Bracer of Weapon Storage

This magical armband is crafted of a silvery unknown metal and coated with a white enamel. One large gemstone will always appear centered on the top of the bracer, and will always be a ruby, emerald or blue shappire. Unlike other magical bracers, a bracer of weapon storage will never be found in pairs. When worn, upon command, it will cause any weapon that the wielder is holding in his hand to instantly dissapear. Infact, the weapon is being stored inside the gem on the bracer. When the command word is spoken again the stored weapon will appear in the hand it was taken from. In order for the weapon to appear in the wearer's hand, the hand must be free and able to grasp the weapon in question. The bracer can only contain one weapon at a time, whether it be a sword, dagger, bow or crossbow. It cannot contain multiple ammunition for any one of these such as a bundle of arrows, but it can store a single arrow. A bracer of weapon storage cannot be used in conjuction with any other enchanted bracer with the acception of the bracer of armor storage.

The Book of the Four Gods

This red leather bound books seems very unordinary to the untrained eye. On the cover, embossed in gold, are four elemental spirits of fire, water, air and earth. Inside the owner of the book will find that very single moment of his life, upon posession of the book, has been written down in it's slightly yellowed pages. No matter how long the owner how the book has kept this book, it's pages will never be filled. The script will always be able to be read by the posesser and will be written in his native script. Those who are illiterate can never read the book. The passages in the book will include such exciting things as battles fought and romantic events but will also contain such tedious things as being fitted at the clothier and what the posesser had for dinner. It will never contain any information that the owner does not know, such as the weaknesses of the green dragon he fought or that the trap he disarmed was poisoned, but will contains those events. When the ownership of the book changes the pages of the previous owner become blank and the new posesser's life begins to be written. Should the same person own the same book twice the tome will just pick up where it left off in the previous story. Other people can read the story within the book, but they must be literate and able to read the posessor's native script. Many bards search for tomes of this nature to record their heroic adventures.
