in a silent torrent of molten
onyx, causing 1D6 unmodified Wounds to all models adjacent to the
Monster with the parrot.
ENCHANTED NOSE BONE
Never underestimate the lengths some people will go to in order
to further their status in life. Some Pygmies, and even some humans,
have taken to wearing magical nose bones through their noses. Most
of the time, these so called magical nose bones are not magical
at all. People wearing such a bone believe strongly enough in its
powers that they think it is having an effect upon them. Never-the-less,
some nose bones do possess some magical ability.
the pain of these bones means the wearer of one will only ever hit
on a To Hit roll of 5 or 6. (unless he required a 6 in the first
place) However, the Monster with a nose bone may force a random
Warrior to re roll a dice roll. When this magic item is rolled,
pick a random Warrior. Whenever the Warrior makes a dice roll for
himself, roll another D6. If the result is a 6, the magic of the
nose bone has intervened, and the Warrior must re roll the dice
(this applies to all dice rolls for that Warrior alone. To Hit rolls,
Damage rolls, Event rolls, Fear and Terror rolls, etc.)
SHRUNKEN HEAD NECKLACE
One evil and cruel pastime that the cannibal tribes often participate
in is the shrinking of human heads. No one knows why or how the
deed is done, and since most human tribes of cannibals do not have
access to the dark magic that would be required for such a task,
it is assumed to be some form of evil ritual involving unknown,
savage and primeval gods. Indeed, the shrinking of human heads has
interested many parties, but none so much as the mighty Pharaohs
of the Pyramid Cities of Nehekhara. While trading is uncommon in
Lustria, those who know of the desert continent Nehekhara often
set about with the soul purpose of finding shrunken heads to export,
for the price of a shrunken head is vast beyond imagining. Some
tribes make necklaces of many shrunken heads, often of great adversaries.
The Winds of Magic frequently flow through the necklaces due to
the concentration of evil within.
Monster wearing a shrunken head necklace gains the following bonuses:
+1 Attack. Fear 6, Chaos Magic 1 (a random type), +1 Toughness and
Ignore Blows 6+.
INCANDESCENT CANDLE OF ETERNAL BRIGHTNESS
This candle glows with a magical white light, illuminating the
area in a translucent glow that seems to delve into the deepest
shadows. No one knows where exactly these candles came from. One
explorer who managed to return to Altdorf after a mission to Lustria
carried with him a magical candle that could not be extinguished.
This, of course, was viewed as “quite annoying” when
night time came about. No matter what they did, the candle could
not be extinguished or destroyed. Eventually, nobles in power decided
to bury the candle within a large adamantium chest and bury it at
the bottom of the ocean with powerful magical locks placed upon
it. To this day, it is said that sea fearers can occasionally see
a mysterious glow emanating from the ocean depths.
with the candle lose their Ambush ability. Because of the magical
light from the candle, To Hit penalties that the Monsters or the
Warriors have are ignored entirely for this battle. This includes
natural penalties, not using a magic weapon, and all other penalties.
The only exception to this is Fear and Terror, which is still taken
into account as normal. Even when the Monster carrying the candle
is killed, the candle does not die out. From now on, the board section
and all adjacent to it are lit up and the Warriors do not need a
lantern to move about in them. The Warriors cannot take the candle
for themselves as an alternative light source.
CULCHAN CLAW GIRDLE
The Culchan is a rare flightless bird with huge sharp claws
and a beak capable of dismembering an ogre. When a native reaches
his 15th birthday, it is his task to prove his manhood by attacking
one of these birds armed only with a spear and bark shield. If he
is able to kill or at least critically wound the creature, he is
aloud to continue his training as a warrior. If the bird is too
much for the native boy, it is obvious he does not have what it
takes to become a fighter. He must then chose another profession,
such as that of a blacksmith or hunter / gatherer. Those that do
win are allowed to make the hide and claws of the Culchan into a
large belt. This shows to all other tribes that the warrior is one
to be reckoned with, hopefully putting fear into the enemies ranks.
the Warriors encounter a Monster with a Culchan Claw Girdle, they
must roll 1D6 for each Monster with the claw. On a roll of 1, they
are terrified of the might of the Monster, and immediately flee
into the shadows. They can not participate in this event at all.
Remove them from the board. Once all of the Monsters are killed,
place him on the board again. The Warrior does not get any treasure
from this combat. If all the Warriors are forced to flee, then each
Warrior must roll on the Escape table. This adventure is over. In
addition, for those Warriors that don’t flee, the Monster
has a Fear value equal to his Initiative. Roll as normal.
PLUMED COPPER BRACELET
This magical bracelet has been forged in the deepest, darkest
part of the Lustrian jungles, by the dark skinned human tribes who
live there. It is often wondered how the natives have learned the
art of making magical artefacts, since they have very little control
over the Winds of Magic. The feathers of the Coatl are attached
to the copper bracelet to enhance the magical abilities of it.
this item is gained, pick a random Warrior. The Monster has exactly
the same stats as this Warrior, except for Wounds. However, after
every attack the Monster makes, roll 1D6. If the roll is a 1 the
bracelet backfires and explodes, causing the Monster 2D6 unmodified
Wounds. His statistics now return to normal.
The practice of voodoo as a means of attack has been common
in the Pygmy civilisations for countless centuries. Vary rarely,
other races try to understand the secrets of black magic, and even
more rarely, some succeed. The only race not to venture into the
realms of voodoo is the Lizardmen, who believe the art to be cowardly.
The Mage-Lords would never allow such vile techniques to be employed
in honourable battle.
a Monster receives this item, pick a random Warrior. From now on,
whenever the Monster with the doll gets hurt, the Warrior must roll
1D6. If the result is a 1. The Warrior takes an amount of damage
equal to the amount caused on the enemy, unmodified. If the result
is a 2 to 3, the Warrior takes half the damage, rounded up. If the
result is 4 or more, nothing happens. In addition, when the Monster
dies, roll another D6. If the result is a 1, the Warrior is shocked
by the sudden death of his voodoo counterpart, and must lose a Permanent
Monster Magic Items by Michael Brockhouse.
