Itlachiayaque is the Archeologist quest artifact in Hack'EM, which adapts the artifact from L's Itlachiayaque Patch against NetHack 3.4.3. It is the prize for completing the Archeologist quest, and is lawful for generation purposes. Its base item type is a shield of reflection made of gold.


For Archeologists, the Minion of Huhetotl is always generated with Itlachiayaque.


Itlachiayaque confers confers ESP, fire resistance and half spell damage while carried, and confers reflection as normal while worn. Invoking Itlachiayaque causes a mass of poison clouds to generate, with the cloud centered on a non-Archeologist character, while an Archeologist can select the square to center the cloud on as with a scroll of stinking cloud.

Tezcatlipoca (Fiery Mirror) was undoubtedly the Jupiter of the
Nahua pantheon. He carried a mirror or shield [ Itlachiayaque ],
from which he took his name, and in which he was supposed to see
reflected the actions and deeds of mankind. The evolution of this
god from the status of a spirit of wind or air to that of the
supreme deity of the Aztec people presents many points of deep
interest to students of mythology.
