Magic equipment worn on the head, such as Parsons 3D glasses and Message Hats, may have their powers increased by [[Hat Magic]], or they may only be able to be created by Hat Magic.

==Known Magic Items==
+
-
 
+
-
===Eyebooks===
+
-
 
+
-
[[Stanley the Tool]] and his main subordinates ([[Wanda Firebaugh]], [[Sizemore Rockwell]], and [[Parson Gotti]]) carry [[eyebook]]s. They resemble ordinary hardback books, of variable size (see below). They were created by Stanley's trio of [[link]]ed casters, using the three disciplines of Eyemancy ([[Lookamancy]], [[Thinkamancy]], and [[Foolamancy]]). Once created, they function under their own power, and continued to do so after the trio was unlinked.

-
An eyebook is able to transcribe messages from the user's thoughts and send them to another user's Eyebook. Parson also uses his to keep a journal (called a "Klog", derived from "boo''k log''", in the same way that a real-world term "blog" is derived from "we''b log''"). Eyebooks also have the ability to change size, conveniently shrinking to be easily carried and growing to a size suitable for the user. This is not a power unique to them, however.

-
The name is a play on the iBook type of laptop computer.
+
-
 
+
-
===Eyemancer Table===
+
-
During the [[Battle for Gobwin Knob]], Stanley's forces utilized an [[Eyemancer Table]] created by the same linked casters that made the [[Eyebook]]s. The tables primary functions allowed [[Gobwin Knob]] to observe enemy troop deployments and direct their own troops from a secure, central location, with a greater degree of clarity, speed, detail, and accuracy than the maps and sand tables combined with scouts or independent Lookamancers employed by all other sides.
+
-
 
+
-
===Flying Carpet===
+
-
 
+
-
[[Prince Ansom]] has a flying carpet. It resembles a conventional carpet, either rolled up (which is Ansom's usual style of riding) or spread out. The type of magic it uses has not been specified.
+
-
 
+
-
The carpet can carry at least two riders.
+
-
 
+
-
===Message Hats===
+
-
 
+
-
[[Jetstone]] has at least one pair of message hats. They resemble top hats. Presumably, they use Hat Magic, but this has not been specified.<BR>
+
-
Stanley and Wanda communicate with them after the Battle of Gobwin Knob {{blog|2009|09|summer-updates-035}}; [[Queen Bea]] of [[Unaroyal]] used one to communicate with [[Don King]] {{blog|2009|09|summer-updates-043}}.
+
-
 
+
-
A written message may be placed into the sending hat and transmitted to the receiving hat which rumbles to alert the owner. These particular hats only work in one direction; however, other hats capable of two-way communication may exist. (Upon being given the sending hat of the pair, [[Jillian Zamussels]] asked if it was "dual use" and was told that it was "abjuration only". This appears to imply that the former term describes a two-way hat and the latter describes a one-way sending hat.) Jillian used what may have been two-way hats to communicate with Count Vinnie. http://www.erfworld.com/wiki/index.php/First_Intermission_48
+
-
 
+
-
According to 1.10, "Hoffa" is the magic word to transmit the message (perhaps because it is "lost") "Livingston" is the magic word to retrieve a message (because Dr. Livingston was famously found.)
+
-
 
+
-
===3D Glasses===
+
-
 
+
-
[[Parson|Parson's]] [[3D Glasses]] were discovered in his first [[Stupid Meal]]{{erf|1|040a}}. They grant him one of the abilities normally associated with [[Commander]]s native to [[Erfworld]]: when worn, they allow [[Parson]] to view the stats of a [[Unit]] such as [[Move]], [[Hit]], [[Attack]], and [[Defense]], as well as any Natural Abilities of the Unit.  They also allow [[Parson]] to see the name of a Unit, which is not an innate ability of [[Warlord]]s and [[Casters]].
+
-
 
+
-
===Mathamancy Bracer===
+
-
 
+
-
A [[Mathamancy Bracer|plastic bracer]] that arrived in Parson's second [[Stupid Meal]].  With a neat little groove for his calculator watch to fit into. Apparently a powerful [[Mathamancy]] based item (or possibly an [[Artifact]]{{erf|1|054}}) of great interest to [[Mathamancy]] dependent factions like [[CharlesComm]]{{erf|1|103}}{{erf|1|105}}.
+
-
 
+
-
===The Sword of Lord Hamster===
+
-
 
+
-
[[Parson's Sword]] arrived in his [[Stupid Meal|Stupid Meals]] - one part per day for three consecutive days. According to the [[Luckamancy]] Charms cereal box{{erf|1|106}}, the sword is the final item necessary to turn [[Parson]] into the "[[Perfect Warlord]]" that the [[Summon Perfect Warlord Spell|Summoning Spell]] intended him to be.  (The other items being his [[3D Glasses]] and [[Mathamancy Bracer]]). Stated abilities include [[Leadership]], [[Combat]] and [[Ruthlessness]].
+
-
 
+
-
==="Magic Dust"===
+
-
 
+
-
Wanda Firebaugh appears to use yellow dust with magical properties to change the memories of the hobgobwin Mung.{{erf|1|038}} This may have been a spell cast with a visual effect or physical component.
+
-
Similar Magic Dust is used by Maggie when she influences Stanley to appoint Parson to Chief Warlord. While it is drawn from her purse, it is unclear whether it is a magic item or simply how her Thinkamancy manifests in this instance.
+
-
 
+
-
===Bracer Blaster===
+
-
 
+
-
Prince [[Ossomer]] of [[Gobwin Knob]], (formerly [[Jetstone]]), carries a bracer created by [[Ace Hardware]] that, when the word "Tesla" is uttered, fires a "teleforce" ray (force beam action that really lights up!) that was powerful enough to knock [[Ansom]] off of his carpet.{{ref| [[LIAB 8]]}}
+
-
 
+
-
===Laurel of Napster===
+
-
 
+
-
The Laurel of [[Napster]]<sup>[[LIAB Text 11]]</sup> was created thousands of [[turn]]s ago by a three-way [[caster link]] between a [[Thinkamancer]], [[Hat Magician]] and [[Date-a-mancer]]. The Laurel, while not providing specific numbers, gives the user intuitive knowledge about the probable outcome of a given fight between two combatants. It is possible that the laurel provides concrete numbers when used by a genuine Date-a-mancer or [[Mathamancer]]. It is currently in the possession of [[Chief Warlord]] [[Duncan Scone]] of [[Faq]].
+
-
 
+
-
The Laurel of Napster is a reference to the [[Real World]] [http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Napster Napster], the file sharing software turned pay site that allowed users to share music by matching them to each other.
