Proposed Canon

Magic Item is an item that is both magical and made by a mortal. An item with magical powers created by the Titans is called an Artifact.[1]


Known Magic Items


Stanley the Tool and his main subordinates (Wanda Firebaugh, Sizemore Rockwell, and Parson Gotti) carry eyebooks. They resemble ordinary hardback books, of variable size (see below). They were created by Stanley's trio of linked casters, using the three disciplines of Eyemancy (Lookamancy, Thinkamancy, and Foolamancy). Once created, they function under their own power, and continued to do so after the trio was unlinked.

An eyebook is able to transcribe messages from the user's thoughts and send them to another user's Eyebook. Parson also uses his to keep a journal (called a "Klog", derived from "book log", in the same way that a real-world term "blog" is derived from "web log"). Eyebooks also have the ability to change size, conveniently shrinking to be easily carried and growing to a size suitable for Parson.

The name is a pun on the iBook type of laptop computer.

Flying Carpet

Prince Ansom has a flying carpet. It resembles a conventional carpet, either rolled up (which is Ansom's usual style of riding) or spread out. The type of magic it uses has not been specified.

The carpet is able to carry at least two riders.

Message Hats

Ansom has a pair of message hats. They resemble fancy-dress top hats. Presumably, they use Hat Magic, but this has not been specified.

A written message may be placed into the sending hat and transmitted to the receiving hat (which rumbles to alert the owner). These particular hats only work in one direction; however, other hats capable of two-way communication may exist. (Upon being given the sending hat of the pair, Jillian Zamussels asked if it was "dual use" and was told that it was "abjuration only". This appears to imply that the former term describes a two-way hat and the latter describes a one-way sending hat.)

Parson's Paper 3-D Goggles

This is a Stupid Meal item that gives Parson one of the abilities normally associated with his rank as warlord. It gives its wearer the ability to view the stats of a unit such as move, hit, attack, and defense as well as any special abilities. This is an innate ability that all warlord and caster units in Erfworld possesses, but is lacking in Parson as he's from a different universe [2].

Parson's Bracer

A plastic bracer that arrived in Parson's Stupid Meal. With a neat little groove for his calculator watch to fit into. Apparently a powerful Mathamancy based item (or possibly an Artifact[3]) of great interest to Mathamancy dependant factions like CharlesComm[4][5].

The Sword of Lord Hamster

Another item that arrived in Parson Gotti's Stupid Meals - this time in pieces over three meals. According to the box it came in (a Luckamancy Charms cereal box to be precise) it is the final element of the upgrades necessary to turn Parson into the Perfect Warlord that the summoning spell intended him to be. The other elements being his 3D Glasses and Parson's Bracer. Stated abilities include bonuses to Leadership, Combat and Ruthlessness.
