Itlachiayaque is the Archeologist quest artifact in dNetHack and notdNetHack, 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 roundshield made of obsidian.


Itlachiayaque grants magic resistance, telepathy and half spell damage while carried, and grants fire resistance and dragonbreath reflection while worn. Invoking Itlachiayaque allows the character to create a mass of poison clouds similar to the read scroll of stinking cloud.

Encyclopedia entry

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.
