When the randomized appearance of a particular item seems especially "appropriate" for its function in a particular game, using it will provide a small bonus. This is known as appearance aptness. See below for a list of special effects. (Note that the regular effects also still occur; in general, for example, you do not want to read a scroll of amnesia for a luck bonus.)
