Troll in the Corner’s
Masks of Magic and more
By Benjamin Gerber with Benjamin Alberti

Welcome to a very special sale! Recently the staff here at Troll in the Corner’s Magical
Emporium was able to unearth a trove of magical items from deep within hidden ruins and far
inside forbidding jungles! We’ve conferred with the finest shaman and witch doctors as well as
the area’s top ranking magical scholars who won our bidding process and can guarantee the
authenticity and effects of these wondrous and strange artifacts!

We have for you today a selection of magical masks utilized in esoteric rituals by the most
barbaric of peoples! And we mean that in no sense to portray barbarians as anything other than
the fine, upstanding and occasionally psychotic individuals who are always welcome to spend
their hard earned coins at our Emporium!

In addition to our selection of magical masks, we’ve unearthed the rarest of intellectual
weapons! Strange shamanic talismans guaranteed to bring luck and vision! A cursed item that
is so vile we can only sell it to licensed collectors! Licenses are available via our scribe for 10
GP per person.

Inside you will find:

The Mask of the Hunter (Wondrous Item)
The Mask of the Prey (Wondrous Item)
The Powder Mask (Wondrous Item)
Quietus Mask (Wondrous Item)
Bag O Bones (Magical Item)
Sword of Minkin'Mar (Intelligent Magical Weapon)
The Ethereal Hook (Magical Item)
The Heart Plug (cursed item)
The Button of Charming (Magical Item)

And a bonus item: The Orcish Mask of Atavus (Wondrous Item) to go along with our soon to
be released The World of Aruneus – The Orcs!
