the god of love, abstract desire, and lust. According to some legends, he is not the son of Aphrodite, as many sources claim, but was born when Ge (the Earth) gave birth to the Sky, before the Olympian gods and even before the Titans. Theologians of the time Ieh that wi thout the existence of desire, the later conjugations among the gods, Titans, and other beings would not have occurred. Also, Eros is not always pictured as a winged cherub, which is more properly a description of the Roman Cupid. Eros is often a very handsome youth or young adult. In addition [0 his famous arrows 0/ desire, he has a whip and an axe whicb can produce the same result. All of these items are treated as a +3 to hit (but not [or darnage). They all, however, do real damage and can even be fatal (dying of a "broken heart"). The major effect, though, is that anyone successfully hit by one of these items will fall in love or witl lust after the next being that he or she sees. There is no saving throw, and this effect is applicable even to gods. The desire lasts for at least one week, it may be continued without magic after that. It mayor may not be reciprocated.

El Dorado is the mythical "City of Gold," located somewhere in the New World, that so many explorers died trying to find. The stories about El Dorado vary, but ihe one story tha t seems cl osest to fact says that while performing rei igious ceremonies, the king or high priest of the Indian tribe (generally thought to be Incas or Mayans) coats himself with rosin and is then dusted with pure gold. Lake Guatavita in Colombia was supposedly one site for this ceremony, during which the priest wou Id make a sacrifice in the middle of the lake to a snake god. From th is relati vely typical base exaggera ted stories circulated. These ranged from rich surfate gold veins to a city with pure gold buildings.

-Other functions same as +5 paladin.'s holy avenger sword (see below). ExcalibuT is King Arthur's famous sword. The sword is sometimes called Caliburnus, which possib I derived from the Irish sword y Caladbolg belonging to Fergus. One tradition says that Excalibur is the sword plunged into the stone (or anvil) by Uther Pendragon UPOIl his death, and that only Anhur could draw it out. The tale's earliest version says that the sword in the stone was not Excalibur, but that Excalibur was given to Arthur some time later by Vivian (or by the Lady of the Lake). In any case, the sword Excalibur is dearly of supernatural origin, probably forged in the land of Faerie, or on the Isle of Avalon. Excalibur is a magical sword that funclions only when wielded by a paladin. When used by anyone else, it displays no bonuses to hit or for damage, although it functions at its full +5 potential for its own saving throws. Anyone grasping this sword will be instantly aware of its identity, as the sword allows the holder to instantaneously assimilate its glorious past. The sword will let the holder know what it would be capable of doing, if that character were a paladin. Then the sword will offer the character a chance to miraculously become a paladin. No matter what the character's class or alignment, no matter how evil his past, all sins will be forgiven and the character will be transformed into a paladin equivalent to the character's skill level. The character's alignment is changed to Lawful Good.

Any contrary acts may result in loss of paladinhood per the usual rules. The character holding Excalibur has one minute to make his decision, after which the choice will never again be open to him. The choice will, however, be open 1.0 anyone else who grasps the sword. A paladin holding &calibuT finds he has a +5 paladin's holy sword, with all attendant bonuses: 50% magic resistance in a 5-foot radius; dispel magic in a 5-foot radius at the paladin's experience level; and + J 0 damage ra ther than +5 when used against chaotic evil opponents. In addition, Excalibur functions as a sword of sharpness, using iIS +5 modifier to determine whether or not an extremity is severed. Excalibur's holder, upon displaying or brandishing it, has an effective +5 added to his appeal with regard to those that have seen him with Excalibur .. This gives him a +25% bonus on any morale checks or rolls involving leadership or appeal. This is particularly effective during battle, when demoralized allies wi thin sight of a brandished Excalibur can be helped to rally, or foes can be bastened to flight. &clllibur's scabbllrd is often overlooked, but this is a wondrous magical device in its own right. . When a paladin has Excalibur drawn, he cannot be slain as long as he wears the scabbard. N ega Livehits to kill are accumulated, but the paladin keeps going as j£ he had one poim left. This explains why Arthur was mortally wounded by Mordred, yet stayed alive long enough to be taken to Avalon where he could be healed. Note that this power does not function when Excalibur is sheathed. All negative hits to kill must be healed before positive hits to kill can be restored for the character. Appearance:. Excalibur has a gold hilt that
is in trica tel y carved, except where the hand grips it. It has a pommel with an emerald on one side and a ruby on the other ..The blade gleams like nickel-steel, a good indi-

calion of truesilver. Etched Imo the shiny blade, near the hilt are the words "Rex juris Brinaniae." The brown weatherbeaten leather scabbard is unremarkable but sturdy.

.+2 to combat while riding. -Never permits rid.er to involuntarily

Lancelot du Lac is the mightiest warrior of
King Arthur's knights, and is one of the few opponents ever to beat Arthur in combat. Later stories make him part of the doomed love triangle involving Arthur and Guinevere, resulting in the loss of his paladinhood. He remained Arth ur' s friend, even as their followers prepared for war. Most of his weapons and armor are standard magical items, but he owned one piece of equipment that built his reputation, his magic saddle. This interesting item will never permit its user to involuntarily lose his seat, and adds +2 (+ 10%) to any combat fought while using it. These properties make .it an ideal item for JOUStS and for mounted combat in general. Appearance: This saddle is made of wentooled leather of the finest quaUty and has Lancelot's arms-- Azu.re, three lions passant (three gold lions each with one front paw raised on a blue field)--etched and dyed into its side.

Leander's Girdle

0/ Swimming allowed this youth of classical Greek mythology to

swim the Hellespont to visit Hero, [he girl that he loved. The girdle's wearer will always remain afloat. Even i[ a suong whirlpool pulls everything near him under, the wearer will simply be moved JUSt beyond the whirlpool's reach by virtue of the girdle .. Any wave that would ordinarily inundate the girdle's wearer is crested instead. Even it the wearer wishes to go underwater, the girdle will not let him-it must first be removed. The power of the girdle gives buoyancy even to characters wearing armor. The girdle also permits the wearer to swim at a rate as if he were walking, expending the same amount of effon and energy in so doing .. If an encumbered character walks 9" and an unencumbered character walks 18", the same characters wearing the girdle would be able to swim 9" and 18", respectively. Appear.ance: This wide, light belt is seemingly made of gold thread, but weighs virtually nothing. It is fastened by knotting rather than by buckling. Value: 5,000 gold pieces.

Leprechaun Magic is a folklore still extant
in rural areas of Ireland. The name is derived [rom lu-chorpan, which means "little body." Leprechauns are small, roguish fairy folk who enjovcornests of wits with any mortals who are after their magic. Each leprechaun magic item will be dealt with separately. Crock of Treasure, of which every leprecha un has at least one, is the most common treasure item associated with them. If a leprechaun is caught, he can be forced to reveal wher-e his crock is, but he will take every opportunity to divert and distract his captor. If the captor's eyes leave the leprechaun, even for a moment, the little fellow will laugh and vanish and the treasure will. be lost. A tale is told of one human who kept his eyes fixed on a leprechaun, who led him to a bush beneath w hichthe crock was buried. The human marked the bush with a red ribbon, then hurried home to fetch a shovel. When he returned, not rive minutes later, he saw to his dismay that every bush in the coun t y had been marked with a red ribbon and he heard the dimly echoing sounds of gleeful fairy laughter. Appearance: These earthenware crocks are usuall y unlidded and abou t the size of a tea kettle, Value: IDI0 x 1,000 gold pieces. The treasure is mostly gold, but occasionally has gems or silver mixed in with the gold.

Leprechaun's Staff

Three Wishes can be granted by some leprechauns when they are captured. Ten percent of leprechauns have this power, which they offer to grant instead of revealing their crock of treasure. Wishes will be granted if the proper procedure is followed. but the leprechaun will try to distract or delay the captor. The three wishes must be made within one minute alter the leprechaun offers to do this. If more than three wishes are made (even accidentally in passing with a sentence con taining "I wish ..... or "I want. .. "), all of the wishes are nullified and the leprechaun vanishes. The same thing will occur if the captor takes more than one minute to decide upon his wishes, or i( he lakes his eyes off the leprechaun at any point during the process. The normal GM caution and attitude toward wishes should be extended: grant the little wishes and try to twist the big or greedy wishes into something unpleasant. H at any time the character wishes for "more wishes," he is immediately granted them, which then exceeds the limit of three and immediately nullifies them all. Leprechaun's Staff

If the destination is within the range, there is no problem. If the destination is farther than the range, the character is teleported along his intended direction of travel but is placed at the distance eq ual to that day's range.

Lia Fail. or the Stone of Fal, was, according to ancient Irish legend, brought from the mythical city of Falias by Lug.
