Dividing treasure

Some magic items, especially magic armor and weapons, can be cursed. You won’t discover the cursed nature until you attempt to use the item, weapon or armor in actual combat (simply holding it or trying it on won’t reveal the curse). You may potentially be able to pay a high-level magic user or cleric to investigate the item.

Some magic items, such as wands, have a finite number of uses (called charges). You can’t learn how many charges are loaded into the item without paying a high-level magic user or cleric to inspect the item.
