The Deck of Many Things (round 4)

I found the deck again today. This time it was hiding in Cursed Lands. I pulled the card again using my back up vamp. This time I was prepared with heals, tank potions and springs. Here is what followed:
Small Hut
These are the living quarters of these villagers.  Very simple looking, it is circular in shape with pots and pans along one side, an outhouse along another and miscellaneous items scattered about.  These people live a very simple life with no luxury.  You wonder how they entertain themselves.
The Deck of Many Things lies in wait for a brave soul.
The Deck of Many Things says 'If you can find a card within me, you might be lucky enough to draw something of value. However, once you submit to chance, you put yourself at the mercy of the cards.
The Deck of Many Things winks suggestively.

>g key deck
You get the Key to the Deck of Many Things from the Deck of Many Things.
The Key to the Deck shudders menacingly.
You drop the Key to the Deck of Many Things.
Vl'aresch gives you one gold coin for your sacrifice of the Key to the Deck of Many Things. Be Forewarned : You could lose all that you own.
Viledri has been given the chance to draw from the Deck of Many Things.

>g card deck
You get a card from the Deck of Many Things.
A mystical being appears and points at you. Your senses reel as you are flung through the void to another place. The card twists and wriggles in your hands.
A great flash of light envelopes the room, blinding you momentarily.
When your vision returns, you see that the Deck of Many Things lies before you once more. It is highly recommended that you examine the deck before drawing from it. When  you are ready, simply take the card.

>g card deck
You get a card from The Deck of Many Things.
You see that you have drawn the Ten of Swords.
What this card bodes for your future, only an immortal of level 57 or above can discover for you.

>tell romani Hi Romani - can you please help me with the deck
You tell Romani 'Hi Romani - can you please help me with the deck'
Romani climbs out of your pocket.

Romani smiles happily.

>ngree roma
You nod in greeting towards Romani.

Romani wonders 'Is this your first draw?'

You shake your head.

Romani nods solemnly.

>give card romani
You give a card to Romani.

Romani says 'Okay, good luck'

Romani drops a card.

Romani sacrifices a card to Romani.
Whispering voices fill the room and a faint breeze blows from somewhere...
You somehow find the inner strength to resist the baleful influence of this card.

Romani says 'One piece of armor please'

>rem set
You stop using Set's ring of Power.

>give set roma
You give Set's ring of Power to Romani.

Romani utters the words, 'identify'.
An item held by Romani briefly luminesces.

Romani gives you Set's ring of Power.

Romani smiles happily.

Small Hut
The Deck of Many Things that lay in wait for Viledri rests here.
I chose to hand over the Set ring since if I got something good added to it then it would be useful for pretty much any evil/neutral aligned character. Getting Affects resistant:magic by -5%. added on to an item is a bit weird and not something I'd heard of before. Usually the bad pulls like that would result in having susceptible to magic added instead of a negative resist. I guess I just had an unlucky pull - at least there are plenty more Set Rings in Blasted Lands.
