                                             worn:

Candelabrum of Invocation   Candelabrum      -  	 -	   -



Invoking effects:

 death-gaze:     If your luck is < -9: "The Eye turns on you!" -- You die!
                 Otherwise: "The Eye looks around with its icy gaze!"
                  All monsters within sight wich are not undead get their HP
                  lowered to 1/3. (but not lower than to 1HP)
                  "The <foo> screams in agony!"
                  Then your alignment and luck are lowered by 3!

 in:             invisibility

 the bell:       If You aren't underwater:
                  If You are swallowed:
                   If the BoO isn't cursed:
                    You are released.
                  Elsif The bell is cursed:
                   (level_difficulty() + 1)/10 + d5 undead are created.
                  Elsif on the Vibrating square:
                   "The Bell of Opening issues an unsettling shrill sound..."
                    You have completed one of the three tasks required for
                   "opening" the square.
                 
                  Of course, the bell opens stuff.

   level_difficulty(): If in endgame: = sanctumlevel + XPlev/2
                       Else: If you have the Amulet: = deepest lev. reached by U
                             Else: = dungeon level you're on.

 raise dead:     "You turn the pages of the Book of the Dead..."

                 If you're on the Vibrating square AND:
                  None of Book,Bell or Candelabrum are cursed, the Candelabrum
                  is lit and the Bell is recently rung: You "open" the stairs to
                  the sanctum.

                 When you read the Book of the Dead without being on the
                 vibrating square, it still has some specials...

                 If the Book is cursed: "You raised the dead!"
                  There is a 1/3 chance of a Master Lich or Nalfeshnee being
                  created. Then one egg/corpse from each inventory slot will
                  be reanimated.
                  Lastly some random undead creatures are made.
                        (Same no. as when ringing the cursed bell)

                 If the Book is blessed:
                  Undead creatures within sight are made peaceful.
                  Next to you & co-aligned:
                   Your pet undead is made a bit more tame, and if you
                   have same alignment a taming is attempted.
                  Otherwise:
                   It is made scared.

                 If the Book is uncursed:(three possible messiages)
                  "Your ancestors are annoyed with you!"
                  "The headstones in the cemetery begin to move!"
                  "Oh my!  Your name appears in the book!"

 summon-undead:  If your luck is < -9: "The Hand claws you with its icy nails!"
                  You get d20 +4 damage!
                 Else: "Creatures from the grave surround you!"
                  You summon d4 +3 random tame undead monsters!
                  Equal chances of: Vampires, Zombies, Mummies, Ghosts or
                  Wraiths.
                  Then your alignment and luck are decreased by 3!



Sp-attacks:(Where expl. is needed)

 drain:          +d8 Dam, will also lower maxhp with same
                 amount and decrease Exp.Lev by one(-1)

 Nonaligned:     Extra damage against targets of different alignment


Wielded/worn or carried effects: (Where expl. is needed)
 end-portals:    When worn in the endgame, AoY will get warmer as you close in
                 on the magic-portal to the next level.

 1/2S-Dam:       Half spell damage
 1/2HP-Dam:      Half physical damage
 c:              cold resistance
 d:              drain resistance
 dr-Str-res:     "drain strength resistance"
 i:              intelligent
 luck:           acts as luckstone
 light:          lights area around you with radius of 2
 mana-drain:     AoY causes spells to cost more power to cast.
 regen:          regeneration
 s:              automatic searching
 se:             "seeking" ->helps searching
 st:             stealth



?       artifacts of Nehwon...   source:"/* KMH -- Do we really need these? */"
        It seems they've been removed. Too bad, "Scalpel" seemed fun :-(
        Atleast "Scalpel" and "Cat's claw" added something to the game, the
        usefulness of "Cat's Claw" is limited though.

!-      Can be "created" by 'N'aming an object of the same class (see col. 3)
!!-     Will not be randomly generated (Property of Sam :-)


*    Magicbane and Mjollnir are special.

--*************************************************************************--

     "Magicbane
       (neutral athame)
       Carried
         No effect.
       Wielded
         +3 to hit and +d4 damage to all monsters.
         May also probe, stun, scare, or purge (see section below).
         Confers magic resistance.
         Protects inventory against 95% of curses.
       Invoked
         No effect.
       Note: You can also engrave "Elbereth" with any noncursed athame and
         it won't dull the weapon.

     Mjollnir
       (neutral war hammer)
       Carried
         No effect.
       Wielded
         +5 to hit and +d24 damage against monsters that are NOT shock-
         resistant.
         Can only be thrown when you have strength 25 (such as with gauntlets
         of power) and you are wielding it.  When thrown by Valkyries and you
         are not confused, stunned, blind, hallucinating, or fumbling, there
         is a 99% chance that the artifact will return to your hand.
         Can only be kicked one square.
       Invoked
         No effect.
       Note: Does NOT provide shock resistance!
