Volume 6 of Loot for Less focuses on low-level magic cloaks and daggers, items that are really only linked by the opportunity for a cool title.

The book includes ten magic cloaks. Five of these are based around racial concepts (with the obvious exception of 'elvenkind') and, frankly, do seem a bit random, although there's at least a sort of sense to the orcish and gnomish ones. The remaining five magic cloaks are rather better, conferring a range of different abilities, all of which have an obvious connection to their form. Despite the title of the book they aren't specifically - or even mainly - aimed at rogues, and can be used by a range of characters.

There are six magic daggers in the book, and these are also pretty good. Some of them are more accurately knives than true daggers, since they aren't much use in a fight, but they are all focussed around the general idea of what knives are for. As a result, most of them are more akin to wondrous items than to magic weapons, which is a useful extension of the general idea. The two that are most use in combat, incidentally, are both ideal for rogues, which makes sense for this type of weapon.

Another good book in the series if you're looking for a range of low level magic items.
