Items[]

There are certain items on Discworld that will increase your unarmed damage. Testing is needed to determine how much of an effect each item has on unarmed combat.

Spells[]

Old Bellicus' Brazen Knuckles is an offensive wizard spell which can be used to change your knuckles into brass for a few minutes. This increases damage when fighting unarmed.

However, the spell only lasts a few minutes and you will need a steady supply of scrolls and brass rings to use it. The skills needed are relatively modest for a wizard spell, around 160 bonus for the magic.methods skills, magic.spells.offensive for speed of casting and (probably) duration and magic.item.scrolls to use scrolls.
