Arcane items are items that enhance a Wizard's magical powers in some fashion. Only a character with a Wizard level can carry Arcane Items. Characters with no sensitivity to magical essences and mysteries will either find an Arcane Item useless and inert, or have their brains sucked out through their ears should they try to use it. Unlike other magic items; Wizards can take up to two Arcane Items. If they do so, one of their Arcane items must be marked as "one use only". Note that they may not take two "one use only" items.

This scroll of parchment contains an anti-magical enchantment so powerful that it may permanently destroy the spell of an enemy wizard.
One use only. When an enemy cast a spell, the bearer may immediately counter its effects by reading the Destroy Magic Scroll to release the spell written upon it instead of attempting to dispel the spell by using dispel dice. This gives them 6 free dispel dice to attempt to dispel the spell, which cannot be combined with any other dispel dice (Ultimate Power applies as normal). In addition, roll a D6. On a 4+, the spell is destroyed and the enemy caster loses access to the spell for the rest of the game (note that this has no effect on Innate).
One use only. When an enemy spell has been cast, a Wizard who has a Feedback Scroll can read it instead of attempting to dispel the spell. The spell is cast as normal, but, after the spell has been resolved, roll a dice for every dice used to cast the spell. The casting Wizard suffer 1 Wound whichfor every result of 5+ rolled.
One use only. When an enemy spell has been cast, a Wizard who has a Hex Scroll can read it instead of attempting to dispel the spell. The spell is cast as normal, but a portion of the spell's energy is transformed and redirected at the caster. The enemy wizard can resist the spell's effects by rolling equal to or under his wizard level on a D6. If he fails, an amphibian transformation takes hold and he becomes a small, slimy toad! Whilst transformed, the wizard cannot channel or cast spells, all of his magic items and mundane equipment (armour, weapons, etc.) temporarily stop working and all of his characteristics are reduced to 1 (except for his wounds, which are unaffected). His controlling player can roll a D6 at the start of each of his subsequent magic phases; the spell dissipates on a roll of 4+ and the wizard returns to his normal form (but still attempts to eat flies for several days afterward).
The Rod of Power is carved from wood and inlaid with runes of ruby and jet. A nimbus of multi-coloured light plays about it when it is in the hands of a wizard. The Rod of Power is capable of storing power drawn from the winds of magic.
At the end of each magic phase (yours and enemy's), you can save up to three unused power/dispel dice from the pool and store them in the rod. At the beginning of each successive magic phase (yours and enemy's), roll a dice. If the result is equal or higher to the number of dice stored, add them to the power/dispel dice pool, if the result is lower than the number of dice stored, they are lost.

This may also be used to dispel spells that Remains in Play.
