1001 Mystical Magic Item Names

The adventurers, deep in a dungeon once again, have slain a fearsome troll and gained its treasure. Much of the troll hoard consists of random detritus, with a scattering of coins that no smarter and sneakier denizen of the dungeon has yet snatched from it, but buried under the pile of debris they find a dagger.

GM: The dagger looks fairly ordinary, though surprisingly clean considering where you found it.

Party Leader: Clean, under that garbage heap? That looks like it might be magical. Kalthras, what do you make of it?

Kalthras: I'm almost out of spells by now, but I can try a simple detection spell on it.

GM: It's definitely magical, though not strongly; it should give a small bonus to combat skill.

Party Leader: Sounds like an ordinary +1 dagger. Well, better than nothing.

Jarmak: One of my daggers is stuck in that winged thing that got away. Can I have this one?

Party Leader: Anyone else? Kalthras? Okay, Jarmak, it's yours. Don't lose this one.

(the next day)

Party Leader: That's the third time today we've fought a ghost-thing, whatever they are. Something just isn't right here. What's changed?

Jarmak: Well, I lost my lucky dagger.

Kalthras: And got a new one. Now that I've had a night's rest, I can do some more magical examinations. Jarmak, let me have a look at that dagger.

GM: You don't pick up a lot about it, aside from confirming its combat bonus. That, and one other thing: The name its last owner, the guy the troll ate, gave it.

Kalthras: And? What is that?

GM: The Haunted Dagger.

At that point, a ghostly apparition begins materializing out of thin air yet again, and the group has more things to worry about than the rogue's problematic dagger. Haunted indeed.

Welcome to the "1001 Things" collections

This is a list of magical item names, and what names they are! Have your players memorized every magic item, or wondrous item, or whatever your game system calls them, in the book? Do they know instantly what elven boots do, and inspect bags carefully to determine whether they're bigger on the inside than the outside? Give them a Stone of Time, a Mirror of Unmaking, or, indeed, a Haunted Dagger, and sit back and enjoy the confusion.

Here you have 1001 item names ready for you to attach a description to them. You could do something simple, such as assigning the name Haunted Dagger to an ordinary +1 dagger and producing a ghostly being to attack the characters every few hours. Or you could pick an interesting name and let it spark your imagination: perhaps the Mirror of Unmaking will cause the closest inanimate object it reflects to decompose into its component parts when the command engraved on the back of the mirror is spoken. There are 998 more names on the list, all just waiting to add life and interest to your campaign.

No more "Um, it's just a +1 dagger, nothing special about it; with 1001 Magic Names to choose from, you'll be ready with an instant item name any time you need one.

Original electronic
Scanned image
These products were created by scanning an original printed edition. Most older books are in scanned image format because original digital layout files never existed or were no longer available from the publisher.

For PDF download editions, each page has been run through Optical Character Recognition (OCR) software to attempt to decipher the printed text. The result of this OCR process is placed invisibly behind the picture of each scanned page, to allow for text searching. However, any text in a given book set on a graphical background or in handwritten fonts would most likely not be picked up by the OCR software, and is therefore not searchable. Also, a few larger books may be resampled to fit into the system, and may not have this searchable text background.

For printed books, we have performed high-resolution scans of an original hardcopy of the book. We essentially digitally re-master the book. Unfortunately, the resulting quality of these books is not as high. It's the problem of making a copy of a copy. The text is fine for reading, but illustration work starts to run dark, pixellating and/or losing shades of grey. Moiré patterns may develop in photos. We mark clearly which print titles come from scanned image books so that you can make an informed purchase decision about the quality of what you will receive.
Original electronic format
These ebooks were created from the original electronic layout files, and therefore are fully text searchable. Also, their file size tends to be smaller than scanned image books. Most newer books are in the original electronic format. Both download and print editions of such books should be high quality.
