1. Taborlin's Tools:
taborlin's Key
Taborlin's Coin
taborlin's Candle

Not sure what they should, do, probably these are UR and boost spell casting.

In universe Taborlin is a legendary hero wizard, probably lawful good, and his Key, Coin, and Candle are his tools that he uses in stories to perform magic feats.

2. Folly - named sword, usable by Babarian, Bard, Fighters, Ranger, Rogue. Basically a +2 longsword, maybe it's immune to baneful magical effects?

3. Shaed Cloak - Not sure the TD effect, the in world effects include: makes you hard to see in the dark, can change shape/form at will (the cloak, not you), somewhat prehensile, and provides AC/damage reduction.

4. Gram - a charm, amulet, or figurine, would provide immunity or protection from magic.

In universe this is a name for an item when worn against the skin negates harmful magic directed at the wearer.

5. Sympathy Lamp - 300 GP light source (similar to 50 GP compass)

In universe Sympathy Lamps are always on lights of alchemical production, they are expensive.

6. Tehlu's Holy Symbol - May turn something else as undead. Fae? Evil outsiders?

In universe Tehlu is basically a good god. There are not (I think?) undead in Rothfuss' world. "Demons" exist, but are somewhat nebulously defined as perhaps warped Fae, or maybe actually something else.

7. Mhenka oil - Oil for ranged/melee weapons, on hit target must pass DC-?? or sleep/stupor/stunned? (or, maybe instead of an oil this is a munition like a Mhenka laced arrow).

Mhenka in universe is an herb that induces sleep/stupor.

8. For GP tokens the unit of currency in universe in the region of Cealdish are: Gold Marks, Silver Talents, Copper Jots, and Iron Drabs.

I'm sure I'll have more as I reread the books.

Still think we should have a sword usable by a Wizard.

I miss the days when Gandalf was the only wizard that wielded a sword. And, that was among all the genres out there of sci-fi/fantasy.

Much like Jean Grey and Marvel Boy were the only TKers in comic books that were able to telekinetically lift and fly themselves. Now it seems any newbie with TK powers can overcome that. :blink:

Wow almost 80 years and you don't expect any more wizards with swords. Not sure when the first appeared in a novel, but I know for sure they existed in 2nd Ed. D&D (nearly 30 years ago)... so I would guess before that in writing.

I won't even try with the Comics.

What is this 2nd Edition D&D thing you speak of!?! Is it some imaginary thing based off 1st Edition D&D??

It could be 500 years and I would still expect Gandalf to be the only sword-wielding Wizard. The same for Jean Grey being the only telekinetic to overcome the mental "phobia" of being able to lift herself.

I know they say copying is the best form of flattery, but I disagree. Copying is just a huge lack of imagination and creativity

Having just one is boring... if there is one then more than likely there are more, whether it's sword weilding wizards or flying telekinetics.

Not that I disagree but doesn't that also mean each idea can only be used once and never improved upon.

When it comes to DnD editions after the 2nd, none of those were improvements in IMO..

IMO

d&d cool but painfully incomplete
ad&d fixed almost everything wrong with basic
2nd tweaks, IMO the best one in terms of freedom

3rd-pathfinder Starting to feel like anime but still feels like d&d I can still live with it.

4th good game but doesnt feel like d&d at all anymore. More like warhammer and world of warcraft had a baby.

5th Feels like d&d again but painfully incomplete again. Way to swingy, good for casuals/ encounters but beyond that need a lot of house rules
