Lava Surfboard
Unique *boots*. Allows you to surf the lava!

Huge movement buff when surfing the lava - but in cost of some knockback and accuracy!

Notes: Moving on ground/acid/water with this equipment not possible - lava only! Indestructible.
EDIT: Well.. any thoughts? Is it just a piece of crap? Tell me!

Flamewall
Unique Rocket Launcher
8d6 [3/3] Unmoddable
Pickup: "They'll bury you in a lunchbox, hellspawn!"
Inventory: The name 'Ballistikraft' is etched on the side... what the hell?
Alt-Fire: Aim at ground.
Special: This gun consumes 3 (!) rockets PER SHOT.

Notes: The Flamewall's area of effect works differently.  When firing normally, the rocket goes 3 squares out.  If it hits something before it reaches that, it does minimum damage.  At the fourth square, when the rocket strikes the ground, it turns into a wave of fire, starting from length 3 at the fourth square, to length 9 (!) at square seven.  Said wave travels some more distance (I haven't determined this yet, although the original kept going until it hit a wall last I remember) before dissipating.  The alt-fire basically starts the wave off right at square one, hitting maximum spread at square four and going from there.

Lastly, I haven't come up with firing or reload times, so ammo per shot is the only way I can prevent overuse.  And that may not even be enough ammo spent to balance the way this works.

Time for me to finally submit something that ISN'T from Rise of the Triad.  Be warned, though, this still needs some fleshing out to be both true to the source AND workable in DoomRL (yes I care that it's both).

Sword of Omens
Unique Melee
7d6 fire (unmoddable)
Alt-fire: Sight Beyond Sight: Increases dodge chance by 30% and allows dodging to work regardless of movement circumstances (as in, you can dodge even if moving parallel to the line of fire).  Lasts for 10s and tires the user out afterward.
Special: Increases armor by 2 while either equipped or prepared.

Notes: The reason Pickup and Inventory quotes aren't yet supplied is because in both cases, I want to quote the series that is the origin of the weapon (in case you don't know, this thing's from ThunderCats) without being too blatant, and/or possibly break the fourth wall by wondering what this thing is doing around all these hellspawn.  Since I didn't already have quotes prepared, I chose not to supply any of my own just yet, rather than submit a crap one and ruin an idea.

My excuse for the free armor is, well, the sword's sheath is actually an arm shield (claw shield if you want to be REALLY technical).  Maybe this would work better if it was ONLY while the weapon was prepared, and not actually the equipped weapon?

Also, why does this thing do fire damage when it's very much a physical blade, you may ask?  Simple.  I note in at least the 2011 version of ThunderCats that the sword is capable of cutting through stone very easily.  And yet, I don't want this doing plasma damage as then it's too much of a kid brother to the weapons in Unholy Cathedral.  Giving it fire damage (which can destroy walls) is my compromise in this regard.  (If you're familiar with this weapon in its sources and plasma damage is actually more justified, please let me know.)

Lastly, I'm working on trying to find evidence of this sword reflecting magic attacks in its own series (either the original or the 2011 version), as that's what I REALLY want with the alt-fire - reflecting enemy projectiles.  If I can't find that, what you see here is one alternative.  The other is a blast of energy (I want to avoid this if I can because it'll be too much like the Cathedral weapons again).

All in all, what I'm trying to develop here in terms of game stats is a weapon that won't entirely replace the Cathedral weapons, but may be worth keeping around even if you have them.

Spinal Staff
Artifact(?) staff thingy
Damage: N/A
Pickup: "A shiver runs down your spine!"
Inventory: There's something strange about this staff...

Using this will put you in a state of invulnrability. You'll be immune to other attacks but it costs 5 permanant health and drains 1 health point (not permanantly, though) every turn until the invulnrability  runs out or you hit 1 health. Using this makes you tired. It can only be used once in each level, you'll have to wait for the other level to use it again if you use it.l. The invulnrability lasts as long as an invulnrability globe. Having this in your inventory stops the health drain from the
Spoiler (click to show/hide)

I was thinking of suggesting this to be put into the City of Skulls, but I think that makes it a bit too easy to get.

Angles: Modify the Spinal Staff so that it lasts until either your health reaches 1 HP or the regular Invulnerability Time wears off, and so that you can't use it if you have a current HP of 1.

DeathDealer: That's a little weak for a modded Combat Knife.

I think the point is that it can be thrown infinite times (since it always stays in your hand) but is melee, and so is made for melee-based games or AoB.

(BTW, addressing your sig: there are some master traits that can take both TaN and EE now.)

Phase knife (Sniper + Technical)
...
Damage Type:    Physical
...
Comments/special:    Ignores armor.
As a matter of fact, there's a new damage type called piercing, which completely all resistances and protection, so you can just use that. (In addition, "physical" has been split into "bullet" and "melee", just FYI.)

I think you accidentally a verb there somewhere, Hunter. And even then, it still looks a little weak to be using a Combat Knife, the Sniper Pack, and a Technical Pack.

So I recall there hasn't been many unique boot ideas;

Boots of Polarity
"Emits a weird aura"

[1/1] durability
0% speed
0% knockback

Special; Whopping 25% to all resistances.

Basicly, nothing special for being boots boots, however, extreemly nice for more defense.

Reference; HoM&M3

Though I understand the intent, I think right now the resistances given by boots apply only to hurtfloors.

Meteor Armour (exotic)
2 armour value, 10% bullet and melee, 50% fire resistances.
When it becomes damaged (when you receive the message "Your meteor armour is damaged!", produces a rocket explosion centred on you (this hurts you, but then you've got fire resistance, haven't you?)
When it is destroyed, produces a shockwave pack explosion on you.

Useful for berserkers.

+ Vile Skull
A unique Skull item, which has the effect of reviving every corpse in your view (minus the ones that archviles cannot revive either), but the enemies will fight on your side and stay near you. Probably complex to implement since it'd need code to let enemies fight each other if not yet present... but hey, doesn't it just sound like such an epic idea? :D

! Demolition Ammo Chain
We have specials of like every type of thing now, so why not of the new ammo chains? This is an ammo chain which contains ammo that works as if your weapon had a demolition ammo mod.

+ Protector
When this item is used, it will spawn a protective robot on your side, which attacks enemies with a few plasma shots if one is sighted by it. It's ignored if it's in your own line of fire. It's tough to destroy too, but it will not follow you to the next level.

^ Doomsphere
(Originally from skulltag) This exotic powerup will make the screen go red like a berserk pack, and for as long as it lasts it will double the damage you deal. (in ST it's quad damage, but this is probably overpowered in DoomRL :P)

Neat ideas, sure. Could even add a rare, unique ammo chain that pretty much works like it's nano-modded, though I don't know how overpowered it would be to have a bottomless magazine, albeit one that has to regenerate.

Why not just make it a Quad, though? Could make the powerup and screen brown, since there's only one other brown powerup, iirc. Have the powerup be rare and short-lived. It would be hard enough to get dangerous enemies clustered nearby, yet not able to punish your dash for the quad.
