The Rogue Gear-Spirits is the gnomish Ranger quest artifact in dNetHack. It is the prize for completing the Gnomish Ranger Quest, and is neutral-aligned. Its base item type is a crossbow.

When carried, The Rogue Gear-Spirits confers telepathy, warning and fire resistance. When wielded, it grants +1d5 to-hit and double damage, both to each arrow fired and to any damage it does in melee - when using it as a melee weapon, it is treated as a double-damage pick-axe that deals piercing and blunt damage. Wielding the artifact additionally confers automatic searching and adds its enhancement as a bonus to manual search attempts.

Invoking The Rogue Gear-Spirits allows you to untrap an applicable square. Firing crossbow bolts from The Rogue Gear-Spirits will always shoot at least 2 bolts instead of 1; if no ammo is quivered, it will automatically create and fire +0 crossbow bolts. Applying The Rogue Gear-Spirits allows you to dig as with a pick-axe, and each application will cause the artifact to supply a random rumor; the rumor will be true or false based on the artifact's beatitude.
