Items of HeroesEdit
Not all magic items were held in the hands of a legendary hero, but most have been in the hands of an anonymous hero, or have felt the touch of many heroes belonging to a heroic group. Below lies some of these items.
Many great weapons are one of a kind, gaining noteriety along with its wielder; some weapons on the other-hand are great or even better, held by heroes of a mighty caliber but never reach the status of the legendary weapons. Still some are created for groups of heroes and though they are not unique they are uniquly deadly.
This blade’s edge is as jagged as a fanged maw, and its steel is dull and gray. Used commonly by the Gray Wolves, this weapon heightens the users sences and makes the warrior almost impossible to surprise. 2
If one plans on being a hero than they are going to need some armor.
Hood of the WolfEdit
Fashioned from the head of a great gray wolf, this helm frames the wearer’s face in the open maw of the beast, and it crowns them with its red eyes granting the wearer supernatural sences. Supposedly the first Hood of the Wolf was created and worn by the legendary warlord Maldeen, though now it is commonly worn by the Packmasters of the Gray Wolves. 2
Even heroes need trinkets, Magical?... even better.
Greaves of MaldeenEdit
Wolf fur rings this enchanted leg armor, created by Maldeen himself, this very rare item grants the wearer supernatural speed. 2

Items of EvilEdit
Some items are only wielded by monsters. Some are only crafted by monsters. Some are only made for monsters by monsters.
Evil forces constantly search for new ways to inflict pain and spill blood, here are some of the weapons used by the forces of evil
The first of these weapons was built from the shattered blade of a sword wraith, though other techniques now work just as well. The wraithblade is designed to inflict the most possible damage while the enemy is caught off-guard. 3
The study of arcane energies causes many to go mad. Which explains the commonplace nature of evil created arcane implements. And even evil gods must have clerics, thus explaining the presence of evil holy symbols.

Warforged Exclusve ItemsEdit
All warforged share the capability to modify themselves with knick-knacks, armor, doo-dads, and weapons; but some items cannot be used unless attached or embedded into a warforged. There are also some items exclusively meant for the race.

Docents are sentient, and designed to help the warforged which they are embedded in. They are well versed in one skill and have the ability to talk through their warforged wearer. 1
