> give ID card to Wizzard
You hand ye ID carde to the Feminine-Looking Wizzard. It turns the card over and examines it thoroughly, perhaps amazed by its possibilities as a fake ID for getting into that new Wizzard strip joint.
The Wizzard laughs heartily. "You have done well, mortal. I have been searching for my lost ID card for centuries. You may call me Aaron."
> give bolt cutters to Aaron
"Why thank you. Here, take this laser cannon as a token of my thanks."
Aaron A. Aaronson hands you an enormous laser cannon and instantly disappears in a puff of smoke.
> inspect laser cannon
The laser cannon looks almost exactly like the MagiTech Thundaga 3000 Mk. I you stole from the security guard from before, only now it has a small box attached to it with a strange label.
> read label
The label reads, "Backup generator in case of awesomeness shortage." If only your previous laser cannon had one of those.
Suddenly, a bright flash of light overwhelms you as the rotten apple core and the light bulb fuse with the laser cannon to produce a light cannon. You slip it into your bottomless pocket.
You've got your trusty brass lantern, a new light cannon, soiled clothes, the ID card, a crowbar, bolt cutters, that poor kid's keychain, and that useless butcher knife. You also have the following treasures: a Pot of Gold, a Beautiful Painting, a Platinum Utility Ladder, a Brass Bauble, and a Sapphire Bracelet.
