Pathetic Boots: These enchanted boots were once the property of a deadly assassin fond of chasing down his prey. He moved with such speed that his targets often didn't have the oppurtunity to respond, even on horseback. Over time, the assassin's fame spread, and though his name was never known, all knew to fear the words last heard by his victims:  'You can hide, but you cannot run!'
Destiny: The true weapon of a modern warrior, Destiny is not a sword in the traditional sense, but a nanotechnologically constructed blade that is dynamically 'forged' on command into a non-eutactic solid. Nanoscale whetting devices insure that the blade is both unbreakable and lethally sharp.
Shinji: A shaped crystal of solid ice, this blade is kept at absolute zero by many enchantments - while the wielder is protected from the unearthly cold, the blade will bring a deadly chill to those it strikes.
Heaven's Blade: A kingly sword, doing a kingly amount of damage in the hands of a kingly warrior.
Bug Shield: A shield full of packets of pheromones which can be released to call a bug. What do you mean, 'the pheromones wouldn't do that'? Well, it must be magic, then. Yes. A wizard did it.
Crystal Water: When imbibed, this bottle of premium water instantly restores 500 of your precious Health Points. Or Hit Points, if you think they're called that. It also causes severe diarrhoea, nausea, hallucinations, and malignant tumours, but that's not relevant.
Blood Drinker: This item is expensive! You should be proud to have purchased it!
Excalibur: No, this doesn't have anything to do with King Arthur's sword. Nothing at all. It's not even a reference to it or anything.
Wizard's Boots: Genuine magical boots! Whoops... I'll just remove this made in China sticker... Doesn't belong to this item, obviously!
Endless Potion: An ancient bottle containing a powerful healing salve. How can it refill itself and defy physics is still a mystery.
Legendary Wyrm's Head: The severed head of a wyrm. There is a hint of power in its depths, but it would fetch a good price at market regardless -- collectors love these things.
Manslayer: A large, serrated axe with little decoration.
Guado Armor: A suit of leather armour with metal plates underneath for added protection, or something.
A Bag of Worms: WHY A BAG FULL OF WORMS?! WHY?! WHAT DOES THAT HAVE TO DO WITH ANYTHING?! IT DOESN'T FIT IN ANYWHERE AT ALL!! I JUST DON'T UNDERSTAND!!
Evil Eye: This eye seems to be looking directly into your very soul... Ooooo~!
Bone Armor: This item's name might make you think that it's an armour suit made from bones, but you'd be right if you thought that. Completely correct.
Behearm: Despite its enormous size, this halberd can actually fit inside a small treasure chest. Which is interesting.

Along the shore the cloud waves break,
The twin suns sink behind the lake,
The shadows lengthen
In Carcosa.

Strange is the night where black stars rise,
And strange moons circle through the skies,
But stranger still is
Lost Carcosa.

Songs that the Hyades shall sing,
Where flap the tatters of the King,
Must die unheard in
Dim Carcosa.

Song of my soul, my voice is dead,
Die thou, unsung, as tears unshed
Shall dry and die in
Lost Carcosa.

Bloodlust Mask: Express yourself in the most violent way possible with this mask!
Aerial Sword: This sword comes with an 80's paint job.
Windy Staff: Rated at F3 on the Fujita scale, this staff is capable of relocating an entire house over the rainbow.
Jade Blade: Made of pure jade, this sword attracts both the ladies and nasty cracks.
Skeleton Cape: Wearing a cape into combat is a very stupid thing. All I have to do is step on your cape, and NECK SNAP! Stephen Hawking is teaching you how to use your fancy new wheelchair.
Mask of Illusion: Facial hair mishap? Bad haircut? Need to rob a bank? This mask solves all those problems and more!
Soldier's Set: It may look crummy, but it's better than working in an office. Making bucks, getting exercise, working outside.
Shadow Armor: If movies have taught us anything, it's that wearing black makes you perfectly invisible to baddies. Always.
Adamantine Guard: The most modern armour suit known to man is still really awkward to remove when you have to go to the bathroom in a hurry.
Arctic Gloves: Cooler than cool is this pair of gloves!
Bear Fur: Made from coarse cloth and bear hide, bringing out your inner Viking may also bring out a nasty rash.
Thunder Ring: Do not go swimming with this on.
Poison Knife: A knife filled with deadly poison. Well, what kind of poison? It doesn't matter!
Death Spike: Juggling this would be a bad idea.
I hope Aero still cares about this thing...

Seems not.

Evil Eye: This eye can see into the hearts of men. Which are full of blood, I suppose.
Yin and Yang: These swords' names are in Chinese, even though China isn't a nation in this game.
Bone Armor: This item's name might make you think that it's an armour suit made from bones, but you'd be right if you thought that. Completely correct.
Animal Set: A suit of armour probably made of the skins of animals that were ritually sacrificed or something.
Message to Farmer Allan/Albert/Billy: A message to Farmer Allan/Albert/Billy. You can't read it though. Why? Because. Shut up.
Outer Stone/Inner Stone: A magical runestone that's totally not a potato.
Summoner's Amulet: This item is expensive! You should be proud to have purchased it!

Holy Sword: This sword seems very pleased that you took time out of your busy day to pull it from the stone.
Crystool: Channelling the arcane and odd, the fearsome and strange, often requires implements both unexpected and unwieldy.
End of an Era: It is said that to wield this sword is to pierce the flow of time, to witness a thousand seasons unfold in a day, and to walk unhindered through ages past and future.
Ice Diamond: Hey, could someone put the heater on? This diamond is freezing cold!
Battlemage Set: This robe and wizard hat is guaranteed to have you mistaken for any number of famous wizards.
Azure Visage: While not as sturdy as a proper helmet, this mask is better tuned to project words of power.
Winter's Tear: Carved of stone and glacial ice, its edge is said to be cold enough to freeze the very souls of its victims.
Blue Binkie: This novelty item is funny enough to reduce some folks to tears on sight. Try it as a pick-me-up when you're feeling down.
Zelmet: This helmet is said to have seen battle in a dozen wars, yet those who look upon it believe it to be new.
Manslayer: While this axe has **** and chipped on the lives of hundreds, it has never failed to finish the job.
Arctic Gloves: The ice on this pair of gloves never seems to melt.
Leviathan Armor: This armour is tough as a tank.
Reaper's Scythe: Consider yourself lucky that you aren't on the receiving end.
Destiny: The very best there is. When you absolutely, positively,... can we just say it's a really sweet sword?
Doomsday: Each swing counts down toward the end of time.
