This cactus is UNDER CONSTRUCTION
This article is a work in progress.
...Well, all the articles here are, in a way. But this one moreso, and the article may contain incomplete information and editor's notes.
Hmmm...
To do:
Investigate a whole lot, like the Oil Slick effect (is it still in the code, can you mod in items to use it?)

Dungeons of Dredmor sees the player character fighting through the many floors of a randomly generated dungeon. Can you guess who the dungeon belongs to?

And can we talk about those eyebrows?

Unused Items

Found within the game's itemDB.xml files are commented out definitions of items; many even still have sprites!

The level value represents the level of the Dungeon that the item most commonly spawns on.

Base Game

Weapons

Sprite Name Type Description Artifact Level Price Notes
mace10.spr Flail of Elemental Beatdown 2 (Mace) This flail comes from a world of hurt and, quite appropriately, it sends its victims to its place of manufacture. True 8 Likely from an early stage in development as the item definition lists 3 unused attributes, crit (2), dmgMin (29) and dmgMax (29).

Bolts

Sprite Name Damage Type Description Level Price Hit Effect

Thrown Weapons

Sprite Name Level Type Price Weapon (damage) Weapon (Effect) Description Notes
Dredmor thrown oil flask.png Oil Flask 2 5 100 Slashing 1 Oil Slick Put it on your salad for a delicious dish, or dump it on your enemies for fiery vengeance. Commented out with the comment "Oil isn't happy right now."
dwarven_panini_press.spr Dwarven Panini Press 9 5 Previously believed to be lost in the Dwarven Panini Mines during a particularily odd balrog invasion, the fabled Dwarven Panini Press can be used to grill many things, including faces. Likely from an early stage in development as the item definition lists 3 unused attributes, crit (2), dmgMin (31) and dmgMax (31).

No matching sprite can be found for the name given.

Next to these unused items are some brief notes from the developers on potential future throwable potions.

Potions

Four unused potions are defined, three of which don't have sprite names allocated to them. All four of these potions have TODO comments next to their spell effects as none of them were implemented.

Sprite Name Spell Price Description Notes

Developer Comments

Aside from the large number of commented out items, many object definitions have comments left in.

Fruitful Staff

<!-- dispense fruit somehow? -->

Moravician Bushdagger

<!-- probably a terrible idea -->

Unused Powers

In the base game's itemDB.xml is a commented out definition of a power called Deathly Hex. A power in Dredmor is a special ability a weapon can have that calls the spell listed in the power definition. As expected, this unused power uses the Deathly Hex spell (from the Necronomiconomist class).
