106 Magic Items and Player Characters

Magic items, how do you convey the properties of these wondrous items to the player characters? A topic brought up by Kevin Lovecraft, he writes

“I wonder how to reveal the properties of such items to players/characters when they discover them. Spout Lore seems like the obvious method, but what are some other ways to justify conveying the information? Do players enjoy discovering things by trial and error based on the description and any context available?”
