origami "gentlemen's" magazine
This is a tiny magazine covering subject matter that would appeal to gentlemen -- you know, cars, motorcycles, power tools, that kind of thing. I hear there are some great articles in here. That's probably why your familiar is interested in it.
Type: familiar equipment
Cannot be discarded
+10 lbs. of Ghuol Whelp
NOTE: This item cannot be equipped while in Hardcore.
(In-game plural: origami "gentlemen's" magazines)

Displays one of the following messages and restores some HP/MP:
- <name> opens the magazine, opens a fold-out in the middle, and turns it sideways. You rest a few minutes while you wait for <name> to finish reading -- man, that must be a long article!
- <name> reads an article about spiritual healing, then demonstrates the technique on you. Thank goodness it wasn't an article on sexual healing.
- You spend a few minutes relaxing as you and <name> fill out a bawdy crossword puzzle in the "gentlemen's" magazine.
- <name> reads you an article about a new line of magic-powered, rechargable power tools. You grunt appreciatively.
- <name> reads you a racy piece of short fiction. You take a minute to daydream, and feel refreshed when you snap back to reality (Whoops! There goes gravity!).
- <name> reads you a selection of dirty jokes. You laugh heartily, and feel renewed and refreshed.
- <name> reads an article about great new pickup lines and practices a few on you. You laugh heartily, and feel relaxed and refreshed when you're done.
- You rest for a minute as <name> reads you an informative article about politics and the Council of Loathing.
|You unfold the pieces of paper, if you know what I mean.
Blushing, you re-fold them into a new object.
- Item will act roughly 50% of the time.
- This does not actually increase the weight of a Ghuol Whelp or similar familiar. The item adds a separate ability that is functionally equivalent to a 10 pound Ghuol Whelp.
- The line "...snap back to reality (Whoops! There goes gravity!)." is a lyric from the Eminem song "Lose Yourself."
- The grunt from the power tools line is a reference to Tim Allen's character Tim "The Tool Man" Taylor from the sitcom Home Improvement.
- "Sexual Healing" was a hit song by Marvin Gaye.
- Most gentlemen say that they read these magazines for the articles.
