Playable on a company at a tapped Dark-Hold, Shadow-Hold, or Ruins & Lairs. During the site phase, one or two characters in that company may each tap to take control of a non-unique, non-hoard minor item of the following types: weapon, armor, shield, or helmet. You may take these items from your pay deck (reshuffle if used), discard pile, and/or sideboard.

Well, there's good news and bad news. First the good news: this is the minor item card we've all been waiting for. It gives you basically complete freedom to play minor items from anywhere in your card pool. You can use this card to get minor items from anywhere in your deck or sideboard. Unlike Cup of Farewell, it doesn't require a character to sit around in a haven and doesn't require a character to tap. Those items also don't take up slots in your hand.

The bad new is that this card can currently only fetch two cards: Saw Toothed Blade and Black-Hide Shield. Two useful items, no doubt, but how many do you really need? Many other items like Foul Smelling Paste, Orc-Draughts, and Poison cannot be fetched.

So, this card is useful for thinning your deck and for getting at your minor weapons and armor if you have some in your deck. Becuase of it's restriction to weaponry, however, we're still looking for a card to make minor items truly worth your time.
