Weightier weapons like Teratol will become powerful once your str and dex are higher, so that you get more blows per turn. Store in house for now. Once you've accumulated several, you can discard the...

Of course, blundering into a floating eye because all you had was a torch used to be an insta-death. Now wandering around with radius-1 light is just annoying. And it's not even that bad, as most...
