Morkus from Orkus
Heh. Back during 2e I was a player in a 9 player game. We were stuck underneath a temple of Set, exploring the ruins of a temple of Osiris that the temple of Set had been built over. We found a magical longsword and didn't have any way to identify it immediately. Everyone in the group had a magic weapon. Mostly +1 or +2. I was the only exception with a +4 longsword that was an artifact that I had gained during an adventure. The only one who didn't have a magic weapon as the 2nd level Paladin henchmen of the party Paladin of Horus-Re. So we gave the weapon to her. Later we found out that it was the only +5 weapon we had ever found. Sometimes they DO get the best items.(but maybe 2 since you won't get the best items).
