Bunko's Bargin Basement (v3.0)
« on: November 11, 2011, 10:14:43 PM »
"Yessir, step right up, ladies and gentlemen!  Cedric P. Bunko, at your service...and welcome to Bunko's Bargain Basement!  The old storefront was getting a little rickety, but we're still open for business!

"What, you may ask, is a Bunko's Bargain Basement?  Why, only the finest clearinghouse for magical bargains in seventeen dimensions!

"You see, my friends, every adventurer worth his or her iron rations knows that the right tools make all the
difference between life and death.  But the problem is, adventurers are a busy lot, and they don't always have time to shop around for bargains...and, strictly between you and me, friends, there are a lot of overpriced magical gadgets out there, and people willing to sell them for far more than they're worth.

"Not so here at Bunko's!  Here, we stock only the items which really give you bang for the buck...either those items that are dirt cheap but effective, or the items that may cost a bit more but give you more than you pay for!  Satisfaction is guaranteed at Bunko's!

"For your shopping convenience, items are organized in departments.  Of course, we're always on the lookout for new merchandise...if you have a suggestion for an item we should stock, please feel free to offer it up!

"And now, without further ado, on to the departments...

Please enjoy our selection and don't forget to ask about our buy twenty and get one free deal.

Did I miss something? Tell me what, where to find it, how much it costs, and what it does that makes it awesome. I can update this faster if I don't have to dig for that information.

First Floor: Necklaces, Collars, and Amulets

"Let's face it, adventurers...you can't afford to overlook your neck.  After all, you risk it on a daily basis!  What you need is a little neckwear, and I'm not talking about that ugly tie the Baron got you for your birthday!  The necklaces, amulets, and collars at Bunko's are just what you need to keep neck, body, and head attached!"

"Belts keep you from being caught with your pants down...in more senses than one!  A good belt is more than just a place to hang your sword.  In fact, it can be hard to choose between all of the excellent bargains magical belts offer!  Maybe that's why Hennet the Sorceror likes to wear three of them..."

"A cloak is the single most useful item in the multiverse, next to a towel.  You can sleep under it, you can use it for shade, you can weight the hem and use it as a weapon...and, let's be honest, a nicely-tailored cloak just looks good!"

Fourth Floor: Hats, Headbands, and Helmets

"We all know adventurers who never seem to use their head as anything but a hatrack.  That being the case, they might as well at least have a nice hat to put on it!  The bargains here will not only hide how pointy Grog the Barbarian's head is--they just might keep him alive when he has one of his "moments!"

"I know some adventurers who dislike the idea of wearing goggles.  "They'll make me look like an idiot, Bunko!" they tell me.  "Paladins don't wear glasses, Bunko," they say.  Hogwash!  The field of battle is not a fashion show.  So what if your enemies laugh?  Pick the right pair of goggles, and you'll be the one laughing last!"

"Dungeons are nasty places.  There are things down there that nobody in their right mind would want to touch with bare skin!  You're going to need a good pair of gloves...and as long as you're going to need gloves anyway, they might as well be high-quality, affordable magical gloves from Bunko's!"

Eighth Floor: Weapons And Pointy Things
« Reply #8 on: November 11, 2011, 10:24:01 PM »
"What's to be said?  The pointy end goes into the other guy, and the bigger, the better...right?  Hard as it may be to believe, the truth is that many adventurers don't pay enough attention to their weapons.  Sure, they might have a nice main weapon, but they don't consider the value of backup weapons...say, when your main weapon is a greatsword and your opponent ignores edged weapons entirely!  On top of that, there are some very useful weapon enchantments that will benefit a smart adventurer even if he never actually draws that weapon.  Naturally, Bunko's is the place to find them."

Tenth Floor: Rings and Things

"Rings are where the real power is.  Just ask that halfling fella who was in the other day.  Had a Ring of Invisibility he wanted to sell, but he kept looking over his shoulder like someone was following him.  Cedric P. Bunko does not buy stolen goods!  I told him to take his ring and go throw it in a volcano or something."

Eleventh Floor: Wands, Staves, and Rods
« Reply #11 on: November 11, 2011, 10:27:26 PM »
"Why should wizards and clerics have all the fun?  Wands and a little practice with using magic devices can give any adventurer some much-needed spellpower.  Today's Special: 20% off on a case of a dozen Wands of Cure Light Wounds..."

Eternal Wand (MIC 159, 460-10,900gp): Lets you use a 0-3rd lvl spell twice a day.  Eternal Wands cost a little more than a normal wand, and don't let you burn through huge numbers of charges per day, but they're wonderful for all-day buffs you plan to cast every day.

"Watch your step, please...it's a little cluttered down here.  I really need to get my shop goblins to give this place a good cleaning.  If you're looking for...well, stuff...this is the place.  Magic items come in all shapes and sizes, and most of them can be found down here...somewhere...if you're willing to dig deep enough!"

Shirt of Wraith Stalking (MiC 216, 6,000 gp): Hide from Undead at will with no save, even for intelligent undead.
Robe of Mysterious Conjuration (MiC, 10,000): Sacrifice a spell slot to cast an equal level Summon Monster spell, kind of like a Runestaff loaded with the summon line only it comes with free Rapid Spell built in.

Thank you very much for moving this, I love this thread. Even better if you are actually going to update it every now and then. Well done, mate, well done.

If you're gonna be editing it, can you fix the math on the Boccob's Blessed Book at long last? It's 100gp per page to fill in a spellbook, so it is, in actuality, 100,000gp worth of spellbook for 12,500gp. Makes it even better!

Stuff from MIC:
Medal of Gallantry (throat slot) is 1350gp, gives untyped +2 Diplomacy/-2 Bluff, CL3 Quickened sanctuary 3/day but you take penalties if you break it by attacking.
Piercer Cloak lets you deal +1d6 damage against enemies on lower ground 3/day, doubled if you charge; not much but it's only 900gp.
Slicksilk Belt (2000gp) lets you make Escape Artist checks to escape a grapple/pin as a move action, and grants a +10 competence bonus 1/day

The CD Bow of the Wintermoon is much worse than the one in the MiC.

Pretty much all of the Relics are better in MIC.
