Many creatures in the game have mechanics that can cause loss of player-wielded weapons or shields and also items in inventory. This is a list of all such creatures and how they can cause such item loss.

In the event of an item being disarmed via some of these abilities, the Loresong on an item will only show the name of the owner if the item was registered prior to being dropped. Also, an item that is dropped due to creature mechanics should be subject to the use of the RECOVER verb or the recover system with the Adventurer's Guild.

Threat descriptions

  • Disarm: The Disarm Weapon maneuver, which knocks a player's weapon out of their hands.
  • Brace (1214), which includes a disarm ability.
  • Itchy curse: The "itch" variant of the Curse (715) spell, which forces a player to empty their hands and scratch themselves.
  • Weapon fire: The Weapon Fire (915) spell, which causes a player's weapon to flare and damage them. While this does not force the weapon to drop on its own, it tempts the player to do so in order to avoid death.
  • Lunge/grapple: A creature maneuver in which the creature lunges at and grapples with a player's hand, potentially injuring the hand and causing whatever item the hand is holding to drop.
  • Corpse loot: Ithzir-family creatures can loot items off your dead body. This includes worn items, held items, and containered items. However, they will not take double-bagged items (items in containers inside other containers).
  • Hisskra scales: The Hisskra family of creatures are covered in hard scales which can cause melee weapons to vibrate out of an attacker's hands upon impact.
  • Outright theft: The Gremlin and Gremlock family creatures will steal silvers, gems, magical items, herbs, and lockpicks off your worn inventory as well as from in open and closed containers, whether dead or alive. Remove and double-bag items of value to prevent thievery.
