Current Description: June 20, 2011

Tall and slender, but not as sylph-like as many of his kind, the half-elf
before you looks more human than elf.  He carries himself, though, with the
poise and grace of the ageless ones.  Piercing green eyes that miss nothing
are set within a pale-skinned, deeply-lined face - lines that suggest a
readiness to smile, but speak also of hurt and pain.

He is attired head-to-foot in dark leather, bearing the marks of many
battles, both physical and magical.  A dark cloak lays across his broad
shoulders and a cowl conceals much of his face.  Although his armour is
clearly travel-worn, each tear is neatly repaired, each cut patched and
reinforced.  Intricate rings adorn the ring finger of each hand, and an
understated yet clearly precious amulet encircles his neck, partly hidden
amongst the folds of his clothing.  In his hand he carries a lethal
sword, its blade dulled, not through neglect, but deliberately so as to
prevent detection.  A subtle magic arcs and rolls from hilt to tip, as if
alive to his touch.

Whooz leads a charmed life.
Whooz is in perfect health.

Because Robert hated to do restrings, all of the restrings Whoz had, were written by Cordir.or Quest prizes from God+:

a mithril band, inscribed 'Vengeance'

<worn on finger> (Artifact magic) a mithril band, inscribed 'Vengeance
long description: A barely-perceptible, pulsing aura surrounds this thick mithril band.
At first glance this ring appears to simply be a thick, plain mithril band.
However, looking more closely, myriad letters seem to appear and disappear all
over it's surface, forming words in many strange and ancient scripts. At last
you see one that you recognize and the word you see fills you with dread: 'Vengeance'.

a heavy travelworn black wool cloak

<worn around neck> (Artifact magic) a heavy travelworn black wool cloak
Long Description: Mud and brambles stain the hem of this heavy cloak made of fine black wool.

Look Cloak:
Barely visible beneath the mud and brambles gathered from long
hours spent travelling the wilderness, the hem of this lovely
black wool cloak has been worked in a pattern of interwoven
rings. They are subtly worked in a deep blue color that is not
easily seen against the black background.

a pair of black leather swordsman's gauntlets

<worn on hands> (Potent magic) a pair of black leather swordsman's gauntlets
Long Desctiption: These gauntlets have the reinforced palm and flared cuff needed by swordsmen.

Look Gauntlets:
With a wide cuff to protect full sleeved garments, and a thickly
reinforced palm, these gloves were designed to serve as protection
for the hands of a swordsman. Made of supple yet strong leather,
they have been decorated with a narrow line of embroidery using
bright gold thread and tiny gemstones.

an ebon spider from the Lady's web

<Worn as Light> (Aglow) an ebon spider from the Lady's web Long Description: This small ebon spider blinks all eight eyes and looks for the Lady's friend.

LOOK keywords:

Keywords: Ebon Spider
Extras: Ebon Spider | Prize

LOOK prize:

Given as a prize for winning The Great Race, at 5am on Searynx the 11th, 
the month of the Deities' Wrath, in the year 2587.
The system time is Thu Apr 10 18:04:11 2003

LOOK ebon spider:

It is difficult to tell if this is a natural or unnatural creature, as there are
are many things about it that not 'normal' for its kind: foremost being its size.
Nearly a hand-span in width, it has long, chitinous legs that end in small barbs.
A bright crimson hourglass is visible upon its belly, and this easily recognized
symbol glows with a dull ruby-colored light. Its eyes bear a jewel-like facetted
brilliance, each a tiny crimson orb. It blinks slowly, and bares its tiny little
fangs in what you can only assume is a smile or grin of sorts. Dipping slightly,
it appears to bow.

It says softly (in ancient Thoras), 'I serve the Lady by lighting the way for one
She names as valued friend.'

Thranerin, the night-slayer rapier

<wielded> (Potent magic) (Heathen) Thranerin, the night-slayer rapier
Long Description: Forged by the smiths of the Old World, Khore acquired this great weapon on one of his travels and gave it as a gift to Whoz.
Damage is 13 to 20 (average 16). This item resists your further efforts to identify.
