The treasury of Wizardry III

Reward types

The reward system in Wizardry III is much more complicated than the games before. The logic here was present since the first game, but the variables that make it complicated were never used. Until now.

Chests usually have a chance of containing items, and when they do, there is a range of possible items based on their index number. That part isn't new. Previously, though, the distribution of items was equal. In Wizardry I, the chest in reward #10 had a 10% chance of containing an item from 3-17, and each of those 15 items had an equal chance of being selected. Now, this is no longer the case.

To illustrate, look at reward #3 in the table below. This reward will come in a chest, and have up to three things inside:

  • Gold
  • An item in index range 24-37
  • An item in index range 24-56

The gold will always be in the chest, as the percent chance is 100%, but the amount of gold is random.

The second item has a 75% chance of being in the chest, and each item in the index range from 24 to 37 has an equal chance of being selected.

The third item has a 30% chance of being in the chest, and this is not dependent on the second item. You may get both items, or only one item, or neither. Should the third item appear in the chest, the distribution is not equal. There is a nearly 50% chance that the item index selected will be between 24 and 33, but only about a 12% chance of being between 47 and 56.

The internal logic for this particular item is that the base range of items is 24-36. However, there is a 40% chance of adding 10, and should that occur, there will be another 40% chance of adding 10 again, with a maximum addition of 20. Other items have different odds of each add, different amounts to add, and different maximums, but the logic is the same.

Some further notes on these tables:

  • I am not entirely sure how the trap selection logic works. Garian Guards in the fixed locations of floor 1, who drop Reward 1, seem to have alarm traps a disproportionately high amount of the time, and I don't think I've ever seen them leave poison needle traps. Other times I've seen traps that the tables suggest shouldn't be present. I've seen chests where the tables suggest the reward should be loose. Nevertheless, I'm presenting the tables as I understand them, knowing they may be inaccurate. I am reasonably confident that my interpretation of the actual rewards given is accurate, at least.
  • Some of the reward item ranges exceed the range of the item table, which only goes up to #103. These rewards can give you corrupt "items" as the engine reads in data from outside of the item tables, as it did the time I received my own party member as a reward.
  • Rewards #19 and #23 are deliberately omitted, as no monster drops them.

Common item properties

Here’s an overview of some of the item properties that are common to multiple item types, but aren’t self-explanatory. This section is duplicated from the original Wiz1 treasury post, changed where necessary.

Boltac

How much of this item Boltac’s has in stock at the start. This decreases when you buy one, and increases when you sell one, but Boltac’s will never sell you cursed items, even if he has them in stock. They persist from game to game; if you sell Boltac’s a Butterfly Knife, then delete every character from the roster and roll a new party, Boltac’s will still have that Butterfly Knife in stock until somebody buys it. Likewise, if you purchase an item of limited quantity, it will not be available for future parties playing on that disk.

Items with negative values are not available for purchase. However, they will become positive as soon as you sell one. For example, Flametongue, which has an initial stock of -3, will not be initially available to purchase, but if you sell one, 4 will become available.

AC

Equipping this item lowers your AC by this much. Negative values raise it, which is bad. A few non-armor items have this property.

Your chance to be hit in melee per strike is:
(MonsterLevel + ArmorClass) * 5%

Special: Casts

You can use the item to cast a spell. Sometimes this comes with a chance of depleting the item, which will cause it to transform into a different item. For instance, Staff of Earth has [Casts: MANIFO, 5% BROKEN ITEM], which means it can cast Manifo, but has a 5% chance of turning into a Broken Item each time you do. Items without this second designation will never be depleted.

Special: Invoke

Like casting, except that you invoke the item during a camping session and the effect is unique.

Special: Heal X

Carrying this (you don't need to equip it) heals X points on each step and each round of combat. If you have multiple healing items, only the one with the largest value takes. The Orb of Mhuuzfes is supposed to hurt you 1 point, but doesn't because the game logic selects the "bigger" default value of 0 over the orb's value of -1.

Protection: Class protection

When monsters of the protected type(s) target you, there's a 50% chance that it silently fails, causing them to lose their turn. Note that all monster actions, including breath attacks, party-hitting spells, and actions without obvious targets like running or calling, always target a random living party member. Class protection will not protect you from breath attacks or group spells that targeted a non-protected character.
 
Melee attacks are a special case, due to some strange programming. Melee attacks technically target  two party members - the first can be any living member, and the second is someone in the first three ranks. This means two separate class protection checks, and either one may nullify the attack. It's possible for the same party member to be targeted both times, in which case if they have protection there is a 75% chance of nullifying it.
 

Protection: 2x damage

Your melee strikes do double damage against monsters of the targeted classes.

Protection: Elemental protection

Breath attacks and group-targeting spells of the indicated element(s) do half damage. In addition,
  • Physical – You are immune to paralysis effects from hits. You will also never suffer critical hits.
  • Poison – You are immune to poison effects from hits.
  • Drain – You are immune to level drain.
  • Stone – You are immune to stone effects from hits.
  • Magic – When a monster targets you with any spell, the spell is silently nullified. Note that spells cast by monsters always target a randomly chosen living character, even if it's a group-affecting spell like Mahalito. Magic protection will not protect you if a group-affecting spell targets a non-protected character.


Weapons

Two tables. The first describes general properties of all weapons, and the second describes special properties of magic weapons. Magic weapons are bolded.

Hit Mod

Increase your character’s HitMod by this much, allowing you to hit more often. Negative values decrease it.

Your odds of hitting with each strike are:
(HitMod + StrengthMod + MonsterAC) * 5%

StrengthMod can be as high as 3 with maximum strength, or as low as -3 with minimum strength. There may be further modifiers based on the monster's group position, but I don't know.

Hit Dam

The weapon’s base damage, per successful hit. It can be further modified by strength, as much as +3 with maximum strength, or as low as -3 with minimum strength.

Swing Count

The number of strikes per turn. This does not stack with the number of swings your character would normally get. The higher value is the one that takes.

A Swing Count of 0 is essentially equivalent to a Swing Count of 1, since all characters are guaranteed at least 1 swing at any level.

Fighters, samurai, and lords have natural values of:
(CharacterLevel/5) + 1

Ninjas get:
(CharacterLevel/5) + 2

10 is the maximum, and all other classes get only one.

All daggers, with their AC value of -1, actually increase your AC by 1, which is bad. The wizard's staff decreases it by 1, which is good.

The Butterfly Knife appears twice because it is technically two different items with the same name, but gives the appearance of being a single item that you must flip open to unlock its power.

Consumables

These items all cast a spell when used, and may then turn into BROKEN ITEM. Any class can use any consumable.

The bestiary of Wizardry III

As before, I've split this into multiple tables, with notes duplicated from the Wiz1 bestiary, and changed where they are known to differ.

The tables are extracted from the Woz-A-Day Collection version. The cracked DSK versions all differ to some extent.

Picture

These pictures were extracted from the Apple II disk images.

Names

Each monster gets four names. A normal name, a name representing the unidentified monster, and plural variants for both.

Group Size

The number of monsters that may appear in a group. This will never exceed (MazeLevel + 4).

HP / Level

The hit dice which determine the monster’s starting HP, which rolls for each individual monster during an encounter. The dice count also serves as the monster's level.

A monster's chance to hit you in melee is (Level + YourAC) * 5% per strike.

A monster's chance to resist a successful critical hit is (Level + 10)/35.

Monsters always resist Makanito if their level is greater than 7.

Each monster’s chance to resist Lakanito is Level * 6%.

The morale of a monster group is equal to its level, multiplied by the number of monsters whose status is OK.

When your total party level exceeds the total monster morale of all groups, they will be demoralized, and monsters with the Run ability have a 65% chance to flee.

When monsters are demoralized (even if they cannot run), your chance to succeed when running is 20% higher.

Class

Class determines the odds of being friendly. However, this only applies to a select few monsters that lack elemental resistance. Any monster with any elemental resistance, including physical, will never be friendly.

Certain items, when equipped, will have a 50% chance of silently nullifying attacks from specific monster classes, should the monster decide to attack the character equipped with such an item. They do not affect spells or breath weapons.

Certain weapons deal double damage against specific monster classes.

Makanito never affects the undead. Zilwan and Dispell only affect the undead.


Attacks

Simple hit dice to determine damage when a monster hits.

Some monsters have multiple attacks, and they don’t always do the same amount of damage. For instance, the moat monster’s attack is:
1d6 1d3 1d3

That means it strikes three times, each strike has a separate chance to hit, and each landed hit inflicts the corresponding damage roll.

Special: X Breath

The monster has a breath attack of element type X. Any monster with a breath attack has a 60% chance of using it instead of attacking. Breath attacks hit all players for damage equal to half of the monster’s remaining HP. Characters equipped with an item with that elemental resistance, or who make a saving throw against breath will take half damage. If both conditions are met, they take 25% damage. Element type has no other effect. Poison breath, for instance, does not poison; it merely indicates that characters equipped with poison elemental protection will take half damage.

Special: Drain X

If you are hit, you will lose X levels, and your maxHP will be reduced to ([newLevel]*[oldMaxHP])/[MaxLev], where MaxLev is the highest level you've reached without getting drained (switching classes resets your level but not your MaxLevel). You’ll be LOST if you drop below level 1!

Special: Heal X

The monster heals this many HP per round.

Reward 1 & Reward 2

Index values used to lookup the type of treasure the monster leaves. This is always based on the monster type that was initially selected for the encounter. Monsters types that populated the rear ranks are irrelevant.

“Reward 1” is selected when the monster was fought as a random encounter, and is typically an amount of loose gold, but not always. “Reward 2” is selected when the encounter was predetermined or fixed and may indicate loose gold or a treasure chest which may or may not have items inside.

If you set off an alarm trap, then you'll get a "Reward 2" prize after winning the resulting encounter, without having to re-open the treasure chest, but the prize will be determined from the resulting encounter rather than from the initial one. This happens even if the initial chest was selected from a "Reward 1" column, which can happen in Wizardry III.

When you have a random encounter in a monster lair, you will get "Reward 1," but any gold received will be doubled.

Partner

When a monster encounter is selected, it will be in the first monster group. There is a chance that it will come with a “partner” in the second monster group. This is recursive; if the partner type is selected, then that partner also gets a chance of having its partner in the next group slot. There is a limit of 4 groups, or MazeLevel+1, whichever is lower.

For example, Looters have a partner value of 20% Witch. So if you encounter them, there is a 20% chance that Witches will spawn too. If this happens, then since Witches have a partner value of 40% Man at Arms there would be a 40% chance of Men at Arms in the third group slot, and so on.

Monsters from fixed and predetermined encounters always have a partner in the second slot, with the exception of Moat Monsters, who never do. Because of this, PO'LE, a fixed encounter, always comes in a pair, but never more than that. The first group gets a 100% partner chance, and the second gets a 0% partner chance.

The Moat Monsters exception appears to be a bug; the data suggests a partner value of 35% Moat Monster, but this means a partner ID of 0, and the partner selection logic considers this to mean "no partner" regardless of the percentage chance. The 35% Moat Monster property is useless regardless; Moat Monsters only appear in level 1, and only as fixed encounters, which would mean (if not for the bug) that they would always appear in two groups anyway, and never more due to the MazeLevel+1 limit.

 

Mage Level

The highest level of mage spell that the monster may cast.

Monster mage logic:
  • Monsters with any mage spells have a 75% of casting instead of attacking.
  • The monster then selects a random value from the right column of this table, according to the odds in the left column:

    71% 0
    20.59% 1
    5.97% 2
    1.73% 3
    0.5% 4
    0.15% 5
    0.06% 6
  • This number is subtracted from the Mage Level value, but it won’t drop below 1. 
  • Finally, the monster picks one of two spells within that level. There is a 66% chance of picking spell A, and a 34% chance of picking spell B.
  • After casting the spell, there is a 1 / (Monster group size + 2) chance that the group's mage level decreases by one point, affecting all individuals within it.

Monster mage spells (levels do not completely correspond to player spell levels):


A B
1 Katino Halito
2 Dilto Halito
3 Molito Mahalito
4 Dalto Lahalito
5 Lahalito Madalto
6 Madalto Zilwan
7 Tiltowait Tiltowait

It's curious that Zilwan is one of the spells, as it will never affect anyone in your party!

 

Priest Level

Priest spellcasting logic is a bit different.
  • A priest spellcaster who did not cast a mage spell has a 75% chance of casting a priest spell instead of attacking.
  • When casting a priest spell, monsters always select the highest value allowed.
  • There is still a 66% chance of selecting spell A and a 34% chance of selecting spell B.
  • There is a 1 / (Monster group size + 2) chance that the group's priest level decreases by one point. Same as with mage spells.


A B
1 Badios Badios
2 Montino Montino
3 Badios Badial
4 Badial Badial
5 Badialma Badi
6 Lorto Mabadi
7 Mabadi Mabadi

Spell Resistance

The monster’s percentage chance to resist certain spells. A resisted spell has no effect on the monster.

Spells subject to Spell Resistance are:
Badios, Badial, Badialma, Litokan, Lorto, Malikto, Halito, Mahalito, Molito, Dalto, Lahalito, Madalto, Zilwan, Tiltowait

Elemental Resistance 

Spell damage from group targeting-spells is cut in half if the monster resists the corresponding element. Physical resistance does not affect non-spell damage!

Element Spells
Fire Litokan, Mahalito, Lahalito
Physical Lorto, Malikto, Molito, Tiltowait
Cold Dalto, Madalto

Poison, Drain, Stone, and Magic elemental resistances do nothing, because none of the group-targeting spells in Wizardry are aligned to those elements.

Abilities

  • Sleep – The only “bad” ability. Monsters with this ability are affected by Katino. Any others are not.
  • Run – If the monster party is demoralized, then each monster with this ability has a 65% chance to run each turn.
  • Critical – When the monster lands one or more successful hits, it has a [Level * 2%] chance, up to a maximum of 50%, to instantly kill.
  • Poison – Sets poison rate to 1 on a successful hit.
  • Paralyze – Inflicts paralysis on a successful hit.
  • Call – If the monster group has fewer than 8 monsters in it, then each monster has a 75% chance of calling for help instead of attacking. The chance that a call for help will be successful is (MonsterLevel * 5%).
  • Stone – Inflicts stone status on a successful hit.
