At the end of each adventure lies the objective room, the final location, and invariably the greatest challenge to the Warriors. Upon dealing with the contents of the objective room the Warriors normally get a Treasure card.

Now you are using the Treasure Tables, however, you should instead roll a D66 on the following table for each surviving Warrior to determine the precise nature of the treasure he has found. The items are split up between the Warriors in the most appropriate fashion.


Ring of Seeking (BDEW) 500G

This glittering ring is fashioned from some material that looks like quicksilver. Once placed on the finger, the ring shifts and changes as a shining, liquid-metal band.

This ring allows your Warrior to attempt to avoid a trap he has just activated.

Roll 1D6. On a score of 1, 2 or 3 the ring's magic fails to work and the trap goes off as normal. On a score of 4, 5 or 6 the trap is magically disarmed and fails to work.


Chalice of Sorcery (W) 700G

This dull metal chalice sits in a small alcove in the wall, covered in verdigris and cobwebs. Rubbing the grime of years from its pitted surface, the Wizard recognises it as a Chalice of Sorcery.

The Chalice of Sorcery acts as a source of Power that allows the Wizard to carry on casting spells when his own Power has run out.

The Wizard can try to draw as many points of Power out of the Chalice as he likes. For every point of Power the Wizard draws to cast spells with, roll a D6. All the extra Power must be drawn at once 5o all the dice are rolled at the same time. For each dice that scores a 1 the Wizard loses 1D6 Wounds. with no modifiers for Toughness or armour.


Enchanted Jade Amulet (BDEW) 600G

The amulet of enchanted jade looks like a stone washed up on a beach, worn smooth by the action of the sea.

The Amulet of Enchanted Jade allows your Warrior to attempt to regenerate (1 x his Battle-level) wounds per turn, up to his Starting Wounds score. Each turn that your Warrior uses the amulet roll 1D6 on the following table:

1 The amulet crumbles to dust, causing 1D6 Wounds on your Warrior, with no modifier for Toughness or armour.

2 The amulet has no effect this turn.

3-6 The amulet works as usual.

The amulet automatically fails to work while the Warrior wearing it is on zero Wounds.

One use per turn.


Book of Arcane Knowledge (W) 1,000G

This book has a cracked and aged leather cover, with a rusted metal spine and lock. Upon opening it. the pages rustle with a life of their own.

The Book of Arcane Knowledge contains spells that the Wizard may cast. AS soon as the book is found roll 4D6. these dice are used to buy spells for the book in the same way that the Wizard gains spells when he goes up a Battle-level, as described under 'New Spells' in the Wizards' Training section.

Each spell in the book may be cast once automatically at no Power cost. Once a spell has been cast that page of the book crumbles to dust.


Brooch of Power (W) 1,000G

This brooch glows too brightly to look at, as if it contained the energy of a fallen star.

At the end of each turn the Wizard may use the brooch to store any unused Power he has left over, up to a maximum of (6 + his Battle-level). This stored Power may then be used at any time to augment his spellcasting.

In addition, the bright aura cast by the brooch distracts any Monsters attacking the Wizard, adding +1 to his Toughness.


Wand of Jade (W) 600G

This wand is the size of a walking stick and is made from a single piece of fine jade. Strange icons engraved upon its surface glow with power.

This wand increases the effect of any spell that requires you to roll one or more dice for its effects, such as Heal wounds or Lightning Bolt, by adding +2 to the total. Note that the wand does not increase the spell's chance of success in any way.

For example: if the Wizard uses this wand to increase the effects of the Finger of Life spell it still succeeds on a roll of 4, 5 or 6. but now heals 6, 7 or 8 Wounds (depending on the success of the roll).

When found, the wand has 2D6 charges. Each use of the wand expends 1 charge.


Dawnstone (BDEW) 500G

This crystal-like stone is mounted in a black iron brooch and radiates a pale


Rune of Death (BDEW) 500G This stone has a Dwarf rune embossed upon its surface and is warm to the touch.

When pressed into contact with any bladed weapon. the Runestone burns a Rune of Death into the blade and then vanishes. The Rune of Death itself is permanent.

If the to hit roll with this weapon is a natural 6, the Rune of Death causes an extra 2D6 Wounds on the target.


Crown of Sorcery (BDE) 1,000G

As soon as he puts this crown on, the wearer is plunged into the alien and dark world of magical power familiar to Wizards.

The Crown of Sorcery allows any Warrior who is otherwise nonmagical to cast spells and use items of Wizard-only treasure. The Warrior wearing the crown can still wear armour. As soon as your Warrior finds the crown take two Spell cards from each deck at random: these are the spells he may cast.

Each turn your Warrior gets the same amount of raw Power as a Battle-level 1 Wizard (roll 1D6+1 in the Power Phase), and may use it to cast one or more of his spells according to the normal rules.

However, each time your Warrior casts one of his spells roll 1D6. If the score is 1 that spell fails and your Warrior is immobilised by the backlash of magical Power and can do nothing for the rest of the turn. While he is immobilised any attacks made against him hit on anything but a 1.


Talisman of Obsidian (BDEW) 500G

This black talisman throbs dully with the rhythm of a pulsing wound and the air around it hangs heavy.

This talisman negates the powers of any Wizard or other spellcaster adjacent to the wearer. Any spells cast by such models fail on a 1D6 roll of 4, 5 or 6 and the Power used to cast the spell is redirected to heal 1D6 of the wearer's Wounds. If the wearer attempts to cast a spell himself roll 1D6. On a score of 1 the spell fails.


Tablet of Adain (W) 1,000G

This stone tablet weighs surprisingly little and is covered in indecipherable hatching and markings.

When used by a Wizard, the Tablet of Adain allows you to re-roll any or all of his 'spell determining dice' when he goes up a Battle level (see 'New Spells' in the Wizards' Training section).

You may only re-roll each dice once and must take the result of the second roll, even if it is worse.


Armour of Taakan (BD) 1,500G

This matt black suit of full armour - with dull bronze battle runes engraved on the breastplate, arms and helm - is said to be endowed with a life of its own, striking at the enemy no matter what its wearer intends.

Every time an enemy wounds your Warrior the armour immediately retaliates and forces its wearer to strike back straight away. Your Warrior must make a single attack against the enemy that just hit him, in addition to his normal attacks this turn. Note that, if successful, this attack does not cause a death-blow.


Wand of Diabolum (W) 500G

This wand is pure white, shot through with streaks of diabolum, a bright red substance capable of harnessing magical energy.

While using this wand all your Wizard's spells have their casting number reduced by -1.


Ring of Cheshnakk (BDEW) 1,000G

Cheshnakk was a great wizard from Araby whose expertise was the creation of exquisite flying carpets. The pinnacle of his achievements, however, was forging the Rings of Cheshnakk.
