{ego-item}: the object has extra effects and a descriptor name, which may be good or bad. For example, a Broad Sword of Flame or a Cloak of Vulnerability

{cursed}: the item cannot normally be removed once wielded; you must read a Scroll of Remove Curse (or in rare cases, a Scroll of *Remove Curse*), or try to break the curse with enchantment scrolls, if you wish to un-equip the item. For example, a Broad Sword of Morgul (which would pseudo as {cursed, ego-item}).

{excellent}: an ego-item that has no stat modifiers, like the aforementioned Broad Sword of Flame

{splendid}: an ego-item that has stat modifiers. For example, a Spear of Westernesse, a Helm of Beauty, or Boots of Stealth.
{excellent} an ego-item that has no apparent bonuses when wielded or worn.

A broad sword of flame is {splendid} because you will see the flames licking the blade when you wield it. {excellent} items tend to be weapons with slays and armour with resistances that do not become apparent until you attack the corresponding monster class or defend against the corresponding elemental attack.
