You see a snake god's wristguard (Def:14, magic level +3).
It can only be wielded properly by sorcerers and druids of level 100 or higher.
It weighs 28.00 oz.
It shows your spells and can also shield against attacks when worn.
This is a wristguard, but it can be considered a "Spellbook" type item, because it has the same attributes as one (worn in the shield slot, shows spells and boosts magic levels). Due to having 2 points less in defence than the Spellbook of Dark Mysteries, it's only used as a shield by those who cannot afford the Spellbook of Dark Mysteries. Due to its rarity and appearance, it is often also used as a decorative item.
