  3. Description: In the back of every Sunday issue of the Ribcage Informant is a mail-order section, listing various goods for sale, as well as a foldable box made of enchanted papyrus, and an itemized order form for easy filling. In order to place an order, all that you have to do is write down what goods you want and in what quantity, put the order and your money (shipping and handling included) into the box, and seal it. Once the box is sealed, it will magically teleport to Marvelous Margarita's headquarters, where your order will be processed, and then delivered to you via magic transport.
  5. ///// Weapons /////
  7. Lasso Leash (Tag: Ranged): A long coil of sturdy rope, made from monster's hair and enchanted by a skilled wizard with a penchant for pet monsters. On one end is a handle bound with lizardskin leather, and on the other is an adjustable lasso loop. When an enemy is at or below 50% health, the lasso can be thrown at them to capture them, and the captured enemy must roll against the capture roll in order to resist it, which is not instant and takes one of their actions for the turn. If they fail, they are subdued by the lasso's magic, and made into the user's captive. If they are a non-sapient creature such as a monster, they can be made into a minion, with appropriate adjusted stats for balance purposes. A sapient creature can't be made into a minion, but is at the user's mercy until they are released.
  8. Price: 300 Bits
  10. Official Crimson King Brand Duplicoins™ (Tags: Great, Ranged): A bag of fake, enchanted coins that look quite convincing to all except those who are experts in forgery. The coins magically register the first person that touches them. When they are touched by another person, they explode with the force of a small firecracker. They are often used as bombs in combat, but this enchantment gives them a variety of unconventional uses in other situations (such as secretly planing them on an unwitting target). Individually, they aren't very powerful, and attacks with them deal 1 fewer hit of damage, down to a minimum of 1 per attack. However, their ease of use means that Cleave attacks made with them have a -2 to their critfail range. After the coins explode, they magically regenerate within the bag.
  11. Price: 250 Bits
  13. Bassetrang (Tag: Ranged): A boomerang carved from the wood of a peculiar tree whose scent dogs seem to love. A basset hound's head in profile is etched into either side. It can be used as a weapon, but is most often favored for its enchantment. Like the hunting dogs that share its name, this boomerang sniffs out objects of interest, and highlights them for the user once it returns. The boomerang can also be used to swipe an object from a far-off target and bring it back to the user, or to transport an item from the user to the target. For example, one can steal an enemy's weapon from afar with the boomerang, or it can transport a healing potion to someone's ally faster than it would take for the user to get to the ally on foot.
  14. Price: 200 Bits
  16. ///// Minions /////
  18. The Clockwork Orange: A clockwork minion that disguises itself as a humble orange. In actuality, this minion is an enchanted spyglass mounted inside a clockwork, spider-like body, including eight legs that can fold in on themselves, and it has an orange-like outside for a disgusie. The minion comes with a remote control, and in the center of the remote is a scrying orb linked to the minion's spyglass, which transmits everything that the minion is able to see. It cannot attack, but can record video and audio.
  19. H/W: 4/4
  20. Skills: Disguise (Orange), Stealth, Innocent (when disguised), Record (Automatic: Captures video and audio footage of whatever the spyglass is looking at).

Grants the use of Master Thief to those who don't have it, and those who do have it gain a -2 Crit Range instead.
  33. Price: 200 Bits
  35. Sea-Servant's Ring: A silver ring with an inscription of a sea-pony on it. The term Sea-Servant refers to a mysterious religious order whose members are comprised of the various sea-pony tribes that wander the world's oceans. The Sea-Servants protect endangered fish species, remove litter and other pollutants from the water, and rescue crews that are lost at sea. However, they are also sometimes accused of luring crews with beautiful songs to their deaths, or creating storms and whirlpools to attack ships that hunt in waters that they arbritrarily declare to be under their protection after the fact. In spite of these rumors, they are generally looked to as heroes, so long as you stay on their good side.
  36. Effect: Allows one to communicate with any creature that lives underwater.
  37. Price: 100 Bits
  39. Poisondrinker Pendant: A murky green pendant with a piece of obsidian inlaid in the center.

Using it to fake his death, the prince escaped the kingdom, and returned with a fleet of pirates to retake his rightful inheritance.

One such branch of their magic is called "The Art of Flow," which deals with traveling via water, such as swimming, sailing, surfing and even riding on sea-creatures. This cider acts as a shot of temporary mastery in the Art of Flow. After you consume it, you become greatly skilled at all sorts of water-based travel. If you pick up a surfboard, you can surf as though you were an old pro. If you decide to swim, you are as mobile as a dolphin and have the stamina to match. If you steer a boat, you can handle it against any rough and stormy currents. And, if you are in the water and can manage to get ahold of a sea-critter big enough to support your weight, you can take command of it as if it were an obedient steed. Lasts for 24 hours.
