Also, there was a lot of overlap between categories, such as mushrooms and potions both using 'colour' words.

I manually changed my flavour, using the following categories:
  • rings: precious and semi-precious stones
  • amulets: non-precious stones and manufactured materials
  • staves: wood
  • wands - body parts from magical beasts
  • rods - metal
  • mushrooms - 'textures'
  • potions - colours
I think I'll be stealing a bunch of these. Thanks!
