Noteworthy Items

Carpet of Orestes: Lesser Enchanted Device

Obtained as a gift from the covenant of Pyramids I during the Alabaster Lioness Expedition, the carpet was enchanted by Orestes of Bonisagus and given to Roberto to solve a logistical problem he has with is entourage. Johan cannot ride upon a ship with women, and one of his key members, Wen, is a woman and the (effectively wife) of another key henchman Allen (his big bruiser). So Wen often rides the carpet and scouts ahead of Johans ship, with Cidito tagging along to maintain communication.

Kindness: Exceptional Weapon

Statistics: Init +2, Atk +7, Def +1, Dmg +9
Roberto has gone through several swords in his career. Clemente, his old longsword named after his father, was given as a gift to his sodale Wirth. Carlita was a sword he used for a short time during the Shadow Wars, which was disintegrated by Rassus. Santiago, named for his mentor from whom it was received as a gift, was lost in the boiling sea. Kindness was crafted by Pedro, using Vandium steel and the Toledo style, to prove the point that he could craft a blade as fine as Santiago. He did better. When Pedro was slain in battle, he gave the sword to Roberto and whispered his dying breath "…kill them with kindness…". Roberto accepted the sword and was going to name it Vengador, but then noticed Pedro had already inscribed the name "Kindness" upon it.
