Items: Weapons

Note that not all monsters or places to find the weapons are listed. Also this is no way a complete list of weapons and the "rating" is entirely based on my own opinion. I've written this in the span of an evening with just my memory for reference, so there are many items that I've forgotten. Send me mail about those items you see missing!
