This pdf is 11 pages long, 1 page front cover, 1 page editorial, 2/3 of a page SRD, leaving 8 1/3 pages of content for 15 new specific magic items, so let's check out what Headless Hydra Games has to offer for less than a buck!

After a cool discussion on the nature of magic weapons, we delve into the items and in this installment, we get weapons that are a bit more off the beaten track - we e.g. get the Bang Cutter, a magic dogslicer that ignites those nasty horses and dogs. The Bolt of minor inconvenience is a neat piece of ammunition as well: It teleports hit enemies 1d100 ft. in a random direction when the target fails a will save. The other 2 bolts of inconvenience are more powerful versions - cool ideas! The Detonating pilum is also a cool throwing weapon, dealing some neat explosion damage and we get firestorm shurikens and even a magic ogre hook. Another cool item is the librarian's rejoinder, a bloodletting keen kukri (bloodletting being a new special weapon quality introduced in this pdf) that can transcribe the last text the victim read one hour before being killed by the weapon in infernal - very cool idea. Add to that an enchanted stake and an enchanted bladed scarf that doubles as a hat of disguise and can cover the wielder's face in flames.

Conclusion: Editing and formatting are top-notch, I didn't notice any glitches. Layout adheres to a beautiful 2-column standard and 6 of the weapons get their own artworks. The pdf comes with extensive bookmarks. The new magic items are cool and using some more exotic base types (and reprinting their stats) is a good idea and some of their abilities rock. While not every item herein is a full-blown winner, I enjoyed them enough to consider this installment a worthwhile investment - at less than a buck, you get a neat selection of magic items that goes a bit beyond what you'd expect. Seeing that I don't have anything to complain and taking the low price into account, I'll settle for a final verdict of 4.5 stars, rounded up to 5. Well done!

Endzeitgeist out.
