=== Random Abilities of Objects (spoiler) ===
In addition to the ordinary weapons your character may find in the
dungeon, some of them may be endowed with additional powers such
as sustains, resistances and abilities. These items fall into three
categories: (1) artifacts; (2) ego items; and (3) ordinary items
which grant additional powers. Some of the powers granted these
items are fixed while others are random. These random abilities may
be either guaranteed or have a varying chance of being granted.
In the pages discussing the various powers granted to such items
(see the Ego Armor and Ego Weapons pages), the assignment of
random abilities is denoted by 'Extra Sustain', 'Extra Resistance'
and 'Extra Power' as applicable. When one of these terms is used,
it means that the item is granted at random an ability from the
