I loved the Obsidian Broadsword of Flame. Owain Bolton made a gift of it to Selenia before she emigrated to EC and it was lost in the crossing :-(

Ancient oil of blood.

Which can be returned to Kilhorm on Bel or you can face his terrible wrath. Do not participate in any huge battles, we will find you
Why then Selenia should DEFINITELY come to visit? Richer AND Happier you say? That must be seen to be believed.

I am definitely biased in this, but I like the Salivating Shield of Salion's Swollen Tongue.

I currently hold an item called "Grim Nose of Atamara" held by my Do'Urden.

Aramon had at one point the Rusty Suit of Honesty paired with the Majestic Buckler of Dishonesty, which always got a chuckle out of me. I'm also fond of the Honed Broadsword of Unlife that Aramon lifted off Robb Starfall not long after the death and rebirth of Selenia JeVondair. I almost considered suggesting it had a hand in that.

Can I do a request for a unique item here?

Abbot Nosferatus, founding father of Madina, one of my characters from my previous family was ' killed' by his bastard son somewhere near Madina.
He was pierced stuck on a cliff by a spear and left for death.
Perhaps a great idea for a unique item on Dwilight, the spear that killed Abbot.

I was planning for my new character Antigone to go on a quest to find the spear.

This is the part of the RP that describes that particular event:

The whole RP can be read here: https://docs.google.com/document/d/1B-SLKlaUsvaRMtMi5BkZ9wQcJ17qO4leFsGWATRYXi4/edit?usp=sharing


Quote
Abbot eventually wakes up and notices being moved by horse and cart.
Everything is black and a headache now gradually sets in.
A few minutes later the carriage stops and he feels being thrown out on the ground.
He knows he is close to shore, the smell of the oceans wind and the sounds of dashing waves won’t ever surpass him unnoticed.
After being dragged for a while the cloth is taken from his face and he scans the area.
He is on the edge of a low rocky point stretching out in the ocean and Barabrossa stands right in front of him armed with a strong iron spear.

“Prepare yer self for yer final punishment father! Me self has waited for this moment for years and finally there shall be vengance. The world has never known a monster as horrible as ye! If we can’t kill ye, time shall!”

And with all the strength in his being he pierces the spear through his father into the rocks, entering his neck and exiting his left leg into the rocky bottom.

“By ‘er mercy will ye suffer as she takes ye bit by bit, wave by wave untill nothing remains of ye, ye will fade with the the hard rocky edge yer now part of. By ‘er mercy may ye suffer for an eternity!”

And so Barbrossa leaves his father to suffer, giving him one last glance as he walks away.
Abbot remains stuck on that rocky edge until time washes him away.

I'm pretty sure unique item names are put together randomly, based on a whole series of words/names/adjectives and whatnot.

Not sure that we're manually creating unique items.

There is a topic about this here: https://forum.battlemaster.org/index.php/topic,7728.msg158136.html#msg158136

They are random yet often based on various old/significant role plays.
But it is not done through player input directly.
Putting out requests for certain items/item names would be really neat, and enrich the amount of in game refrence with items.
Yet the extra work it could take might not be worth it.

I think Vita deals with Unique Items, perhaps he has a better view on this.

Wimpie is right, each element of a unique item name is randomly generated (though there are a few influencing factors such as the world you're on, the region you're in et cetera). Probably more than a year ago, I started adding historical character names to the unique item list, to add some potential roleplay depth. Many months ago, I started splitting names to only be used on the continent most associated with that character name; the exceptions are the War Island, Far East Island, and Atamara associated character names, which are available on all islands. Many months ago, I also added and/or split original realms of a continent, and most famous/influential realms of a continent, to be associated with only that continent. I also added code for each living realm to possibly be used in unique item names. Extra descriptive words were also added (weapon names, references to BM religions et cetera).

Nosferatus is also right, there have been manually-created unique items in the past. But only as part of GM roleplay interactions, such as the Zuma creating 3 religious artifacts for SA on Dwilight, or the most recent invasion corrupting the body parts of nobles slain by daimons on BT into disturbing/daimonic unique items.

I'm not inclined to manually create unique items based upon forum requests. Over a year/many months ago, I also increased chance of acquiring a unique item on each island, and having watched battle reports since then, I think each island has plenty of unique items with in-game references between historical character names, regions, original realms, famous realms, and living realms.
